Your Brain Really is Different When You Develop ADHD or ADD

MonOct22CI.jpgIN YOUR DAILY DOSE: today is research demonstrating real differences in five regions of the brain in people who suffer from this condition.

MAKING CHANGES: Nothing here today, keep moving . . .

FACT OR FICTION: Reader’s Digest aptly named a column in their magazine many years ago. Although it was just a title, it turns out that it was rather prophetic.


In The News

The largest imaging study of brain disorders was published in The Lancet, demonstrating there are five areas of the brain with distinct differences in people who have ADHD. These differences were more distinct in children than in adults.


More than 3,200 people participating in the study that proves ADHD is triggered by brain structure changes and not psychological problems or poor parenting. Previous studies linked brain volume with the disorder, which this study also confirmed. The researchers believe the results of the study suggest those with ADHD have areas of the brain that develop more slowly.




Daily Health Tip

There are several environmental toxins that affect the developing brain and nervous system of children as they are developing inside their mother and in the months following birth. Carefully manage your exposure to toxins, and the exposure of your children - including cleaning supplies, fragrances, diesel fumes, car exhaust, pesticides, and GMO foods.


Daily Affirmation

I am ready for a life-altering move.
I am looking forward to changing my life with a big move. I am prepared for the implications of this move and the long-term impact.

Fact or Fiction?

Reader’s Digest had it right all those years they ran their “Laughter is the Best Medicine” column. Laughing does more than just make you feel good.  It can lower your blood pressure, reduce your levels of cortisol (stress hormone), fun exercise for your abs, improves your cardiac health, boosts your T-cells that supports your immune system, and triggers the release of endorphins or painkillers in your body. So, the next time you pass up a good comedy show, think twice - laughter really is good medicine.

Have a wonderful day!
