A recent New York Times/CBS News poll found that teenagers aged 13 to 17, from affluent homes regardless of their race or gender, had more stress than those from modest homes. Wealthy youngsters often have less perspective on the struggles of life, and there’s lots of pressure to keep the family’s status – getting into the elite schools, good grades and living up to their parents’ academic expectations, etc.

Attention Deficit Disorder – ADD
ADD is not caused by a bug or disease. There is no laboratory test that can identify it. ADD is a condition brought on by depleted and exhausted nerves. People with ADD live at a low rate of vibration – the victims of a weakened nerve force. They have little energy to pay attention, to complete tasks or to ward off worry and frustration. Doctors, teachers and psychiatrists prescribe drugs like Ritalin at an ever increasing rate. Although almost 8 million school children are taking Ritalin, ADD is still the fastest growing childhood disorder in the U.S.! Drugs might mask some of the symptoms of Nerve Depletion, but do not replenish Nerve Force. ADD sufferers need to build up their Nerve Force, raise their rate of vibration and take control of their lives! Not surprisingly, more and more studies are finding that drugs are a dead-end in the treatment of ADD. Instead, they are finding that people are renewed to health only when they replenish their reserves of Nerve Force. This is accomplished, not through drugs, but through the kinds of changes in diet and lifestyle that we outline in this book. Australian researchers found that ADD children began replenishing their Nerve Force after they were put on a natural diet free of coloring, preservatives, etc. A similar study by the Cornell Medical Center recorded a 73% improvement with ADD patients. Unnatural and altered foods tax the nervous system, as do highly sweetened and processed foods. Children are at a greater risk of harm from this kind of diet. As our foods become more processed and refined, our children become inattentive, unfocused, unhealthy and unhappy.

Researchers have found that those who are the most resistant to stress and anxiety enjoy an active, healthy lifestyle. This includes: twenty minutes or more of exercise daily; stretching your body to allow a natural flow of energy and eating healthy meals.

Other suggestions include:

  • Gardening – researchers have found it helps relieve tensions and is a powerful natural medicine for emotional, spiritual and physical healing.
  • Enjoying natural beauty – scientific studies indicate that when individuals view beautiful natural scenes such as waterfalls, trees, animals, flowers, etc., they relieve anxiety, relax more easily and feel happier.
  • Reducing or stopping caffeine – which is a stimulant that can trigger panic attacks and heart palpitations.
  • Stop smoking – which “burns up” your nervous system.
  • Unplug the phone and computer – for quiet time can help relieve stress. Write yourself a loving letter.
  • Deep slow breathing exercises release tensions.
  • Releasing your fears and overcoming self-doubt.
  • Restful sleep and even daytime mini “cat”naps.
  • Laughter – people who know how to laugh and have fun are generally able to bounce back from stress.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it!
  • Don’t make impulsive snap judgements – take time.
  • Realize that you can’t change the past – learn from your past pain and let it serve your inner growth.
  • You can’t change others – you can only change yourself and your attitude. Be a strong, positive health captain.
