In Reply to: Re: looking for alternatives to ADD drugs posted by Jaynee on June 27, 2000 at 22:37:34:

I am very curious. My daughter just turned 5 and we are suspecting she may have ADD. She does have signif. oral motor dyspraxia and sensory intergration issues. I have heard that ADD is dificult to diagnosis before the age of 6-7 yrs. How did they dx your child with ADD? Since I am new to all of this I would like to know what type of testing is available. Also what type of diet/supplements did you use? How did you find your Dr? Sorry for all the questions but I'm just learning about this. Please feel free to email me
Thank you so much!

: My son was diagnosed at age 4 with ADHD, I went thru the conventional methods first for a few years and was very unhappy with the results. It just seems that for every one thing the medication helped it caused tons of other problems, from depression to anorexia. A year ago I took the advice of a friend of mine and took my son to a Naturopathic doctor. The ND diagnosed him with Candida which was in such advanced stages that it was in his blood. To make a long story short, I gave it a shot. Put him on a strict diet and he took several supplements and now he no longer is in need of tubes in his ears, he is getting A's, B's, & C's in school. When I first took him to the ND, my son couldn't sit still in his office, now he sits through the whole hour session without fidgetting. I have also started treatment, I feel better about myself, can focus better, and have lost 7 pounds. Come to find out you are what you eat!!!
