My 6 year old son was diagnosed with ADHD a few years back. Reluctant as I was to let him be put on medication for it, his school thought it was the best choice. I was diagnosed with ADHD as a child, and I felt like medication did me more harm than good, so that is why I’m not comfortable with my son being on medication.
Since being on medication, he does excel in his studies, but it’s a different story at home. I’ve noticed since he has been on medication that he gets angry easily, even to a point of being violent on a few occasions. Prior to the medication, my son was very sweet and lovable, yet very hyperactive – just a minor issue compared to his behavior now! Therefore, I have been actively seeking for a natural alternative without the side effects.
I was recently introduced to Solomon & Samson, a quick absorbing powder (Available in Cherry or Lemon) with a high concentration blend of vitamins and minerals. Introducing it so my son wasn’t an easy task, because he is uber picky about he eats or drinks. So, I had to get a creative by mixing it in yogurt instead since he could easily detect when a beverage was amiss. I didn’t notice a difference overnight, or even a few days…..but, I started noticing a difference in little over a week. He was more calm and focused – nothing fazed him. He is still an energetic 6 year old, but he is just like any other typical child his age!
It’s recommended that you use 2 teaspoons for every 65 lbs (30 kg) of body weight. Mix with a bit of lukewarm water, then add to beverage (or yogurt!) of choice. Drink once a day. Use half dosage first three times.
