1) The role of diet in the treatment of ADHD

Reserch in February of this year looked at previous studies of three dietary approaches for ADHD: Restricted elimination diets, artificial food color elimination, and supplementation with free fatty acids.

Value was seen for all three approaches. But the studies were not large, and since they don’t know who will benefit most from which approach, the authors say “more studies are needed.” Sound familiar?

It will be many years, if ever, when large enough studies are done to satisfy researchers and they are able to pinpoint which child will respond best to which therapy. Our suggestion is, if your child has ADHD, look into these dietary approaches online or with a practitioner and give them a try to see if they help.
