Is ADD Making Back to School Tough for You & Your Child?

As the kids head back to school, some students (and parents!) have a tougher time than others as Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) rears its difficult head. Parents today are barraged by “cures” from diet to hypnosis. To help some of you out, we would like to share how a child struggling with ADD was successfully treated in our office.

“Steve” is a 9-year-old boy who was diagnosed with ADD. He was seen in our office about one year ago because he was having trouble at school and difficulty at home following simple instructions. “Steve” was a wonderfully bright child, but was not meeting his full potential because he had trouble focusing and sitting still.

We tested “Steve” for food allergies and found he was highly allergic to milk, which he drank every morning. Research has shown that there is a strong link between food allergies and behavioral problems. His parents removed milk and milk products from his diet and started to notice an improvement. We also used herbal supplements to help heal his digestive track, which had been very upset by the milk he had been consuming. After about six weeks of avoiding milk, “Steve” was already doing better in school. A year has passed and his teachers and parents comment that he is still “Steve”, but a much better student now.

We have had many similar experiences as this in our office. If you have any questions or experiences to share, please do so. We would love to hear what works for you!
