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 sufferring from an old traumtic brain injury that was never recognized. Coming thru 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 thru 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.
Another group of ADD/ADHD children are the victims of a very subtle post vaccine encephalitic syndrome. The point is not all ADD/ADHD are the same, you don’t treat them all as a homogeneous group, and what benefits someone who has hyper-focused ADD might not benefit someone with ADD caused by an unrecognized brain trauma.
