A recent researcher (Grimaldi) has hypothesized that Magnesium deficiency ma play a central role in all the three diseases.
Avatar n tn I assume that the pediatrician's recommendation was made because, in addition to his seizure disorder, your son has been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. If such a diagnosis has been made, use of medication (in light of the symptoms you describe) might be a very reasonable thing to do.

Avatar f tn She comes from a stable home with parents that love her, we give our children equal attention and do all the family things such as eat meals together at the table and take trips to the museum/exhibitions etc. Neither of our kids lack attention or discipline, Myself being the main disciplanary figure as I'm at home.

Avatar f tn I am so glad I found this site. I am 33 years old and I rock back and forth and hum, I do this most of the day, because it is very relaxing, and most of the time I do not know I am doing it unless someone tells me.
