Finally Focused by James Greenblatt, MD
Dr. James Greenblatt has seen thousands of men, women and children with symptoms of ADHD- hyperactivity, inability to focus, impulsiveness, and sometimes irritability. Instead of just prescribing a medication, this doctor actually listens to his patients, trying to help them find out the root cause of their symptoms.
Through his work, Dr. Greenblatt has found numerous triggers for ADHD, including food allergies, dysbiosis, sleeping difficulties, and nutritional deficiencies. After diagnosing the root cause, he is able to make changes to the individual's diet and sleep habits to help their ADHD! Sometimes he still has to prescribe prescription medication, but the integrative approach tends to minimize the harsher side effects.
I found this book to be a breath of fresh air! So many doctors just want to prescribe medication without looking at other possible treatments. Having one child with ADHD, this book greatly encouraged me! I am going to try some of Dr. Greenblatt's natural approaches before we try a prescription medication.
This book is a fantastic resource for anyone looking for a more natural approach to their health or their child's health. Highly recommend! I received this book for free from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion.
