ADD and Omega 3
by Anonymous Visitor
The appended article contains a natural, and supremely effective cure for Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Hyper Activity Disorder (HAD).
It is incomparably superior to Ritalin as it not only cures these conditions, but dramatically improves the kid's and toddler's intelligence, ability to concentrate, their learning ability, their social skills and responses - even the bonding between parents and child.
BACKGROUND - ARTICLE BELOW Fish oil is high in Omega-3 fatty acids, the substance which makes up about 1/3 of our brains and nervous systems. So is all seafood, from the cold waters of the sea, and particularly so sardines, herring, trout, salmon, halibut, albacore, shrimp, clams, light chunk tuna, catfish and cod.
Essentially, all fish and seafood with 'dark' meat are particularly high in Omega-3 fatty acids - and in addition, all seafood also contains the complete range of the 72 natural trace elements, which is another major - and crucially vital - factor for our mental and physical health.
Consequently, even better than fish oil is a daily serving of a minimum of 4 ounces of seafood for a 125 lb. (60kg) adult - and more is better - with similar amounts for toddlers and kids.
Since brain volume doubles in the first year of their lives, and their brains and nervous systems keep pace with their rapid physical growth, infants, toddlers and kids need a great deal of the Omega-3 fatty acids, and pound per pound - far more than an adult where brain and neural development has been completed.
There is every indication that our daily food is severely deficient in the Omega-3 fatty acids, and that there is something seriously wrong with our food.
Until recently, a few decades ago, fish was not a required source of Omega-3 fatty acids. I, for one, grew up without practically any fish in my nutrition. Mother 'murdered' fish dishes so badly that everyone refused to eat them, with the result that mother gave up on fish.
It wasn't until my mid-twenties that I had, with much trepidation and upon much assurance from my friends, a fish dish in a Chinese restaurant. And I
have been blessed, like everyone else, with a lively and acute mind all my life.
Indeed, there are many hundreds of millions of people in landlocked areas, and particularly in regions without refrigeration, who have never eaten a fish in all their lives - yet they have lively and fully functional minds.
The most dramatic example are the Hunza, of the Himalayas, who have never seen a fish in all their lives, yet were, according to the English army doctors who first examined them, "the ideal of human mental and physical health". Indeed, their superior wits kept them undefeated against the many acquisitive attempts of much larger neighbours.
Attention Deficit Disorder and Hyper Activity Disorder are very recent advents. I grew up in a large area of high density family-oriented apartments in Berlin, Germany, and personally knew many hundreds of kids. And not a single case of Attention Deficit Disorder, or Hyper Activity Disorder, neither around home, nor in the schools I went to, or anywhere else that I was aware of.
So, if there are only a few sources of Omega-3 fatty acids other than seafood - i.e. walnuts, flaxseed oil, canola oil and spinach - where did our bodies obtain the large amounts of Omega-3 fatty acids we needed for healthy mental and physical development - or for that matter, where did women obtain the large amounts of Omega-3 fatty acids they needed for the healthy development of their foetuses, and after birth, in their mothers milk for their infants healthy growth and development? Where did they come from?
There are ample sources of Omega-6 fatty acids in our regular food, and it may well be that our bodies simply converted Omega-6 fatty acids to Omega-3 fatty acids, but have now lost that ability, due to the lack of one or more specific trace elements which performed enzymatic or catalytic function.
I see no other explanation for the sudden scarcity of Omega-3 fatty acids in our systems.
Terri's Comments: Thanks for sharing. Omega 3 is certainly essential for proper brain function. It is an Essential Fatty Acid that is vital to our health.
