Jane Corda BELLINGEN,
When my son was 4, I was told by his day care lady that he had symptoms of A.D.D., and that she was attending a seminar about A.D.D. in the following week, Would I like to come along and listen in.
I did and recognised all the same A.D.D. symptoms that my son had. I went and saw a specialist (who in fact was A.D.D. himself) - he put my son on dexamphetamine, 2 tabs three times a day.
The change in my little boy was instant. very quiet, He listened, he behaved. but...at night he had horrible nightmares, night terrors, the doctor said, they sometimes happen, but not to worry, they don't suffer any long term effects from these. So on and off these terrors happen over the next five years. Last year, I became a supervisor with Herbalife and went through all the testimonials hoping to find something for my son. He was 11 then and hated taking the tablets, he said they made him dopey and stupid and he was getting more and more night terrors. By this stage I had weaned him down to 2 tablets a day (the thought of all those tablets everyday, all those chemicals, was a constant source of debate between my husband and myself for many years).
So I decided to try my own little experiment. I gave him one dexamphetamine plus one Herbalifeline and one NRG in the morning and he took one Herbalifeline and one NRG to school and had them with his lunch time dex.
The Xmas holidays came and during this time he would only have his morning dex plus Herbalife 2 times a day. His night terrors stopped; by the time Xmas was over he had probably had one or two nights of waking up but no terrors.
If you have ever experienced them you will know how horrible they are. When my son went back to school, he forgot to go to the office at lunch time to have his dex, After a month he told me this and I saw his teacher to ask how his behaviour was. He was happy with his progress, but he would monitor him anyway. It is now the 2nd May 2004. My son has just been on more school holidays where he didn't take his morning dex either, but did take his Herbalife, So far so good,
He is 12 this year and dexamphetamine free. My doctor tried to increase his dose saying as they get older, they need more. I didn't want my son to be on these tablets all his life and what's more he hated it.
Now he is happy, Sometimes he can be a handful, but I figure, he's just a boy. If his school work is not suffering and he's happy and we are happy then what more can I ask for.
Thanks to Herbalife, everything is ok. All you can do is give it a go, but remember its all trial and error, depending on the drug and what dose you are on, will depend on how much Herbalife to use. You must do this slowly and cut down the A.D.D. medication only when you feel the person/child can cope without it. This worked for me.
If you have any queries talk to your doctor about it. Thanks again Herbalife
Hi, I have a 6 year old son who has ADHD and ODD (oppositional defiance disorder). He was taking Concerta and 4 125mg Depkote tablets each day. I have just started trying some of the products on him and I have successfully exchanged his 4 Depkote tablets with 1/2 a K8 tablet 3 times a day.
I also give him 1/2 a Sleep Now tablet at bed time. (He never slept more than a couple of hrs each night until now.
Thank you Herbalife.

My son Anthony was diagnosed as having ADHD when he was 5 years old. Over the years I had been to doctors, psychologists, homeopaths, and tried him on various diets, some of which gave some improvement. When the problems such as lack of concentration, hyperactive behaviour and ticks got worse, around the age of 11 years, I finally gave in to the doctors to give him medication, which I had tried to avoid doing for all those years, because of all the side affects that were known about some of these drugs.
The first drug was Ritalin, which seemed to calm him down and his concentration improved, but his ticks became so bad that I could barely stand looking at him without feeling distraught. His head and face twitched constantly, then down his neck, arms and body. The children at school teased him as children sometimes do, and that caused him more grief. I went back to the doctor who then gave him another medication called Dixarit, which was often used for people with high blood pressure, and was known to help some children with ADHD if taken in smaller doses. So I started my son on this drug, and seemed to have some affect and the ticks were a lot less
At the same time he had some tests done at school to see which secondary education school he would be best suited for, and it was said that he had to go to a high school for children with learning problems. I was told that he would not have a higher level of education and he would be able to learn perhaps how to work in a supermarket or shop.
Around this time I came in contact with Herbalife, mainly for myself to lose weight. I had heard from my Sponsor about children with ADHD who improved on Herbalife's NRG tablets. So I started my son on NRG twice a day, and Formula 1 and Formula 2 once a day. He was also still on the Dixarit tablets twice a day. After a few days I noticed improvement in his concentration and behaviour. But what was more astounding was that after his first year at high school, they said he could do a higher level of education in Sales and Retail, and a year later they put him up to a higher level to do the Business Administration course. In his final examinations he did not only pass, but his results were 8's and 9's and even a 7 in the Dutch language, with which he struggled since we came here from Australia 10 years ago.
Shortly after that the doctor took him off the medication, said it wasn't necessary anymore. Since then my son has worked in
I am grateful that I came in contact with Herbalife. As a distributor at the time, I was also able to help another mother who had two sons with ADHD and they also saw marvelous results with their children. Thank you Herbalife!!
A friend of mine has a 7 yr old daughter that was having sleeping problems. She had trouble getting to sleep each night, was always awake until after 11:00 p.m. and woke up several times during the night.
She saw an endocrinologist in
I gave her a bottle of Sleep Now. The first night, she took 1/2 tablet (that = 1/2 mg of melatonin) at 7:40 p.m She was sound asleep at 8:10 p.m. Her parents were astounded. The little girl woke twice during the night but was never fully awake and went right back to sleep. She now wakes happy and rested.This same little girl also has all the "criteria" of ADD/ ADHD. She started taking 1/2 NRG tablet in the morning before school and 1/2 tablet when she comes home from school. She can now focus and is able to get along with others and does not have sudden outbursts. Her mother forgot to give her the NRG yesterday morning and couldn't believe how "wild" the girl acted. It is so wonderful to be able to help others with our amazing, natural Herbalife Products.
I wanted to follow up on the progress of my friend Linda. I went to visit last night and the story just keeps getting more exciting! Below is a report on Tommy's recent progress. He has been on the Herbalife products just over (1) week now.
1. For the first time this school year Tommy got 100% correct answers on both his spelling and reading tests.
2. Tommy is completely off all (3) prescription medications.
3. Tommy's ticks are diminishing. (Tourette Syndrome)
4. Tommy now will play independently for hours or sit and actually watch a movie completely.
5. His attitude toward school has changed completely. He now has an interest and wants to do well
Tommy's Grandmother told me last night that she would pay any price, no matter what the cost for the results she now sees. I have received many letters of support regarding Tommy. I hope that you will e-mail this letter to everyone you can. I am listing the products used and the dosages below. I only hope that this will help other children and families that have similar problems.
1. Formula 1: (2) times a day
2. Formula 2: (1) tablet (2) times a day
3. Formula 3: (2) tablets (2) times a day
4. NRG Tablets: (2) tablets (2) times a day
5. Herbal Calmative: (1) shot in the morning and then as needed
7. Tang Kuei Plus: (2) tablets (2) times a day
8. Herbal Aloe Concentrate: (2) capfuls in each shake and whenever possible in any drinks.
This program was set for Tommy at (2) times a day so as not to interfere with school time. Keep in mind that Tommy is 11 years old and dosages need to be adjusted according to age.
Most recent update on this program is that they added Herbalifeline 1 cap / 1 time/ day and have now been able to decrease the NRG.
I am a 46 year old man and all my life I was called stupid or dumb, and was told that I was not ever going to catch on.
I was told I am too spacy or I do not pay attention, I lack concentration, and many other things.
I had to work harder than my peers to achieve my promotions and I found out when I was 42 that I had A.D.D. I had learned to cope no problem, then I was introduced to Herbalife and one day on the phone I started losing my concentration and I was getting agitated going into what I call my A.D.D stomp, when my sponsor Tara Ball who is a RN realized what was going on and told me to go take two NRG tablets and call her back in twenty minutes.
I did not understand what NRG had to do with my getting my customers set up but I agreed and I took them and in 15 min. my mind slowed down and in twenty minutes I was calm and could clearly concentrate on what had to be done.
In those twenty minutes my whole life changed!
I realised that now I had a way to deal with the way my brain was wired, and I knew from that day on I would never be called stupid again.
I take 2 NRG tablets when I have my morning shake along with two Herbalifeline and Ginkgo and
I take two NRG and one Mentabalance at lunch along with my other tablets.
And then I take two NRG and one Herbalifeline and one ginkgo at about 4 pm. This is my daily regime.
I love Herbalife and because of these products I am now able to concentrate and I do not fear the dreaded "stupid" or "you will never understand" words.
I will never be without them.
My grandson who is 10 years old was diagnosed ADD a few years ago and for two years was on Ritalin. Last year he was taken off Ritalin because he wasn't achieving what was expected and was then put onto Risperdal. While that produced better results his parents were not in favour of keeping him on medication forever and subsequently agreed to try what Herbalife had to offer.
