Raising a son who is diagnosed with ADHD (at 4) has had its highs and lows. I look back at the trials his father and I have been through over several different circumstances. The biggest for us was medication. To medicate or not to medicate? Side effects? Dosage? It’s such a controversy, but that’s not what I’m here for. (He is medicated, just so you know.) I am 100% behind whatever YOU think is best for YOUR child. Do you want to completely change his diet? Let’s try it. Do you want to eliminate certain dyes or grains? Let’s try it! My pediatrician wanted to add 2 more stimulants to my sons regimen and I said no. That’s too much at this point. I’m not trying to have a zombie kid. So finding a healthy balance of diet and medication/supplements is what I’m striving to do. What I’ve learned is that diet/lifestyle not only positively effects my 6 year old ADHDer, but also me and Donny. It’s effecting my parents. Its effecting my in-laws. All in different ways. What I am here for is to help someone. Whether it’s you, a friend, a child, or simply anyone who is looking to make simple lifestyle changes to get healthier, I feel the need to share my tips. I also won’t stay solely on the topic of ADHD, so don’t let that steer you away. Overall health is so important at every age and stage in life! I hope you enjoy!
