The Truth about Learning and Behavioral Disorders

Incidents of behavioral and learning disorders have literally quadrupled in the past 15 years. 1 in every 7 children in America is struggling with some sort of learning or developmental disorder. What’s causing this?

The answer may shock you.

Common Types of Learning and Behavioral Disorders in Children

  1. Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder affects millions of school-aged children. Symptoms of this disorder include problems with impulse control, fidgety behavior, lack of listening ability, forgetfulness, difficulty absorbing new information, non-stop talking, and tantrums.

  1. Oppositional Defiant Disorder

1 in 10 children are diagnosed with Oppositional Defiant Disorder. Symptoms of this behavioral disorder include arguing with authority figures, frequent temper tantrums, purposefully antagonizing others, low self-esteem, and refusal to obey rules. Children with this disorder often act out with physical aggression on their peers, siblings, and classmates.

  1. Autism Spectrum Disorder

Autism spectrum disorder is a complex neurological and physiological disorder ranging from high functioning Asperger’s syndrome to catatonic, unresponsive autism.

Children with ASD not only experience learning and behavioral problems, they often also have gastrointestinal and metabolic disorders as well.

ASD is a whole-body disorder with symptoms such as learning difficulties, sensory processing problems, impulse control, gestures, hand flapping, toe-walking, rituals, OCD, social boundary confusion, inappropriate eye contact, and inability to “read” social cues, facial expressions, and gestures.

  1. Conduct Disorder

Children with conduct disorder have similar issues of those with oppositional defiant disorder. This behavior disorder is characterized by truancy, delinquency, drug and alcohol abuse at a young age, aggression, physical and sexual abuse of peers, lying, and lack of empathy for others.

  1. Sensory Processing Disorder

Sensory processing disorder is a neurological condition whereby the child is unable to successfully interpret sensory information. Similar in symptoms to ADHD and autism, the child with sensory processing disorder has trouble making sense of his or her world.

Words, light, sound, texture, taste, and smell baffle and confuse the child as his or her brain struggles to interpret the information. Symptoms include clumsiness, poor coordination, extreme sensitivity to light and sound or, on the other end, inability to perceive certain sensations, such as hot or cold.

  1. Dyslexia

Dyslexia is a neurological language processing disorder. Often lumped into the learning disorder category, children with dyslexia often have difficulty with writing, speaking, and information processing. Younger children will often confuse words and, for instance, say “flutterby” instead of “butterfly”.

When they come of school age, they often have trouble gripping a pencil, writing letters accurately, and learning spelling rules. Like children with Asperger’s syndrome, children with dyslexia will often take things literally and have difficulty understanding non-literal language such as idioms, puns, and jokes.

  1. Dyscalculia

Dyscalculia is similar to dyslexia only this learning disorder affects the ability to understand numbers and mathematical concepts. Children with dyscalculia often have difficulty learning to count and applying numbers to the real world. Simple math facts such as adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing is difficult for this child. Numbers are often confused. She may look at “105” on the page but say aloud, “501”.

Why So Many Children Develop Learning Disorders

It is estimated that 1 in every 7 children have some type of learning or behavioral disorder. In the past ten years alone, incidents of ADHD and autism have risen 17%. According to statistics, autism has quadrupled since 1997 with rates skyrocketing from 0.19% of children to 0.74% of children.

What’s going on here? Doctors, pediatricians, psychiatrists, and clinicians continually say they do not understand why these behavioral and learning disorders are on the rise. Here at Health Scams Exposed, we know better. Something just isn’t making sense here. That’s why we did our research and what we found is going to shock you.

In 1998, the Physicians for Social Responsibility brought a bright shining light down upon the secret cause of learning and developmental disorders in children. They published a report called, “In Harm’s Way: Toxic Threats to Child Development.” In it, it explains the true cause of these pervasive disorders.

Though many behavioral disorders have a genetic predisposition, chemicals from vaccinations, toxic food, and the environment are causing these disorders to rise to the surface at an alarming rate.

  • Vaccinations

The debate about the connection between vaccinations and neurological damage has raged on for the past 15 years. Instead of looking at a bunch of facts, figures, and statistics, let’s take a look at common sense. The amount of vaccinations a child is required to receive before entering school has quadrupled in the past 30 years. So have the rates of autism, ADHD, and other learning disorders.

Coincidence? We don’t think so.

Vaccines contain mercury, aluminum, and formaldehyde that over-activate the immune system and cause inflammation in the brain. Aluminum has been noted to cause Alzheimer’s disease. Formaldehyde causes brain damage and is a known carcinogen.

Thimerosal is the mercury preservative found in vaccines is a potent neurotoxin that has been linked to the development of autism. In early 2002, a controversial report was released in the New York Times called the “Not So Crackpot Autism Theory” that highlights the details about vaccinations and autism.

  • Food

Our food is toxic and disgusting. We’re not exaggerating here. Food isn’t even food anymore. It’s fast, boxed, canned, frozen, and packed with dangerous chemicals, food dyes, additives, and preservatives that have proven to cause health problems and behavioral disorders in children.

For example:

    • Aspartame

Aspartame, found in candy, processed foods, yogurt (of all things), and diet soda, is one of the worst chemical sweeteners you can put into your body. Aspartame is a potent neurotoxin that has been linked to the development of multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, dementia, and hypoglycemia. Studies have also noted that aspartame worsens behavioral and learning disorders in children.

    • MSG

Monosodium glutamate is commonly found in pre-packaged boxed and frozen foods. MSG is an “excitotoxin” that causes the brain cells to fire uncontrollably, leading to premature brain cell death.

    • Food Dyes

Food dyes are commonly found in sugary cereals, candy, and soda and are highly toxic to the developing brain. There are even hidden dangers in macaroni and cheese. Red #40 and Yellow #5 have been shown to increase hyperactivity, aggression, and insomnia in young children.

    • High Fructose Corn Syrup

This synthetic sweetener has not only been linked to obesity but a startling array of behavioral and cognitive dysfunctions. HFCS has been known to cause hyperactivity, mood swings, learning disorders, tantrums, and aggression.

  • Environment

Our environment is loaded with dangerous neurotoxins that affect learning and behavior in children and adults. The household cleaning products, make-up, shampoo, and air fresheners you use every day could be doing serious damage to your health. If you’ve never read the back of your body lotion, laundry detergent or hair gel, you should start right now. These things are chock full of chemicals that wreck havoc with your immune, neurological, and metabolic system.

Treating Behavioral Disorders Naturally

  • Clean Diet

The first step to treating behavioral disorders naturally is eliminating as many toxins as possible from the environment. This means slowly tapering off processed convenience foods and replacing them with healthier alternatives. If your child has any type of behavioral or learning disability, you must clean up his diet. It is imperative to improving his behavior, learning, and ability to integrate into society.

Whole foods such as organic vegetables, fruits, non-gluten grains, nuts, seeds, organic meat, poultry, wild-caught fish, and healthy fats are filled with the essential nutrients your child’s growing brain desperately needs to function optimally.

For many children with behavioral disorders, a gluten free-casein free diet works wonders in improving attention, cooperation, learning, and sleep. Food dyes, MSG, and other additives should not be present in your child’s diet. There are plenty of snacks, drinks, and candies that are made more naturally without these preservatives. Substitute with those instead.

  • Dietary Supplements

Children with learning and behavioral disorders almost always have one or more nutritional deficiencies due to poor diet and impaired digestion.

    • Probiotics

Probiotics are essential to a malnourished gut. Adding a high-quality, preservative-free probiotic supplement to your child’s diet will reseed his gut, aid his digestion, and improve his ability to learn and focus.

    • Vitamin D3

Millions of children are critically deficient in vitamin D due to lack of adequate sunlight exposure. Adding a vitamin D3 supplement to your child’s diet helps improve both neurological and immune system health.

    • Krill Oil

The developing brain needs good fats to survive and thrive. Omega 3 krill oil helps prevent brain inflammation and support neurological function.

    • Chelated Magnesium

Magnesium deficiency is the most common mineral deficiency in the United States. Magnesium is responsible for over 300 enzymatic reactions in the body. Without it, neurological and behavioral problems result.

  • Clean Environment

Children with learning disorders are more susceptible to the toxins in their environment due to malfunctioning immune system, leaky gut syndrome, and multiple chemical sensitivities. Get rid of any toxic cleaning products, cosmetics, and air fresheners in your home. You don’t need them. You can make your own cleaning products or purchase chemical-free alternatives to what you’re using now.

Also, you have no need for chemical air fresheners. Air fresheners are just a scam designed to get you to buy an unnecessary product.

As far as cosmetics go, you have plenty of natural options. Castile soap can be used in place of shampoo, body wash, and shaving cream. Coconut oil can be used as a conditioner for dry hair. Mineral make-up provides just as much coverage without all the dangerous chemicals.

In addition to dietary and environmental changes, your child needs good support from teachers, family members, and care-givers if he is to be successful. She may need to routinely see a talk therapist, social worker or neurologist to learn how to interact with and interpret her world appropriately.

If your child is struggling with a learning or behavioral disorder, rest assured, it is not your fault. The good news is, there is something you can do about it. You’re in control. A combination of dietary changes, environmental detoxification, and therapy can do wonders for your child. Don’t give up hope. There is light at the end of the tunnel and you are its source.
