Dyslexia: Top Natural Supplements for Treatment

Thursday, 13 Jan 2011 03:29 PM

Dyslexia is a learning disability which impairs a child’s ability to read and write. It’s often diagnosed after the child starts school. Dyslexia symptoms include delayed speech, difficulty learning new words, and an inability to recognize letters in the alphabet. Dyslexic children are also unable to process graphic symbols. They often display a tendency for mirror writing; reading things backwards and writing letters and numbers in reverse. There is no complete and immediate treatment for dyslexia, however, with the correct diagnosis and proper understanding of the situation by parents and teachers, dyslexic children can have a successful school life.

A number of research reports associate dyslexia with a deficiency of unsaturated fatty acids, like the ones found in fish. Hence, children whose mothers consume a lot of oily fish and tuna are less likely to have dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD, and other such disorders. In fact, adding these fish oil supplements to dyslexic children’s diets can make a huge difference. Fish oil supplements containing omega3 fatty acids top this list.

Another relatively new supplement is Efalex, which comes under the category of natural treatment for dyslexia. It contains tuna fish oil, vitamin E, and evening primrose oil. Loaded with essential fatty acids, it is said to improve brain function. Fatty acid supplements may also lower blood pressure and cholesterol.

Efalex floods your brain with essential fatty acids that results in a marked improvement in reading and writing skills.

Other recommended supplements for dyslexia treatment are:

· Bee pollen - contains necessary minerals and vitamins.
· Royal jelly –contains vitamin B complex.
· Multi-minerals - aids in proper composition and body function.
· Gingko biloba – helps increase circulation in the brain
· Vitamin C
· B complex B1, B5, B12
· Calcium
· Magnesium
· Zinc
· Selenium

The above mentioned natural supplements can't be considered a "cure" for dyslexia, but they surely make a huge difference in the treatment of dyslexia.
