Hello Special Young Person,
Has a doctor or your teacher told your parents that you have a reading problem?
Are you always getting into difficulties with your teacher because you can't read too well, and she says your spelling is simply horrible? Always getting into trouble too? Perhaps you find it hard to concentrate for very long.
There is good news for you.
There are some natural supplements that you can take that will make a world of difference; they will help you concentrate in school too. Natural foods are always safer than drugs.
Just look at the mistakes below that poor Christopher Robin made in his Bible stories test. Ask Mom or Dad to help you correct them.
Tomorrow night you can enjoy a few more of poor Christopher's mistakes.
If you think these are in bad taste, please let me know, via Contact.
What really compounds a child's life is a poor diet PLUS a writing problem. Then they are likely to have attention deficit PLUS dyslexia, and school becomes pure misery for them. Then they make life miserable for their teacher, and for you.
Make sure your kids are getting plenty of fruit as in this simple fruit salad recipe below. An apple a day is not some urban legend; it's scientifically proven.
And, of course, plenty of water is important too. Here are a few imaginative ways in which you can get your kids to drink more liquid, without getting into colas laden with chemicals and sugar.
Nothing is more important, kiddo, than some good nosh before going off to school. If you're not getting the right stuff to eat, your brain doesn't tick properly, and then your spelling just goes haywire.
I'll bet you could get Mom to teach you to make this smoothie every morning. It's so easy; just a couple strawberries, half a banana, half a peach or apple and any of your favourite fruits. Add a slosh of yoghurt and you're home and dry. Oh, walnuts on your cereal add lots of flavour; yum, they are full of omega 3.
Walnuts are hard to get in my country, but we have plenty of pecans. My granddaughter, Ruth, who is only seven can crack them; so could you.
Start them young and you will be astonished how children will take to salads. You should just see my grandkids, 2&4 tucking into olives and salad! Here's an idea for a basic Greek salad. OLIVE GARDEN SALAD RECIPE ...
Interesting research shows that children who eat their greens perform better in school, thought to be due to the B vitamins; organic food greens should be on every mother's agenda, whether your kids have dyslexia or not.
GROWING AVOCADO TREES
Got room in your garden for a minature avocado tree? Not in the frozen north I confess, but in all temperate climates. Above you can see She-who-must-be-obeyed planting a Pinkerton avocado to add to our Hass and Fuerte. Our grandchildren are having avocado every day for lunch at the moment - they adore them. AVOCADO FAT ... good stuff for the brain.
Dear Parent, please, please think of alternatives before starting
your child on a life time dependence on drugs for solutions. Sometimes
it is necessary - if your child is diabetic - but for Dyslexia? Read
more about Iatrogenic Disease, doctor-caused disease, most of which is
about the harmful effects of drugs.

Research is proving that the best treatment for Dyslexia probably has to do with certain fats. The brain is made of fat after all. We too feel that hydrogenation of oils may have much to do with it, though it is not yet proved. But trans fatty acids haven been proven to cause havoc with your cholesterol profile, so it's good to avoid hydrogenated foods in any case. The best fats are found in avocados, olives and olive oil and fatty fish like salmon. I strongly recommend avoiding margarine, supermarket salad dressings. READ FURTHER about margarine.

WAYS TO COOK SALMON
If you have a child with a condition like Dyslexia or Attention Deficit then fatty fish should be on the menu every day in one form or another. Perhaps a fish soup twice a week, broccoli and salmon go wonderfully together as do these mackerel recipes. Shouldn't some of this smoked salmon dip recipe be perfect for kids lunch ideas? Making up healthy lunch boxes for kids is obviously a challenge for every mum - you are after all competing with 500 other mothers. But please some fish in your packed lunch ideas.
Flax seed and walnuts are the best vegetarian options.
