Energetic Aspects of ADHD in Children

adhd-children-energeticsLujan, I have a question about children who suffer from ADHD. What is your view of the problem that causes this on an energetic dynamic?

Also what can be done to help children by us on an energetic level?

Thank You
Philip

Firstly, diet must be approached intelligently. A gluten and dairy-free diet is generally recommended. This should include a lot of organic fruit and vegetable intake. No GMO’s or commercially-produced animal products, white sugar, sodas, chemical additives and preservatives.

No containers that will leach plastics into the diet. We are not capable of detoxifying these plastic chemicals. So when you buy take-out food in Styrofoam it is very dangerous, as one example.

Also you need to obtain chemical-free, organic dish-washing liquid, laundry detergent, natural soap, toothpaste etc.  No chemical cleaning products in the house including pesticides. You can easily substitute these with vinegar and Castile soap.

Buy organic clothing if possible, and in the very least avoid synthetic fibers like nylon and polyester. Studies have been done on animals over a two-year period that found that polyester altered their natural hormone levels and damaged the endocrine system.

Visual intake from television and computer games must be monitored to reduce negativity in terms of violence. The child must have an outdoor environment to ground themselves with bare feet and sunlight. As much physical contact as possible creates a nurturing environment for their personality to grow within. Under all circumstances the child must have a creative outlet that is of their interest.

In general we have too much external stimuli that is not natural. The radio waves from televisions, cell phones and computers are detrimental in large amounts. Energetically we are all very sensitive to these factors. It is just that over the last couple of hundred years we have learned not to believe that our body can read circumstances.

ADHD children are usually very intelligent and get bored easily. It is difficult for them to integrate into normal society because they feel the limitations imposed and naturally rebel against being domesticated.

These children have to be kept busy. They are natural leaders and their creativity is much higher than a normal child.

This is one reason why it is beneficial to change their diet to high-fruit and vegetables. This will allow the child not to be agitated by reducing acidosis within the body.

One of the most asked questions with a high fruit and vegetable diet is where the child is going to get their protein from. Protein can be obtained from the fruit and vegetables in sufficient amounts. What we have been programmed to believe about protein is wrong.

Young coconut shakes are a great idea for healthy fat and protein for children. The fat from the coconut is delivered straight to the mitochondria and supplies enormous amounts of energy for the brain and nervous system. You can add frozen banana and mango to the smoothie and make ice cream from it. It is actually more tasty than the ice cream you buy in the store. If you feed the body with more balanced foods then you feed the nervous system in the same way.

It would be best to find a school that allows the child to take their own meals so they are not forced to eat junk food.

One of the most crucial factors in the life of a child is the belief system of the people that surround them; e.g. the focus of their culture. They shouldn’t be boxed in with ideas that are limiting in terms of the attention put on them by adults in terms of the usual approach to managing children identified as being ADHD.

As far as energetics is concerned, the general populous’ intelligence has been reduced and this has led to external operatives gaining control through advertizing, which is a type of social programming. Once the person goes out of the general loop of this dilemma, they are faced with a stone-walled belief system from their peers. Our peers are not convinced that what is happening is bad for us in general.

In one generation the hormonal potency of men and woman has been reduced by half. Within another twenty-five years the generation that follows will be almost certainly sterile. We are facing the extinction of our species if we don’t change the direction we are heading in terms of toxicity that we are absorbing just from our own household in terms of the chemicals we accept as safe.

It is not just the ADHD syndrome that is the issue. This is just a symptom of our inability to cope with our unnatural environment that are our general circumstances that is very difficult to escape from.

So when you go to the supermarket and walk down the aisle that sells cleaning products, know that when you smell them you are ingesting them. This is our olfactory function. We naturally absorb and interpret our environment for survival and if we are programmed to see the chemicals that we are ingesting as safe we are generally being told that poisons are good for us.

If a hunter would go into the supermarket and say to someone buying chemical products that what they pick up is poisonous and will have a detrimental effect long-term, it may be snubbed. But if the very same people were put in the wild and a hunter/gatherer would say don’t eat these leaves; they are poisonous and will make you sick, then generally the people would listen. This situation comes down to a primal survival mode.

All of us have been conditioned to accept the unacceptable and our primal essence is being buried and grossly ignored because we are told that chemicals are clean. People don’t want to believe they are being told something is good for them when it is actually not. They want to feel safe, and their need to be safe is so strong that they will believe the corporations that sell these products through their advertizing, which is a very detrimental type of programming.

I would like everyone to consider, even washing your dishes you can be poisoning yourself through your skin very slowly. It won’t happen right away but it will happen eventually.

For example, when a person drinks diet soda, the chemical aspartame gets transported to the liver and chemically changed to methanol. This causes a myriad amount of sickness that can manifest as brain tumors and other neurological disorders. To remedy these modern illnesses one just has to stop drinking the soda and usually within a couple of weeks the malady has disappeared.

So I would caution everybody to question anything that is in a package. If it is not organic, what are you putting in your body. The question is do you want to be well in twenty years?

Remember illness can manifest as a mental dysfunction, which is socially acceptable. Many people are very rational but are not making any sense any more. So we all need to get back to our roots and the only way we can do this is demand that our environment and our food is cherished.

What I am saying here is don’t focus on our children being the sick ones. Focus on the fact that we’ve provided an unsafe environment for them. We can all change this by making positive choices and being informed about what is good and what is not good for us as a society.

We are like slaves that are programmed to buy products that aren’t useful. In other words we have to be educated beyond the rational premises that have been programmed into us by our educational system that is not taking all these factors into consideration in terms of what is really going on with our delicate consciousness that can be swayed via suggestions, instead of truth.

  1. ADHD is a large list of symptoms, not a ‘disease.’ Tease away at the list of symptoms and most of them match those for food and chemical sensitivities that cause neurological inflammation, environmental irritants that screw everything up, nutritional deficiencies, etc, as Lujan wrote about.

    We are incredibly blase about what is happening around us. Every single piece of plastic that has ever been produced is still floating around somewhere, all of it disrupting our internal and external biological health. That’s 90 years worth of plastic. Urgh.

    All that children need to thrive is to be healthy and happy. To be healthy they need healthy food and a healthy lifestyle, and to be happy they need safety and love from balanced adults. We now find ourselves in the ridiculous situation that these two simple things most children hardly ever get to have.

    I asked myself once, what would it take to change society to truly provide a great life for our children? I realized that everything had to change! Everything. Nothing that society does today helps children to be healthy and happy. Nada.

  2. plastic:
    i remember my mother showed me a video of a guy who reverse engineers plastic and turns it back into oil and fuel.

    lujan what kind of herbs do you take for supporting ur 3 treasures: jing, chi, shen on a daily basis?

    ive been craving astragalus root as if my life depended on it.
    also goji, he shou wu and ashwagandha.
    ginseng too although its like 75$/250g. so ginseng is out for now.

    ive been thinking of trying he shou wu. do you know about the differences between black bean he shou wu and raw?
    some say its more potent and rejuvinating when prepaired in the black bean method, but the cooking process bugs me. mainly because i fear it will lose potency and thus better to choose a different herb.

    Do You have any suggestions for a full spectrum herb (yin/yan jing, chi, shen)
    (you showed me the 8 immortals tincture- which i would love to use but its not right for me right now.)

    Thanks! :)

  3. Thanks for the comprehensive answer, Lujan. It’s an inspiration to stay on track. Luma, you’re right about being blasé; at least I know I can let this essential perspective slip away. Tyson, I hope someone answers your questions. I’ve never heard of any of most of the foods you mentioned, and I love making superfood smoothies. I’d love to learn more. Thanks. Jerry

  4. Thank you everyone! Very informative as always! Love!

  5. Oh yes! the irrationality behind the rational-washing is just crazy. i mean people believe that the food version of rewarding themselves is to eat something extra poisonous. great post. thankyou. love.

  6. Thank you for the question, Philip, and for your answer, Lujan.
    It helps me smell the right track.
    True care and love.
    Thanks.

    lol, never understood it myself.

    I did a quick google search and indeed we can now reverse engineer plastic back into oil! That would be great if the oceans and all plastic waste were cleaned up and the load of plastic turned to oil. Hopefully it doesnt pollute the air tho.

    • Thanks for the note on the three treasures, Tyson.

  8. To add to violence on television (and in computer games!), there is also the hyper speed at which things are portrayed. If the characters are not acting as if they have ADHD, there is at least an implied crisis, or if that fails, even the camera is moving. This frantic speed is also part of the new social programming. Note that there is hardly any counterpoint of some stillness on media. This too falls on parents and teachers who must find the time for it.

  9. Thank you for this lovely, all-encompassing post. It’s so saddening to see the programming all over the place. Many believe that clean is only on the outside, not inside their bodies, too. They tacitly believe it’s okay to spread pesticide around their yard, but will tell you that one berry will make you ill.

    The chemicals everywhere these days has accelerated the depletion of our kidney and adrenal life force. The common diet has weakened this organ and its gland, and now the commercial production of man-made products is delivering a blow. What looks like over-stimulation is actually the working of irritants that won’t allow for calm and ease.

    There is a way back, though.

    Thank you again for this beauty in words.

  10. I followed this thread with much interest and because I worked many years with young people, I thought I’d contribute.

    As an educator, I was one of those who was expected to “diagnose” or at least spot Attention Deficit Disorder.” Actually only a doctor could diagnose the condition but all he did was look at some rating scales the teachers and parents had filled out. Very subjective process.

    It was discouraging to work with so many children who displayed such odd sometimes inexplicable behaviors. I’m not just talking about ADD, but things like Autism, bipolar, depression, and more. We often wondered, as teachers, what was the curse that caused our young people to have serious processing deficits or mental problems at such a young age.

    Of course, as many of you have pointed out, I believed then and now that the chemicals we have poured into our water, food, and air are big culprits. The frantic pace of our lives certainly doesn’t help, and add to that irresponsible, unconscious parenting and you have the lethal recipe for sick kids.

    Yes, as a teacher, I reported cases of ADD or ADHD, (ADD w/ hyperactivity). I was responsible for teaching children the art of reading and writing and when I had a child in front of me who found it impossible to look at the written page, let alone look me in the eye, it was extremely frustrating. One thing I found very interesting, though, was that some of these kids could indeed listen, but had to be looking at something else for that to happen. What I mean is, I’d have a child in front of me who would twist in his/her chair, look at the corners of the room, out the window, at his/her feet, anywhere but at the teacher, yet when I would say, “Are you listening? He/She would reply Yes! And indeed they were. It was an odd case of only being able to activate the auditory channel if the visual channel was not engaged in the act of looking at the human who was talking. This is found especially in people on the autistic spectrum.

    Of course, other children had their auditory processing channels completely blocked and so retained almost nothing of what they heard unless it was repeated over and over, and usually this had to be one on one. You can imagine how difficult such a child would be to “teach.” Others had no since of metaphoric language, were so literal that it was debilitating to conversation and comprehension. Still others appeared to be emotionally deadened or at least detached. They were “in there,” it just took a huge effort for them to release any emotion.

    Many of these kids were extremely unhappy (though not all), and would therefore be depressed. Their hyperactivity and/or processing disorders made it difficult to form relationships with their peers, their academics were in the toilet, and so they simply felt terrible about themselves. It was really sad to see, and I must say, though I’m definitely not a fan of medicating kids, sometimes just the right medication could turn a child around. It was a painful choice to make, especially for many parents. It was hard to witness as a teacher.

    I do believe that there are deep systemic issues at work here, both in the environment of the home and the way schools are set up. Slowly schools are taking a look at the way these children need to be taught and stimulated. I know teachers take a bad rap, but I saw many empathic souls at work among these children, though of course, I saw a lot of ignorance too. Unfortunately, the bureaucracy of the school system is like any bureaucracy—it moves painfully slow.

    I also have to say, however, that in my years in public schools, I also came across many children who were/are so talented as to almost take my breath away. I was repeatedly blessed to know very young children who had the empathy and compassion of someone much older. Some of these children were extremely talented in many other areas as well: the language arts, math, the visual arts, and music, sometimes all at once. They got along well with their peers and seemed not reliant on or affected by peer pressure.

    These are the children of the future, I hope. These are the ones I try to think about when I look around me at the human race with its wars, and stupidity, failures and problems and when I think about what we as humans have done to our world and where we may be headed. Then I remember those children with so much potential and can only hope that their humanity is being fully realized.

    I like to think that those of us following Lujan and this path are not just the dreamers of a new age, but are hard at work forging the path to that new dawn. The next time you meet a child, pass them your spark. They are hard at work too.
