Nutrition Therapy for ADHD & ADD

Can ADHD & ADD Go Away?

ADD and ADHD are also misunderstood. To begin to really understand these conditions, you have to know what the word epigenetic means, which in short is how your genes can be influenced by environmental factors that impact your ability to think, focus, and concentrate effectively.

Environmental factors include things like the 4×4 burger, animal style fries, and Neapolitan shake you had at In & Out for lunch. It’s not simply about the genes and not simply about the environment. Both are factors that contribute to biochemical imbalances in the brain, which in turn can affect your functional capacity.

Individuals diagnosed with AD(H)D, or what my personal physician and mentor, Dr. Albert Mensah calls Focus and Attention Syndromes (FAS), can have any of these underlying causes: high copper, undermethylation, overmethylation, yeast toxicity, and/or Pyrrole disorder, all of which Eat for Life provides resources and solutions to overcome (I know these are big words but don’t let them scare you). Feel free to read my journal entry here.

It’s not simply a one-dimensional pill that will set a recourse, but a collection of nutrients to balance the brain (check out my Epigenetic booklet as part of my cookbooks bundle to dig a little deeper). Healing AD(H)D naturally is possible. For example, if copper is high, this can short circuit the brain’s processes. Keep in mind copper is a conductor of energy. A good analogy I Iike to use is the energizer bunny that keeps going and going and going. This over-excitability is what creates inattention and/or hyperactive behaviors in individuals with copper overload.
