Dall'autore: Notes from the author of "Healing the Hyperactive Brain":
"Healing the Hyperactive Brain: Through the New Science of Functional Medicine" is a book that I have written in response to the desperate cries of so many parents who want to help their children without resorting to Ritalin or other worrisome drugs. This book is intended to provide guidance to parents and adult ADHD sufferers, enabling them to become knowledgeable and proactive in the management of this troublesome condition.
An ever-growing number of parents, teachers and healthcare professionals are demanding safer and better answers for this disturbing and potentially destructive condition. "Healing the Hyperactive Brain" was written to address this need. It is based on my work as a medical researcher and medical educator in the field of ADHD as well as the work of forward thinking researchers and clinicians from around the world. Additionally, this book is biographical as I describe the methods I have used to uncover the causes of ADHD in my own life and my son's life and how I have managed to turn this condition into an important asset in our lives.
"Healing the Hyperactive Brain" is the most comprehensive book ever written about the many factors contributing to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). It is also an organized and authoritative presentation of the effective, drug-free approach, which is now being taught to healthcare professionals around the world. This approach to managing ADHD:
Carries no risk of doing harm and is free of unpleasant side effects.
Improves ADHD symptoms as well as the person's overall function and quality of life.
Helps to correct the underlying causes of the disorder rather than just suppressing symptoms.
Improves the long-term prognosis for the individual with ADHD.
This book is easily understood by the layperson and yet it is comprehensive enough that physicians wishing to explore science-based, drug-free alternatives will find it to be a valuable resource.
In the first section:
The neurology underlying ADHD is explained in a simple and practical manner, helping the reader to understand how the ADHD affected brain is "wired".
In the second section:
Risk factors that set the stage for the development of ADHD are examined (genetic, nutritional, toxicological and psychological).
In section three:
Breakthrough scientific findings from our research center and from other centers around the world are presented to demonstrate the many correctable physiological problems that have been found to occur in those with ADHD, and how these physiological problems can affect the brain.
The fourth section:
Describes in understandable terms advanced methods for evaluating the individual with ADHD in order to clarify the various social, psychological, toxicological and physiological problems that have led to their specific problems.
Includes ten chapters that describe in detail a strategy for treating ADHD, which is comprehensive, drug-free and highly effective.
Finally, section six:
Is a concise summary of the principles outlined in the book but written in a more technical style so that a healthcare professional can gain an understanding of the basic elements of this program in less than one hour. The intent of this last section is so that people can lend this book to their doctor who can quickly become competent to work with them in this drug-free approach to treating ADHD.
