How the body responds to food and lifestyle choices and its effect on ADHD have always fascinated me. Earlier this year a reader of the Untapped Brilliance blog contacted me and said,
“I just came across your blog and I love it. I have never tried medication for my ADHD. I have made quite a few lifestyle changes in the last few years. I have tried many things out there in the world of naturopathy, alternative therapies, etc. You are right on about gluten…. ”
They went into a little more detail about everything they’d tried and then said, “Feel free to contact me if you would like me to share more so you could in turn share it with your readers. “Greg Weinstein
After a few emails to and fro, it was clear Greg was a wealth of knowledge it and it would be better for you to hear directly from Greg. So, here is a 40 minute interview with the man himself!
During the interview Greg shares what trigger him to start exploring alternative ways to treat ADHD.
He also talks about…
- The Small intestine (the second brain)
- Blue green algae
- Green veggies (kale etc)
- Mucus producing’ foods (such as dairy)
- Internal cleanse that utilizes psyllium husk and bentonite clay
- Stress management
Greg’s enthusiasm makes you want to try everything! Even if some of the things sound weird or are very new to you, I am positive you will curious to try at least one of the suggestions.
