When someone tells me their child is medicated and still having BIG emotions – especially as the meds wear off, the inability to stay on task and still aren’t symptom-free…
I’m actually happy to hear those stories. Because they knew what they knew. And now know what isn’t working.
If you’re overwhelmed, then you’ll want to know this so you can save yourself a lot of time, frustration, and headaches.
There are too many children suffering from ADHD out there who have a hard time achieving a life that doesn’t revolve around constant correction, monitoring and self-doubt.
Because of programs that skip food interventions, habit goals and cohesive plans to only focus on medications that in fact further complicates the situation.
And when you’re constantly bombarded with these challenges in your life, it’s hard to get your head out of the weeds and realize you’re making the same mistake that’s not helping you or your child.
I get it because I’ve been there too and have helped many others like you. But first, you gotta accept that what you’re doing is not working.
So instead of continuing with behaviour flares and having to live with massive highs and lows, here’s what you can do to finally get your child on the path to being symptom-free.
#1 — focus on adding protein to each breakfast, snack and dinner. This will help to regulate blood sugar levels and stabilize your child’s moods.
#2 — focus on water as the main beverage. This will keep your child hydrated so things stay moving and reduce stress inside the body and eliminate unnecessary sugar.
#3 — focus on box breathing. This brings focus into the body and naturally calms or reframes the current mindset.
Even if you can consistently do one of these, you’ll finally start seeing things shift. And your child will experience fewer ADHD symptoms and this means you won’t be revolving your whole life around how you’re going to get through your day.
