ADD & ADHD in Children and Adults
Natural and Alternative medicine options for managing ADD and ADHD learning and attention disorders.
By Diana M Drake - November 3, 2020
For adults or children who have been diagnosed or suspect you are dealing with ADD (Attnetion Deficit Disorder), ADHD (Attention-Defecit Hyperactive Disorder) or unexplained hyperactivity. Alternative and natural solutions are available at DMD Natural Medicine in Lone Tree Colorado or virtually from anywhere in the U.S.
These conditions are characterized by:
- Innapropriate attention
- Haphazard and poorly organized activity
In true ADD, this is often a weakness of the sympathetic nervous system and a corresponding over activity of the parasympathetic nervous system. A simple pupil evaluation can help to determine weather the individual is suffering from an excess of sympathetic OR parasympathetic nervous system activity. Once this is determined and the root cause is known, there are many herbal and homeopathic formulas to address this condition in a natural manner by healing the nervous system. Additional things that need to be assessed in each case are:
- Adrenal function
- Heavy metal toxicity in the body
- Gut health / potential for leaky gut
- Neurotransmittter functionality
These factors are all looked at during the Initial Discovery Appointment either in person or via phone/virtual. All cases are considered on an individual basis and protocols are highly customized. Support for dietary changes are incredibly important and thorough information is provided to the client, including shopping lists with recipes and meal plans.
