Food as medicine

Can food be used to lessen someone’s Obsessive compulsive behavior. What about those with Attention and focusing problems. Those with attention problems appear to be under methylators. They need methyl groups for their metabolism to work. Methyl groups can be found in coffee, tea and chocolate ( methylxanthines). These methyl groups when given to someone with attention and focus problems, helps them to focus because their brain is able to make the chemicals they need to function.

Drinking coffee slowly throughout the day or drinking a caffeine containing drink slowly throughout the day could less or even eliminate the need for ritalin, stratera and concerta and other medications used to treat attention and focusing conditions. There may also be less side effects to these natural forms of treatment compared to pharmaceuticals.
