Here is a simple protocol for healing ADD and ADHD. We have lots of children and adults who have difficulties focusing and this plays havoc with their lives and in the end they feel disconnected from society. But here are a few things that will change all of that in a few short weeks.
TV and Computers
First of all it’s been shown that sitting in front of the TV, computers, and our personal pads and smartphones causes anxiety, stress, and our inability to focus. We need to limit or completely disconnect from all of these electronic devices. Some people are very sensitive to the radiation and bright light that they give off, thus they over stimulate our mind and we are not able to focus. In fact all these electronic devices have been show to cause insomnia, and a new study shows that cell phones cause brain tumors… another reason to disconnect.
Diet is Very Important
Also diet is extremely important, there have been many cases where mothers have taken their children off all artificial colors, sweeteners, preservatives, pesticides, and GMO Foods and their ADD disappeared. What we eat does make a difference in the quality of attention that we have, in fact everything we have contact with makes a huge difference.
Water is important our brain is composed of lots of water, and that means we need at least 8 to 10 glasses of water a day or a 1/2 liter in the morning and 1/2 liter in the afternoon and more. Drink Reverse Osmosis Water, reverse osmosis water filters can be found at any home repair center. It’s the best water, even kidney doctors recommend reverse osmosis water for their patients. Most water contains lots of toxins, so good clean water is very important for healing ADD. And water in plastic bottles is toxic, there are over 24,000 different toxic chemicals in plastic, drink water from stainless steel, ceramic, and glass containers.
Have breakfast in the morning before 8AM with 1 1/2 cups of fruit, and 1/2 cup of almond milk or nut milk of any kind… and 1/2 cup of raw rolled oats. Good old old fashioned oats or hemp seeds, but don’t cook it, eat it raw and use honey, stevia, or agave nectar or some other natural sweetener, no chemicals please.
Use any kind of fruit – papaya, apples, mangos, berries, strawberries, all raw because raw foods are full of live enzymes which are important for our brain. When we cook food we lose up to 75% of the nutrients and 100% of all live enzymes… eat at least 80 to 90% raw food. Have a green salad for lunch, with lots of raw veggies. Cooked food is seen by the body as an invader and it’s hard on our immune system, and it’s not good for our mental health. In between meals eat organic carrot sticks, any other veggie, and fruit of any kind as snacks – eat 4 snacks a day at 10AM, 2PM, 4PM, and 7PM. That’s 1/2 cup of any of fruit or veggie.
Have dinner have a hot meal around 5 or 6 PM. Make a very healing soup from broccoli, cabbage, kale, swiss chard, turnip greens, been greens, and any other greens, and add spices, no salt or very little salt, and use low sodium veggie stock. Add 4 cups of beans, such as pink beans, garbanzos, or lentils… beans are great. Don’t use canned beans, canned beans are toxic with lots of chemicals in linings of the cans which are toxic to our mental health.
Remove the following items. No meat, no chicken, no fish, no seafood, no eggs, no cheese, no milk, no added oils, no canned foods, no artificial flavors, no artificial sweeteners, no sugar, no artificial anything, no chemicals of any kind, chemicals destroy our mind. Also no alcohol, no highly spiced food, and use very little salt, no fast food, no processed food, if in doubt don’t eat it. Plus no wheat, no bread, no barley, no spelt, no rye – all of these are highly inflammatory and they can cause mental challenges. And GMO Foods are highly inflammatory, eat organic, organic foods are not full of toxic compounds, they are full of great nutrition. For more protein eat organic tofu, beans, nuts, seeds, all organic. Remember we only need 5 or 6 % plant based protein and that’s exactly what we get on this diet.
Alkalizing and Antioxidants
Alkalizing the body and providing the body with lots of antioxidants is very important. And one of the best ways to provide the body with both of these is with green juices. Drink at least 2 and up to 6 – 8 oz glasses of green alkalizing juice every day – Kale, Cabbage, Cucumbers, Swiss Chard, Lots of Carrots, Turnip Greens, Beet Greens, and any other kind of green leafy veggie that can be found. Alkalizing keeps inflammation away and inflammation can lead to all kinds of disease and even mental health challenges. Also include carrots, carrots are amazingly healthy and contain powerful healing nutrients.
Take antioxidant supplements such as avocado seed powder, ashitaba powder, grape seed extract, fresh garlic, turmeric powder, and ginger tea. All of these antioxidants are important for keeping inflammation away and creating health and well being for our mind/body. Also take 3,000 milligrams of Chlorella everyday, chlorella can be found in 1,000 mg tablets, or small 200 milligram tablets. Chlorella is a green algae that contains over 60 different nutrients including all the trace minerals, vitamins, essential proteins, and none essential proteins that we need. Chlorella has everything important for our brain and body.
Our Brain Needs Rest
Our brain needs rest, get up at 6 AM and go to bed go10 PM. We have two little cells that flash on and off every second in every organ of our body and especially our heart. And they know when we should be sleeping and when we should wake up and get moving… it’s vital for a healthy focused mind to work in accordance with nature.
First thing in the morning after going to the bathroom sit down and concentrate on breathing – breathing in and out, if you find a thought coming into your head, say to yourself “I’ll get back to that later” and again concentrate on breathing. Do this for 45 minutes in the morning and 45 minutes in the evening, this gives the mind a rest. Even during sleep our mind is not resting, it’s dreaming, it’s working things out, it never rests. Meditation turns off the mind for a little while and allows our brain to recoup so we can focus.

Nature is Great for the Brain
It’s also important to get outside in nature one hour a day. It was found that children who were out in nature on a regular basis did not have as many health and emotional challenges as those who were always stuck in the house. There is a different vibrational frequency when we are out in the woods, near a lake, or by the ocean. And all those negative ions we pick up from nature are very important for preventing ADD and ADHD.
From a Spiritual Point of View
Silently saying a personal name of God over and over again thousands of times each day is important. Whenever the mind is not busy doing something say the name of God. Use a name like Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, or something else, a name other than just the word God. The name of God is powerful, and it needs to be said constantly for at least 6 months… and soon great healing will take place.
Within a few weeks using this protocol things will change, the mind will calm down, peace will settle in, and true focus will start to be the norm.
Many Blessings to Everyone!
