We have successfully been using the protocol for some time but recently we noticed a sudden decrease in my child’s focus and attention. Why is this happening?

There are a number of issues that can trigger a worsening of focus and attention. Some are obvious such as a concussion or an emotionally stressful event. The child will heal from these spontaneously. Other causes may go undetected by parents simply because the child is not able to communicate that they may be experiencing pain or discomfort. The physical stress from problems such as dental pain, sinus or ear infections, or severe seasonal allergies lead to a drop in brain blood pressure and worsen focus similar to ADD or ADHD. A visit to the dentist of pediatrician will often lead to resolution of the pain or infection and the focus problems will resolve.
