CBS medical correspondent Dr. Jennifer Ashton noted that some studies have shown alternative treatments such as chiropractic and dietary changes to be beneficial for children with ADHD.
The report stemmed from a recently released study in The American Journal of Psychiatry suggesting that children and teens who take stimulants such as Ritalin for ADHD have an increased risk for sudden cardiac death.
I have personally seen positive results in children with ADHD with chiropractic, supplementation and dietary changes.
