i'm looking into a few things that may or may not have "caused" my sons ADHD. i was wondering how many of your children had frequent rounds of antibiotics as a child? i was thinking about that yesterday cause my child was on antibiotics for a long time as a baby for ear infections, and i found articles saying studies have shown that 69% of ADHD children had lots of antibiotics as babies.
antibiotics hurt the intestinal "good" bacteria, leaving a very acidic, harsh area to digest food. it makes it so they can't absorb nutrients as well as creating an environment that candida yeast likes and thrives off, creating toxins that could affect their brain.
anyway, i'm just curious to see if your babies had a lot of antibiotics as babies. thank you!
