“Why didn’t anyone tell me that years ago?!?”
Perhaps you’ve asked that question at least 542 times along your ADHD journey. IYKYK
Sarah Snyder and I met a while back and immediately hit it off in chatting about the nitty gritty of ADHD - all those lesser known symptoms, connections, and themes around ADHD. You know, all the things about your ADHD you wish someone had told you years ago.
I first joined her on her podcast, Adulting with ADHD, a few years back to talk about pregnancy and ADHD. With the tagline "Self-empowerment for people with ADHD", The Adulting With ADHD Podcast explores the intersection of ADHD, hormones, trauma, food, and more. Sarah aims to provide information for ADHD adults that's probably not in the brochure at the doctor's office.
Sarah and I chat about the intersection of chronic illness and food. Sarah shares:
In this episode, I chat with Patricia Sung, host of Motherhood in ADHD, about the intersection of chronic illness, eating and ADHD.
- Patricia's story
- The food and stress connection
- What NOT to do when you're struggling with food, chronic illness & ADHD
- What you CAN do instead
The intersection of autoimmune diseases, food allergies and food intolerances with ADHD is one of my current hyperfixations, and this episode brings you a taste of what I’ve learned over the past 3 years of eating a highly restricted elimination diet in the treatment and remission of my psoriatic arthritis, mold toxicity, and fight against autoimmune issues and inflammation.
Did the elimination diet of no sugar, gluten, dairy, soy, eggs, dyes, processed foods, etc., cure my ADHD? Listen in!
