Hi! I have been taking Adderall for about 2 years now for ADHD mostly inattentive type and while I'm not looking to get off of it right now (I'm student teaching and I just can't risk not being able to focus - watching kids and all). I went... (more)
I am dealing with pretty debilitating ADD symptoms. I am basically illiterate because I cannot focus long enough to read things I need to read, and holding conversations is difficult too. Unless I am intensely interested in a topic, I tune out... (more)
I recently received an email from a Paleohacker with ADD who asked me to summarize what I've learned/discovered so far as a paleo with ADD. My response is below. The goal of this post is to get critical feedback and suggestions from others with... (more)
Some preliminary studies have connected AD disorders to food additives in children, but I would be curious to know if any of you have tried eliminating seasonings/spices and if it's had any effect. I have been noticing lately that when I eat spicy... (more)
I??m diagnosed with ADD and have been eating Paleo the last few months, and have been gluten free for about a year. Paleo was what made the big change really. When I cut out almost all carbs and all sugar (and increased fat intake), I really... (more)

I stopped life long crushing depression by doing an autoimmune version of the paleo diet (back/neck pain largely went away as well). I also more then cut in half my generalized anxiety (both along w/ADD diagnosed at Amen Clinic). However, my ADD... (more)
Hello PaleoHacks World! Another question! My husband has been having a really hard time with ADD like issues lately (very bad considering he owns his own business and time is money!!). While he has never been officially diagnosed with ADD- I... (more)
Concerta is a stimulant like ritalin for focus but last for 12 hours as opposed to 4 hours. I do have ADD which has gotten a tad better but its still a nuisance. I have been use stratera which was working but is not as effective as it once was. I... (more)
Hi all, I was diagnosed with ADHD in 7th grade. I'm currently a senior in college. I've taken three different kinds of medicine, Vyvanse being the most effective, and the one I took from my junior year of high school until the end of my... (more)
It's common for people to become paleo in response to pre-existing conditions or previous metabolic damage. I wonder if the fact that I had spinal meningitis when I was 9 months old helps explain my attraction to the paleo lifestyle. One of the... (more)
