  1. ADHD Considerations: 1. Television is associated with increased anxiety, aggression, suicide, obesity and decreased learning and success in school, as well as decreased attention span. Television has a tranquilizing affect that makes people drowsy, numb and passive. http://www.parenting-healthy-children.com/...hild-abuse.html http://www.parenting-healthy-children.com/...-addiction.html http://www.neuropsychiatryreviews.com/may0...xcessiveTV.html 2. Are the 217 chemicals found in unborn babys' blood that are toxic to the brain and nervous system be responsible for ADHD and other brain anomalies? http://www.parenting-healthy-children.com/...rds-health.html 3. Does progesterone work to prevent brain damage in children? http://www.parenting-healthy-children.com/...erone-work.html 4. Vitamins can have genetic effects and vitamin research has found significant improvement in ADHD, autism, mental retardation and severely emotionally disturbed children using specific formulations and programs. http://www.parenting-healthy-children.com/...nsonhealth.html http://ahha.org/articles.asp?Id=53 http://www.vitalitymagazine.com/boost_your...with_b_vitamins 5. Are parents being misled by big pharma research and advertising? http://www.parenting-healthy-children.com/...t-vitamins.html http://www.parenting-healthy-children.com/...-on-health.html 6. No More ADHD Book: http://www.ecampus.com/book/0966554531 7. Benjamin Feingold, M.D, found that about 40-50% of hyperactive children are sensitive to artificial food colors, flavors and preservatives. http://www.parenting-healthy-children.com/...d-behavior.html 8. Since piracetam, a non-toxic supplement, aids brain function in a number of ways, could it help ADHD cases? http://www.piracetam.com/ 9. Dr. Abram Hoffer, MD and colleague of Linus Pauling, says subclinical pellagra exists in children today. The symptoms include hyperactivity, perceptual difficulties, inappropriate social behavior, and, understandably, problems with school. Adding niacin to food eliminated deadly pellagra but not the less serious forms for which more B-3 was needed. It may, also, be responsible for depression in both kids & adults http://www.lightparty.com/Health/HoffersABC.html http://www.parenting-healthy-children.com
  2. Given that children with child learning disabilities are already delayed by a year in one or more academic subjects, parents must see that they are tested "sooner" than possible. In this way treatment can be instituted forthwith and their problems ameliorated. The percentage of Florida students diagnosed with child learning disabilities has increased from .50% in 1971, to 2.40% in 1977, to 3.38% in 1980, to 4.04% in 1986, to 5.16% in 1996 and will be over 6% in 1998-an increase of over 1000% since 1971. Continuing increases of learning disabilities cannot be attributed to better diagnosis after 1985... The probable cause of learning disabilities is exposure of the fetus to environmental chemicals during pregnancy. Two major laboratories found an average of 200 industrial chemicals and pollutants in umbilical cord blood from 10 babies born in August and September of 2004 in U.S. hospitals... Research finds that the brains of children with learning disabilities and attention deficit disorders are affected in the following ways: Glucose is metabolized more slowly. Hence, the energy supply to the brain is less. Decreased blood flow to specific brain areas The brains are smaller Recommendations for children with learning disorders: Seek advice from a nutrition oriented doctor. Do your own research or find someone to do it for you before you consult with your doctor. Remain in regular contact with your child's teacher and communicate your concerns, regarding her behavior and performance in school...
