Excerpts from the interview:
“Volpe is a chiropractor and nutritionist but over the years, solving health problems naturally became his passion. He doesn’t advise his patients on whether to medicate their children, he just looks at their diet and their health history to help. Volpe says some children are very sensitive to certain foods.
Volpe warns, “Children today have a very poor diet — a lot of sugar, a lot of processed foods, a lot of what we would call empty calories.”
He says don’t expect food to reproduce that laser like focus that Adderral, Ritalin or Concerta brings.
Volpe worries the drugs are just a band-aid — they never correct the problem, just the symptoms.”
