Organic Foods May Offer ADHD Relief

Adhering to a diet primarily of organic fruit and vegetables can be an important component in the treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Pesticides used in conventional food production have been found to increase children’s risk of developing ADHD.  By choosing organic foods, you’ll also be avoiding artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives, as well as GMO foods.  Choose organic meats and include healthy, organic fat such as avocados and flaxseed.
