Child Cannot Sit in Chair

Posted by AD on 04/30/2008

I don't have a psychiatric doctor yet for my child but from what I observed and his teacher's observations. I don't have any doubt that my child has ADHD So far I did put my child on none dairy diet and no food additives, and I am giving him fish oil and multivitamin with the calcium supplements. I do see a lot of improvement and his teacher as well has noticed the improvement too, but the problem that he has now is that he cannot sit on his chair and he walks around in the class room my question is will the magnesium help to make him sit on the chair and follow the directions (the teacher says he is academically excellent)? If you have any other suggestions please help me with. Thank you very much.

First I have to give you the basics first. I have noticed that a great majority of ADHD came from vaccinations when they were first born. Certain live viruses contamination' (simian viruses, epstein barr virus, and mycoplasma), aluminum and mercury were the cause that prevents normal brain metabolism, especially normal myelin sheaths in some cases.

Usually the most beneficial supplements are, multivitamins, magnesium, fish oil, cod liver oil, once or twice weekly cilantro, and baking soda. And finally later on a temporary supplements of hydergine and piracetam would have cured the child in its final stages.

Now if we look at brain scans, such as SPECT scans of children with ADHD, for example, we find that a child's prefrontal brain is immediately reduced if he tries to concentrate. This is why the ADHD child has to be active, to help with the blood flow due to the constrictions of blood capillaries in the brain.

The simplest possible remedy, but it takes about 2-3 weeks to notice improvement is 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/3 glass of water taken twice a day for 5 days out of a week. A more effective remedy would have been to add a very small amount of potassium bicarbonate such as 1/16 teaspoon to the mix. The effect of alkalization will increase the blood flow, unfortunately, the calcium blocks capillary flow and calcium may cause the child to move around to increase blood flow to the prefrontal lobes. Certain other supplements reduce hyperactivity such as vitamin B complex, and certain other proteins may help normalize brain metabolism such as whey protein, but still, I have noticed certain ADHD child to be significantly improve if they AVOID aspartame, potatoes, yeast, cheese, milk, peppermint toothpaste, FLUORIDE toothpaste is used, and especially the soaps and detergents that contain fragrance. Avoiding those soaps with fragrance help a lot, but it also means the body has
high level of toxins, where L-glutathione may help reduce some toxicity, although I prefer a simpler 3 drops 3% H2O2 in a 1/2 glass of water as a milder form of detoxification further helps.

Hence the reason why a child has to walk is due to capillary constrictions caused by metabolic acidosis and baking soda and magnesium helps, with corresponding reduction in calcium. Capillary constrictions occur whenever the child uses concentration, to compensate the child tries to do exercise, and walk to increase the blood flow. Hence supplements that increases blood flow helps such as baking soda, some potassium bicarbonate and magnesium, being the simplest remedy i can think off that is easy to find.
