Alternative Therapies

A friend just directed me to this MedScape article on Lifestyle and Complementary Therapies for ADHD.

The articles points out that more than 50% of American families who receive care for ADHD in specialty clinics also use complementary or alternative medical therapies such as modifying their diet or other aspects of their lifestyle. This article reviews the common alternative therapies and the research that supports (or doesn’t support) the effectiveness of those therapies. The article is worth checking out.
