“Attention-deficit drugs increase concentration in the short term, which is why they work so well for college students cramming for exams. But when given to children over long periods of time, they neither improve school achievement nor reduce behavior problems. The drugs can also have serious side effects... Many parents who take their children off the drugs find that behavior worsens, which most likely confirms their belief that the drugs work. But the behavior worsens because the children's bodies have become adapted [because the drugs are habit-forming] to the drug. Adults may have similar reactions if they suddenly cut back on coffee, or stop smoking.”
Baking soda will increase your blood pressure which is dangerous for your health. Don’t use it ! For your condition, turmeric powder or raw is best to CURE them. I HAD AND CURED THEM myself, as well as my wife, my wife’s nephew. Doses, 2 capsules, 3-4 times a day. ( Do not use it too much, some one over used it had some reaction. It disappear when turmeric usage stopped. ) When all of the over the counter medication including Zantac did no longer help, turmeric stopped my suffering in less than 2 DAYS! continue taking it for 2 weeks, the stopped until now that over 2-3 years, no problem re-occur ! It’s cheap and available at most drugs stores.
