ADHD in Kids Linked to Chemicals in the Home

//ADHD in Kids Linked to Chemicals in the Home
The main reason I got involved with Shaklee was to get my oldest (7 years old) off a lot of the medication he was taking to control his Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD), Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) and Depression.

I wanted to start him on a good program of supplements and Shaklee had just that!!  It has helped tremendously!!!


We still have our days, but he is doing much better, and now I am demanding (not asking) the psychiatrist to start taking him off the medication dosages.  This will be a gradual thing, their little bodies don’t adjust to things like ours do.


I also started to learn about the effects of chemicals (not the harsh stuff you would normally think of, but everyday things!!) on our little people.


They noticed that having a “normal” child exposed (just an open cleaning product container in the same room) can cause “false” symptoms or exaggerated symptoms of Dyslexia (where they write a lot of letters backward and have difficulty reading), ADHD, ODD , Allergies, Sicknesses…….


Take the chemical out of the picture and the child is able to function “normally” again!!!!!


Our little ones are bombarded by this stuff on a daily basis!!!   In the schools, they use VERY harsh chemicals.  In your homes, laundry soap stays in the fabric, cleaning chemicals under the sink give off fumes in the air (remember the smell of the cleaning isle in the store!!), there are chemicals on and in our food, and the list goes on and on!!!!


I wanted to get “as much as possible” out of my son’s environment. . . so we went completely Shaklee!!!  BIG difference!!!!


After we cleared out the chemicals and started to clean and launder in Shaklee, his rash on his face cleared, all of our sinus infections cleared up, my husband now comments on the smell of homemade bread. . . and best of all my son has calmed down a great deal!!!


If you can, get as many if not all of the chemicals out of your children’s (and your, for that matter) environment.  I’m sure you will all be healthier and happier for it!!!  I know we are!!!

Then after your system has had a chance to get use to being “less chemically dependent,” pay close attention to how your children (especially the ones who are normally really very active)  behave when they get anywhere near a cleaning isle in a store!!!  My son was uncontrollable after just passing by the cleaning isle at Wal-Mart one day!!  No joke!!
Take Care, and keep healthy !!!!
