Treating ADHD Symptoms Without Medication: Free Special Report Examines Alternative ADHD Treatments
Date:7/16/2008

In this free expert handbook, ADDitude magazine's top scientific advisors investigate and explain non-drug therapies - including fish oil, behavior therapy, working-memory training, green time and neurofeedback - that may relieve ADHD symptoms in children and adults with ADHD. Learn how nutrition, exercise and supplements can help treat ADHD symptoms.

NEW YORK, July 16 /PRNewswire/ -- ADDitude magazine, the leading publication for families and adults living with attention deficit disorder (ADHD), today released an expert report on the non-medical treatment of ADHD symptoms. Top ADHD doctors and treatment specialists contributed to the free ADDitude Guide to Alternative ADHD Treatment (available online at http://www.adhdreports.com/alternative-adhd-treatment/), which investigates and clearly explains the benefits and risks of natural ADHD therapies like fish oil.

For the nearly 2 million parents of American children diagnosed ADHD, Adderall, Strattera and Ritalin are household names - familiar and well-documented treatments for ADHD symptoms. Natural ADHD treatments like neurofeedback, working-memory treatment and omega-3 fatty acids may be less recognizable, but are they any less effective in combating distractibility and impulsivity?

The ADDitude Guide to Alternative ADHD Treatment aims to answer this question with information from top industry experts on, for example, strategies for using behavior therapy with ADHD children. ADHD doctors also recommend omega-3 fatty acids to sharpen mental focus, and explain the ideal balance of EPA and DHA in fish oil supplements. And they present balanced descriptions of neurofeedback and working-memory treatment -- the brain exercises that promise reduced impulsivity and increased attentiveness.

Finally, the ADDitude treatment report outlines ways that ADHD children and adults can change their diet and exercise to improve executive functions like sequencing, working memory, prioritizing, and sustaining attention.

In this age of As-Seen-on-TV miracle cures, trusted information like ADDitude's is more important than ever for parents of children with ADHD and for adults with ADD trying to determine how alternative ADHD treatments can work in concert with traditional medications for the greatest treatment impact.
