When children have special needs, those closest to them may suffer.  Parents of children with special needs often experience emotional problems such as fear, sadness, rage, loneliness, and guilt.  They also experience physical problems such as exhaustion and self-neglect.  Many report their health as “fair to poor“ and over half say their diets and exercise habits have deteriorated since their parenting responsibilities began.  They also report that they do not regularly keep their own medical appointments.  It is important for those caring for those with special needs to address and treat their own issues as well.

There are other options for keeping ADD, ADHD and DYSLEXIA under control without side effects that often accompany a Big Pharma prescription. Like physicians, Big Pharma should take the same oath before dealing out major side effects to children: Primum non nocere.  It means, "First do no harm."

Although medication can be helpful in some children, drug-free treatments exist and should be explored first.  Y3K Tutor In Your Home offers remedies that can give relief without dangerous side effects.

Cause of ADHD Found? Mothers Eating Fish While Pregnant

Posted by admin in young children , Massachusetts , MA , lunch , illness , health , food , children , Boston , ADHD , ADD

Initial research suggests that pregnant women who eat lots of fish – especially tuna, swordfish and other fish with high mercury levels are more likely to have children with ADHD.  Researchers from the Boston University School of Public Health tracked 788 Massachusetts children between 1993 and 1998.  Then they had the children’s mothers keep food diaries while they were pregnant so they could see how much fish the women ate. They took hair samples from them after they gave birth so they could test their mercury levels. 

Eight years later, they asked the children’s teachers if the kids exhibited ADHD-like symptoms, such as hyperactivity, impulsiveness and inattentiveness.  The researchers concluded that the women who had the most mercury in their hair were 60% more likely to have a child who exhibited ADHD-like behavior.
