Will Bio-Strath be able to help my child suffering with ADHD/ADD?
If your child is already on any medication for ADHD we recommend adding Bio-Strath to their treatment. Bio-Strath is a very good compliment to the medication as it will assist with stimulating their appetite (as appetite normally disappears with the medication), increase their vitality and just overall support their health. If your child is not on any medication and you want to explore a natural treatment route, we recommend that you start off with Bio-Strath and give it according to the dosage instructions.
Use Bio-Strath for two to three months and see if you notice any differences. If so, you can continue, but if it is not working, explore other alternative products or contact a health care practitioner. Bio-Strath has been proven beneficial for children with ADD/ADHD and we have many anecdotal testimonials of successful treatment of ADHD with Bio-Strath, but it is important to remember that not all products work the same for all people.
