Dr. Bob's Guide to Stop ADHD in 18 Days???

Hi,

Our son has been having a lot of difficulty in first grade with his ADHD. We saw the book listed on Amazon with 40 review most of them positive. Has anyone heard of or used this book? We are trying to find alternatives first before we turn to meds.

Thanks.

I haven't heard, or read it so I don't know. I do know that I am always wary of things that give timelines, or say that they "cure" ADHD. Sometimes it's just flashy wording to get people to buy the book, system, etc and they acknowledge that there isn't a cure. Sometimes it's bunk and going after people's hope that they can make it all go away. Just a word to the wise.

I feel the same way. However, there were a lot of decent reviews on Amazon. We are kind of in the dark about diet and ADHD beyond the regular Omega, etc.

It kind of reminds me of "Lose 10 pounds in 3 days".

I was just going to suggest that. Or if you have a used book store in your area, that might be a good place to try, or offload it later if it's no good.

Re: Dr. Bob's Guide to Stop ADHD in 18 Days???

After you read it, please leave a review here for us. 18 days though... Let me just say here and now, I know this is stretching it, but there is no cure for ADD or ADHD. Maybe the content of the book is good.

Re: Dr. Bob's Guide to Stop ADHD in 18 Days???

From what I've seen in the reviews, it looks like a sugar/dairy/gluten free diet, coupled with taking natural supps (fish/flax oil, vitamins, etc) and chiropractic adjustments (?!). Looking over his website he's got the same info along with links you can buy natural supplements and detox products (which you can also buy at your local Whole Foods/Vitamin Shoppe store).

Um.

I might look this over at a library or check one of the local bookstores to see if they have it in stock and read it in the store, but that's as far as I'd go. I think you'll get more out of Dr. Daniel Amen's Healing ADD book, which I highly recommend.

None of what Dr. Bob is writing about is new.

In terms of diet affecting ADD, I don't think it'd take a genius to know if you eat bad food you'll feel bad and if you eat healthier foods you'll feel better. That being said, I've seen a difference literally overnight (I've got inattentive ADD) after I changed my diet based of my physical trainer's (at the time) recommendations.

What I did was pay more attention to the acid/alkaline balance in food (In summary: try to eat meat, lots of veggies, and don't stuff yourself), dropped milk, high GI carbs, and most processed foods and bread. I noticed a big difference in my ability to think better, but it wasn't a "cure" by any means.

Same thing with supplements. I've noticed no difference with fish oil and vitamins (still take it for the overall health benefit, though). Phosphatidylserine has had a noticeable difference with my short term memory - I don't have to write things down anywhere near as much as I used to. Unfortunately, only the Vitamin Shoppe brand seems to work and they're having manufacturer issues with it so it hasn't been in the store for a few months now. Boo.

I've also had chiropractic adjustments and have absolutely no idea where ADD would fit into being treated by it.

Basically, save your $$ when it comes to this book.

You can get PS (phosphatidyl-Serine) from taking Lecithin too, right?

Re: Dr. Bob's Guide to Stop ADHD in 18 Days???

According to what I just looked up, Lecithin has phosphatidylcholine, not serine.

Haven't tried any choline products, that I can think of anyway, so I might have to give this one a shot.

I'm not sure but it's not a fake. Just not sure how effective it really is. The guy in this video explains everything in this video though.

He is full of crap. He blames adhd on transfat, holds up letters like Sesame street characters and promotes a book that is completely impossible.
