ADHD | ADD - Part 1 Understanding Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

John Gray

ADHD is a common behavioral disorder that affects an estimated 8% to 10% of school-age children. Boys are about three times more likely than girls to be diagnosed with it, though it's not yet understood why.

In this video, I suggest many natural solutions for helping children and adults with ADHD symptoms. Generally speaking, naturopath doctors suggest the dosage amounts below for children:
1 capsule Lithium Orotate 2 times a day (total 520mg a day)
1 capsule Grape Seed Extract 2 times a day (total 200mg a day)
1 capsule Vitamin C once a day (total 520mg a day)

John Gray’s Mars Venus Super Foods Shake once a day (men’s or women’s)
2 chewable Potential Vitamins in the morning

If you choose not to use the SuperFood Shake add the following:
1 L-Tyrosine 500 MG once a day (total 500mg a day)
1 N’Acetyl L-Cysteine (NAC) once a day (500mg a day)
1 5-HTP 50mg once a day (50mg a day)

These are amounts for the average child, 75-90 pounds. Cut dosage in half for children under 75 pounds. Double dosages for adults over 100 pounds.

Note: Children enjoy Vitamin C Plus Antioxidant Drink, you can use one scoop of this product in place of vitamin C capsule. The minimum dosages are listed above, if you do not see results in a couple of weeks double the Vitamin C and Grapeseed Extract dosage. If your diet lacks Omega 3, add 1 Vectomega Daily.

    Hi I am very interested in nutritional support for kids with attention and focus problems, including my kids. Can you please clarify the dosage? -at one point you say Grape Seed extract 2 capsules in the morning -- how many milligrams is each capsule? -also at one point you say "naturopath doctors suggest half the dosage amounts below for children" but then further down you say "these are the amounts for the average child, 75-90 pounds." Can you please clarify all the dosages so that the amount for kids is very clear? Many thanks....

    I am 55 years old and I have just been diagnosed with ADD. Just one of the new legions of women who are tired from too much to do? Absolutely not. A look back at my childhood report cards that call out my disruptiveness, lack of focus, and chronic underachievement at the prestigious all girls private school I attended K-12. I survived on smarts, a good memory, and last minute adrenaline to push me over the passing line. College was the same as again, I used my strategies to survive. Work, same thing. Now that menopause is upon me, it has gotten worse. Strategies aren't working so well. I have been on Adderall of four months and the difference is profound. If I can feel the same way with natural supplements, I am all for it. I went to a homeopath for years a decade or so back but I can no longer afford him. What I can remember is that as a child, I hated vegetables and ate very little of them. Food additives in the 1060s were not anywhere near what they are now. I loved candy. Now, I eat very well, with little to no additives, no corn syrup (very little sugar), no bread or pasta (very little grain at all). I eat mostly organic. Here's a rub: the suggested supplements are about $175/month. With my insurance, Adderall is $15.00/month. Comments to my comments?...

    I'd like to have my family start the ADD/ADHD plan. I'm just confused about specifically what to buy. For instance, the protocol listed under the video doesn't list all of the supplements that were recommended in the video. Also, there's a Potential vitamin and a Super Minerals vitamin that are each recomended although I think it's either or, and does this mean I need additional supplements depending on which one I get. Your Vitamin C isn't in 60 mg doses; it's 500 something Will I get a list of what and how often to take each when purchased. Is there a package plan?...
