4. What is a homeopathic product?

While it is not possible to go into the complexities of homeopathic medicine in full within of this FAQ, homeopathic medicine very briefly works by administering minute quantities of substances which are known to cause the symptoms concerned, thereby stimulating the body to heal itself. Basically, homeopathic medicines encourage the body's own defense mechanisms to correct the problem. A classic example is that of caffeine. Caffeine generally causes insomnia, but it is used homeopathically to treat insomnia. Minute amounts of caffeine extract, prepared in accordance with homeopathic pharmaceutical principles are administered to people suffering from insomnia in order to stimulate the body to heal itself against the symptoms of insomnia. A somewhat similar principle is used when children are vaccinated against chickenpox, for example. Homeopathic remedies must be used on a daily basis. After 6 months of regular use, we recommend that the remedy be stopped during a holiday to see whether symptoms return. If not, one can discontinue use.

8. How quickly does it take effect?

This depends to a large extent on the individual's physiological make-up. For MOST children, BrightSpark will work its way up to full effectiveness over a three to five week period. We have had customer who have seen the benefits within a few days, but for the most part, expect a three to five week period. For those with ADHD who wish to see quick results, combine BrightSpark with Focus ADHD Formula for the first 5 weeks while BrightSpark takes effect.

9. How long will I have to take it?

This depends on each person's physiological make up. Because it is homeopathic,it is possible that use of BrightSpark can permanently improve or eradicate some of the symptoms of ADD or ADHD, and we have seen that in some children. We recommend taking BrightSpark in six-month treatment plans, stopping it at the end of each six-month period for a week or two to see if the symptoms have lessened or disappeared. If they have not, then resume for another six months and so on. There is absolutely no problem in taking BrightSpark forever if needed. There are no side effects, it is not addictive and it is 100% safe.

11. My child has ADD - is BrightSpark the
right product?

13. Can I take it with Focus ADHD Formula?

The short answer is "Yes - for those with ADHD". BrightSpark is a very effective, 100% safe homeopathic treatment for ADHD. As a homeopathic medication, one would take it every day including on weekends. Some people immediately benefit from BrightSpark, while for some it can take up to three to five weeks for full effect. However, it is ultimately extremely effective and can be used on its own.

Since BrightSpark can take some time to build up in the body, to get some quicker relief from the symptoms, Focus ADHD Formula can be used along with BrightSpark. Use Focus for 4 - 5 weeks, then discontinue use if you so desire, and by then BrightSpark should be at full effect. For very bad cases of ADHD, you can safely use the two products together on an ongoing basis.

14. Can I combine BrightSpark with your other Homeopathic remedies?

Yes - being homeopathic, BrightSpark can be safely taken with any other medications, including our other homeopathic ones. This is often recommended, especially for children with anxiety issues.

15. Can I take it with prescription ADD/ADHD medications?

BrightSpark is perfectly safe to take with other ADD/ADHD medications, including Strattera, Concerta, Ritalin and Adderall. Of course, we strongly advocate trying to get kids off these drugs, since their extreme side effects are well-documented. However, if you feel comfortable continuing their use but are looking to augment and improve their results with Brightspark, this is safe to do.

16. Should I continue to take other ADD/ADHD medications?

You can safely continue to use those products. However, if you find BrightSpark is working, you should consider slowly weaning off those other products, since BrightSpark is much safer, has no side effects and is non-addictive. If you feel safer doing so, consult your doctor to help you with a program to wean off these products.

17. How do I wean my child off other ADHD/ADD medications?

As you know, Adderall, Ritalin and Concerta are amphetamine stimulants and if they have been used for some time, your child will probably experience withdrawal symptoms when he/she stops using it. These are usually fatigue and moodiness, often with frequent tears and low tolerance levels, which can last up to 2 or 3 weeks.

To wean off these, we suggest:

  1. Try to find the least stressful time possible to begin to reduce the dosage. A school vacation is often good - especially if some family members can also take time off to support him/her while they are coming off the drug.
  2. As our BrightSpark formula can be taken together with any of these drugs without any adverse effects, were recommend that you begin your child on BrightSpark a week or two before you decide to start cutting down on the drug. Incidentally, BrightSpark is also particularly effective with children who have difficulty with anger and violent impulses. Some people experience an almost immediate improvement with BrightSpark, while for others a 3 - 5week period is needed to see significant results. Begin taking the BrightSpark exactly as directed on the bottle.
  3. After a week or two of the BrightSpark, halve the dosage of the prescription drug for about a week and then give your child the reduced dosage every second day for a further week. While all may go smoothly, be prepared for some difficult times and try and ensure that there is as little stress on your child during this time as possible. At this point you can also begin giving your child a full dosage of Focus for ADHD, if you are combining our two remedies (often a good idea).
  4. If all goes well after this, you can completely cut out the prescription drug and continue with BrightSpark and Focus.

19. Can adults take BrightSpark?

While BrightSpark was specifically created for children under 12, it has been quite successfully used by teenagers and adults. Adults using BrightSpark should increase the dosage to 4 or 5 times daily. However, both teenagers and adults with ADD (not ADHD) should strongly consider using Focus ADDult instead. Focus ADDult was specifically formulated for teenagers and adults and is very effective in treating ADD. For those with ADHD, use Focus ADHD Formula.

23. Does BrightSpark help temper tantrums?

Temper tantrums in children with ADHD is often a bi-product of the frustration these children experience in feeling "different" or "out of control". Often, as BrightSpark takes effect, their frustration decreases and so do the temper outbursts.

24. Is BrightSpark safe for Children and from
what age?

BrightSpark can safely be given to children of all ages, from two years and up. Of course, one should be very careful in identifying a two year old child as ADHD or ADD. At that age, this is very difficult to establish and one should be wary about making such diagnoses. However, BrightSpark can safely be taken from ages two and up.

25. Will BrightSpark help with sleep?

While BrightSpark is not a sleep aid, hyperactivity often plays a role in causing irregular sleep patterns for people with ADHD. As BrightSpark takes effect and reduces hyperactivity, sleep patterns often improve.

26. Does BrightSpark interfere with prescription or
over-the-counter allergy medications?

No, BrightSpark will not interfere at all with allergy medications. In fact, it is noted that most kids with ADD or ADHD have a high degree of allergies. No one knows why, but there just is a high correlation. BrightSpark includes ingredients that help to reduce levels of allergies, so not only will it not detract from prescription or OTC allergy medications, it should help to reduce the child's tendency towards allergies overall.
