Subject: PLEASE, An alternative to the MEDS!!!!! Anyone?

Meds have caused me to have ticks, serious eating problems, digestive problems, heart palpitations....I've litterally tried them all. Anyone had any REAL success with another approach?

My son, 19, uses a naturopathic product from a company called Biotics Research. Its only available through a naturopath. He also has issues with "standard" ADHD treatments. I have a couple of friends who have used Neurofeedback with success.

Good luck.

I've just done a couple of articles that may be of interest.

Caffeine and ADHD and ADD / ADHD Natural Remedies .

See also the Treatment Database for over 100 different treatments to ADHD, autism and dyslexia.

My son struggled in school since the 2nd grade. He has been diagnosed with Auditory Processing Disorder. He has had many of the organizational issues and concentration, memory issues. We found a combination of therapies to help him. He is 13 now and is doing really well. He has had speech therapy, some emotional therapy to learn to control frustrations. We try to limit empty carbohydrates and keep him well hydrated. Drinking lots of water helps to keep him focused. Believe it or not, XBox360 Rock Band has helped him too. Something about the coordination of the sound/beat, visual beat and hitting the drum at the same time seems to be rewiring his brain or making ear/brain connections. For several years, he had morning flax seed oil in oatmeal or yogurt for Omega 3s. He also takes a supplement, Elevate Brain & Eye Learning Memory Supplement by BioSource Naturals which is on Amazon.com.

It contains Amino Acids, Minerals, Vitamins & Herbs for brain and eye support. They are capsules, but they open and are tasteless in yogurt, applesauce and pudding. I am a Doctor of Naturopathy and formulated this product after 6 years of research and trying to help my son. After a month of taking it, I was getting raving emails from his teachers.

My naturalist doctor told me I shouldn't be taking any processed sugar. This means no sweets, soda, candy, etc. Or at least that I should limit them to almost nothing. He also said I should stop drinking milk and substitute it with soy milk and replace meats with tofu and soy (whenever possible). I also take pollen, and a few essential oils.
