ADHD spectrum of disorders is a growing problem among children in this country. The traditional approach has been to place children on drugs and also some type of counseling. Ritalin and Adderal prescriptions have skyrocketed over the past decade. There has been a growing concern about the over prescribing of these medications; there are real side effects to these medications including cardiac risk, stunting of growth, and increased risk of suicide.
At Lask Family Wellness, we offer a safer, non-drug approach to working with kids and adults who have difficulty concentrating, focusing, and/or sitting still. We look at the whole person and determine if there are toxins in the child’s system, dietary issues, and finally if there is an imbalance in the brain. If the brain is not communicating between the two hemispheres properly, then the child will experience a disconnect and it will cause a developmental delay to occur. Many times it’s the right hemisphere that is lagging behind in it’s development, so we structure a program to stimulate the left side of the body.
I have done extensive study with Dr. Yannick Pauli who is a physician in Switzerland that specializes in treating ADHD kids naturally. We have been getting phenomenal results with kids and are able to get them to function better in school while getting them off the dangerous medications. Call Dr. David Lask to find out more about this unique program and stay tuned for more blogs about this topic.
