Allergies and food intolerances can cause anxiety, tantrums, hyperactivity and all types of behavior problems. They can also exacerbate existing medical problems such as asthma, seizures, ear infections, sinus issues as well as cognition. While traditional allergy testing is a good start, it does not show all types of food problems. Many may be digestive in nature. The Feingold Diet and literature is helpful in finding the offenders. Other tests are available but often not paid for by insurance. We are often able to help parents with these issues or give appropriate referrals.
