Treating adult ADHD and children’s ADHD from a natural standpoint is virtually the same. ADHD is a condition that is often related to digestive issues and lack of some specific nutrients. The good news is that ADHD can be treated naturally with some simple dietary and nutritional changes.

Whether it is adult ADHD, or children’s ADHD, I always recommend starting to look at the diet first and foremost. The diet can often determine the severity of the symptoms of ADHD in both children and adults. The following is a list of foods and additives that should be avoided at all costs by people suffering with ADHD:

1. Sugar excess: Yes, we all need a little sugar in our diets, but excess sugar, especially refined white sugar is a culprit for causing changes in the mental-emotional sphere of health. Too much sugar can cause spikes in insulin that decrease the proper functioning of the brain. High insulin levels followed by a crash in blood sugar is also related to the hyperactivity component of ADHD. Also, sugar intake is closely related to yeast overgrowth, or candida. Candida is a very common problem in patients that I have treated with ADHD. The yeast overgrowth and candida organisms give off toxins that affect the brain’s ability to think clearly and cohesively. The best natural treatment for candida is high potency probiotics that are made for the human digestive tract and contain HMF. VitaTree Probiotics are high potency, live friendly flora and contain the important effective strain of friendly flora called HMF.

2. Food dyes and coloring: Artificial food coloring is another causative agent in the manifestation of symptoms of ADHD. Food dyes are synthetic chemicals that negatively alter the normal brain function of children and adults with ADHD. Avoid colored candies, juices, drinks, and chips that contain food dyes.

3. MSG or monosodium glutamate: This food flavour enhancer is toxic and affects both adults and children with ADHD. MSG is found in chips, soups, and a number of packaged foods and should be avoided completely by everyone.

Another thing to consider in both children and adults with ADHD is the very important brain chemical DHA. DHA is a naturally occurring essential fatty acid or omega 3 fat that is found in cold water fish. Most of us do not consume enough fish, and DHA. I don’t even recommend that people eat fish anymore because our waterways and hence the fish have become very toxic with PCB’s, dioxins and heavy metals such as mercury. DHA can be supplemented in high doses in high quality fish oil supplements and this is the best way to get preformed DHA. The best fish oil is VitaFish Oil from VitaTree Nutritionals, high in DHA, non-toxic and great for children and adults because it tastes like orange candy! No fishy taste or aftertaste.

IBS- A Probiotic Problem

Irritable Bowel Syndrome is a common complaint among men and women. It is often associated with a lack of enough good probiotics, or friendly live microorganisms in the intestines. We all have over 400 species of bacteria in the intestines, some are bad, most should be good. Unfortunately, people who suffer with IBS, often lack enough of the good guys to ward off the bad intestinal bacteria. It is essential to supplement with Probiotics daily to revert the balance in favour of the friendly flora, or probiotics. This not only helps digestion, but also helps the immune system to function optimally.

Probiotics come in a number of different strains and sources. Be certain the probiotics you are taking are labelled for Humans! Many are not! For more info visit www.tryvitatree.com.
