Learning disabilities make life more difficult. It is important to do all that we can for our kids so that they are able to read and write and be successful in school and life. Learning and gaining knowledge are essential for living healthy, productive lives in our society.
From a holistic perspective, we want to address the cause of the problems. Damage to the brain can occur for different reasons. The wonderful news is that the brain, like the rest of the body, can heal itself, if provided with what it needs in order to do so. So before spending a lot of money and time on methods to get past learning disabilities, it is important to provide the brain with the environment it needs in order to heal and function to its highest capacity.
Toxic elements harm the body and the brain. Unfortunately, our society does not acknowledge the severity of the toxicity of most of the chemicals we are exposed to through our food, water and the air we breathe. All chemicals have a toxic effect on our bodies. The more chemicals involved, the more effects. And the more sensitive the person is to the chemicals, the more effects their bodies will experience. So first and foremost, eliminate as many chemicals from the diet and home environment that you can. This is simply accomplished by eating organic foods and use natural cleaners and body products.
Once you have removed the toxins, work on healing. There are different methods that you can try. Some powerful ones that have worked for my family include Brain Gym and Brain Balance. Handwriting Without Tears is also a fantastic way to learn to write when dygraphia is present. However, I would not recommend any of these without simultaneously addressing diet and nutrition. Everything goes hand in hand. In order to optimize brain functioning, we have to provide the nutrition that the brain and body need.
If your child is struggling with learning, do not hesitate to simultaneously employ healing diets, detoxification protocols, and proven methods that increase brain functioning. Don't limit yourself or them to one approach at a time. Bring it all together in a holistic way so that the effects can be amplified and more efficiently accomplished.
