An increasing problem at school realms is the one of kids who display symptoms of attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Due to their condition, they mature slower than their classmates in aspects such as fine and gross motor faculty, oral and writing abilities and concentration, among others. This problem is treated by the neurologists through the administration of dangerous drugs to kids.
The workshop “Whole health values” aimed at the parents of kids diagnosed with ADHD was designed to show them a different way of facing the problem.
The methodology applied was research-participative action. The participants were: a psychologist, the kid’s parents and teachers and a diet expert trained in Feingold diet who manages food intolerance in children. The parents had to keep a daily record of the events and results from the applied strategy.
The results are evidence that Feingold diet combined with the use of ingredients known as therapeutic by traditional Mexican cuisine, are a viable and effective alternative to the administration of dangerous drugs to kids.
