Did you know that the brand of ice cream, cookie, and potato chip you select could have a direct effect on the behavior, health, and ability to learn for you or your children? Numerous studies show that certain synthetic food additives can have serious learning, behavior, and/or health effects for sensitive people.
The Feingold® Program (also known as the Feingold Diet) is a test to determine if certain foods or food additives are triggering particular symptoms. The Feingold diet is basically the way people used to eat before "hyperactivity" and "ADHD" became household words, and before asthma and chronic ear infections became so very common.
The symptoms commonly helped by the Feingold Program can be divided into symptoms of BEHAVIOR, LEARNING, & HEALTH. As depicted by the three interlocking circles, not everyone has all the symptoms - some may have only one symptom, while others may have many. Everyone experiences some of these symptoms once in a while, but it is the intensity and frequency of the behavior that can indicate when it is not a normal condition.
In treating children who suffer from a behavior, learning or health problems, the Feingold Association discovered when eliminating synthetic food additives from a child’s diet, the behavior or problems can subside. Synthetic food additives include artificial colorings and flavorings, aspartame, BHT, BHA & TBHQ.
