    Has anybody looked into magnesium deficiency? My dad has been researching and reading a ton about childhood mood disorders and has come across much information that magnesium deficit causes many of the same symtoms that we are all experiencing with our children.

    Hmmm, interesting. I do know that a blood test showed that my son was low on minerals, we gave him a supplement for awhile but he wouldn't take it any longer. I will investigate this. Thanks!

    Our psychiatrist has all the kids on supplements because she firmly believes that deficiencies aggravate their issues:

    Kanga is on the most...

    Citrcal Calcium Citrate with Magnesium (6 pills/day)
    Omega-3 Fish Oil (6 pills/day)

    I'll get the results of her blood tests on Thursday so we'll see whats up then.
