      Hello moms, I was wondering if anyone has tried alternative or natural remediesfor ADHD rather than having your child taking prescription medications or if you took your child off mess. And tried something else and if so what has been effective for your child

      Organic plant bases diet is said to help a lot. Avoid sugars, dyes, and processed foods.

      My daughter was diagnosed 5 years ago and we were not given a diet option at that time. She could not function in school, had difficulty concentrating and focusing.I avoided medication, but finally gave in and I have to say wow what a difference. While I prefer all natural now, I found it difficult to make any changes to my 10 year olds diet. She doesn’t eat as it is, and any changes I have made she rejects. She also is on the Autism spectrum so it makes it difficult with her issue with change. I do avoid as much sugar as possible, and organic and non-GMO, ect. but with her not eating hardly anything, it is still hard to modify her diet. Medication is not for everyone, it is a decision each parent has to make. I just could not watch my daughter suffer anymore in school, and with her autism, yeah, it is not easy. I did however, choose a non psychotropic medication so she doesn’t have to take it everyday.

      Following, as new to momsmeet, an looking for some natural alternatives for a teenager and myself, an adult.

    • #205486

      Try looking into changing some foods in their diet

    • #205535

      We use Omega-3 (fish oil) that has 2-3 times more EPA than DHA in it; and give multi-vitamins that are high in B-6 and magnesium. It’s also important to limit the sugar, salt, and caffeine intake. Not saying this works for everyone, but there has been noticeable improvement in our family.

      Natural is best but sometime its just slow or dont work so have a backup just in case

    • #292127
