  • yes,There is no correlation between people suffering from ADHD and their accomplishments in life. Albert Einstein, Nelson Rockefeller, Galileo, and Thomas Edison are just some of the few famous people who suffer with ADHD.

    ADHD can be treated with new drug called Focalin XR. ADHD is more prevalent in boys than girls. There are three types of ADHD, namely predominantly inattentive type, predominantly hyperactive/ impulsive type and a combination of both.

    As the name implies, the predominantly inattentive type has symptoms of inattention i.e. absentmindedness, distractibility, a short attention span, and difficulty organizing things. The person suffering from predominantly hyperactive / impulsive ADHA has symptoms of hyperactivity and impulsivity i.e. unable to be seated in one place for a prolonged period, difficulty for waiting his/her turn. In the combined type, both inattention and hyperactivity/impulsivity is observed.

    After dinner walks, playing in the yard and other outside activities reduces ADHD symptoms. Your diet is also a factor in treating ADHD symptoms. The brand of cookie, potato chip, and ice cream you select in the grocery shop, and the vegetable or fruit you prefer will have a direct effect on your health, ability, and behavior. The products you buy in the grocery shop may contain some chemicals that activate irritability or hyperactivity.

    The holistic approach with naturopathic drugs proved to be more effective than the strong and addictive psychiatric drugs (Ritalin, Concerta, and Adderall) in the ADHD treatment. The herbal remedies are used to treat the symptoms gently and effectively.

    Common herbal remedies for the treatment of ADHD are Ginkgo biloba, Scuttellaria laterifolia (skull cap), Matricaria recutita(German chamomile), Centella asiatica( Gotu cola) Avina sativa( Green oats), Utrica urens ( Umbabazane in Africa) and Aspalathus linearis ( Rooibos). A natural remedy is less detrimental to your overall health than that of prescription drugs. Children who are using psychiatric drugs such as Ritalin, Concreta and Adderall may develop an addiction and other side effects to their health.

    People with ADHD may have other related conditions such as learning disorders, ophthalmic convergence insufficiency, conduct disorder, and antisocial personality disorder. ADHD patients are more likely to have a family member with ADHD or one of the related conditions, implying that ADHD may be genetic.

  • look up "healing children naturally" by michael savage. And good for you ^5. Don’t drug your kid!!!

  • i have no idea

    Yes…there was a study done in the UK about a class of 8-10 year old children. The kids were all hyper several were considered having ADHD. The researchers changed the diet of the children. They took out any foods that contained artificial colors, preservatives and additives (like boxed products: crackers, cereal, prepared foods) and had them eat whole foods (fruit, whole grain cereals, meats, fish, breads, vegetables). They also cut back on foods with refined sugars (candy, cereal) and used natural sugars.

    Within 2 weeks there was a vast improvement in the behavior of the children, within a month the children were cooperative and their grades improved.

    Several things I’ve read since I saw a documentary on the study I talked about have said that many children show symptoms of ADHD because they are allergic to many foods that are consumed by most children, i.e. gluten, preservatives, additives, food coloring.

    It would be worth your time to try to make some changes in the child’s diet. If that doesn’t help then see an allergy specialist. Changing a child’s diet is not an easy thing to do but neither is living with ADHD. Best of luck!

  • As little as people like to hear it: yes: meditation. Just simply learning to focus the mind will help the the overwhelming majority of cases.

    ADHD is an over-used diagnosis. Medical doctors and, even, psychiatrists tend to be too quick to diagnose it and treat it with medication because that is what they have been taught to do.

    More often than not people who have been diagnosed with ADHD have just never been taught how to properly focus their minds and their attention. Learning, through meditation, how to focus your mind on one thing at a time can work wonders.

    Even with bona fide cases of ADHD meditation can work wonders. After a life time of giving in to an unfocused mind medication can only treat the cause. It cannot help with the decades of learned behaviour. Those who suffer from ADHD need to not only treat the biological cause but the psychological and behavioural effects as well. Just because meds can give you the physical ability to focus doesn’t mean you have the slightest clue as to how. The entire process needs to be learned.

  • Yes, plenty. It includes a change in diet also. I have had awsome results following Dr. Christopher’s beliefs. Link below.

  • The best treatment for ADHD is a proper diet. There should be plenty of omega 3s found in wild salmon, flax seed oil and walnuts. Also mononunsaturated fatty acids found in avocados and olives. Avoid canola, soy, safflower and corn oils. Preferred oils would be extra virgin olive oil and unrefined sesame oil.

    Make sure the diet consists of healthy proteins, lots of dark leafy greens and at least one orange vegetable every day. Try to incorporate seaweed into the diet as well.

    Healthy carbs should be included. This would include whole grains like brown rice, whole quinoa, millet and buckwheat. Try to avoid puffed cereals and refined flour. Opt instead for sprouted breads or at least whole grain breads.

    Things to avoid altogether: sugar & non-nutritive sweetners, additives, preservatives & artificial colorants, stimulants (beverages with caffeine), fats and oils found in processed fast foods

    Things to minimize: pasteurized dairy products, wheat & corn, fruit juice & soy products

    Basically try to provide a wholesome balanced diet free of chemical additives and sugar.

    Yes I believe there is. A friend of mine, her son is 12, and diagnosed with ADHD at age 2. She started using natural solutions for him, and he is doing very well. I do know part of it is food changes, but the rest she gets from this wellness co. There is a person that guides her, so she knows what will work best for his particular situation. You might want to check it out, I will give you the site.
