Dyslexia is a reading, writing and learning condition in which letters and numbers are reversed or even seen and written upside down. Dyslexia affects up to 25 million Americans and many others around the world. It causes low self-esteem, frustration, learning difficulties and more.
Dyslexia has affected many famous people. Those afflicted include Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, Leonardo daVinci, Walt Disney, Winston Churchill, and Hans Christian Anderson.
Many with dyslexia are far brighter than average. It is a shame they are treated as though they are 'dumb' or 'slow', when this is not true. The truth is their brains do not function quite right.
SYMPTOMS OF DYSLEXIA
Indications of dyslexia usually begin to show up around age five or six. Symptoms many include:
á Shapes or sequences of letters or numbers appear changed or reversed.
á Spelling is incorrect or inconsistent.
á Words or lines are skipped when reading or writing.
á Letters and numbers appear to move, disappear, grow or shrink.
á Punctuation marks or capital letters are omitted, ignored or not seen.
á Words and letters are omitted, altered or substituted while reading or writing.
á Some speech sounds are difficult to make or mispronounced.
á False sounds are perceived.
á The person appears to not listen or hear what is said.
á One can experience dizziness or nausea while reading.
á There is a poor sense of direction.
á Inability to sit still.
á Problems with balance and coordination.
á Hyperactivity or hypoactivity can occur due to frustration.
á Excessive daydreaming, and trouble being on time.
CAUSES OF DYSLEXIA
Recent research of ours indicates that a fungal infection can play a role in dyslexia. This is related to mineral imbalances such as copper imbalance that allow fungus to grow in the body.
A development program with one of the Approved Helpers listed on this website can help reverse and heal fungal or other infections and mineral imbalances that contribute to dyslexia. We strongly recommend that anyone with dyslexia begin a development program because results have been quite good.
Dr. Harold Levinson, MD found that some symptoms of dyslexia have to do with the inner ear and cerebellum, a part of the brain that receives signals from the sense organs before they go to the cortex of the brain.
Dr. Levinson claims he can overcome some of the symptoms using ginger, perhaps along with the over-the-counter anti-histmaine drug Pseudafed (pseudephedrine) and possibly the use of Dramamine, another over-the-counter drug used for motion sickness.
