Treating ADHD effectively requires following a balanced treatment plan that includes diet, natural supplements and exercise. Although at first this approach may seem overwhelming, it is easy to put into place and best of all will give your child a foundation for healthy living.
Before we get into the details of the plan, let’s talk about drugs. Although drugs can work well for some kids, they do the opposite for others by making their symptoms worse because of the side effects. All drugs have side effects, some kids are just more tolerant of them than others. If your child has taken ADHD drugs that have made him worse, natural options can be a way of treating ADHD effectively without any of the worrisome side effects.
So let’s talk about the ADHD treatment plan. The plan has three parts: nutrition, supplementation and exercise. While making changes in just one of these areas will benefit your child by reducing symptoms, putting all three into action will make the biggest and most profound changes in your child’s life.
The first step is changing your child’s diet. Don’t worry'” this doesn’t require radical change'”just small substitutions over time. Your ultimate goal is to get your child eating less processed food and more fresh produce, especially colorful vegetables which are packed with nutrients. As your child develops a taste for healthy food, the junk food will be less and less appealing. So introduce more lean protein, wild caught fish, fresh vegetables and fruit in season, nuts and whole grains. Get your child to help you prepare these meals, so that in addition to treating ADHD effectively, you will be teaching a life long skill.
Next, it’s important to take a natural supplement that is formulated specifically to treat the symptoms of ADHD. Look for one that has been FDA-approved for safety and that contains clinically proven ingredients like Arsen Iod, Verta Alb and Tuberculinum which have been shown to calm hyperactivity, reduce impulsivity and aggression, increase focus and help your child to stay on task. In addition to reducing symptoms by giving the brain the nutrients it needs to function properly, this ADHD treatment plan has no side effects and can also heal the harmful effects that stress, agitation and hyperactivity have on the brain.
Finally, make sure your child gets daily exercise. The body was designed to move and high energy kids in particular need to get regular exercise. Pick something that your child is interested in and sign up for lessons or team sports. You can also do fun things like putting on music and dancing around the house, playing a game of basketball or going for a family bike ride.
