Cerebral Palsy


A general term covering a number of neurological conditions that affect a child’s movement and coordination, cerebral palsy affects the brain and nervous system. Caused by damage to the brain, which normally occurs before, during or soon after birth, cerebral palsy is not a progressive condition. This means it will not get worse as your child gets older. However, it can put a great deal of strain on the body, which can cause problems in later life.

The symptoms of cerebral palsy vary greatly from child to child and depend on the type of cerebral palsy your child has. Some children have problems walking, while others are profoundly disabled and require lifelong care.

Children with cerebral palsy often have other related conditions or problems, including:

  • Epilepsy
  • Learning difficulties
  • Visual impairment
  • Incontinence
  • Hearing impairment
  • Difficulties speaking or understanding people speak
  • Curved spine (scoliosis
  • Delayed growth
  • Drooling

Cerebral palsy is not a progressive condition. This means it will not get worse as your child gets older, but it can put a great deal of strain on the body, which can cause problems in later life.

Although cerebral palsy appears to involve the muscles, it is caused by damage to the part of the brain that controls these muscles, called the cerebrum.

This part of the brain is also responsible for other important brain functions, such as communication skills, memory and the ability to learn, which is why some children with cerebral palsy also have learning and communication difficulties.

In the past, experts believed that damage to the brain occurred during birth as a result of the baby being temporarily deprived of oxygen (asphyxia), which can occur during a difficult or complicated birth.

A major project carried out in the 1980s, however, showed that asphyxia was only responsible for an estimated 5 to 10% of cases of cerebral palsy, with most cases occurring as a result of damage to the brain that happened before the child was born.

Any damage that occurs during the first six months of development of a child can have serious and lifelong consequences.

However, a few cases of cerebral palsy are caused by damage to the brain that occurs after birth – normally during the first few months of a baby’s life. Damage can be caused by an infection of the brain, such as meningitis, as the result of a traumatic head injury.

An article on Foxnews.com suggests focusing on calorie-dense, nutritious foods and high quality fats.

Calorie-rich smoothies containing bananas, dates, mangos and avocados can be great for kids, as well as nut butters, coconut milk and leafy greens like kale, spinach and collards.

Avoid foods which may cause constipation, and make pre and pro-biotics a regular part of the diet. Try natural yogurt with fresh fruit in place of high-sugar and processed desserts.

It is important to not add further toxicity to your system so try to adhere to the following:

  • Do not consume any artificial sweeteners, such as Splenda, NutraSweet or Aspartame
  • Do not consume high fructose corn syrup or mono-sodium glutamate.
  • Do not drink any carbonated beverages.
  • Avoid all fast food restaurants.
  • Avoid all canned food.
  • Eliminate conventional dairy products.  The best dairy products are raw, unpasteurised and homogenised dairy from grass fed cows.  If this is unavailable, then buy organic dairy.
  • Avoid conventional beef.  The best beef is organic grass fed beef. The second best is organic meat; this includes beef, veal, lamb, chicken and turkey.


Certain vitamins and minerals may help to reduce cerebral palsy symptoms, including the following:

  • Vitamin D – This vitamin helps prevent osteoporosis, a common complication of cerebral palsy.
  • Vitamin B-6 0 – This is believed to help to reduce involuntary movements. Vitamin B-6 is also useful to treat seizures, another possible complication in people with cerebral palsy.
  • Calcium – An important supplement for people with cerebral palsy because of the increased risk of osteoporosis. Calcium supplements can help to strengthen bones, which is especially important if you have cerebral palsy.
  • Omega-3 fatty acids – Found naturally in cold-water fish, omega-3 fatty acids can also be taken as a supplement. Omega-3 fatty acids are especially important for people with cerebral palsy; the supplement may help to reduce involuntary movement in people with movement disorders, such as cerebral palsy.
  • Take Vitamin D3 50,000-100,000 International Units a day for periods of four weeks at a time.
  • Wholefood supplements are the best way of ensuring your nutritional needs are met. The best we know on the market is Kevin Trudeau’s “KT Daily” product.  You can find more details here.
  • Take an Omega 3 supplement:

Krill oil

Fish oil

Cod liver oil


Prescription and non-prescription medication:

What non-prescription and prescription drugs are you taking?  Your non-prescription and prescription are partially the reason that you have this illness or disease – you need to get off these medications but do so only under the guidance of a licensed health care practitioner.
