Homeopathy – An Alternative Approach for ADD/ADHD
Kids don’t come with instruction manuals. As a parent, it can be confusing, frustrating, and exhausting when faced with what to do when you have a child diagnosed with ADHD. Difficulty staying on task, restlessness, impulsive behavior, and temper tantrums can cause problems at school and at home. According to the CDC, ADHD is the most common psychiatric diagnosis in children today. It can be overwhelming when deciding exactly how to handle the situation.
A 2001 study published in the British Homeopathic Journal sites 75% of ADHD patients studied improved with homeopathy compared to 65% who showed improvement with prescription medication. No side effects were shown with homeopathy. It was observed that homeopathy is particularly useful treatment for ADHD in preschoolers.
Homeopathy is a 200-year old system of medicine. Its roots go back thousands of years, and it is widely practiced in Europe, India, and South America. The medicines come from nature and are free of dangerous side effects like sleeplessness, anxiety, and tics.
Most kids react brilliantly to the remedies as homeopathy treats the whole child. Each child is viewed as a unique human being rather than being lumped into a broad category. A homeopath spends time understanding the individualized thinking and feeling of each child. Not only do attention and behavioral symptoms improve dramatically with the appropriate homeopathic medicine, so do physical problems such as allergies, asthma, headaches, and stomach aches. When you individualize care for each child, the whole child heals. When you heal the whole child, the whole family heals.
