    Theory, which may explain copper toxicity/deficiency/low cerruloplasmin

    I have been studying the topic of copper for a long time. I previously linked copper toxicity to my, ADHD(ADHD and copper toxicity). But I also have low cerruloplasmin and copper deficiency symptoms such as fatigue and balance problems. I intuitively understood that a person can be toxic and...

    Even mainstream medicine admits many claims about sugar are myths

    It is always nice to see when a outpost of mainstream medicine tries to set the record straight on something as controversial as refined sugar. My personal favorites are the myths on sugar and causal links to diabetes / cancer. Apparently, there is solid evidence those links are myths. Yet...

    ADHD and copper toxicity

    The puzzle begins to take shape. As I wrote in the thread,High salt intake caused metabolic acidosis, I assume that ADHD may be a simple dopamine deficiency. As you can see from the diagram below, vitamin B6 is essential for the synthesis of dopamine. Haidut previously published a study in...

    The study is not interventional, so too early to say if vitamin D supplementation will help ADHD. However, the link seems promising given the role of vitamin D in dopamine synthesis, which is though to be low in ADHD. [Full text] Vitamin D and vitamin D receptor levels in children with...

    Hepatitis B Vaccine In Infants Linked To Subsequent ADHD

    The study only looked at the older version of the HepB vaccine, which contained thimerosal. So, it would be interesting to see a study on the newer vaccine, which uses "only" aluminium as adjuvant. I bet the effects won't be much different as aluminium is just as toxic to the nervous system. A...

    Paternal Use Of SSRI Increase Risk For ADHD In His Children

    By now even the general public has gotten a wind of just how bad the SSRI drugs are. But most of the studies demonstrating negative effects from SSRI use are focused on the health of the patient taking them or the health of the baby whose mother is taking SSRI while pregnant or during...

    ADHD may be simply a vitamin B6 deficiency symptom

    The study claims that multi-year adminstration of vitamin B6 completely "normalized" ADHD symptoms. It was a human study, so it should have even more weight / relevance. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24321736 "...The disturbed activity of PLP dependent enzymes apparently forms those...

    Histamine And His Role In Sleep/wake And AD(H)D

    Wow, I've been studying histamine for some time, and it's quite interesting, but so hard ! Please correct me if I'm wrong, I'm kind of noob with biology and pubmed, and I'm sure I make mistakes all the time. Histamine in the hypothalamus seems to have some role in regulating sleep wake cycles...
