The modern American diet is a big part of the cause of current learning difficulties and syndromes. We need and must have fats in our diet for proper neurological, and therefore cognitive, function, yet fats are demonized and avoided. I’d recommend you listen to Jimmy Moore‘s interview of Dr. Ann Childers to see what you can do to help yourself, your children, and those you love.
Jimmy Moore describes the interview as follows: “Ann Childers, MD began her career as an animal behavior researcher and over time she noticed the effects of diet on canine health and behavior. Eventually she decided to become a professional licensed child and adult psychiatrist and a strong advocate for a low-carb approach to improving one’s “mental fitness” as well as physical health. Listen in for some junk food horror stories and what kinds of mental disorders she’s treated with carbohydrate restriction!” Copyright © 2011 The Livin La Vida Low-Carb Show
Here is Dr. Childers’ bio: “Dr. Childers is a child and adult trained psychiatric physician with a passionate interest in regaining our physical and mental health through nutrition and sleep. She has published a number of textbook chapters, among them ‘Nutritional Aspects of Psychiatry’ for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry: The Essentials (Cheng and Myers, 2010). Her office is in Lake Oswego, Oregon where she sees children, adolescents and adults. A member of the Metabolism Society, she welcomes those who desire an integrated approach to psychiatric care, weight control, and/or metabolic management.”
