Treating ADHD the Natural Way
by David Chandler
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.

the few famous people who suffer
with ADHD.

prevalent in boys than girls. There are
