Attention Deficit Disorder
BrightSpark - Proven Herbal Remedy, Treatment and Information.
Herbs for ADD Child (Attention Deficit Disorder.)
What is ADD?
ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) is a group of symptoms that affects concentration and a person's ability to focus.
It can also cause mood swings, impulsiveness, behavioral and other social problems. Children with these problems have difficulty in completing their school work and are often in trouble with parents and teachers.
What are the causes of ADD?
There are many different causes and explanations for the symptoms of ADD including diet, allergies, food intolerances, anxiety, low muscle tone, anxiety, depression, family problems, poor discipline and even some forms of illness.
Unfortunately some doctors and therapists do not do a thorough assessment and simply prescribe potentially harmful psychiatric drugs without considering what the causes the problem might be.
Our Clinical Psychologist, Michele Carelse, has worked for many years with children and adults who struggle with the symptoms of ADD, as well as with children's parents and teachers.
As a result, she has discovered that a combination of natural remedies, healthy diet, and a structured and caring approach will usually result in a dramatic improvement.
In consultation with experts in the field of natural and homeopathic medicine, she developed BrightSpark - a 100% homeopathic formula to treat the symptoms of child ADD without the potentially dangerous side effects associated with many psychiatric drugs.
BrightSpark is a safe and effective remedy, especially and tested over the years in the treatment of hundreds of children in her practice. Feedback from parents and teachers has been consistently good.
Many adults and children with ADD are highly creative and intelligent individuals with a wonderful sense of humor!
BrightSpark will keep you 'Bright and Sparky', while at the same time helping you to focus and pay attention, without the risk of addiction, drowsiness and other side effects.
"I'd like to say that my son just turned 7 years old yesterday and has been taking BrightSpark for two years and with a combination of Karate class, he was the brightest student on his classroom this year. His school applied the "NOVA" test, which is a test to measure the students abilities and intelligence level required by the federal Government on Public Schools and his score in reading, writing and spelling came out above the normal of all first grade students in the USA public schools."- Vilma R., NJ
"Our granddaughter is in the first grade. Her teacher said she was positive she had ADD along with 2-3 other teachers in the school. Her teacher said she might have to be held back. We started using Focus and BrightSpark, needless to say she ended up on the Honor Roll the last two grading periods. Along with good study habits, and the above mentioned products, things turn out very well! Thanks so much for being there."- Larry & Brenda, IN
My child's pediatrician recommended this as an alternative. I am so glad he did. My 5 year old is a changed person. He is happier with himself and even looking forward to kindergarten...... 2 months ago he was afraid he would not fit in because as he put it..."I just can't calm down". Really he is a changed kid. If you are having doubts about ordering, rest assured I was too. It is the best thing I could have done for my son. - Mrs Morgan, CT, USA
"Two weeks ago, on April 14, I started giving my 10-year old daughter BrightSpark. For several years we had been struggling with learning issues, mostly her inability to focus at school and grasp the concepts being taught to her. Her grades were anywhere from "B" to "F" nothing consistent. Her biggest problem was with reading. Well, on Monday, April 25, she brought home her first "A" in reading. I could not tell you how proud of her I was! She was so excited and proceeded to show me some of her other papers that she had gotten "A's" and "B's" on, where she would have previously gotten "D's" and "F's". Her teachers had suggested that I medicate her because she was not focusing at school and they suspected ADD. She is not a hyper child and very well behaved at school, her main problem was her inattention. I believe that BrightSpark is the contributing factor in her overall improvement in school. We will continue to use your product, along with additional work with her at home, to maintain the great results we are seeing. I cannot thank you and your company enough for offering a wonderful product that has done wonders for my child. Again, thank you!"- Kathrine, IN
"I have really noticed a difference in my child. He is 8 years old and had a major problem with attention in the classroom. He has been on BrightSpark for 3 months and the teachers are reporting much better behavior. His attention span has increased greatly. We don't receive daily calls that he is misbehaving in class anymore."- Danette A., LA
I started my 7 year-old on both Focus for ADD and BrightSpark approximately 3 weeks ago. Last year while on meds. I received calls from school on the 2nd-day. He has received all A's in behavior each day this year, and is a much happier/cheerful child. No more sleeping pills at night. Concentrates better at school at on homework. Does not get upset as easily. Since he's been off regular meds (tried Concerta, Strattera, Adderall, etc - NOTHING WORKED) - he weighed 48 lbs - since not taking those any more he has gained 20-lbs in 2 months!! I too was skeptical about the Focus/BrightSpark - but I am now hooked and recommending this to everyone!!! God Bless You - Roni, MD, USA
"My son is in the second grade. He has had many difficulties in school like sitting still, concentrating, and controlling his impulsive behavior. I started him on Focus and then started giving it to him with BrightSpark. I showed the bottles to my son's doctor, who specializes in sleep disorders and ADHD, and she felt the products were safe to give to my child. BrightSpark and Focus have made a tremendous difference. He was always getting sent out in the hall for distracting other children and getting answers wrong on assignments because he could not pay attention. The teacher noticed a difference in his behavior, and she didn't even know he was taking anything. For the past month now, he has not taken BrightSpark because I ran out. I figured the school year was almost over anyway, so I did not reorder. That was a big mistake because now he is starting to act the way he did before. I reordered 3 bottles today, so I don't have to worry about running out for a while. I highly recommend both of these products. They definitely work."- Sheri, IL
"My 6 year old son had been on Dexedrine and then Concerta for about 8 months, ever since the end of the first quarter of his kindergarten year. He was diagnosed with ADHD, and I knew he was overly hyper. We had to change his dosage several times and then eventually his medication. I was extremely concerned about his lack of appetite and weight loss. He was getting so skinny and you could see his ribs from the front and back, weighing only 46 lbs and being 4 feet and 2 inches tall, I thought that was not much. I was also concerned about his sleeplessness and he had major mood swings and often seemed depressed. This was constantly on my mind and I knew I had to find an alternative solution other than stimulant prescription medications. I searched the web and found the Native Remedies site. I read the testimonials and I cried because they seemed so genuine. I was still skeptical though, but I knew I had to give it a try. I ordered the BrightSpark and the Focus ADHD for my son and got it in 2 days! I immediately took him off of his prescription medication the next day I started the BrightSpark and the Focus. The first day was pretty rough but I didnít let it change my mind. Itís been 1 week and 3 days today. I must say that this is really working! Every day is better. My son is eating! And already gaining back his weight!! He is sleeping so well and he is so happy! I finally have my sonís personality back. I missed him so much!! He is not moody anymore and I havenít seen him depressed at all in about a week. I canít thank you enough for having these alternative treatments available. The testimonials are what encouraged me and convinced me to try this! I had to write in and share mine. Maybe it will encourage someone else to try this instead of the prescriptions that have so many harmful side effects. THANK YOU Native Remedies!!!"- Angela, VA
"Last year my daughter was in kindergarten and the teacher said that she was bright but at times seemed lost when her peers were busy doing their work. It seemed that it was hard for her to focus and pay attention to the teacher. This year the first grade teacher said the same thing and decided to have a meeting to help her. My husband and I thought that she might have mild ADD but didn't want to have her formally tested . So,we started using BrightSpark. The teacher had no idea that we were using it and after a couple of weeks on the pills we noticed that she went from an s to a s+ to an Excellent in her school work in just 3 weeks. The teacher said that she didn't know what we did but, our daughter is like a different child. She finishes all her work and continues to amaze her with her reading and writing. Thank you so much for your product. Our child now has self-esteem and is reaching her full potential!!!"- Kay J., GA
Safe for children!
"Children have problems too! Many medicines for children contain additives, artificial color and preservatives. Some are addictive and others may cause side effects which end up being worse than the condition that they are supposed to treat. Even some of the more natural, herbal medicines should not be given to children under the age of 12, unless supervised by a health care practitioner! Parents are understandably concerned and may feel confused about what they can and can not give their children. As a Psychologist and as a parent, I have seen a need for safe, effective and healthy natural remedies especially formulated for children's health. Together with Native Remedies, I have spent a lot of time in researching and formulating a range of natural remedies especially for young children. All remedies are herbal or homeopathic and carefully chosen for maximum effect and maximum safety, to safely heal and solve your child's problem - naturally. While herbal remedies help to heal and promote health, homeopathic remedies work by strengthening the child's own body to heal itself. The remedies are non-addictive and presented in child-safe doses. No artificial colors or preservatives are used and manufacturing is in accordance with the highest pharmaceutical standards."
- Michele Carelse, Clinical Psychologist
