Here are the top 5 things John’s mom did to help him overcome his ADHD diagnosis.
Our family all went grain, starch and sugar free:
No wheat, potatoes, rice, corn, grains or high-sugar fruit or unhealthy sugar substitutes. Some things I pack for his school lunches:
- Dinner leftovers
- Bunless cheeseburgers/chicken burgers
- Grain-free bagel sandwiches
- Chobani SF or Keto Ratio yogurt with keto granola
- Munk Pack bars or Nick’s bars
- Homemade lunchables
- HighKey or Fatsnax crackers
- Hilo or Quest chips / pork rinds
- Meat sticks
- Cheese sticks
- Soy-free jello
I have a page for my son on Facebook called Will and Goody – The Type 1 Team where I share a ton of low-carb meal and snack ideas.
We shifted our mindset:
We discussed mindset a lot in homeschool. We did several activities about GRIT, perception and self love. We studied happiness and how our emotions can impact our decisions. We even made our own guided meditations.
We did “box breathing”:
Our favorite breathing technique is what we call “box breathing.” Breathe in for 4, hold for 4, Breathe out for 4, then hold for 4. Repeat 4 times. It’s amazing how it resets. We also do 10-Second hugs. These are especially helpful if we are upset with each other or just feel anxious. We call is “heart synching”.
Homeschooling brought clarity:
It was homeschooling where I actually could see the true behaviors and inability to focus without the meds. But the real life event was my younger son developing diabetes. It caused us all to pause and rethink lifestyle. In a way, it’s been a gift.
We trained our minds:
Diet, mindset and lifestyle changes don’t happen overnight. Addictions are hard to break. The mind has to be trained to focus on the good stuff. When social behavior is explained, it’s easier to understand why focusing on our emotions is important. Communication is vital. I talk to my kids often about fear, worry and limited beliefs. Thoughts become things. We are capable of writing our own stories.
