I started looking into probiotics when I was researching how to get my son off ADD medication naturally. My son was 9 years old, when he was diagnosed with ADD. His learning difficulties were impacting his self-confidence and self esteem at school because he felt like he was ‘dumb’. He was sad and angry and I didn’t know what to do to help him. I found it extremely challenging to put him on the medication Ritalin knowing that it would affect his physical health but with very little support from the school, and very little knowledge what to do otherwise, I felt like I had no other choice.
