I’m really sorry but this advice makes me hesitate to explore the rest of your website. Stating that homeopathy has its critics is like saying that the belief in a flat earth is not fully accepted. Homeopathy has been shown over and over again to be exactly equivalent to placebo, because it does not have any active ingredient. You have a responsibility to provide helpful and accurate information, as there is a real lack of resources for people with ADD or ADHD and their families. How can be confident in this website if there isn’t a basic respect for scientific accuracy. “And regardless of research, many with ADHD — especially those who wish to avoid or reduce their use of prescription medications — swear by homeopathic remedies for distractibility, impulsivity, and more symptoms.” Regardless of research????? Do you mean to say that this website values anecdotal evidence over actual research? If so, then you need to reevaluate your approach to providing advice couched in scientific language. Anecdotal evidence is only valuable as a starting point for more rigorous research. In the case of homeopathy, this has already been conducted ad infinitum, and where the studies are large enough and high quality enough to be trusted, no benefit to homeopathy has ever been demonstrated.
From its inception, however, homeopathy was criticized by mainstream science. Sir John Forbes , physician to Queen Victoria , said in 1843 that the extremely small doses of homeopathy were regularly derided as useless, "an outrage to human reason".  James Young Simpson said in 1853 of the highly diluted drugs: "No poison, however strong or powerful, the billionth or decillionth of which would in the least degree affect a man or harm a fly."  19th-century American physician and author Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. was also a vocal critic of homeopathy and published an essay in 1842 entitled Homœopathy and Its Kindred Delusions .  The members of the French Homeopathic Society observed in 1867 that some leading homeopathists of Europe not only were abandoning the practice of administering infinitesimal doses but were also no longer defending it.  The last school in the US exclusively teaching homeopathy closed in 1920.
