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 privately...MomnMeFit@aol.com
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!!!
