New York, NY - Richard P Brown, MD, and Patricia Gerbarg, MD, Integrative Psychiatry experts, are authors of a new book with the latest complementary treatments for ADD/ADHD entitled Non-Drug Treatments for ADHD: New Options for Kids, Adults, & Clinicians (WW Norton, 2012, hardcover, 272 pages, ISBN 978-0-393-70622-2), now in release on Internet bookseller web sites, and in US and UK bookstores.  

“This book is a winner! (It is) a lively, well-researched, hugely needed book on treatments for ADHD that do not involve the use of medication. In no way anti-medication, it addresses the enormous need for reliable information as to what else people can try to help deal with ADHD” writes Edward Hallowell, MD, co-author of Driven to Distraction. It is also considered an excellent primer for the mental health community working with ADHD clients.

Written for healthcare professionals as well as those living with ADHD, Non-Drug Treatments for ADHD, includes the latest scientific research and medical developments to address the many challenges of ADHD. The authors suggest a variety of alternative approaches. Starting with methods for diagnosing ADHD, this book explores the root causes of ADHD symptoms, including genetic, biological and environmental. Each chapter focuses on specific treatments including nutrients, herbs, nootropics (brain boosters), mind-body practices, and brain stimulation. Case examples show ways to combine standard treatments with complementary approaches for better outcomes. Written to be reader friendly for those with ADHD, the text is lively, playful, and enriched with illustrations and fascinating examples of successful healing methods used by yoga therapists, herbalists, special education teachers, neurotherapists and other health professionals.
