What Is ADD and ADHD

Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) are conditions that challenge children's and adults' ability to sustain concentration, maintain their attention spans, and stay focused. ADD often presents people with behavioral issues and emotional ups and downs.

Signs Of ADD and ADHD

There are numerous signs that can indicate ADD or ADHD and they may vary over the course of a certain period, such as:

  • Inattentiveness
  • Concentration difficulties
  • Severe mood swings
  • Hyperactive behavior
  • Forgetfulness
  • Impulsiveness
  • Behavioral changes
  • Inability to focus for a short period of time
  • Prone to easy distraction.
What Causes ADD and ADHD

While there can be various factors that may contribute to the condition, studies have identified a gene that causes brain tissues associated with attention to be thinner. Here are some things that can trigger this:

  • Genetics
  • Injuries that affect the chemical balance of the brain
  • Diets high in sugar, artificial and processed foods
  • Lifestyle Choices (i.e. mothers who smoke or drink while pregnant or have previous conditions before)

Dherbs Approach...adjusting your diet is always key!

Natural Remedies
  • ADD and ADHD symptoms are primarily dealt with by diet changes. It’s ideal to eliminate processed and genetically modified foods that contain preservatives, artificial ingredients, and sugar. These kinds of foods can contribute to impaired body functions.
  • Developing and further stimulating the brain helps to minimize the symptoms of the disorders. Small things like minimizing the amount of television watched, creating routines or patterns, reading aloud, meditating for 10 minutes each day, and doing puzzles help children and adults with ADD or ADHD.
  • We don’t support the use of medication and drugs. The medication that ‘s prescribed for people with ADD only helps to control the symptoms and does not address the underlying cause.
