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!!!

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.
