Question: My 9-year-old son has an extremely low tolerance for certain processed foods. Should I get him tested for food sensitivities?
Dr. Brownstein's Answer:
I have seen a child’s behavior change for the worse after eating poor-quality foods. What constitutes poor-quality food? Any food that is made from refined products, including refined sugar, salt, oils, and flour, as well as food that contains artificial preservatives and sweeteners is low quality. Eating poor quality food leads to poor behavior and poor health. Eating nutritious food does the opposite.
Unfortunately, conventional medicine does not recognize these common-sense ideas. Many patients are being medicated with stimulants to treat ADHD when they simply need to eat a better diet. NAET, an acupressure treatment for food and environmental allergies, can help both diagnose and treat food allergies. However, NAET is no substitute for quality food.
