    How did you have the confidence to not have your son assessed and then treat him with naturopathic remedies. Could he have add or odd If so can’t they be treated naturally

      Thanks for reading and commenting, Eleanor. My reading and experience led me to believe that the motivation for assessment, and the assessment itself, was completely flawed and not in the long-term best interests of these types of children. My particular child had developed normally in every way except in this area. The most up-to-date, forward-thinking psychiatrists are avoiding pharmaceuticals altogether and are treating all kinds of behavioural issues with diet, supplementation, exercise, stress-reducers, and significant lifestyle changes. We’ve created a world that’s toxic for children’s well-being, and the response is not pharmaceuticals that have deadly short- and long-term risks and don’t help any child actually develop in any way. And ADD and ODD are fashionable diagnostic labels made of check-lists of behaviours, they are not understood, diagnosable diseases with treatments and cures.

      That’s the shortest answer possible to your question. It’s a fabulous question, but not easily answered in a single paragraph. If you’re interested in reading more opinions from professionals about all these subjects I would REALLY recommend you spend some time on Robert Whitaker’s site http://www.madinamerica.com/ to read further about professional opinions about the labels, the children, and the drugs they are given. There’s a tsunami of evidence now against wholesale diagnosing these labels, and drugging children for them. Also, please look at my ‘reading list’ on my ‘About’ page. If you have any question, please feel free to email me at 2sydneyfox@gmail.com anytime. I may not be quick to reply, but I will reply. Best to you.
