Hi..SugarS……there you have it. Some folks really benefit from meds, some don’t see the same degree of benefit….others nothing at all??? Other folks derive great results from healthy eating…..”really healthy eating”…..regular rigorous exercise (5 days a week maybe more), counseling, and some add meditation into their regime with good results too.

I guess it depends a lot on where you fall on the spectrum…..mild medium, severe…..how your ADD or ADHD presents……so much comes into play. I took meds for a bit in the past (a couple of years in my working days)……now nothing. I always was on the health road and that seems good for me, still am……but we are all different. Something to keep in mind is the health/exercise/meditation road results are at times a little slower to show results than meds …it may take a bit of time (maybe not) before you really notice results. But…..there is no downside….at all…….to eating healthy, exercise, meditation, and/or counseling. These things can only bring good stuff to your table….even if at some point you determine that you need the additional benefit meds can provide, the other route will still provide more than just meds alone.

Toofat.
