Paul had just sat for his ‘A’ levels when he was diagnosed with ADHD, and was immediately put on conventional medicine. But the 18-year-old suddenly became extremely anxious, felt continuously nauseous and grew emotionally inept.
“I could not sleep at all, and when I tried to socialise, I felt like a robot.

He went on to earn top marks for his bachelor’s degree thesis, eventually enrolling for a master’s degree.
