What is ADHD?
Imagine living in a fast-moving kaleidoscope, where sounds, images, and thoughts are constantly shifting. Feeling easily bored, yet helpless to keep your mind on tasks you need to complete.
Distracted by unimportant sights and sounds, your mind drives you from one thought or activity to the next. Perhaps you are so wrapped up in a collage of thoughts and images that you don't notice when someone speaks to you.
For many people, this is what it's like to have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, or ADHD. They may be unable to sit still, plan ahead, finish tasks, or be fully aware of what's going on around them.
To their family, classmates or coworkers, they seem to exist in a whirlwind of disorganized or frenzied activity. Unexpectedly--on some days and in some situations--they seem fine, often leading others to think the person with ADHD can actually control these behaviors.
As a result, the disorder can affect the person's relationships with others in addition to disrupting their daily life, consuming energy, and diminishing self-esteem.
ADHD, once called hyper kinesis or minimal brain dysfunction, is one of the most common mental disorders among children. It affects 3 to 5 percent of all children, perhaps as many as 2 million American children.
Two to three times more boys than girls are affected. On the average, at least one child in every classroom in the United States needs help for the disorder. ADHD often continues into adolescence and adulthood, and can cause a lifetime of frustrated dreams and emotional pain.
In order to better understand how to deal with your or your child's ADHD, we have compiled a number of resources for your convenience. These include articles, web site links, FAQ's and online counseling sessions with our clinical psychologist, Michele Carelse (an expert in dealing with ADHD) as well as downloadable eBooklets on ADHD.
The natural approach
Rather than prescribing strong and sometimes addictive psychiatric drugs, (Ritalin, Concerta, Adderall) naturopathic approaches to the treatment of ADHD and ADD take a more holistic look at the individual and take into account diet, lifestyle, personality type, surroundings and emotional factors.
Natural remedies are used to gently and effectively treat the symptoms, while at the same time helping the person to heal and to reach a state of balance and health.
The natural approach is less harmful and more thorough and has a greater chance of curing the problem altogether, instead of keeping the individual on psychiatric drugs for many years.
This is very important, especially in the case of children, because of the frequent side effects of prescription drugs and the risk of addiction.
Focus has been happily used to help control, calm and soothe thousands of ADHD sufferers. Here is what some of them have to say:
"Hi guys, today is probably one of the happiest days of my life. My 8 year old son is on Focus and BrightSpark. Doctors have said he has ADD, frankly I always suspected Aspergers. Anyway he has taken the above 2 for the past 5 days. His teacher left a message on my job and home phone until he finally got me on my cell phone during his lunch break, I was so scared that my child was ill or fell or something else negative. Needless to say he was calling to tell my he was "blown away in the difference" with my child. He was "attentive, involved, sharing, and focused" during class. He then asked my what was going on? I then mentioned your company and the items my son was taking. When I came home, I played the teachers message over and over again. I was so happy I actually started to cry. I have to admit I was not a whole believer in non conventional medicine, but that has certainly changed. I will very happily recommend Native Remedies to everyone. Thank you and God Bless You." - Suzan C., NY
"I have tried everything for my son, but nothing calmed him or helped him with focus. My son has been on prescription drugs since 5 years old. He is now 14 years old. I always worried about side effects from the scripts but nothing helped him. I am totally convinced this works for him. WOW! I noticed a difference in one dose. He has gone two days without his prescription drug for ADHD. He is calmer and sleeps better. This has no side effects. I have just placed another order for more of your great product. I thank you and hope that others will give your products a try. Your customer service is great."- Jo, IN
"I must admit I was a helpless skeptic when it came to the effectiveness of natural remedies vs the use of prescription drugs. Does it really work? That's the bottom line. However within three days I noticed an amazing sense of peacefulness and comfort I have longed for, for over three years! I no longer feel impulsiveness and anxiety, it's been replaced with rest! And no pun intended here but there is a reason why they call it FOCUS! Sincerely, Skeptic turned believer!" - Randy, FL, U.S.A.
"My 11 year old daughter had been on Concerta for 4 years. I had been researching herbal remedies for years but was skeptical about their effectiveness. Recently, our insurance changed and the cost of her medication went up $35 a month, so again, I started looking into the herbal remedies and came upon the Native Remedies website. We decided that we would try her on the Focus ADHD Remedy. I sent her teacher an email advising her of what we were going to try and gave her the website so she would be able to read up on everything and could be a bit informed about what exactly it was that my daughter would be taking. I can say that I am TOTALLY amazed and her teacher is as well!! She can tell the difference in her concentration level and attention span also!! IS THAT NOT THE GREATEST!? Even if for some crazy reason, insurance would cover the cost of her meds again - it wouldn't matter one bit. I'd pay for the Focus over the meds ANY DAY!!! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!!!"- Suzanne, IN
"I ordered your product for my 25 year old son with tourette's syndrome and add. he agreed to try the drops as directed... anything to slow down the tics and improve his focus and attention that didn't involve drugs that make him tired and depressed! After a few weeks on the product, he now attests to feeling more focused and tics have slowed. Rosemary, KY, USA
"I highly recommend your Focus product to every mother with a child on prescription meds for ADHD. After feeling as if I had exhausted all options by trying numerous 'natural' approaches to address my 6 year old son's impulsivity, restlessness, difficulty attending, and the accompanying intense emotions, I succumbed to a physician prescribing Adderall. This choice went against my instincts, but I didn't know what else to do. As his Mother, I found the effects of that medication frightening to observe. Two weeks of taking the Adderall resulted in a rapid weight loss, lack of sleep and neurological ticks. Of course we discontinued the Adderall. Knowing there had to be another way, I continued my research and found the Native Remedies site. FOCUS HAD IMPROVED HIS LIFE! Results were observable within a couple of days. We have been using Focus for 13 months. I feel it is a God send. He finally has some peace and calmness from within that is evident in his eyes and face. First grade was successful and he is loving second grade even more. He is still 'all boy', but the transformation is what every mother would desire. Thank you for a wonderful product."- Debra, AZ
"I have a 10 year old son Lewis who has had ADHD since the age of 6. He was prescribed Ritalin by the consultant. I thought it would be better for him if I get him of the Ritalin as it had a lot of side effects, ie, insomnia, nightmares, loss of appetite "highs", lows of Ritalin wearing off. I was a bit skeptical about trying natural products, but after looking through the internet I came across FOCUS, living in the UK natural remedies for ADHD are not greatly advertised, so I thought I would give it a try. Lewis has been on the drops for about 2 weeks now and his dosage for ritalin has been halved. He was also on sleeping tablets as well. I have noticed a considerable change in his eating habits, he is of the sleeping tablets, and is a lot calmer and is able to concentrate a lot more at school. I would recommend this product to anyone who is looking to take their child off a prescribed drug given for ADHD. I have no hesitation in continuing ordering Focus and completely taking Lewis off the Ritalin altogether. Thank You" - Tanya, UK
"We are so very pleased with both Focus and BrightSpark. My grandson was having major problems as he entered the second grade, he was getting bad notes on his conduct and his inattention. We took him to the doctor and a medication was prescribed for ADHD. He had side effects and said his chest hurt, so we immediately took him off. I found Native Remedies on the internet and ordered the products, he has been helped tremendously. He has been on this all this school year and doing much better. We are so thankful for this product" - Kaye, AL, USA

Children up to the age of 15: Take one drop per age year of the child or adolescent in a little water or juice every morning and evening after meals.
Adults: Take 20 drops in a little water every morning and evening after meals.
How long until I see results?
While an immediate calming effect is usually noted, it takes a little longer for improvements in concentration, distractibility and memory to be noted.
Best results are achieved when Focus is used consistently and the recommendations regarding diet and consistent discipline are followed.
How long will a bottle last?
One bottle of Focus at full adult dosage (20 drops twice daily) will last 25-30 days.
For children under the age of 15 one bottle will last longer as less drops are taken, a bottle of Focus for a 10 year old child for example would last around 50 days.
A 90-120 day supply of 3 bottles is offered at a discount (see the Buy 2 Get 1 FREE special below).
