Testimony of Audrey Lampert's 12 yr old son Clayton
Having been diagnosed as & medicated for ADHD, in fact, "Clayton did NOT have a neurologic or psychiatric 'disease.' He had a 'broken brain' caused by nutritional imbalance; toxicity & altered immune, neurotransmitter & digestive functions. Treating those (NUTRITIONAL) root causes & correcting the imbalances led to the resolution of ALL his symptoms."

Pinus+Pinaster suppliment for ADHD - Pycnogenol -George M. Kapalka's Nutritional and Herbal Therapies for Children and Adolescents, 2010 @ -

Pycnogenol is a generic name for a mixture of procyanidins extracted from the bark of the pine tree (Pinus maritima) common to the Gascogne region of France. Pycnogenol has many active compounds, primarily consisting of dimmers of catechin, & oligomers of catechin and epicatechin. Similar compounds are also found in cocoa, chocolate, & some fruit. Their pharmacodynamic action primarily consists of antioxidant properties & possible anti-inflammatory effects. Pycnogenol may also influence the release of catecholamines (including dopamine and norepinephrine) & nitric oxide synthesis...
Some researchers reported that oxidative stress may underlie symptoms of Parkinson’s disorder (Olanow, 1996), and some have hypothesized that similar factors may underlie symptoms of ADHD. For many decades, pycnogenol has been used in Europe to treat symptoms of hyperactivity. Heimann (1999) reviewed many anecdotal reports & reported a case study where supplementation with pycnogenol for 4 weeks resulted in a significant decrease in hyperactivity & impulsivity in a patient with ADHD. A subsequent trial with 61 children & adolescents with ADHD also found beneficial effects after taking 1
 mg/kg of pycnogenol for 1 month (Trebaticka et al., 2006). Notably, the treatment effects were more significant in boys than in girls.
Another study also found that the addition of pycnogenol to the treatment of ADHD with dextroamphetamine was superior to the use of dextroamphetamine alone (Medical Economics, 2008a
Pycnogenol is generally supplied in tablets & capsules, and creams & lotions containing it are also available but have not been studied for their effectiveness. Pycnogenol is generally dosed at the ratio of 1 mg/kg, & adult doses range from 25–200 mg/day. Pycnogenol is generally well tolerated & the available literature reports no adverse effects. However, because it may produce vasorelaxation & inhibition of platelet activity, those who take blood thinners (for example, aspirin) should exercise caution.

ADHD, dyslexia + certain behavioral disorders are referred to as "phospho-lipid" disorders.
Phosphatidyl-serine (PS) is a phospho-lipid nutrient related to fatty acids. 
It combines an amino acid component & a fatty acid component. 
Like essential fatty acids PS is vital to normal functioning of neurotransmitter systems, brain metabolism, brain cell connections & brain cell membrane fluidity. 
It may also help lower cortisol which is increased in chronic stress.
90%  of brain growth occurs in 1st 3 years.  Superior nutrition during gestation & preschool years is imperative.
Professor S Schoenthaler  found that 1 group of children confined in a psychiatric correctional facility all had clinical signs of poor nutrition confirmed by blood analysis.  Correction reduced violence. 
Excess sugar/junk food intake has also been implicated in ADHD. Rule out thyroid abnormality. 
There are a number of medical theories, but insufficient documentation.

Many intelligent & creative people are not as productive as they can be, or they may even be self-sabotaging (with 'inner conflict'), because the left & right hemispheres of their brains are not working harmoniously, & sometimes even 'fighting' against each other.  The 2 hemispheres need to be adjusted & integrated properly. 
Inner-ear dysfunctions may also need to be corrected.
The prayer session demonstrates HOW to correct them by the Power of God. 
Many ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) & learning disability conditions have also been healed.
Hormann, Dr Aiko -
Question: How do you help people with ADD & ADHD?
ADD & ADHD has a frontal lobe either over-active or under-active and not balance. In ADD & ADHD - you need to tap the very center of the top of the head to stimulate the Para-sympathetic Nervous System.
So actually, the bala nce between Sympathetic Nervous System & Para-sympathetic Nervous System maybe out of kilter.  People who are agitated or who are over-active, attention deficit, usually have more Sympathetic Nervous System.
1 way of producing more Para-sympathetic Nervous system is looking at the center in front of you & moving both index fingers to the side to stimulate peripheral visions. ( Peripheral vision exercise) When you do this often enough, keep seeing index fingers on the side & your eyeballs fixed straight ahead. As you do this, you're actually stimulating the Para-sympathetic Nervous System. So that will calm the person with ADD & ADHD.
But diet has a lot to do with it. Sugar should be eliminated all together & soda. Diet coke is not good. 
Carbonated drinks are not good either. Most sugar-free diet coke & other sodas has a neuro-toxin brain damaging aspartame in it. It will cause you to gain weight. Check labels for aspartame.
Sugar-free chewing gums are notorious for (containing) aspartame. Find chewing gum with zylitol, the best. (However) the new Zero-coke has aspartame.
The calories maybe true, but it would be destroying your brain cells + causing you to gain weight.

Do you say then ADD & ADHD children should NOT have any preservatives or processed food?
Yes, lots of processed food have chemicals. Sugar is the major cause of hyper-activity in children. Honey is better but is still sugar. Splenda is just as bad. Stevia is better but zylitol is much better.


24 year old male diagnosed with ADHA & social anxiety disorder was evaluated from the hormonal aspect & placed on an orthomolecular diet, which helped both him & his girlfriend.  Total cholesterol was examined, as cholesterol is the building block/precursor of many hormones.  Low total cholesterol is suspect in mental illness.  2/2006

ADHD diagnosis is in the eyes - "Tel Aviv University, University of Haifa & Sheba Medical Center shows that involuntary eye movements accurately reflect the presence of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), as well as the benefits of medical stimulants that are used to treat the disorder."

6/29/2005 ADHD drugs such as Concerta (methylphenidate) and Ritalin (long acting methylphenidate -considered a generic) may cause visual hallucinations, suicidal ideation, psychotic behavior, aggression, cardiovascular issues, hypertension, chest pain, arrhythmias and tachycardia, + rapid heartbeat.
3/15/2006 ADHD drugs (Adderall, Concerta, Ritalin, Strattera) may cause mania, an increase in suicidal thinking, hallucinations (both visual and tactile, involving insects, snakes & worms), psychosis (the inability to distinguish real and imaginary events), or cardiovascular events (strokes or sudden death). 
Canada  removed Adderall off the market in 2005.
Recommendation is that drugs carry a Black Box warning, FDA's strictest.
ADD ADHD patients with no change in symptoms may be re-diagnosed & given bipolar meds as FDA
has lowered age to which children may be given anti-psychotic drugs.  9/2007

ADHD - 11/24/2007 - "ADHD has become an epidemic among school children. But is ADHD, attention deficit hyperactive disease, a real disease with a real chemical imbalance in the brain or is it simply a behavior problem ?  What’s a parent to do with a child who is bouncing off the walls?  What’s wrong with Ritalin if it helps children focus their attention & do better in school?

He says there's a link between school violence & psychiatric drugs yet schools & courts force parents to drug their kids.  Dr. Peter Breggin says, 'In every case that I have withdrawn stimulants from a child diagnosed with ADHD, they have done better, even spectacularly better, without drugs.'“
