The Mayo Clinic Admits to Environmental Causes of ADHD/ADD, Neglects to Mention Holistic Healing Methods
What triggers ADHD? The Mayo Clinic staff list the following on their website, in this order:
“Altered brain function and anatomy, heredity, maternal smoking, drug use, exposure to toxins, and childhood exposure to environmental toxins and food additives.” Despite the admitted influence of environmental toxins and food additives, the Mayo Clinic staff only mentions medications and counseling as the “standard treatments for ADHD in children.” They add that additional treatments to “ease the effects of ADHD symptoms” such as “special accommodations in the classroom, and family and community support” may also be useful.
What about removing existing chemicals instead of adding more?
