A great resource for kids with ADHD, LDs or other neurological developmental disorders
Dr. Megson is widely acclaimed in the field of autism research for her work in discovering biomedical treatments for these brain-based diseases.
Biomedical treatment for these disorders is often held to be "alternative" medicine, but Dr. Megson does not practice "alternative" medicine. She simply uses scientific methods to treat the biomedical imbalances that keep the brain and neurological system from functioning properly. This includes the appropriate use of medications, but may also involve dietary changes and supplements where tests show the child is not absorbing or utilizing nutrients properly.
Did you know, for instance, that the prestigious medical journal Pediatrics pubished a British study last year that showed that fish oils worked AS WELL AS stimulant medication to treat AD/HD? I bet your pediatrician doesn't know that, but he should. This should be the first line of treatment for AD/HD, not the last resort.
We are very, very fortunate to have such a well-respected physician here in Richmond, a place where most pediatricians simply dispense Ritalin without thinking twice or doing any research beyond what their pharmaceutical rep tells them.
