• ‘TURN THE PAGE’ Fri 11/8/13 ‘No More ADHD’

    Meet Dr Mary Ann Block, an Osteopathic physician who pursued her education at age 39 to save her daughter from drugs wrongly prescribed. Her goal as a physician is to look for and treat the underlying conditions causing the patient’s problem, rather than just covering up those symptoms with drugs.  Her quest led her to pen the book, ‘No More ADHD:Ten Steps to Help Your Child’s Attention and Behavior without Drugs‘.  Dr. Mary Ann Block is Medical Director of The Block Center, an international clinic for the treatment of chronic health problems in children and adults. She is an international expert on the treatment of ADHD without psychiatric drugs. Her approach is to look for and treat the underlying problem instead of covering the symptoms with drugs.  Dr. Block chairs The Health and Empowerment Committee for The National Foundation for Women Legislators, and has served as a peer reviewer for the Agency for Health-Care Policy and Research and the American Academy of Pediatrics for the diagnosis and treatment of ear problems.  Dr Block joined me on the show today and discussed preventive measures to avoid symptoms of labeled disorders.
