Alernatives for ADHD Video #1

In this blog post, I’d like to share a video on Alternatives for ADD/ADHD. This is an area that I’ve been putting more focus on, and I’d like to share some of my findings.

In this first video – I share how you can use alternatives as part of a comprehensive treatment plan for ADD/ADHD. I also share the guiding principles you can use when deciding on an alternative treatment.

Please share your thoughts and comments below. I’d love to hear your perspectives.

Dr. Kenny

  1. I was directed to this page by the link in your e-mail, but there is no Video#1 about alternative treaments for ADHD anywhere that I can see. Just a big blank white space in the middle of the page??? Do I need to click another button or go to another page to see the video?

  2. Great video! It is necessary for many parents to know that there are alternative treatments. Medication alone is often not the answer. Parents need to understand that they have other options, but those options need to be handled safely. I so believe in the team approach when treating a child and the pediatrician is a critical part of that team. It is important for parents to share everything they are doing, so the professionals can provide their best input.I look forward to the next video.

  3. Is there any evidence of efficacy for treatment of ADD with Omega 3 fatty acids? There are so many companies producing omega 3 products and marketing them for mood, mind or body. There is an over the counter product called “ADD” that purports to be backed up with research, done in France I believe. Does anyone know if evidence does exist?

  4. Thank you so much for the video. I agree with Leslie the music is a bit much, especially for the distractable adult with ADD. Perhaps a simpler piece to music with less musical interludes be better. I would also suggest keeping the videos more simple, I found around the 5 minute mark I was not paying as much attention as I wanted to.

    Your information is always much appreciated. I wish that there were more Dr’s out there to help especially with Adult ADD.

  5. Dr. Kenny,

    The video is informational and easy to follow. I agree that a team approach is huge in the treatment of ADHD.

    Thank you so much for your valuable time.

    Warm regards,

  6. The music is much but the video is wonderful. Thank you for sharing it with us. I have children with ADHD and find a team works so much better.
    Take Care,

  7. Thanks for posting – the info conveyed was both relevant and useful. I am part of the 11% that has not disclosed the use of alternatives to family doc/pediatrician. I want support and current info on my child’s condition and treatment choices from med community and find very little of both where we live. I have become the expert and advocate when I would rather just be the parent. Until my child is old enough to understand himself fully, advocate for himself and participate in his treatment options, (or a practitioner comes to town with a real understanding of ADD in its totality), we will continue to rely on internet providers like yourself for guidance as we stumble along, doing the best that we can with the tools that we own.

    • Hi Kelleigh,
      Thanks for your comment.
      Actually – the stat was that only 11% DO share with their doctors… Most people don’t.
      I can understand your sentiment that you’d prefer to just be the parent, and not have to be the advocate and the expert. But that is the situation right now for so many parents. I’m glad that you have found this site and information helpful to you.
      And especially when it comes to alternative treatments – parents really need to take an advocacy and educational role to ensure that they get the care they need.
      Dr. Kenny
