Food allergies in children linked to bullying, abuse: study
by PF Louis
(NaturalNews) A recent study conducted by researchers at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai discovered by survey that almost a third of children with allergies are bullied by other children.
The survey was conducted on 251 pairs of parent and their children with allergies, and was reported in the online issue of Pediatrics on December 24th of 2012. Nearly half the parents were not aware of their child's being bullied, but they all reported higher levels of stress and a lower quality of life. 
So what picture does this conclusion paint? An eight year old in the cafeteria line refuses a food because he's allergic to it, then school bully Buck and his buddies lean over to taunt and threaten the kid? As this increases exponentially over time, the food allergy kid gets more withdrawn and neurotic?
Then he's prescribed anti-depressants, goes totally bonkers and kills a bunch of his school mates while the fact of psychotropic drug intervention goes undisclosed in the mainstream media? This is the overly simplified not-quite fully informed knee jerk psychological and psychiatric response on which a few others who have bothered to dig deeper decidedly disagree.
Unfortunately, their insights get little press. There's too much money involved with selling and advertising pharmaceuticals to follow up on mostly nutritional discoveries. That would also discourage forcing immune stifling antibiotics and vaccinations onto infants and young children to keep them as constant customers.
It's the gut-brain connection; all health begins in the gutThis principle has been part of Traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries. The western queen of the gut-brain connection is Russian born pediatrician Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride.
She cured her own son of autism spectrum disorders by restoring his intestinal flora balance with her GAPS (gut and psychology syndrome) diet that then began using it in her UK practice on others successfully. 
What she and a handful of doctors have discovered is that there are neurological connections to the gut. This is why it's common for autistic kids to have extremely painful gastrointestinal inflammations. This why GAPS is real. It impacts the child's emotional, behavioral, and psychological state.
And this explains why some food allergy kids are at least a little whacky or pale and withdrawn or depressed. You know, the type of kid bullies like to pick on. The solution is beyond isolating the allergens; it's necessary to restore the proper balance of beneficial gut bacteria.
Several studies have been conducted to illustrate that those with even serious mental disorders were suffering from food allergies that were not isolated. When a dietary shift was made, they calmed down and improved considerably. 
Jean Wolfson, whose Master of Science degree included zoology and biology, also had to help heal her two daughters who were "diagnosed" with serious mental disorders. The results of her intense research rescued them from the clutches of mad drug dispensing psychiatrists and healed them both, permanently. 
This led her to write and publish a book entitled It's Not Mental and create an informative blog with the same title (http://itsnotmental.blogspot.com/).
Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride also offers information on the effects of food allergies, physiological toxins and probiotic deficiencies (gut dysbiosis) to mental health with her book Gut and Psychology Syndrome. This site represents her work (http://www.gapsdiet.com/).
Jon Rappoport contributed an article to Natural News entitled "Don't let your child see a psychiatrist. Ever." Jon exposes the whole phoney arrangement of psychiatry and Big Pharma to poison children with toxic chemicals that encourage madness, death, suicide, and homicide (http://www.naturalnews.com).
Look into Wolfson's and Campbell-McBride's sites linked in this article. Also look into Orthomolecular psychiatry, which uses effective high dosage supplementation without side effects. Psychiatry continually marginalizes this while playing pharmaceutical roulette with their bogus science of mental disorders (http://orthomolecular.org/).
