Giving your child a natural remedy for ADHD is a quick, healthy way to minimize symptoms. In this article, you’ll learn why these remedies are considered more effective than prescription drugs and what to look for in a good one.
Although some medical professionals would have you believe that ADHD natural alternatives are something new or weird, the herbs that these remedies are made from have been used for centuries for treating various conditions. Before we take a closer look at these ingredients though, let’s talk about prescription drugs and why they may not be the best treatment choice for your child.
The most important thing you need to know about prescription drugs for ADHD is that while they do work for some kids, they make other children much worse. This is due to their long list of side effects. Even the least dangerous side effects can have serious implications. For instance, loss of appetite and sleeplessness which are common side effects of these drugs can seriously affect a child’s development and ability to learn. Not to mention the possibility for these drugs to have long term effects on the brain. After all, your child’s brain is still developing.
The next thing that you need to know is that drugs work by suppressing symptoms. They do not heal the cause of ADHD. If your child stops taking them, the symptoms will return.
This is why a growing number of parents around the world are taking a closer look at ADHD natural alternatives. The benefits of giving your child these remedies are clear. First of all, they have no side effects or long term complications, so they are completely safe. Second, they work by giving the brain the nutrients it needs to heal itself instead of just suppressing symptoms. Third, you do not need to get a prescription to give them to your child.
Now that you know the benefits of giving your child a supplement to treat ADHD, here’s what to look for in a good one. First of all, make sure that it has been FDA-approved. Second, look for a formula that has been proven to reduce symptoms (like hyperactivity, agitation, impulsivity) and increase focus and self-control. An effective natural remedy for ADHD will contain the herbs Verta Alb, Arsen Iod and Tuberculinum. Best of all, as these natural ingredients give your child’s brain the nutrients it needs to function better, over time, it will begin to heal, so eventually, your child can stop taking them.
So there you have it: there are real benefits to giving your child natural ADHD alternatives, especially when compared to prescription drugs.
