LTO3, A 100% natural remedy found to help well for people with ADD, ADHD and HSPIn the Netherlands and surrounding countries, more and more people with ADD and ADHD are making the switch to LTO3.This is a 100% natural remedy that works for 8 ? 12 hours throughout the day and can be safely taken by anyone aged 3 years and above. For people who would like a support in daily life for their ADD or ADHD, LTO3 proves to be a very good substitute for pharmaceutical drugs such as Ritalin and concerta. Since I learned more about this natural remedy LTO3 and started writing about it on the ADD characteristics website, I have constantly been receiving very positive experiences. In most cases, people with ADD and ADHD tell me they experience all the benefits of Ritalin and Concerta, but without annoying side effects. This also applies to many children. It now turns out that LTO3 is already being used in Europe by tens of thousands of people with ADD and ADHD with great satisfaction. Experiences show that, among other things, it gives them helps with the characteristics of ADD and ADHD such as chaotic behaviour, restlessness, lack of concentration, mood swings, overstimulation, poor memory, hyperactivity and impulsivity. In many cases, they report getting through the day with more focus, clarity and a better mood. These experiences are consistent with the many LTO3 experiences which I am personally sent. I notice that LTO3 is becoming more widely known in the Netherlands and that more and more people with ADD and ADHD are using this natural remedy. It appears that already several practices and coaches in the Netherlands recommend LTO3 to their clients and that they have had very good experiences with it. With this natural remedy, you can

A different perspective on ADD, ADHD and HSPWith the ADD characteristics website, I share an innovative 'different' view of ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder), ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, HSP (High Sensitive Person) and New Age children. It is not knowledge as you are used to. Besides all the general information about ADD, ADHD and HSP, on ADD characteristics, unlike many other websites, you will mainly read a lot about the positive characteristics of these diagnoses and how to strengthen them. The starting point is the strength that lies in every person with the ADD, ADHD, HSP brain. Do you see your ADD / ADHD as a strength? Unfortunately, ADD and ADHD but also HSP can easily develop into a disorder due to the many desires of our environment and society that have always forced us to be on our toes. On a daily basis, we are confronted with things our brains are simply not made for. Society is incredibly demanding and you quickly fall by the wayside if you do not fit into that picture. Many complaints experienced by people with ADD, ADHD but also HSP often stem from a brain that has been derailed over the years. This process started from the moment you went to school as a child. About school and ADD and ADHD and how I myself experienced it in this society, I wrote a great piece on ADD characteristics. To do so, click on the link below: > Living with ADD and ADHD in society
Breaking wavesYou can also read more about the different ADD characteristics on the website brain waves such as Delta, theta, Alpha, beta and Gamma and what these do in the brain and what the major differences are between people with it: > ?normal? brain vs the ?ADD and ADHD brain? Information on how you can easily and directly positively influence your own brainwaves for a more cleared mind, relaxation and better concentration can be read by clicking on the link below: > Quickly and simply get your brain calm and relaxed with Binaural beats! You can read more about all these issues and the beautiful characteristics of ADD, ADHD and HSP and their power and, of course, how you yourself can be more in your power so that you can use more of your positive characteristics, on ADD characteristics. This is backed up with videos, scientific studies, documentaries, interviews, articles, etc. People like us are also needed, don't forget that. So keep following the ADD characteristics website from time to time as it is constantly updated with new information.
The main writer of ADD characteristicsI myself have, Jochem, and lead writer of ADDcharacteristics.net also been diagnosed with ADD and no longer see it as a disorder but a different development of the brain for a reason. Unfortunately, ?survival' in a contemporary society like this is just not easy for us. That is why we often experience so many symptoms. In this way, you can easily develop your ADD or ADHD brain as a disorder. If you encounter problems and hear criticism on a daily basis, you will automatically start to believe that you actually have a disorder. Especially if everyone tells you so because you cannot meet certain expectations. (For this, also read the inspiring story of John Loporto about the eagle) These complaints arise because we have always had to tiptoe to keep up somewhat in society. Every day there are just so many incentives on us and things are expected of us that our brain is simply not made for. So most of the symptoms we experience are actually symptoms due to stress and overstimulation and high expectations from our environment. Living with these ADHD and ADD characteristics does not always make life easy. What can we do ourselves, to make it as easy as possible for ourselves, so that we can better express our positive characteristics of ADD, ADHD and HSP? You can read 9 valuable tips via the link below: > 9 tips for your daily life with ADD, ADHD and HSP For anyone with ADD, ADHD, HSP who is stuck, it's time to find the power again. You've been on the wrong track for long enough. You have managed to adapt long enough to a group of people who were not open to your qualities. On ADD characteristics, you will be helped on your way. The moment you start reaching your strengths again, you will find that the roles are reversed. You will no longer feel different. Instead, people will start to see you as an inspiring and innovative source of energy. Someone who can achieve many great and beautiful things.
Neuroplasticity of the brainFortunately, until we die, our brain is neuroplastic which means we can always retrain our brain regardless of the severity of symptoms. (Creating new neurological connections) We are able to change our unhelpful patterns into helpful ones. This not only makes us feel a lot better but also more successful. A pattern refers to behaviour that our brain carries out unconsciously. 95% of our actions are totally unconscious so we don't have to learn everything over and over again. This retraining of the brain falls under NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming). More on this can be found under the heading: > Neuroplasticity and NLP (Definitely worth a read)
Successful with ADHD and ADD characteristicsYou can also read on ADD features about famous stars, artists and performers who were diagnosed with ADD or ADHD but became incredibly successful! Precisely because they made use of their genius ADD and ADHD brains. Just think of Will Smith, Jim Carry, Einstein, Justin Timberlake, Sylvester Stallone, Robin Williams to name a few. There are hundreds more to name. Think of the many comedians and rock stars. How many BN?ers with ADD and ADHD do we not know? ADHD and ADD characteristics are something to be proud of. A lot of well-known stars around the world with ADHD and ADD characteristics have proven this. Read more about this under the heading: > The successful ADD?er and ADHD?er

- Highly Sensitive Person (HSP), What is it and what are HSP characteristics?
HSP, or high sensitivityThe concept of HSP (high sensitive person), or high sensitive personality is something you hear more and more often these days, but what exactly does it mean? In whom does it occur, how often does HSP occur and what are typical HSP characteristics? You can read more about it below. To begin with, HSP is an English abbreviation of "High Sensitive Person", also known as High Sensitive Personality. In Dutch, we say ?high-sensitive person?, which amounts to high sensitivity. A term made famous since 1992 by the American psychotherapist Elaine Aron. Aron hypothesised that a large part of the population has a different functioning of the nervous system and brain that makes them experience the world in a different way. By Elaine Aron revealed that there are some people who process stimuli in a different way that makes them notice external but also internal signals faster and experience them more strongly. As a result, a high-sensitive person can be easily overstimulated by his environment. For example, crowds in the sense of loud music, large groups of people, many tasks to complete, etc. This high sensitivity, in turn, causes a high-sensitive person, also known as a highly sensitive person, to withdraw to recharge the "battery" in order to experience inner peace again.
A highly sensitive person and their environmentAn HSP, highly sensitive person, perceives much more from his surroundings. Small details in the environment are noticed earlier and the psychological state of others around them are also experienced strongly. Smells and tastes are also strongly experienced. This is because the brain in combination with the nervous system filters stimuli in a different way. Thus, a highly sensitive person may sometimes suddenly experience mood swings. In many cases, this may be due to the psychological state of one or more people around him. This is because a highly sensitive person immediately experiences what mood is going on in another person. This is a well-known characteristic of HSP. In many cases, this mood of another person directly affects his own mood. As a result, the highly sensitive person can quickly start to experience this mood himself, often completely subconsciously. This can be very confusing for a highly sensitive person. He or she will therefore often wonder why this feeling suddenly takes over. Not knowing that these emotions come from another person and are taken over unconsciously. This works the same way with medication and hypersensitivity to food, for example. A highly sensitive person is much more likely to experience small changes in themselves. This can be very confusing and often even cause fear of losing control. Highly sensitive people are also more prone to allergies in many cases. These too are reactions of the nervous system that react excessively.
HSP characteristics, what do you feel if you are highly sensitive?As you have now read, HSP brings with it several traits. The best-known HSP traits in high sensitivity are listed below:
Known HSP characteristics
- More intense and detailed perception (hearing, seeing, smelling, tasting, feeling)
- Strong ability to sense moods and atmospheres of others
- Perceives others' moods as well as her own very strongly
- Have a strong sense of justice which can cause conflict
- A rich inner experience of the world which goes hand in hand with dreaming and fantasising
- More impressed by art and music than average
- Only being able to attach value to something when there is a feeling involved
- A stronger connection with nature
- Willing to help and assist others
- Generally perfectionist in nature
- Good empathy
- Have highly developed intuition
- Seems about a 6the sense to possess
- Profound and creative
- Thinking in images (pictures)
Complaints due to HSP
- Difficulty finding rhythm in life
- Difficulty planning and getting structure
- Often feeling restless due to outside stimuli
- Needs a lot of time to process impressions and come back to himself (overstimulated)
- Can quickly worry about something and is easily upset
- More quickly suffer from symptoms such as stress, tension, anxiety and fatigue
- Experiencing more frequent physical complaints such as gastrointestinal complaints, headaches and allergies
- Rather closet of pain
- Difficulty with life changes
- And a high-sensitive person is often very picky
HSP a disorder or a character trait?These symptoms would almost make you think that HSP is a disorder, but that is absolutely not true. In fact, high sensitivity is purely a natural trait of the person. In fact, it has been studied that 20% of the population have HSP traits to a greater or lesser extent. In men, women, children, adults and even animals, high sensitivity has been found to occur! Perhaps the description of HSP sometimes seems negative but the opposite is true. A highly sensitive person is actually very special. These people have their own take on things and are often very creative and can come up with solutions someone else would never think of. They therefore seem to have a 6th sense, but cannot tell why they know something. Something just tells them how it is. You will also often hear HSPs say, "I just feel that it is like this". Highly sensitive people also generally have very well-developed intuition. Unfortunately, high sensitivity can easily turn into a disorder in our current society in which stress is one of the most common syndromes. After all, we live in a society in which everything has to happen fast and we are bombarded with stimuli. You will understand that HSP can therefore be experienced as a disorder for the person himself. After all, this is confirmed time and again by the environment. Highly sensitive traits are actually not appreciated these days. Despite being such nice traits, we unfortunately no longer live in a society that makes use of them. A highly sensitive person will therefore often not have both feet "grounded" on the ground. They are busy a lot in their head and sometimes feel like they are floating next to reality. As if they no longer quite live in the ?here and now'.
Movies about HSP
What is HSP and what are known HSP characteristics?
In the video below, Elaine Aron explains in her words what HSP is
The highly sensitive child (HSK)
Standing stronger with HSPYou can try a start with mindfulness and meditation. You can find plenty of videos about it on youtube. You will start to experience much more love and relaxation and get closer to yourself as a result. Try just sitting quietly for 10 minutes every day and counting your breath. Or slowly start scanning your body from bottom to top and accept what you are experiencing. I can also recommend reading about the 100% natural product LTO3. More and more people are using this product to experience calmness. LTO3 appears to help very well with overstimulation, restlessness, stress, lack of concentration, feeling foggy in the head, tension and similar complaints. The link below will give you more information about this natural supplement. For LTO3 experiences can be found here watch. > Detailed information on LTO3 and answers to questions You can also find all kinds of books on HSP that will help you feel stronger about yourself.
High sensitivity is beautifulNever forget that a high-sensitive person has very beautiful qualities that you can be proud of! The fact that HSP characteristics can cause complaints does not mean that you are a less beautiful person. On the contrary, I think it makes you more beautiful! Believe in yourself and most importantly, accept yourself! Just remember that you never have to justify yourself to another person. You are good the way you are, it's human. Remember mate that 'normal' people can often learn a lot from highly sensitive people! :)
- Living with ADD / ADHD in society and school
ADD and ADHD is your strength but troublesome in societyFrom the moment a child starts school, the natural gift they have been given is already being tinkered with. A power that gives you a stronger connection to the energy of life. With the ADD/ADHD brain you sense things, you have a good intuition, you know things purely because you sense it, you are wise. As an ADD'er/ADHD'er you are not made to reason everything from the mind but you have a lot of knowledge already available purely because you make a connection with the subconscious that is incomprehensible to others. They are also called new age children. For a large part of the population, it is no problem at all to slowly become to be programmed by what everything and everyone tells you in your life. They are made with a brain which is easily programmed with all the beliefs of our system. Many things are taken for truth because all these people with the "normal brain" live from their minds. So when you live only with the mind, you are also not open to what your feelings, your soul and your instinct told you. This is very good for a society to develop. After all, if everyone had the 'ADD/ADHD brain', it would be very difficult to develop a working system. This would become a chaotic place. But it is also important that a small part of the population does have this power.
The current school system and ADD / ADHDSo the problem is that we are told from childhood how everything works, how everything should be, how it fits together. As an ADD/ADHD person, this is not understandable. We don't need to be told because we have this deeper connection with the energy of life. Because of this, we sense that things are different as told by people living from the "normal brain". We know things are different from what we are told. However, we have to fit into that picture at all costs like the rest of the class. We have to follow all instructions exactly as we are told. But we fail to do so because we simply know better and are not meant to evolve that way. This creates deep frustrations which are thus developed from childhood. So it is also not surprising to consider that people with the so-called ADD or ADHD brain in many cases, eventually become entangled and develop all kinds of psychological symptoms. So ADD and ADHD can also easily develop into a disorder, if we continue to treat children with theta brain in this way. Thus, they also lose their beautiful powers they carry with them. Have you never noticed how calm ADDs and ADHDs become when they enter an environment that does cater to them? Day in and day out, as an AD(H)D'er, you have to fit into the picture, a picture our brain is simply not meant for.
An ADD and ADHD person does not need a blind guide stickThe way children with the ADD and ADHD brain can be compared to giving someone who can see a guide stick for the blind. We have to close our eyes to the deep connection to our strength day in and day out. Like others, on the other hand, we do not need a cane to walk. We can see. Unfortunately, our behaviour is considered annoying and tiresome, this while we are just frustrated and don't understand that everyone needs a blind guide cane. We are placed in a world in which we cannot develop. Indeed, day by day, it becomes a struggle for survival. Read the inspiring story of the eagle What that did to him. It's like putting an eagle in a henhouse. That eagle starts doubting itself more and more. Why can't I concentrate on what I am being told to do. The chickens don't seem to have a problem with it. Those just do as they are told. Those can easily be programmed. The eagle starts doubting himself more and more, slowly closing his eyes to his wonderful gift. He becomes increasingly insecure, stressed and depressed. Provided we get medication that closes our eyes to our strength, we won't need this blind guide stick. We feel how things work, we know there is another way. We don't need to be told everything as it works for others. Then it can be said that ADDs and ADHDs have poor concentration but you are also demanding something from them that they are just not made for. Their soul, feeling, intuition, instinct is so much more highly developed because their theta brain is constantly connected to this flowing powerful energy source. We know many things better, are stubborn, don't listen, are easily bored etc. So logical, our brain craves adventure, interesting stuff, thrills. You don't let an eagle become a battery cage after all.
A blind worldFor an ADD and ADHD person, it is like being born into a blind world. The normal brain needs a blind guide stick for everything. So for them, this system is brilliant. From childhood, they are handed a blind guide stick. At school, they are slowly programmed and thus learn a lot of knowledge which they store in the brain. Thank goodness it works that way for them otherwise they wouldn't make it. They don't have the deeper connection with their soul that tells them how things work. They need this system. In my opinion, this is not why ADDs and ADHDs are on this planet. We are not blind, we do not need this blind guide stick. You may now understand how hugely frustrating it has been for us. When we were about 5 years old, we were pushed day in and day out to close our eyes and our force to suppress. We had to take control of our blind stick at all costs and we had to turn off our intuition and feelings. Why? Simply because that is not understood by all these ignorant people. Not that we are better, it is very important to have these people in society too but that there are other people too should be recognised. Did you know that to this day, ADD and ADHD has not been proven to be a disorder. Frequent ADHD and ADD research has never been able to confirm it! It only looks at the other functioning of the brain, the other brain activity and dopamine processing. Which is indeed demonstrable mat what does that actually say? Nothing at all. The way labels like ADD and ADHD are currently handled and looked at is, in my opinion, totally wrong and out of control. There should be a different system that singles out children with special brains. These children should be schooled in an environment that is familiar to them. An environment they understand, when you do this from an early age you will see what tremendously brilliant children you can develop. They can become brilliant people who are truly capable of creating a better world. These people should be given the chance to develop their strengths instead of being convinced that they have a disorder like the eagle in the example already mentioned. Unfortunately, for the time being, we are pushed to fit into the picture with all its frustrations and consequences. Our brains need to wake up so that our power is switched off, if need be with medication. Then we can close our eyes to the power and join in with the rest. So that medication may help but the question is whether that is what we are for? It can possibly be a step to climb out of a valley but using this for the rest of your life? Then we are aligned with the rest and can join in. Is that what an ADD or ADHD person was brought to earth for? Think for a moment of all the celebrities with ADHD / ADD. Many of them do not even use medication. Why? Because they have found their calling. If you find something you can pour your full creativity and passion into, then your ADD / ADHD will start expressing itself as a gift and only the positive sides will be highlighted. If you think long enough that there is something wrong with you then you will automatically start believing that you really need that medication. When you do develop yourself as an ADD or ADHD sufferer, you will find that you really don't need medication. Go and play sports more often and do what you find interesting. A simple job is simply not for you, your soul is crying out for more! When you find your calling, people will start to see your gift and energy as an enormous source of inspiration. The roles will finally be reversed! But sometimes it can be supportive to (temporarily) take resources that ensure you don't get bogged down by all the things you have to do in life. This allows you to keep a better overview in life and you will possibly be happier because you don't always have to be on your toes. My preference then is not pharmaceutical drugs. Certainly not because it has been shown that there is a very good alternative. Want to know more about natural support as an alternative to ritalin. Then read more about LTO3
My own school period with ADDAt school, I always thought I was different. I couldn't listen to the teacher, didn't find it all interesting, I was drawing, looking for action, looking outside etc. Anything that could stimulate my brain even a little bit, I was looking for that. I made a mess of it, enjoyed being sent out of class more than stupidly listening to that brain ge programming. I really didn't understand anything about school, what was I doing there, everyone seems to listen to that lame bullshit so easily. Like the eagle, I thought, "is this it now? Is this now what I am on this earth for, so boring, no excitement? I didn't understand any of it at all. People seemed to have no deeper connection with their souls. They were continuously so awake which made them so open to being programmed. I felt so different, my intuition/instincts were constantly in connection with my brain.
In primary school, I still held up reasonably well. I got away with my behaviour. Fortunately, I could let off steam there and it was quite fun. Especially in the breaks, I could find my feet. I climbed on the roof of the school, in trees etc. With friends in the street, we were also outside every day and had the greatest fun. That time was fantastic!In high school, however, I had to give in. It was no longer possible to continue like this. Again, I was more concerned with getting expelled. I was looking for action, I was going crazy in class. This can't be true people, can it? Sitting in a chair for hour after hour listening to this nonsense, where did I end up? Are you all sometimes a bunch of computers who don't think for yourselves? Every time something was explained, I didn't know what was expected of me. Always I was again the one who had not listened. Like the eagle, I looked for the thrills, for the adventure but I got no responses back from others. I became more and more lonely and depressed. Is this now what life has to offer? Yet somewhere deep inside me, I always managed to retain the feeling that I was not crazy. After all, I had so many talents and could do so much, it just couldn't be that there was something wrong with me. My brain wasn't made for all that nonsense. All that nonsense talk that is taken as convincing truth by the "normal brain" and stored directly in a lobe somewhere in the brain. That way of acquiring knowledge does not involve feeling/instinct or intuition. The teacher tells us so, so it is so. I have always had my own view on everything. Very stubborn perhaps as I was often told, but in my opinion a very good trait. Intelligence, in my opinion, comes not only from the mind of your brain but also from your soul. The soul controls the body and brain. That way how you sense things and the development of your intuition, that is in my opinion a much greater intelligence than just blindly storing everything somewhere in the brain and then doing nothing with that knowledge. I call it polluting the brain. When you have a highly developed sense then you can achieve so much. You just know how things should be done, you feel it and you can often do things immediately provided people don't start telling you how to do it, because then we don't succeed. Earlier I described that I always felt I was different, as if I had this deeper awareness that made me perceive differently for my case. I couldn't understand why others didn't have this. Every time, I was forced to do things the way I was told to do them. I didn't understand, kept doing things wrong and it all took 10 times as long for me to master something. That came across as pretty stupid. However, it turned out time and again that when I did not follow instructions, but did things exactly as I felt they should be done, I was 10 times faster than others. I mastered things immediately. Had trouble with few things, I understood everything immediately, got everything right away and was often the best at many things. At that point, there were no limits for me. As if I already possess all the knowledge to be able to do something. I just feel it, I see it in front of me and then I execute it. That's that power of the theta or ADD / ADHD brain. Quite logical that we are so easily bored. We are eagles, hosted by programmed chickens (Seen as a metaphor!);(with all due respect, by the way, to all the people who don't have the thetabrain possess; This predominant group of the population is also very important, also have very nice traits, qualities and talents) Make no mistake about that.
The consequences for the ADD and ADHD personMany characteristics of ADD and ADHD are purely deep frustrations that have crept into the brain as patterns. Patterns that are then repeated day in and day out so you don't have to relearn everything every day. Unfortunately, this applies to both helpful and unhelpful patterns. In ADDs and ADHDs, therefore, brain secondary complaints and disorders ingrained of which most have no knowledge at all. They have become convinced of their disorder with all its consequences. The symptoms only get worse especially if you also put your focus on it every day. This has become an unconscious unhelpful pattern that the brain executes 24/7. Something you can therefore take control of yourself again by shifting your focus and creating new positive neurology. You can read about this in more detail on the page about neuroplasticity.
Remember that what you give energy to is getting bigger. It is very simple, focus on positive things and they will slowly start getting bigger in your life!From an early age, we run the risk of developing our brains unhelpfully, with all the consequences that entails. Nor is it so crazy to consider that you hear so many people with ADD and ADHD say they work below their level, that sooner or later they become depressed or develop burnout. They are so smart, understand so much, have so many talents, such a highly developed emotional life, such strong intuition, are creative, have humour, etc. Unfortunately, in many cases, they cannot find their niche anywhere. Wherever you are, everywhere your ADD / ADHD brain is expected to be awake and functioning in the beta state so that it is open to be easily programmed with a programme that is incomprehensible to us.

LTO3, proven positive in ADD, ADHD and HSP
On this page, I try to inform you as comprehensively and objectively as possible about LTO3. This 100% natural product, which originated in Canada, now appears to have given tens of thousands of people, mainly with ADD, ADHD, HSP and ASD, a more positive life in the Netherlands too. For instance in the areas of concentration, fussiness in the head, mood, overstimulation and stress resistance.
People who were stuck for years and had symptoms due to ADD, ADHD, HSP, ASD, or in general suffered from concentration problems and restlessness, consistently tell me they have a better life thanks to LTO3. Some people were even able to stop taking ADHD medication.
Through the website and Facebook page, I personally receive many positive experiences about LTO3. I also get a lot of questions. You will therefore find answers to frequently asked questions, in addition to all the information about LTO3. New questions and answers continue to be added.
What is LTO3?
LTO3 is a 100% natural supplement sourced from Canada. It is ecologically produced which has even higher standards than organic. It possesses 3 ingredients that are of the highest possible purity and quality and collectively provide a synergetic effect on each other. This means that they reinforce each other's effects. In Canada, LTO3 has been used for over 10 years for people with ADD and ADHD, as well as for burn-out, general concentration problems, mood problems and stress. Meanwhile, in the Netherlands, Belgium and neighbouring countries, more and more people with ADD, ADHD, ODD and ASD, but also high sensitivity and complaints such as anxiety, burn-out and gloominess respond very well to LTO3. For many of them, it turns out LTO3 a safe natural alternative to stimulant ADHD medication such as Ritalin and Concerta. Many people even report that LTO3 enabled them to stop taking ADHD medication altogether.
For what complaints does LTO3 help?
It turns out that for most people, LTO3 helps positively with symptoms such as attention problems, hyperactivity, lack of concentration, busy-headedness, stress, feeling unreal/absent, overstimulation, restlessness, gloom, insomnia, anxiety and nervousness. In addition, many people say they suffer less from their anxiety disorder, addiction, depression and burnout. This is also evidenced by the huge amount of LTO3 experiences that I get sent. Many people tell me that their lives have changed significantly positively thanks to LTO3. Sometimes for themselves and sometimes for their children. Below are some of the reactions I have received. If you want to try it yourself, you can Order LTO3 here.
Hi, I have been taking LTO3 for 3 months now and it has helped me a lot, I feel calmer and more cheerful, less concentration problems and much less tension. Because I have fibromyalgia I notice that my muscles are also less tense; unfortunately the pain is not gone and for sleeping I still take something supplementary regularly. After years of medication that made me drowsy, this is a world of difference!
My daughter had theory exams last week and took 2 pills hours beforehand and felt super calm and is now also taking lto3 because she also suffers a lot from concentration problems. Greetings, Loes Reijnen
Who uses LTO3?
LTO3 appears to be widely swallowed by both adults and children with ADD, ADHD, ASD, ODD and HSP and generally people with concentration problems, stress and agitation. People with burnout, depression and anxiety symptoms also report benefits from LTO3. Sometimes people take it alongside their medication or slowly reduce their medication. Some people switch to LTO3 because they are afraid of medication or because they cannot stand the side effects.
There also appear to be many parents who would rather not give stimulant medication to their children at a young age. Many of these indicate that LTO3 offers a solution. Indeed, LTO3 can safe from 3 years of age are given and very often turn out to be tremendously successful and cause no side effects.
In addition, there are many people who try LTO3 without a diagnosis. For example, they have had severe complaints of concentration, restlessness, crowded head and insomnia for years. You can go here for a poll on LTO3, in which I did a little research on the use of LTO3 among people.
Practices, therapists and healthcare facilities about LTO3
Nice to know that more and more practices, therapists and coaches have become convinced of the positive effects of LTO3. Some recommend LTO3 meanwhile to their clients with ADD, ADHD and HSP, among others. See, for example, this interview about LTO3 with a psychologist who works at the ADHD institute or this Interview with a paediatrician who recommends LTO3 to adults and children with concentration disorders, among other things. They both speak highly of LTO3 and see significantly positive changes in their clients.

They are the official and authorised distributor of LTO3 in Europe and are based in the Netherlands under the name of SmartVital.

Buying LTO3, discounts and aftercare

Even after purchase, they help you where necessary. My experience is positive with them and I am always helped well.
LTO3 is a protected product and has been granted intellectual passport. As a result, it will also not be milked by a variety of commercial companies. The price of an LTO3 jar is fixed at 39.50 euros. You won't find it cheaper. However, there is an option at the supplier to LTO3 to order at a discount. Thing is, if you order more than 6 jars in a 90-day period, you will get FULL ORDERER status. In the following 90 days, you will then automatically receive 10% discount on all your orders. In this way, regular customers who take LTO3 regularly always get the 10% discount. For orders of 50 euros (2 jars) or more, you also pay no shipping costs.
CAUTION: Update December 2019 - There appear to be confusing products being sold on the market. Some of these even use (partly) the same name as the Original LTO3 from Herb-e-Concept. The label on the jar, on the other hand, is clearly distinguishable from the original LTO3. You can see the original LTO3 pictured in the images here on the page.
Be aware that these products cannot be compared to the original LTO3. Not only is the quality much lower, but none of them contain the Sementis Complex. Sementis contains very pure ecological fish oil as well as vitamin C, zinc and selenium, among others, and is precisely the most potent ingredient in Herb-e-concept's LTO3.
Sometimes I am told by people that LTO3 does not work, but in reality it often turns out that they have bought the wrong / imitation product. You are of course free to try what you want but be aware of this.
Want to make sure you buy the right original LTO3 from Herb-e-Concept that benefits so many people? Then buy LTO3 from the authorised distributor. You are then sure to receive the original LTO3 at the lowest possible price. This is the LTO3 that benefits so many people.
Frequently asked questions about LTO3
Do you have questions about LTO3 or are looking for more information? With the handy table of contents below you will quickly find the information you are looking for. Just click on the question and you will automatically scroll to the answer.
1. What are the advantages and disadvantages of LTO3?
You probably know that ADHD medication like Ritalin and Concerta can often cause unpleasant side effects such as palpitations, anxiety, nausea, fatigue, headaches, significant weight loss, etc. This is a reason for many people to discontinue the use of these drugs. The advantage of the natural remedy LTO3 over regular ADD and ADHD medication is that side effects almost never occur. In some cases, people do appear to experience some reactions from the body in the first few days. This is usually the case with highly sensitive people. Complaints may then worsen somewhat in the first few days before the positive effect of LTO3 occurs.
Another big advantage of LTO3 is that people do not appear to experience a rebound effect. This effect almost always occurs with chemical medication such as Ritalin and Concerta. The rebound effect means that symptoms temporarily worsen when the medication wears off.
Known benefits of LTO3
- Turns out to have a very positive effect for many people on characteristic complaints and symptoms that occur mainly in ADD, ADHD, ASD and high sensitivity.
- Has proved a godsend for many people for complaints such as attention problems, hyperactivity, lack of concentration, stress, feeling unreal, overstimulation, restlessness, gloom, nerves and nervousness.
- Turns out to be a good natural replacement for stimulant medication such as Ritalin and Concerta for considerably many people. People report that they were allowed and able to stop taking medication completely.
- Has often proven to be a positive remedy with a calming effect for people with anxiety disorder, addiction and/or burnout as well.
- Knows no contraindications and is safe to use alongside your current medication or any other (homeopathic) remedies.
- Almost never causes side effects. Occasionally, it has been found that highly sensitive people may experience some side effects in the first few days, which usually disappear quickly.
- Gives no rebound effect (Worsening of symptoms after working out).
- Is 100% natural and not addictive.
- Works within 30 - 40 minutes.
- Has a long-lasting effect of 8 - 12 hours during the day.
- Can be used safely by anyone from 3 years old.
Known disadvantages of LTO3
Disadvantages of LTO3 that people mention is mainly the price. LTO3 is not cheap but again that has its reasons. LTO3 is made from high-quality pure and natural ingredients. This comes at a high cost. Depending on the amount of capsules you take per day, you will be able to use it for about 4 weeks, at 3 per day. Some people skip weekends, for example, and then do 6 weeks with it. Children often take only 2 capsules and therefore last longer.
Another drawback is that especially highly sensitive people appear to experience some side effects in the first few days. This may be due, among other things, to the antioxidant effect that cleanses the body. For highly sensitive people, it is sometimes advisable to start with a lower dose of 1 or 2 capsules and let these temporary side effects take their course. These side effects are usually not very severe and of a temporary nature.
Lastly, LTO3 does not work for 100% of people. It has been found that LTO3 works positively for about 95% of people. In some, the effect is stronger than in others. Compared to Ritalin, which works in about 70% of people, it is not a bad percentage, but keep that in mind. Another thing to take into account is that LTO3 does not always work on the first day. So don't immediately think it doesn't work. There are plenty of people who say that LTO3 started working after a few weeks. This will also have to do with the extent to which your body has to get used to it. So give your body time to get used to LTO3. For most people, LTO3 turns out to have a positive effect later on.
2. What does LTO3 do?
The natural substances in LTO3 increase dopamine and serotonin neurotransmitters in the brain, among others. Dopamine is involved in the feeling of bliss and it prompts us to be active. Serotonin is the neurotransmitter that causes calmness, balance, inner peace, contentment and mental well-being. Dopamine in particular is known to be less available to people with ADHD and ADD.
LTO3 also provides a calming effect on the nervous system. This is mainly due to the ingredient gl herb that is added. This reduces stress, anxiety, nervousness and tension (including psychological stress). In children with ADHD who are physically restless, LTO3 has often been shown to have a calming effect and has been shown to help with better sleep.
It turns out that LTO3 mainly owes its special effect to the 3 ingredients that together in the right dosage reinforce each other's effect. This is also known as a synergistic effect.
For an increasing number of people with ADD and ADHD, as well as highly sensitive people, LTO3 is proving to be an excellent pharmaceutical alternative. In addition, people with anxiety complaints, gloominess, stress, tension and addiction also report benefits.
At question 16 you will find further information about the ingredients in LTO3 and how it works.
3. Where can I buy LTO3 and are discounts available?
You can Ordering LTO3 through the supplier SmartVital. They are the official distributor of LTO3 and the only one to dispense it in the Netherlands and surrounding countries.

4. LTO3 dosage and when to take and when to sleep better?
It is best to take the capsules on an empty stomach at least 10 minutes before breakfast. It is better not to take LTO3 with dairy products or products to which sugars have been added. Avoid dairy products for at least 10 minutes after taking them, as they may hinder the optimal functioning of LTO3. It is better to avoid sugars for at least an hour after intake.
Natural sugars such as honey and thick juice are not a problem. Applesauce, for instance, is also fine as long as no extra sugars are added. You can have breakfast with bread toppings such as cold cuts, honey, sugar-free apple/pear syrup, sugar-free jam, sugar-free peanut butter, sugar-free sprinkles, sugar-free coconut bread, etc.
The dosage goes by body weight:
- Up to 45 kg: 2 capsules in the morning before breakfast. This dose appears to be sufficient for 45% of children. For small children aged 3-4 and highly sensitive children, 1 capsule is often enough. You can slowly build this up to 2 capsules if necessary.
- Over 45 kg: 3 capsules in the morning before breakfast. Highly sensitive people are advised to start with 1-2 capsules a day. You can slowly build this up to 3 capsules after a few days.
Towards the end of the afternoon, you may choose to take 1-2 more capsules for the evening effect. This is a personal choice.
Using LTO3 for insomnia to sleep better
Using LTO3 to sleep better? If so, it is best to take the capsules about 1 hour before bedtime. You can start with 1 capsule the first night(s) and build up to 3 capsules according to your needs.
How can LTO3 help you sleep better if it also makes you more alert?
This sounds contradictory but it actually makes perfect sense. Resting your brain during the day gives you the mental focus to concentrate better and feel relaxed. This calmness also allows your brain in the evening to produce substances like melatonin normally. This melatonin makes you sleepy. If your brain remains busy and chaotic in the evening, melatonin production is very poor. You may lie awake for hours before falling asleep. This is why it is always recommended not to do anything in the evening until just before you go to bed and not to sit at your computer or on your phone. This disrupts melatonin production and therefore sleep.
5. How fast does LTO3 work and does it always work?
For most people, the effect of LTO3 is noticeable as early as the first day. But it can also take several weeks. The effect is optimal after a few weeks. In rare cases, it can even take 6-8 weeks for the effect to take effect. So you can draw a definitive conclusion only after 2 months. In less than 5% of cases, LTO3 has no effect at all.
The effects of LTO3 can be felt within 30 to 40 minutes and the duration of action is 8 to 12 hours.
6. Swallow or mix LTO3 capsules and can it be done with milk and sugar?
Take LTO3 10 minutes before breakfast on an empty stomach. You can just swallow LTO3 with some water but you can also choose to open them up and mix them with, say, a little bit of apple sauce. That's no problem. But always without added sugars. Natural sugars are allowed. Some people like this when they have trouble swallowing the capsules. The LTO3 tasteless (no taste) capsules developed. You can read more about LTO3 flavourless below in section 7.
It is best not to take LTO3 with dairy products or products to which sugars have been added. Avoid these products at least until 10 minutes after intake as they could interfere with the optimal functioning of LTO3. (It is best to avoid sugars for at least one hour after intake) Natural sugars such as those in honey or thick juice are not a problem. Even applesauce is fine as long as no extra sugars have been added. You can have breakfast with all types of bread with cold cuts, honey, sugar-free apple/pear syrup, sugar-free jam, sugar-free peanut butter, sugar-free sprinkles, sugar-free coconut bread, etc. The amount of sugar in bread is negligible. Incidentally, there are plenty of people who say that these products do not interfere with the effect of LTO3 at all. But keep it in mind.
7. What is LTO3 flavourless 'No Taste'?
For people who have difficulty swallowing the capsules, there is special LTO3 'No Taste' (flavourless) developed. The effect is the same but the structure of the fish extract is different so there is no taste. This way, you don't get nasty side tastes when you open the capsule to mix in water or apple sauce, for example. LTO3 no taste does not contain Sementis, but contains another very high-quality fish oil complex of extreme purity. You will find the exact differences of the fish extract further on in question 16.
8. How many LTO3 capsules are in a jar and how long do you do with them?
There are 90 capsules in a jar of LTO3. Most people use this for 1 month. This is when using 3 capsules a day. If you choose to skip the weekend, for example, you can use it for 6 weeks. Children under 45 kilos who only need 2 capsules daily can thus use a jar of LTO3 for over 2 months.
9. Does LTO3 work for everyone?
Unfortunately, there is no single drug that works for everyone. Ritalin, for example, only works for 70% of people with ADD and ADHD, but so does a group of 30% not. That's how it is with all medicines and drugs. There are always people who do not benefit from something. Of all natural remedies, LTO3 seems so far to be the one that offers the best results. For many people even a better result than Ritalin or Concerta.
The many positive LTO3 experiences that I was personally sent confirm this. More and more psychologists and coaches are also talking about it. Here you can see an interview with a psychologist about LTO3. She has had very good experiences with it and offers it as first choice for her clients with ADD and ADHD instead of pharmaceutical medication.
LTO3 has been found to give a positive result in about 95% of people. The strength of this result varies from person to person. If you do not notice any effect after a few weeks, it is best to increase the dose. In most cases, LTO3 then still works. A definitive conclusion can only be drawn after 6 to 8 weeks. It is also best to discuss this with the distributor who will expertly assist you in finding the right dosage and can answer your further questions.
In this poll on LTO3 you can see that a lot of people are already using LTO3 on a daily basis.
10. Can LTO3 be taken during pregnancy / lactation?
In principle, LTO3 can simply be taken during pregnancy and breastfeeding. It is always wise to discuss it with a doctor first. LTO3 contains L-Theanine, which increases dopamine and serotonin levels in the brain, as well as fish oil and Blue Skullcap. If the doctor doesn't think this is a problem, you can just take it.
11. Can LTO3 be taken alongside other medicines and drugs?
LTO3 combines well with all types of medication, homeopathic and other natural remedies. It is best to take these at least 30 minutes after the morning dose of LTO3. This has been proven by long-term use (more than 10 years) of LTO3 in Canada. No contraindications have ever occurred with any other drugs and medications. At antidepressants are recommended to be taken after at least 2 hours after taking the LTO3.
Many people start taking LTO3 alongside their current ADHD medication, after which, in many cases, they find they can reduce the use of their stimulant medication. When you find that LTO3 works well for you, it is best to slowly phase out any ADHD medication or other drugs in consultation with your doctor.
12. Is LTO3 reimbursed?
LTO3 is registered as a dietary supplement in the Netherlands and therefore will unfortunately not be reimbursed by most health insurers (yet). But thanks to its great success, it seems that health insurers sometimes change their mind about reimbursing it. Of course, it also helps if they then no longer have to reimburse you for pharmaceutical medication.
It has been found that currently PNOzorg reimburses LTO3 when you have supplementary insurance. The condition is that LTO3 is prescribed by a doctor. You may be able to get this done with your GP or perhaps a private psychologist/therapist. You don't have to expect much support from mainstream mental health services. They have their protocols to follow in which the use of pharmaceutical drugs is paramount. Very unfortunate, but let's just hope this might change in the future.
To be on the safe side, always contact your health insurer and just ask about reimbursement for LTO3. You can provide the ZI numbers below when doing so. Your health insurer can then present you with the possibilities of possible reimbursement.
ZI numbers LTO3:
- For LTO3 regular: 15855015
- For LTO3 no taste (tasteless): 15855023
13. Where can I find LTO3 user experiences?
I increasingly receive experiences of people with ADD and ADHD, as well as highly sensitive people and people with ODD and on the autistic spectrum, taking LTO3 themselves or their children. I also receive experiences from people with other complaints including depression, anxiety, fatigue and similar complaints. In considerably many cases, they turn out to be very positive and satisfied with the effect of LTO3 on their daily lives. All these LTO3 experiences sent to me can be found via the link below:
14. Are there any articles in the media about LTO3?
Definitely! And more and more will follow. As soon as I come across something in newspapers, magazines or whatever, I post it on the website. The links below will send you to pages with articles about LTO3 from the media:
15. LTO3 doesn't seem to be catching on, now what?
Contact the supplier of LTO3. You can just go there in Dutch. My personal experience is that they are very knowledgeable in helping you find the right dosage. They don't leave you out in the cold and guide you through the whole process after buying your LTO3.
Often, LTO3 still turns out to work but sometimes it can take several weeks, up to 8 weeks even in very rare cases. Sometimes only the dosage needs to be adjusted. The link below will take you to the supplier of LTO3.
Also make sure you take LTO3 at least 10 minutes before breakfast on an empty stomach and do not take it at the same time as dairy products or products to which sugars have been added. It is best to avoid these products for at least 10 minutes and sugars best for at least 1 hour after taking them as they can somewhat interfere with the optimal functioning of LTO3. Natural sugars such as in honey and thick juice are not a problem.
16. Ingredients, composition and action of LTO3?
LTO3 contains 3 ingredients that have a synergistic effect on each other. This is to say that in the right dosage together, they enhance each other's effect. This is a special property of LTO3 that makes the positive effect felt strongly. The table below shows the exact quantity of the ingredients in LTO3. Further below, you can read more detailed information about the different ingredients in LTO3 and what they do.
Ingredients Per 100 g Per 2 capsules Per 3 capsules Sementis* 29,8 g 200 mg 300mg 5-N-ethyl-L-glutamine
29,8 g 200 mg 300mg Blue Skullcap 14,9 g 100 mg 150 mg LTO3 ingredients and composition capsules
* Sementis is a registered trademark of OCEAN NUTRASCIENCES and contains 21% to 32% oceanic DNA. It also contains polynucleotide, Omega-3/-6 EPA & DHA, arginine, phospholipid, selenium, zinc and vitamin C
L-Theanine is an amino acid derived from another amino acid, L-Glutamine, and is 100% pure. It increases the dopamine levels (the neurotransmitter of pleasure and reward) and the serotonin level (the main neurotransmitter inhibitor) in the brain, which are severely reduced in stress and overexertion. L-Theanine easily crosses the haematological-encephalopathic barrier and induces a calming effect in the brain. In addition, L-Theanine also protects the brain against neurotoxicity induced by glutamate, which is a major factor in degenerative diseases.
L-Theanine leads to relaxation without causing drowsiness, which is verifiable because the brain produces more alpha waves. Research shows that this improves the brain's ability to concentrate. Unlike caffeine, it increases GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) levels in the brain; GABA is a neurotransmitter that contributes to relaxation and a sense of well-being. It is quickly absorbed by the small intestine and is transported directly to the brain.
A target dose is between 50 and 200 mg. It takes only 30 to 40 minutes to feel awakened and become alert. This mental and emotional state lasts for about 8 to 12 hours. L-Theanine would be perfect for people with sleep disorders who find it difficult to fall asleep or are tired after waking up. In that case, take one or two capsules an hour before going to bed.
In summary, the beneficial effects of L-Theanine are mainly: sharpens the mind, relaxes without making you drowsy, improves learning ability and concentration, reduces stress and anxiety, promotes the ability to sleep well, reduces the side effects of caffeine, enhances immune system responses and reduces symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
Some studies show that L-Theanine could be effective in lowering cholesterol levels and high blood pressure.
Regular LTO3 contains Sementis. In LTO3 flavourless (No Taste), which is mainly used by people who open the capsules to mix into some apple sauce, for example, there is a fish oil powder. Read more about the further details of the fish oil in LTO3 below.
Sementis (In regular LTO3)
Sementis is a a registered trademark of OCEAN NUTRASCIENCES. It is a 100% pure extract of wild herring roe from the Atlantic Ocean. It is therefore not from farmed fish. Wild fish roe contains large amounts of oceanic DNA (21-31%). This powerful antioxidant has powerful medicinal effects on both emotional and physical fatigue.
Sementis complex is full of other antioxidants such as vitamin C (404 ± 150 µg/100g), zinc (10 - 60 µg/100g) and selenium (0.1 - 2.0 µg/100g). The Western diet does not provide enough Omega-3 and contains too much Omega-6, which is stored by the body. Sementis provides an ideal ratio of Omega3 to Omega6 fatty acids (36:1); Omega3 : 28.6%, Omega6 :0.8%. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA):8.3% Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA):20.2%
Studies show that Omega-3 fatty acids are effective beneficial in treating depression, schizophrenia and anorexia nervosa.
Fish oil concentrate from MEG-3® (tasteless in LTO3)
LTO3 flavourless is specially designed for people who have difficulty swallowing the capsules. This is because they can easily be opened and mixed with something liquid. The advantage is then that you won't experience any unpleasant side tastes.
MEG-3® fish oil extract is encapsulated in microscopic capsules via the Powder-loc? Micro-encapsulation method with a double-encapsulation system. This preserves the active elements EPA and DHA, the properties of the fish oil and the purest and best source of Omega 3, while the typical taste and fish odour are hardly noticeable. It is a high quality pure fish oil extract of tuna from ecological fishing. Guaranteed without heavy metals or toxins.
The effect of LTO3 flavourless is almost the same as regular LTO3 but the composition of a capsule is somewhat different. The table below shows you the composition of LTO3 flavourless capsules:
Ingredients Per 100 g Per 2 capsules Per 3 capsules Fish oil concentrate MEG-3* 39,9 g 300 mg 450 mg Omega-3/-6 fatty acids 6,7 g 50 mg 75 mg 5-N-ethyl-L-glutamine
26,6 g 200 mg 300 mg Blue Skullcap 13,3 g 100 mg 150 mg LTO3 tasteless ingredients and composition capsules
* MEG-3® is a refined, extremely pure and flavourless fish oil concentrate with Omega-3 and 6 fatty acids and anti-oxidant oceanic DNA encapsulated by Powder-loc?
Skullcap (scutellaria laterifolia), the aboveground part of the plant, serves to support the nervous system and is used to reduce stress, nervousness and anxiety. It has a calming effect on physical restlessness and improves sleep

- About me and ADDcharacteristics.net
Dear ADD, ADHD and HSP peopleI am Jochem, the founder and lead writer of ADDcharacteristics.net. During my lifetime, I was diagnosed with ADD. After that, the labels HSP (High Sensitive Person) and HSS (High Sensation Seeker) also came to me. In 2011, I started this website to offer a more positive sound for people with labels like ADD, ADHD and HSP. What I often noticed is the huge dose of negativity around AD(H)D and HSP. ADDcharacteristics.net highlights precisely those bright sides too. Besides the necessary positivity, you will find plenty of tips and advice, but also inspiring and informative articles. Sometimes written by me and sometimes by one of the fantastic guest bloggers. Many of the guest bloggers have been diagnosed with AD(H)D or are Highly Sensitive themselves. As a result, the articles are often a breath of fresh air of recognition. What is also much loved are the recognisable submitted life stories of fellow AD(H)D'ers and HSP'ers. Over the years, I have learned an incredible amount and have become an expert not only in the field of ADD, ADHD and HSP, but also on topics such as self-healing, nutrition and NLP. Through this website, I try to help you on your way to a better life in which you are empowered and can live fully from your true self. Below you can read more about my life story and my journey to balance. You can also read about all the struggles I encountered along the way and why I started this website.
Do you recognise this?Your head keeps thinking. You feel restless, cannot concentrate on anything, get bored easily and are easily overstimulated. In addition, you seem to possess an intuitive wisdom that others do not. A kind of feeling as if your consciousness is operating on a different frequency. You can't explain everything when asked 'why', you just feel it. A personal aspect that I have also always carried with me is that I try to solve everything that is not right in the world. All the lies, misery, power games. I can take it very badly when I see injustice. I want to fix it all. As if it is my mission to help the whole world where I always make too little time for myself. On the one hand, maybe a nice trait but on the other hand, a pitfall because it takes a lot of energy. Especially in a world as it is being shaped today.
My story...The past few years have been a long journey of awareness for me. I have been very involved in self-healing through nutrition, alternative medicine, epigenetics, natural supplements, NLP and mindfulness. In the process, I have learned all kinds of things and seen a variety of therapists, alternative healers, coaches, doctors and psychologists, and I have spoken to many fellow ADDs, ADHDs and HSPs. I also read a number of inspiring and helpful books (not my strong suit, haha). The biggest reason for this long search was that in (June 2009), I was suddenly afflicted overnight with CFS/ME, or chronic fatigue syndrome. This was a major turning point in my life that ensured I really had to start working on myself from now on. How I was living until then was obviously not the right way. I had been living all those years in a way of always going on and not complaining. Suppressing and hiding my symptoms and surviving on adrenaline. It soon became clear that just taking rest was not going to make me better. My life was slowly being taken over by this severe fatigue with all the accompanying complaints. For me, it felt like I literally had to 'reset' in order to recover.
Early years at school and the development of complaintsIn retrospect, the CFS/ME I just mentioned was a process that had already started in my adolescence. I think the underlying reason for my CFS/ME was the increasing imbalance in my body and mind due to ADD and high sensitivity, which I found difficult to deal with. Always tiptoeing around me, being easily overstimulated, little motivation and a brain that doesn't stop thinking. Somehow, I just couldn't find my niche at school either. You know the sayings. You can do it but you don't want to. In primary school, I got through it and that was actually a really fun time too. High school became a bigger problem. I really wondered why everyone was so good at listening to that 'brainwash'. At least that's how I saw it. I was just looking for action, interesting stimuli and learning which enlarged my soul. In retrospect, that was really my AD(H)D side. I was not looking for knowledge that stores itself in a lobe of the brain and that decays when you die. From the age of 14, I started developing symptoms like depersonalisation, tinnitus, fatigue, dizziness, brooding, depression, social anxiety and so on. I don't remember exactly what started it first but probably because of one thing came another. Perhaps it also had to do with the fact that I felt little 'real' connection with other children. This while as a child I was always very cheerful and adventurous and always full of energy. Climbing trees, on roofs, bicycle racing and so on. In childhood, I was really more of an ADHD'er, haha. Things could never be crazy enough for me. Yes, an adrenaline junky I was. That kept me going even in my adolescence. My biggest outlet back then was freestyle snowboarding. The adrenaline kept me on my toes and relatively happy at that time. I also worked in various jobs, from catering to tuk-tuk driver to on-call stuntman for a stunt team. Everything to keep feeling that adrenaline that made me calm. This allowed me to feel no symptoms such as overstimulation, the constantly running thoughts, restlessness, insecurity, etc.
Broken upper leg and trip through Australia/AsiaTo make matters worse, when I was 21, I broke my upper leg in a snowboarding accident. Just a few months before I was supposed to go to Australia for a year. Fortunately, that did go ahead, despite the fact that I was in a lot of pain for the first few months there and had to leave a lot behind. Halfway through, I flew over to New Zealand for a few more weeks and at the end of the year I went to work in the snow in Australia's snowy mountains. I worked there in a hostel and as a dishwasher in a restaurant. In addition, I could be found snowboarding on the mountain every day. After this year, I flew via Hong-Kong where I stayed for a week to Bangkok and spent another three months backpacking through South-East Asia through the countries of Thailand, Laos and Cambodia. I really liked that free feeling of going wherever you want and not having to take anything or anyone into account. If I liked it somewhere I stayed, if not I left again. The most free feeling I had was when I rented a motorbike in Thailand and went on an adventure. Always taking every road I didn't know, which brought me to the most beautiful places and beaches. During my backpacking trip, for the first time in my life, I met very inspiring and nice people with whom I really connected. Like in terms of depth, humour, creativity, etc. I would safely say that most of the backpackers you meet in those countries could almost all carry labels like ADD, ADHD and high sensitivity, for example. Anyway, it was a very special time!
The beginning of CFS/ME and many operationsAfter returning from my trip, severe fatigue began to set in within a year. It was not yet CFS/ME, as I could still work as usual. I remember exactly how, after several months, CFS/ME kicked in overnight. As if something had 'changed' in my system so that I no longer rested from sleep and had to recover for days from every little exertion. Maybe I had also contracted something like lyme or some parasite. I don't know. Extensive blood tests were never allowed to show anything, only that I had antibodies for Pheiffer, but that could have been from years ago. However, a therapist from live blood tests did tell me that I would have candida in my blood. At the time, apart from a short diet, I never really did anything with that. Unfortunately, it could all be worse because despite the fact that I could barely walk due to the fatigue caused by CFS/ME, my concentration had now really dropped to a 0-point as far as it could get worse and I felt like my brain had become a grey mass that only made my organs work so as not to drop dead, from then on I had an operation to repair my leg length difference. This leg length difference had occurred due to the fracture. In addition, the screws had broken in Australia, causing an additional more than half a cm of shortening. Something my doctors, by the way, had sworn what could not happen. No matter how hard I would jump or do, the screws would never break! Well, they don't know me yet, you might think. If there is anyone who always pushes the limit and preferably crosses it, it is me. Anyway, this became the beginning of 3 years of drama in which I had to undergo a total of 8 major operations. You get the picture, the extreme fatigue that had already taken over my life now became even worse. I am not one to throw in the towel. So despite everything, I wanted to keep moving and started studying SPH (social pedagogical assistance). How I did it, I don't know, because there was no real human existence left, as I was literally a dried-up zombie manoeuvring through school on crutches all those months. Still, I got good grades and wrote good theses and reports. Sometimes it seems like a kind of 'primal drive' is released in me when I am struggling. As if that's when it really becomes a challenge. That may be my AD(H)D side, which I think is actually a very nice characteristic. Unfortunately, I was forced to quit this study after 3/4 years. Well, if at a certain point you fall down and lie on the floor shaking and feel like you could die at any moment of the day, you do wonder whether you should continue like this. In retrospect, I now understand why my leg did not want to recover immediately from the 1st leg-lengthening operation. A body with CFS/ME is in a continuous chronic stress state. That means the sympathetic nervous system is activated 24/7. In that state, your body does not heal and you only produce adrenaline. You are ready to fight or flee but this of course completely burns up all the reserves you have in you. When your system calms down and your parasympathetic nervous system is activated, your body can heal itself. Well, unfortunately these are all things I found out later and they don't care about in the hospital. I had asked them so many times, "Doctor, is it wise to do this leg lengthening now since I feel so extremely tired every day?" The answer every time was that it could not be a problem.
A journey to awareness, healing and recoveryFortunately, I am now recovering very well from all the symptoms and my energy level is now almost normal (June 2015 time of writing). This also resulted in my thigh bone finally starting to grow together. By now, my thigh bone has been growing really well for a year and I am able to longboard regularly. Snowboarding I also did again once. As long as I don't exert too much effort, I don't fall back into fatigue and my leg pulls through just fine. As you now understand, this healing could also only happen because I returned my body to rest which you will read more about below. In terms of my CFS/ME, things are going very well now provided I don't fall back into old patterns. I need regular time for myself and just shouldn't try to live like others do at all costs. I'm just not like that and I actually like that. If I stay with myself and my diet persists, it goes well! By the way, the same goes for other complaints I always had due to my ADD and HSP such as overstimulation, unclearness, fog in the head, concentration problems and restlessness. People often really have no idea what food does to you. I also benefited greatly for a while from the natural supplement LTO3. Meanwhile, more and more people with ADD and ADHD are taking it. I prefer to do it without taking anything, so I focus mainly on meditation exercises, NLP and nutrition. LTO3 is also quite pricey, but if you can afford it, I definitely recommend giving it a try. Here I wrote a full page of information about it. To recover, I did have to learn a lot about myself. That's why I went to just about every therapist, coach but also alternative healer you can think of. And yes, this has cost me loads of money! I think I could have bought a very nice car by now. Unfortunately, a lot of the alternative healers were quackery and, to be honest, just plain pickpocketing, which didn't help me at all. But yes, I wanted to get rid of the CFS/ME at all costs and felt desperate. There were days when I could only go up and down the stairs once after which I had to recover for the rest of the day, or several days. Seeing a friend for 5 minutes also resulted in 3 days of rest in bed. But thanks to continuing to look for the right help and not focusing on all the negative reports, I became increasingly aware and gained a lot of valuable knowledge. These gave me very good new insights which ensured that I continued to recover from the CFS/ME. The symptoms of ADD and HSP also got better and better. The subjects I dealt with and still deal with are nutrition, meditation, alternative medicine, epigenetics, natural supplements, NLP, mindfulness, etc. Now I actually see my ADD and HSP more as a strength and can live with it much better. I also wonder if these labels are disorders in intent.
ADD and ADHD a disorder?In my opinion, the negative side of ADD and ADHD is overemphasised. We are too concerned with seeing ADD and ADHD as a disorder. In my view, this actually applies to almost all labels people are given these days. In some ways, I understand this. Of course, this is because it seems like a burden rather than a strength in our current society. Because yes, I too suffered a lot and even developed CFS/ME because of it. In fact, it has been found that 70% of people diagnosed with it in adulthood have since developed other problems as well. Many well-known external psychological disorders in ADD and ADHD are depression, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCS), anxiety disorders, personality disorders, burnout and so on. By the way, this is also common in HSP. But don't forget this. Scientists still argue about whether things like ADD and ADHD can really be named as disorders. Sure, the pharma companies do this, but then again, they make billions from it. But remember that there is nothing to measure. No blood test, no X-ray, nothing. Yes there is sometimes evidence of other brain activity. But this also appears to occur in people who experience no symptoms at all. I was told this when I underwent 10 neurofeedback treatments. Therefore, this cannot be a deciding factor and, in the end, it comes down to the fact that all these labels can only be determined on the basis of certain characteristics someone experiences. But you can also ask why this behaviour is expressed. A variety of external factors often come into play here. Factors that disturb the balance between the human body and mind. Incidentally, I had little benefit from neurofeedback at the time. Don't get me wrong, I don't want to trivialise anything at all. I have personally experienced how tough life can be and how you are confronted with your symptoms day in and day out. Half my life consisted of 'surviving' and, in fact, I still do. I was also desperate and looking for that one magic pill that could make all my symptoms disappear. But it just doesn't work like that. I even tried Ritalin and Concerta for a while but this was a no go for me! Losing weight, heart palpitations, anxiety and so on. No, for me it was clear that medication was not the way for me.
The 'robot mode'That it is very difficult these days to participate in society in a somewhat normal and pleasant way is obvious. I think we can all agree on that. We see this in the large number of growing patients in mental health care. This is running at a red-hot temperature and how much medication is being swallowed? In the Netherlands alone, 1 million people are on antidepressants and hundreds of thousands on stimulants such as Ritalin and Concerta. In America, the ratio is many times higher. It really has become alarmingly high! But why? Well, the world has become damn fast. Money, greed and power play the biggest role. Can you imagine there are people living on a different consciousness who are completely stuck in this society? At the same time, no one is asking questions about the madness we live in today. It seems like everyone has gone into a kind of robot mode and no one knows what life is really about anymore. Is now really the only thing that matters working, working, working, busy, busy, busy, money, money, money, money and buying the latest stuff?
The beginning of ADDcharacteristics.netOn the internet, I come across a lot of information about ADD and ADHD. Unfortunately, I find that it is often very negative. I myself have gained a huge amount of new information by reading books and learning from other therapists as I have described. One such book that really opened my eyes is 'The Davinci Method' by John Loporto. Yes, believe me, I used to hate reading but Loporto approaches our traits in such a beautiful way that I finished the book in one sitting. This really is a eye-opener for all people diagnosed with ADD, ADHD and adjacent diagnoses that you simply should have read. Besides my own views, which I have always held on ADD, ADHD and HSP, this book was one of the biggest inspirations for me to start the website ADDcharacteristics.net in late 2011. More about Loporto's inspiring book 'The Davinci Method' can be found here. You can also see his super inspiring video there in which he shares his message as an introduction to his book.
ADD and ADHD looked at from a positive sideUnfortunately, if you enter 'ADD' or 'ADHD' in Google, or any contemporary label, you will almost exclusively find websites that assume disorders. Entire websites are full of them and forums are filled with people who just talk each other into the doldrums and try to find support through complaining, which of course is counterproductive in the end. All looking for that one all-encompassing super pill that is going to make life perfect. All time you could have spent on yourself. So that is not my intention of this website. I don't approach all these labels as a disorder. I see it as a body getting out of balance and that starts in childhood. Also food often plays a role in this. I like to focus on anything that helps us get back into balance so that you experience fewer symptoms and can live life with joy and happiness. I also prefer to look at the possibilities and positive qualities that are often hidden behind the negative aspects of these labels. For example, think of beautiful, powerful qualities we possess such as your high awareness, your strong intuition, your drive for challenge and thrills, your days performing for 300%, your hyperfocus, your creativity, your insane ability to come up with solutions to problems, your adventurousness, your humour, your passion and so on. Strong qualities we possess in abundance, mind you! Otherwise, take a look at these 10 wonderful benefits of ADD and ADHD. Did you know that a large proportion of all celebrities such as, movie stars, rock stars, artists, inventors, dancers, artists, entrepreneurs and great leaders have been diagnosed with ADD or ADHD or very much agree with the characteristics? Check out this interesting videos about celebrities with ADD and ADHD. That does indicate the extent to which these people have a certain higher consciousness and how much can be achieved with this. These people need a passion in which they can express their energy, creativity and other special powers. Only then can they really live from who they really are and that is what you see in them!
Living from your passion and true 'I'When you regain balance, are confident and feel that spirit within yourself and can express your passion and creativity, you can be a person who is very inspiring to 'normal' people. A person with a close engagement with life, a rich emotional life, high awareness, full of creativity, a broad thinking mind, a social being, reliable, humorous and with very good intuition. The roles of feeling different will then turn. The 'sheeple' as they are often called will then see you as a strength they are only too happy to learn from. But if you keep getting stuck and often think negatively about yourself, you will become more and more negatively laden and tired and the above beautiful qualities will mostly remain in the background. In the long run, this often results in secondary psychological complaints, later even burn-out or even CVs/me as was the case with me. There are several ways to get closer to yourself again and learn to cope better with ADD, ADHD and HSP in everyday life.
