I do not have ADHD, but I've read a lot about it, as similar nutritional therapy is used for digestive illnesses. My daughter and I are both Paleo and recommend it also, but if it seems overwhelming, start with eliminating wheat first (read Wheat... (more)

From what I've been reading ADD, ADHD, etc are mostly inflammation/gut dysbiosis disorders. Get your Omega 3:6 balance sorted. Mostly by reducing/eliminating as many high O6 foods: all vegetable oils, most nuts, non-free-range eggs, avocados,... (more)

So far I've found the ADD-related content on Paleohacks to be pretty disappointing. I've thus been independently researching ADD and its potential relationship to diet and lifestyle. I've wondered on PH if persons with ADD who take stimulants... (more)

I stopped life long crushing depression by doing an autoimmune version of the paleo diet (back/neck pain largely went away as well). I also more then cut in half my generalized anxiety (both along w/ADD diagnosed at Amen Clinic). However, my ADD... (more)

In the book The Ultramind Solution, Dr. Mark Hyman notes a lot of instances where kids with ADD and ADHD changed significantly from cutting out gluten, dairy, and sugar. I don't usually recommend that book because Hyman seems to be building a bit... (more)
