Attention Deficit Disorder Cures

By Dr. Emily Kensington

Many ADHD sufferers search in vain for Attention Deficit Disorder cures because they fail to understand that ADHD is a chronic neurochemical disorder that often lasts well into adulthood.

However, research has proven that there are many ways to successfully manage and control ADHD symptoms.

What those with ADHD (and parents of children with ADHD) really need is to control the debilitating symptoms that inhibit daily functioning; to reduce hyperactivity, to improve focus and concentration, to reduce impulsive behavior, improve mood, and increase the ability to stay on task.

The methods listed here improve executive functioning and can help children, teens, and adults with ADHD lead happy, healthy, productive lives.

Attention Deficit Disorder Cures: Natural Remedies

ADD natural remedies such as BrightSparkFocus Formula, Synaptol, Listol, Attend, and Focus ADDult are made from plants, roots, and herbs that have been used in traditional and Chinese medicine for thousands of years.

These ingredients, such as tuberculinum and chamomile, are known to balance and calm mood and mental states, boost focus, and improve overall brain health.

The good news is that they do not cause adverse side effects and are not addictive, unlike stimulant medications such as Ritalin.The are quickly gaining popularity among natural ADHD cures.

This is welcome news for those who dislike the side effects of stimulant-based medications and for those parents who do not wish to over-medicate their children.

For those without health insurance, they are far more affordable compared to costly prescription medications.

Attention Deficit Disorder Cures: Self-Help Guides

There are two notable at-home behavioral programs that are effective cures for ADHD. One is for ADHD children and their parents, the other is for adults who suffer from ADHD.

For children, the ADHD Breakthrough: Overcoming ADHD Program teaches parents all about Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and how to manage the challenging behaviors that commonly result from the condition.

It is written for parents because they are most important caregiver with respect to treatment, and require the most support.

Written for adults, the How To Conquer ADHD program is a self-help guide written by an adult with ADHD, who documents all the methods she used to control and manage the disorder.

It's so effective that not only did she graduate with a high GPA from a top school and start a successful business, she did it all without the use of medications!

Attention Deficit Disorder Cures: ADHD Medications

Large pharmaceutical ADHD medications are the most common ADHD cure. They are generally made from stimulants (amphetamines) and work by interacting with the parts of the brain responsible for executive functioning - the pre-frontal cortex.

They interact with the neurotransmitters responsible for attention, impulsive behavior, and hyperactivity.

These medications include Ritalin, Focalin, Daytrana, Concerta, Dexedrine, Adderall, Strattera, and Vyvanse.

Nutritional Management

In The ADHD Diet and The Best ADHD Foods, I point out the research evidence that supports the nutritional management of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

Children who suffer from ADHD typically have nutritional deficiencies of essential vitamins and minerals such as Iron and Omega-3 essential oils. Therefore, a diet rich in the foods that provide this nutrition can help reduce and relieve ADHD symptoms.

In addition, it is important to note unhealthy dietary factors that should be eliminated. For example, FDA research indicates that artificial colors and preservatives tend to increase hyperactivity in children.

NOTE: this is not necessarily a cause of ADHD, but a factor that likely contributes to, or exacerbates, the disorder. As a result, eliminating these from the diet can reduce ADHD symptoms, and play an important part in an overall healthy lifestyle.
