some studies have shown that kids with add and adhd have low levels of essential fatty acids(omegas). you can try a supplement of flax or fish oil. there are also lots of foods that have been adding these oils. it is also thought that essential fatty acids contribute to postpartum depression... i took supplements after my third baby and i noticed a difference.

There are therapists who work with people who have ADD/ADHD; they teach them not just coping skills, but how to use ADD/ADHD as an advantage in their lives. Thom Hartmann has written extensively on this topic; you should be able to find his books at a library, there is lots of information at his website: http://www.thomhartmann.com/category/thom/adhd-education/ You may also want to explore how foods affect behavior, either from the Feingold Organization (www.feingold.org ) or elsewhere. We eat a "clean" diet; no processed foods, no chemical additives, no meat, very little dairy My daughter's attention issues were helped dramatically by fish oil supplements (though we have since switched her to hemp oil). It is important to use a good brand, like Nordic Naturals; it takes about 8 weeks to become effective
