    This is obviously traumatic for him but in this situation he knows that you are there for him and this will pass

    1) Incoming prayers.

    2) Think of ADHD as an advantage. Our pattern of thinking is different not worse. We can solve types of problems that others can not. Not sure about elementary school but the multi-tasking helped in high school and beyond once I started thinking in terms of how to use it to my advantage.

    If that were my child I would be looking very carefully at diet - removing all processed foods - and at the electromagnetic living conditions - removing all wireless and computing technology.

    I recall also a cleaning lady we had that used to take in children that were in state care. She had all sorts of trouble with them until she moved into a rural area. Then the kids were fine.

    Glad to hear he is doing better

    I've got a bro at lodge with a son who has all sorts of similar issues, they removed processed foods from his diet with great effect.

    Not sure about the computing stuff, but the same boy above now has an ipad and using it seems to have improved his consentration

    Every dr ive spoken with about the diet modification says its bogus. They say it can work but it usually only works in someone who has allergies to.something. amd the only way to find out what/ is anything is causing it is by completely eliminating all nonwhole foods and monitoring to see if behavior improves and if it does then systematically reintroducing foods one at a time till the behavior changes again. Then eliminating everthing again and adding things in pairs and groups to see if it was a combo of ingredients or just a single one. And thats thousands of dollars. And it normally doesn't work

    If you are happy with that then you need search no further.

    I was once told that doctors got about 2 days of training in diet. No doubt the curriculum was already crowded.

    That system was called the "Texas Elimination Diet" the first time I read of it. It's a very comprehensive eliminate and challenge system that can be done for free by anyone sufficiently organized or systematic. I'm somehow very disorganized (mild ADHD) but very systematic (engineer wannabe scientist) at the same time.

    A milder system is a part of "Atkins, the entire plan that's actually in the book" which is done in its entirety by very few people. I did all of the directions in the book and discovered all that indigestion I'd had all my life was specific to wheat. But it did zero to my mild ADHD symptoms.

    Yes its free in that you dont nned to pay someone or get any special equipment. However the extra cost of having to buy special foods and stuff costs thousands.

    Bingo. again why pay extra for wheatless flour products when you can buy bragain brand antacids and call it a day. I mean we try to limit his sugar intake and dark cafinated sodas and stuff like that cause that extra "energy" that is necessary for me is counterproductive for him.

    Do you not think that alkalizing a digestive system that is already not working properly may quite possibly starve the body of proper nutrients? Long term effects on health can be severe.

    As a Mason I study the hidden mysteries of nature and science and my digestive system, being a little delicate, is a mystery that I can observe daily, to my direct benefit.

    Or I can eat meat and veggies, legumes and fruits. Just ignore foods that are made with wheat and I'm good to go. After 15 years I am now able to have one meal with wheat in it per week without symptoms. Second wheat containing meal in the same week, symptoms happen. Avoiding wheat isn't hard after getting used to it. Most don't even notice.

    The focus blurred majority have stimulants buzz them. We ADHD folks have stimulants center us. I use caffeine and that's strong enough for me. If your son is on meds, probably not best to mix stimulants so caffeine is to be avoided.

    Interesting. My wife recently underwent stomach surgery. While I always kinda-sorta knew about nutrition, I now pay close attention. I was very surprised by how different I felt when I added some things to my diet and subtracted others. Changing my diet altered how I felt physically, the amount of effort I had to expend in maintaining emotional control, my clarity of thought and concentration, even how my urine smelled <--- that was unexpected!

    I have always eaten well enough to survive. What I am learning is that I can effect the amount of energy and control I have in my life (over and above mere survival) by how well I fuel my body. Perhaps when I was young I was so full of life that I didn't notice the improvement that came from eating well.

    As you may have discovered too much of some foods makes the urine quite acid and the body feels a bit hung over.
