Alternative Aids To Combat ADHD

adhd boyWe are reminded here of the reasons why alternative therapies for a number of health issues including ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) have been gaining in popularity.

The fact is that even conventional therapies for ADHD are rather hit and miss since health care professionals will themselves admit that the right dosage strength is often a trial and error process.

Research has been able to demonstrate that multiple therapies employed to check ADHD may be more effective than using one or the other.

For instance homeopathic medication for ADHD has often been seen to be a welcome and effective adjunct or even alternative to conventional therapy. This, in particular is true when prescription medications such as Ritalin and Vyvanse have been seen not to work very well.

Not just homeopathy, but other healthful practices such as these below could also help in calming a person down, reducing stress and helping them slow down and attain tranquility:

  • Nutritional therapy that uses high levels of protein and whole grains to prevent spiking of blood sugar levels can help.
  • Yoga, meditation and controlled breathing techniques may consciously calm a person and make them more tranquil.
  • Chiropractic care, acupressure and acupuncture are also seen as being helpful.
