With all the different medications out there for attention deficit disorders (ADD,ADHD) such as Ritalin, Dexedrine, Adderall etc.. there also comes a price. Although some work better then others, most medications prescribed have unwanted side effects including headaches, sleep problems, and a blunted appetite. This shouldn’t be the case though, if your taking a medication to supposedly help reduce or cure your original symptoms then why should you have to deal with additional symptoms caused by the medication that’s supposed to help you? Instead, lets take a look at natural alternatives that have been used for thousands of years.
This herb has been known to have cell-stimulating, anti-inflammatory, and sedative effects. The sedative effects are very mild, with just enough sedation to help with ADD and ADHD symptoms such as hyperactivity and impulsive behaviors. Because of its mild effect, thorowax root is safe for children and adults.
Oriental ginseng has been proven to have many memory-boosting effects and could be found in many supplements targeting this in particular. Ginseng has also been know for its ability to improve oxygen flow to the brain, in which increases normal brain development, endurance, and relieves stress. This herb is an effective alternative to typical ADD and ADHD medications without the unwanted side effects.
Skullcap root is very helpful in preventing symptoms such as hyperactivity. Skullcap root can also create a balance of the chemicals in the brain that control your nervous system. In most cases of ADD and ADHD the balance is off, causing the symptoms of hyperactivity, restlessness and impulsive behaviors.
Although this herb has many different helpful properties, the herb is most effective with calming nerves and creating that peace of mind while being used as a ADD and ADHD medication alternative.
Ginkgo biloba increases the amine neurotransmitter substances in the brain, which helps counteract some of the chemical deficiencies often seen in children and adults with ADD or ADHD. With the herbs ability to boost cognitive brain function, this makes it easier to have a clear mind and calm nerves.
Poria helps by improving digestion and calming nerves. As a supplement, poria can eliminate toxin from your body that also contribute to the symptoms of ADD and ADHD.
If your looking to use an alternative to a chemically induced medicine with unwanted side effects for your ADD and ADHD symptoms, try using a more natural way that has been proven and used for thousands of years. With previous studies there has been up to a 94% improvement rate in patients. What do you have to lose?
