: My daughter is 8 years old and was just diagnosed with ADD Inattentive type. She has no other learning disabilities. I have suspected something was wrong since she was in first grade and I was constantly told that she was just immature. We moved to a new school district this year and her teacher pointed out that she might have an attention problem. I noticed it too. For years I noticed it - but the people who were with her everyday failed to give me any help - until now. I am now trying to decide whether or not to medicate her. We just got her first report card and she is seriously below average. I've tried everything at home. I don't know what else to do for her. I know she is a smart girl when she can fully concentrate on the task at hand. If anyone has any input or information or advice, I could really use it.
I have done a lot of research on this topic. I also had my son on Ritalin for about two years. Resently I went to hear a medical doctor speak about natural alternatives. The research he has done states that a very high percentage suffer from parasites, leaky bowel or yeast. You would be supprised at the number of people who have parasites. The doctors usually test for parasites by taking a bowel sample. Parasites as the name suggests live in the bowel and attach themselves to the walls and never come out in the fecal matter. If they do there is a huge infestation. Check these things out. Good luck.
