"If you only do some digging, you'll find more entertaining and enjoyable activity options that you'll know what to do with. You'll easily find one that your child with ADD/ADHD will want to pour his or her energy and concentration into. Identifying Their Passion Replacing empty, time-wasting activities with constructive ones is similar to swapping junk foods for nourishing food. You'd never expect the great difference that comes from just a few simple adjustments."

"Either way, you'll have your first clue into a healthy activity that can substitute for the unhealthier ones. • You can gather plenty of clues about what your child may be interested in by observing the types of video games or television shows they prefer. Kids who like fighting games may have built-in enthusiasm for martial arts classes (where, by the way, they'll learn discipline, not violence or aggression). If your child likes musical programs, it might be worth investing in a karaoke machine or a music teacher to fine-tune his or her musical talent."

"A little imagination and correlative thinking will serve you well in discovering an activity that your child can get enthused over. (See the Suggested Activities sidebar on page 170 for ideas.) • Participate. If your child has struggled with ADD/ADHD for any amount of time, he or she may lack friends with whom to share new interests, activities, or hobbies. Your participation will do a lot in helping your child to develop a budding interest into a full-fledged passion or hobby."

"In fact, they can be accustomed to completing most tasks with determination and efficiency when they perceive that there is a clear structure to an activity. A recent five-year study conducted at Lehigh University, paid for by the National Institutes of Health, showed encouraging results. In the study, behavioral therapies that stressed consistent rules and routines, time limits for certain tasks, and more praise for good behavior than punishment for bad were applied to 135 preschoolers with severe ADD/ADHD."

"Different, Not Difficult Meditation is often thought of as an activity of the mind, some form of mental "doing." However, a mental activity does not easily lead to a state of stillness, and meditative practices that take this approach tend to be very difficult. True meditation is not difficult so much as different—completely different from the mental processes we are accustomed to. Most techniques aimed at stilling the mind are exercises in attention rather than exercises in thinking."
- Peter Russell, Waking Up In Time: Finding Inner Peace In Times of Accelerating Change (Get the book.)

"The doctor may add hyperactivity to the attention deficit diagnosis if the child often fidgets or squirms in his or her seat, runs or climbs in situations where such activity is inappropriate, has difficulty playing quietly, or is often "on the go." Ten years ago, most children diagnosed with a mental illness were said to have an attention deficit disorder."

"When I studied the activity of the dung-eating scarab beetles, I found that different genera had peaks of activity at different times, both through the day and through the night. In these beetles, night activity is far greater than day activity, and this seems to be true for many other animal groups. It may well be that the world of the night in tropical rain forest is as rich in wideawake species as is the world of the day. It is only our own species' ingrained activity cycle that keeps us from documenting the evidence more fully. This is a world we find endlessly fascinating."

"You can complete the 30 or more minutes of activity all at once or accumulate that much over the course of the day. Your activity may be exercise, a sport, housework, walking your dog, dancing, or just climbing stairs. The key is to move it if you want to lose it (weight), and gain it (health). Combine your aerobic activity with resistance training (weight lifting). Resistance exercise—such as lifting weights, pulling against elastic bands, or doing circuit training—builds muscle. Each pound of muscle you build through weight training burns roughly 30 to 50 calories a day, every day."

"Most doctors had come to believe that almost all kids with ADHD had a deficiency of dopamine activity, and that when it was boosted, the children would feel happier, would be better able to control themselves, and would have longer attention spans. It seemed paradoxical that a stimulant could not only help calm down hyperactive children, but also wake up inattentive children, but that's how the drug seemed to work-most of the time. In about 30 percent of all kids, though, Ritalin did not seem to work well at all. • It made some hyperactive kids even more hyper."

"A doctor could help you determine your specific needs, but here are some examples: If a 55-year-old woman who is 5'5" tall and weighs 135 pounds does four hours of very light activity, like reading or driving, and 30 minutes of light activity, like sweeping or walking, she would need 1,705 calories a day to maintain her current weight. If a 55-year-old man who is 5'10" tall and weighs 155 pounds does four hours of very light activity and 30 minutes of light activity, he would need 1,975 calories to maintain his current weight."

"Be careful, though, to avoid any overly strenuous activity, especially as your pregnancy progresses. Don't overdo it. Consider a prenatal yoga class to help you stay fit and manage stress during pregnancy. You can look for a prenatal class in your area or try a video at home (www.gaiam.com has a good selection). I also recommend taking regular walks during pregnancy; it's a great low-impact way to get more oxygen to your baby. If you'd like more tips on staying fit throughout your pregnancy, check out Fit Pregnancy magazine."

"And that's your entire activity for the week." This situation must change. Our school years should be among the most active of our lives. Children, when left to their own devices, are in constant motion. Confining them to chairs and desks all day is unnatural, and it's also harmful. We're seeing the terrible effect this sedentary lifestyle is having on the increasing numbers of overweight kids all over the country. So if your children's school doesn't provide them with an outlet to move around and exercise, you need to make sure they get that outlet at home. Dr."

"Practice preparing simple, delicious dishes together—make cooking a fun family activity, not a chore. Discuss the importance of drinking lots of water and avoiding fried foods. From their earliest years, equip your kids with the information necessary to make wise dietary decisions. When you go out to dinner, avoid the items on the kids' menu, which tend to be the most toxic. Instead, focus on salads and fresh vegetables. And whether at home or in a restaurant, both you and your kids should have fresh fruit as dessert."

"Zinc (50 to 60 mg/day), saw palmetto (160 to 320 mg/day), and progesterone (200 mg/day, cycled with your cycle) all help to limit androstanedione levels by reducing reductase activity. Avoiding or limiting foods and drugs that are a burden on the liver will also help. This means reducing your intake of alcohol, caffeine, hormones taken by mouth, and most prescription medications. Exercise also helps, particularly brisk aerobic activities. Lower your DHEA dose, say to 2 to 5 mg per day, and pulse it in."

"Antibiotics alter the bacteria in the gut and increase the likelihood of high glucuronidase activity. A Finnish study observed 10,000 women who took antibiotics chronically for recurrent urine infections and found that they had a 74 percent increased risk of breast cancer. You can measure glucuronidase in your stool. How do you keep glucuronidase levels down? Your body produces calcium-d-glucarate to deactivate glucuronidase. Calcium-d-glucarate is also found in many fruits (particularly apples, oranges, and grapefruits) and vegetables (particularly cruciferous vegetables)."

"Proponents believe that removal of toxic metals, among other benefits, restores the ability of endothelial cells to produce the nitric oxide necessary for healthy arterial dilation and to fend off free radical activity. Toxic metals irreversibly damage enzyme systems and are associated with an increased risk of high blood pressure and plaque formation. Supporters feel that metal overload plays a key role in CVD, malignancy, and many other age-related chronic diseases."

"Compared to a control group of nonautistic children, the autistic kids registered very little activity in their mirror neurons when they observed photos of people who were making facial expressions of anger, fear, or happiness. This failure of mirror neurons has two fundamental effects. (1) It causes anxiety. It's frightening to have, in effect, everyone around you wearing blank, indifferent masks. You can't tell how they're reacting to you, and you can't predict what they're about to do. (2) It's an obstacle to love."

"But we also pay a lot of attention to the diastolic phase-filling the heart with blood-because that activity requires more energy. Without enough energy, your heart fibers get stuck and stiffen up. You get a stiff heart that can't relax. Doctors call this diastolic dysfunction. Half of heart failures occur because the heart can't relax. This is where the ATP comes in. It takes more ATP to relax the heart after contraction. This stiffness phenomenon is insidious. The problem brews for years. At first there are no signs of trouble. Then one day you notice something isn't right."

"The enzyme activity of probiotics has been found to help fight infectious disease, lactose intolerance, immune system deficiencies, and urogenital and vaginal diseases. Probiotics Produce Antimicrobial Effects Some probiotics have antimicrobial effects. Many of the probiotic strains of bacteria are able to produce substances that kill bacteria, called bacteriocins such as lactocidin, reuterin or acidophilin. These bacte-riocins have antimicrobial activities that reduce the growth of disease-causing microbes. To date, only some strains are known to to produce antimicrobial substances. L."

"The intestinal microflora has the metabolic activity potential equal to that of the liver, the most active organ in the body! As such, the microflora is sometimes referred to as the "forgotten organ." Be kind to your intestinal microbes as they contribute greatly to your metabolism. to your body's health. Probiotics affect many aspects of the body including nutrient digestion and absorption, immunity and much more. Probiotics aid digestion by completing the breakdown of food that was not fully digested."

"Lindsay Berkson writes in Hormone Deception that natural hormones are so potent they can produce very dramatic changes in cell activity with very small amounts, parts per billion or parts per trillion?a figure so minute that only extremely sensitive tests can measure them. Hormones like insulin are measured at the parts-per-trillion (ppt) level, the equivalent of putting one drop of water into a six-mile-long train with 660 tank cars. This should place the introduction of large amounts of insulin into the body in proper perspective."

"Negligible killer cell activity in AIDS patients leads to steady deterioration of their condition. Develops More Killer Cells Dr. Abdullah placed seven AIDS patients with subnormal killer cell activity on 12 weeks of Kyolic aged garlic extract supplementation. Six weeks later, five of the seven showed a dramatic rise in killer cell activity to normal range. After the 12th week, every patient showed normal range killer cell activity and a significant improvement in total immune system function."
