Did you know that 6.1 million American children ages 2-17 are affected by ADHD, which can lead to emotional or behavioral concerns. Fortunately, there are nutrients that can make a difference without the potential side effects and complications of synthetic drugs for both ADHD and ADD. I want you to know the natural alternatives available to help children experience focused, calm lives.

Numbing and Tingling of Fingers and Toes, and Burning Feet
The title refers to a form of neuropathy that is commonly present in diabetics and alcoholics although anyone can experience neuropathy. Neuropathy is a common problem that occurs in the absence in a number of nutritional factors that support the nervous system.
In order to correct the function and structure of the nervous system it would be prudent to use a number of B vitamins with specific minerals to control blood sugar level, a powerful antioxidant such as lipoic acid, and the anti-inflammatory properties of boswellia. The American diet is essentially refined carbohydrates and simple sugars.
While these foods do not supply B vitamins, B vitamins are essential to help metabolize carbohydrates and sugar. A combination of B vitamins, zinc, chromium, alpha-lipoic acid and boswellia can go a long way in significantly supporting healthy nerve function throughout the body, but particularly in the feet and hands. These nutrients will also improve circulation and support healthy blood sugar metabolism.
TODAY'S WORD From Joel and Victoria
Store it Up
Jesus went before us and paved the way for victory. Because He lives, we can live in victory in this life and in eternity. Not only can we live in victory, we can help others live in victory, too. We can help the people around us, and we can help the people who are coming after us. We can store up mercy, peace and blessings for future generations.
The life we live should make it easier for the people after us. By living a life of excellence, we are leaving a mark for future generations. And really, that's what matters most in eternity. It's good to leave an inheritance, but the most valuable thing you can leave on this earth is a legacy of faith.
