Summary "Increasing numbers of parents grapple with children who are acting out without obvious reason. Revved up and irritable, many of these children are diagnosed with ADHD, bipolar illness, autism or other disorders but don't respond well to treatment. They are then medicated, often with poor results and unwanted side effects. Based on emerging scientific research and extensive clinical experience, integrative child psychiatrist Dr. Victoria Dunckley has pioneered a four-week program to treat the frequent underlying cause, Electronic Screen Syndrome (ESS). Dr. Dunckley has found that everyday use of interactive screen devices--such as computers, video games, smartphones, and tablets--can easy overstimulate a child's nervous system, triggering a variety of stubborn symptoms. In contrast, she's discovered that a strict, extended electronic fast single-handedly improves mood, focus, sleep, and behavior, regardless of the child's diagnosis. It also reduces the need for medication and renders other treatments more effective"--Back cover.
