I have a son who is 10 y.o. and has ADHD. 3 years ago I moved all 3 children on organic diet and raw milk from the farm and 100% grass fed cows. I felt like my son had all sicknesses in the world. I was a home staying mom. It started with his asthma getting worse. He was about to go on every day steroid. First I changed everything to organic. I noticed that I felt better myself but his asthma didn't get better. next I added raw milk. The first time in his life I could hear his mucus melting in his chest, fpr the forst time he had productive cough. It took about 18 month for his asthma to completely go away. He has being asthma free for over 2 years now. His eczema disappeared as well and a bunch of other health issues. 6 month after switching to raw milk I decided to get rid of gluten. Almost right away he stopped complaining that his brain was bouncing(ADHD). His visions(moving objects) in the dark room disappeared as well. His ADHD was getting better though he still had trouble focusing at school. Then my awful divorce started with lots of yelling and undermining me by children's father who put himself on a large dose of testosterone for body building. Ex started to give my son bad foods behind my back. Then he took him to psychologist and through him on medication. Ex was trying to use this against me in court, that I am a bad mother who doesn't want to medicate her son. Now since I have the majority time share, he gave the medication to school. I do not want my son to take it, I would like to continue with a diet. I also researched how spine misalignment can cause ADHD. I got an appt with a chiropractor for an evaluation of his spine. My question is: Do I have a right as a mother who has a majority time share to go to school and to demand to take him off one of the two medications which causes side effects I do not like? Is it my decision or doctor's to medicate my son? Do both parents should agree of medicating a child? I just know in my heart that diet can help my son's ADHD about 50%. I am praying that chiropractor will convince my controlling ex about benefits of a diet. I have done so much research about diet in the past 4 yeas and observed great results in all of my 3 children, but this is first time i am posting my own story after reading thousands of others.
