How effective is online speech therapy for treating autism?

Is there an effective cure for unsteadiness and weakness with age?

Is there an effective cure for unsteadiness and weakness with age?

Exercise: Muscle cells are replaced by fat as we age & nerve pathways that aren't being stimulated die out. Make sure that the weakness is not being caused by other conditions, however. It's too easy to say, "you're just getting old." conditions that affect muscles, nerves, and energy can be obstacles. See "strong women stay young" (book) and "23 and1/2 hours" (http://www.Youtube.Com/watch?V=auains6higo). ...Read more

Are there any herbs that have stimulant effects, for treating a child with attention deficit disorder?

Are there any herbs that have stimulant effects, for treating a child with attention deficit disorder?

Probably, but why?: Most of the herbal remedies touted for treating adhd have some type of stimulant such as caffeine as the major active ingredient.
