Mom Refuses Ritalin and Heals Her ADHD Autism Kids With Natural Medicine

www.thenaturalguide.com – (Video by Larry Cook) Deborah Merlin raised prematurely born twin sons diagnosed with a host of medical problems and neurological challenges. She refused to put her children on Ritalin or other stimulant medications while at the same time the other conventional medicine treatments and therapies she tried resulted in multiple failures. After seven years of determined research she finally found success with dietary change, supplements and natural medicine therapies prescribed by an integrative medical doctor. Her integrative medical doctor ordered an amino acid panel and found that one of her sons was deficient in several amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks of neurotransmitters in the brain. Shortly after her son started on the amino acid supplements, his facial tics stopped, his violent behavior went away, his seizures disappeared, he became happier, and remarkably, he went from failing in school to getting A’s and B’s in school. Watch the video to hear the whole story, and then order her book, “VICTORY OVER ADHD a holistic approach for helping children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder” from www.amazon.com or her website http Video Interview of: Deborah Reinauer Merlin www.victoryoveradhd.com Produced by Larry Cook Author of The Beginner’s Guide to Natural Living www.thenaturalguide.com

How do ADHD medications affect those without ADHD?

Since children who have ADHD are supposed to take certain medication in order to help them concentrate as well as improve in school, how would taking these drugs affect the brain of someone who does not have ADHD? For example, many students who are in college or university take ADHD in order to be able to focus better, stay up longer, etc … What would the long-term and short-term effects be of taking these drugs?
Sorry I meant to say that the university and college students illegally take ADHD medications.

How does someone with ADHD chill out mentally and physically?

When you have ADHD, what can you do when you want to relax and unwind in your downtime? ie, when you really have nothing else to do, or you don’t want to do anything because you’re already overworked.

I mean, just sitting down watching tv, walks on the beach, reading a book, these things do not help you ‘chill out’ at all.

So what can a person with unlimited ‘restless energy’ that can only be controlled with drugs, do to relax when they prefer not to use drugs?

Thanks.

Does lack of focus or completion of tasks mean ADD

Does anyone have personal contact with or are you a person who starts some project and can’t seem to get around to completing it in a timely fashion…starting and stopping and coming back to it perhaps in days, weeks or possibly never? Is this A.D.D. or can it be for other reasons this cycle is repeated? What does one do about it? It seems that we overuse drugs to remedy “EVERYTHING”, so suggesting alternatives would be welcome!
