A note from Bobby-Jo:
Recently I've been focusing on working with children with ADD, behavioural disorders, ADHD, anxiety, and sensory and sleep disturbances. On a personal level this area of naturopathic care is particularly close to my heart.
Did you know it only takes 26 seconds for chemicals to enter the blood stream and start playing havoc within our bodies!?
I have seen first hand the immediate behavioural changes within my own kids after consumption of food additives. I know all the letters, numbers and long unpronounceable names on food labels can seem confusing and complicated, however some are worse than others and I can help guide you to make informed choices. Making a few simple changes can make a significant difference to behaviour and general health.
If this rings alarm bells for you or a little one you know, come in for a chat or book a consultation today. Rest assured there is a lot we can do with these issues from both a dietary and supplemental perspective.
I'd love to work together towards better health for your family.
Some common additives to avoid include:
102 Tartrazine, yellow #5, CI 19140
