If you or someone you love has ADD/ADHD and you’re looking for a Natural Holistic Alternative approach to living a drug-free life, this blog post will give you a wealth of information.
Every parent wants their child to thrive and live a normal and happy childhood. However, for too many children, the experience of living with ADD/ADHD and its pharmaceutical “solutions” stand in the way to optimal health and happiness. I have lived through this experience with my own child and I want you and your family to understand there is an alternative to pharmaceutical drugs and remedies that blur your child’s life and mind.
I am Brenda Baker. Thank you for taking the time to visit my first blog, as I introduce myself. I have always been passionate about helping people. For 20 years, I worked internationally, helping orphan children find forever homes through adoption. Today, I will share a brief story of how I went from working in International Adoptions to becoming an Enzyme Nutritionist, Traditional Naturopath, Master Herbalist, and Digestive Health Specialist, based in Greenville, SC.
ADD/ADHD Fear, Disbelief, Guilt and Panic
Imagine for a minute… You’re sitting in the psychologist’s office, awaiting the results of the battery of tests recently done on your child! The psychologist comes in and says, “Before we review the results, I want to say I have never seen a child this disassociated with society. He is 11 years old. He cannot read or write, and he is barely on a first-grade level.” Shaking her head, she continues, ” I am unsure he will ever catch up! He is Severe ADHD, Dyslexic, Dysgraphic, and Borderline Asperger’s.”
FEAR: Immediately, your heart stops beating. You’re sick to your stomach, and you are convinced you are the worst parent ever… Must we put him on medication we tried years ago that caused him horrible side effects?
DISBELIEF: How could this be? Is this a result of birth, living in an orphanage? He was “different”, a bit hyper, but after all, he is a boy. Right? He is just a boy!
GUILT: I spent years helping people adopt children internationally to complete their forever family. Was I so busy helping others, I did not see this?
PANIC: CALL the doctor! He needs drugs. He has to learn.
Two years later, my son walked into my office, one day, and shouted, “I am not taking these drugs anymore. They are killing me, and you are going to figure out what we are going to do about it!”
Those words will always be a part of his story and mine. They changed our lives forever. I knew I had to help him, but how? After researching endlessly, I went back to school to learn how to help him become prescription free.
This blog will share more of his story and stories of other clients, who said goodbye to living a life of poor health, pain, and exhaustion, desperate for answers…
