Treating ADHD/ADD Without Medication


Faced with an ADD/ADHD diagnosis, people are often curious whether there are natural remedies for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. The short answer is: yes! Dr. Neal has been researching alternative treatments for ADD throughout his decades-long career, and medication is not his first choice of treatment.

There are a host of other options that are less invasive and that work with the body’s own systems for healing and body balance of homeostasis. Alternative treatments for ADD have no side effects, and some can create lasting change without forming dependency on medications or supplements.
