11:15 am
area. we're talking about arlington, alexandria and the washington area coming in at number 14 this was among 100 major cities in towns that were surveyed. what about the impact? what does it mean for everyone? lower obesity rates are linked to better social relationships. also found financial security is better and this is no surprise physical health improved. so researchers say local governments, they need to focus on ways to lower these numbers to improve their communities' well-being all around. after the break, the next republican to throw his name into the race for president.

11:28 am
dr. weiner what does behavioral therapy entail? how successful is it? >> essentially it's as the name implies. this is therapy aimed at addressing the core behavior problems associated with adhd, things like forgetfulness, inattention, disorganization. the therapy is aimed primarily at the parents, trying to give them the tools and the plans that they can implement at home to try to help their child be more effective in dealing with the core adhd symptoms. now, it is helpful, but i would say that it's more helpful around the edges. it's not going to be as effective as what you would see with medication per say. >> but as a psychiatrist who deals mostly with children, do you think people diagnosed with adhd should try this therapy before taking medication? >> the treatment recommendations are particularly for kids under the age of six this this is the primary form of treatment that should be tried first, if this is not effective enough then you turn to medication. now, for kids over the age of six, generally it was found to be most effective is a
11:29 am

. it's reported that children should undergo behavioral therapy before taking hd hd medicine. dr. weiner, what do you think is the most effective treatment for adhd. >> this is based on the landmark adhd study. it found medication alone is more effective than behavioral therapy alone. however having medication plus therapy will give you the full benefits. in particular it will be most helpful for those kids with adhd who have issues with oppositionalty. so if you have a child who you're trying to treat for academic purposes and they don't have behavioral issues medication alone is sufficient.
11:51 am
but if you have oppositionalty and behavioral issues you want to have this combination of therapy and medication. >> what are the non-medication ways of treating adhd? >> so you have behavioral therapy as we talked about but then you have exercise vigorous exercise for an hour has been shown to improve attention for two hours. omega-3 fatty acids are the only known natural supplement shown in double blind placebo controlled trials to be effective in helping with adhd. then diet. diets are the "mediterranean" style diet. rich in omega-3s, low in processed foods. these have been shown to be helpful in about 50% of cases. so it's worthwhile to consider these but often times people are eventually depending on the severity of the problem going to need to look at the possibility of adding medication. >> a lot of parents will want to talk to their doctors about this. thank you so much dr. weiner.
