Healing Attention Deficit Disorder Naturally

By: Rhonda Hoffman

In the US more than 5 million children are treated every year with brain disabling narcotics for this mental disorder. Ritalin is the drug most often used but the problem is that it can stunt grwoth, brain atrophy, decrease muscle control, loss of welf regard and/or depression. Dr Fred Baughman, a leading critic and expert of this drug states that rht FDA reported 2,993 adverse reactions to Ritalin in 1990 alone. Of these, 160 were deaths and 567 had to be hospitalized. It also can cause hypertension and rapid heartbeat. Then if the drug is taken from the child they often feel lost or depressed. So the prescription is often worse than the problem!

A growing amount of experts beleive that ADHD and ADD was "made up" by the mental health communtiy and that these symptoms are really creative minds, gifted inventors, scientists and artists of the future therefore many gifted children are being drugged and? and detroyed.
The symptoms of these so called illnesses should be treated as a nutrional issue.

Food allergies often trigger hyperactiveness. Eliminate red dye foods and drinks completely. The other most common triggers are milk, eggs, peanuts, wheat, chocolate, oranges and sugar.NEVER used substitute sugar! Unless it is stevia or Xlylitol, these are the only safe ones.PROTEIN is good!!
Also environmental toxins can be a factor such as, pesticides and cleaning products.
Another cause could be heavy metal poisoning from mercury or lead. These metal can be introduced into the body through vaccinations and other pollutants. Mercury or silver fillings in the teeth for example.
Look at your childs pupils, if they are enlarged then this signals an excess of sympathetic nervous system? activity so you need calming herbs and vitamins/minerals. STRESS J is a good stress supplement.? Lavendar Oil is also very good for them to smell or rub on the wrists and bottom of feet.
Children that have deficient vitamin Bs have behavioral problems such as mood swings,? temper tantrums, depression, anger, fear, withdrawal and inability to concentrate.
So B COMPLEX is extrememly important to supplement with.
If the pupils are small and contracted then there is an excess of parasymphatetic nervous system activity so stimulants will have a calming effect.

MAGNESIUM is another nutrient that is almost always deficient in children with behavioral problems. It is a nerve tonic and? muscle relaxant. Necessary for brain function and it is used up fast during stress. Important to every cell in the body!
