No need for name calling, i understand you frustration but why not Argue the point instead of resorting to a primitive way of communication.

I think that changing the way you eat can definitely benefit your life but unfortunately i doubt that it can reverse neurological disorders, can it reduce the effect of some symptoms of Adhd from the prior unhealthy diet you were eating, sure i believe that but can it make it all disappear, i haven't seen any credible evidence for this happening.

So you are saying that the conspiracy is medical professionals do not want to talk about the importance of eating well because it will cut into their business model? Or is there some other nefarious means behind it?

As someone who is trained in this area and has spent years researching the mind, I can confirm that a serious change in diet can not only lessen symptoms but can also bring about what some may call a "cure" although this may suggest we are terminating something, when we are really strengthening.
What is your training and where is this research?

We now know that our gut has many of the same chemicals as our brain, and not only does our brain communicate with our body, but our gut also communicates with our brain. This is incredibly important to understand as we now see this how this results in many problems with the mind.

Gluten, sugar and caffeine are the main food types that are suggested to avoid, but in reality the cleaner our diet is, the better our mind will function. Not to mention all the other improvements on other health problems.
I value the importance of eating well and how the right types of food can almost cure certain health conditions so I am not anti-food knowledge. I know I made some major changes on the advice of someone here and it drastically reduced the gut issues I have and I have lost weight, so I am not poo-pooing the importance. But if you are saying that diet can cure adhd than I call BS on that.

There is plenty of research and lived experience to back this up. Please do research and speak with specialist trained in these areas. Someone trained in medicine can't be expected to know about research into food and mood which is a completely different and complex subject.
No, share the research you have. You cant post about how it makes a difference and then tell us to do the research. You need to share what research you are talking about.
