|aFor more than forty years, Drs. Nancy O’Dell and Patricia Cook have worked tirelessly to develop and refine the revolutionary Bender Exercise Program, which can significantly diminish or entirely eliminate the behavior associated with ADD/ADHD and LD. Medications are the primary treatments currently utilized. But these drugs treat only the symptoms of the disorder, not the underlying causes. What’s more, their use is usually accompanied by adverse side effects. Fortunately, you no longer have to depend on potentially dangerous medications to “solve” the problem of ADD/ADHD and LD. In Stopping ADD/ADHD and Learning Disabilities, the authors present their drug-free solution. In addition to detailing an eight-month exercise program, illustrated with photographs, the authors offer ways to work around the problem in school, at home, during sports activities, and in public settings. This revised and updated edition also includes findings from the authors’ most recent studies; provides the latest information on negative side effects of many drugs used to treat ADD/ADHD and LD; and addresses potentially harmful current practices in baby care––such as the use of walkers and baby swings, and keeping babies on their backs nearly all the time––and their surprising roles in the development of ADD/ADHD and LD behaviors. It’s clear that there’s an urgent need for alternative therapies and smarter choices for the treatment of ADD/ADHD and LD. That’s what Stopping ADD/ADHD and Learning Disabilities is all about.
