Overview

This important new book documents 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 ineffective behavioral therapies or the controversial prescription drug Ritalin. Now Dr. B. Jacqueline Stordy, a leading researcher in the field, reveals a stunning new treatment based on a simple nutritional supplement: LCP (long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids). The LCP Solution is the first book to describe this new 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, Dr. Stordy discovered in a pioneering experiment that dyslexic and dyspraxic children who began taking a dietary supplement consisting of LCP 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: after only a few weeks, dyslexic and ADHD children became calmer, more focused, easier to teach, while dyspraxics improved significantly in dexterity and balance, showing markedly less anxiety.

In The LCP Solution, Dr. 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. Illuminating, vividly presented, and authoritative in its findings, this book will revolutionize our approach to learning disabilities. LCPs are natural, simple to use, and amazing in their benefits. If you or someone you love suffers from a learning disability, this book is essential reading.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book is must reading not only for those suffering from ADHD and related disorders, but also for everyone interested in optimal brain health at any age."
--CHRISTIANE NORTHRUP, M.D.
   Author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom
Library Journal
The dramatic increase in learning disorders in children has prompted researchers to investigate underlying causes and try to identify effective, natural treatments. What they discovered is that people with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), dyslexia, and dyspraxia all seem to have a defect in fatty acid metabolism, which can be treated with foods and supplements rich in long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPs). In this well-written book, British nutritionist Stordy clearly explains how LCPs are essential for proper brain development, why harmful fats have such a negative impact on brain function, and why the typical American diet is so deficient in the healthy fats found in cold-water fish and algae. Along with information about the latest scientific research and about strategies to help children cope with learning disorders, Stordy provides real-life stories of the dramatic results that have been achieved by adding supplements. Because LCPs are so crucial during pregnancy and childhood, Stordy also discusses the leading recommended brands of supplements currently available. Marcia Zimmerman's The A.D.D. Solution (LJ 7/99) also emphasizes the advantages of diet therapy over harmful medications like Ritalin, but Stordy focuses more cogently on "the single most important element in promoting a child's ability to overcome a learning disadvantage." Highly recommended for public, academic, and medical libraries.--Ilse Heidmann, San Marcos, TX Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.

    This is the future of brain research

    The condescending 'warning' from the PhD candidate should be taken with a grain of salt IMO. Despite the candidate's conviction that all parents are stupid and he or she is brilliant, most people are aware that dietary intervention addresses one piece of the puzzle, and is not intended to miraculously cure children. Additionally, the PhD candidate has been brainwashed to prefer cognitive-behavioral explanations over all other explanations for learning disabilities, and probabaly feels very threatened by simple biological interventions that parents don't have to rely on 'experts' to implement. In fact, the trajectory of research in the area of mental illness and cognitive function is movement toward consideration of autoimmune and metabolic processes in the brain.

    sensational claims that aren't backed up

    I urge parents or loved ones with learning disabilities to approach books such as this with caution. I am a researcher in cognitive psychology, with my main area of research being learning and language disabilities. While it's attractive to want such a quick fix for the problems your child may have, look carefully at the evidence before you buy into it. Changing your child's diet is not a miracle solution in helping a child with dyslexia or ADHD.

    It Really Helped!

    Last summer (2001) my husband and I purchased this book. It is a pretty easy read. As soon as we finished reading the book we quickly ran out and bought Efalex(a fish oil supplement) at GNC. We watched as our daughter began talking( at the age of 4 1/2) she had a limited vocabulary of about 50 words. Within six months she was potty trained! Now a year later she is saying 4-5 word sentences. Our daughter has not been diagnosed with Apraxia but several speech therapists say they believe that she has Verbal Apraxia. I would highly recommend this book for anyone who is watching their child struggle with Apraxia.

    excellent book

    If you have a child that has one of these conditions this is a 'must read book' I read this book in two days I plan to give the supplements to my daughter who has apraxia and my son who has pholongical disorder and my husband and I both plan to take the supplement.
