"My patients always value alternative therapies and referring them to this book makes my job much easier."
- Esteban A. Genao, M.D., pediatrician
"Conventional therapies normally address only the symptoms of an illness, not the cause. It is clear they are not the answer in the long run. Addressing the cause of A.D.D. is the first big step. Nutrition is a major key and The A.D.D. and A.D.H.D. Diet is richly filled with specific ways to build a healthy diet for the child or the adult affected by this disorder. This book is an enlightened and important contribution to giving children and adults diagnosed with A.D.D. or A.D.H.D. the gift of a quality life."
