In our practice we see a lot of people with hidden food intolerances. One of the most common food culprits is wheat. Why is this? Most of our clients are dismayed and surprised that wheat is one of the main causes of their stiff, painful joints, aching muscles, fatigue, brain fog and digestive complaints. After all, humans have been eating wheat for thousands of years and our clients have been eating wheat their entire lives. How could this delicious and, supposedly, nutritious food be causing so many health problems?

Kathy was 35 years old, but she felt like she was 65. She was exhausted, really exhausted. She had been that way for close to four years. Coming home from work and counting the minutes until the kids went to bed so she could was becoming a daily occurrence. She was even tired on weekends. She never seemed to catch up on her rest, even when she slept ten hours a night she felt like she needed more sleep. She felt like she was living with her head in a cloud. Her fatigue interfered with everything in her life: work, hobbies, cooking, and most importantly, her family. Her husband complained that she had no interest in sex and her children were begging their mommy to play with them.
Kathy had gone to doctor after doctor explaining her condition and was tested for one thing after another, all coming up negative. But why was she feeling this way? Her once buoyant life had faded away into a drowsy prison. After months of investigation, she was finally given the diagnosis of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS).

Children with ADHD tend to be hyperactive, impulsive, and inattentive.
Not everyone who is overly hyperactive, inattentive, or impulsive has ADHD. Since most people answer out of turn, are distracted easily, and become disorganized, how can specialists tell if the problem is specifically ADHD?
