ADHD - Does it Control Your Life?

If you have a child who is suffering from ADHD, you may be at your wit's end trying to help him or her live a happy life.

Not only do you face challenges at home, but teachers may be calling with behavior complaints. And your child can't help it!

Thousands of children today are taking prescription drugs to control this hyperactive behavior, and that's scary. No one knows what the long term effects of those drugs may be. If you're concerned about your child's long-term health, you're probably trying to get at the root cause and stop it, so that you can get him or her off those dangerous drugs.

One thing to consider is diet. Not just the sugars that are generally blamed for hyperactive behavior, but the possibility of allergies.

Most people think of an allergy as something that causes sneezing, but the effects can actually be as varied as the allergens themselves. One gentleman I know suffered from aching knees until his acupuncturist discovered that the cause was the orange juice he'd been drinking in quantity to help cure a head cold. He wasn't allergic to oranges, but he was allergic to the pesticide residue found in the orange juice.

Your child (or you, if you're having problems) may be allergic to something in your home, or something he's eating. Remember that unless they're 100% organic, fruits and vegetables have fertilizer and pesticide residues... and pre-packaged foods are loaded with chemicals.

If my child suffered from ADHD, one of the first places I'd look for help is an acupuncturist who has studied the NAET technique and can pinpoint an allergy.

But there's something else that could be causing the trouble - and that's an imbalance in energies. Some past event may have had a bigger impact than you realized at the time, and it may have triggered an imbalance that is now showing itself as ADHD.

You can address that issue with Feel Bach's Attention Deficit Blend.

Bach Flower Essences are all-natural and have no adverse side-effects. They can also be used in conjunction with prescription medications without fear of drug interactions. And at only $7.95 per bottle, it poses no risk to your bank account, either.

Attention Deficit can also help both children and adults when current circumstances have thrown them into a state of confusion. If you're having trouble focusing and concentrating, even if you don't know why, order a bottle for yourself.

We all have enough challenges to face... being unable to focus is one we don't need.

Being a parent with a child who has ADHD is a very hard task. I don’t think of it as a problem rather I think that it is a simple challenge that we can overcome. I take things as simple as possible so that I won’t complicate the situation. And I agree that diet has something to do with ADHD. More info here.
