  • I've always said i would look into every alternative to meds i could find if my kids were ever diagnosed with ADD or ADHD. I'm afraid mine will have it, because i'm pretty sure DH had it just never was diagnosed. Changing their diet looks promising to me. It makes the most sense to me too.

  • Diet.

    Remove ALL artificial colors & flavors, HFCS, excess sugars including fruit juice. Limit all processed foods. Keep a food journal. Is he more hyper or agressive after eating certain foods? See an allergist for a Food panel RAST test for IgE & IgG antibodies. This is done by blood draw. A teaspoon of high quality fish oil 2x per day keeps my son calm.
