Important Information from a Parent of a Child with ADHD

Important Information from a parent of a child with ADHD

“My son was diagnosed with ADHD by a doctor. . . We don’t have him on meds; just changing the foods he eats. Number one was dyes, most specifically Red 40.
We found out that apparently, we were feeding him Red 40 for breakfast with his chewable Vitamin C! (GRRR!) We’ve seen a difference since taking that one dye out! With that, the other dyes will follow, along with sugars. (HFCS is a rarity). It’s a lot of work, but worth it!

We found dye in so much! But many companies are making alternates of their food without the dyes….GoGurt now has a GoGurt Simple (he doesn’t like it anyway), and there’s a brand of breakfast/snack bars that competes with Nutrigrain…but DYE FREE! (and preservative free).

I have also noticed a difference in my older son, my 10 year old (my SPD/ADHD boy is eight years) suffers from occasional depression and we’ve noticed a big difference in removing the Red 40 from our house!” ~ Christina Armstrong

This was posted on a comment in a thread about ADHD last night. Wanted to share with everyone — because it’s SO important to know what just ONE little FAKE-FOOD ingredient can do! — And there are SO many others and the majority of people are eating them the majority of the time causing countless dis-eases. — Please, please educate yourself and at the very least follow my #1 Eating-for-Health Guideline: If it’s not food, don’t eat it! — and take these fake-foods out of your diet.

It’s so easy to make the transition to natural-brand processed foods that don’t contain these harmful ingredients — and of course, even better if you can go for the whole, fresh, natural foods MOST of the time.”

Thank you for sharing, Christina!

    I believe I can help you some. There are 3 thnigs the body needs: air, water, and nutrients. Think of it this way you can go minutes without air, days without water, and weeks without food. So this is the order in which you need to focus on thnigs to start getting more focus, energy, and health.Start out by breathing correctly. If your stomach does not push out when you breathe but sucks in, then you are breathing incorrectly. Most of the alveoli that are in the lower part of the lungs (they transfer oxygen to the blood). Light breathing does not fill this space. You need to breath deep, and imagine filling your lungs from the bottom up (just like you were filling a pitcher with water). After doing a couple of deep breaths like this you may actually feel a little light headed. This is normal as the body adjusts to now having oxygen.75% of Americans and 90% of the world are chronically dehydrated. Drink approx 3 liters of water a day. If you are thirsty then you are already dehydrated. Drink PLENTY of water. It is vital to the health of your body. Dehydration is one of the major causes of fatigue. Drink drink drink.Eat right. Do not mix carbs and meats, it can take up to 8+ hours to digest if you eat them together. If you eat meat with veggies it takes about 3-4 hours to digest, if you have carbs with veggies roughly 3 hours to digest, meat and carbs 8 hours. That is why you have the lasting full feeling when you eat meat and carbs the problem is that digestion takes more energy to do than anything else your body does (besides sex). So you are over working your body when you do not eat right. Stay away from milk products to as they coat your stomach and intestines and halt the nutrients from being absorbed.I think if you breathe right, and drink plenty of water, it will help you concentrate and focus on any task you wish.Hope this helps you some.
