How a Focused ADHD Food Menu Changed My Son’s Life
year my son started his freshman year of college. I can’t even begin to tell you how incredibly proud I was to see this day.
You see, my son was over-the-top Attention Deficit Disorder. Not just “kind of” ADD, WAY over-the-top ADD. Suffice it to say that “Huh?” was the most used word in his vocabulary.
This young man struggled with school from the first day he stepped into the kindergarten classroom. He is highly intelligent, yet struggled to get Cs, at best. No matter how hard he tried, he continued to fail. Eventually he admitted defeat and simply quit trying. Had nothing changed, I am certain he would have failed high school.
Recently someone asked the secret of his amazing turn-around. My two-fold answer is surprisingly simple; a daily ADHD natural remedy drink and a focused ADHD food menu
filled with the
best brain foods
The daily ADHD natural remedy drink is, hands down, my #1 secret weapon against ADHD.
Avoid (as best as we can!) foods with artificial colors, dyes and preservatives.
Avoid (as best we can!) processed and refined carbohydrates.
If you liken the human brain to a car, an ADHD food menu makes sense. A car needs gasoline, oil, transmission fluid, brake fluid and other special materials to run well. If the car runs low on any of these materials, it sputters, misfires, becomes sluggish and eventually stops running altogether.
Like a car, the brain also needs a broad range of special materials to run well. The brain needs fatty acids, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and other essential chemicals. And like a car, the brain becomes sluggish and misfires when it runs low on the materials it needs.
Looking back, I am now quite thankful for being blessed with a child that forced me to sharpen my nutrition skills. Our entire family has benefited from a more focused diet and this experience solidly reminded me that following the masses and listening blindly to the “experts” can be detrimental to our health and well being.
I am somewhat of a quote junkie. I will leave you with a few of my favorites quotes from Henry David Thoreau;
“Every man is the builder of a temple called his body.”
“Men are born to succeed, not fail.”
"Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it's time to pause and reflect.”
I wish you great success as you now start building a strong “temple” – your body.
