Real cause of ADHD, ADD, Autism and Dyslexia!

I started writing this article because of an article about ADHD in the Volkskrant. Read the article here. The medication that is given now appears to cause many health problems.

ADHD medication is not good, that was already known and this article confirms it once again. But what then? It does work to calm our kids down and can therefore help them concentrate better. To know what to do about it, you need to know what the cause is. And the cause, as I will describe it, is not supported by regular care and perhaps not even by many of my colleagues.

What many people don't know is that the medication used for ADHD puts pressure on the adrenal glands. The adrenal glands will release adrenaline and that what gives more focus and concentration, but in the meantime other health problems arise that are also not very pleasant.

The real problem lies in a heavy metal load and this is not only the case with ADHD, but also with ADD, Autism and Dyslexia. These children are super intelligent and we will all learn a lot from them now and in the future. These are the kids who will make change. We therefore have to help them with these issues, because all the stimuli do not reveal their intelligence!

All the conditions mentioned are caused (mainly) by mercury, plus aluminum, that settles in the midline of the brain, which separates the left hemisphere of the brain from the right. When toxic heavy metals enter this midline channel - which must be open and unobstructed - they block communication between the hemispheres of the brain. This challenges the child's brain to develop alternative ways for that exchange to occur.

However, mercury is a neurotoxin that slides down the nose of doctors and therapists. Medical communities are experiencing a massive wake-up call about apparent mercury pollution. Mercury is a major contributor to ADHD and autism in children in the 21st century. (Mercury is also responsible for most seizure disorders). Until mercury is addressed, the conditions will continue to affect millions of new children each year.

The midline starts to close around the age of 18 and it then becomes more difficult to get mercury out, for example. So work to be done and quickly!

How to detox toxic heavy metals

You can remove heavy metals with spirulina, barley grass, wild blueberries, seaweed and fresh herbs such as coriander and parsley. You can blend this all together with bananas and fresh orange juice, to make a very tastfull smoothie. Read more about this smoothie here!

Cookies, sweets and pastries are a no-no because of the many additives, fats and sugars.

Most soda cans are made of aluminum, aluminum foil is a popular item in the kitchen, and aluminum is also widely used in homes. Aluminum and mercury are also found in pesticides, fungicides and herbicides.

It is therefore quite something to deal with this. Most autistics have difficulty eating healthy and those with ADHD will not listen. I have a son with autism, and one with ADHD and can tell you all about it. But we must do our best to make changes. Because once it works, there will be improvement. Children become happier, listen better, become calmer, concentrate better and also eat healthier!

So it is definitely worth it!
