• ALL our compounds are formulated to last you 3 months.
  • Each compound is formulated with its own strength, appropriate for weight ranges.
  • Always take ZAN with a meal, preferably breakfast.
  • Never combine ZAN with any other pharmaceutical stimulant, such as Ritalin.
  • ZAN is very subtle, and works by building up in the body. Many factors effect how quickly it is absorbed in your system; diet, metabolism, digestive system, and so on.
  • ZAN is NOT a quick fix.
  • We do not offer samples.
  • For children who have difficulty swallowing capsules:
    • You can dilute the fine powder that is inside the capsules, into one inch of any juice.
    • Have you child practice swallowing blank gelatin capsules. You can usually find them at any pharmacy, and they come in various sizes.
  • ZAN (formulas 2, 3, & 4) are manufactured by Nittany Pharmaceuticals, in Reedsville, PA. The laboratory is FDA approved. During our research for the best manufacturer, we were thrilled that Nittany took extra measures in collecting and processing the herbs. They met all the rigorous testing procedures that were needed to ensure the quality control that we were after. ZAN (formulas 1 & 5) are custom compounded by Pathway Apothecary Pharmacy, in Bethesda, MD. Originally, I custom compounded all my son’s formula through Pathway. Again they have all the required FDA certification that is needed to ensure the safety and quality of the formula. They are a small outfit, and could not keep up with the demands that we needed from a larger outfit like Nittany.
  • ZAN is sold only directly from our offices. We have plans to get it into health food stores. We can ship anywhere in the world, and already have many international clients.
  • Some clients have asked if ZAN is something they have to take forever. Originally, I had hoped that the formula would sort off ‘jump start’ the body’s natural process of increasing the blood flow to the brain. Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be the case, people with ADD/ADHD may always need the assistance of a stimulant to achieve the desired results. I have recommended to some of my clients that they should, periodically, stop ZAN and monitor how they feel. I think that especially with teen-agers, we need to assess how their hormonal changes affect their bodies, and allow for those natural changes.
  • Some have asked about side effects. We have not had any adverse side effects reported. By side effects, I am referring to those typically associated with Ritalin, and such stimulants.
  • ZAN’s success: So far, we have had great success.
  • We have clients who are on medication for depression and/or anxiety. The general rule for combining ZAN with any other medication, is to ask your doctor if the medicine that you are taking can be mixed with a stimulant like Ritalin. If you are given the okay, then you can mix it with ZAN. I tell people that they should try the drug free route; so if they can try something like St. John’s Wort for anxiety and/or episodic depression, I prefer that they try to cleanse their bodies from all forms of medication. In other words; try the herbal route. Sometimes, certain medications can overpower ZAN’s positive effects.
  • We recommend that ZAN be taken with a good vegan multivitamin, such as the brand name Pioneer. It comes in chewable form for children, and regular tablets for adults. It has no yeast, corn, wheat, dairy, eggs, or other animal products, no added salt, starch, hypo or hyper glycemic sweeteners. It can be purchased from Whole Foods at: http://www.wholefoods.com
  • We recommend that you eliminate sugar, artificial coloring, additives, and packaged and processed foods, which contain hydrogenated fats. Use the process of elimination and start with the removal of all dairy products; there are substantial reports that indicate that dairy slows down the neurotransmitters which effects messaging to and from the brain. Give a minimum of 4 weeks for a dairy free trial.
  • We recommend that you only use organic fruits and vegetables. We highly recommend juicing a mixture of fresh organic seasonal fruits and vegetables. Berries are highly favored and add a delicious taste; especially blueberries. Occasionally I add a slither of fresh ginger and/or garlic; use very little as it overpowers the taste. If you prefer a thicker texture, you can blend a banana and add it to the juice.
  • Almost all our clients have reported that they have NOT lost their energy. Which is the wonderful aspect of ADD. We highly recommend exercising. We have found that Martial Arts and Yoga are especially helpful to children and teenagers. Those two forms of exercise are especially helpful in teaching them to better control their body, and assists with focus.
  • ZAN can be ordered online through our secured site. Or by calling our toll free number at 888 926 6288. You can download an order form the site and fax it to us.
  • We do not offer samples, or refunds.

Recommendations:

  • Most children’s organizational problems are likely to limit their ability to complete tasks, turn in assignments, follow directions, etc. They may need help to develop organizational skills at home and at school. It is very important to establish a predictable routine for time spent in the classroom and after school and weekends. At home, parents are encouraged to develop charts that outline step by step how to approach tasks. They are also encouraged to help involve their children in developing an organizational system for papers, notebooks, homework assignments, etc. It can be helpful to develop a checklist that they can use to explore their backpacks and makes sure that they have the things needed for the following day. It is recommended that homework assignments to be turned in be kept in a separate folder, preferably an expandable folder. A separate notebook should be used that can be used to hold any new worksheets or assignments that they receive during the course of the day. An assignment notebook should be separate; where assignments are written down with the help from the teacher. The teacher should then initial that the assignments are correctly written with complete instructions and the correct due date. Parents are encouraged to check this notebook daily and to initial when all papers are complete in the folder to be returned to school the next day.
  • Structure and consistency. They will likely do best in a classroom that is well organized, structured, and controlled by the teacher. This means that the class would be on a daily routine to which the teacher generally adheres to on a regular basis. The order and amount of time devoted to various topics would be clearly displayed. The environment would be as quite and free from distractions as possible. Additional modifications in the environment that are often useful include preferential seating as near the teacher as possible and grouping well-focused children.
  • Guidelines for home & school
    • Give the child more immediate feedback and consequences. Children with ADD/ADHD are known to be more under the control of the moment than unaffected children. To have the desired impact upon behavior, positive feedback for positive behavior and negative consequences for problem behaviors should occur swiftly (versus being delayed to the end of the day, etc.).
    • Give the child more frequent feedback. For example, do not expect the child to work alone for an hour on multiple tasks. Breakdown and organize the time period and provide feedback at short intervals. It may help to use a timer.
    • Use incentives before punishment. When you want to change an undesirable behavior, first decide what positive behavior you want to replace it. Start watching for that positive behavior and reinforce it when it occurs. The child with ADD/ADHD is likely to misbehave often; a cycle of punishment alone is not very affective for changing behavior and does not teach alternative, desirable behavior.
    • Strive for consistency. Be consistent over time. Do not give up too soon when starting a behavior management program. Respond in the same manner across situations (e.g., the same responses at home and in public).
  • At home, make sure that both parents are using the same methods. With regard to facilitating focused attention, the following suggestions are offered:
    • Ongoing use of a highly multisensory approach. For example, creating songs or using existing songs, particularly highly repetitive and rhyming versions would be helpful as would using manipulatives.
    • Make information to be learned highly meaningful and salient. It will be helpful to creatively tie areas of non-interest to areas of interest.
    • It may be helpful to set up a self-monitoring system. For example, he/she might be trained to recognize and record episodes of on-task behavior. Usually, an auditory or visual stimulus, such as a hand signal from the teacher is used to signal the child to observe his/her behavior at the moment. The child then records whether he was on task on a simple grid taped to the desk. Self-monitoring is often especially helpful if tied to a reinforcement system.
  • How to Reach and Teach ADD/ADHD Children by Sandra F. Rief and ADHD in The Schools (DuPaul and Stoner, 1994) are recommended resources for practical ideas.
