Hello Special Young Person,
Has a doctor 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?
There is good news for you.
There are some natural supplements that you can take that will make a world of difference. Help you concentrate in school too. Natural foods are always safer than drugs.
Just look at these mistakes that poor Christopher Robin made in his Bible stories test. Ask Mom or Dad to help you correct them.
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
(see the wonders of apples) APPLE SALAD RECIPE ...
and plenty of water. Here are a few imaginative ways in which you can get your kids to drink more water, without getting into colas laden with chemicals and sugar. DRINKING WATER ...
HEALTHY BREAKFAST MENU
Nothing is more important, kiddo, than some good nosh before going off to school. If you're not getting the good 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. So easy - a couple strawberries, half a banana, half a peach or apple... your favourites. Add a slosh of yoghurt... home and dry. Oooo, walnuts on your cereal. Yum, full of omega-3. HEALTHY BREAKFAST MENU ...
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 ...
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.
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.

This is such fun, just listen to these horses singing... HORSES HAVING FUN... (hestekor)
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.
GHOTIT spell checker
Ghotit was written by dyslectics for dyslectics. It fixes grammar, spelling and punctuation errors not normally picked up by ordinary spell checkers.

Interesting challenges of the day
1. Mr D has very severe midback back. He bent and twisted, feeding his son, and then laughed. Every breath is a nightmare. A sprung rib is every chiropractor's delight. He or she has golden hands. 30 percent better after one treatment.
2. Mrs C has a long history of severe, disabling migraine headaches since having her wisdom teeth removed. She clenches her teeth at night. After six treatments she has no migraines but some jaw joint discomfort remains; a bite plate is in the offing.
3. Mrs U has the trophy for the worst back this year. After major surgery with plates and screws two years later she still had paresis in the lower leg and severe disabling back pain. She's doing far better than expected, in no little part due to a lift in her shoe for a very short leg.
4. Mr V is 86 years old and hurt his back helping his wife into the car. Just one treatment of the sacroiliac joint and he's eighty percent better. It's not always like that.
5. Mr W lay on his back knocking down a pillar. Turning his head causes severe vertigo. He needs the Epley exercises, not pills, research shows. Update, he's fine.
6. I myself had an acute exacerbation of a femoral nerve lesion last year. One immediate treatment by my colleague has fixed the pain in the lower back, but there's some residual numbness in the lower leg; no soaring tomorrow alas.
7. This lady is a 86 year old woman with a 63 scoliosis. Chronic lower back has been her lot in life but she's well pleased with chiropractic and comes for chiropractic help once a month; some conditions you can never cure.
8. She is an 78 year old woman, is doing remarkably well with a bad sciatica. But over 200 pounds she is not losing weight; in fact, gaining despite my suggestions. She's high risk for a stroke. I have referred her to a dietician to crack the whip.
9. A 61 year old man with upper cervical pain yesterday; it's not severe but also not getting better of its own accord. He's afraid it may turn very acute as when I treated him three years ago. Since then it's been fine.
10. A 64 year old woman has had scheuermanns disease; it's left her with a spinal kyphosis and chronic middorsal pain. She responds well to chiropractic treatment provides she come every six weeks or so for maintenance treatment.
11. Mrs C has been having severe headaches, and taking a lot of analgesics. It's a non complicated upper cervical facet syndrome, and she's doing well.
12. Mrs D, a middle aged woman with hip pain of one year duration, despite other treatment. Xrays reveal an impingement syndrome and early hip arthritis. There's much to be done.
13. Mrs B has had one of the nastiest of conditions; vertigo caused by a disturbance in the inner ear. Falling repeatedly and vomiting she consulted her doctor but medication didn't help. After two sessions of the Epley manoeuvres she was 50 percent better. After two weeks 75 percent improved. No longer vomiting all falling. She's not enjoying the Brandt Daroff home exercises.
And so the day goes; chiropractors shouldn't be treating the elderly most medical sites state but that's so much bunkum.
Have a problem that's not getting better? Looking for a different slant on your pain? Want to pose a question?
Greetings, Dr B.
You helped me quite some time back with a soothing and professional response which turned out to be exactly correct. I now consult a local chiropractor. You write a superb newsletter, too.
Your own unresolved problem. Pose a question
Knowing that up to 70% of the time the correct diagnosis is made with no examination, no special tests, no xrays, but just from the history, there's a fair chance I can add some insight to your unresolved problem. But at least 30% of the time, I may be quite wrong! Give plenty of detail if you want a sensible reply.
You visited this chiropractic help site no doubt because you have a problem that is not resolving and want to know more about what chiropractors do.
The quickest and most interesting way is to read one of my ebooks of anecdotes. Described by a reader as gems, both funny and healthful, from the life and work of a chiropractor, you'll love them. Priced right at $2.99, though Kindle fiddles the price without telling me.
