ADHD means Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and is becoming very popular these days. There are also another name for this Disorder that people sometimes use called ADD. ADD means Attention Deficit Disorder and it is pretty much the same thing but without the Hyperactivity. So, just to clarify this, the difference between ADHD and ADD is just in that one word or term called Hyperactivity. There are three different types of ADHD.
+ First one is called ADHD – Predominantly Inattentive Type, some people refer to it as ADD because its symptoms are mainly related to Inattention issues and without any major Hyperactivity behaviors. People with this problem may have symptoms like not paying attention, not finishing the tasks given to them, not following directions, easily distractful, easily forgetful, careless, disorganized, always losing things, slow responding, sluggish, and not processing fast enough the information given to them.
+ Second one is called ADHD – Predominantly Hyperactive Impulsive Type. Individuals with this type of ADHD don’t have major Attention problems, but instead they are mainly Hyperactive and Impulsive. These kind of people may have symptoms like feeling and looking restless, overactive, impulsive, interrupting others, talking loudly, can’t sit still, excessive talking, can’t wait for their turn, and they are hasty.
+ The Last one is called ADHD – Combined Type which means it is both Predominantly Inattentive Type and Predominantly Hyperactive Impulsive Type. People with this type of ADHD have symptoms from the first two kinds of ADHD issues.
People or Organizations who are obsess with money will try to sell you some expensive drugs to try to treat your ADHD problem, but people and organizations that care about you and the natural and healthy way of living will try to sell you or tell you about the safe way of treating the ADHD or ADD. It has been explored by some professionals and some families that the Toxic, yes TOXIC ADHD drugs with antidepressants and antipsychotic drugs that doctors give to children and adults are very harmful with huge health problems later on. According to huge number of patients who dealt with ADHD or ADD, it really looks like people can treat and cure ADHD naturally, but only if they continue to stay on the right and healthy nutrition and physical activity. Some people were able to see major improvements in their kids just after twenty-four hours or clean and healthy nutrition. Children that have ADHD can improve their grades and behavior dramatically and the adults can continue learning what they wanted to learn and at the same time improve their behavior too. If you or someone in your family suffers from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or non Hyperactivity Disorder then you really need to do a very deep research on the internet about the natural ways that you can use to cure or treat the ADHD. It is understandable that ADHD Parenting can be difficult and that is exactly why parents who discovered ADHD in child really need to try to find the safe treatment of ADHD. Lazy or uncaring parents really need to stop being lazy or uncaring, because their choice can harm their ADHD children for the rest of their life. Yes it is understandable that teaching ADHD children is hard or you don’t have the time to do any research about it, but to take advice or drugs from some person who sat in school for four years and then got a white cloth to put on is totally unwise and risky. If you need support on ADHD teaching you can find it online easily or even in your local library. If people who have kids with ADHD would take more time and more patience with their kids, then in school their teachers would have a lot less pressure from ADHD students. Also, just to make sure that we are clear on this, ADHD is not a disease, it is just a temporary disorder that could be resolved with some simple tasks like physical touch, physical exercise, physical fun playing, healthy nutrition, and even classical music. Some of the important rules or ingredients in ADHD Natural Treatment are:
– One tablespoon of Fish Oil per day to improve concentration, memory, and attention.
– Green Tea in the morning for healthy energy and to focus better.
– Chamomile Tea in the evening to calm the nervous system down.
– One table spoon of Organic Apple Cider Vinegar per Eight ounces of Clean water to reduce the anxiety and depression symptoms.
– Replace your Cooking vegetable oil, soy oil, corn oil, canola oil, and animal oils with Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil.
– Replace soda pop, juices and other sweet drinks with clean water or fruity teas without sugar.
– Stay away from white sugar as far as possible, White Sugar is a Tricky, White, and Sweet Way to Cancer and then Death, replace it with raw honey, or even nothing for a while.
There is more advice and helpful ADHD alternative treatment available on the internet, you just need to find time or make time for it. Believe me it is not worth paying more money for some ADHD New Treatment that doctors want to practice on you or your child, because people who did that regret it with tears in their eyes… Want more proof? Check this statement out from a true witness, a mother with a sick child, her statement might make you cry and I am sorry about that, make sure you pull your face away from the keyboard because your tears might drop in there :) anyway, here is her statement from EarthClinic.com:
05/13/2008: Terese from Cedar Rapids, Iowa writes: “ADHD: Daycare wanted to drug my son when he was 3. Want to know the ironic thing? Hillary Clinton referenced his daycare in her book, “It Takes a Village.” I fought tooth and nail. I finally gave in and put him on ritalin, dexadrene (sp), concerta, strattera. These are all of the drugs I tried on him at different times. Needless to say my son almost died in the ER of an overdose. It’s funny because it was supposed to be a “low dosage”. You trust your doctor and do what they say because it is good for you right? WRONG! I didn’t know any better.
I took my son’s life and well being into my own hands. First I had to acknowledge the fact that I needed to have a spine and stop giving him empty threats. I let him get away with anything because I would get to the point where I was just so tired from working all day- I couldn’t parent. I needed a break. I wouldn’t follow through with things, etc. When I did he was just his bouncing self. I finally set rules, followed through, and there were consequences. Do not join CHADD. They are funded by drug companies. They will think you are a freak for not putting your kid on meds. I got absolutely no support there. I got pamphlets on why I should give my kid a pill. I do not believe they are there to support you. They are there to push drugs. Follow the money if you don’t believe me.
First thing I did was watched Dr. Fred Baughman’s video on ADHD. You can purchase that at www.adhdfraud.org – I bawled when I watched it. Completely amazing. It is worth every penny. You might be able to find it free online if you search well enough. You have to watch this video before you do anything else.
#2. I read every page and watched all of the YouTube videos of Steve Plog, founder of www.resultsproject.net – READ EVERY PAGE.
#3. I got my son a lab test from Steve Plog’s site for delayed food allergies. Delayed food allergies are different from your classic food allergies. My son was allergic to everything I was feeding him. Wheat, soy, dairy, eggs, beef, all citrus, peanuts. We had to do research on a wheat free gluten free soy free dairy free diet. No, he was not a celiac but we had to say that so schools would adhere to his dietary needs, but we started packing lunches anyway. You have to change your lifestyle and we did. That is what prompted me to go vegan but that is another story. He still eats chicken and loves bacon. The best book I found for making him goodies like pizza, breads, and cakes was by Cindy Moseley “Great Foods Without Worry”. It was my saving grace.
#4. I read everything on the drugging of children on www.spice-of-life.com – Click on “Articles” and read.
#5. I absolutely cut out pop, all juice “drinks”, anything with Splenda, Sweet N Low, NutraSweet – ANYTHING WITH ASPARTAME. Wanna know why? Because it is cancer! A sweet slow death. Don’t believe me? Go read www.dorway.com and see for yourself. I get all of the drink things from www.steviasmart.com – He absolutely LOVES the chocolate drink. And what do we do without dairy? We drink rice milk and almond milk. Stop cooking with vegetable, soy, corn, canola, and animal fat oils. Cook with extra virgin coconut oil instead. Read up online about the benefits of extra virgin coconut oil. My favorite is http://www.wildernessfamilynaturals.com/virgin_coconut_oil.htm
#6. Find a doctor who does not believe in drugging children (I know that seems hard but they are out there). Look for alternative doctors. Call around and ask around.
#7. You wean your kid off drugs. It is your responsibility. I am not a doctor, but I have lived almost 9 years of hell.
It is against the law for a teacher to reccommend that you drug your kid. If any teacher tells you to get meds. Ask her if she is a doctor. Tell her it is illegal to practice medicine without a license and that she could be fined and arrested for that.
I have slowly introduced certain foods back into my son’s diet. The only things that makes him go through the roof are soy and beef.
I put my son on 2 – 250 mg pills of L- Tryptophan (NOW brand) and give him 2 time released melatonin (Source Naturals) pills every morning. He gets another dose at school before lunch. I pulled him out of regular schools and got him into a private school. He is a normal kid, just like everyone else. He also takes a daily vitamin at night. I have a flourishing 9 year old boy now in the 3rd grade. He also gets flax seed oil from www.omeganutrition.com
Don’t ever let anyone convince you to drug your child. You are the parent and you know what is best. Set rules and boundaries. Kids that are “over active” need structure, routine, rules, consistency, and boundaries. Even kids that aren’t “over active” do. Let your kids be kids but be their parent. If you have any questions feel free to post under me and I will check back to answer them.
P.S. My son in a public school was sent to the office every day. His scores were passing on his report cards. This year in a private school, and last year… he took his Iowa Test of Basic Skills tests. Everything except LISTENING SKILLS were at almost a 5th grade level. So, for anyone to tell me that I am crazy…. you can stick it where the sun don’t shine for all I care. I have living proof that what I did with my own son works. Different strokes for different folks. I do not believe in ADHD. I believe in drug companies making a profit off kids being kids. Follow the money.”
