Q.

Natural remedy?

Hi Doc,
I was wondering if there are any decent natural remedies I could try? I am an adult male, 37 yrs old and concentration is something I just dont have. I am in a new job as well, I do study at work and I REALLY struggle during exams times.

I have been trying ADDvanced for adults, but dont see much of a difference.

Much appreciated!
F

Dear F,

All natural remedies, as with ADDvance, are based on high doses of omegas.

In addition to this, a change in diet will be help, if followed properly. A very common diet, and one of the first to arise many years ago, is the Feingold diet which is a high protein, low carbohydrate diet. Common to all diets for ADHD is eliminating (as much as possible) your sugar, caffeine, alcohol and tobacco intake. Avoiding preservatives and additives is just as important. I would suggest researching the Feingold diet as he describes exactly what to look out for, and what to avoid.

Best of luck,
Delia

F - I have tried all the so-called natural remedies and they are mostly just a ripoff. Short of prescribed meds the only other thing that has really worked for me is good long session on a spinning bike or one of the other machines in the gym. Works like magic I promise!!!
