FOOD AFFECTS BEHAVIOUR

DID YOU KNOW?

Food and/or chemical sensitivities and nutritional deficiencies affect behaviour.

GUT FUNCTION

Imbalance of gut flora plays a role in childrens behaviour. Food choices influence gut flora.

90% of seratonin (happy hormone) is made in the gut; and

70% of the immune system is in the gut.

DEFICIENCIES
Children with optimal intake of omega-3 fatty acids (found in fish oils)  have mimimum risk of behavioural and learning problems. Correct dosage is key. 

ACHIEVING THE IMPOSSIBLE

Changing a child's diet can be tricky as children tend to be picky eaters.

I have developed strategies to assist families in addressing nutritional deficiencies, identify food sensitivities and balancing gut flora, whilst aiming to broaden the child's diet. Sessions involve one-on-one coaching where the therapist will address behaviour and/or health concerns and will finding solutions that will work for your family unit. 

RESULTS

The benefits of a more balanced and emotionally stable child and the knock-on effect it has on the entire family, is well worth the efforts.

Each and every child and family unit is unique, and that is how, I believe, they should be treated.
