Does your child really need drugs to get through the school day? More than six million children in the United States are taking stimulant medications---including Ritalin---to treat behavioral and learning problems such as attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). But there may very well be a better way to manage your child's emotional and learning problems, and you owe it to yourself and your child to find out. Ritalin-Free Kids offers you a safe, effective, and natural alternative to stimulants. "Before you give your child stimulants, read this book." ---From the preface by Edward Chapman, M.D., clinical instructor, Harvard Medical School "I recommend this book to all parents searching for an alternative treatment to ADHD. The Ullmans demonstrate that every child can benefit from care tailored to their unique characteristics and temperment." ---Charles Moore, M.D., child and adolescent psychiatrist, New England Medical Center "As a physician who evaluates many inattentive and overactive children, I feel that we, as a society, are using stimulant medications far too often for the treatment of ADHD. I was very impressed by Ritalin-Free Kids and definitely recommend it." ---Richard Solomon, M.D., director, Allegheny Behavioral and Child Development Services, Allegheny General Hospital, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania "This clear, balanced, and persuasive book will really open your eyes to the possibility of homeopathic medicine to treat . . .

Reviews - What do customers think about Ritalin-Free Kids: Safe and Effective Homeopathic Medicine for ADHD and Other Behavioral and Learning Problems?
Changed my mind about Ritalin Apr 27, 2008
I was ready to try Ritalin with my daughter, if her ADHD started to interfere with her learning in school. I am so glad that a psychologist friend recommended this book to me. After reading this book, I am convinced that Ritalin is not the best choice. I have never understood the meaning of "homeopathic medicine", but now I do, and I will definitely take this route instead!
Years later. . . . . . Jun 27, 2007
This is one of those books that stuck with me years after reading it and I felt compelled to write a review.
Chapter 2- Life in Overdrive is a great blue print of common ADHD behavior from a toddler to adulthood. Additionally, Chp 12 & 13 offers coaching techniques which focuses on the individual. p 102 "those are only your behaviors, not the real you."
Part 3 Real Stories of Real People-Successful Homeopathic Treatment of ADD - offers some insight on how specific Homeopathic Medicine helped their child.
I found in my experience that it would have been better to go to the practitioner 1st before reading Part 3 because it was too easy to reiterate some of the behaviors mentioned in the book which masked the child's unique characteristics. After the initial visit then I would have read Part 3 to see if the recommended homeopathic medicine matched the child's characteristics. Nevertheless, the practioner does a great job asking questions that relate to the child.
Note: Years ago when I read the book some of the sources recommended on p288 required an address and telephone numbers to be updated.
Lifesaving! Apr 1, 2005
As the mother of four young children, I realized when one of my children was very young that he was an extremely high-energy, precocious bundle of energy. I found this book at my local library when I was trying to educate myself about the implications of ADHD, yet he was only three or four, so we waited a few more years before actually seeking treatment. Early on in our research, my husband and I agreed that we would do anything possible to improve his well-being without resorting to drugs. After a year under Dr. Reichenberg-Ullman's care, my seven year-old son has improved tremendously! Homeopathic treatment does not happen overnight, and it requires patience, and in our case, the first remedy did not make significant enough improvement, so we tried another, which has been nothing short of amazing! PLEASE READ THIS BOOK IF YOU OR ANYONE YOU KNOW IS DEALING WITH ADD/ADHD. Not only does the book include many case studies and real-life examples, I felt that it provided an overview of ADD/ADHD symptoms, conventional medications, and introduction to homeopathy. I have several copies that I loan to my son's teachers, coaches and family friends.
This changed our lives Apr 1, 2005
As the mother of several boys with ADHD, I can tell you that this book changed our family dynamics forever! I had been searching for help for so many yars and not wanting to use drugs. I looked at many natural options but didn't find any lasting help. We resorted to Ritalin out of despiration. They were on this for a year before a friend fround this book and brought it to my attention. The book is well written and easy to understand. I saw my boys in so many of the stories in this book and found hope again that my children could get the help that they needed without drugs. Dr Reichenberg has subsequently treated our entire family with amazing results. Homeopathy is not just for treating ADD/ADHD. You have to read this book if your family or someone you care about is struggling with this or any other physical, or emotional issues. It will change your life!
Homeopathy is amazing Jan 19, 2004
This book is fantastic. I recommend it to any person who has a ADD/ADHD child. I truly possible to make your child better without Ritalin. I may take awhile because homeopathy seems so hard, but it works. As a engineer, I don't easily believe things like this, so when I saw homeopathy work I was amazed.
