Adderall & Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

But what is the real problem here? It’s very clear to me that the medical community is steering parents into drug based solutions without any discussion of more natural approaches.

Nothing seems to work faster in stopping the progression of many cases of Alzheimer’s like coconut oil and MCT oil. The healing action is in the body’s production of ketones, which is induced by the mitochondrial action when the medium chain triglycerides in coconut oil (and palm oil) pass through the intestinal wall to the liver. These ketones then pass into the blood and brain and nourish brain cells (neurons) which, in cases of certain neurological disorders, no longer process glucose due to a brain insulin malfunction.
