ADD/ADHD – A Natural Approach to the Problem By Dan Cardellichio, DC, MS

WE HAVE A SERIOUS PROBLEM!!!!!

ADD/ADHD – is one of the most commonly diagnosed disorders of childhood. There is about 10% of the kids between 4-17 years of age that have been diagnosed in the United States. These numbers are startling. For these children the dysfunction is, in part, biochemical. The individual with ADD/ADHD is distracted, forgetful, inattentive, distracted, hyperactive, and disorganized.

WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCES FOR THOSE WITH ADD/ADHD?

There can be a diminished quality of life for those with ADD/ADHD and their families, increased economic costs, and increased risk for long-term academic underachievement.

FACTORS INFLUECNING THE RISK FOR ADD/ADHD

We must look at stress, infections, allergens, gut dysfunction, heavy metal toxic overload – mercury and lead and aluminum, oxidative stress, mitochondrial dysfunction, and nutritional insufficiencies. The Western Diet can play a role as it is high in red and processed meats and refined carbohydrates that affect the gut flora and can lead to a leaky gut. Milk protein, gluten, food dyes, food coloring, preservatives, and sugar play a role. The aforementioned factors lead to inflammation that may result in ADD/ADHD.

NOW THE GOOD NEWS – THERE IS HELP!!!!!

 

LAB TESTING

  • Food sensitivity testing can detect diet induced inflammation.
  • Vitamin and mineral panels can detect deficiencies.
  • Wheat Zoomer testing can detect a leaky gut or intestinal permeability as those with ADD/ADHD may experience an unhealthy gut.

WHAT CAN WE DO?

  1. Eat a diet high in fresh, unrefined, unprocessed and organic whole foods.
  2. Eat fruits and vegetables, fish, whole grains, and legumes.
  3. The vitamin and mineral panel could detect deficiencies in zinc, iron, and b-vitamins.
  4. Eat foods rich in omega 3 fatty acids.
  5. Sat away from foods that create inflammation from the food sensitivity testing.
  6. Eat foods such as kefir and probiotics for leaky gut.
