Options For Effective Holistic ADHD Solutions

According to a report in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Mental Health, children in America have available to them holistic ADHD solutions that are more commonly used with European children. Since ADHD also affects adults, it’s possible that the same situation exists for them.

Studies are showing that symptoms of ADD/ADHD are holding some people back from achieving their potential. With children, the effects of ADHD can negatively affect their learning abilities which can of course carry on into adulthood and have an impact on what opportunities will open up for them.

ADHD is not an indicator of intellectual potential. Actually, it’s commonly known that people with ADHD have very high creative potential available to them, it’s just a matter of addressing the issue of focus. Recognizing and addressing the difficulties with focus and concentration is the first step in overcoming them.

In the USA, the majority of children and adults with ADHD are treated with the stimulant drug, methylphenidate (Ritalin). Some estimates are that there has been a 300% increase in use of Ritalin by children and adults with ADHD in the last several decades…

Since there are no concrete tests for diagnosing ADHD, there is some concern that it may in fact be overdiagnosed. Although many people do OK with the popular stimulant drugs, there often are side effects and risk of addiction and possible withdrawal symptoms are other relevant issues.

If you’re concerned about the risks that come with conventional ADHD prescription medication, or just prefer to go the natural route, there are natural ADHD solutions that can safely and economically address symptoms, plus they’re readily available without the need for a prescription.

Herbal and homeopathic remedies are an example of ADHD solutions that are more commonly used in Europe than in America. These remedies naturally help support focus, concentration and attentiveness without side effects.

Known for their supportive function, these remedies have been shown in clinical studies to help in maintaining brain, nervous system and circulatory health, as well as mood and overall well-being. It can also be helpful to explore changes in diet, sleep, exercise, and daily routine.

Other holistic ADHD solutions that natural health care providers are finding to be helpful and add to the effectiveness of herbal and homeopathic remedies, are lifestyle and behavioral modification neuro feedback and relaxation therapies such as guided imagery and meditation techniques.
