Jubilant Mom Letter
“Just writing to let you know about my son Jacob’s first 24 hours on the “Shake” using AIM’s supplements. Jacob is a bright, outgoing, loving, and above all, active 6 year old. After a frustrating kindergarten year, which included calls and notes from his teacher about his “daydreaming” and inability to complete his schoolwork, I had him tested. This past July, he was diagnosed with ADHD, Inattentive Type, as well as dyslexia.
Neither his pediatrician nor I wanted to put him on “medication” at this time so I sought other alternatives. After hearing a radio commercial, I attended the ADD seminar on Thursday in Covington. Friday, I bought the ingredients for the “shake” and started Jacob on it that afternoon.
On waking the next morning, he wanted another… then another… after which, he found the “CANDY” I had hidden, unsuccessfully. I have to admit that I was curious to see what would happen if he ate it. He had been calm, focused, and agreeable all morning. He ate one small candy bar and to put it politely, “the dragon” emerged! – all cranky, fire breathing 50 pounds of him!
Well, out came the blender, the Rice Dream, the green stuff (Barley Life) – extra this time, and all the other ingredients and in less then 10 minutes, Mr. Agreeable was back! I sat there amazed and watched as his facial expressions changed back t the calm child he had been all morning. He had two more shakes before he went to bed that night. It seems he’s craving the nutrients the shakes provide.
The battle is far from over but at least we’ve found a weapon to use. In order to avoid any “power” struggles I’ve let Jacob take part in the decision to eat a certain food or not as I slowly remove them from sight. I feel that when he’s out of the house at a friends or at school it’ll be up to him to make the right choices. He doesn’t always choose the right food but he’s learning – and I’m getting pretty quick at putting those “shakes” together.
P.S. Update: His grades improved with D’s to C’s and B’s to A’s and on the Honor Roll. Now he is able to ride a bike. He could not before because of coordination problems.”
