ADD, ADHD Or Not
To ADD/ADHD or not to ADD/ADHD, that is one question, a big one, however. Our son was a happy, healthy baby who was very active and had difficulty digesting any type of food. So, being young and ignorant we took him to the doctor, who gave him a peppermint stick that made him worse and a prescription. The medication/drug made him very calm a “Good” little infant. Our little child was stoned, so not wishing to create an addict, we threw the prescription/drug in the garbage. The good doctor had diagnosed him with hyperactivity, the ADD/ADHD of the day.
So, being in graduate school at the time, and very familiar with the great library, I set out to gain more knowledge. After three full days of research, I found the answer to our son’s challenge in books dated to the 1950’s. Our son had the Colic and he had been eating prepared baby food in the jar for about two months. We threw the jars of baby food in the garbage, purchased a good blender, some fresh vegetables, some good meat and started to feed our child real food. We eliminated most sugar, all food coloring, preservatives and other chemicals (please note that food 40 years ago was much less contaminated with chemicals, no GMO) then, real food was much easier to find. All food related problems, Colic and Hyperactivity went away and he was started on a life of health self-empowerment (no prescription drugs/chemicals). THE BEGINNING!! Yes, life, health and most other things are about beliefs and choices. Bob Brown
