Attention Disorder Conditions
The media has made much of attention disorder conditions in children. They have made autism sound like an epidemic, but actually “only” about 1 in 150 children have this. Just forty years ago ADD, ADHD, and autism were almost unheard of. Children in government (not private) schools are being routinely drugged up on dangerous amphetamine drugs such as Ritalin and Adderall. At least 6% of government school children are being drugged. Boys are three times more affected here. Drugging up children with amphetamines is a great way to turn them into dysfunctional androids, criminals, and psychotics. Note this is only an issue in government, not private, schools. Yet, parents let the doctors poison their own children. That’s how insane our society has gotten. Parents freely allow government bureaucrats to drug their children with dangerous amphetamines. ADD and ADHD are the two most common conditions, and do affect adults as well. There is a strong genetic factor here, as proven by the fact 79% of identical twins will have the same condition, and 39% of fraternal twins.
People with ADD and ADHD routinely have digestive disorders including cramps, diarrhea, bloating, and constipation. They also have inordinate rates of sinus conditions as well. All this proves how diet-related this problem is. Gluten intolerance and celiac disease are more media promoted problems that are very rare- if they exist at all. This is not connected with attention disorder (read the articles Gluten Free Insanity and Wheat Baloney in our library.
Candida yeast overgrowth is common in this. Food allergies are a big issue here, and is due to “leaky gut syndrome” more often than not. Common food allergies include DAIRY, eggs, poultry, citrus fruit, nightshade vegetables, peanuts, chocolate, and sugars of all kinds. This is obviously not some mysterious accident. This is caused by diet and lifestyle. Parents who eat incredibly bad diets, and live horrendous lifestyles are going to give birth to sickly children. For example, one third of children in America will grow up diabetic. Children who have terrible diets and horrendous lifestyles, are guaranteed to be sickly, and suffer inordinately from every known illness.
What specifically causes attention disorder? The fact Americans hog down 160 pounds of various sugars every year so their brains can’t function. The artificial sweeteners like sucralose are even deadlier. The facts are we eat twice the calories we need, twice the protein we need, eight times the fat we need, that we eat a mere 1% whole grains, we’re mineral deficient, we’re nutrient deficient. We should eat 50% whole grains! We’re overfed and undernourished. We get little or no exercise. Children are now routinely overweight and obese. This just did not happen prior to the 1970 era.
You’ll often find thyroid problems- even in children. Just go to www.healthlabs.com and get panel 2 thyroid for $85 with no doctor. Their free T3 and T4 must be midrange, and not merely “in range”. Read the Thyroid Health article. Girls over 13 may well benefit from progesterone cream. Girls can also test their E1, E2, and E3.
How can you cure attention deficit disorders? Easily, simply, naturally, and inexpensively. Take them out of the public (government) brain washing centers you call “schools”. Put them in a private school. Feed them macrobiotic food. Give them their own lunch to take to school. Explain to them why they cannot drink sodas, eat junk food, and such things when they leave the house. Give them the Supplements for Younger People (read the article in our library).
You can add CoQ10, lipoic acid, PS, and glutamine to this for one year. Omega-3 deficiency has been clearly associated with this (Prostaglandins, Leukotrines v 75, 2006). Flax oil will take care of this. If you eat macrobiotic food, they will eat macrobiotic food. No junk food in the house whatsoever. This is a family affair, and the whole family has to eat well and live well. Find a sport they enjoy and encourage them to participate in it. They must get regular exercise. Mineral deficiency is a major issue here. All Your Minerals® will take care of this. Add 250 mg of magnesium for one year. Magnesium deficiency has been shown to be a factor (Magnesium Research v 10, 1997) in 90% of cases. Whole grains are a great source of magnesium.
As always, diet and lifestyle cure disease, not doctors, drugs, and surgery.
