Creating Healthy Minds in Children: Nutritional & Environmental Factors.
Between the ages of twelve and seventeen, one in five youth will develop a diagnosable mental health issue. Psychological, social and nutritional support are critical to prevent mental illness and ensure proper neuro-development. In this talk Dr. Gannage explains that mental health conditions are not solely genetic, but also an expression of a child's interaction with his or her environment.
Nutritional Support for Kids with Autism & Aspergers
presented by Natasha Klemm & Dr. John Gannage, MD. May 28, 2014, Toronto.
ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) affects 1 in 88 children. Over 79% of children with ASD don't have an identified genetic abnormality leading to impaired neurological development. Instead, ASD is a whole body disease, composed of nutrient deficiencies and functional abnormalities throughout the body. Diet and nutritional therapies show promise in treating these abnormalities, enhancing neurodevelopment and improving behaviours. This lecture explores the basics of neurodevelopment and nutrition, nutritional deficiencies and food allergies/sensitivities as they apply to ASD. It also discusses strategies for supporting your child's unique nutritional needs.
