Did you know that an estimated 6.4 million children in the age range of 4 - 17 in the U.S, have been diagnosed with ADHD. And males are almost three times more likely to be diagnosed with ADHD than females.
And in adults . . . ADHD is reported to occur in about 4.4 percent of the adult population in the U.S. BUT . . . only a fraction of adults with ADHD are actually reported and receiving treatment. So I'm sure there are many more up us out there that have ADHD but aren't being treated, therefore not in these statistics..
So what is Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)? Well . . . it's a mental health disorder that can cause above-normal levels of hyperactive, impulsive behaviors and lack of self-control. Does that sound like anyone in the media these days?
Some of the symptoms may include:
Disorganization and problems prioritizing
Poor time management skills
Problems focusing on a single task
Excessive activity or restlessness
Low frustration tolerance
Sitting for long periods of time
Okay . . . so yesterday we spoke about "autism" and that there was an antibody called "IgG" involved. Well . . . today we're going to talk about another antibody called Immunoglobulin A (IgA). Now, IgA is an antibody that plays a crucial role in the immune function of mucous membranes.
Now . . . some people with an IgA deficiency are more likely to get frequent infections. These include sinus, lung, ear, eye and digestive infections, Or are more likely to have allergies, pneumonia and/or autoimmune problems such as celiac disease or lupus.
When these infections occur, they are due to the "bad" bacteria and its ethanol in the body running a muck again. We spoke of this in several previous Health Tips.
And most people with this bacteria infestation gone wild suffer immunity issues. With the most common signs of this infestation being - brain fog, poor memory, mood swings, anxiety, depression and "ADHD"!!!!!!
So what are some ways to increase our antibody IgA to fight the infection and symptoms from this "bad" bacteria?
Well . . . some nutrients and foods that enhance the immune system and its antibodies are - adding garlic into meals, eating nuts, salmon, mackerel, crab, lean meats, poultry, broccoli, Brussel sprouts, kale and almonds to mention just a few.
But I'll go back to what I've been saying all along . . . if you want to correct, heal, cure - whatever the terminology . . . ADHD or any of the topics we've spoken about in my past 80+ Health Tips . . . we MUST correct the body's "Internal Dialogue"!!!!!
So it makes we question . . . is this why so many people in today's current events are hyperactive, have impulsive behavior and lack of self-control?
Okay . . . so just one more thing to mention for the "adults" that have ADHD before I close today.
Having sex one or two times per week can increase an individual's antibody concentration by 30% and strengthen the immune system's antibody called "IgA".
