Food, Mood & Behavior

Food has the power to impact

how we think... how we feel... what we do

Have you noticed that some foods make you more irritable, excited, happy or calm?

Have you noticed that some foods increase your energy while other foods zap it?

Have you noticed that some foods just don't feel good in your body?

Children have similar experiences but they cannot always identify or express how they feel.

Where food meets physiology, sometimes it's a mystery.

Bloating, gas, constipation, diarrhea, rashes and headaches are some obvious physical symptoms that your body isn't tolerating one or more foods very well.

Emotional and behavioral symptoms linked to food may be less obvious.

Frequent tantrums, emotional outbursts, extreme defiance, difficulty focusing and following directions, and ADD/ADHD/ASD can all be improved with a whole foods approach. Because every body is unique, there is no one-size-fits-all food plan, but the most common triggers are gluten, dairy, sugar and artificial food dyes. Research shows that each one impacts cognitive functioning in sensitive people. Your child may have other food triggers that are less common also. Once you discover which foods are not working for your child's body, you can begin to phase them out. Your child's physical and emotional health will improve.
