The eyes are the windows to the soul. How we look at people and how we look at the world affects us mentally, physically and even spiritually. Children, as well as adults may have fear of closing their eyes or avoiding eye contact with others.
When children avoid eye contact it may also be a sign of some sort of autism or emotional problem. The medical field has few answers to this as most medications sedate the children, along with other side effects. Natural solutions help these children or people to relax and not be so shy.
Nutritional factors may include a magnesium deficiency. Use a liquid or powder magnesium. Increase dosage until the person has too loose a stool, and then back off.
