3 Signs That Your Child May Have Neurological Disturbances

We have something special for you today. Dr. Chun Wong has released a special offer on a Hair Test Analysis Kit that can help identify toxic metals in the body as well as mineral deficiencies. If you’d like to order the test, or simply read a little bit more about it, you can do so by clicking here.

neurological disorders and autismIt’s sometimes hard for a parent to be willing to concede to the idea that their child may have a neurological disorder. When the child is misbehaving, it’s much easier for them to blame it on the sugar intake, their friends, or even themselves before they even want to begin to entertain the idea that there may be something wrong chemically. Just because your child has a neurological disorder, does not mean that they are crazy. Just as a diabetic has an insulin deficiency, Autism or other neurological disordered children often have a chemical imbalance.

But how do you know if the child is just having bad behavior? Could it really be just their friends or sugar intake that is affecting it? Or, is it something more? Here are some sure fire signs to look for.

1. Fatigue

After a long day of play, we expect (and hope!) our kids are tired enough to crash for the night. However, what do you do if your child is always tired all of the time? This could be due to a number of factors including poor circulation, low O2 levels, or even anemia, the absence of enough healthy red blood cells. Also, fatigue can be a result of poor functioning digestive system as well as anxiety.

2. Depression / Anxiety

Children get depression and anxiety just as adults do. It’s also been recently found that depression and anxiety, affect the same areas of the brain and physical pain. So, when you’re so depressed, “it hurts”? You’re actually not crazy. In children, sometimes it’s hard to detect depression. As a parent, you’d like to think that you “know”.  But sometimes children don’t know how to react to these feelings of anxiety. Depending on the child, they may not express these feelings. Or, they may over express them. Depression and Anxiety is chemically due to the imbalance of neurotransmitters, or chemicals that carry messages to the brain. If there’s not enough “happy stuff” flowing in the brain, then you or your child is going to feel sad, depressed, or anxious. Depression and Anxiety can both be caused by poor gut function or fatigue, which are contributing factors to mental health.

3. Poor Gut Function

When we consume food, the goal is to feed our bodies with the stuff that it needs to be healthy. If we have a diet rich in sugars, then these car corrode arteries, and cause a lot of health problems. However, even when we do eat good foods, if our bodies aren’t digesting them properly, then we aren’t getting the nutrients that we need anyway. You can consume all of the Vitamin C and Fiber in the world, but if your digestive system isn’t working and pulling the fiber and vitamins from your foods to deliver to your body, then you’re not getting the nutrients that you need. It’s essential that the gut is working properly, is not overly acidic, and is delivering nutrients in order to have a functioning body overall. Poor gut function can be caused by anxiety and fatigue.

What you might have noticed is that each of these symptoms can be caused by each other. For example, fatigue can be a sub-symptom of depression. Depression and Anxiety can be a sub-symptom of fatigue. Poor gut function can be caused by fatigue or depression. And depression can be a cause of fatigue or poor digestive system function. It seems like a vicious cycle, and it can be. The key is to find the source of the problem so that it can be treated.

A Hair Analysis Test can be a good place to start as it can detect toxic levels of metals or other damaging materials in the body. It is often chemical deficiencies and the existence of toxic chemicals that cause the body to not work properly. It can also be a key to vitamin and mineral deficiency. So, if you’re wondering where to start, how about at the beginning?

Hair Analysis and Other Tests For Heavy Metals

One of the largest similarities in children with Autism is the level of toxic metals. Although some testing may not show up front that there are toxic levels of metals in the body, there are ways in which metals can be tested for.

As research develops, there are more and more ways to discover dysfunctions in the bodies of people.

A Hair Analysis, often seen on TV Shows like CSI, measures the amount of minerals and metals in the body. Researchers support that hair analysis can help detect mineral deficiencies as well as heavy metal poisoning.

In 2003, a study was published in the International Journal of Toxicology. The hair from infants who got their first haircuts were studied, and it was found that “hair mercury levels in autistic infants were significantly lower than those in healthy children. The authors wrote that ‘These data cast doubt on the efficacy of traditional hair analysis as a measure of total mercury exposure in a subset of the population’.”

In addition to Hair Analysis, there are several other ways in which heavy metals can be detected in the body. There are approximately 35 metals that are toxic to the body, and Mercury is one of the most threatening.

Some of the other testing methods include:

Urine Heavy Metal Test
Blood Sample
Fingernail Testing

All of these can be key indicators that the mineral and chemical balances are off, or that the toxicity level of the body is up. Before getting any test, it’s always the best bet to talk to your doctor.

Next week, we’re going to take a hard look at some of the ways that a toxic body can be detoxed and repaired.  It’s true that finding the problem is half the battle, and we’re going to help you with the second half, too! Don’t you worry.
