The Connection Between Brain Health and Gut Health
At the Brain Balance Achievement Center of Edwardsville, the program focuses on eliminating barriers to a child’s performance and emotional wellbeing. Studies show that there is a strong connection between the stomach and brain, called the gut-brain connection. Because of this, conditions such as leaky gut syndrome can lead to negative behaviors - especially in children with Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), ADHD, learning struggles, and Autism Spectrum Disorder. Leaky gut, also called intestinal permeability, occurs when there are large cracks or holes in the gut lining. These holes and cracks allow partially digested food and toxins to irritate the underlying tissue. Specific foods, such as dairy and gluten, are particularly hard for children with ODD and Autism to digest, and the insufficient digestion of these foods creates inflammation and impacts the brain and body. When an individual experiences food reactions associated with leaky gut, they may exhibit effects on their hyperactivity, inattention, mood, and anxiety levels.
How can the Brain Balance Program address leaky gut syndrome in children? Through a proper nutritional program that focuses on eliminating the foods linked to poor gut health, our one-of-a-kind nutritional plan supports our comprehensive approach to balancing the brain effectively and efficiently. Gluten, refined sugar, and dairy have been known to have a negative effect on the brain and can lead to food sensitivities, negative behavior, physical symptoms, and learning challenges. Our program will help to slowly remove these foods from your child’s diet, which can help to improve brain health, gut health, and behavior. Our healthy eating plan is part of our integrated approach that combines nutrition, at-home exercises, sensory-motor activities, and academic skills training.
