Summary This book presents a major breakthrough in the treatment of the three most widespread learning disabilities -- ADHD, dyslexia, and dyspraxia ("clumsy child syndrome"). Although these conditions have reached epidemic proportions, treatment has been limited to physical therapies, educational strategies, or the controversial prescription drug Ritalin. Now B. Jacqueline Stordy, Ph. D., a leading researcher in the field, reveals a stunning new treatment based on nutritional supplementation with LCPs (long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids). The LCP Solution is the first book to describe this natural treatment and to explain how children (and adults) can incorporate it into their daily lives.
As a member of a family with a long history of dyslexia, Stordy discovered in a pioneering experiment that many dyslexic and dyspraxic children who began taking LCPs experienced dramatic transformations in the quality of their lives. At the same time, parallel studies conducted at Purdue University came up with similar results with children who had ADHD. The effect of this dietary supplement was nothing short of revolutionary: within three months, a majority of dyslexic and ADHD children became calmer, more focused, easier to teach, while dyspraxics improved significantly in dexterity and balance.
Writing with the authority of a scientist and the passion of a concerned mother, Stordy documents how this life-changing treatment came about and explains step-by-step how sufferers of each of the three major conditions can use it to change their lives at home, at school, and at work. Vividly presented and illuminating in its findings, this book will revolutionize our approach to learning disorders. LCPs are natural, simple to use, and amazing in their benefits.
