Publisher's Summary

In his practice, Dr. James Greenblatt has seen the positive effects of treating individuals rather than simply prescribing medication for their ADHD symptoms. Finally Focused details the natural methods used to treat problems such as nutritional deficiencies of magnesium or zinc, dysbiosis (a microbial imbalance inside the body), sleeping difficulties, and food allergies, all of which - unbeknownst to many - can cause or exacerbate the symptoms of ADHD. By exploring each of these possibilities in Dr. Greenblatt's Plus-Minus Healing Plan, parents will finally be able to get the assistance they need in providing true wellness for their children, whether or not they're already on medication. ADHD is a medical disorder, not a discipline problem, and this book addresses each individual's unique pattern of biological weaknesses to get at the root of the issue.

An extremely good book on this disorder.<br />

I've read many books on this subject and this is by far the best. I can't wait to start implementing the outlined strategies with my son and myself.

Excellent!

As a healthcare professional myself I find this book to be a wonderful tool for parents and practitioners. I’ve heard Dr. Greenblatt speak at conferences. His sincere concern for our children and his expertise is reflected in each chapter.

Very good book!

This book has given me hope with my ADHD boy. I recommend this book to every person with ADHD, no matter the age. He is a Doctor that wants people to try natural treatments first, or he gives advice how to minimize the side effects of drugs.

Insightful, practical, hopeful

This book gave me hope for helping my child. I believe so much of behavior is tied to nutrition and hormonal balance. This provides a very practical step by step process for how to treat adhd. I love that his first response is nutrition, vitamins and supplements and not meds. Meds have their place but should not be step one and he makes that clear. Our physician said going to a psychiatrist would be the short path to solve our child’s problems but he reluctantly gave us a referral for neurologist. The doctor was not considering other brain factors (childhood trauma) that have made meds ineffective or problematic. With the neurologist we are able to get the biological testing done the author prescribed and not simply a behavior chart that says our child has adhd.

I needed this book in my life right about now.

This is a shining light for a parent of a child with ADHD. Thank you Dr. Greenblatt for such a well researched well explained but most of all kind and understandable approach to my kids condition. I have just started with the proses to balance my child but your advice on how to react and the approach to his condition has changed my life! Thank you so much your book. It came to my life at the moment I needed it the most!

Awesome

My son is on ADHD medication and there are so many excellent tips on natural remedies to get him to Focus to hopefully get him off the medication. He has been taking the magnesium suggested for the last six days and it is already helping him in the evening to wind down and go to sleep easily! I am definitely going to try the other supplements recommended and get him tested for allergies. Thank you!

Loved this book

Would you listen to Finally Focused again? Why?

As a grandparent of two children diagnosed with ADHD I found this book so informative and easy to understand. I will listen to this book again because Dr. Greenblatt not only gave you so much invaluable information but he made it seem as if he were talking to you personally. I will also buy the hard cover book as an additional reference.
