Crunchtime Coping

With final exams around the corner, many students are starting to feel the pressures mounting-whether self-induced, from parents, teachers, or others. Unfortunately, many are turning to dangerous ADD/ADHD prescription stimulants to get through stressful study times... disregarding the side effects and putting their health at risk.

Learn the startling stats and how natural remedies can provide support instead

We also have an informative tips section on how to safely and naturally overcome test anxiety-a common but influential factor for why students feel pressured to use stimulants.

Have your child study THESE strategies for support before AND during the exam

In addition, cold and flu season is officially underway, but it's not too late to support immunity and boost resistance against germs and viruses! However, if you've already begun starting to feel the symptoms of a bug, stop and read this first! Many OTC cold and flu medications can be dangerous when combined... particularly those for ADD/ADHD.

Find out how to protect against cold and flu and relieve symptoms naturally

Along with students abusing ADD/ADHD prescription stimulants for studying purposes, both kids and adults have been found to be misusing these same drugs for weight loss purposes. However, similarly to the situation for studying, a holistic approach to health cannot be ignored... and taking these drugs for weight loss even in the short-term can hinder long-term success.

The Scary Side of Studying...

Help Stop the Dangers of Exams Stress

Recent studies from the University of Michigan Health System have shown that up to 35 percent of college students and up to 10 percent of high school students abuse prescription stimulant drugs- especially during final exams - to accelerate alertness during studying. Misusing such drugs can cause serious health consequences, including hypertension, depression and stroke.

Abusing ADD/ADHD Drugs for Weight Loss?

How to Slim Down Safely

Although the Food and Drug Administration has not approved ADD/ADHD drugs for weight loss, it's legal and common for doctors to prescribe medications "off label." In addition, about a quarter of primary and secondary school students have been asked by their peers for their medication-which means many are cutting out the doctor's referral altogether.

"I'm not sure how to help my son. He's very conscientious and worries excessively before taking each test, no matter how much I try and reassure him to just study hard, relax, and do his best when the time comes. I'm considering getting him the A+ Test Calmer"

- Dave


Hi Dave,

We have had many great responses from customers who have tried this remedy. A healthy brain and nervous system depends on a variety of factors, including both physical and emotional well-being. There are several tips to overcome test anxiety in students.

One very important aspect of physical health is the regular and efficient supply of blood to the brain through a healthy circulation system. Blood brings oxygen and nutrients to the brain, without which brain cells will 'starve' or become less efficient. This makes it impossible to concentrate, recall information, and manage exam stress effectively.

"I have 2 boys, one 14 and the other 15. Both were on medication for [learning and concentration] from 1st to 8th grade. They are now home schooled and have been off meds for 1 1/2 yrs. You seem to have a variety of remedies, so I am not sure which of these remedies we should try-- individual remedy or combo? I'm also looking at weight reduction remedies for them. They have put on about 20 to 40 pounds since stopping meds. Please advise."

- Bev


Hi Bev,

For your sons' learning and concentration issues, we recommend our BrightSpark and Focus Formula. It often takes a combination of treatment methods to find a complete solution for learning and concentration challenges... and not just finding a "quick fix", masking symptoms and disregarding the root of the problem.

BrightSpark, a 100% homeopathic remedy, works to temporarily relieve hyperactivity, distractibility and impulsiveness in children that may interfere with the learning process. Focus Formula works to support health-promoting properties on the brain and nervous system, thus helping concentration while maintaining normal energy levels. Together, these remedies provide a highly effective solution for managing learning and concentration difficulties.
