Change Thrivers Tip by Cheryl Healy:
Sensitive children including ADHD and ADD kids have a higher sensory perception than norm. The can multi-task naturally and process more information which is suited to the exponentially increasing amount of information they are bombarded with.
Symptoms are mostly physical and usually a reaction to some kind of allergy. Allergies are extremely common in sensitive and ADHD children. They could be allergic to variety of things such as food preservatives, cleaning products, other chemicals and toxins.
You might like to check your children for three things:
- Food Allergies
- Leaky gut – a name used to describe intestinal or bowel hyperpermeability. Increased intestinal permeability begins with inflammation and irritation to the lining of the digestive tract. Over time, the intestinal lining begins to wear and break down. This forms large gaps between your intestinal cells which then allow toxins, pathogens, and undigested food particles to enter your bloodstream.
