‘An excellent read for anyone interested in ADHD, essential reading for anyone trying to deal with /treat their own or their child's condition.’

Foods Matter, December 2005

A fresh look at ADHD, the controversial condition that is being increasingly diagnosed in children in the developed world and treated with powerful drugs. Professor Basant Puri chronicles the rise of ADHD as a ‘diagnostic entity’, how it has been regarded over the past 100 years and how current treatment with powerful amphetamine-like drugs was found to ‘work’. These drugs may help to reduce the symptoms, but at what long term cost to the individuals concerned? Professor Basant Puri examines the underlying metabolic problems and dietary imbalances that may lead to hyperactive behaviour, and the ways in which these deficiencies can be addressed. He also looks at the conditions that often co-exist with ADHD, especially dyspraxia, which may have a similar root cause. Parents and carers of children with ADHD will find new hope in combating this relentless condition.
