Jess, a dedicated mother of three, graciously shares the story of her oldest son, Max, who is diagnosed with ADHD and ODD. Before finding Daily Essential Nutrients, Max struggled with the overwhelming and unmanageable symptoms that often accompany ADD/ODD. He was oppositionally defiant, moody, argumentative and had a hard time focusing and making friends. He became the victim of bullying at school because he acted up a lot and seemed different than the other kids. Jess says that their family life had become very contentious. She had even gone so far as to home-school Max to help him learn to focus and stay on task and to get away from the bullying he was experiencing.
Now Max has been using Daily Essential Nutrients for about a year and half, and life has improved dramatically for him and his family.
In this second installment of the Mental Health + Micronutrients Video Series, Jess shares her family's journey to finding relief for Max while supporting him through his struggles with behavior. After trying multiple therapies and spending thousands of dollars, Max's parents felt that they had finally reached the end of their rope. That was when Jess learned about Daily Essential Nutrients. She says she was willing to try "just about anything" by that point.
Max started taking DEN in the summer, three weeks before starting a new school. When he started school, Jess was pleasantly surprised to learn from his teacher that Max wasn't having the struggles with focusing or staying on task that he typically dealt with at the beginning of each school year.
As Max began taking Daily Essential Nutrients consistently, he started noticing a difference in his experience at school. He figured out that the micronutrients allowed him to be more in control of himself. This, in turn, meant fewer negative consequences, which further motivated him to take the micronutrients. In fact, Jess says that she can tell when Max misses a dose of the micronutrients. When he takes DEN, his mom says it significantly improves his ability to function in a calm, settled, focused manner.
Jess shares, "You love your child, you want the best for them, you want to help them. It's hard to watch them struggle...It's a huge strain on the marriage..the family...and life. We had tried everything [before trying DEN]...As a parent, the Daily Essential Nutrients have really changed my life."
