Please join me in learning about the hidden link between food sensitivities and learning disabilities. You can sign up for the replay below:

I interviewed Stephen Cowan MD, who told us how food allergies and sensitivities can be a “learning disability”.

He offered a unique perspective within the framework of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

The Hidden Link Between Food Sensitivities and Learning DisabilitiesFood is information. If our bodies don’t understand this “information”, then the food just sits there.

The “triple warmer” is fired up to create heat to process this information, and this creates inflammation.

The over-processed, overstimulating fast foods we eat in our fast-paced world are contributing to learning disabilities in our children.

Hidden food sensitivities can cause symptoms such as:

  • Inability to pay attention
  • Distractability
  • Behavioral problems
  • Irritability
  • Aggression
  • Fatigue

Traditional Chinese Medicine recognizes that each food has its own thermo-energetic properties that can be used to treat health problems.

In treating children, the Chinese medicine classics emphasize that diet should always be considered the first line of therapeutics before prescribing medications.
