Attention Deficit Syndrome (ADHD) affects more and more children. Strenuous medical treatment and long-term therapy have prompted parents to look for natural non-addictive treatments. The symptoms of ADHD include hyperactivity, attention deficit and lack of concentration. These general symptoms are associated with serious deficiencies in language, understanding the meaning of things or emotional disturbances.
Most of the time, little children suffering from ADHD are perceived as problematic children, with destructive personalities, disobedient and uneducated. In fact, this is their way of showing affection, and most parents later discover the disease.
Drug treatment for small patients consists of a psychostimulant, and the most widespread is Ritalin and antidepressants. Exceeding recommended doses is very common in most patients, so Ritalin is currently also used as a medicine to increase intellectual performance.
For the treatment of ADHD, the most important things are the therapy sessions. Practicing things learned with the help of the psychologist is beneficial for the little ones who, in some cases, at a young age, ask for a glass of water screaming.
These exercises are matched with natural treatments that help to fix and understand the things learned with the therapist. Plant teas with attention-boosting properties are the best substitutes for drug treatment.
