Reply To: Teen admittedly quit trying at school


I have read all the touching stories above, and I agree, that there are biological and psychological drivers to adhd and related mood disorders or brain dysfunctions, but take heart, functional medicine doctors and naturopaths have the ability to test your children and find out exactly what the underlying disruptions are stemming from: it could be genetic, like MTHFR or COMT genes, but even genetics are turned on or off by environments, ie, lifestyle choices, and dietary ingredients, toxins, infections and endocrine disruptors. This is a complicated equation, but a good alternative doctor can help your family come to the root cause and treat accordingly, often eliminating the need for medications. Isn’t that what most parents want?
