Re: How I cured my ADD

Lunacie if I had to pick when modernization of food began I would say in the last 100 years. In the last century we weren’t just crossing specimens with favorable qualities, we began inducing mutations using radiation, chemicals known to induce mutagenesis, and also genetically modifying our foods.

I guess the food availability being out of ratio compared to the amount of effort and time elapsed (while in a fasted state to acquire said food ) to acquire said food has been out of whack since we settled down and started farming.

I understand Most diseases of the western diet have been around “forever” but the uptick in the percentage of people affected, I believe , is directly connected to overeating without periods of fasting and also due to how we’ve changed much of our food to be hyper processed

Not being rude here but i disagree. I believe the increase in diagnosis has
more to do with better information and lots of research having been done.

I do agree that hyper-processed foods are not so healthy. On the other hand
we have more availability of veggies and fruit than were available 100 years
ago.

Re: How I cured my ADD

For the record, ADHD is actually under diagnosed, especially in adults.

Good Luck.

I was prediabetic and had gastric bypass which helped me to lose weight by sticking to a very specific eating plan and using it as a tool and not a solution. I wouldnt say its cured I guess because I was in the pre-stage. I stopped drinking and helped my liver, esophogus, stomach and other organs rebound but I wouldnt say I cured alcoholism.

We’ve been led to believe it’s okay to eat high carb diets, that eating three times a Day is healthy (natural/normal), that going hungry or fasting is bad. What if all of that is wrong? What if to help our ailment one of the things we must do is eat more naturally (the way we ate through evolution) and eat less often (heck, even go hungry or fast every now and then).
Personally I dont do high carbs and the carbs I do are compex carbs. I eat 6 small amounts everyday.

Re: How I cured my ADD

Whilst I cannot refute a healthy diet and lifestyle is important to anyone's cognitive functioning, I do not believe there's a 'cure' for ADHD or similar disorders/conditions. You can certainly improve your life through diet, exercise, medication and education though. Though it is perhaps more important that we ADHDers make smarter lifestyle choices than the masses due to our particular impairments.

Incidentally, I tried the well publicised GAP diet for a while in 2015 but it didn't make any difference to me personally. But stimulants certainly help in clearing my rather debilitating 'brain fog', which presumably is symptomatic of one or both of my formal diagnoses - autism and combined-type ADHD.

Re: How I cured my ADD

ADHD can't be "cured". However, I genuinely believe that it can be managed very well with healthy lifestyle decisions, which if done correctly can absolutely blow medication away.

The challenge is sticking to those decisions and not allowing yourself to deviate from them for one moment. Which can be extremely difficult for anyone with ADHD.

Re: How I cured my ADD

If you cured your ADD, you never actually had it in the first place.
