As hyperactivity in children becomes more and more common, many parents are desperate to find a solution. Although there is no quick fix—prescription medications, for example, can often make the situation worse rather than better— there is an answer that has worked for many families.
Scientific studies have shown that a change in diet—specifically, the restriction of certain foods and the addition of others—can greatly decrease a child’s hyperactive tendencies. Help for the Hyperactive Child is a user-friendly book that first explains how these dietary modifications can help, and then guides you in pinpointing the foods to which your child may be having adverse reactions. Recipes are included, along with suggestions for making other important lifestyle changes. Help for the Hyperactive Child can help your hyperactive child.
