ADHD is thought to affect between 3- 5% of children. It has also been estimated that ADHD is 3 or 4 times more common in boys than in girls. Generally, the ADHD child is unable to concentrate, is hyperactive to the point of being disruptive, and has poor school performance compared with intelligence.
In recent years, there has been an alarming increase in the number of cases of ADHD. ADHD, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is strongly linked to diet, chemicals and food additives in processed food, especially refined sugar and carbohydrates and corn syrup. Food allergies, heavy metal toxicity and caffeine found in sodas are all aggravating. Essential fatty acid (EFA) deficiency has been found in many cases.
Conventional treatment involves giving children suffering from ADHD pharmacological drugs such as stimulants. This is worrisome, as these drugs can cause psychoses, including manic-like and schizophrenic-like disorders. Congress has called for an investigation of the effects of prescribing certain stimulants to children, and certain pharmaceutical companies producing these stimulants have been the subject of class action lawsuits in recent years, as more parents are realizing that the drugs are actually making their children sick.
ADHD can be treated naturally without the use of pharmaceuticals that cause more problems than they purport to solve.
