Hi...I am a mother of a 9 yr old boy who we now know has ADHD but the docs dont want to medicate. I dont know what else to do. He's in 3rd grade with a 2nd grade beginners education. He's so far behind I'm afraid he will get held back. Hes making progress with the extra help he gets in school. Does anyone have any non prescript meds they recommend or anything I can try???

Hi there,
alot of kids these days are being diagnosed with adhd... some can simply have a change in there diet and be totally fine... I would talk to a naturalpathic type doc if you dont want to medicate.. sometimes certain foods can have a bad reaction in kids to make them appear adhd and since this is a medicated world our docs want to get paid and perscribe meds.. I can talk to my MIL who is totally into natural healing and if you want she prob knows how to help.
Diet changes are really hard.. for me anyways.. i have many issues of my own I am trying just by diet change. He also maybe lacking a certain mineral or supplement in his diet... I would give that a shot..
let me know and i can talk to my mil.. she has a great book about all that natural stuff.
GOOD LUCK :0)

hi...my daughter is 6 and has adhd and bipolar...thank god her dr. does do meds even tho i dont like him, but a support group im with alot of parents do natural. truehope is what its called you can look online some say it changed their lives for the best. hope this works...do you have an IEP for school? also another thought is to change your dr. if hes not doing what you believe to be best for your child. is it a reg. dr or a psychrist? some dr. just wont listen to parents even tho we are the ones living with these children daily and sometimes we really know whats best...good luck  nikki
