Nutrition for ADHD!

 
 

What Side-Effects of ADHD Drugs Are?

Increase blood pressure, heart rate, respirations and temperature, appetite suppression, weight loss, growth retardation, facial tics, muscle twitching, central nervous system stimulation, euphoria, nervousness, irritability and agitation, psychotic, episodes,  violent behavior, paranoid delusions, hallucination, bizarre behaviors, heart arrhythmias, palpitation,  drug tolerance, psychological dependence and some times even death.

1. Toxicities

A. Foods and Water The trans fatty acids and lipid peroxides in junk food which are toxic and by-products of overheated fats. Processed foods,
B. Environment:
Household chemicals, pesticides, industry chemicals.
In recent history, mankind has managed to drastically change the chemistry of the
environment in which we live. For example, in 2000 alone,

       More than 4,000,000,000 pounds of chemicals were released into the ground, threatening both a portion of the soil in which we grow our food and the natural underground water tables than supply some of our drinking water.

  1. Over 260.000,000 pounds of chemicals were also discharged into surface waters such as lakes and rivers.
  2. Nearly 2,000,000,000 pounds of chemical emissions were pumped into the air we breathe.
  3. A grand total of over 6,000,000,000 pounds of chemical pollutants were released into the environment we eat, breathe and live in –all in just one year.
  4. There are 82,000 chemicals than can enter your body weekly.

In today's world it is estimated that over 95% of people experience a chemical
imbalance within their bodies due to these environmental toxicities, which cause an excess of hydrogen ions

 C. Genetic

Sensitivity to dietary and environmental agents appears to be linked to one’s heredity. The development of allergies can be passed down through successive generations of a person’s bloodline.

2. Supplements

It is important to clear up allergies to these supplements before take them

Essential fatty acids
1. DHA ---------- Docahexaenoic acid or DHA is an essential fatty acid, lowest viscosity in nature, about 80% of the nerve ending is made of DHA. Studies have found that over 82% of the ADD children had deficiencies of DHA.
2.  Omega-3------ essential fatty acid, 60% of the brain is made of omega-3, from fish oil, vegetable oil.
3.ALA----------Alpha linolenic acid, an essential acid, from vegetable oil, foods like canola, kiwi, walnuts, flax and the like. Our bodies take ALA and with it to prduce DHA and EPA( eicosapentaenoic acid).

Minerals
1. Magnesium--------- a critical mineral, about five hundred enzymes in the body need magnesium in their functions. It’s been shown in children with ADHD are magnesium deficient, If supplemented with magnesium, they will slow  down.
2. Zinc----------another mineral required in over two hundred enzymes, required for immune function, for making fatty acids, for the brain. Many children have marginal or significant zinc deficiencies.
3. Iron---------- very important, we need iron to make red blood cells. All the activity to make energy is also coming from that iron-rich enzyme. It is estimated 75% of ADHD children have marginal iron deficiencies.

Vitamins
 Vitamins are essential to life, they are compounds required for biochemical reactions, which cannot be synthesized in higher animals but must be obtained in diet. Vitamins are generally classified in to two categories. Water soluble ( B vitamin, folate, biotin, pantothenate) are stored very little and have to be supplied frequently.
Fat soluble vitamins ( vitamin A,D,E, K) can be stored in tissue and thus pose a risk for toxicity when taken in excess.
