My son has ADHD and we have struggled for years with every type of medication the doctors pushed at us. My son did not do well on any of the medications that we trialed. He became someone else, lost in his own mind. He became very agressive, alienated, depressed,not able to gain weight or sleep. I made the decision that I wanted to try something different than the medications that made my child foreign to me. Thank god that one of my friends had started seeing Dr. Bob and told me about this book. I was very skeptical at first. I remember thinking to my self that there was no way this was going to work by food modification and vitamins. A few weeks after we started the modifications to the diet I started noticing little changes. About 3 months into it I could not believe that I had my child back. He was happy again, wanting to play outside and with his friends. He could concentrate at school and was not angry or defiant anymore.He had put on about 8 pounds. Best of all he was off the medication and his body was health again.

Advice in this book is not very different from any other 'alternative medicine' book. A good diet will help anyone and ADHD patients will benefit from this advice like anyone else. But I am not convinced that diet alone will fully cure ADHD. Author has widely criticized pharmaceutical companies, food manufactures and media for distorting our perceptions and falsifying food labels - I agree with many things he says but it is equally disturbing to see that title of this book is misleading in the same way. Even if everything is in this book is correct and you followed his advice to the last letter, stopping ADHD in 18 days is a very very exaggerated claim. Diet based treatments will take a longer time than this.

I have been following a similar food plan since I was diagnosed with ADHD a few months ago. Cutting sugar, simple carbs and processed foods helps in reducing hyperactivity but have little or no impact on more serious side of ADHD which is impulse control or behavior regulation. For many people, hyperactivity is what they see on the outside so they will notice a difference if junk food and sugar intake is reduced or eliminated but ADHD still remains.

This book doesn't talk about ADHD at all - author could have replaced the word 'ADHD' with another modern day disease and could still have sold the book. It would have been great if detailed information was available on foods suitable for different ADHD subtypes etc but I doubt author knows much about ADHD and the underlying causes because he has made some unsubstantiated and generalized statements about research on ADHD in the book. I agree with him that medication is NOT the answer but dismissing medication without any solid reasoning doesn't make sense.

I am so thankful that I discovered this book one and a half months ago. My 6 year old little boy has always been hyper and was having an increasingly difficult time at school. His teacher knew that we did not want to medicate him and had been trying to use behavioral charts and reward to encourage him. He was suppose to receive 4 stars a day for sitting still and listening quietly. Day after day he came home with either one or no stars. At this point I found this book. We always ate fairly healthy...but I began using more organic products. I gave him an excellent natural vitamin, magnesium and began giving him flax oil each day. Dr. Bob wrote that Omega3 has a half life of 18 days and therefore effects should be seen in that time period. Amazingly...this happened...after three weeks of flax oil...my son began receiving 4 stars...we have now had three weeks of consistent 4 star days. He is so proud and we are just amazed. Every time I go into school I now hear something positive about my little guy...he is still high energy...but it is a different level...he can control it now, and calm down when he is told and even monitor himself and behave in the way that he knows is appropriate. I just need to say thank-you Dr. Bob...your book has really changed the life of our son and our whole family!

My 3 year old son had been out of control for a long time. He had many symptoms of ODD. He had a short fuse and got angry easily. He always whined and wouldn't sleep through the night. Both my husband and I were at a breaking point, but knew we did NOT want to go the medication route. I always thought our family ate pretty healthy; we would limited our kids sugar/snack intake and we weren't a milk drinking family so I didn't think that my son's 'attitude' symptoms were food/mineral deficiant related. Boy, were we wrong!
While reading Dr. Bob's book I compared my son's 'symptoms' to those in the book. Dr. Bob's book has been a lifesaver! We noticed a difference in only 5 days!
We started w/ the nigtly salmon oil, added flax, changed to soy and rice milk and we are beginning to add vitamins and whole food minerals. We even started the program for all 3 my children.
This book has added a bright future for our children and has given my husband and I the peace in knowing we are actually getting to the root of the problam instead of just medicating the problem. Thanks Dr. Bob.
