We are facing an epidemic of ADHD and learning disabilities, affecting more families and stretching our school systems farther each year.
Today, one in ten children are diagnosed with ADHD and one in six with a learning disability, and the total cost for parents and schools for each child diagnosed with ADHD is a whopping $14,500 per year!
There is increased recognition of these conditions, but even though science has a new understanding of what if happening in the brain of someone with ADHD or a learning disability, mainstream treatment has not changed much over the last 40 years.
This week Dr. Jim Otis will join Dr. Ritamarie to talk about drug-free solutions for ADHD and learning disabilities.
In this show you will learn:
- What is happening in your or your child’s brain
- The limitations of mainstream treatment for ADHD and learning disabilities
- Drug-free solutions that can help you or your child focus when you need to, think clearly, learn easily, and get more done

Gluten sensitivity is the root of so many dis-eases and it’s found everywhere. Last week on the show, we talked about the emotions surrounding giving up gluten. It means finding new comfort foods, figuring out new ways to deal with daily stressors rather than eating. But the results are SO worth it!
Debbie Sipowicz joins Dr. Ritamarie once again to discuss practical changes you can make when going gluten-free. You don’t have to break the bank to give up gluten.
What we will cover:
1) How to change to a gluten-free diet
2) How to stick with it
3) Tips for making it easier
