Editorial Reviews

Portland Book Review - 5 Stars ***** of 5

"Overall, this book makes a compelling argument against medication use in ADHD treatment. The authors back up their claims with a wide variety of sources and professional opinions. And the writing is very accessible to all audiences. The information is presented in a clear way so concerned parents and teachers can use this guidebook effectively. Any caregiver of a child diagnosed with ADHD should read this book and consider non-medical treatment. Perhaps it will be the answer for some. And even if medication is used in treatment, there are plenty of great ideas included that will help caregivers make life easier for children living with ADHD."
by Elibabeth Franklin, Portland Book Review

Midwest Book Review - (Oregon, WI USA) "An excellent read that should very much be considered by concerned parents." 5 Stars ***** of 5

"Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder almost comes at an epidemic level. "Overcoming ADHD without Medication" is a guide for parents who want to pursue treating this condition for their children without resorting to drugs such as Ritalin, which carry some side effects. With a lot of thought and understanding of concern, "Overcoming ADHD without Medication" is an excellent read that should very much be considered by concerned parents." - Midwest Book Review
end review

"As a physician, I see children and adults daily who have been diagnosed with ADD and ADHD. The first thing that often happens in this case is that they are put on medications without any regard for their lifestyle or nutritional habits. What I love about this book is that right from the beginning the author addresses that ADHD is a multi-factorial illness that has multi-factorial solutions." - Maiysha Clairborne, MD (Atlanta, GA)

"Overcoming ADHD Without Medication is a tremendous resource for parents who appreciate and want the whole person considered in interventions for their ADHD child." - Bradley Foster, Giant Steps ADHD Coaching

"Sensible, reasonable, and effective information on good parenting and healthy living habits for children. And in today's fast paced, over materialistic, and family jeopardized society, it's pages are filled with tips, guidelines, options, and resources that could be of priceless worth to parents and educators." - Lynda Coker, Between the Pages

"Having a child who was just diagnosed with ADHD I was greatly looking forward to reading a book that discussed the issue and medication as we explore our options for treatment. I liked that this book addressed the positives and negatives of using medication and from various standpoints such as effect at school etc. Also of benefit was the information provided regarding educational solutions, as think it is important for parents to advocate for their children and learning valuable info on how to help children is key to this and being able to provide teachers with info. The references and resources sections in this book were extensive. I really liked the checklist of questions provided to help caregivers look at different methods for treating adhd and areas to focus on and concerns for these children. Overall this book is well laid out and has a good variety of medical info and information from studies along with real easy to understand information regarding the topic at hand." Review the Book

  • Educational remediation is recommended before experimenting with medications.
  • Sleep disorders and child abuse can mistakenly be diagnosed for ADHD.
  • ADHD treated with stimulant drugs can sometimes result in symptoms of bipolar disorder and clinical depression.
  • What Children Need and What Works

    - Children need love and attention.

    - Children need good nutrition and a healthy breakfast daily.

    - Minimizing the time that a child spends watching TV and playing video games can yield positive results for many children.

    - "Green therapy," regular time outdoors, and with nature, is effective therapy for ADHD and childhood depression.

    ADHD and the Medical Model

    Many reputable child psychologists and child psychiatrists do not agree with the current, prevalent view of psychiatry based on the "medical model" of labeling and prescribing drugs.

    There are other models in mental health which more adequately and holistically describe the many interrelated factors of mental health, especially when touching on the mental health of children.
