Yeah, it made me realize how absolutely clueless you are, and there is no point in continuing with someone without any education on the topic. It is not about striking a nerve, it is seeing how pointless talking to you any further is. I think you like the idea of nature and food as medicine, but you don't really know what the LIFESTYLE consists of. Instead, you tell people medicine is bad and you will NEVER use it.....when you have no business even talking about it. Why? Because you have no education or experience to speak of on the matter.

LMAO...Kia, honey, do you NOT get that you're the one inciting argument here?

1) PUBLIC FORUM. You can't dictate who can/cannot or will/will not respond to posts
2) OPINION FORUM. No one is correct, and no one is bullying you when they disagree with you. ITS A DISAGREEMENT.

I'm as "together" as I need to be my dear Ms. Turner. I'm thinking that perhaps, I'm a lot more "together" than you may be, as indicated by your (sometimes) nonsensical responses! I am not sure why you decided to start attacking me for asking a simple question. Which, I might add, you didn't answer, but evaded! Nice High School tactic there...am I interacting with someone who might be more appropriate as a companion for my 17 year old?

And who are YOU to judge that I'm a 'miserable' person? ROFLMAO. I'm really enjoying watching this trend downward as you desperately reduce yourself to further insults in an attempt to prove your 'maturity' and 'knowledge'.

Get a grip, my dear...You really need one!

Are you serious???? If you understood ANYTHING about natural healing, then you should understand that chiropractors are a huge factor in that lifestyle!!!! Also, to make such a blanket statement about chiropractors not being respected by ALL medical doctors is more of the old school mind. The whole reason I brought it up? To tell you I have a lot of experience in alternative medicine and grew up with that exposure but if you don't even know that chiropractors are amongst that group??? Really??

Kia, what's with calling everyone else idiots, and stupid, and troll?

Get over yourself, sweetie, or you're going to have some hard knocks. FYI, LM is no troll...She's a moderator.

You are calling others out for doing exactly what you are: Offering an opinion. You're also contradicting yourself wildly within each post. Doesn't matter to me, I'm getting a great laugh out of the deal, but to the rest of the world, you're presenting a 'spoilt kid' image... ;-)

LOL Iove when newbies trying to sling insults. Nope. Not 40+ but nice try though. Nope not ganging up, but you would see it that way. Wanna know the real issue? That people disagree with you and you don't like it.

Oh Really??? BAHAHAHAHAHAA....once again you are making assumptions you cannot back up. I have been a vegetarian for 20 years, and my grandfather was a chiropractor for 35 years with a ton of training in natural healing etc. The point? If you eat ANY food that you do not grow and cook for yourself, that means you are consuming the very poison that you are lobbying against.

Yup you are right we are vegetarian and we do grow a lot of our fruits and vegetables! Before I go to just any doctor I contact one of my best friends who is a naturopathic doctor at Johns Hopkins. The majority of my friends live a natural life style similar to that of the people in the east. I am not expecting you to know anything about what I am saying because we were all brought up differently! Fortunately my family believes in natural healing by following a proper diet with more fruits and veggies than anything!! You can put all the poison you want in your body that is up to you!!! Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food!!! Simple enough for me!

Just picked apart what you said because it was blatantly wrong. Shawnn was kindly pointing out that I was not a troll, and someone who has been part of this community for a very long time. She was pointing out that you could not be MORE wrong about me. That is all.

And opinions are like assholes, everyones got one. You feel like you can offer yours? We can offer ours. We just happen not to agree with you. Clearly you cannot handle a debate, and scream bully at anyone that disagrees with you. Have fun with that.

Shawnn lets be clear and let me get you together real quick! I responded like everyone else however you 2 bullies have picked a part everything I have said! And if you are GOD himself! I stand behind all that I said! I don't care who she is I am Kia Turner!!!! Meaning I am just as important as any moderator and so are my opinions. I am glad you are getting a good laugh I didn't know someone with DRY HUMOR could do that!!!! I swear you people think you know everything and you don't!

Yeah you are right your kid doesn't probably have adhd, but to say it does not exist just because your kid doesn't have it? Really? And don't worry, I would never confuse you for a doctor cause obviously you have no training or experience in the medical field what so ever.

Just because YOUR son doesn't have adhd, does NOT mean others do not. And also simply because it was not labeled until the 1900's also does not mean it did not exist. The public has become more aware of it with population growth, and studies in yes the medical world has revealed it.

So, unless you live on a farm, grow your own food, kill your own meat, your kid is being exposed to foods daily that can exasperate the condition. Artificial colors and preservatives can enhance it. But I am sure your kid NEVER eats anything of the sort. *eye roll* because if you are so against medicine, you MUST be against all prepackaged food. Hey, they contain as much nasty side affects as the drugs you are lobbying against.

Actually I have enough sense to know that ADHD is a made up disease to make money off of the general public by prescribing medication. ADHD was not around until the late 1900's my mothers generation new nothing about such a thing! People need to use common sense! Again you want to stand by someone medicating their child for not sitting still or what ever which is quite normal for a child. Please tell me have you ever considered the side effects? The doctor is not always right! I am so happy that my family chooses to deal with things the natural way. Also please don't tell me what and what not to say. You are right I have no experience with it because my son does not have ADHD he is just a normal hyper 3 year old that throws tantrums from time to time. That's hat kids do and I just deal with it and discipline him the best the best way I can! No pills needed!!! Actually I have laid a teacher out for suggesting that my child needs medication! when I started questioning her all she could do is shut up!

Desiree, my comment earlier was in your defense btw. Don't adjust the meds on your own. Go to the doctor and discuss your concerns with him. After all HE/SHE is the one with the medical training and experience with these drugs....and knows your kid. Not Kia Turner.

Actually, the OP said she was Christain and trying to pray for it, so you just called her an idiot. Nice.

And you don't want to medicate your kids, fine by me. But don't DARE tell another mother that her kid will just grow out of something like adhd. Obviously you have no experience with it.

First of all, you have chosen to alter a medication WITHOUT authorization from the physician? NOT OK

If you do NOT agree with a medication prescribed by your physician, YOU ASK right then. If, after you get home and do some research, you have questions or concerns, YOU ASK before making your own arbitrary decisions to alter dosages.

My advice? GO BACK to your physician, admit that you've altered the dosage of the prescribed medication, explain your concerns, and ask if they will continue to allow you to be treated with them, and if so, to prescribe a reduced dosage.

First of all are you a doctor? and if you are that does not always make you correct!!! Common sense goes a long way! Now common sense should tell you that a pill can not cure everything! Also I thought this site was to answer questions that other parents ask! I am no expert and neither are you! All I can say is my child will never ever take medicine! My family does not believe in a pill curing or altering ones personality!!!! I am against pills and to be honest these doctors are pushing them because they get kick backs. Are you familiar with the side effects of such drugs or are you just online running your mouth? I believe in natural alternatives they have worked for my grandparents and parents and it is also working for me!!!! Also I never said being a Christian could help anything, I also never stated that I was a Christian! However prayer does work and only an idiot would think differently! Stop trying to be so smart and right. You or I don't know everything. We are all stating our opinions so calm down! Also answer her darn question and stop trying to cause an argument over nothing! Some people have nothing more to do than troll!!!!!

How can you "honestly think" anything about a child you don't know? A child that you have not diagnosed? Are you a doctor? His teachers? His parent? No, you are a random person online telling this women her son will "grow out of it". How absurd.

However, like I wrote on your duplicate posts, not giving the prescribed amount may not do anything for your child. In turn, you will be giving him drugs for nothing. Online research does not make you well educated on the issue. Hell sometimes it isn't even the correct information. You could actually be making things worse by not giving the correct dose, so either don't give it at all, or call your doctor for a consult and discuss your concerns.

Btw, being christian and praying away adhd won't do a thing. Addressing the issue head on will though.

Desiree I so feel your pain! Is changing his school an option? Also I was a disruptive child some times in class however I grew out of it? Do you think that he may be actin gout because they are singling him out and labeling him as a problem child. I know this is very frustrating and overwhelming too. Have you looked into any different schools also have you or your husband tried sitting in or observing him while he is in school. I honestly think he will grow out of it however I understand your concern about him not progressing to the next grade. All I can say is hang in there and don't give up! It is all going to work itself out!

It's not so much the hyper active as it is he's disrupting the class at school and may not progress to second grade, it's more to keep him focused! I'm not pushing drugs on my child but his dad, uncle and aunt were all ADHD and never on meds and wished they would've been to help them in school, they could've done a lot better if they were focused instead of sitting on tables, using pencils as drums when class is started and the list goes on! I'm tired of teachers picking him out as the disruptive one in the class and being in cracker conferences more than I'm at work! We are a Christian family and I've prayed and prayed we discipline him but nothing seems to be helping.

I am just curious as to why they prescribed that? If they are saying your child is to hyper please pay them no mind! My grandmother raised 7 children and it was not easy but she made it with out any drugs. Children do not need drugs to alter there behavior what they need is to be left alone and be able to be a child!!!! Medicine is a huge industry before you agree to putting him on meds do your research because the side effects are not the best. Furthermore doctors are pushing drugs because they get kick backs!!! Please don't let these people drug up your child he or she will grow out of being hyper or whatever! Let him/her enjoy their childhood the natural way. SAY NO TO DRUGS PERIOD!!!!
