Dr. Daniel amen healing add
by: Anonymous

Hi Gaven
There's a brain Dr. Dr. Daniel amen and you can go on line to www.amenclinics.com and his website can tell you all about the 7 types of ADHD and he and his wife tana amen can help. He has a kit called healing add in 30 days you can do at home also theres clinics you can visit if you can. I'm doing the kit now. Dr. Amen is wonderful. Have you heard of them? He also does brain scans at his clinics. The kit is great. Try it.
Hope this helps. He helps you figure out which types of adhd you have and what natural supplements you can take and if you need to he tells you what medications to try. There's DVDs and a cookbook PDF and a book included.
Good luck.

Don't Give Up Gavin!
by: Anonymous

Hi Gavin!

Listen - No matter what, don't GIVE UP!

I'm 55 years old, and have been ADD my whole life!

My mother was always being called in to talk to my teachers, especially in 2nd and 3rd grade, because I could never pay attention, and was always looking out the classroom window.

Even to this day it takes all I have to focus.

Back then - no one even knew what ADD was. It was considered either a disciplinary or intellectual problem.

First Gavin -

Don't be afraid.

This may not sound like good advice, but it is.

Try not to take your condition seriously. Doing so will cause fear and anxiety.

Just relax Gavin.

When you awake in the morning - don't worry about what problems ADHD will cause today.

Relax - and "choose" to do your best to calmly work through it, come what may.

Next - take your problems to the creator of the universe in prayer.

(Science has proven that prayer works. Don't believe it? Do the research.)

Ask God to help you to relax, and to rest in him.

Also - you ARE a product of your environment Gavin!

So, get rid of the garbage in your life.

Examples - Negatives like poor diet (Get rid of junk food, especially soda).

Negative movies (especially porn) or music with twisted or bad lyrics.

Bad or violent video games.

Bad or negative people.

Eat good, healthy, unprocessed foods.

Thank God for all that you have.

Focus on the GOOD things.

Even if they are small (like your pet, your warm bed, your home, the flowers and the trees).

DO these things - and you WILL see positive results.

God Bless You Gavin!

Take Care!
