A Natural Cure for Attention Deficit Disorder!


a plate of seafood

Here is further proof of the powerful effectiveness of the daily seafood dietary routine. As usual though, the focus among the biomedical experts is still upon one or two single agents. And while the omega 3 fatty acids undoubtedly play a vital role, this article also shows that the ignorance of the crucially vital role of the 72+ natural trace elements in these conditions, and their lack in our daily nutrition, is as pervasive and widespread in the biomedical community as ever.

It is very important to mention here that seafood is far better than fresh water fish, for two reasons. Most inland waters are often deficient in one or the other trace element, and almost all inland waters are now far more heavily contaminated with agricultural poisons and industrial pollutants than the open seas. This is a major health hazard. Here is why.

These pollutants usually end up in the muck on the bottom of inland waters, where they are taken up by algae. The plankton and mollusks which feed on these algae are eaten by small fry and fish, which in turn are eaten by larger fish, and so forth, and so forth. At each stage in the 'food chain' the pollutants become more and more concentrated in the larger animals, until the pollutants can reach a 300-fold concentration in the fish at the top of the food chain - the fish which we are interested in. So, and unless you know for certain that the fresh water fish comes from pristine waters, it is not a good idea - and particularly so for small children.

Also worth mentioning here is that the fatty fish - such as herring and salmon - are rich sources of omega 3 fatty acids, and that the fatty acids are now recognized as being absolutely essential to normal brain development.

So, and however many shortcomings may be apparent in this article, it is nevertheless great good news, and you can now go ahead and resolve, as this article indicates, any attention deficit problems, as well as dyslexia and dyspraxia problems, with one or two daily servings - and the more the better - of seafood.





The original synopsis:

Fish Could Be Alternative to Ritalin

Dr. Basant Puri, a consultant and senior lecturer at Hammersmith Hospital in Ireland has been using sophisticated imaging techniques to study the role of fatty acids in brain function. He says he has unearthed a wealth of evidence about how supplementation with specific fatty acids can not only help those with ADD/ADHD (attention deficit/ hyperactivity disorder), but also dyslexia and dyspraxia. Puri said the findings showed that it may be prudent to try a safe nutritional solution in the first instance before using psycho stimulants such an Ritalin. Fatty acids could also be taken by those already on Ritalin, he added. Fatty acids are important for the brain growth of all children and particularly so for those with learning conditions, he said.

He recommends that the best results have come from supplementation with a combination of marine and botanical oils rich in a specific fatty acid called Eicosapentaenoic Acid or EPA.
