ADHD
What would the natural route be for the above. Although not confirmed medically, I know my 10 year old son has this. No interest in school work, homework. Very hyperactive, yet can sit for hours playing playstation, or string an elastic band 'bridge'??

I would recommend that you consult both a Naturopath to assist you with a nutritional support plan and natural remedies to calm his nervous system, as well as a child psychologist who specialises in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. Both the internal dynamics as well as the behaviour need to be addressed - there is no remedy that will just do this. It will be a dynamic and active process to get him into a new way of relating and behaving, natural medicine will support him in this.
