No: there is no herbal receive for ADD. the. Eat treatment for ADD is to set up routines and schedules around your child's life to help him/her organize. Then you need to have a sport to help him as an outlet, like karate, swimming, etc. supplements like fish oil or omega 3 i, vitamin D is a great idea. Stimulants might help depending on the severity.

Unclear support: No one likes the idea of taking medication without a true need. Treatment for ADD needs to be tailored to the patients needs and goals of therapy. Pick an MD who is experienced in this field. I found this article to be very informative on the current scope of treatment options for ADD. http://umm.edu/health/medical/altmed/condition/attention-deficit-hyperactivity-disorder
