Before children are drugged with pharmaceuticals to treat mood or behavior dysfunctions, schools should encourage parents to seek medical care that evaluates body-function systems (digestive, neurological, endocrine, etc.) to determine if body system dysfunction and nutritional deficiencies could be responsible for child's poor or psychotic behavior. Mental illnesses could be associated with; drug side effects, food allergies, bacterial infections (Lyme Disease, PANDAS, etc.), environmental toxins (lead, mercury, EMF, chemicals), etc.
Disruptive behavior triggered by a food allergy to chocolate.
This is a video of a 9 year old little boy being tested for a chocolate allergy.
When he arrived, he was in a good mood with nothing adverse symptoms to report, pleasant and communicative.
Within minutes of being exposed to the chocolate allergen, he becomes uncooperative, belligerent, unable to concentrate, feels bad, unable to do a simple puzzle.
After 10 minutes, he is given a dose that makes his symptoms go away, he can sit still, is able to concentrate and perform tasks.

PANDAS - Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal Infections - creates inflammation in the brain that results in psychotic behavior.
Lyme Rage: "Several years ago, I admitted a patient with Lyme disease (LD) to a psychiatric unit. He was paranoid and assaulted five police officers in an episode of rage." Robert C. Bransfield, M.D.
Schizophrenia: "Orthomolecular physicians report a 75-85% success rate in treating schizophrenia, with both the extent and the likelihood of improvement in stark contrast to long-range outcome with mainstream methods. Their nutrient-based treatments include vitamin approaches for histapenia, histadelia, pyroluria, allergies, sugar issues, metal metabolism dysfunction, toxicity, neurotransmitter imbalances, and confounding medical illness."
