I have been doing research on natural treatments for ADHD and I have come across something called Focus ADHD. The ad says: Use Focus to treat symptoms of ADHD naturally and: Reduce hyperactivity and restlessness Calm, soothe and reduce mood swings Improve concentration, memory and attention span Improve alertness and mental focus Calm over-active minds Reduce impulsiveness and aggression One bottle is around $30 and last for about 50 days. Has anyone used this before? Any feedback???

After having a child with extreme ADHD the only thing that i found that was the most help was going back though our diet and taking out as much procesed and refined food as possible. Everything has chemicals and more chemicals in it, cut as many as many/much as possible and also add omega 3 fish oils either by lots of oily fish or by tablet form and apart from that hold on and go for the very rocky ride to puberty and that usually helps too.

thank you. i have been reading about how i need to watch sugar and msg and carbs and all. It's funny, but I have always just given my kids 100% fruit juices ONLY and now that is something that is bad. He's not going to be happy with not as much juice. I am going to have to start making him drink more water. He loves milk and apple juice. Thank you for the tip for the omega 3 fish oils.

I realy think it is more about the artificial colours, flavors and preservatives as they are in everything you buy. Like cheese the lighter the colour the less yellow food colouring it has in it, yellow colour caused my cousin to break out in a hot raised nasty rash. My son used to react to a natural colour 160b(yellow) . Bread has a preservative 282 that causes bad behavior in some kids and my daughter used to get hyper on Kelloggs cornflakes prob cause of the yellow colour. There are books that go into detail about artificial colour flavor and preservatives try your library or book shop goodluck.

it's sad that we have very little foods that we can eat that are not killing us or causing negative effects on our bodies & minds. And it is very sad that the "natural" or Organic foods cost a fortune. Its a shame that it is more expensive to be healthy.

Talk is cheap, what are the ingredients? You must look at them individually to make a determination. My son was ADHD, I found after much research and trial and error, that ritalin was the best for him. I have gotten a load of crap from a lot of people, but it worked, it did not hurt him, it had minimal side effects and because it only worked for short periods of time, we could use it during the day for school and at night as needed for other activites. I tried several 'alternatives' and they did not work

The ingredients are all natural. They are Ginkgo Biloba, Scuttellaria Laterifolia (also known as Skullcap) Matricaria Recutita (also known as German Chamomile) Centella Asiatica (also known as Gotu Cola) Avina Sativa (Green Oats), also called Hawer Urtica Urens, called Umbabazane in Africa Aspalathus linearis (also know as Rooibos) I am not sure if it will work. part of me thinks it's just $30 and I could try it, but then I think I woudl be pissed if I blow $30. LOL I have done some research on other sites and these same ingredients come up as ideas on alternatives to use. I am not sure if I will try it or not. Thanks for your input though. :)

I would only like to ask a question. Is it approved by the FDA? A lot of scams going on these days about natural remedies. I don't know if I would trust it, if it doesn't have the approval. Non-FDA approved supplements can not cure or alter. There are no studies providing such information. FDA approved means that studies have been done, and proves worthiness.
