I recently saw Dr. Mary Ann Block on the CBS news program "48 Hours" and liked what she said about looking for the underlying causes of attention and behavior symptoms instead of giving risky drugs to cover the symptoms. So I got her book and I read it in one night. It was that good and that important. Dr. Block just plain makes sense and it was so exciting to finally get some practical information, I couldn't stop reading. I now understand all the possible factors that can be causing the ADHD symptoms and would never consider using drugs when there are so many safer and more reasonable options available. If anyone tells you that you or your child has ADHD, and you are fortunate enough to find this site and be reading this review, then, let me tell you, you have found the right book to read. It is No More ADHD by Dr. Mary Ann Block.

I have two children that were diagnosed ADD and ADHD in 3rd grade. I went along with the program of Ritalin and then Adderal (until I learned what it can do to their livers over time and how taking these drugs can lead to depression and the need for anti-depressents which can then really lead to more problems)and then I pulled the kids off the medications. I didn't tell the teachers, lol, until a year and a half later. But by then I had read the book and was going through the process of elimination to discover what was creating the problems with my kids.

It takes some time and going to her website is a big help: [...]but this book was a life saver. I was so helped by it that I bought copies and made teachers and counselors, even my kids principal read the book. Not only did it educate them but it empowered them to work with me on things to be done at school to find the source for my children's lack of attention in class. Between removing the processed foods, sugars and doing the other things suggested in the book, we were able to overcome what looked like ADHD and ADD symptoms.

So does this book educate? Most definitely. Is there help out here that doesn't require one to poison our children with chemicals? Absolutely! My kids are 16 and 14 today and doing great.

Format: Paperback
Dr. Block has put together an insightful analysis of the roots of the epidemic of ADD/ADHD labeling, while offering proven effective interventions for people seeking to address the causes that produce the symptoms associated with those labels. There are many physical, emotional, and environmental factors that contribute to inattentiveness and hyperactivity. Common discipline methods and drug treatments often aggravate these underlying imbalances and stressors, even if they temporarily create conforming/compliant behavior. While this book has improved on the scope of the author's previous book "No More Ritalin," I'd like to see a further expansion toward examining emotional and subtle energy factors that relate to ADD/ADHD symptoms, as these interact with biochemical/environmental factors addressed in the present book. Unfortunately, there are many parents and caretakers who are unwilling to make changes in their current habits of feeding, nurturing, and disciplining children. The more healthy options that can be presented, the better, since this increases the chances that parents and educators will try some beneficial approach. Dr. Block has done a solid job of exposing the fallacies and negligence of the established medical paradigm surrounding the ADD/ADHD issue.

Dr. Block's book "No More ADHD" is similar to her book "No More Ritalin" in content. "No More ADHD" is an excellent book that is easy to read and understand.
The author reveals that things such as hypoglycemia/low blood sugar, allergies and sensitivities often cause ADHD-like symptoms. This book is very important because it shows that our children do not need to be drugged to be helped and that there are alternatives.

This book gives alternatives to the drugs that doctors are so quick to pass out to our children. Everybody knows that drugs have side effects, especially with children. Dr. Block offers easy alternatives that can drastically improve your child's life and yours. I have passed this book on to many of my friends who have children who have had problems. Some are just starting to have problems, and have been ecstatic to nip the problem in the bud and be able to help their child without having to put prescription drugs into their systems. Others are at their wits ends and have been to many doctors and feel like they have tried everything with no solution. They have read this book and instantly have had hope, and once used Dr. Blocks remedies on their children, they were happy the fight was over to find a way for their children to finally feel better. i highly recomend this book to anyone who cares about a child.

Finally, a book that not only makes sense but gives practical suggestions to help our children. The book, No More ADHD, is bigger and better and with much more information than Dr. Block's first book, No More Ritalin. No More ADHD examines the ADHD diagnosis and rips it to shreds with facts from the FDA, DEA and other sources. But most importantly, the author takes an unflinching look at the all too real and frightening dangers of the drugs that doctors give children who are labeled ADHD. The psychotic and cardiac symptoms alone should send up big red flags! But the book has answers. Dr. Block explains the real causes of attention and behavior problems and what parents can do to fix them. Before you and your child get caught up in the ADHD frenzy, you have to read this book. Your child is depending on you.
