I’ve read in many places now that ADHD is generally considered a lack of dopamine and that sometimes our impulsive traits can be linked to our need to boost those dopamine levels.
I’m curious to know what you think of this article . I’ve noticed huge differences in my own focus, impulsiveness, irritability, and hunger from my diet over the past year. Specifically, I’ve noticed refined flours, empty carbs, caffeine, and aspartame to be some of the biggest culprits.
I’m postulating that much of the adhd symptoms might be able to be controlled through diet. How do you feel about this?
I don’t think diet alone is the entire story. Sleep, exercise, gratitude, and positive thinking are also major players.
