ADD, ADHD, Diet ad Chinese Medicine
Education, knowledge not remedies, fancy titles, etc. cures disease. The quickest cure is knowledge. Basic info to bring you up tp speed.
1. The body is not one structure and function but many that work together, for better (health) or worse (disease). You cannot cure one part (mind) and expect to be successful without curing all the parts (diet, digestion, elimination, respiration, etc.).
2. All disease progresses in stages. Stage 1 is always cause. Thought precedes action. Stage 1 for most skin diseases is poor diet. Poor diet tends to weaken (2) digestion, (3) elimination, (4) blood, (5) circulation, (6) organ disease, etc.
Most ADD ” diseases” are stage 4 or higher. They generally start with poor diet.
Stage 1. Poor diet:
Long-term high protein, fat and starch and low veegtables, fruit,
Long-term cold, damp, low pritein, low fat and high carbohydrate.
Stage 2: abdominal bloating, gas, burping, heartburn, nausea
Stage 3: loose stools, constipation,
Stage 4: fatigue, coldness, pain, pallor, inflammation, etc.
Stage 5: ADD, skin diseases, arthritis, circulatory disorders
ADD, ADHD did not happen overnight, but over time, stages which you ignored, put up with, treated, etc. until you developed a new set of symptoms you can accept, at which point, you ran to the doctor again for more drugs and now are reading blogs in desperation for an answer. Here’s your answer.
3. Cure the disease in its first stage. The first stage exists throughout the disease. It is just coated, cloaked by different layers of symptoms, stages. The first, beginning stages are the brains, head of the disease, not te latter stages, which are just arms and legs. You cannot cure a stage 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, etc. symptom, disease without first curing stage 1. There is nothing wrong with treating latter stages as long as you take the beginning stages into account, so that you can minimize any potential side effects, health risk. .
The cure procedes in the same path, from beginning (stage 1) to end not the other way around, which is why many doctors, physicians, mainstream and alternative fail to cure simple diseases.
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficite Hyperactive Disorder are characterized by the psychiatric profession as neurological disorders that tend to attack children producing the following symptoms: (ADD) cannot stay focused, cannot pay attention, easily distracted and (ADHD) same symptoms as ADD, but also hyperactivity and impulsiveness. These symptoms are generally observed in school.
Dr. Phil, on a recent show, outlined the cause and treatment plan, which included seeing a specialist, such as himself (licensed psychiatrist and or psychologist). The treatment plan was 1. Medication, in general: Ritalin (amphetamine, stimulant drug), Adderal (amphetamine), etc., 2. Counseling, 3. Therapy and 4. Training, including simple things (parents be clear and consistent, teach children to stick to a schedule, organize, etc.
Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) would diagnose the child, symptoms as poor diet and lack of discipline. There no diagnosis of ADD and ADHD in TCM and Ayurvedic medicine, both 5,000+ years old. Neither would define the symptoms as a neurological disorder. Nor would they recommend stimulant drugs, amphetamines to a child, unless it was a serious life threatening emergency, as the mususe of amphetamines can create neurological disorders and or drug addiction.
The Chinese physician would recommend the following treatment plan.
1. Better diet:
Most inattention, hyperactivity disorders are caused by poor diet: too much sugar, starch: sodas, desserts, snacks, candies, cookies, cereals, etc.) and or too much or too little protein and fat.
Protein and fat build and fuel. Too much overbuilds, over fuels creating hyperactivity, impulsiveness, etc. Too little under builds, under fuels reducing attention, ability to stay focused, becoming easily distracted, etc.
The correct, daily diet, meal plan would be as follows: 1/3 protein and fat, 1/3 grain, 1/3 vegetables (3- 5, cooked, raw), spices, fruit (1), soup and or tea, two to three times per day, preferably breakfaat and lunch. For more info: read “Energetics of Food” on this blog.
2. Parents: more discipline, time spent with children, to make up for the lack of discipline, attention in today’s schools, overcrowded classrooms. Parents eat the same healthy diet.
That is it. No drugs, therapy, counseling, special diagnoses, etc, just common sense, good diet and mature, disciplined parenting. You do not need a specialist. You just need to eat better and spend more time in the kitchen and with your children.
The following case history is one example.
One of my customers came to see me about her eleven year-old daughter. Her school wanted to put her daughter (extremely thin) on Ritalin in addition to the drugs (4 months of Adderall and Dexedrine) she was already taking: She did not know what to do. I told her to bring her daughter in and let me question her. I had never counseled a child before but I did not think it would be any different from an adult.
She brought her daughter in. I sat and questioned her. There was nothing wrong with her except for poor diet (under built) and lack of attention, at home and in the schoolroom: overcrowded classrooms.
I told her mother to start feeding her more protein, building foods (red meat, hamburgers, eggs, chicken, etc.) especially for breakfast. She was already eating grains and vegetables. I also advised fish liver oil (capsules) in addition to greater personal attention.
Months later she wrote me a letter thanking me saying that her daughter was now getting all A’s and one B (math) without the use of Ritalin or any other drug.
Does your doctor, physician give you this kind of information and results.every time you see him, her? If not, then why aren’t you buying my book, Hot and Cold Health and Disease (317 pages), on sale .49: Amazon and others http://www.amazon.com/Hot-Cold-Health-Disease-Richard-Heft/dp/0974791725 ?
