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..

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.

About the Book

ADHD Without Drugs: A Guide to the Natural Care of Children With ADHD

For 20 years, Dr. Sandy Newmark has specialized in successfully treating children diagnosed as having ADHD using methods other than psychostimulant medications.

Now he has put his best advice into a new book, ADHD Without Drugs: A Guide to the Natural Care of Children with ADHD.

This book is written for every adult who cares for or influences the care of children with ADHD: parents first and foremost, plus caregivers, coaches, counselors, educators, physicians, psychiatrists, social workers and therapists – anyone who wants to learn how to better help all children with ADHD succeed.

In the book, Dr. Newmark explains how to treat the whole child, not just the symptoms of ADHD, using safe and natural methods. His successful treatment strategies are written in plain language that parents can understand easily and implement immediately. He also dispels the myths and misinformation surrounding ADHD, as he explains the latest research concerning what ADHD actually is, what causes it, and how it can be treated.

For those children who do need conventional medical treatment, he presents a research-based evaluation of the benefits and risks of the most common ADHD medications

Parents of any child suspected of or diagnosed with ADHD, even those already taking medication, will find this book invaluable for their child’s health, happiness, and success.
