38 - 3 Ways to Naturally Reduce ADHD Symptoms with Dana Kay
Tips to Help You NOT Blame Your Child with ADHD

In this episode of the Soaring Child podcast, we go back to the basics. I remember years ago when my son was really struggling with ADHD, feeling so overwhelmed, not knowing what to do or whom to trust. There was so much information out there about how to best support a child with ADHD that I didn’t know where to start and what was going to be the most effective.

In this episode, I will give you a clear direction of how to start the year right with a tried and tested method that not only worked for my son, but also worked for nearly 1000 other families I have personally worked with. I don’t want you to waste your time  or your money on things that might not work.

Listen in to discover three specific strategies to put into practice today to start seeing improvements in the ADHD behavior and symptoms of your child.

Memorable Quotes:

“Get rid of the top inflammatory foods, namely gluten, dairy, and soy.”

“Gluten is so inflammatory that I suggest everyone, even those without ADHD or a known gluten intolerance, stop eating it. Plain and simple, gluten is harmful for everyone.”

“When we removed gluten from my son’s diet, he became a completely different child. Calm. Focused. Able to sit still.”

“Many parents overlook the importance of blood sugar management because they think of it in connection with diabetes, not ADHD. But blood sugar management is important for all of us, whether we have diabetes or not.”

“Did you know there are chemicals allowed into food in the United States that are banned either partially or entirely in other countries?”

“EVERYONE is negatively affected by artificial colors. They are bad for all of us, a general public health concern!”

“Companies actually use different formulas for American consumers than for those outside the USA. In Britain, food is made with real ingredients. Actual food! But in America, chemicals are added to food, with no warning label at all! This needs to change! Consumers in America should be offered the same ingredients as those outside of the USA, rather than their chemical counterparts.”

“It’s not just about what you TAKE OUT of the diet but also about what you put in.”
