Probiotic Prevents ADHD and Autism


Right now in America more than 6 million children carry a diagnosis of ADHD. I think it is fair to say that autism has become an epidemic when you consider that, today, as many as 1 in 40 male births will ultimately be diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum.

So aside from hoping that effective treatments will be developed, there’s no question that we have to wonder what may be causing these issues, and if that can be determined, what can be done to fix the problem. One thing that has been clearly supported in research is a relationship between what goes on in the gut and the development of neuropsychiatric disorders like these mentioned here. Bowel issues are common in ADHD and are seen almost universally in autistic children.

Certainly, front and center in research these days>>>

The Real RDA for Vitamin D Is 10 Times Higher Than Currently Recommended

May 10, 2015
 By Dr. Mercola
Without a doubt, one of the most important nutrients for optimal health is vitamin D. But questions still remain about just how much is needed. Dr. Robert Heaney M.D., is one of the premier vitamin D researchers in the world.

He's also the research director of GrassrootsHealth, headed by Carole Baggerly, which is compiling data from a number of population-based studies like the D*Action project, which many of my readers are participants in.

What is clear is that the recommended dietary allowance (RDA) should really be 10 to 15 times what the Institute of Medicine (IOM) recommends.

Trained as a clinical endocrinologist, Dr. Heaney has spent a large part of the last 50 years doing clinical research; most of it in the field of vitamin D, working on quantifying the vitamin D economy.

This includes defining how much vitamin D>>>

Neurologist Speaks Out About the Importance of Gut Health for Prevention and Treatment of “Incurable” Neurological Disorders

 By Dr. Mercola
The quality, quantity, and composition of the bacteria in your gut have enormous influence on your brain. Dr. David Perlmutter explores this phenomenon in great detail in his new book, Brain Maker: The Power of Gut Microbes to Heal and Protect Your Brain-for Life.

Dr. Perlmutter is a board-certified neurologist and a fellow of the American College of Nutrition (ACN). He also has a clinic in Naples, Florida, and he's been very active in publishing his findings in peer-reviewed medical journals.

His previous book, Grain Brain, topped the New York Times bestseller list for 54 weeks. In my view, Dr. Perlmutter is probably the leading natural medicine neurologist in the US.

Certainly, most neurologists fail>>>
