thats what I'm looking for. I would like to have some that were on ritalin and it worked great for them, and others that were on it and didn't work, others that were never on ritalin and tried other methods to control the ADHD. If possible some parent vs kid perspectives.
My term paper last term on CD kicked ass and taught the teacher a lot, I want to continue with that trend.
I don't remember seeing so many people in here saying they or loved ones had ADHD. I'm just starting a term paper on the evils of ritalin. Would anyone be willing to answer some questions when I'm ready? The paper is due in 3 weeks so it will be soon.

Welcome to the team Kimberly. There are a lot of gluten free foods and bakeries and health food stores to help you and many regular store carry gluten free as well. Even Costco carries gluten free bread (Rudi's multigrain is in the freezer section), there rotisserie chicken is gluten free and they have other gluten free items as well. One of my favorite new products is Pacific foods gluten free cream soups that makes casseroles easier. My daughter had adhd and allergies and diet changes helped lots. She is very allergic to soy and once we got it out of her system you could really tell the difference. Do what works for you and your family!! Barb

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

We are fairly new to the gluten free world. I have a 6 yr old son with ADHD and a spouse with it as well. It is so much work to parent an ADHD child and I figured I've tried everything else so why not diet as well. Since taking most of the gluten out of his diet he's not had an episode where he is out of control. The psychologist we're working with isn't all that into it but if it works for us I'm continuing. The amount of information to learn is so overwhelming but I'm trying to just allow myself to learn as I go and not feel pressured to do this perfectly.
Thank you so much for creating this team!!! kimberly
