ADHD is Not a Four Letter Word
Drug Free Strategies for Managing the Gift that is ADHD
by Karen Ryan

In this groundbreaking guide, respected nutrition expert Karen Ryan shatters the stigma of ADHD and offers an eye-opening new look at this long-misunderstood condition. Dispelling the myths that have come to define ADHD as an irreversible disorder, Karen shares the many facets that make up this gift while offering an abundance of drug-free strategies through which a child’s true creativity and character can shine.

ADHD Is Not a Four-Letter Word: Drug-Free Strategies for Managing the Gift That Is ADHD is a no-nonsense book designed to help those who live with children and teens with ADHD. There is no confusing scientific jargon here—just easy, everyday strategies to help kids get back on track. Inside, you’ll learn all about the following, and so much more:

- the real short-term and long-term consequences of treating ADHD with conventional drugs

- a safe, alternative multi-pronged treatment approach that addresses ADHD from angles drug therapy simply cannot

- hidden environmental triggers that can exacerbate ADHD

- techniques to restore a child’s productivity at school and beyond to help pave the way to a promising future

There are many different sides to ADHD and therefore no one-size-fits-all solution. Unlock the door to managing ADHD with better nutrition, improved behavioral support, and targeted education. And take back the reins without relying on dangerous medications and subjecting your child to their adverse effects. Thriving with ADHD is possible—and the secrets to making it happen are all right here in this comprehensive guide.

A beautifully written, heart warming and informative book. I’ve passed it on to everyone I know who works with children with ADHD.

David F.- Teacher, Independent School, Vancouver, BC

“Karen delivers a powerful testimony in the introduction that is a MUST READ for any parent of a child diagnosed with ADD or ADHD. Her experience nearly made me cry, and has renewed my personal mission to rid the world of such dangerous medications. Her simple and common sense approach is easy to understand and should be the Gold standard for parents that want to help their children achieve success while keeping them safe from heart breaking side effects. Keep up the good work Karen!”

Jason Edwards, Senior Vice President of Sales, NuAxon Bioscience Inc.

In this thoughtful book, the author tells you how to educate and support children with ADHD using strategies that deal with behavior management, routine and diet. It should be the “go-to” book for parents addressing the confusion surrounding ADHD.
