What Is Your Predisposition to
AD/HD or Alcoholism Addiction?

The portions of the brain that largely are responsible for the personality characteristics of an individual are called the Hypothalamus and the Hippocampus. There are six subsystems within this area that are significantly "in charge".

One of them is called the opioid subsystem. It is named after the chemical it uses to communicate with other parts of the brain, the opioid neurotransmitters. Shortages of these chemicals can result in the symptoms usually associated with AD/HD. The person with this/these disorder/s may discover that strenuous physical or mental activity helps. If the disorder is pronounced, high activity may not be enough. The person may then turn to alcohol to self medicate. Certain by-products produced in the body from the break down of alcohol decreases the brain’s ability to manufacture the needed opioid neurotransmitters.

It is important to note that 80% of the time, a shortage of opioids has a genetic cause. The other 20% of the time is due to environmental stressors.

SCORING:
If you have a score of five to nine, you have a high probability of having opioid neurotransmitter deficiency.

If you have a score of 10 or more, or if you have said yes to any of the questions with 5 points, you have a significant possibility of having opioid neurotransmitter deficiency. Research has shown a significant correlation between opioid deficiency and the development of AD/HD and/or dependence upon alcohol.

Note: Only a physician or certified psychologist can make a diagnosis of alcohol dependence, or AD/HD.
