LINKING EAR INFECTIONS, HYPERACTIVE BEHAVIOR & FUTURE HEALTH
In an interesting review, well known nutritionist Brian Richards cites a new animal study indicating that disturbances to the ear's hearing and balance systems cause hyperactive behavior. Because such damage can occur in humans from ear infections, and since the correlation between ear infections and subsequent behavioral issues such as ADHD has been noted in the literature, Richards highlights the importance of preventing and successfully treating ear infections in children, especially utilizing nutritional insights.
According to Dr. Harold Levinson's 4+ decades of research, dyslexia or LD and related ADHD and even phobias are caused by a signaling impairment due to a dysfunction within the innerear and its supercomputer--the cerebellum. Any direct or indirect impairment to the inner-ear system, including infectious, allergic, traumatic, neoplastic causes, was noted to possibly trigger the above overlapping disorders. And inner-ear-enhancing medications and nutrients were shown helpful. Since his first research publication on dyslexia in 1973, Levinson highlighted the important role of properly treating and preventing ear and related sinus infections so as to reduce the acquired incidence and severity of inner-ear dysfunctioning in dyslexia, ADHD and a score of related but differently named disorders.
About Harold Levinson, M.D.
Formerly Clinical Associate Professor of Psychiatry at New York University Medical Center, Dr. Harold Levinson is currently Director of the Levinson Medical Center for Learning Disabilities in Great Neck, New York. He is a well known neuropsychiatrist, clinical researcher and author. His "highly original" research into the cerebellar-vestibular (inner-ear) origins and treatment of dyslexia and related learning, attention-deficit/hyperactivity and anxiety or phobic disorders has evolved over the past four decades. Levinson's concepts encompass the collective insights derived from the examinations, follow-up and successful treatment of over 35,000 children, adults and even seniors and have led to new methods of screening, diagnosis, treatment and prevention. His expanded theories appear capable of encompassing and/or explaining all reported symptoms as well as most other concepts and experimental data, thus resulting in a truly holistic perspective.
