Alternative Medicine, Nutrition, and ADHDADHD is an inherited neurological, behavioral, developmental disorder (about three fourths of all diagnosed ADHD cases are thought to be genetic in nature), which is considered to be chronic and incurable. Symptoms most commonly associated with ADHD are hyperactivity, lack of attention span, forgetfulness, and poor impulse control. Roughly sixty percent of all children who are diagnosed with ADHD will continue to be affected by the disorder as adults.
In recent years over two hundred controlled medical studies have suggested that the best, most cost affective treatment of ADHD was with stimulant medications such as Ritalin and Concerta; however, more long term studies seem to indicate that drug therapy may not provide any better long term results than psychotherapy.
Many physicians support a treatment regimen that uses both pharmaceuticals and psychotherapy to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
A variety of sources indicate that the following micronutrients, supplements, and/or herbs may potentially be helpful for this condition. However, it may be wise to consult with your physician prior to taking nutritional supplements and this is certainly recommended for individuals with a diagnosed condition, particularly those who take prescribed medication.
