Taking Charge of Your Health

Hello, I’m Gina Van Luven with Healthy Healing TV. Today, we’re gonna be talking about natural remedies for ADHD. Having a son who once had ADHD, I know how challenging it can be for everyone involved. Unfortunately, medication just masks the symptoms and can actually cause more problems. In fact, prescription medication can cause the need for additional medication which is not so much fun either. Natural remedies, however, help to bring the body back into balance again. They provide what the body needs so that it can function optimally. Today, I’m going to share with you six natural remedies for ADHD. Number 1 is to avoid synthetic food colorings and preservatives. The European Union actually recognizes that these synthetic ingredients can exacerbate symptoms of ADHD and they require special labeling for products containing them. Number 2… do a heavy metal detoxification. Now, if you’re not sure what detoxification is, I encourage you to look it up online.
It’s good for everyone, but especially those experiencing ADHD symptoms. Heavy metals like lead and mercury in particular, can really wreak havoc on the brain and cause symptoms of ADHD along with other behavioral issues. Using natural key leaders like cilantro, chlorella, chlorophyll, zeolite, bentonite… there’s a lot of them… can really help to naturally
reduce heavy metals and the toxic load on the brain. Number 3… have an IgG, IgA, IgE food sensitivity tests done. And if you’re not sure what that is, go ahead and look that up. IgG, IgA, IgE
and you can have a blood test done to determine any type of food sensitivities. For example, wheat, in particular, is very
well known to cause ADHD symptoms. Now if you’re removing any specific foods, it’s really important that you do that for a long period of time – several months, or you’re not going to experience the results that you’re looking for. If you just do it here and there, it’s not
going to be the same and it needs to be COMPLETELY eliminated very consistently from day to day over several months. Number 4… supplementing with the following nutrients can provide your body with what it needs to function optimally. Minerals like calcium, magnesium, and zinc. Magnesium in particular is very helpful at helping overcome ADHD symptoms. I actually prefer magnesium oil and rubbing it on the feet. EFAs which are essential fatty acids like
Omega 3, specifically DHA and EPA. B-Vitamins specifically B6. Vitamin D… most people
are deficient in vitamin D. And just taking the RDA or recommended daily allowance isn’t enough to increase your levels. So 5 to 10,000 international units which are IUs a day is appropriate to bring your levels back to normal. Amino acids like choline.
L-glutamine, phenylalanine, tyrosine, and taurine. L-glutamine in particular is really considered brain fuel and is great for people that are suffering from ADHD. Number 5… implement relaxation techniques in the morning and before bed. Number 6… avoid electronics before going to bed. This actually revs up the brain and it increases your cortisol which actually
disturbs your sleep. By eliminating the harmful things and providing your body what it needs, ADHD symptoms can simply disappear. Now if you have any questions or you would like to leave a comment, please do so below, and I can’t wait to see you in

  2. Good summary,
    Should definitely have a more in-depth followup video. Poor diets consisting of refined carbs (which is difficult to escape as it's marketed everywhere starting with the food guide) can lead to depression and Adhd symptoms (even worse for ppl that are genetically predisposed to it due to polymorphism in the dna).

    Dr Rhonda Patrick was talking about how these foods can compromise gut health which in turn cross the blood brain barrier before finally wrecking havoc on your neurotransmitters which regulate mood, learning and ultimately aging.

    In regards to your amino acid recommendation, have you ever heard of Neuro Optimizer? It's basically a pill that combines all those named amino acids paired with along with l-carnitine and some other nootropics.

    It's recommended for people with neurodegeneritive diseases, but I i imagine it'd work well for adhd.
