Be a Strong Advocate for Your Child and Teach Your Child How To Become An Advocate for Themselves

Posted by on May 14, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Every ADD/ADHD child needs to understand what their areas of weakness are, so they know why they may have certain difficulties rather than begin to see themselves as unintelligent. This will also make them more accepting of learning strategies that can minimize any struggles they may encounter because of these weaknesses. learning effective strategies early prevents them from falling far behind their classmates and more dedicated to giving continued effort (which is a key to success in all areas of life). This also makes finding effective solutions easier, and encourages them to ask for help when they need it, and assists them to advocate for the help they need as well. Children who learn self-advocacy skills early, are better able to be explicit, confident, and proactive in getting the resources and accommodations they need as they go through life. They also minimize any weaknesses they may have and develop their strengths to become more adaptable and successful in work and personal relationships. When we help them focus on strengths first we create greater opportunities for success and increase their self-esteem.

It Is Important To Learn About ADD/ADHD and How It Affects Your Child and Family

Posted by on May 14, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Because ADD/ADHD is a complex condition it is imperative that you learn as much as you can about it to help yourself and your child learn to make the most of their strengths. ADD/ADHD can present very differently from child to child (especially between girls and boys).  It can present changing challenges as a child grows, as symptoms evolve through different developmental stages (elementary school, middle school, high school, college, and into adulthood for most affecting work, marriage, and parenting). To have the most success you must educate yourself, your child, and your family about ADD/ADHD. It is important that your child become an active participant in his or her treatment and they must learn to become their own advocate as they grow. Most importantly stay focused on the positive and on creating solutions.

ADHD has Neurological and Biological Components Caused By a Number of Risk Factors, Including an Inherited Genetic Predisposition

Posted by on May 14, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

There is a strong genetic component to ADD/ADHD. This means it tends to run in families. Research shows that persons with ADD/ADHD have differences in there brain development and how they process and a deficiency in certain brain chemicals (particularly, the neurotransmitters dopamine and norepinephrine) these neurotransmitters determine how effectively our brain inhibits behavior, sustains attention, and controls our moods.

ADHD is not caused by poor parenting or a lack of discipline at home (although having excellent parenting skill can help ADD/ADHD learn to better self-regulate their behaviors). It is not caused by eating too much sugar or watching too much television (although high levels of sugar can negatively affect ADD/ADHD children—check out www.naturaladdtreatments.com). Understanding the neurobiological factors that contribute to ADD/ADHD can help you deal with it’s symptoms. At the same time it can eliminate any feelings of guilt or shame parents may experience raising these more challenging yet brilliant children.

Did you know that ADD/ADHD people are prone to Chronic Reversed Polarity?

Posted by on Apr 5, 2014 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Chronic Reversed Polarity 

 

The human body is a self-contained, self-generating electrical system. Our mental processes, the immune system, and the heart are  all part of a vast system that runs electrically. Whenever electricity 

is in operation, magnetic fields are created and these fields have polarity. This means they have a north and south pole. If you put a magnet under stress, it will reverse its polarity; in essence, the north and south poles change positions. 

 

Since the human body is electrical and has a subtle magnetic field, certain conditions such as stress will reverse the body’s polarity. This condition can be temporary, yet it is often is often long-lasting and chronic. Keith R. Smith discovered that chronic polarity reversal appears to be a major factor in the cause of chronic 

fatigue syndrome, depression, anxiety, fibromyalgia, auto immune diseases, cancer, ADHD, and many other conditions. 

 

Some potential signs of Chronic Reversed Polarity are: 

 

➤ Chronic stress or an Inability to Relax, Depression or Anxiety

 

➤ Headaches or Migraines 

 

➤ Difficulty concentrating, Feeling Brain Fog. or Poor Short Term Memory

 

➤ Insomnia, difficulty sleeping 

 

➤ Clumsiness or Being Accident Prone 

 

➤ Chronic Fatigue 

 

➤ Pain 

 

➤ Chronic health problems including Constipation, digestive problems or Irritable Bowel 

 

Stress plays an important role in ADD and the ability to learn. One form of stress that has greatly increased in recent years is exposure to Electromagnetic Frequency waves (EMF) from cell 

phones, Wifi and other electrical devises. Younger people are more vulnerable to EMF waves due to skull-thickness, which is maturing and growing. Evidence now suggests that fetal or neo-natal exposures to radiofrequency radiation may be associated with an increased incidence of autism. One way to protect yourself and your child against the stresses due to EMF exposure is wearing the GIALife Pendant.

3. Did you know that iodine deficiencies (that cause thyroid problems) is one of the major causes of ADD/ADHD symptoms?

Posted by on Mar 21, 2014 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Research is beginning to confirm that the growing incidence of ADHD may be directly related to an iodine deficiency. Further, this research has shown that correcting iodine deficiencies in those with levels too low would translate into a decrease in ADHD symptoms and challenges. The clinical work of Dr. David Brownstein shows the frequency of iodine deficiencies to be equal in children and adults and that it occurs at 96%.
