If the research I’m seeing is accurate, kids treated for ADHD properly have the possibility to reduce or eliminate its affects as adults. Tweens and early teens have rapidly developing brains, and their brains can still do some rewiring. BTW, any experts out there who know this to be true or false, please chime in. My only expertise is dealing with myself, and having no idea I had this condition until my 50’s.

So doing everything we can while they are still young enough to rewire is, to me, absolutely critical. Given that we are just big bags of chemicals, everything we consume can change our biochemistry. Try everything, look for what works. It may be different for each of us.
