ADHD: We Have Not Properly Diagnosed This Condition


In 2012 The Toronto Star published an article titled ADHD Drugs Suspected Of Hurting Canadian Kids. Recently, CBC Health News released an article titled ADHD Drugs To Add Suicide Risk Warnings  

Dr. Eldon Dahl, ND responded to the contents of both of these articles in an essay which he wrote titled "ADHD: We Have Not Properly Diagnosed This Condition."


ADHD: We Have Not Properly Diagnosed This Condition


When medical treatment for ADHD involves added side effect such as; strokes, convulsions. hallucinations, depression and suicide, you have the wrong medication. These are very serious side effects for treating a not so serious health condition. 

Taken from the Toronto Star report, "The regulator says the benefit of the drugs, when properly prescribed and used, outweigh the risk." But what if the condition of ADHD is wrongly diagnosed and grouped as a mental disorder, like drawing fish net they become part of the catch. Children as young as 6 being drugged for ADHD, the article goes on to say "All side effects doctor's aren't required to report." Parents are left in the dark for the don't know all the risks.

According to the CDC 1 in 5 children have mental disorder in the USA; potentially that is 6.6 million children needing prescription drugs, which is big business and normally for the extension of their lives.

When we think of ADHD we associate the condition and victims as being erratic in behavior and hard to control due to their over active minds. Children that are diagnosed as being ADHD disrupt the norm; in class rooms they need added attention which takes the teachers attention from fellow students. Home life is also disrupted as they constantly move like rabbits, in other words they are much more work than non-ADHD children.

Society needs these children controlled and the only means they have at their disposal is pharmaceutical drugs. Clarification must be given, ADHD children are not stupid or retarded. In actuality their intelligence is above normal in most cases. The diagnosis is wrong. Physician's group ADHD behavior but don’t look if they have any other underlying medical conditions such as dietary triggers,instead they are grouped as mentally unstable.

The Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry conducted a study involving 7 year old Swedish students - The Comorbidity of ADHD in the General Population of Swedish School-age Children.

The study concluded that pure ADHD is rare even in a general population sample. 

Thus, studies reporting on ADHD cases without comorbidity probably refer to highly atypical samples. By and large, such studies cannot inform rational clinical decisions. 



Medical comorbidity - more specifically psychiatric comorbidities - occur alongside eating disorders. Understanding that comorbid conditions are intertwined with an eating disorder and treating both the eating disorder and co-occurring illness (in this case ADHD) are critical in dealing with the issue for recovery.When comorbidities or the underlying issues are present, the main objective of treatment is psychiatric and medical stabilization, the core issue, the diet, must be addressed first before patients can be treated therapeutically for ADHD. 

The western diet is the main cause of ADHD hidden refined sugar is one of the main culprits. A clinical Raine study followed 2,868 live births, and 14 year follow up. Two major dietary patters were identified: "Western" and "Healthy."A higher score for Western dietary pattern was associated with ADHD diagnosis (odd ratio = 2.21, 95% confidence interval = 1.18, 4.13) after adjusting for known confounding factors from pregnancy to 14 years. ADHD diagnosis was not associated with the "Healthy' dietary pattern. Conclusion: A Western style diet may be associated with ADHD.

Before we begin medicating our children for ADHD the first step needs to examine the diet and once the diet becomes “healthy” the condition may no longer exist.

After dietary factors are addressed, treatment can begin. I would recommend L- tryptophan (fermented) with P5P to enable the tryptophan to cross the blood brain barrier in order to reach the cell membranes, clinical studies suggest 800 to 1,000 mg per day.

L-Tyrosine (fermented) is useful, especially in cases where adrenaline and dopamine metabolism problems exist. Therapeutic dosage range is between 6,000 to 10,000 mg per dosage. This is not to be used by individuals who are unable to synthesize L-tyrosine from L-phenylalanine (i.e. individuals with phenylketonuria).

GABA, has demonstrated an amazing potential for treating ADHD, mainly as a calming agent that helps to relax the brain, which is essential for ADHD. Positive results have been reported with doses between 1000-1500 mg/day, 2 to 3 times per day

Is There A Relationship Between Your Diet And Alzheimer's?



Alzheimer's: Is There A Relationship Between 
Cognitive Decline And Your Diet?

There is an old saying "you are what you eat?' Hence, "Is there a relationship between Alzheimer's and your diet?

In a recent article in the Bloomberg News titled New Research: We May Be Looking At Alzheimer's All Wrong  the author of the article suggest that current research on Alzheimer's, both academic and pharmaceutical , is fixated on treating the final stages of Alzheimer's and as a result is placing there focus on a protein called beta amyloid

Conversely, the Mayo Clinic suggests that research should instead be focused on a substance called tau proteins. According to some researchers this is the real source of cognitive decline and memory loss. 

When asked to comment on this divergence Life Choice's CEO Dr. Eldon Dahl, ND said,   


"In a simple explanation the tau protein stabilizes the structure within the nerve cells that the cells need to divide, carry substances, (transport nutrients/food) for support. If this protein becomes abnormal, it will form twisted fibers inside of the nerve cells and destroy them, which causes various neurological diseases by the misfiring of neurons, the electrical impulses become blocked and messages can’t get through.


But we should go deeper to what causes the tau protein to form in the first place, prevention is a must.  A diet consisting of low saturated fat and low glycemic index (glycemic index is a measure of how fast a food releases its sugars into the blood) has been shown to improve mental performance. 

Eating a diet containing low saturated fat and foods with a low glycemic index increases cognitive abilities when compared it to a diet high in saturated fats and with high glycemic index foods, (again sugar is the real culprit)"

W.H.O. and The Lancet Acknowledge “The Human Body Is Under Attack by Airborne Carcinogenic Toxins”

 
Our cells are being oxidized due to exposure; antioxidants kill oxidation. Free radicals are the basis for cells becoming altered to the point of being carcinogenic. Free radicals change very quickly, and depending on the contact bonds, they make these "dangling" bonds produce free radicals that are highly chemically reactive towards other substances. In this case, a chemical that is known to be carcinogenic can be very reactive within the body.

A carcinogen is a cell known to cause cancer. It is characterized by an increase in the number of abnormal cells derived or taken from a given normal tissue. The invasion of adjacent tissues by these abnormal cells and lymphatic and/or blood-borne cells spread malignant mutant cells to the lymph nodes and to distant sites (metastasis). It has been estimated that about 75–80% of all human cancers are environmentally induced; 30–40% of them are from diet, more than likely eating chemically laden food. Only a small minority, possibly no more than 2% of all cases, result purely from inherent genetic changes.

Winnipeg is still spraying the poison Malathion every year for mosquito prevention. Recent news said the city
 will review its use of malathion after a new United Nations study classified the insecticide as probably carcinogenic. When I was a child we used to have the ice cream truck driving through our neighborhoods; now they are driving through spraying a deadly chemical while we sleep. Have we gone completely mad?

It is high time that the W.H.O. began examining these known toxic chemicals. They can only hide until the evidence is overwhelming, as it currently stands for the glyphosate, the main ingredient in Round-Up.

The chemical Diazinon is used on our children’s school playgrounds, and by most gardeners and landscapers doing commercial and residential properties. What do you think would happen if the unsuspecting clients--and for that matter, the employees working with these chemicals--poured the solutions without gloves or respirators, knowing that they are risking their lives spraying a known carcinogen? The dangers would more than outweigh the benefits.

Life Choice has products that will help those who have been contaminated: Thyroid SupportP5P complexThymus GlandAdrenal GlandZinc PicolinateHgH+Colloidal Silver, and Melatonin.   

We must be vigilant about the true nature of our surroundings and guard ourselves accordingly. If we are aware of these hazards but choose to ignore them, we will only endanger ourselves in the long term.


Studies:
The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), the specialized cancer agency of the World Health Organization, has assessed the carcinogenicity of five organophosphate pesticides. A summary of the final evaluations together with a short rationale have now been published online in The Lancet Oncology.

A national public health and environmental group, Beyond Pesticides, is calling on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to stop the use of the country’s most popular herbicide, glyphosate, in the wake of an international ruling that it causes cancer in humans. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) released its finding concluding that there is sufficient evidence of carcinogenicity based on laboratory studies.

Dr. Eldon Dahl, ND Challenges The Validity Of A CBC Market Place Report Titled Drugstore Remedies: "Licensed To Deceive"

Dr. Eldon Dahl, ND Challenges The Validity Of A CBC Market Place 
Report Titled Drugstore Remedies: "Licensed To Deceive"

An Opt Editorial By Dr. Eldon Dahl, ND

(On Friday March 13, 2015 CBC’s Market Place aired a report  titled  Drugstore Remedies: “Licensed to Deceive”  Dr. Eldon Dahl, a trained naturopath and the CEO of Life Choice Ltd. challenges the validity of that report with the following opt editorial) 


Our industry seemed a bit worried in advance of the Market Place Report titled, Drugstore remedies: “Licensed to Deceive,” by host Erica Johnson, which aired March 13, 2015. Our trade association, CHFA, sent an email to all members in advance of the airing so they would not be too surprised. In the email they made the comment, “We stand behind the safety, quality and efficacy of natural health products, and will work to ensure that Canadians understand that these products are in fact rigorously regulated by Health Canada, and that they can continue to be confident when purchasing and using natural health products.”

I feel a statement must be made in order to point out the errors. To set the records straight, I am a member of the CHFA and have been for many years, and what I can say about them is,“They sure put on a good health show.” Our products are all licensed by Health Canada.In reality, a natural product number (NPN)given to a product is no guarantee of high quality.What it does show is that your product is documented and under the control and licensing body of Health Canada. The key to the products having efficacy has more to do with business ethics than it does with a product license.

Market Place focused their attention on homeopathic remedies and mainly on the product Mosi-Q, an oral treatment for preventing mosquito bites.In all honesty, they showed no mercy.In all fairness, homeopathic medicine cannot be tested like they did on the program: one application 30 minutes before putting your arm in a cage infested with mosquitos.As a homeopathic product it was failure without question. And I believe they knew it would end this way and that is why they did it on national television. In addition, to show NPN licensed products as being highly questionable,they licensed their own fictitious homeopathic remedy and cited that the licensing procedure had gaping holes.In the end, they received a product license for an imaginary product by producing nothing more than a photo copy from a book and filling in the proper paperwork. This procedure can easily be manipulated by those who are unlearned of true natural medicine and or unethical people who focus mainly is on money and not on healing.

Market Place Report was a one-sided attack without the opportunity of rebuttal.They had as an authority to answer questions of homeopathic medicine an MD who had very limited formal education concerning nutrition or the natural health industry.The reporter used loaded questions knowing what the answers would be in order to make her point stick with the viewers. My question is this, “Why was there not a homeopathic doctor on the program who could explain how classical homeopathic medicine works, and to allow equal time for the natural health industry side in order to present an equal argument and allow the public to decide?” Their objective was accomplished: they wanted to show the entire licensing scheme as a joke.

The tactic the reported used at the end of the program was a classic CBC trick. The reporter was in the Parliament Hill Rotunda placing a call to the Minister of Health, making it appear that the Minister would not respond to Market Place's questions. In reality, Parliament Hill Press and CBC are aware that no cabinet Minister is available for a direct call. Their staff takes all calls and prioritizes responses for a time when the Minister is available. The CBC constantly commits a sin of omission by not telling viewers whether or not the Minister is in their office or even in town -- making the government appear insensitive or arrogant and disinterested.

Those of us in the know understand the licensing concerns,and due to the position we are currently in, a sub class of drugs, damaging pointed attacks by the media affects all licensed natural health products—from those sold in the Dollar Store to professional therapeutic medicinal quality brands.   

CHFA should not allow this issue to simmer in hopes it goes away.What happens if it repeats, do we still sit by idly once again? In my opinion CHFA should contact this reporter and demand equal rights to be heard.If the CBC refuses to cooperate, they should contact their counterpart, CTV News, W5, Doc Zone, or the Fifth Estate.

Real investigative journalism would interview both sides using authorities from the medical / pharmaceutical side and the naturopathic / homeopathic natural medicine side--people who understand the issues and can discuss the benefits and downfalls of natural health products (NHP) and pharmaceutical drugs. In reality, can you really say Health Canada or for that matter the CHFA are the authorities of medicine?One is a government bureaucracy and the other is a member-driven trade show organizer.Who are the real voices of health care?

The CHFA must point out the flaws in the current licensing of natural health products in order to come clean and to be respected.Prevention is a much better way than waiting for the next attack. Does Health Canada care about the natural health industry’s survival? I am not too sure they do.Health Canada has yet to prove that they take a supportive position.       

Natural medicine has been with us in some form or another from the beginning of time, and it is here to stay. The views from allopathic medicine and natural medicine will always differ.Natural medicine seeks the cause of illness for treatment, and allopathic medicine treats the symptoms and performs first aid when needed. Attacks are not new and will continue, the strength of the health industry will be decided whether we stand up against the attacks or sit quietly in hopes they go away.

Sugar and Mental Illness


With the recent WHO decision about sugar, the topic has been in the media even more lately. 

Sugar is an addictive drug that made its way into households around the world and is considered safe. Refined sugar in excessive amounts contribute to childhood obesity, leading to a breakdown in metabolism and depression. The more the person becomes depressed, the more sugar is consumed as comfort. The addiction is attributed to the quick energy created by increase blood glucose levels. However, every high has an equal or greater low once these glucose levels retreat, which brings lethargy and creates the cycle of low self-esteem. The elevated blood glucose levels catalyze the absorption of tryptophan through the large neutral amino acid (LNAA) complex and its subsequent conversion into the mood-elevating chemical serotonin.

Several studies have shown the devastating link between sugar consumption and mental illness, as well. In 2004, the British Journal of Psychiatry found that a higher dietary intake of refined sugar and dairy products lead to a worse 2-year outcome for schizophrenics.

2001 study found that rats given 25% glucose with their food showed symptoms similar to drug addiction--craving and loss of control.

In March 2010, the American Journal of Psychiatry published a study covering women aged 20-93. Those who ate a "traditional" diet of fruits, vegetables, meat, fish, and whole grains had lower odds for depression, dysthymia, or anxiety disorders. Those who ate a more "westernized" diet with processed foods, fried foods, sugars, refined grains, and beer had a higher chance of developing these mental issues.

A healthy diet is critical--processed foods, fat, and sugars are empty calories void of nutrients. Bellies may be full, but bodies and minds are starving. Because today's food is depleted of nutritional value, supplements are a great way to ensure your body is getting the supplies it needs to fight off mental illness.

If you want to avoid sugar read your labels, there is only one sure way. Don't buy anything unless it says in plain English: "No sugar added". And don’t be deceived with the trickery using the word "carbohydrate" this is a "scientific sleight of hand gesture " a word sugar pushers use, it’s their ace in a hole strategy..

Another trick "Made from natural ingredients", even refined sugar is made from natural ingredients. Be it from cane sugar, and or sugar beets, beets are sourced from 100% genetically modified organism (GMO). Franken sugar, just wait and see what this produces. Heroin could be advertised as being “made from natural ingredients.” The opium poppy is as natural as the sugar beet. It's what man does with it that tells the story. When is a food a food and when is it a poison? That is the question society must answer.

Life Choice Introduces A New Natural Health Product For Woman Called "Active Woman"

Life Choice Introduces A New Natural Health 
Product For Woman Called "Active Woman"

Active Woman

Active Woman represents a unique formulation of the most effective breakthrough ingredients known to the medical/nutritional world, all in one capsule.  The formula creates a synergistic relationship between ingredients, which work together and enhance each other’s abilities to create energy and endurance.


A proven fat burner, with the added ability to inhibit the production of new fat, Active Woman provides a powerful weapon to attack the flab, when combined with a program of reduced intake of dietary calories and increased physical activity. 

Its medically-proven ingredients, each with its own distinct nutritional benefit, include the following:

Garcinia Cambogia, also known as Citrimax, is a plant extract of the exotic Malabar Tamarind.  It has the amazing triple ability to inhibit fat production and control hunger, while reducing existing fat stores.

 L-Arginine, an amino acid, helps support healthy cardiovascular function and increased capacity for exercise.

 Green Tea Leaf Extract (standardized to 45% EGCG, or Epigallocatechingallate) is one of the active ingredients found in green tea. It produces a thermogenic, or heating, response in the body, especially when combined with caffeine.  Thermogenic response boosts the metabolic rate by increasing the speed of adipose (fat) tissue breakdown.

 Caffeine increases the body’s ability to burn excess calories through the production of body heat, and is the perfect partner for the green tea leaf extract.  Caffeine also acts as a mild suppressant to appetite.  In addition, it acts as a diuretic, and therefore can substantially increase urinary output, helping in temporary weight loss.

 MucunaPruriens, or Velvet Bean Seed Extract, has been gaining popularity in the sports nutrition industry for its ability to promote the production of testosterone, which in turn stimulates growth hormone to increase muscle mass.

 Chromium Picolinate has been shown in recent research to have the dual effect of controlling appetite and increasing lean muscle, helping to redefine and reshape the body. This is especially valuable during a program of weight loss.

 L-Carnitine is an amino acid that is primarily known for its ability to turn fat into energy. Long chain fatty acids are carried via L-Carnitine to cellular mitochondria, where they are burned to create energy. L-Carnitine has important applications in matters such as exercise, heart health, weight control, neurological health and infant nutrition.

  Copper helps in the normal functioning of many systems in the body, including insulin production, the cardiovascular system, and the nervous system.

 Iodine is a key component in a healthy thyroid, which provides a healthy metabolism.

 Molybdenum is a micronutrient that metabolizes fats, carbs, and iron from the liver.
