What Experts Say


I strongly recommend Dr. Newmark's book to all parents, relatives, and friends of children with ADHD, as well as the teachers, doctors, and other professionals who work with them. Before going to the pharmacy, we can use an integrative approach to help these children succeed and fulfill their true potential. Dr. Newmark tells us just how to do that.
— Dr. Andrew Weil

Dr. Newmark has finally crafted the book that I have long been wishing for: a wonderful self-help guide for parents looking for a thoughtful and science-based natural approach to treating ADHD. This integrative/holistic style reduces or eliminates the need for stimulant medications and offers sound advice about diet, sleep, nutrients, herbs and other key modalities. The book radiates a balanced wisdom that comes so rarely from practicing physicians today..
— Scott Shannon, MD Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist; author of Please Don’t Label My Child; editor of Handbook of Complementary and Alternative Therapies in Mental Health

If I had one book to read about ADHD, this is it. It is well-written, practical and filled with the uncommonly good common sense of an experienced and compassionate clinician with fair-minded and rigorous reviews of the state of the science.
— Kathi Kemper, MD, MPH, Director, Center for Integrative Medicine; Professor of Pediatrics, Social Science Health Policy, and Family and Community Medicine, Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center

TOP THREE REASONS WHY THIS BOOK IS IMPORTANT:

1.     THE MOST EFFECTIVE TREATMENTS ARE LARGELY UNKNOWN: Good research that shows the astounding results proper nutrition and common supplements have in significantly diminishing or eliminating ADHD symptoms are largely unknown to most pediatricians, professionals and the general public and yet offer by far the most effective treatments available.

2.     WE NEED TO REVERSE THE RATIO: The majority of children diagnosed with ADHD are prescribed medication to treat it when, based on scientific research, the majority can be helped with natural treatments and only a minority need prescription medication. Parents are confused about how to best help their child with ADHD.    

3.     AN INTEGRATIVE APPROACH IS RARE: Integrative pediatricians are not available in every community, and insurance plans rarely cover complementary or alternative medicine. As a result, most families do not have equal access to the whole spectrum of medicinal wisdom it encompasses.
