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 the 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 correct diagnosis and proper understanding of the situation by parents and teachers, dyslexic children can have a successful school life.
Dyslexia, like most learning disabilities, can be traced back to a nutritional deficiency. 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 during pregnancy are less likely to later develop dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD, or 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 tops this list.
Another relatively new supplement is Efalex, which falls 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. The other benefits of taking fatty acid supplements are lowering of blood pressure and cholesterol.
Efalex works by flooding your brain with essential fatty acids which 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 and allows it to operate more effectively.
· Vitamin C
· B complex B1, B5, B12
The above mentioned natural supplements can't be called a "cure" for dyslexia, but they surely make a huge difference in the treatment of dyslexia.
