Our young children are being put on seriously dangerous drugs to control their behaviour.
Surely there has to be a better way?
How many times have you heard or said ‘My Child Is Feral?’
More and more children are being diagnosed with ADHD, ADD, ODD and many other initials
that imply there is something seriously wrong with the child. And the “solution” offered is
amphetamines (aka speed). Now that’s a scary thing.
The symptoms of the various disorders tend to run along the lines of lack of concentration,
anger, aggression, uncontrollable behaviour, poor social skills, self harm, property damage,
allergies, skin and digestive problems etc etc…
The good news is that there are better ways of treating these symptoms and they aren’t harmful
at all. If you have read any of my other articles, you will notice that I am always going on about
diet. In the case of these disorders, diet plays a huge part, sometimes poor diet and lack of
knowledge is the only reason a child is exhibiting symptoms of ADHD or any of the other labels.
I tell you this from the perspective of 18 years of experience and having worked successfully with
families who have ‘problem’ children. The cure involves a complete overhaul of the lifestyle of the
whole family and often involves Life Coaching for the whole family and some families are unwilling to do this.
If you are committed to helping your ‘problem’ child then I highly recommend you eliminate dairy,
soft drinks, white bread, sugar, processed foods (anything in a tin, jar or packet is processed food)
from your family diet. You will all benefit and within a week of doing this (guaranteed, provided
you do it completely) you will think you have a different child in the house.
In addition to but not instead of, the dietary changes, kinesiology and Bach Flower therapy can be
helpful and, as I mentioned earlier, Life Coaching for the whole family from a qualified practitioner who is experienced
in the field of behavioural problems. Using fish oil as a supplement is a useful adjunct to the above
treatment. Many companies now make fish oil that doesn’t taste fishy so that children can easily
swallow it. It can be bought in liquid form or as a capsule.
If I were to choose the one thing that will have the most profound effect, diet is that one thing.
Give it a try and enjoy your child again!
