Hi, I am a 37 year experienced pediatric occupational therapist. I talked with a mom of one of my clients, whose son had ADD. She is absolutely amazed that he is doing so well with school and homework and is now so motivated. she told me today that he is now immediately responsive to his name being called, since taking Synaptol. She only ordered the one month supply bottle but told me she will be ordering the 3 month supply with her next order. She is amazed with the change in her son. Good luck with your son! Ma
~~I see you posted this back in 2012. I was wondering if you had any follow up information about Synaptol with that child you talked about. If it was still working, if they went off and they continued to do well etc. It's been my experience with homeopathic remedies that they can work. I currently use Doterra's "In Tune" which addresses each ADHD symptom individually, but combines the extracted oils for each symptom into one bottle. I see a difference in both my children. I'm also going through a cognitive program with them called the "Gift of learning" or the "Gift of dyslexia" by Ron Davis. I have one son who is often above grade level when it comes to academics, but he can't seem to sit still in class. And another son who exhibits the same un-restfulness but has a more difficult time actually learning he reverses letters and sounds a lot (mixing C's and S sounds etc.) Also if he gets mixed up on something he completely shuts down and I have to calm him down and start whatever process we are doing over with him. Because of personal reasons and not to mention in my state they don't test for Dyslexia until 3rd grade I had him unofficially tested. The test proved that he is a picture thinker, and that though he is young he is exhibiting strong signs of dyslexia. So I found "The Gift of Learning" by Ron Davis. We are in the middle of going through the steps. But with each step I see a difference in both my children. In reading the information I realized that my other son who was able to grasp and initiate his own methods and tricks to learn the things he needs to get through school has a lot of the same symptoms, he was just able to help him self a little more than my youngest. Just understanding how they process the information we give them makes an enormous difference. This program helps train their brain through a meditation of sorts. My youngest cannot hold still to save his life. But when we do the meditation exercises he can. So I'm thinking that like the books say the more we do it the longer he will be able to control his body. His "Dyslexia" (which is not just the reversal of letters it means a heck of a lot more than that so if your child is ADD or ADHD you should read on it.) makes it seam as though the pages are moving. I noticed when he would "read" he would avoid looking at the page or words he was supposed to be reading. This is because in his brain the words may seem to be moving or the words may look like wavy lines, until he centers him self. when that happens he is responsive and focused. Certain words or letters can be triggers and set this off, so one minute they are reading great and the next they are bundle of wiggles. This "Gift of learning" process is going very slow for us, as that I don't have funds to have a trained counselor do it. Which can be done but it is roughly $1,000 for a six year old. which I know sounds like so little in the long run. but it really is a lot for me right now. The price goes up with age as that the older they get the harder it is to retrain their brains. That being said the home process is doable and Ron Davis's book and website gives you the tools to do it. So I am slowly going through this with both of my children. The improvement has been small but noticeable, I'm hoping by next year they will be even more practiced and better with everything. That being said, I'm always looking for something that can help both of my children have a better school experience than I did myself. (turns out I would be considered ADD, which in doing research it is a very hereditary thing especially if anyone in your family has an alcohol dependency problem.) I didn't like that they called it a "cure" for Synaptol. There can't be a cure for this, because it is an imbalance of hormones of sorts. I was looking for foods that promote focus and came across Synaptol so I started checking it out. So I am really curious to know if it is useful, but what the aftermath is, if you take it and go off it, or are not consistent at taking it.
