  • I too never felt comfortable with the idea of giving my child dangerous stimulant medication. I opted for a biomedical approach with the help of a DAN doctor and was able to rid my son of his ADHD diagnosis.

  • A good quality magnesium supplement paired with B6 to help absorb it. Also DMG or TMG.

  • They make a supplement called Attentive Child that you can find in vitamin stores and health stores. You can also try Fish Oil. And one book I found extremely helpful, to the point of not needing these supplements anymore either is: Ritalin Is Not The Answer: A Drug-Free, Practical Program for Children Diagnosed with ADD or ADHD
