Try Changing Diet for ADHD

Jan 17, 2012 - 2 comments

Instead of Drugs and behavioral therapy for ADHD try changing diet .instead.It does not take a rocket scientist to .figure out that many symptoms.associated with ADHD attention deficit hyperactivity disorder,the often over diagnosed condition tacked onto young people , can be treated by simply altering or supplementing ones diet .A new study published by the journal 'Pediatrics' helps confirm  noting that when drugs and behavioral therapies are effective, ridding the body of toxic additives, for instance, and consuming more whole organic foods is the best route to take.....There is still much debate over what ADHD actually is and whether or not it is a 'valid' conditon at all.,at least in the way most define a health condition.Some say that ADHD is a true disease attributable to family history and genetics ,others point to chemicals and toxins,artificial additives and  dyes and sweetners as triggers of the brain.abnormalities that spur inattentiveness and uncontrollable behavior.There are many parents that swear by dietary changes as their primary mode of intervention.Since dietary induced inflammation and neurotoxicity  is considered by many to be the primary cause of ADHD symptoms, eliminating these toxic triggers from the diet and replacing them with healthy alternatives rich in vitamins,minerals, phytonutrients and amino acids is a great way for many people to help cure and reverse ADHD  sources for this article    http://www.news.yahoo.com/healthy-may-help-adhd-kids-us-study-081559093.html

yep!  It's true..change that diet.  My daughter hasn't taken medication in several years...but still has tics from taking Vyvanse!  Be very careful w/ those meds ppl.  She is a very healthy eater..rarely eats candy, doesn't drink sodas..she has a few issues related to ADHD still.  She is a bit disorganized and some days I have to repeat myself..but I'll take this anyday over her taking those drugs.

Thanks Robin I see every day the way these powerful drugs are pushed .and,in my opinion the way there are so many named 'disorders' for what in many children ,not all,are normal growing and naughty behaviors..I wish parents would really get into supplementation and food first before allowing an expert to guide them to mind altering drugs like Adderal and Vyvanse with aggression and other really shocking behaviors.
