    About this Episode

    This episode is brought to you by ButcherBox and AG1.


    In today’s world, we are seeing an epidemic of ADHD, along with depression, anxiety, dementia, autism, and more. These are systemic disorders where the body affects the brain. Yes, there’s a mind-body connection, but there’s also a body-mind connection. And everybody is different. ADHD is just a name we give to people who share a collection of symptoms: They can’t focus or pay attention, they’re inattentive, and they are hyperactive. These are symptoms. But what are the causes?


    In today’s episode of my series I’m calling Health Bites, I talk about what causes ADHD, why it’s so prevalent, and my top strategies to address it. I also share a case study of a patient I treated for ADHD.

    📝 Podcast Summary

    Shifting the Conversation from Medication to a Holistic Approach

    Attention deficit disorder (ADD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are not simply due to a deficiency of Ritalin or other medications. These conditions, which have become an epidemic affecting 1 in 10 kids in America, have underlying causes that can be addressed and treated. The use of stimulant medications for these conditions has seen a drastic increase over the years, including among high school and college students using them for studying. However, instead of focusing solely on the brain, a more effective approach is to understand that our bodies and brains are interconnected. By addressing the root causes of ADHD and ADD, such as through functional medicine, remarkable transformations can occur. It's time to shift the conversation from medication to a holistic view of our biological network.

    Understanding the underlying systems in our bodies for holistic healing.

    Functional medicine focuses on understanding the underlying systems in our bodies that give rise to dysfunction. Instead of just treating the symptoms of diseases like ADD, Alzheimer's, or depression, we need to address the disturbances in our biological system, such as our gut health, inflammation, neurotransmitters and hormones, detoxification system, energy production, and nervous system. Knowing the name of the disease doesn't necessarily mean we know what's wrong with us, as the causes can vary from person to person. We must explore what's truly happening in our brains and understand the mind-body and body-mind connection. Everything we do, from what we eat to how we think, affects our brain. The key is to recognize the integrated system of our body and mind. The current diagnostic model based solely on symptoms may be outdated.

    Addressing the root causes for a holistic view of health

    Functional medicine focuses on addressing the underlying causes of diseases and disorders, rather than just treating the symptoms. This approach allows for a more holistic understanding of the individual's health and well-being. The case of the 12-year-old boy with multiple psychological and physical diagnoses illustrates the importance of looking for patterns and connections in order to uncover the root cause. Through functional medicine, a transformation occurred within just two months, with significant improvements in the boy's handwriting and overall functioning. This story highlights the need to consider how different symptoms may be connected and the importance of collaboration among healthcare providers to provide comprehensive care. By addressing the causes of the disease, rather than just the symptoms, functional medicine offers a more effective approach to healing.

    The Link Between Inflammation and Brain Disorders

    Many physical and mental health issues are connected to inflammation in the body. Conditions like ADD, autism, depression, and even schizophrenia are now considered inflammatory brain disorders. However, the current approach in medicine often treats each symptom separately with numerous medications, leading to a confusing and ineffective cocktail of drugs. This can be especially problematic for children, who may be prescribed a variety of medications for different issues without addressing the underlying cause. It is crucial to look beyond just the emotional or psychological aspects and consider the physical root causes of these conditions. By understanding the connection and focusing on addressing inflammation, we can potentially provide more effective and holistic treatments.

    A Comprehensive Approach to Healthcare: Addressing Imbalances and Root Causes for Better Health

    Functional medicine focuses on identifying and addressing imbalances in the body's systems, rather than simply treating specific diseases. By examining factors such as lifestyle, nutrition, exercise, sleep, and relationships, healthcare professionals like Mark Hyman can uncover the root causes of these imbalances. In the case of Clayton, his poor diet consisting of junk food and processed foods led to a deficiency in essential nutrients such as omega-3 fats and vitamins. These deficiencies were associated with conditions like ADD and eczema. By addressing these deficiencies through nutrition and supplementation, improvements in Clayton's mood, sleep, and overall health were observed. This highlights the importance of a comprehensive approach to healthcare that considers the body's holistic needs.

    The Importance of Nutrition and Addressing Deficiencies for Optimal Health

    Nutrition plays a crucial role in our overall health. Mark Hyman's analysis of this individual's diet revealed deficiencies in important vitamins and minerals like vitamin D, vitamin E, betacarotene, zinc, and magnesium. These deficiencies were linked to various symptoms such as infrequent infections, eczema, allergies, hyperactivity, headaches, anxiety, and muscle cramps. As a result, it is essential to prioritize nutrient-dense foods instead of relying heavily on junk food. Additionally, Hyman emphasizes the importance of comprehensive testing to assess levels of omega-3, vitamin A, magnesium, and vitamin D, which are often overlooked by traditional doctors. Furthermore, the individual's inflammatory issues highlight the connection between inflammation and various health problems, including brain diseases. Identifying and addressing factors that contribute to inflammation, such as food allergies, environmental toxins, and chronic infections, can lead to improved health outcomes. Finally, gluten sensitivity was found to be a significant factor in this case, leading to chronic inflammation in the brain and an immune response.

    The impact of environmental toxins on health and the importance of a holistic approach.

    Many health issues, including gut symptoms, asthma, allergies, and cognitive problems, can be caused or worsened by environmental toxins such as lead and mercury. This is especially concerning for children who may be exposed to these toxins through polluted environments, leaded paint, or contaminated foods. It's important to consider these factors as potential causes for health problems instead of attributing them to deficiencies or bad parenting. By addressing the impact of environmental toxins and improving the gut microbiome, simple treatments can be developed to alleviate multiple health concerns. Therefore, a holistic approach that addresses diet, toxins, and gut health can significantly improve overall well-being.

    A Comprehensive Approach to Optimal Health

    Our bodies are complex systems that require balance and multiple interventions for optimal health. Mark Hyman's approach to treating his patient involved addressing nutritional deficiencies, environmental toxins, and food sensitivities. It wasn't enough to just focus on one aspect; it required a holistic approach. By removing harmful substances and replacing them with beneficial ones, such as a multivitamin, omega-3 fats, and probiotics, the patient's system was reset. This comprehensive approach led to significant improvements, allowing the patient to eventually stop taking various medications. This story highlights the importance of considering all factors that may be contributing to an imbalance and implementing a multifaceted treatment plan for better overall health.

    Simple Changes for Managing ADD and Improving Brain Function

    Simple dietary and lifestyle changes can have a profound impact on managing ADD and improving overall brain function. By adopting a real food diet and eliminating junk, additive sugars, and processed fats, individuals can experience significant improvements in symptoms such as attention and irritability. Identifying and eliminating food sensitivities, particularly gluten and dairy, can also contribute to cognitive changes and enhance brain health. Nutritional deficiencies, including magnesium, zinc, and tryptophan, should be addressed to support optimal brain function. While severe cases may require medication, most children with ADD can benefit from these strategies without the need for medication. Implementing these strategies can help individuals lead healthier, more fulfilling lives.

    Enhancing Gut Health for Better Overall Well-being and Cognitive Function

    Improving gut health through a whole food diet, addressing food sensitivities, and restoring gut flora can have a significant impact on overall health and cognitive function. The microbiome plays a key role in various health conditions, ranging from allergies to autism, and even dementia and Parkinson's. Taking steps to reduce inflammation in the body, such as consuming anti-inflammatory foods and detoxifying from toxins, can also contribute to improved well-being. It is crucial to prioritize colorful fruits and vegetables, healthy fats like Omega-3, and nutrient-rich foods. The case study of Clayton demonstrates how these interventions not only improved his physical symptoms but also resulted in significant improvements in his cognitive capabilities, as seen in his handwriting progress.

    Improving Cognitive Health and Treating Neurodevelopmental Disorders

    Every child is unique, whether they have autism, learning disorders, or ADHD. It is important to find out what's going on and seek the help of a good functional medicine doctor who understands these conditions. The brain is highly responsive to interventions, and there are ways to improve cognitive health. However, it is crucial to work with a healthcare provider when considering stopping medications, as it can be tricky. Functional medicine approaches, such as dietary changes, have shown promise in treating conditions like schizophrenia. It's important to address underlying issues rather than relying solely on talk therapy or behavioral therapy. Understanding these real transformations is key to achieving better mental health outcomes.

When we use this practice to assess the metabolic diseases we see today, we can see we’re in an energy crisis.
