I'm looking for advice about books, supplements or remedies for my daughter. She's 9.5, and I think she has some behaviors similar to ADD or ADHD. I'm not interested in getting her diagnosed or medicating her. But we are really struggling to keep her focused and on task, and it's been stressful for all of us. In reading through some past threads, I've seen Dr. Sears ADD book mentioned as well as one called Quirky Kids. Are their others that approach it from a natural point of view? 

I've also seen vitamins and supplements recommended: zinc, magnesium, B vitamins, and vitamin D and C, omegas and probiotics.

Natural or homeopathics remedies I've found are essential oils, specifically the doterra blends, for focus, calming and grounding. There are also some remedies made by a company called Native remedies. One is called Brightspark, and the other is called Focus Formula.

I'd be interested in hearing about these or any others that you may or may not have had success with. Thanks!

After doing a lot of reading and research, I think the first thing were going to try is vitamins. I read a post here where the Mom suggested a book, but also said she has ADD herself and hadn't read it yet. I have searched and searched for it, but can't find it again. If you know what I'm talking about, could you link it?

I am now trying to figure out the correct doses and which vitamins to buy. Should I buy them all separately? Start with a multi vitamin? I was thinking about trying Kids Calm Multi, has anyone used it? Either that, or Rainbow Light has a line of product for kids, so I thought we could do the multi, plus omegas and probiotics.
