Bullying is a Significant Health Factor

Bullying can cause long-term health factors, such as depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, and suicidal ideation. Overweight children and those with food allergies are high risk to become victims. Not infrequently food allergies are a cause of obesity, one that is sometimes difficult to detect. An Elisa blood test followed by elimination and challenge can pin point the problem. We find that desensitization by tapping on acupuncture points (no needles) or by shots every two months can be very effective treatments for food allergies. See Mount Sinai’s Elliot and Roslyn Food Allergy Institute, reported in Pediatrics, Dec. 24, 2012, p. 1180.
