Attention Deficit Disorder

 

This disorder is another health problem affecting so many of our children, this is another one of those disorders the medical profession has no understanding what is causing this in our children.

This is a neurobiological based disability which affects 3-5% of our children, when you add the chemicals from our foods with our own natural body chemicals they just might not be mixing so well?

  2. Hi Jeff,

    I couldn’t agree with you more about avoiding medications if at all possible.

    I had an experience with a child who showed some symptoms of hyperactivity, and the school wanted to recommend medication. Instead, the parents undertook to treat these symptoms naturally by changing the child’s diet and combining it with exercise.

    It worked beautifully. I am glad you shared this information.

    1. Thank You Ms. Judy

      I am happy the parents took the natural approach first before medication, medication should be a last resort especially for children who would be taking this medication way too long and who knows what it might cause in the future.

  3. Jeff, thanks for this comprehensive article. I’ve seen some pretty bizarre stories regarding children with ADHD, with more severe cases being considered as ‘possession’. A lack of understanding of the condition is just as dangerous as the condition itself it would appear. Of note, your trigger foods section intrigued me. I was not aware that gluten, soy, and MSG could really set one’s child off! Looking in my cupboard horrifies me…so I will be sure to start looking into altering my family’s diet for non-processed food pretty soon.

    1. Thank You Mr Thomas,

      I appreciate you reading and commenting on my my article today, more and more physicians are recommending to cut back on processed foods. In moderation these foods don’t affect our lives as severely, but when they become the majority of your diet these chemicals mixed with your body chemistry often causes health problems.

      Jeff
