Treating ADHD With Natural Options That Can Have Your Child Feeling & Behaving Better in No Time
Article by Laura Ramirez
Due to all the complications with prescription drugs, many parents are treating ADHD with natural options instead. In this article, you’ll find out more about those options as well as how you can use a simple 3-step program to get your child back on track in all important areas of life.
Since Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is believed to have many contributing causes, the best way to treat this kind of disorder is with a health conscious approach. Rather than numbing your child out with drugs, suppressing symptoms and depressing his energy with stimulants, focus on giving the brain the nutrients that it needs to heal itself and restore proper function. The best way to do this is with a good diet, specially formulated supplement and regular exercise program.
Since there are many ingredients in processed food that can worsen the symptoms of ADHD, one of the first ways of treating ADHD with natural options is to make sure your child eats healthy, organic food. By “organic,” I mean lean meat from grass-fed animals and fresh vegetables, fruit and whole grains grown without pesticides.
Although changing to a healthy diet may seem a bit overwhelming, you don’t have to do it all at once. Instead, make small substitutions over time, so that eventually, you have eliminated the sugary sodas and other processed, chemical-laden foods. Start with your child’s favorite snack food and try to find a healthy alternative. For instance if your child loves to snack on salty potato chips, try salted celery sticks instead. Make sure to call your child’s attention to the steady energy he feels after eating food that provides his body with nutrients.
Next, since it will take time to make this transition, get your child on a natural remedy that is designed specifically to treat the symptoms of ADHD. Look for one that has been FDA-approved and that contains the following ingredients: Verta Alb, Hyocyamus and Tuberculinum.
These all natural herbs have been proven effective in clinical studies to calm the nervous system, increase focus and the ability to stay on task and decrease impulsivity and inappropriate behaviors. Using a formulations with these herbs for treating ADHD with natural options is one of the most effective ways to start seeing changes in your child’s behavior. Best of all, these remedies have no side effects or complications.
Finally, add daily exercise to your child’s routine. Regular exercise reduces hyperactivity, relieves stress and calms an overactive mind. The endorphins released during vigorous exercise refresh the body and give the mind a much needed respite from the constant agitation that is the hallmark of a child who is always on the go. Of course, this means that you will also get a rest from it as well.
So there you have it: a simple, sound approach for treating ADHD with natural options that is easy to start and make part of your child’s daily routine. Good food, a supplement that is clinically proven to treat ADHD without side effects and regular exercise. Follow this program faithfully for at least six months and you will see positive changes in your child. Don’t wait. Your child deserves the benefits of following a healthy program.
