Possible Causes For Attention and Focus Problems Prenatal Damage Prenatal damages can be due to some sort of birth trauma, which can range from an accident, infection and/or emotional trauma. There are studies in which brain damage was associated to anoxia, hypoxia (lack of oxygen) severe enough to result in permanent damage. Heavy Metals Heavy metals are a concern because they influence behavior especially in children.

Possible Causes For Attention and Focus Problems Food Intolerance and/or Allergies In 1977, Norway banned all artificial colors in foods and beverages. In 1978, a double-blind controlled study, conducted at a West German University hospital, reported that phosphates such as phosphoric acid, a buffering agent, might provoke hyperactivity or hyper-aggressive behavior in children and adolescents. Phosphoric acid can be found as an additive in following foods, soda, sausage and many other processed foods. The more phosphoric acid you ingest the more other minerals, such as calcium and magnesium which help regulates nerve and muscle function, can be displaced or depleted. Infections There may be a relationship between a common infection (strep throat) and the development of a number of childhood movement disorders such as hyperactivity or tic in some children.

Nutrition, Behavior and the Brain Iron is involved in the utilizing nutrients in order to supply the brain with energy and aids in the manufacturing of neurotransmitters and DNA. Iron is a double-edge sword because it is extremely important in cognition but also can become toxic in children. Magnesium is a necessary building block for making ATP (cellular energy), involved in lipid metabolism, amino acid activation regulates calcium flow, pronounced startle response and relaxes muscles. The conclusion from the investigations of magnesium deficiency in ADHD children were that it is more often deficient in these children than healthy non-ADHD children. Research has found that when given a supplement of magnesium there was a significant decrease of hyperactivity. Studies have linked low levels essential Fatty acids to depression, dyslexia, schizophrenia and attention deficits. Poor dietary habits cause deficiencies in EFA’s especially Omega 3’s. Too much sugar, refined white flour, and other processed foods which increases the need for EFA’s.
