About half the population will decrease blood flow to their frontal lobes when they go to concentrate – it obviously conferred an increased survival benefit at some point in our evolution.
You can imagine a hyperfocused hunter-gatherer would bring home more food than a hunter without what today we call ADD/ADHD.
The brain can be retrained to have a pattern that is less “ADD” ish and there are supplements and other modalities that can assist, but many have environmental triggers to their lack of focus that has nothing to do with inheriting something from an ancestor 10 thousand years ago.
Some children are actually suffering from an old traumtic brain injury that was never recognized. Coming through the birth canal is dangerous to a baby’s brain and just because someone doesn’t have cerebral palsy doesn’t mean one made it through the birth canal without injury.
For some children with ADD/ADHD they are having problems because they actually have a great body burden of some very toxic elements such as lead or mercury. In this situation detoxification is the first order of business, just like removing foods that are upsetting a child’s immune system would be the first order of business if certain foods are identified for increasing symptoms.
Others may have neuro-developmental delays, leading to under performing pathways in the brain. Our objective testing allows to not only identify these areas of the brain, but we can then formulate a customized treatment program to improve function.
