Natural Alternatives: Defend-OL, Developmental Integration Technique


Mark sent us the following information about this......

"I am and Independent Business Owner with Rexall. I wanted to inform you of a few products that I have found very helpful with children, especially ADD/ADHD. One of my business partners is a pediatrician and has found these products to be very helpful in about 30% of his patients who then do not need other drugs.

The products are:
Nutri-Kids School Aid - a breakfast nutrient drink mix to improve brain function.
Calmplex 2000 - A homeopathic medicine for stress - helps children focus.
Defend-OL - A homeopathic remedy that has been outstanding for allergies.

I have 4 boys and one had a terrible time in school - just not being able to concentrate. I am thankful that he was not diagnosed with ADD or ADHD, but his grades suffered. After trying the Calmplex 2000 and School Aid, he greatly improved. Even though he does not need it regularly now, on days of tests or upcoming stress, he always asks for Calmplex 2000 as do my other boys.

You can find out more on my webpage when you logon and check out the product catalogue. There are research briefs you can read.

Unfortunately these products are only available in the U.S. and Canada, but should be coming to Europe in the next couple of years.

I hope this helps."

Developmental Integration Technique

Nicole wrote to us about Developmental Integration Technique, a few details of these therapy follow from the Developmental Integration Technique Website......
"We bring our children into the world, we love them, send them to school and support them. We expect them to be able to manage. We hope they will do well.

Many of them could do much better if we removed the blocks which limit their abilities. The Developmental Integration Technique is a gentle, non-invasive way of improving their abilities and rewarding their efforts with success. The treatment offered is quite unique and consists of a reflex inhibition programme with the addition of sound therapy and specialised kinesiology. Treatment is individually tailored for each child."

Nicole has just updated us with the following...

"I am delighted to see that you have posted the info about DIT on your web site. I just wanted to let you know that Jack has almost finished his treatment and I am overjoyed at the change in him. The list of improvements is virtually endless and still ongoing. He is just not the hyperactive child he once was. He has calmed down, can sit still, doesn't endlessly fidget, can concentrate long enough to read a book from cover to cover in one sitting, doesn't constantly drive his younger brother to distraction - this was especially bad on car journey which used to be barely tolerable, this weekend we travelled from London to Brighton and back and Jack's behaviour in the back of the car was so different from even 6 month's ago we even found it hard to believe that so much progress could be made in so little time.

If there are people who contact you who would like to know more from a parent's point of view first hand I'd be glad to speak with them as I feel all children with ADHD should have the chance that Jack has had."
