Herbal Remedy for ADD
Herbal Remedy for ADD………………
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) is a condition that affects many people’s ability to concentrate and think clearly. ADD treatment depends on the specific symptoms and the age of the sufferer.
Attention Deficit Disorder
ADD usually begins in childhood and may continue into adulthood causing problems that interfere with school or work and relationships. Children with ADD have difficulty concentrating, are often impulsive and inattentive and tend to engage in constant attention-seeking behaviors. They may be clumsy and disorganized and almost always have poor social skills.
Adults with ADD have difficulty planning events, organizing tasks or managing time. Because of their inability to focus, they are not able to notice the needs of others, causing relationships to be poorly developed. Reading and understanding new information can be challenging for both children and adults with ADD, and constant mental and physical activity can be exhausting for both as well.
It is now known that ADD has a biological basis. It is also thought that food allergies and intolerances, as well as sensitivity to environmental chemicals, molds, fungi, heavy metals and other pollutants may play a significant role in the development of ADD.
ADD treatment may include dietary changes to eliminate problem foods as well as behavior modification and sometimes prescription medications to control symptoms. Many people also find relief of symptoms with an herbal remedy for ADD.
One natural formula that may be an
effective ADD treatment
is Native Remedies' Focus ADHD The active ingredients in this product include l-carnitine, 5-HTP, phosphatidylserine, SAMe and vitamin B-6.
L-carnitine is a naturally occurring substance related to the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. It has been shown to help the brain by increasing cerebral blood flow, while 5-HTP appears to have a calming affect that can help improve attention and decrease restlessness.
Phosphatidylserine improves mental function in people with ADD and other disorders, and SAMe (S-adenosylmethionine) is another naturally occurring substance that has a positive correlation with brain function. Levels of SAMe tend to be lower in people with conditions like ADD.
Vitamin B-6 is included for its ability to facilitate the production and transport of the amino acids that may play a key role in controlling symptoms of ADD.
Formulas like Native's
though not intended for children under 12, may have a significant impact on older children and adults with symptoms of ADD.
