View Full Version : excitotoxins & adhd
12-27-2004, 05:27 PM
Does anyone know where to find good websites or books about ADD/ADHD & excitotoxins (used in processed & refined foods) ? I have run across kids where their ADD/ADHD is bad, but so is their diet. I would hate to think medication replaces proper eating, but I think it's fairly common.

Don't know websites in general but I have heard of the Feingold something or other.
There is the Appleton school experience where they cleaned up the food.
A Different Kind of School Lunch (http://www.feingold.org/PF/wisconsin1.html)
And with the Performance Nutrition of PnP by DesMaisons, Dr. Kathleen has said she does not believe ADD/ADHD can be reliably diagnosed until after the food is clean. Because so many ADD symptoms just go away when the kids get regular meals on time with adequate protein, slow carb, veggies, and no junk. The families doing PnP see this improvement all the time.

I was unfamiliar with the excitotoxin concept before. Is the basic definition that it is a molecule with a harmful impact on the neurological system?
I have come across the topic of neurotoxins in the book 'Genefit Nutrition'. There is some information about the neurological impact of Maillard Molecules on the body throughout the following link; the second article addresses the impact of Maillard Molecules on normal and Alzheimer diseased brains.
