Tens of millions of children in the United States are trying to control their ADD/ADHD with abrasive chemicals. These drugs have a host of serious side effects including anxiety, insomnia, and loss of appetite, nausea, increased blood pressure, and even psychosis. We think most people would agree that it is not in a child’s best interest to be exposed to a chemical with so many dangerous side effects. Additionally, long term studies have shown that even if chemicals provide an initial improvement in focus, that improvement disappears over time while side effects persist. Fortunately, there are safe, natural alternatives.
Naturopathic physician, Dr. Steven F. Van Lopik, has years of experience in New Lenox treating children and adults with ADD/ADHD. There are a wide variety of behavioral therapies and lifestyle adjustments that can lead to significant improvement in focus, attention span, and cognition.

“My son was diagnosed with ADHD at 3 ½ years old and I did not want him to take strong pharmaceutical drugs. I followed the testing recommendations and natural treatments and today my son in third grade and has absolutely no symptoms of ADHD. His life is changed forever.” Lisa G.
