It’s time to bring back

When a child is diagnosed with ADHD, the first course of treatment that is typically recommended is medication. This needs to change! Medication has its place, but it shouldn’t be the first treatment option, not when there are natural solutions that are just as effective and sometimes even more so.

Parents of children with ADHD need to know they have options besides popping a pill. Some of these parents have already tried medication and had a negative experience with it. Others would like to avoid medication altogether if possible. These parents need to know that medication is not the only ADHD treatment available to them. Food and natural solutions should be the first line of defense when a child is diagnosed with ADHD, not the last.
