Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) is a condition characterized by behavioral and learning disorders. It interferes with the ability to stay on a task. It affects 3-5% of children and is twice as prevalent in boys than girls.
Some of the warning signs of A.D.D. include failure to listen to instructions, inability to organize work, fidgeting with hands and feet, talking too much, leaving work unfinished, and having trouble paying attention to details.
There are other names for A.D.D.: attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD or AD/HD) hyperkinetic disorders, hyperkinetic conduct disorder, disturbance of activity and attention and hyperkinetic syndrome.
Candida Overgrowth symptoms can mimic those of A.D.D. and ADHD. Typical A.D.D. treatments may suppress the symptoms but they will do little to relieve the underlying cause... Candida.
Studies have shown that the treatment program will help most cases of A.D.D. and A.D.H.D. You can restore normal thinking again.
There are many cases of A.D.D. that are related to food allergies. Removing the allergen will make the symptoms subside.
The Candida diet is good for this because it removes most allergens from the diet. Make sure that you also avoid all artificial flavors and colors.
Using one of the treatment programs and keeping a journal your eating habits will help get the Candida overgrowth under control. Since some cases of A.D.D. are caused by excess Candida, the A.D.D. will also be under control.
