Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

With attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) becoming one of the most commonly diagnosed (and misdiagnosed) disorders of childhood, and with the prescription of Ritalin and other powerful psychostimulant drugs reaching alarming proportions, it is time to take a fresh look at what ADHD is, and what it is not.

In this thoughtful and empowering book, Aviva and Tracy Romm guide parents and educators in taking a more holistic, natural, and effective approach to problems of attention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. They offer insights into the root causes of ADHD and share their inspiring advice on addressing a child's unique needs through nutrition; herbal medicine; and loving, understanding parenting that fosters self-esteem, creativity, confidence, and self-discipline.

In a world that believes in taking a pill for every thing that ills you, it is nice to have a resource that looks at the whole child. Both my son's counselor and psychologist were very impressed with this book.

I bought this book the day before writing this. I was very disappointed because it's written from the perspective of two people, one a teacher of ADHD kids and the other an herbalist who are not parents or have ADHD themselves-so how would they know? They don't. As a ADHD person with a ADHD kid whose father has it too, I have enough blame placed upon me without reading a book that says my child needs more hugs, that we need to cut off the t.v.-she's too hyper to watch it, and that both parents and teachers have failed ADHD kids. It's a case of people thinking they know what is wrong with ADHD kids without truly knowing. My daughter has a double dose and has always been a handful since she was one. They are saying that parents shouldn't take the words of the teachers and parents shouldn't want their kids labeled. Most parents are like me, have been dragging their kids to the peditrician since they were very young begging for someone to listen. I didn't need a teacher to confirm what I knew along time ago. I am though trying the natural approach to ADHD and it works 70 to 80% of the time. I am still working on the right combination though. From the point of view of an herbal approach to ADHD, I appreciate it for giving even more choices than I had, but from the point of view of understanding ADHD, they have not a clue!

It is clear that the authors of this book question labeling what they consider normal childhood behavior with a mental illness. If you are the parent of an ADHD child, their stance is insulting. ADHD is a physiological disorder disrupting executive functioning in the prefrontal cortex of the brain - brain scans have been done to show the underarousal in ADHD patients in these very areas of the brain. ADHD is being increasingly diagnosed because as a society we are increasingly requiring children to unnaturally sit at attention for longer and longer periods of time - 100 years ago, children did not sit at desks all day long. I encourage alternative treatments to the disorder - many random controlled trials have been done on homeopathy, essential oils, biofeedback etc. But this is a real disorder - all you need is to live with a child who has it to understand.
