Editorial Reviews

Review

Dr. Newmark has finally crafted the book that I have long been wishing for: a wonderful self-help guide for parents looking for a thoughtful and sciencebased natural approach to treating ADHD. This integrative/holistic style reduces or eliminates the need for stimulant medications and offers sound advice about diet, sleep, nutrients, herbs and other key modalities. The book radiates a balanced wisdom that comes so rarely from practicing physicians today. --Scott Shannon, MD, Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist; author of Please Don t Label My Child; editor of Handbook of Complementary and Alternative Therapies in Mental Health

If I had one book to read about ADHD, this is it. It is well-written, practical and filled with the uncommonly good common sense of an experienced and compassionate clinician with fair-minded and rigorous reviews of the state of the science. --Kathi Kemper, MD, MPH; Director, Center for Integrative Medicine; Professor of Pediatrics, Social Science Health Policy, and Family and Community Medicine, Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center

Parents are keenly interested in finding non-drug, holistic strategies that support their child s natural healing systems and that help build healthy brains. This excellent new book artfully blends the best of conventional and complementary options for kids with ADHD. Over years of clinical practice and scientific study, Dr.Newmark has developed a balanced, safe, natural approach that I will wholeheartedly recommend for all of my patients with ADHD.

He received his medical degree in 1984 from the University of Arizona College of Medicine and three years later completed his pediatrics residency there. For the next 14 years, Dr. Newmark practiced general pediatrics but took special interest in behavioral problems such as ADHD and autism. In 2000, he graduated from the two-year fellowship program in integrative medicine at the Program in Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona, which was founded by and continues to be led by Dr. AndrewWeil. Dr. Newmark was the first graduate from this program to practice general pediatrics and is now part of the program faculty. For five years, he was Director of the Center for Pediatric IntegrativeMedicine, a Tucson, AZ, clinic for children with a wide variety of medical issues. In 2009 he relocated to California to join Whole Child Wellness, an integrative pediatrics practice near San Francisco. Dr. Newmark lectures frequently on ADHD, autism, and integrative medicine, and has contributed three chapters to academic integrative medicine textbooks. Dr. Newmark has been married to his wife, Linda, a psychologist, for 36 years. They have two children.

Buying this book is a no-brainer if you are concerned with ADHD. I only want to add that Dr. Newmark gave a 56-minute talk entitled "An Integrative Approach to ADHD" at the University of California. You can google it; it's available on at uctv. tv and on Youtube. I suggest you watch it while waiting for your book to come. He knows what he is talking about--see for yourself.

As a long-time educator and school counselor, my heart breaks each time a young child's diagnosis of ADHD is addressed with chemicals as the first protocol, altering the young developing brain with drugs. Dr. Sandy Newmark's carefully researched and documented new book supports alternatives to drugging our intensely, delightful youth, giving parents and educators tools to tackle real issues of focus and the under-developed executive functioning. This book is exactly the resource I have needed to combat the ever-growing demand made by well-intentioned parents, physicians, educators when they query, "Have you considered putting him/her on medication?" Rather, have you considered ADHD Without Drugs? Bringing out the best version of our children without drugs - who doesn't want that?

As a parent and therapist I am constantly looking for common sense, holistically based resources. It has been impossible to find unbiased, holistic, and accurate information from the medical community-until now. Dr. Newmark provides parents with accurate information that is untainted by the pharmecutical companies. He provides real tools for navigating an ADHD diagnosis and dispells common myths and fallacies about how to treat it. His book brings hope to all parents facing this challenge in a practical and supportive way. Thank you Dr. Newmark, for changing everything about the way we view ADHD!

As a counseling psychologist with 15 years experience,I have encountered numerous clients whose families have been impacted by children diagnosed with ADHD.In the past, these clients have not had any access to information other than that which was provided by the standard "medical model" treatment.That treatment strategy was always based in psychostimulant medication.NOW THERE ARE ALTERNATIVES!!!!!! Dr. Newmark opens the doors to a new and dynamic approach with easy to understand practical information backed by the most current scientific data that both acknowledges and honors the complexity of each individual situation.ADHD Without Drugs represents an incredibly useful and welcome additon to aid both parents and professionals.Thank you Dr.Newmark

"Dr. Sandy Newmark is a visionary, ethical and compassionate pediatrician whom is taking his expertise to STOP the INSANITY occurring with our children, adolescents and even adults! It is with great disappointment and frustration that a majority of physicians reach for their Rx pads BEFORE even considering a holistic approach. I could only wish they were in homes and classrooms when we are observing the deleterious side effects that create chaos and broken spirits along the way. I can attest to the atrocities that are associated with medication cocktails and what is perceived as guinea pig like experimentation through my leadership in our in-home program. Dr. Newmark is a great humanitarian to use his wisdom, skill and power in such a magnanimous way to make much needed change in the field of pediatrics and psychiatry. More importantly in the lives of the people we serve! Dr. Newmark is to medicine what Marty Seligman is to Positive Psychology igniting the change we need! "

As an elementary school Social Worker, I am so grateful for Dr. Newmark's book. Every school year, I work with children and families who are facing this issue and this information will be so helpful to all of us who are involved in helping to make appropriate recommendations and accommodations for these children. More and more families are expressing concern about giving their children these drugs, not to mention the increasing number of families who are without insurance and need to find alternatives to drug therapy. I feel that after reading this book I will be able to be a more informed participant in these children's treatment plans and will have an excellent source to refer parents to who have questions regarding this complicated issue. In addition to these benefits, I learned much about the different options that Dr. Newmark covered. He gives a brief overview of each modality and I learned a lot. I even discovered that I am taking the wrong kind of Omega fish oils for myself! I will be encouraging my teammates at work to read this book before we make one more suggestion to a parent to have their child's doctor assess for ADHD. We all need to be supporting families in utilizing the most healthy options for their children.

What's up with so many children being diagnosed with ADHD? Dr. Newmark simplifies this diagnosis in a down-to-earth, slightly humorous tone. He understands that each child is unique offering his expertise and insights to parents/teachers or anyone that has an ADHD child in their life. As a teacher, I find this book refreshing to read; the information is immensely helpful and empowering.
