Adding Magnesium for Detox in ADHD Children

Our children’s bodies are so complex that it is unlikely that any one vitamin or mineral will eliminate ADHD.  A building block approach typically works best, creating a strong foundation, which includes ensuring our children get the correct vitamins and minerals in the right dosage. Magnesium is one of these minerals that is key to healing for anyone with ADHD symptoms. Our bodies use magnesium in combination with B6 and other minerals to detox from some of the 80,000 chemicals we might be exposed to that are on the market today. Magnesium is natural supplements for adhd and one of the most important minerals in our body, serving hundreds of different functions in our body. In a European study that...

Help – My Child Just Received an ADHD Diagnosis!

My head was spinning. I think I knew deep down that my child had ADHD, but I didn’t want to acknowledge it, because then it would make it real…and I knew nothing about ADHD or how to move forward!

Few pediatricians have knowledge of food sensitivities, discipline techniques, school situations, and other factors that can substantially alter or even eliminate ADHD behavior. Instead, they do the best they can to address the symptoms, by doing the only thing they are trained to do. They prescribe medications, such as Focalin, Adderall or Vyvanse, that...

When To Start Natural ADHD Interventions

I get lots of questions from parents about the right timing to start taking steps to eliminate their children’s ADHD symptoms. The answer is, the sooner the better, as long as we are talking about natural remedies and not medications. I have a couple of 8 week programs published in my book, “Healing Our ADHD Children”, that can be done simultaneously or back to back which address ADHD symptoms naturally. I have found that the sooner these are undertaken, the better the outcome. Any child in elementary school or younger is a great candidate for eliminating ADHD symptoms naturally. Children this age want to please their parents and love positive rewards. They are not as attached to specific foods and...

Is Gluten Causing ADHD Symptoms?

So why would any Mom go through the pain and agony of putting their ADHD child on a food sensitivity diet for 4 – 6 weeks? After all, we have been told by the “medical establishment” that ADHD can’t be cured and we should put our children on medication to mask their symptoms and get on with life. I am sure you have wondered why ADHD happened to your child. While I am not saying that certain foods cause ADHD, it is a fact that our food supply has changed dramatically in the past 50 years. It is also a fact that diagnosis of ADHD, ODD, Asperger’s and Autism have skyrocketed in the past 50 years. This is no coincidence!...

Healing ADHD Naturally

When I began to feel Spirit nudging me towards writing a book about healing ADHD symptoms in children, I shrugged it off. Although my children had made substantial progress and were becoming easier to parent day by day, by no means were they “healed”. I felt like I needed to wait for the perfect, “happy ending” before I would be qualified to write a book. I waited and waited, but my children refused to be perfect! I wrote the book anyway. This weekend I realized how far my family and my children have really come. I agreed to house a 14 year old friend of my daughters, who was forced to evacuate due to hurricane Irma. Although no one told...

BPA in Plastics

I continue to read more and more about BPA and it's effects on our health. Seems that companies are starting to take note and remove BPA from some of our plastic food containers. Then they add a blurb on the container that says "BPA Free".  Unfortunately, many of these same companies have substituted a substance called BSA for BPA.  Initial studies of BSA point out that this plastic additive is worse for us than BPA!  Buyer beware!  Stay away from plastics of all kinds as much as possible! And don't EVER put plastic in the microwave! For more information, my new book “Healing Our ADHD Children” is available in paperback at www.LindaArtis.com.
