Did you know that Frankincense can travel past the blood brain barrier?! What is the blood brain barrier you ask? It is a wall of high density cells that restricts passages of substances from the bloodstream into the brain. It actually protects our brain from foreign substances. However some essential oils have a very light modecular weight, they can pass through the blood brain barrier and can carry more oxygen into the brain, can also assist and benefit those with Alzheimer’s, memory loss, ADHD, metal toxicity and more. #BBB#bloodbrainbarrier#frankincense#essentialoils#metaltoxicity#Alzheimer’s #memoryloss#ADHD#foreign#benefits#holistichealth#E3oils

There are SO many more! These are just some of the most recognisable names. There are prolific inventors, Pulitzer Prize winners, top sports people across all sports, polititcians. Its even thought that Walt Disney, Albert Einstein, Winston Churchill, John F Kennedy and Henry Ford all had ADHD as well.
And all of these people above attribute their Adhd not just to struggles they've had, but to their major success!
Part of my goals for 2017 was to understand my own ADHD bettwr whilst also helping others to understand it and break some of the stigma and misinformation about it.
Adhd exists. No question.
It is a very real brain disorder that is able to be measured and shown in brain scans. It is the most researched and documented medical condition.
It is also the second most genetically passed down condition second only to eye colour.
Oh and people with ADHD are 300% more likely to start their own business/company. 300%!! Hope these facts have been helpful or insightful. I know they were to me.
"My brain scrambled back to turning the page, was it 11 seconds before I touched the stain? I couldn't remember and even with him trying to calm me down, I rushed to the bathroom. I turned the water on hot and pumped out soap. The water began to steam and my hands turned red. Scrubbing and scrubbing. I must have washed my hands 11 or 15 times in a short period of time, going ad far as boiling my hands to kill HIV/AIDS. My hands were bright red and they were raw. They hutt. When I applied lotion to them, it made me want to keep from the cooling relief of the lotion." New article up on the website! To read it, go to mentalgladiatormedia.com or click the link in my bio. It was written by Mickey Paradis, who has accounts called @halloween666maniac and @_rabie_baby_ on her, and she wrote about her experience with OCD.
Spoiler alert: Mickey doesn't have aids. But that's what OCD does. It makes your biggest fears seem real. Even when you know it's not really and crazy, your brain makes you worry and think that there's just the tiniest chance that your fear is a possibility. OCD is so misunderstood, so take two minutes or so and check it out to learn a thing or two!

“When Ella was diagnosed with cri du chat I was told the worst news I could imagine. Cri du chat means Ella is missing part of a chromosome, it's very rare (1 in 50,000) The phrase 'Ella would never' became something I would hear often. Ella would never walk, Ella would never make eye contact, Ella would never communicate. Turns out so much of it was wrong! With a lot of hard work and determination Ella has made me so proud with every milestone she reached. Ella walks, Ella is very social and can communicate using a combination of sign, and an electronic device that talks for her. She can recognize 4 letters of the alphabet, as well as her name and the word mum. She knows all her colours and shapes. At 6 years old Ella has already proven so many people wrong, and I believe she will continue to smash her goals as she grows up.” @pirate.mel
