ADHD (parents forum)Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Sufferers of ADHD are unable to focus their attention on anything, are very easily distracted, and often disruptive. The cause of ADHD is not yet known, though there is a mounting body of evidence that diet can exacerbate the condition.

We tried removing the foods from his diet which had triggered the eczema earlier and that calmed him down significantly.
He's still got a lot of energy, but he's now able to direct it through healthier chanels

Some of those reasons could be vaccines, diet, plain old differences in personality, as well as MISdiagnosis.
I do agree that this "dis-ease" is also overdiagnosed possibly for the benefit of the pharm co.
What is interesting is that alot of teachers, not doctors, are the first to see ADHD in children and suggest to parents to drug them. I think this is so it will make their jobs as a teacher easier.
I do agree that diet plays a big role and symptoms significantly improve when changed as well as the vaccinations. Does this mean that diet or vaccines started the symptoms? Not necessarily, but they definitely don't help when you are wanting a different behavior. It depends on the individual, although these things GREATLY increase the chance, especially when they are compounded.
Many more males are diagnosed than females. I wonder why. In my own thoughts, maybe it is because they are naturally more active than females during different growth rates (which happen to be at the same ages they are diagnosed).
I think another possibile reason is that schools have taken away so much physical activity compared to the past, and children just don't have the opportunity to PLAY and get that energy out like they used to. In some school systems I am familiar with, they actually considered voting to take away "outside" play time to fit in another academic. I think it's ridiculous. How can you expect attention when so many things are not balanced? When their energy is suppressed by "sitting" in a desk ALL DAY, and their bodies are filled with sugar, and vaccine toxins, and...
(I am not saying any or all of these cause the problems, I'm just trying to make a point- we have to look at ALL of the possible reasons/causes of symptoms, and try to work on ALL of them. Of course each thing can make a small or great difference depending on the individual.)
There are so many things play a role in an individual child's behavior.

The amount of damage a given dose of mercury can do to the brain (and also the heart) depends on one's age, sex, and genetically determined ability to excrete mercury. Young children with still developing brains are more susceptible, and males are more vulnerable to a given dose of mercury because testosterone enhances its neurotoxicity. Most important, however, is one's genetically programmed ability to rid the body of mercury. The brain has a house-cleaning protein that removes dangerous waste products, which comes in three varieties: APO-E2, APO-E3, and APO-E4. The APO-E2 protein can carry 2 atoms of mercury out of the brain; APO-3, one; and AOP-E4, none. The genes we acquire from each parent determine which two we have. People with two APO-E4 proteins (and thus no APO-E2 or -E3) have an 80 percent chance of acquiring Alzheimer's disease. And according to one study, autistic children have a huge preponderance of APO-E4 protein in their brains.

Here is another article from Dr. Miller, but I disagree with HIS conclusion.
I advocate NO vaccinations EVER.

What exactly are these toxins? Please describe them, and how much of them there is in any vaccination.
And could you also describe exactly how are they related to ADHD? What is the connection?
I cannot see the connection at all. People seem to believe every fantastic story being passed around the office, and not actually looking for the facts. So can someone please bring some facts?

Mercury is one of the most toxic elements on earth and is still in vaccines,despite what the puppets of pharmaceutical companies say.Mercury has an affinity for the brain.People who cannot detoxify end up with a brain filled with mercury.It manifests itself as ADD/ADHD/Autism/OCD etc.If the mother had silver amalgams in her mouth the mercury would be passed to the fetus.Heavy metals in the environment can also cause ADD.A mother who ate a lot of mercury laden fish could have also passed mercury to the child.All these scenarios are possible ,but the number one cause of ADD/ADHD is vaccines.The viruses in the vaccines are mumps,measles,and rubella.Weakened strains are given to children who are already immunosuppressed due to the mercury.The virus takes host in the body and prevents heavy metals like mercury from being excreted.Oh yeah, the reason why some people are not able to detoxify the mercury to begin with is because of genetics.Viruses compound the problem.Dr Amy Yasko talks a lot about this.She is curing kids left and right.Other toxins in the vaccines are aluminum(heavy metal) and formaldehyde.Mercury disturbs your intestinal flora and makes you succeptible to many infections.These infections are treated with antibiotics which further disturbs your intestinal flora.This leads to major digestive problems.Since their digestive systems are now impaired,the kids cant even properly absorb nutrients from food.People also develop severe allergies(allergies trigger ADD symptoms) to food because of the mercury.This is why all these dietary changes are helping.Kids are making full recoveries by chelating all the mercury and fixing all the damage the mercury did.The things you have to fix are nutritional deficiencies,fungal infections(candida releases neurological toxins),hormonal imbalances(adrenal hormones are necessary for learning and memory).You may also have to chelate other metals that accumulated in addition to the mercury.Some of the best doctors are Rashid Buttar,Amy Yasko, and Defeat Autism Now.If you have ADD/ADHD/OCD etc. then reseach the autism websites.Whatever chemical imbalance you end up with just depends on how badly you have been poisoned.

I found this music created by a Mom for her children after seeing signs of hyperactivity in one of her boys. Prior to being diagnosed, she tried this and it worked so she produced the music on CD (and downloads) for other parents to use. She is a Master Reiki Healer and is of Indian descent with a beautiful voice. These Mantras are very effective in calming ADHD, ADD & Hyperactivity. Part of the strategy is that they start at a fast pace which is able to reach the mind of an active child and then bring the child down at the end of the chant - resulting a long lasting calm. The one that worked best for my child (2 year old) was Track 9 'Ganpaphi Mantra'. There's too many medicated kids out there, there ARE answers other than Ritalin! Check out the CD ('Mantras for my children and yours'), downloads and the music at w w w. mantramom. com

i used to got add, i cured it, well without any medication
i used binaural beats, maybe something for your boy?
here is my story:
I was diagnosed with add when i was 15
i have a whole history of eating disorders
I was depressed and i started to develop anorexia in highschool i went really skinny
then i went to boardingschool the last years and i didn't ate during the week but i binged during the weekends.I was on rilatine
later on i went on concerta, still depressed as hell
at university i started to develop bulemia then i went on wellbutrine to help this disorder as well as to help me concentrate
it kept on going worse, especially when my father died when i was 20 years old,
I couldnt sleep anymore, I had insomnia, I couldnt fall a sleep until like 4 AM, I started with sleeping pills as well
i kept on binge eating and throwing up sometimes 8 times a day
i felt so sick, disgusting even though i wasn't fat, i know that now
then i started to figure out why i had this and alternative ways to treat this
i started using BINAURAL BRAIN FREQUENCIES, special ones to heal add/adhd,
i knew about them because a friend of mine had severe adhd and with medication, he went creepy violent, he cured his adhd with the frequencies. He advised me to try them aswell so i did.
there was i site where i got them from
A WHOLE TURN started in my life!!!
i felt more confident, more alive, less depressed, so much more happy and i could focus and concentrate like never before! i even stopped binge eating and throwing up
i lost my bulemia with another specially designed track for gaining control over cravings, and have a balance in my brain
i went completely off ANY MEDICATION even wellbutrine!! AND STILL HAD GREAT SCHOOL RESULTS
I can sleep like a baby, my insomnia was gone, no more sleeping pills for me
i feel so great now, have my life energy back and just love life without any medication
i'm now also a completely raw veganist,
without cravings for unhealthy food
i just wanted to share this,
it ll help other people as well
