there is a tendency to prescribe
stimulant medications, such as Ritalin,

While prescription drugs may sometimes
be necessary for treatment of extreme
cases, recently there have been
reports of an epidemic of hasty misdiagnoses
and over prescription. In fact,
the rate of methylphenidate prescriptions
for children in the U.S. has jumped

can be used to detect possible
causes and contributing factors
linked to hyperactive behavior,
problems with focus, depression
and migraines in children and adults

drug-free alternative methods of
treatment. Once tested, Dr Rispoli
can custom taylor a program to

bring focus and mental clarity
back into focus, all with specific
natural amino acids. The
amino acids can be used in conjunction
with medicine, making the medicine
more effective, or in many cases
in place of medicine.
