Aspartame breaks down into aspartic acid, an amino acid and excitatory neurotransmitter (much like glutamate).

The Duffy genes, located on chromosome one at position 1922-23, have recently been cloned and sequenced. The difference between Fya and Fyb is a change in the amino acid at position 43 from aspartic acid (Fya) to glycine (Fyb).

I've been wondering whether there's a difference between "zoning out" and Petit mal seizures, and how can you tell the difference without an EEG?


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

You don't twitch so much with a petit mal seizure.  You just sit perfectly still for a minute, and then when you "wake up", you don't realize any time has passed.  I think.

What age can somebody be diagnosed with ADD?  My doctor said my youngest son's kindergarten teacher will probably catch it if he has it, but he's not in kindergarten yet and if he has ADD he may be better off with homeschool?  I guess we can see how it goes.  I sometimes think he's not listening only to find out he didn't miss a thing, so I can't tell.  He has trouble finding things when I tell him where they are and would get lost very easily if I let him wander by himself...but perhaps his older brother was just very good at those so it's just a comparison thing and I only have two to compare.

Your school district might have a screening program for pre-school-age children.  If not, they might refer you to a birth-to-three program in your community.  You might find out more from this website, which is meant more for screening for autism: http://www.firstsigns.org/
Frankly, your doctor doesn't sound very helpful.

My step-sister's toddler has those.  He's there but not there, you know.  Then he snaps out of it, and gets very tired and has to sleep it off.

It makes me wonder how inter-related seizures and migraines are.  Even more, I just learned about an anti-convulsant called Topamax that is also used to prevent migraines.  I'm looking into it now for myself!

Interesting that your partner has a similiar blood type to you including the Duffy type. I have just put my Duffy type in the signature line

I discovered a book called The Explosive Child By Ross W. Green. It is fantastic. These children do not respond to dicipline and rewards like other children do. Been trying some of the tecninques on my son. I am having good results with it. Cant wait to finish the book.


Wait- some kids DO respond to discipine and rewards?

Maybe that's my problem with DS. He's "normal" and I have no experience with that!

1-2-3 Magic can work with most "normal" kids.  "Normal" = Neurotypical.

Hi Ribbit

Have been reading your threads here and being a fellow A+ Warrior find lots of similarities.  In particular the feeling Sound Waves.  Have had a year full of earthquakes the past 12 months and it has been quite something to process.  Do you know what your parents blood types are/were.  Are a product of O and AB one of them a negative.  Not sure which one.  This must make for some pretty interesting chemistry.

So O's are the most vulnerable to ADD, followed by A's?

That's also the breakdown of how common each blood type is. It  could be that all types are equally vulnerable.

YES BTD : The way to avoid the condition.. or lessen it to near gone..

Yes: also cut out all smoke from her life..  maybe even from the gene pool from which children come from .. like if moms or dads that smoked before getting pregnant or in grand parents.. it might be the 'precondition' that then allows ADD ADHD to develop..  


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

flax oil and avoiding transfats is supposed to help.

as well as the obvious avoiding sugar, additives, aspartame.

My mom smoked alot when she was pregnant with me, and part from the Dyslexia it stunted my growth!

I should have been 7'2"!  

Just kidding!  It is more likely in an Explorer-centric pregnancy that the placenta being busy detoxifying the smoke, would push the "rough environment survival mode" slider on high.

Hello everyone,

This is my first post. This tread just stuck-out at me so I couldn't resist.  
At the age of 7 I was diagnosed with ADD.  I'm not so sure they (the doctors) really know anything about it then.  They said I had Tourettes syndrome.  I gradually grew out of it but it still remains in a form of ADD.  I recently discovered a connection with my problem and artificial colors.  It really flares up when I eat anything with it.  This got me searching and soon I found Dr. D's book.     It is such a good read!  I'm excited and I've already started changing what I eat.

Have a blessed day!

Josh
