ADD/ADHD

Attention-Deficit Disorder and Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is marked by inattention, hyperactivity, impulsiveness or a combination of these and is generally more likely to appear in groups and may be indicated by mood swings. Although the American Psychiatric Association has determined guide lines for diagnosis and treatment, there is substantial research that indicates ADD/ADHD may be the result of several factors: food allergies, chemicals in foods and the environment, free radical damage, and full spectrum light deprivation.

In study after study, ADD/ADHD patients exhibited a broad range of "allergies" from food colorings, additives, short spectrum lighting (fluorescent lighting and winter "blues") and lowered zinc and iron levels in blood serum. These individuals also exhibited development of unusual thirst, eczema and ear and chest infections among others.

Individuals respond to a broad range of non-pharmaceutical treatments which include but are not limited to dietary changes (removal of dairy products, food additives, colorings and chemicals including aspartame from the diet and local environment). Cranial Electro-Stimulation (very low level electrical stimulation of the brain) has also proved effective and the results show a cumulative effect of reducing hyperactivity while increasing IQ levels.

The data from hundreds of studies and our own experiential observations strongly suggest that environmental matters are considerable factors involved in the exacerbation of the illness. We highly recommend that anyone suffering from ADD/ADHD should look first to their immediate surroundings and consider removing toxic chemicals and radiation sources from their homes and diets.

Individuals may also consider replacing their "normal" lighting with full spectrum light bulbs and fluorescent tubes available by mail or through health food stores. Parents of school age children might also consider "lobbying" their schools regarding replacement of lighting in classrooms or forming a "support group" to fund these changes.

Because of the blood serum level reductions of iron and zinc appearing in 96% of ADD/ADHD patients, individuals should also consider a good multi-vitamin and anti-oxidant formula. For those aged 12 and older, our Daily Health® Formula is an excellent choice also contains no preservatives or artificial colorings.
