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.

Not what I was looking for, but it was educational and worth the price.It made some points I already knew and confirmed, but gave me some information to follow up on and ideas to explore.I can't say I loved the book but it definitely helped.

As someone with a PhD in sociology who is keenly aware of over-labeling and medicalization AND the daughter of a nutritionist who is not averse to alternative remedies, I found this book to be misleading and potentially dangerous. First of all, herbal remedies are still MEDICINES and have chemical effects and natural does not equal safe. Rather than a balanced approach that recognizes that SOME children do have ADHD, an actual neurological condiition, this book uses ANECDOTAL evidence (which in by book is not REAL EVIDENCE to further their own agenda. I was looking for helpful advice about nutrition and alternatives to use perhaps in conjunction with medication. There are now actually quite advanced diagnostic techniques (and MRI research) that demonstrate the differences between ADHD brain and high energy children within the standard deviations for normative behaviors.I might try some things, like the herbal pillow but too much of the tone is difficult to get past. That said, I would love a thoughtful book that talks about nutrition, yoga, etc. that could be used in conjunction with or as an alternative to conventional drug therapy. This isn't it.
