Food allergies and ADHD do go hand in hand. At
times, ADHD allergies and food allergies have some of the same
symptoms. Therefore, ADHD kids and non-ADHD kids could have the same
symptoms in terms of food allergies and ADHD. There are also ADHD
treatments that are herbal medicines and it has been shown that it
reduces allergies and improves your child’s behavioral performance.
Food Allergies, what are they and how do they
differ from other allergies? Unlike when a child is allergic to bee
sting, every time the bee stings him, he will have a reaction. Food
allergies doesn’t work the same way. The symptoms are very hard to
distinguish because a child has to eat something that he is allergic
of. At times, his body might have a reaction. Other times, it
doesn’t. Sometimes, when looking for
natural ADHD treatments, you only
have to look as close as your kitchen.
Still, here’s a list of ADHD diet that can be of
big help for ADHD kids. Everything on the list must be followed for
two weeks then you have to bring them back on the ADHD diet:
NO DAIRY - It is the most important
restriction for two weeks. Instead, give him rice milk or almond
milk. These alternatives are most likely organic and not
pasteurized and that’s what we are looking for. It still has
enzymes and most likely digested better than pasteurized milk.
WATER - And lots of it. You need it to
keep rehydrated and keep the stress away from your child. It
also keeps him healthy.
NO YELLOW FOODS - Yellow corn and Yellow
squash are on top of the list. Bananas may be white but never
eat the yellow peel. Studies shows that 1 of a thousand of
people has allergic problems with the stuff that makes these
foods yellow. It may be pretty but you can’t.
NO JUNK FOODS - They are very high in
sugar content and carbohydrates. And if these are eaten by your
child together, we might have a bit of a mess. These two
together makes a child hyperactive ad gets their brains all
fuzzy and stuff. Don’t eat junk foods and your brain will be
NO FRUIT JUICES - Those powdered ones
have a lot of sugar than you actually think. A glass of apple
juice contains the sugar content of 8 apples! Can you imagine
your child having a body full of sugar? For now, if you have got
to have fruit juices, make sure to dilute it in half water.
CUT SUGAR INTAKE - It is better if you
cut it down to zero but try not to go crazy. Sugar is just about
everything this is. If you can restrict, cut it down by just 90%
ENOUGH OF THE CHOCOLATES - Not more than
a bar a week. I know it is the favorite treat of every child
but, containing 220 different chemicals a treat may not be great
for your child’s body.
NO NUTRASWEET - Non-negotiable. Not just
for 2 weeks but for the rest. It was never good for you nor for
your brain. Period. Nutrasweet, out.
NO PROCESSED MEAT AND NO MSG - Only get
canned goods that says “turkey and water” or the like. And also
not just for two weeks. These meats have chemicals listed that
aren’t likely good for the body. And if you can’t pronounce the
chemicals, then don’t buy them.
FRIED FOODS CUT DOWN - This shiny food
stuff has trans-fats, and these are different from good fatty
acids, that’s a note. You can either have the good or bad but it
has the same space in your brain. Cut the fried foods by 90%.
Not just for two weeks.
Just eat the foods that are likely more
natural. It does well for your brain and also makes your body
healthy and junky free. Have these as your diet for two weeks (the
others, longer) and you’ll be good to go. Many people find such
dramatic results with diet that they tout it as an
