Alternative ADHD Treatment Secrets

Aug 17, 2007
There are many herbal and natural remedies out that may be helpful. Good herbs for promoting calm are Mellissa, Passiflora, Chamomile, Skullcap, Albizza bark, which all help for depression. Herbs like the ones mentioned are very safe. They can be bought at a local health food store and experimented with as teas. For real help, it is highly recommended to seek out a competant herbalist to prescribe a formula that is designed for your child, individually.

I have found TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine)herbal treatment to be very helpful for ADHD. But, of course you need to find a highly qualified individual, with a long track record of success. Another thing to look for is the willingness to discuss your child's individual case, and then follow up with you.

The key to finding helpful remedies is to research, investigate and be smart about what you buy and put into your body. With ADHD, you need to be extra careful, because the bodies of ADHD sufferers can be more sensitive than most. Some natural products that can be helpful in easing symptoms of the disorder are available on the market.

Sheba Hospital, in Israel has developed a safe, natural ADHD treatment. The herbal compound called "Clarity" has proven highly effective in clinical trials.

One nutrient that can be helpful in treating the symptoms of ADHD is called L-tyrosine. This is an amino acid that makes up the building blocks of dopamine. If taken before meals, L-tyrosine can act somewhat like a stimulant, with no side effects. An individual may take a dose of 500 mg-1500 mg up to three times a day. L-tyrosine is a good alternative to a stimulant because its effects are softer than those of drugs like Ritalin and Adderall. Additionally, it wears off a lot easier and is much less harsh on the body. L-tyrosine can also be taken with prescription stimulants to enhance their effect.

DLPA is the amino acid precursor for norepinephrine. This neurotransmitter has been shown to be low in ADHD. Another effective supplement is called SAME, which can help with low grade depression, present in people with ADHD. SAME can be somewhat stimulating as well, and has been demonstrated to be helpful with the chronic pain condition fibromyalgia.

A nutrient that can be helpful in treating the symptoms of ADHD is PhosphatidylSerine, a phospholipid found in brain cells, specifically neurons. Another supplement, beneficial for treating ADHD anxiety and depression is 5htp, an amino acid precursor for the neurotransmitter serotonin. It actually increases the amount of serotonin in your brain, and can be quite helpful. SSRI antidepressants only recycle the serotonin that already exists in your brain; therefore 5htp is in some ways more effective.
