What’s causing the rise in ADHD?

(click above for original article)

I love this article Dr. Mercola did on ADHD. He addresses many different factors that may play into this diagnosis that so many people are facing today. I thought this excerpt was really interesting, “According to some, the disorder may not even be a “real” disorder at all. Psychiatrist Leon Eisenberg, hailed as the “scientific father of ADHD,” actually went on record saying that ADHD is “a prime example of a fictitious disease.” He made this stunning confession in a 2012 interview with the German paper Der Spiegel, just seven months prior to his death6 at the age of 87.”

Mercola discusses some dietary factors to also address if you or someone you know is diagnosed with ADHD.

It is worth the read and let me know what you think!

Summer Sun Soak Up

I recently visited my sister on my spring break and had tons of time in the sun. While my horribly pale skin was anticipating the sun, the last thing I wanted to do was get burned.
I grew up in a very traditional home with chemical cleaners, antibiotics, and anything else that wasn’t necessarily natural.
(Thankfully my mom cooked so I don’t have to add in microwavable and other extremely processed foods!)
However, every summer we coated on the sunscreen because thats what you were supposed to do, right?
Well now that I am on my own and exploring different options to better my health it got me thinking about this topic on the way to the pool one day.
I found an article through Mercola.com that I really enjoy and agree with. This is a very trustworthy site to get natural health news from and I tend to visit it often.

One of my favorite quotes of the article by Dr. Mercola is, “There are many simple lifestyle changes you can make to radically decrease your risk of sunburn, such as choosing your essential fatty acids wisely, increasing your consumption of raw vegetables loaded with skin-protecting antioxidant phytonutrients, and avoiding processed foods and sugars.”

Hope you enjoy this video and hope it helps answer any questions you may have on the topic!
