16 year old son with ADD and Dyslexia

I really need help with helping my son with a natural alternative to help him with his disabilities instead of his doctor putting him on prescribe 'Strattera' which may have horrible side effects. I also did take him to our local homeopathic doctor and he only gave diet advise and fish oils.
He is 16 slim built has good self-esteem; however,in school he as lack of concentration, no focus, organization, can't get assignments done. Wants to be funny and dance around be clown of the class. Shout out in class or other places at inappropriate times. When suppose to be quiet is always fidgeting. Need music to concentrate. Easily distracted,very impulsive. I can go on...He has come a long way with his dyslexia and learned much of the tools he can to pass school, also when he was first dignose with dyslexia in grade 5 they found he was at a grade 12 level with his verbal,comprehension and communication skills;however, ADD gets in the way a lot. He is addicted to sugar and other junk foods,his eating pattern if very irregular we do know diet is very important and so does he now. He does not have good sleeping patterns and has always seemed the night owl and can not get up in the mornings and sleeps all day if we let him. The only thing he seems to focus on all the time is his computer. My son and I would really appreciate any feedback to help him get a better start before school begins in the fall.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
And, when did these problems start ? Any event which you can correlate to the start of these problems ?

Tell me more about him, since you said 'I can go on..'

Any odd mental symptoms must be mentioned.

What are the diseases he has suffered since childhood ? Also mention the diseases that run in the family.

Well as a infant he was irritable and always wanted to go, go, go. He had separation anxiety where I could no even leave the room. He was creeping at 4 months old and walking around furniture at 6 months and walking at 10 months;however, he did not talk well until he was 3 and not much better at 4.He had chicken pox when he was 2 1/2 years old, other then that no other diseases. Little bit I did notice when he was young was his hand eye coordination was off. He couldn't tie his shoes until he was 7, and I remember also when he was in tae kwon do, we could not figure out why some of the moves he could not do, like getting mixed up with his left and rights. It wasn't until he was in grade 2 that his teacher notice learning abilities. We got him tested by pediatrician , she gave him a clean bill of health couldn't not find any medical problems.Had his hearing checked out, there wasn't any problems there. The speech therapist did find auditory problems, hence not tying shoes until 7 and the right and left. He is a very unintelligent youth, however, gets very frustrated with himself, when he feels he lacks or getting behind in school he either jokes about not getting things done or gets angry or buries himself on the computer. Also he may just want to sleep all day.

Few years back we had a lot of problems with him, he is a leader; however, if a person who has a stronger personality then he, he will become a follower. He got into trouble stealing a skid do with a stronger personality, breaking into cars stealing change. Egging the principal of
the school he hated. He would go AWOL and brought home by police. He has never hurt anyone though. Also never got a police record. This all happened when he was 13. We sent him to a private school the deals and helps children with issues. They found out that he is an empath and is easily distracted by others emotions in the environment or class rooms. He is a visual and Kinesthetic learner. He does need routine and always needs to be reminded to stay on task. He has a big heart but can be sometimes sarcastic and mean. He loves to laugh and help others. However, he does tell me he still has troubles sleeping at night and has dark dreams that he is always being chased or old memories. One of his issues that he has is with his dad not

Sorry got cut off there, not so much now as when he was at 13 and so on.Him and his dad are so much alike yet so different his dad is a hard man in some ways as in wanting his children to succeed, but he goes by it by being pompous and his word is law.lol. My son finds this pushy know it all and always on his back. There has never being drinking or, anyone ever to smoke in our house. So far he has no interest either to try any himself. Thank the higher powers!

In the family there is a few suicide's on the men side. There is known anxiety, panic attacks, ADD. Diseases in the family is heart disease,and diabetes, cancer. Also, there is alcoholism,and drug addicts in the family. My addiction use to be food. My pregnancy with him was easy other then a lot more nausea and vomiting then my first pregnancy. Moreover, I gained more weight with him. I did not smoke or drink or even have caffeine with him. I exercised and ate right. Though his biological father like to smoke pot and drink. He has not been with him in 15 years. He was a schedule cesarean baby because it seems my body does not produce the hormones that help me contract the uterus. If anything else please let me know

Hmm.. can you please answer these questions :

Is he very lazy and is prone to procrastinate things ?

Is he haughty or arrogant at times ?

Does he act selfishly at times ?

Is he warm blooded or chilly ?

If something really interests him, can he do it very quickly ?

Does he sit in a chair with his entire body involved.

Does he ever pace the floor, cannot stand still in one spot.

Cannot wear wool clothing ?

Is he messy and disorganized ?

Can he become very fault finding and critical when feeling low?
sameervermani last decade
OK let me see...

First question..Yes



4th..warm blooded


6th ..explain this more?

7th..At times this does happen, but can have time of quietness. he is more not staying focused.

8th..cannot wear wool or fleece

9th..Oh ye! example..can never find things in his own bedroom, school work never found or completed assignments. His work is always at bottom of his backpack,bottom of locker, under his bed, or never found at all. Though his personal self is never messy, very good hygiene and well dressed.

10th...yes, both to himself and others, he may weep,for what he believes for no apparent reason. I haven't seen much of that in the little while, but did this a lot in the past.

Okay Dlynn, then please give him a total of 3 doses of Sulphur 30C to be taken equally spaced on a single day.

Dissolve 2 pellets of Sulphur 30c in a 250 ml plain spring water bottle.

Give him a cap full from this bottle 3 times in a day at a gap of two hours.

Some restrictions:
1/. Nothing should enter the mouth for 40 minutes prior to, or after taking the remedy.
2/. Do not touch the tablets with your hands, tip them into the cap of the container they came in and then into the water bottle.
3/. Avoid coffee, tea (including green), and other sources of caffeine such as some fizzy drinks and large amounts of chocolate, except where this would cause a drastic change in consumption
4/. Avoid wearing perfume/aftershave, or exposure to anything with a strong smell while under treatment. This includes any and all essential oils, and incense.
5/. Avoid the consumption of excessively spicey foods
6/. The use of medicinal herbs, either as 'teas' or supplements should be avoided during Homoeopathic treatment, as should the use of over the counter medication, unless this has been recommended by an MD.
7/. Nothing of a medicinal nature should be applied to the skin

Let me know in 5 days after these 3 doses, or earlier if you see a change.
