People share information on Passionflower, Pedi-Active for treating ADHD symptoms naturally, plus story on Pedi-Active A.D.D. manufacturer admitting to unsubstantiated ADHD claims.

Natural Alternatives for ADHD

Passionflower - Passiflora incarnata

The following is excerpted from the Health Search newspaper published by Wilson Publications, Owensboro, KY 42303

Popular since the Aztec civilization as a sedative, diaphoretic and analgesic, passionflower has numerous chemicals to beneficially influence the brain, nervous system and the circulation. Non-toxic, it is widely used in childhood nervous conditions.

As a sedative, passionflower is a preferred herb for treating insomnia; one wakes rested without a sedated feeling. As an antispasmodic it is helpful in Parkinson's disease, asthma especially with much spasmodic activity, seizures and hysteria.

"I muscle test my son to see what supplements he needs. He does call for Pedi-Active in spurts. He says it helps him concentrate and it does seem to help.

We will continue to use it.

Muscle testing is a form of kineseology that can be life saving. You test each vitamin by holding it close to your body and asking whether you need it or not. Your body will answer the questions you ask. It sounds really weird. But my son and I lived in a toxic house and were VERY ill. I was taught this method of testing vitamins and it pulled me off the death bed. THE most important technique I ever learned.

I live in USA. I think that everyone needs to learn this technique. I wrote down all the supplements that you had in alternative treatments and tested them on my son. Found out that he needs Nutri-kids School Aid, Gotu Kola and NAET.

Fortunately I know how to do NAET, so we will continue using it. So I am adding the Nutri-kids school Aid and Gotu Kola to his daily muscle testing vitamins. I test my own vitamins at least three times a day as I am still dealing with mercury toxicity. I want to thank you for you web page. I am on my way there next to find out where to get the Nutrikids.

Again, I can not tell you how important the muscle testing techniques is. I know several people who use it. There are a few methods of doing it."

"Thanks for the opportunity to speak about Pedi-active. I have a 6 year old PDD-NOS child who has problems regulating his activity in school. Pedi-active is the only product that has given him any results. I have tried at least a dozen different products and have always come back to pedi-active."

"I am a strong advocate for pedi-active. Although I don't feel it is the cure all, it has definitely helped by taking the "edge" off things. My son is attention deficit inattentive type-without hyperactivity. I tried so many alternatives, many of which helped, but I could only take them so far (like neurofeedback). I was reluctant to try pediactive because I don't like medication (natural or chemical). I did some research which was difficult because info on this product is hard to come by, but I determined that the product was safe, so I tried it. My son used to have outbursts (screaming, punching walls, slamming doors, ete.). He doesn't have them when he is taking these vitamins. He takes 2 tablets twice a day. He loves them, and he says he feels better when he takes them. They are expensive-so when I run out, sometimes it takes a while before I can get him more. Two weeks is his limit before he falls back into old behaviors and starts with the outbursts. I also noticed that it takes a while for the vitamins to build up in his system and for the outbursts to subside. He was in a behavior management class, but is now mainstreamed. He still has a behavior chart, but does well as long as he's on the vitamins. Like I said, the vitamins alone are not a cure all. He has other supports to help him, but he's on no medication. I am considering increasing his dosage-trying the vitamins 3 times a day-to see if it makes a difference. It will be worth the money. I will let you know.
