Confusion about ADHD remediesI am writing here to get some insight for those experienced with homeopathy. I really cannot afford a professional consultation or I would have done that long ago. I have three kids. The older two are the ones I am concerned with right now. I was on here reading the archives and found a post with a ton of remedies for ADHD, they fit for quite a bit of them, but then it is only for some of the symptoms. Do I go with whatever remedy has the most symptoms that fit and work on the worst of the symptoms first? I hope someone can respond because I have tried other things and they are not working I put off on this because it was so expensive. Let me know if it would be best to post their major symptoms. Thanks.

Second child, 4 year old male, head is 21 inches, 38 inches tall, about 40 pounds. Very fussy eater, loves sugar and salt. Only eats little bits at a time. Refuses dinner, but constantly requesting 'snacks'. Literally runs from vegetables. Likes, grilled cheese, plain bread, white pasta, hotdogs, bacon, pancakes, chicken, french fries, sweetened cereal. When my husband gets him a treat(candy/gum) he will eat the whole package at once. There is no telling this kid no, if he wants to do it, he does it. Very impatient and demanding. Throws things and yells/swears if I try to set limits. Will just leave even if I tell him to stay inside. His eating and behavior issues started about 2 year old. I don't know if it from being spoiled by dad and copying his sister's bad examples. He is very indecisive, and once he makes a decision, often changes his mind. Otherwise he is pleasant, he loves doing puzzles, building with blocks and kinex, play dough,playing outside in nature. He will stay playing at these things awhile. Also likes card and board games, computer and video games and painting. In some ways he seems really smart, but is resistant to my teaching of reading and writing letter and numbers. Has really sharp memory. Prefers older playmates, but will play with younger children if that is all that is around. He is very mean to younger brother, but I am told that is normal. (I was an only child) In the evening he is climbing the walls (literally) and jumping on furniture. Been doing that since a toddler. Only major situation for him is the arrival of his little brother. He is really mean and bossy with his friends too. Refuses to pick up and put away toys. Promises to behave if I give him (blank) usually something off limits. Refuses to sit in car seat. Constantly asking for a drink.
I think that is about it. I will try to attach photos of each. I know it sounds like their diet is atrocious, and I believed that I could help them by modifying it, but I have been working on that for 2 years now, and I am met with resistance on their part and my husband's. He is slowly starting to come around, but he still gives in and buys them junk food, because that is all they will eat. When they see me in the kitchen making something from scratch, they get after him to take them out to McDonald's or to pizza shop. I have spent much time and money researching diet and supplements. Trying to get them to eat healthier, but usually I end up giving it away or throwing it away because they won't touch it. My daughter refuses to take the vitamin supplements I got her. She will at least eat some whole foods, my son will literally run out the door when presented with a normal dinner plate. He won't even eat chicken soup. I have never known a kid to not like chicken soup.Thanks again for your time.

I have narrowed the list down somewhat for daughter. Lacheis, helleborus niger, natrum muriaticum, and lycopodium clavatum. For my son, the lycopodium clavatum is the only one I come up with so far. Anyone else have any suggestions, please. This is really frustrating and my last option until I can generate some $$$ and time to travel aways.

We also are weaning her off the gluten because she has symptoms consistent with gluten intolerance and I understand that can cause behavorial issues as well. Also, artificial colors, sugars, preservatives are known to cause behavorial issues and ADHD symptoms. All these things cause my DD to be a little grump, aggitated, can't focus, cranky, mean, just a nightmare. She's completely different when we take these things out of her diet.
It's worth a try. Definitely hard to enforce, but certainly very helpful at least for my daughter.

Thanks for the post. I have been working on his diet, but he is very resistant and I don't have the support of my husband. I suppose my next tactic is to get a lock for the cupboards and frig. He is big enough to get his own stuff if I say no. He really doesn't drink much milk, and the milk we drink is raw. I have heard alot about the gluten topic lately on my NT board. I did get Dr. Fife's Cooking With Coconut Flour book, but so far all the recipes have been a bomb. My husband says he is just being a boy. I just can't get him to even let me try a day let alone a week of taking this stuff out of his diet. I am not giving up. Thanks for the support. Now if only the homeopath would respond, I'd really like to hear what his opinion is. Good luck to you with your dd.

I have 2 of her cookbooks. The cooking and baking methods are different than what we are use to. But her recipes do work and taste good (when followed exactly). The web address does say no weight gain. And she is correct. But I use all her recipes for my son, who I think is allergic to dairy, gluten, sugar, food coloring and those unneccessary preservatives. Her desserts are VERY sweet and VERY rich. It is very hard to eat as much as you would like. LOL And they are SO much better for the whole family anyway! Anyway, just my experience with this subjetc. And I plan to buy all of her cook books!
Praying for you and your journey to a better healthier life for your children.
