Heavy Metals Could Be the Root of ADD/ADHD Diagnosis

[fa icon="calendar'] Aug 20, 2020 6:57:16 PM / by Winter Ninivaggi


A diagnosis of ADD/ADHD can have a parent desperately searching for the best and safest way to treat their child. The medication being offered for children with ADD/ADHD not only has multiple known risk factors, but the long term effects are still not exactly clear. This is a scary thought when it is your child who will be receiving this medication.

Although you do not want your child suffering with attention deficit disorder, you also do not want them to be a zombie and consuming harsh medications. Your child ends up on a cycle of stimulants during the day and sleeping pills at night.

As a parent you will take any measure to help your child, but what if there was a safe and natural way to correct the issue?

Studies have also linked childhood attention deficit disorders with an increased likelihood of obesity in adulthood. So why not start them on a healthy track that will not only help their condition but lead them on a path of healthy diet and exercise into adulthood?

At Second Nature Care we offer non-invasive testing along with safe and natural treatments for ADHD. We correct gut imbalances, provide dietary strategies, and use homeopathic formulas to calm your child's central nervous system.

For adults, we offer I.V. ozone chelation, glutathione pushes, blood and urine testing (blood labs are covered by insurance). 

The biggest biochemical links to ADD and ADHD are elevated lead, food allergies and methylation differences.  We test for immediate food allergies, hidden food sensitivities, heavy metals and several genetic enzymes. 

With school around the corner, it is the perfect time to try out a new approach to understanding and managing your child's ADD/ADHD.

Help your child to live a healthy happy life. Take them off the harmful stimulants and lets work together to control their ADHD!
