What Is ADHD?

I want to start off saying that ADHD is not really a disease. ADHD is people, and whether it be a male or a female, it’s really the way your brain chemistry works — and some of it is personality traits. I’ll talk about this a little later on, but most people with ADHD are male, especially male children. Also, a lot of times there are different types of learning for people with ADHD; people can be kinesthetic learners or auditory learners, so I’ll talk about that as well.

ADHD and attention deficit disorder (ADD) are neurological and behavior-related conditions that cause difficulty in concentrating, impulsiveness and excessive energy. Individuals with ADHD not only have a challenge in concentrating, but have a challenge sitting still. Those with ADHD are typically more disruptive than individuals with ADD.

ADHD often has an onset age of 7, but this disorder can continue through teen years and well into adulthood. It’s estimated that ADHD affects 9 percent of American children between the ages of 13 and 18 and over 4 percent of adults.
According to the NIH’s National Institute of Mental Health, “the number of children being diagnosed with ADHD is increasing, but it is unclear why.” Most physicians and research indicate the increase in ADHD is directly linked to the food we eat.y

Undermethylation Traits

You’re likely to be a high-achiever constantly striving for greater levels of career accomplishment. Entrepreneurs, corporate executives, professional athletes, doctors, lawyers, producers, and scientists all fit this type. Looking at Hollywood and Silicon Valley as a whole, I know straight away the vast majority of these folks are undermethylated. You probably have at least a graduate level education, and may come from an affluent background.

Despite all your accomplishments and accolades, you suffer from severe inner turmoil, yet remain calm on the outside. Highly perfectionistic, no detail goes unnoticed. You were self-motivated in school and probably come from a family of high-achievers. You have obsessive compulsive tendencies you can’t seem to shake that drive you nuts. You’ve always been very strong willed with a high libido. Despite poor concentration, ritualistic behaviors make you feel in control and you have a tendency toward addiction.

You probably have a low tolerance for pain. Seasonal allergies and headaches may be a problem, yet you respond quite well to antihistamines. You also respond well to anti-depressants, but may isolate yourself socially because you feel misunderstood and struggle with phobias.

Undermethylation is much more common than overmethylation, and undermethylated parents have higher rates of autistic children due to epigenetic insults.

What happens when a gene gets dirty?

1. It cannot function
2. Since it cannot function, work doesn’t get done.
3. Minor symptoms start happening.
4. Another gene or two or twenty get called in to help out since the one gene cannot get its job done.
5. Those genes get overworked and tired.
6. They start getting dirty.
7. More and more random symptoms start happening – think chronic disease.
8. Other genes step up as the others get tired. These other genes are not pleased about it and make noise.
9. Major symptoms start happening – think emergent care.

Join Carolyn Ledowsky, naturopath and founder of MTHFR Support Australia, for this informative webinar exploring the foundational elements of:

-- MTHFR gene mutations,
-- Dysfunctional methylation pathways and the negative effects they play on our health.

By the end of the webinar you will learn:

-- What is MTHFR/?
-- What is methylation?
-- How to get tested?
-- What body systems and disease processes do they affect?
-- How can we begin to treat it?
-- What role diet, lifestyle and environment plays on you health.
-- What treatment options you have available

Regular exercise takes off years of laziness, study finds.

How about you? How does exercise affect you? 🤗🤔

Some genetic conditions are caused by mutations in a single gene. These conditions are usually inherited in one of several patterns, depending on the gene involved.
(See the link for the patterns of inheritance)
Many health conditions are caused by the combined effects of multiple genes or by interactions between genes and the environment. Such disorders usually do not follow the patterns of inheritance. Examples of conditions caused by multiple genes or gene/environment interactions include heart disease, diabetes, schizophrenia, and certain types of cancer.

Happy Healthy New Year !!

There are several enzymes in the methylation cycle. It’s an extremely complex metabolic cycle and involves the coordination of several enzymes. Mutations in certain genes that code for those enzymes can lead to decreased activity of those enzymes and, therefore, decreased activity of methylation in general.
The most important enzymes in that cycle are MTHFR – that’s probably the one that’s best known; it stands for methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase – and then CBS, COMT, VDR, MTR, and MTRR are other genes that are involved in the methylation cycle.
