The Hyperactivity Hoax by Sydney Walker
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Each year, millions of children take Ritalin, which means thousands of doctors are diagnosing them with hyperactivity or ADD. But what do these diagnoses mean? Are drugs the answer for these illnesses? And most importantly, is your child getting the proper treatment for his or her problem? In "The Hyperactivity Hoax," neuropsychiatrist Dr. Sydney Walker cogently explores the medical minefield of hyperactivity and helps parents arrive at safe, effective answers for their children, without unnecessarily drugging them with potentially dangerous mind-altering medicine. Included in his in-depth guide is: * How to determine if your child needs medical help* How to find a good doctor, a real diagnosis, and effective treatment* How to assert yourself when talking to doctors and school officials* How to evaluate both traditional and alternative approaches to treating hyperactivity and ADD* And much more invaluable information in caring for your child's health. A myth-shattering book no parent can afford to miss!
