Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Nutrition-based therapies have been used effectively to treat a wide variety of health problems, ranging from PMS to cancer. In this helpful guide, clinical nutritionist Zimmerman discusses how diet therapy can provide long-term relief and even a cure for attention deficit disorder (ADD). During the past decade, the use of Ritalin, the drug most commonly prescribed for ADD, has risen 600 percent, but its effects are temporary and possibly harmful. Zimmerman's program for getting off medication involves eliminating allergic foods, additives, pollutants, and harmful fats and instead focusing on unprocessed, nutrient-rich meals supplemented with fatty acids, minerals, and vitamin co-enzymes. Her 30-day plan provides food charts and recipe ideas. This effective, natural approach, based on extensive research on the link between diet and brain function, will be greatly appreciated by parents of children diagnosed with ADD. Highly recommended for public libraries.--Ilse Heidmann, San Marcos, TX Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

    MUST READ for ALL

    My brother gave this to me in a stack of books to read while I was visiting. I never read anything else he gave me...the book is amazing - I think it's a must-read for anyone concerned with their own health as well as that of their children - ADD or not! A friend was having problems with his 5 yr old granddaughter - therapists put her on meds, but she did not improve. I sent them this book for the entire family - they were very relieved & grateful - long story short: they have been able to take her off the meds just by making some small adjustments to her diet...and they all have become wiser about their food choices! They also realized they weren't bad parents, but their little girl had unrealized allergies. Not a 'cure-all' but definitely will at the very least help! This should be required reading for everyone!!!

    I recommend this book to anyone with ADD or ADHD

    Our son was diagnosed with ADD. We didn't like the idea of giving him medication. We wanted an alternative and this book has given us that alternative. It has given us knowledge on how to feed our son better, how to read labels and what kind of supplements we should be giving him. Not only does this book talk about nutrition for individuals with ADD/ADHD but it also has a lot of information about what ADD/ADHD is. All information is simple and easy to read. I recommend this book to anyone who is affected by ADD/ADHD whether directly or indirectly. This book can help you understand what it is, where it comes from, and how to manage it.
