ADHD Alternatives: A Natural Approach to Treating Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

by Aviva J. Romm Author, Tracy Romm Author and Christopher Hobbs Author

ADHD is everywhere these days, and remains one of the most commonly diagnosed (and misdiagnosed) disorders in children. Part of this phenomena can be attributed to greed on the part of the pharmaceutical industry: more ADHD diagnoses means more sales of Ritalin and Adderall. But these drugs are serious chemicals with serious side effects, and many parents are understandably anxious or hesitant about starting their children on such a powerful drug. In this book, authors Aviva and Tracey Romm and Christopher Hobbs set out to provide the reader with a basic understanding of the factors that can aggravate and cause ADHD, as well as offer a natural and holistic approach to combatting its most detrimental effects. Using nutritional supplements, herbal medicines, and various exercises to build self-esteem, creativity, and self-discipline, parents can help their children overcome ADHD without psychostimulants.
