This is the cure. I know because I did it for Cadee. She was 5 when I did it. She is 7 now. Please please tell other people. I went to the Kroger Store website. They have fruits in colors. Buy different colors because they have different vitamins. Mix the colors in little bowls. Make 6 of them for the week. It is easy to make them one time. I know a week is 7 days !!!. She has one bowl for breakfast. Fruit has good sugar too.
Then buy vegitables. Buy different colors. Put them in the big pot and mix them. Don't cook them very much so the vitamins don't go in the water very much.
Put them in bowls. She has one bowl for lunch. Put all of the rest of the bowls in the refrigerator.
Then buy Juicy Juice. Cadee likes it. You can buy anything that doesn't have ose sugar. If any words on juice label ends with ose don't buy it. It is because ose sugar gives them energy. Then the ose sugar drops too fast for them. Their brain has energy and body is tired but they don't know it. They go too fast for their brains !!!
The hardest part is retalin withdrawl. You have to stop retalin, and it is a bad drug to stop. For Cadee, it was two days. She was totally crazy for two days.
Cadee likes pancakes for breakfast on Saturday. She can but no ose sugar in anything put on pancakes. She can have candy on Saturday too. Cane sugar candy. No ose sugar candy. She doesn't have to have vegitable bowl on Saturday.
Cadee is honors at school and very good at obeying. Cadee wants to be nice. If you have someone who doesn't want to do obeying they wont. ↓

|Hello, Michelle I've read what you wrote and I would like to learn more.I do believe it is what we are feeding our kids that causes ADHA. I just joined this chat group and I don't know how this works.So if you'll leave me a message and tell what to do I'd love to talk to you about this.Thanks, Alicha ↑|

|Hi Alicha: I said most of it. It is fruit for breakfast, in different colors, so they have different vitamins. They are on the Kroger Food store webpage. We call breakfast eating colors, and she loves it. She likes a little sugar on it. Cadee can handle cane sugar. She goes crazy if she eats high frutose sugar or anything that ends in ose. The sugar level and energy level drops too fast, but her brain is still going a million miles and hour !!! Fruit has sugar in it too which she can handle.|
Lunch is vegitables only with Juicy Juice. She can have milk, or anything without ose sugar. She just loves Juicy Juice. It stays warm in the container, and the juicy juice stays cold in a thermos when school starts. Cadee has been going to public school, but this year she will be going to school on the base. She is very well behaved in school and at home. Her lowest grade was a B last year.
We have plenty of fruit around if she wants a snack. She will never have a weight problem !!!
Dinner is normal, meat or fish and 2 vegitables. There is a little in the meat that affects her so dessert is a banana. It has b12 to calm her down. It is a vitamin in the banana.
By far, the hardest part of the diet was drug withdrawl from Retalin. It looked like she was much more adhd, so she needed more drugs. It was really a side affect from the drug withdrawl.
The first thing that we noticed after several days is that she was able to get to sleep, and sleep all night. She got up one morning, put her clothes on, and was brushing her own hair when we went to get her up the second time. Usually the second time was a war because she was still asleep, and we had to make her get up, help her dress, and get her ready for the day.
I hope that this helps you. If you have any more questions please ask. I wrote it to help others. ↑

|This is the timetable for Cadee when we changed her food.|
I started giving her quality food on Monday. There wasn't much difference.
Tuesday she started her withdrawl from drugs. She was worse than she had ever been. She went to class and opened and closed all of the windows. She threw things. The school called me, and I brought her home. The lesson for this is to start the drug withdrawl on a weekend !!!
Wednesday was even worse. We made a room safe for her. We watched her and let her run. She was out of our control, and that is the only thing that we could do.
Thursday was the same as Wednesday. She didn't care about anybody but herself.
Friday was a little better. There were brief periods of time when she would be nice to me, and talk. It didn't happen very often.
Saturday we altered the diet. She had pancakes with nothing on top with ose sugar. She had no ose candy that I made. I made it with cane sugar. She had fish and a vegitable for lunch. Dinner was tuna we cooked on a grill. We gave her two vegitables and a banana for dessert. She was really tired on Saturday.
Sunday, we went to church. She had a little problem behaving but not as much as before. Her Sunday school teacher said that she was out of control two times in the 50 minute Sunday school class.
Monday, Cadee went to school. She disrupted the class several times.
Tuesday, I woke Cadee up for school. I went back to fix breakfast to give her time to get up. I went back expecting her to be still asleep, and the usual morning war to get her up, and dressed for school. She wasn't in her room so I called her. She walked out of the bathroom and wanted help to get a knot out of her hair. She had put all of her clothes on by herself. She gave everybody hugs at breakfast and said I love you. To say the least, we were more than shocked.
Cadee has had two episodes of ADHD in the last two years. She drank drinks with high fructose corn sugar. Other than that Cadee is great. She likes to help us and learn. We can hold her now !!! She loves to ride horses on an island near here. We can take her to shows and she likes them. She can sit for the shows. She does like audience participation shows. Her favorite is Dixie Stampede. However, she can sit though and enjoy the Carolina Opry which has no audience participation. ↑

|You are right. They changed their website and it isn't included.|
I am going to the local store in the next couple of days. I will find it. Ours is on the refrigerator. ↑

|I asked Kroger to find the circle graph of the fruits. Basically, different fruits have different vitamins. Buy different colors of fruit and mix the colors for breakfast. It is the same with vegitables which Cadee has for lunch. ↑|

|Hey, don't know if this is the right chatroom but oh well... im 16 i i have adhd, known about it for a few weeks now, im geting no help from home, my parents didnt believe me at first and now theyr ignoring me pretty much... my brother gets all the attention because he's 'less able' and he does worse at school so they focus on him (he has dyspraxia) but still my cries go unanswered... BUT i dont think diet has anything to do with my problems, i read somwhere that 75% of cases are genetic anyway, meaning someone else in the family has something similair enough probably; i also have a fine diet, better than most people's i know, BUT i also think that this medicine stuff sounds a bit dodgy and im wondering how much of this is corporations playing on those of us in distress... but thats my take on it anyway, although im looking for first hand experience on dealing with adhd, becuase ive googled it for months and medication is the only answer im finding, but i've heard of other ways but nowhere can i see these actually pinned down... i just need someone who's been through this sort of thing themselves and if they can tell me how they coped i'd be very grateful, because im finding it harder to concentrate on the task at hand than i used to and my grades are going to suffer soon, besides the fact the whole thing makes life harder... oh well, supposedly ADHD is a gift.. some hunter/gatherer trait... anyway any help appreciated! ↑|

|My guardian cured my ADHD through diet. I cured Cadee's ADHD with the same diet. So, we have both been through ADHD. I wrote almost exactly what we did. Do you eat or drink anything ending in ose? You can find it on the label of your food packages. For example, look on the back of the package or bottle and find out if anything it ends on ose, for example, high fructose corn sugar (fructose ends in ose). Let me know. That is what makes Cadee ADHD the most. If you are then try not drinking or eating anything with the letters, or has the letters ose on the label Let me know the contrast. For the diet to work you have to drug free so if you have started any drugs then it won't work. I hope that this helps. ↑|

|It was actually passed down for generations in my guardian's family. Long before there adhd drugs, the symptoms of adhd were considered to be a food allergy at least where his ancestors lived. It has been working for generations. ↑|

|It makes since. I will try anything at this point. I have to deal with tantrums, my 7 year old will not go to sleep until she is totally exhausted, and then wont get up in the morning. The simpliest things are battles. ↑|

|I tried it. I know what you mean about the drug withdrawl. It was to say the least a horrible experience. My son is 9 and had been on drugs since he was 4. That might have added to the difficulty. I was cooking dinner today, and my son asked if he could help. My husband asked humorously if this really our child? Thank you for sharing your experience. It has been a blessing to our family. ↑|

|I wanted to thank you. I made significant changes to my son's food. Today, we thru away his retalin. He has been fine for 2 weeks so I don't think that we will be giving in to him anymore ↑|

|I logged on to the grocery store web site , but was unable to find where there is a color choice , could you please email with what link you have for it.|
thank you [email protected] ↑

|The color diagram is no longer available at Kroger stores. Different colored fruit has different vitamins. Simply purchase different colors of fruit. I make 7 bowls of fruit for Cadee. She eats one every day. I cut the fruit and mix them. Each bowl has assorted colors. She can have cane sugar on the fruit. I always read everything on the label. High fructose corn sugar makes her adhd, as well as anything with ose on the label. ↑|

|michelle, i am very interested in trying this. Do you give Cadee any other supplements like fish oil, or childrens vitamins. What is some examples of fruits and vegetables you feed her. ↑|
|Name: Michelle | Date: Dec 22nd, 2007 5:22 AM
|I am sorry that it took so long to get back with you. Cadee doesn't take any vitamin supplements. Fruits and vegitables are packed with vitamins. Her school does the "hair test", and they inform us if she has any vitamin problems. Her last test showed that she was normal for all vitamins.|
Over the last 2 years we have probably purchased every fruit and vegitable in our grocery store. The important thing to remember is that different colored fruits and vegitables have different vitamins. We simply purchase different colors of fruits and vegitables and mix them. Cadee has assorted colored fruits for breakfast, and assorted colored vegitables in a tripod dish that we prepare for her, at school or at home. Cadee really likes it. She likes the colors, and since they are mixed, every bite tastes different. ↑

|You were right about the first week being very difficult. When we took our 6 year old off drugs, the adhd was much worse. She stayed that way even with the fruits and veg. The ninth day was really unusual. She was very tired all day. The 10th day she was the most well behaved child in the world. She had plenty of energy, and we actually had an intelligent conversation.|
I see the change everyday, and I still can't believe it. It is like having a new child. ↑
|Name: Lexi | Date: Feb 10th, 2008 3:45 AM
|Actually, I already knew that adhd was caused by food allergies. I cured my son a long time ago just like you did. I thought that you might want to know that a recent study linked lack of iodine in the mother during pregnancy with ADHD. The experts are finally finding out what we have known for a long time. I enjoyed reading about you and Cadee. Keep up the good work !!! ↑|

|My 8 year old was impossible to live with. We were fortunate to be able to afford an expensive private school for him. They found that he had a food alergy. If I had read your article we could have save a lot of money !!! ↑|

|Did you take Cadee off of drugs cold turkey, or did you gradually reduce them? ↑|
|Name: Michelle | Date: Apr 27th, 2008 5:25 AM
|We took Cadee off of drugs immediately. We looked at the side effects and determined that drugs were not good for her. We decided that good food for her was the best option. She hasn't had any ADHD symptoms for a long time. ↑|

|I want to thank you for your post. I am a single father. Jacob is off of drugs too. I alway thought that drugs were bad for him, however, I didn't have any other solutions to his behavior. You provide that. I think that drugs are more for lazy parents than the welfare of children. Jacob's withdrawl from drugs was difficult, however, he is a loving child now. He is helpful and said for the first time that he loves me, and he wasn't on drugs when he said it. Thank you so much for your post. ↑|

|We learned the same thing from our daughter's school. I don't think that giving drugs to children is because their parent's are lazy. I think that it is because they can't afford the best schools. I was taught excellent morals when I was growing up. Therefore, I married well We were able to afford an excellent private school that taught us to do the same thing that you did with your daughter. ↑|
