The Connection Between Sensory Processing Disorder and Nutrient Deficiency
Kids and adults alike process the world using the five senses. We smell dinner cooking in the oven, hear our kids laughing as they play, see the smiles on our kids’ faces, feel their tiny arms hug us, and taste the delicious taste of coffee in the (very early) morning. But for some people, senses can be overwhelming. For example, the sound of a lawn mower can be mildly annoying to you but make your kid tense up. Or the light touch of a specific fabric can cause your child to chafe, making her miserable every time she wears a particular shirt. These can be signs of sensory processing disorder (SPD).
