Looking for a plan for non medicinal treatment of ADHD? In this article, you’ll learn about a completely natural way to treat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder that is simple, practical and can help your child start doing better and behaving more appropriately at home and at school.
Essentially the plan for non medicinal treatment of ADHD involves a good diet, supplements and daily exercise. Although this may not seem like much, it is highly effective. Why? Because food, supplements and exercise are the way the body refuels, repairs and renews itself. Don’t underestimate the power of such a simple system.
First let’s talk about a proper diet. A good diet is full of protein and the phytonutrients that only come from fresh produce that is eaten in season. Think lean meat, fish, and other sources of protein like beans and nuts. Also, while whole grains are healthy, if your child has gluten allergy, eliminate wheat and other foods containing it from the diet.
If your child does eat junk food, then use what I call the substitution method to slowly wean your child from these unhealthy foods. Simply substitute healthy foods for processed foods by matching taste and/or texture. A good example is to switch potato chips for salted celery sticks because they are both salty and crunchy. Do this over a period of time, so your child doesn’t feel deprived. Be a good role model and make sure you are eating these healthy foods as well.
Following a program for non medicinal treatment of ADHD means eventually you want your child to avoid drinking soda and eating packaged foods that contain dyes, preservatives and other chemicals that could be adversely affecting brain function and making the symptoms of ADHD worse.
The next thing to do is make sure your child gets daily exercise. Although this is important for every child, it is particularly important for kids with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Exercise relieves stress and returns the mind and body to a balanced state, particularly exercise that is vigorous and fun. Think fun family activities like bike rides, hiking and even organized sports. Regular exercise will do wonders for your child. Try it.
Finally, make sure that your child takes a daily natural remedy designed specifically to treat the symptoms of ADHD. These supplements relieve hyperactivity, reduce outbursts, impulsivity and tantrums and increase focus and the ability to take a task to its completion. Of course, not all remedies are created equal, so make sure to find one that is FDA-approved and contains clinically proven ingredients including Verta Alb, Arsen Iod and Hyocyamus. This is the healthiest non medicinal treatment of ADHD and has no concerns or side effects.
So don’t delay. Get your child started on this program today and you will be pleased and proud with his or her changes in attitude, behavior and performance.
