ADHD is all too common today, with 11% of children being diagnosed and 4.4% of adults. This means that 10.5 million adults in the US alone suffer from ADHD symptoms. ADHD affects children, teens, and adults different but generally has variants on two different symptom types. Inattention can present itself in a number of ways, including being easily distracted, trouble paying attention, difficulty finishing tasks, messiness and trouble with details. Hyperactivity or impulsiveness can present with trouble staying still, talking too much, and a general need to be constantly moving around. People with ADHD generally show a mix of these two categories, causing social and other difficulties.
At Nutritionally Yours, we have helped many with ADHD ease their symptoms. We love hearing from parents that their home life has gotten easier because their child is more focused and better behaved. The phone calls from school go from teacher’s needing for the parent to consider medication, to the teacher saying whatever the parent has been doing, don‘t stop! ADHD symptoms can worsen when there are mineral deficiencies or a toxic heavy metal buildup in the body. A lack of calming minerals like calcium, magnesium, and lithium can cause hyperactivity and make the ADHD symptoms more apparent, whereas heavy metals can build up in the brain and lead to brain fog – or racing thoughts. The best way to look at minerals and metals is to try a hair sample analysis. Test results come with a detailed protocol to help get you or your child feeling better and staying focused and calm.
