Poor nutrition is a big threat to brain development, because without the necessary building blocks, the brain can’t function properly. When the brain isn’t optimally equipped, the success rate of traditional therapies is reduced and, in many cases, undesirable symptoms commonly associated with neurobehavioral disorders are exacerbated.
Replace missing nutrients and restore depleted vitamin stores either via nutritionally impactful foods (preferred) or supplements. For example, if you are removing gluten, you will replace wheat bread with gluten-free bread. If you have eliminated casein by removing dairy products from the diet, add a calcium supplement until you learn which vegetables are rich sources of calcium.
Seek the advice of your physician or nutritionist if you need help developing a balanced diet. There are also many books available on the market which can help with your meal planning and guide you to boosting brain power through food.
Some of the supplements we are currently using*:
Omega 3 plus Vitamin D3
