Did you eat good healthy meals at home cooked by your mom?
One McDonald's hamburger can kick me into a bi-polar episode. Do you think its partly because of additives being put in our foods?
Yes - there truly are REAL ADD/ADHD cases. My daughter was one - way back in 1975 - - before it was the latest catch all for active children.
It needs to be understood that ADD/ADHD is an umbrella for many disruptive behaviors. My daughter did not have a behavior issue. She did have a
focus issue and required physical contact (squeezing of hands) to focus when being spoken to.
She apparently had a "brain signal" dysfunction. She had trouble getting information into her brain - - but once there she retained it. It is
found many are related to allergies. Especially wheat and dairy.
I had her on a strict organic diet - - no sugar - no coloring - no additives - etc. Also put her on a swim team - which she swam on until her junior
year in high school.
I had a remarkable pediatrician and grade school that worked with her.
Her son was extremely active and we nicknamed him Tigger. But he was not ADD - - and I knew it - - because I had dealt with the real thing.
His school tried to force us to put him on meds. You KNOW they were told where to stick it.
YES -- it has become a huge epidemic of control - - not diagnosis.
