Please Help,i Am So Confused And Scared

Recommended Posts

Hello every one,

I am so scared and confused.

My son is on a gfdfsf diet,he tried oats in one period but off oats for 3 months now.

His mood is very much up and down.He is studying very hard and some of his exams is A and sometimes he gets F in the same subjects that he is very good at.

Some times he can not concentrate on a very very simple problem.

Please tell me what else can be the reason?

can vitamin B complex be the reason?

Other food intolerances could cause similar problems. Some kids have trouble processing things high in phenols (artificial flavors, sweeteners and food dyes). There may be an inherent enzyme deficiency at work, a problem converting sulphur to sulfate or even a deficit of sulfate ions in the body (which all are key to how the liver processes daily toxins). All of these can cause the problems you are describing.

You may want to look into the Feingold diet or at least try eliminating unnecessary non-food items (like the dyes and other processed foods that are loaded with synthetic chemicals and MSG).

Some people swear by a sub-lingual B-12 and that may be a contributing factor but more than likely, it's yet another symptom and not the true culprit behind what you are seeing.

The best advice I could give is to take a deep breath and start devising a game plan as to how to figure this out. Start by looking at what he is eating and look to see if there is anything that is questionable as far as a gluten/dairy/soy exposure. From there, try removing all food colorings, MSG, artificial sweeteners, nitrates and nitrites for a few weeks and document what you observe.

As things progress, you *may* want to try giving him a bath with Epsom salt on days that he seems to have trouble. The skin will absorb magnesium sulfate directy for use in sulfation (it doesn't have to be converted by the body from sulfur to sulfate). If that helps, it's a sulfation problem. And please understand that this isn't something that should be done daily as magnesium sulfate is very alkaline and frequent use can cause rashes.

I'm sorry that you're going through this with your son. It's such a hard thing to see them struggle and feel helpless about it. Hopefully, you'll find some things to help him soon.
