Nutritional supplements instead of prescription meds

For those who are not familiar with bio medical treatment , there are natural alternatives to drugs such as Ritalin or sleeping pills.

Our boys, two of whom additionally have ADHD take nutritional supplements. One did have Ritalin for a year age 7 when he was frequently smashing windows and could not sit still at all. I was not keen for a lifetime of drugs so we sought alternative help.

The boys were treated for a few years by a wonderful qualified Doctor who specialised in autism but since then they have been treated by nutritionists. Nutritionists don’t just talk about diets.

Supplements such as Theani15123415_1446323838728957_2355426377098480441_one (found in green tea) and 5 HTP are given but you do need specialist advice and shouldn’t try to treat your children without a recommended expert.

Anyone interested in finding out more, look at the Treating Autism website or Lilias Ahmeira’s facebook page.
