Natural Alternatives for ADHD


The following is excerpted from the website for SerenAid at

"Agape Nutrition would like to introduce SerenAid. A high quality peptidase enzyme which works on specific gluten and casein molecules*. These molecules are also known as caseomorphins and gluteomorphins, because of their opiate-like effects on the brain. Elimination of the opiate-like molecules from the bloodstream of those with ADHD, ADD, and Autism may help decrease the severity of these disorders."

Sue writes......

"There is a new site on the internet that sells SerenAid, called

My site offers free shipping and handling, which can provide a signicant savings to customers over competitors. You may verify with Klaire labs that I am an approved vendor of the product.

10% of the profits will go to a scholarship to send autistic children to a special summer camp. I would really appreciate it if you would consider including my site in your links for SerenAid!

My son uses it and I can personally attest to its effectiveness. A psychologist who recently began working with my son said that he is the highest functioning child in the autistic spectrum that she has ever seen. I am also selling a booklet at this site that I wrote to help the parents of young children who have just been diagnosed to help them quickly put together a comprehensive and effective intervention program."

Skullcap - Skutellaria lateriflora

The following is excerpted from the Health Search newspaper published by Wilson Publications, Owensboro, KY 42303

According to The Eclectic Materia Medica , Pharmacology and Therapeutics (1985) by Harvey Wickes Felter, M.D., specific indications for skullcap are nervousness, attending or following an illness, or from mental or physical exhaustion or teething; nervousness with muscular excitation; tremors, hysteria, with inability to control muscular action; functional heart disorders of a purely nervous type, with intermittent pulse.

Skullcap is calmative to the nervous and muscular systems and offers some tonic properties. By controlling nervous irritability and muscular incoordination, it gives rest and permits sleep. When insomnia is due to worry or nervous irritability or even exhaustion, Dr. Felter says relief may be expected.

According to the Wild Rose College of Natural Healing, skullcap's major influence is on the central and sympathetic nervous systems. Traditionally, skullcap has been used for many purposes including neuralgia, insomnia, excitability, restlessness, rickets, headaches, hiccoughs, incessant coughing, hypertension and nervous disorders. It has antispasmodic, nervine, antihistamine and anti-inflammatory properties. Skullcap has no toxicity.
