Natural Remedies For ADHD Children

Signs And Symptoms:

ADHD is short for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.  A child with ADHD is impulsive (often acting without thinking), hyperactive (fidgety, walks, runs, climbs, talks over others), and inattentive (daydreams, easily distracted and sidetracked).  An ADHD child that is predominantly inattentive with few other symptoms is often referred to as having ADD.  


It's believed that this condition affects 3-5% of children and is caused by a genetic defect, rather than poor discipline at home.  There really is no evidence either way with respect to the causes.  There is evidence that a high carbohydrate diet may be partially to blame.


There are many treatments for ADHD, which usually include various types of behavioral therapy and medications.  To give you an idea of the effectiveness of treatment, they're currently conducting studies to determine what the most effective treatment is: behavioral therapy, medication, both, or none.  The most common treatment is to put the child on stimulant drugs.  Here's a good source of information from the National Institutes of Mental Health NIMH.

Natural Remedies:

The most successful home remedies include 2 cups of brewed coffee (with caffeine) in the morning and a high protein, low carbohydrate diet.  While coffee is an inexpensive and safe alternative to the drugs normally prescribed, always check with the doctor before using any natural remedies. 

Total Healing:

Health conditions can be frustrating and painful...sometimes even fatal.  We both know there are no guaranteed cures or quick fixes, whether medicine, nutrition, herbs or anything else.  Many illnesses are "incurable" from the medical standpoint.  Complete healing is possible...including mind, body and spirit...from God.  If you want God's help with this or any problem, go to Help From God.
