DH is struggling with getting back on track. He's on the right meds and has made huge strides, but he needs some sort of counseling or therapy. We looked into Duke's ADHD program and it looks great but DH's insurance doesn't cover them. Does anyone have a Dr they recommend? Thanks!

Several practitioners at Carolina Partners in Mental Health work with ADD. (I have a family member with it, and her psych said they don't really use ADHD with adults - usually just ADD.)

I saw something interesting on Fit TV yesterday about how a link has been discovered between the rise in ADHD, especially in children, over the last decade, to pesticides which Americans have been consuming in astronomical amounts over the same time period.

There are certain foods which no cleaning, scrubbing, or peeling can rid pesticides, because they enter to a degree which is impossible to remove. They said there are certain foods (11 of them) people should not consume, unless organic. Apples, pears, cherries, celery, potatoes, spinach, grapes, strawberries, bell pepper, peaches, red rasberries.

Apparently the link between ADHD and pesticides is becoming more known. They mentioned cases where people have switched to organic as much as possible and have seen a remarkable result in symptoms subsiding.
best,

Yes, and people have found that anti-oxidants such as OPC-3 and Resveritrol have helped. Aloe juice can help the system overcome some of the effects of pollution, too.

Dr. Jim Poole of Growing Child pediatrics is an expert on "FastBrain" as he terms ADHD. He himself is a fastbrain person. He speaks and writes on the matter. He would be a great resource for your husband.

Where did you read this? Was it a reputable source? I'd be interested in knowing, reading more. Thanks.

I used to work with college students with ADD, and something that helped some of them was using an ADD Coach. You can search for local ADD coaches and they help with the day to day things, and can be a very good resource. Most of the "work" is done over the phone. It may be worth checking into for the hubby.

I have two friends who have had success with their children by changing their dietary habits. This has involved eliminating all sodas, especially diet, and adding anti-oxidants, aloe, and vitamins. Send me a PM(direct message) and I can get you in touch with them.
