ADD and ADHD diagnoses are on the rise. The American Psychiatric Association states in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV-TR) that 3%-7% of school-aged children have ADHD.

Teachers report lack of focus in classrooms. Parents notice hyperactivity, mood swings, depression, and many other emotional behaviors.

What is happening that is causing such issues in our kids? The answer may be a simple ingredient present in just about every meal...gluten!

Depression, migraines, ADHD, autism, obsessive compulsive disorder, schizophrenia, balance problems, epilepsy, inability to concentrate, autoimmune thyroid disease, and dermatitis, are amongst the many non-digestive disorders that have now been linked to gluten intolerance.

Join Dr. Ritamarie and learn how removing gluten from your child’s diet could in fact save their life.
