I strongly believe that my daughter has adhd and I refuse to put her on conventional meds because of the bad side effects, but I do want to find a homeopathic medicine to ease the symptoms that she's having. I know that medicine is medicine and I have to take precautions no matter if the meds are natural or conventional, however, I'm not comfortable giving her conventional drugs to treat her condition. I heard that cod liver oil was good and I did try some omega fish oil for her along with a natural medicine and it seemed to work. I was wondering if other moms in my situation can give me some advice on this issue because I want to help my child with her focus.

If you aren't going to medicate your child then you need to be prepared to care for and educate her 24/7 until she is 18 or older. Forget "natural" and homeopathic remedies. They are dangerous and haven't been proven effective. I have a son with bipolar disorder and I home schooled him. It's very difficult to take on that kind of responsibility. It's not right to not give your child meds and then send her to day care or school. It's not good for her, the teacher, or the other kids.
