The Strength of Different Learning Styles 

 

Just as no two people are alike, no two learning styles are exactly the same, either. These differences have been receiving more media coverage lately--particularly around autism and ADHD.

Although these are considered health conditions, each challenge also has a strength. We must work with what we are given regardless of the obstacles. Rather than being isolated and shunned by society, we must embrace the strengths of these health conditions and allow the parts that can flourish to excel, while being more tolerant with the issues that seem abnormal.

I am sure if those with mental health issues could have a choice, they would wish to be more normal, but life does not always work that way. We must accept our challenges and live the life in its full capacity, being mindful of our blessings and accepting our challenges.  

For instance, CBC recently reported that children with ADHD perform better cognitively when they are moving. This is in contrast to typically-developing children, who lose their cognitive edge when they move too much.

An article in The Atlantic postulated that those with autism may be more advanced than neurotypical people. This edge does not just cover "party tricks," either. Those with autism are superior in processing complex patterns. Some studies have also shown that those with autism are more adept at out-of-the-box creative thinking.

There is a new TV show called "The Good Doctor" where the residency doctor has autism. He lacks the social graces of bedside manner, but he sees and reveals the health issues without emotion, for his vision is directed on his task to heal the people.

Dr. Gail Saltz, who just released a book about the link between mental disorders and genius, said many experts in mental disorders (such as autism) say that 20% of time should be spent working on the problem and 80% on exploring and enhancing strengths. While this may feel daunting, especially in severe cases, it is also estimated that "half of all Americans will experience a mental illness at some point in their lives, and about 6.5 million children in the US receive special education services, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. Clearly, recognizing the strength -- not just attending to the weakness -- can change lives and greatly impact our society."

We produce medicines to help those better cope with their mental health condition--not to limit them, but to free them to reach their full potential. DMAE-Lights On has proven itself very effective for helping those with ADHD and autism, as it helps them to focus and be less affected by abstract issues. Neurotransmitter Support also aids in relearning after brain injuries or memory failure-- even helping those with dementia.

Vaccines: News vs. Truth

Vaccines: News vs. Truth 


Last week, CTV reported that Australia has had a particularly bad flu season this year, which could mean that Canada will experience similar challenges. Some pharmacists are already recommending that Canadians plan to get their flu vaccines.

Is recommending that Canadians do something here because something happened in Australia logical? Why don’t we do that for other health concerns, as well? According to this article, the most pressing global health concerns are drug-resistant bacteria, HIV, reproductive health care, the Zika virus, and the race for new vaccines.

Are the existing vaccines even helpful, though? Recent studies seem to suggest they are not. One study found that people who received the flu vaccine two years in a row were actually at a higher risk of being infected with the current flu strain. Earlier this year, a report found that the existing "vaccinate or mask" (VOM) policy required for health care workers in some provinces may not be as life-saving as previously thought. Even a study published just last month found that pregnant women who received back-to-back annual flu shots were at a higher risk for miscarriage.

Despite these findings, there is a huge push by pharma to keep the vaccine machine pumping, for if they let up, vaccine levels tend to drop; yet, the country is no sicker than when vaccinated. The fear tactics concerning vaccines especially highlight children and seniors. While it is true that they are the most vulnerable, they are also the ones that don’t normally eat a proper, healthy daily food intake. Until now, we did not have any transparency of the pharmaceutical companies' involvement in the health care system in Canada. That trend may be changing, though, as it was recently announced that Ontario is planning to force pharmaceutical companies to divulge their payments to doctors, hospitals and universities.

If we for a moment tune out all pharmaceutical influences--be it the news, the magazine ads, or even medical doctors who prescribe medication before hearing your complete problems--we could determine the body’s needs. What has been lacking or overlooked? Do you sleep enough, do you eat 3 proper, wholesome meals, do you drink plenty of water, or sugary caffeinated drinks? Do you take anything to help maintain being healthy--especially for the fall and winter? When the temperature drops, we wear a warmer coat. With this example, why wouldn’t we increase our T-Cell count and take Thymus Gland? To ensure all the essential trace minerals have been taken, a good plant-based B-Complex will fill this need. And, as we are learning, our immunity is connected with our gut microbiota. With this in mind, supplements to achieve and maintain gut health are crucial. Consider a full spectrum enzyme to properly digest food and prevent leaky gut disorder; for good bacterial balance, take a clinically-proven human strain probiotic.

This is not the easy route of vaccination and hoping all is well. This is a building program for health and disease prevention, and we all have the right to choose if we are given all the facts without the fear.
