Martha Wertz regulates her kids’ diets, simplifies their environments and uses essential oils to help them calm down and focus. She says many parents are too quick to medicate their children.

Sara Wertz, 12, says she believes she’s an “indigo.” We asked if she’s ever considered that it’s not true.

Christopher Wertz, 10, has been diagnosed with ADHD. He talks about his hyperactivity and what it means to be an “indigo.”

Marchelle Wertz, 22, says she’s “indigo” because she has a strong intuition and desire to change the world.

Doreen Virtue, Ph.D. is the author of several books about indigo children. Virtue says “indigos” are here to save the world.

Elizabeth Roberts, M.D., is a child psychiatrist. She says parents may use the “indigo” label because they don’t want to admit their child has a disorder or behavior problem.

  1. Elizabeth Roberts; your just jelous cause YOUR kids arn’t Indigos…

  2. In my 18 years in the school system as a special educator, I never met an autistic child or ADHD child who fit the “characteristics” of a crystal/indigo. This week, I did. The differences are subtle to a casual observer and actually frightening at first. Now I am searching for answers (how I got here) to support her behind the scenes. The school would think I was nuts!
