ADHD and Oversensitivity in the Sense of Taste
Tension Deficit disorder – understanding a Natural treatment
Children who are very picky eaters may suffer from
hypersensitivity in the palate, tongue, lips, throat, or elsewhere in the
mouth. The sensitivity causes the child to have difficulty with the flavor
and/or texture of food (too oily, too bitter, too rough, too smooth, etc.). To
avoid the problem, these children may eat the same kind of food for a long
time. When the child tires of the same type of food, he will be willing to try
something else and, again, eat just that until he can’t stand it anymore.
When there is more than one type of hypersensitivity for
example, hypersensitivity of both taste and smell the child’s difficulty may be
much more severe.
When a Child have taste oversensitivity, in most of the
cases he will have other sensitivity too. That can lead to Tension Deficit
disorder or ADHD symptoms.
