Adhd conditions can only be managed; not cured and although sometimes these children's symptoms subside with age, often they remain into adulthood.

When the day has come and gone, and you're sitting there all alone.
Feeling angry, depressed and rejected, wondering if your life can
ever be corrected. Needing someone to call your very own, someone
who's love and devotion is clearly shown. Someone to sit and talk to,
who will understand your dreams, your wishes, and the things you
would like to plan. Someone to laugh and have fun with. Someone to
help you enjoy life just a little bit. Life does have it's way of dealing
low blows, Leaving you confused, unhappy and wandering which way
to go. When all your efforts to find or recapture happiness have
been at their best, Then only God can do the rest.



" The child with ADHD is usually very metabolically disadvantaged with low vitamins, amino  acids, minerals and a high level of toxic and heavy metals."
They may also have delayed reactions to food and chemical sensitivities as shown on the cytotoxic test, and often immediate reactions to foods and inhalant allergens."
 "many have sever food and chemical sensitivities to cow's milk, gluten-containing grains, legumes and beans- all of which can cause severe malabsorption state and flat  gut villi and thus low vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
Nutritional Terms

FTC Comes Down Hard on ADHD Supplements

Nutritional Supplements Checklist for ADHD
Magnesium- Magnesium is needed for bone, protein, and fatty acid formation, making new cells, activating B vitamins, relaxing muscles, clotting blood, and forming ATPthe energy the body runs on. The secretion and action of insulin also require magnesium.
B Vitamins-The vitamin B-complex refers to all of the known essential water-soluble vitamins except for vitamin C. These include thiamine (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), niacin (vitamin B3), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), pyridoxine (vitamin B6), biotin,folic acid and the cobalamins (vitamin B12).
Evening Primrose Oil-Evening primrose oil (EPO), black currant seed oil, and borage oil contain gamma linolenic acid (GLA), a fatty acid that the body converts to a hormone-like substance called prostaglandin E1 (PGE1). PGE1 has anti-inflammatory properties and may also act as a blood thinner and blood vessel dilator.
Vitamin B6-Vitamin B6 is the master vitamin for processing amino acidsthe building blocks of all proteins and some hormones. Vitamin B6 helps to make and take apart many amino acids and is also needed to make the hormones, serotonin, melatonin, and dopamine.

The Importance of Minerals
According to a U.S. Senate study (Document No. 264),- -- 99% of Americans are deficient in minerals and trace elements.

Naturopathic doctors estimate that more than 150 diseases are linked to mineral deficiencies. Minerals are one of the most basic foundations of health. Like vitamins, minerals function as coenzymes, enabling the body to perform many functions. Minerals belong in two groups- macrominerals and microminerals. Macrominerals, also known as essential minerals, are needed by the body in larger amounts. Microminerals, also known as trace minerals, are needed by the body in smaller amounts, but are nevertheless important for good health. The human body must maintain proper chemical balance. The level of each mineral in the body has an effect on every other mineral. This means if one is out of balance, all minerals can be affected. If imbalances are not corrected this can lead to a chain reaction that causes disease.

Many people are deficient in minerals and don't even know it. Minerals have now become depleted from our soils through unsustainable farming practices that include fields being over-planted and saturated with synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. Consequently, Americans are not getting the vitamins and minerals they need. In order to stay healthy, prevent premature aging, ward off cancer and heart disease, our diet must be supplemented with minerals and trace elements. This is compounded by the fact that most doctors do not have tests to detect deficiencies in many of the more obscure trace minerals, so most of us are quite deficient and don't realize it.

Fortunately, Växa has developed a test that detects levels of macro and trace minerals called the BioTrac Analysis.

ADDers Are More Likely to Have Fatty Acid Defeciencies

OMEGA 3's Fatty Acids

Purdue University Study Finds Link Between Fatty Acid Deficiency &
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

OMEGA 3 and OMEGA 6 Fatty Acids

Omega 3 Oils and Children's Brain

There is a long-held belief that fish oil is good for growing brains and it now seems that there may be some truth in that. Certainly omega-3 EFAs are important for nerve function.

But more specific research has shown that kids low in Omega-3 essential fatty acids are significantly more likely to be hyperactive, have learning disorders, and to display behavioural problems. Omega-3 deficiencies have also been tied to dyslexia, violence, depression, and memory problems. Some people have found that omega-3 supplements have greatly helped children with dyslexia, and also for Attention Deficit Disorder and similar conditions.

ADD/HD, Cod Liver Oil and Omega's
Benefits of the Omega 3's found in Fish Oil and Cod liver oil

***Helps fight and prevent heart disease, cancer, depression,   Alheimer's, arthritis, diabetes, ulcers, ***hyperactivity***and many other diseases

***Increases your energy level and ***ability to concentrate***
Provides greater resistance to common illnesses such as flu and cold
Helps pregnant women avoid premature births, low birth weight and other complications
Cod Liver Oil is a good source of EPA and DHA, which provide support for cardiovascular and immune systems.
While a helpful form of Omega-3 can be found in flaxseed, walnuts and a few other foods, the most beneficial form of Omega-3 - containing two fatty acids, DHA and EPA, that are essential to fighting and preventing both physical and mental disease - can only be found in fish.

OMEGA 3's are critical to good health, however the body can not produce them so it is necessary to obtain them from food.

  • epinephrine (adrenaline)
Induces short-term adrenaline hormones, may regulate mood, may improve memory and alertness, may treat chronic fatigue, appetite suppression.
Hydroxyphenyl amino acid that is used to build neurotransmitters and hormones.
These are some of the main neurotransmitters in the brain. Attention deficit disorder can be caused by not enough dopamine or norepinephrine. Low levels of tyrosine, therefore, can result in ADD.
