Bella Wang Photography, LLC

And FINALLY tonight…the last installment of my ADHD series!

To recap the series on ADHD thus far…

Part I:  ADD/ADHD OFF KLTR Series Introduction

Part II:  WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO HAVE ADHD?

Part III.  HEALING ADHD SYMPTOMS WITH LIFESTYLE CHANGES

And this brings us up-to-date and to today’s post…

Part IV.  TREATING ADHD WITH HOLISTIC THERAPIES.

A.  If my child were diagnosed with ADHD, I would start with homeopathy.

I would read the book Ritalin Free Kids.

Ritalin Free Kids offers a great safe, natural, nontoxic alternative to stimulant medications, antidepressants, and atypical antipsychotic medications. That alternative is homeopathic medicine. Homeopathic medicine has been practiced throughout the world for more than 200 years. Drs. Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman and Robert Ullman have been in practice for over 30 years, and have treated thousands of children and adults with ADHD and other psychological, emotional and learning problems. In this 3rd revised edition, the authors add ten new cases and a completely updated section on medications and research. Join the many thousands of parents who have used Ritalin Free Kids and homeopathic treatment to change their childrens’ lives.   -Amazon.com

If I were searching for a homeopath, I would want someone who does CEASE (a type of homeopathy).  CEASE stands for Complete Elimination of Autistic Spectrum Expression, but it is not only used for children on the Autism spectrum.  It has to do with (energetically) detoxing the child’s system.  So if I were looking for a homeopath to help relieve my child’s ADHD symptoms, I would search for a homeopath that practices CEASE.

B.  Acupuncture

Here’s a great article about Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine as an alternative to Ritalin.

For children, I strongly recommend Mr. Kuwahara at Kulia Ki Clinic in Watertown, MA.

I am currently seeing Diane Iuliano at the Lydian Center in Cambridge, MA and like her very much, too.

C.  Energy Kinesiology

Both of these energy kinesiology practitioners are fabulous.  We love them.  If it were my child, I would start with Joy so that she can clear any emotional stuff that ‘s going on and then I’d see Dr. Krebs to do his LEAP/Brain Integration series.

Joy DelGiudice:  Oh how Joy gets this issue!  “In 1992 educators suggested Joy’s elder son had ADHD at a time when the only answer seemed to be medication. She began searching for explanations and non-medicinal alternatives. Was society attempting to fit a generation of children into a predetermined role, potentially damaging their creativity, vitality, and self-esteem? She began to wonder if the classroom was damaging children’s neural circuitry and causing learning dysfunction, and that the learning “dysfunction” was the brain’s effort to survive stressful situations. These doubts led Joy on a twenty-year quest to search for alternative solutions.”

Dr. Charles Krebs:  created LEAP/Brain Integration for learning disabilities and challenges, such as ADD and ADHD.
