    “The treatments we describe include special herbs, nutrients, mind-body practices, brain stimulation and neurofeedback techniques.” Both of these quotes from the authors Dr. P. Brown and Dr. L. Gerbarg are well written and best describe the valuable contents of this comprehensive resource book. As the medical field advances in knowledge they uncover more reasons to eliminate stimulant medications and their toxic chemical side effects.
    ADHD is a life altering affliction experienced by thousands of children, many of whom carry it into their adult lives. Some people spend their whole lives battling a barrage of symptoms never to find the right medication, the right dosage or the right combination. Sadly it is not just the patient who suffers personal and professional havoc but all of whom enter his/her life.
    ADHD patients have differences in the part of their brain that controls attention and activity. They have extreme difficulty staying focused, controlling their behavior or emotions.
    Research has proven that some ADHD symptoms are genetic and have also proved there are definite changes in brain chemicals called neurotransmitters. Through relentless medical research they have discovered the brain is capable of neuroplasticity, which with the right mind training may repair or even build new neural pathways. There is also an association with reduced brain tissue volume in ADHD patients in the area responsible for attention.
    Without knowledge and successful treatment the disorder attracts detrimental life experiences. Due to impulsive behavior and missed social cues they may experience peer rejection, without understanding why. They may be seen as bossy and argumentative leading to lowered self esteem, eventually resulting in self-destructive behavior. As a rule they have few friends, multiple relationships, and are prone to indulging in illegal substance. I believe marijuana is the preferred choice due to it’s relaxing effect.
    The doctors’ introduce useful herbs that have proved to enhance aspects of brain function. An ancient medicinal herb, Rhodiola Rosea (golden root, arctic root) has shown positive results in improving alertness, attention and accuracy. They provide awareness to Melatonin, a natural sleep hormone and the importance of eliminating food additives such as dye. Mindfullness a challenging practice and coherent breathing along with meditative activities such as Yoga are encouraged.
    Dr. Brown and Dr. Gerbarg have combined their 30 years of practice and experience to write this must read resource book. The Tables, the resources and personal touch included are plentiful and irrefutable. They have held my attention from start to finish. With Regards I Highly Recommend this book whether for medical knowledge or personal hope. Reviewer Cheryl Heinrichs
