attention deficit hyperactivity disorder myths

Could I have ADD or AD/HD?

I never can pay attention in class and I always never do homework. I took an ADD and AD/HD quiz and I scored 55 on it. It said I should get tested.

I have had Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder ever since I was 6 years old. When you have it bad, you wouldn’t be taking quizzes to see if you have it. You would have already been put on medications a long time ago. That is only the case for people with a more serious case of ADHD. But there is a better possibility you might have ADD. That is the most commonly overlooked disorder. That is without the hyperactivity. The only difference with the two disorders is that with ADD, the symptoms all relate to multiple issues with focus and committing. With ADHD, it is the same thing as ADD, but with Hyperactivity as well. There are a great amount of students that have bad grades but people have to learn how to figure out which are the ones that choose to be lazy, and which are the ones that can’t help their lack of focus and interest. With ADD, you will have a problem with sticking to almost anything. Consistently, people with ADD suffer with finishing a task they start. Plus they constantly lose belongings. They don’t pay attention to where they are placing things which causes them to misplace things. And another large issue you would have with ADD: UNORGINIZATION. I mean…SERIOUS unorginization. And when you read something, you’re not actually interpreting it at all. You’re just reading the words but not REALLY understanding anything you are reading. This is from the serious lack of focus. ADD is a real disorder and it is a myth when it is said that people can overcome the disorder if they had some willpower. With ADD, the brain has a certain chemical management disability that impairs willpower and many other ADD related symptoms. So, if you have all of these symptoms and more, I strongly suggest you visit your doctor to discuss the possibility.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Natural

How do you cope with a short attention span?

Yes, actually… there’s quite a bit you can do. And doing that is really important to many aspects of your life.

The ability to focus your mind is like a muscle in many ways — if it isn’t exercised, it tends to become weak. There’s a near explosion of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) among both children and adults today… a predictable consequence of the sheer rate of change in modern times and the widespread presence of multiple sources of mental stimulation: 500 channels of television, magazines, books, video games, stress from work, life challenges, and of course the Big Kahuna of ADD: the Internet.

None of these stimulation sources are good or bad in and of themselves, but their omnipresence in our lives produces new challenges for the mind: a human mind simply cannot drink deeply from a “firehose” of stimulation, information, entertainment, and distractions. It saturates quickly and loses its sensitivity, it’s ability to create and imagine, it’s capacity for subtlety and multi-perspectival thinking.

Our emotional, mental, social, and spiritual development all depend heavily on being able to slow down and “absorb and integrate” our experience. Our experience is sort of like firewood: in order to make use of it, we have to burn it up. “Burning it up” means paying attention to it, experiencing it, BEING with it — feeling the feelings and being aware of the thoughts, noticing connections, sensing subtle relationships.

This “fire of awareness” is the natural capacity of the mind to be present in the moment and flow forward with the movement of time. When we do this, a natural kind of absorption and integration occurs, in which we learn from our experiences and synthesize ever-greater “wholes” out of the random pieces and bits remembered, thought, and felt. This process takes time, and most importantly, it takes attention.

So how does one develop this muscle of attention? With lots of time and effort, spent in the right kind of exercise. (Sorry, there are no shortcuts.) All approaches that work depend on repetitively interrupting the tendency to get “lost in thought”. “Awareness practice” is the proper name for these approaches — meditation being the most well-known variation. Typically the student is instructed to sit still and upright (on a cushion, or a chair) and attend to their breath: just the simple in and out of air in the lungs or through the nose, etc. Just sit there, and be aware — don’t get lost in thought: if thoughts arise, just acknowledge them and then return your attention to your breath. If you find yourself lost in thought, just acknowledge that, notice what the thoughts are, and then return to the breath.

This sounds really simple. And in a way, it is. But it’s devilishly difficult to do — because that muscle of attention is very weak for most of us. Almost any thought that arises is more tempting and attractive than following our own breath in and out… and like a junkie sighting his favorite dealer, the attention will be automatically drawn toward the stimulation. So just like building a physical muscle, mastery only comes with ongoing and regular practice.

I usually recommend that people start with 5 minutes a day and work up to 30 minutes a day — 30 minutes of “time out” to allow the mind to integrate a whole day’s worth of inattention and distraction. Even that isn’t really adequate to burn it all up, but it does make a big difference over a sustained period. After a few months of daily practice, it’s common for people to start noticing changes which are obviously attributable to their meditation practice — sudden insights that seem to come out of nowhere, a deeper ability to relax and enjoy life, heightened sensory awareness, etc.

If practice persists for a number of years, profound transformations begin to occur in your personality, worldview, and values. These transformations are not the result of being “taught” something by some teacher (although a teacher is helpful), nor are they the result of learning some new ideas. They’re the result of your own mind discovering and integrating the fragments of knowledge which it didn’t even realize were already on hand. It’s the deepening of one’s own self-understanding, which pulls in everything one has learned about life in the process.

Here’s how I like to think of it: consider that your assignment is to sit quietly for 30 minutes and just be satisfied with the moment, without getting lost in thought. It’s really quite pleasant when you can do that. Of course, most of us CAN’T do that, and that’s the whole point — whatever beliefs, attitudes, or mental habits are preventing you from just sitting there quietly and being satisfied are the same things that are preventing you from experiencing life as whole, complete, and satisfying. So if you can’t sit and be satisfied — sit and observe. Be aware, study, and experience the source of your dissatisf

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Prevention

attention deficit hyperactivity disorder prevention

Are prematurely-born children at greater risk for learning problems later in life?

If the answer is “yes”, then please explain why. Thank you.

Scientists at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) today [8-14-02] that premature babies are more likely to have significant learning and behavioral problems after the age of five years than babies born full-term. Using sophisticated statistical methodology to analyze 20 years of research around the world, the scientists at UAMS confirmed that children born prematurely have much lower cognitive scores, with lower-than-average learning ability, and more behavioral problems after the age of five years than children born full-term. Dr. K. S. “Sunny” Anand (Arkansas Children’s Hospital)

The scientists call for “concerted efforts of clinicians and neuroscientists to [study] the biological, environmental, and psychosocial mechanisms responsible for these cognitive and behavioral differences.”
Children born prematurely have been found in numerous studies to have “huge differences” in cognitive scores, and to be aggressive or withdrawn or suffer from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. However, researchers who conducted the other studies over the years used a variety of population groups and research methods, making the body of knowledge about the effects of pre-maturity questionable.
K. S. “Sunny” Anand, MBBS, D.Phil., FAAP, FCCM, FRCPCH, led the study, called a meta-analysis. Dr. Anand is the Morris and Hettie Oakley Chair in Critical Care Medicine in the Department of Pediatrics in the UAMS College of Medicine and chief of critical care at Arkansas Children’s Hospital. The National Institute for Child Health and Human Development and the Blowitz-Ridgeway Foundation provided research funding to the Arkansas Children’s Hospital Research Institute for the study.
The scientists analyzed 227 studies, eliminating studies that had methodological problems, before drawing conclusions from the remaining studies. Their analysis should “eliminate controversies” about the importance of pre-maturity for long-range outcomes.
While the relationship between pre-maturity and later learning and behavioral problems is now clearer, the actual causes of those problems in children born prematurely are not yet clear.
The UAMS investigators speculate in JAMA that the medical complications of pre-maturity; the painful medical procedures that many premature babies experience in hospitals; and prolonged separation from their mothers all may contribute to lower-than-average brain development and thus to later learning and behavioral problems. They also point to the stress and depression that having a premature baby can cause for parents, particularly mothers, as a potential factor in the children’s later developmental problems.
Dr. Anand commented recently that the increasing survival rate for extremely low birth weight and premature babies means that “a larger and larger pool of children” will have developmental problems “as times goes on … and the incremental costs of educating these children are likely to be astronomical.”
“With an improved understanding of the underlying biological mechanisms, we can begin to develop more focused therapeutic interventions to decrease or prevent these long-term impairments following survival after pre-term birth,” the scientists conclude in JAMA.
The following investigators, all with UAMS, collaborated with Anand: Adnan T. Bhutta, MBBS, FAAP, assistant professor of pediatrics; Mario A. Cleves, Ph.D., associate professor of pediatrics and senior bio-statistician, Arkansas Center for Birth Defects Research and Prevention; Patrick H. Casey, M.D., FAAP, the Harvey and Bernice Jones Professor of Developmental Pediatrics; and Mary M. Cradock, Ph.D., assistant professor of pediatrics. The researchers formulated a novel method for assessing the quality of observational studies which other scientists will now be able to use.
Anand also is conducting multiple studies of the relationship of pain to brain development in premature infants. By observing the progress of premature infants who receive pain medication in conjunction with painful medical procedures, and through laboratory experiments, he has formed the hypothesis that repetitive pain in the first weeks of life causes the death or damage of certain brain cells and may consequently reduce learning ability and alter behavioral development. As part of this research, Anand is participating in a nationwide study of the use of pain medication to reduce or eliminate pain during essential medical procedures for premature infants. The National Institutes of Health are sponsoring the study at 11 centers around the nation and four hospitals in Europe.

attention deficit hyperactivity disorder assessment

I have ADD and my parents dont care?

I know for a fact that i have ADD. Like i honestly just cannot concentrate on assignments in school and what not and i get so angry at myself when i forget things or trail off. This problem is really affecting my grades and i would like to see a doctor about it. Heres the other problem. My parents are stubborn hispanics who dont believe in any of this and think the doctor is a waste of time and that ADD doesnt exist. So no matter how much information i show them or beg them they wont let me see a doctor or anything. Its really fustrating. what should i do?

firstly, its ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) not ADD.

self diagnosis is pretty uncommon, i dont know too many people with ADHD that yell it from the roof tops.

I would suggest that you see some sort of social worker, look in the telephone directory for your local govt dept. Also, I would go see your school guidance councillor or school psychologist, to get an assessment as a starting point.

you may just have a hormonal imbalance due to puberty, or growing, so dont be so sure u have ADHD, only a qualified physician can make that call.

hope it works out.

It is possible to have ADHD, OCD, and personality disorders or not.

i didn't think you may have multiple problems. I know I have someone concentration and guided me there. Two things, but it is posible two disorders and diseases or personality? I have said in the question before them. lol pretty detailed.

krazykid92 – from day to work in facilities psychiatric patients. I have seen and heard people were diagnosed with ADHD, OCD, personality and disease. I sure think so. Possible a few things about how to diagnose these important considerations. : ADHD – in adolescents, adolescents and – Symptoms of ADHD is just too far with each other. Other disorders such as OCD, depression,. bipolar, verbal learning and problems and diseases not only the senses, to name a few. . OCD – have abnormal plain old overwhelming force. Personality disorders and obsessive force. These two very different conditions. " , Like ADHD – a dominant forces such as "key words" that we often Not heard about widespread species in disease personality . Personality disorders – these are not as light conditions and the diagnosis should not. Light personality disease is a disease usually diagnosed when the body and some features larger than a simple violent or serious cases of the disease situation. Such sounds – abnormal is the deep roots of the people. . One in mind, I was wrong. Anti – social person, only someone who does not get along with others. The people who can diagnose, because there is not interest and lack of clarity in determining the ability of other people. And the impact of their actions. (Very described simplistic). So to answer your questions. YES – the diagnosis can have more than one person, and it is possible to have all 3 where you live. In my day a therapist I am always careful to make any. Decision mentioned above. It seems that in today's children, at least expressed interest. bit or behavior problems are "messages" that have ADHD or OCD is more severe the disease. And again I want and do as much as to make sure that is true will . Good luck and I hope this is helpful. . Dr. Stern (call me Rory)

Celiac Disease, Autism & Developmental Disorders – Is There A Link?

It appears that the basis of this story traces back to a 1998 medical paper that suggested that autistic children often suffered from a problem called “leaky gut” /  “autistic entercolitis”.

The idea was that opiates found in gluten and casein (dairy) were released when gluten food was improperly digested. This happened when the GI tract was damaged by such things as celiac disease. The opiates then supposedly were released into the bloodstream causing or increasing obvious autistic like symptoms. This paper is now widely discredited and retracted.

The current concern is that the ‘bounce back effect’ from such a retraction is the discrediting of celiac disease in healthy and autistic children. For those unaware of ‘Developmental disorders’ in children they cover five main categories. These are:


      Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

      Attention deficit disorder (ADD)

      Non-verbal learning disorder (NLD)

      Pervasive development disorder (PDD)



Some of the symptoms of celiac disease and/ or milk intolerance on the Gastro Intestinal (GI) tract in children are:

•    Bloating/swollen tummy

•    Breaking wind frequently

•    Constipation

•    Craving/ dislike for certain foods

•    Dark shadows under the eyes

•    Diarrhea

•    Eating non-food items e.g. earth, paper, sand, soap

•    Excessive sweating, especially at night

•    Giggling/ screaming for no apparent reason

•    Gut disorders in the family

•    Inability to control body temperature

•    Pale skin/pasty face

(Ref 1)

It appears that the most rigorous research into the possible links between celiac disease (or other GI disorders) and autism (or other related Developmental disorders) are coming from American PEDIATRICS department studies.

One definition of Autism is that that it is “a pervasive developmental disorder (PDD) that is generally manifested in the first 3 years of life and characterized by dysfunction in social interaction and communication” AND although not included in the diagnostic criteria, there have been many reports describing gastrointestinal symptoms in 9% to 84% of children with autism.

However the very latest papers released in January 2010 suggest that “care providers should be aware that problem behavior in patients with ASD’s may be the primary or sole symptom of the underlying medical condition, including some gastrointestinal disorders.” (Ref 2)

Another study confirms that a “Significant differences between autism case and control subjects were identified in the cumulative incidence of constipation (33.9% vs 17.6%) and feeding issues/ food selectivity (24.5% vs 16.1). BUT No significant associations were found between autism case status and overall incidence of gastrointestinal symptoms or any other gastrointestinal symptom category.” ( Ref 3) Which leads to the conclusion that “as constipation and feeding issues/food selectivity often have a behavioral etiology, data suggest that a neuro behavioral rather than a primary organic gastrointestinal etiology ” is the cause – that is, the autism was not specifically affected by gluten.



The American Association of Pediatrics reports clarify that children with autism and other Developmental disorders often do have untreated gastrointestinal issues. However they stress that there is no higher rate of GI disorders in children with autism than any other children.

Further to this they add the caution that a central difficulty in recognizing and characterizing gastro intestinal dysfunction with ASDs is the communication difficulties experienced by many affected individuals. That is, GP’s and parents often fail to recognize the symptoms of GI because they are handling some greater behavioral disorders and hence GI disorders, including celiac disease, can easily go undiagnosed for even longer than the regular population (which can take ten years).

One can draw the conclusion from this latest research that just as easy as it is for celiac disease to go undiagnosed in healthy children and adults, gluten intolerance would very easily be ignored in symptoms of a child with strong behavioral disorders such as autism.

If you are at all concerned with whether someone you know with autism or a related disorder may have a GI such as celiac disease, it is best discussing this with your doctor. However do remember, that for a full confirmation of the disease a biopsy will usually need to be taken which requires that the person is still ingesting gluten at the time.

Do I have ADHD? I’m really worried!! 10 points!!?

I dont know if it’s normal or I have Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)


After i watch a movie, i get always confused with the story, characters, or anything… it’s sooo hard for me sometimes to understand what the actors are talking about and after that, i was like, “huh? i didn’t understand the movie”… so what i do, i go to wikipedia or imdb to find out more about the plot, the names of the characters, etc… and only then, that i become “relaxed” and satisfied with the movie…

in other words, i really dont get the details unless ill look it up in wikipedia or somewhere…

also, when i read a book, sometimes i don’t understand what the book is saying and it makes me read the passage at least twice….

another thing is, i feel as if my mind is in another planet sometimes in class… i was always daydreaming… lol

SO, are these signs of ADHD??

is it only me or there’s someone else on here who feel the same thing??

You sound like you may the ADHD-inattentive type like I do. I’m not that bad with movies but I can’t count how many times I have had to reread a sentence or paragraph.

I daydream a lot. Even when people are talking to me.

Adhd Disorder Test

adhd disorder test

How do they test you for Bi-Polar disorder and ADD? (Not ADHD)?

is it like a bloodtest, MRI, or talking to a psycologist?

There is no medical test – that’s just a fact. It will be always someone’s opinion and if you go to more psychiatrists as some people did to test them and you say the same symptoms – you get different diagnosis.

This should explain the difference in tests.
This 2 minutes long video explains the difference between diagnosis in real medicine backed up by science and psychiatry diagnosis like ADHD backed up by personal opinions.

And this should explain much more.

Psychiatry – NO SCIENCE-NO CURES (4:54min)
Can psychiatrists help you with antidepressants? Are there any cures in psychiatry today? How many people have been cured? What are your chances?
Check it for yourself – hear it from interviewed psychiatrists.

Psychiatrists answer questions about their diagnostic manual and side effects of drugs.
Patients have something to say too.

ADD & ADHD Disorders – Must Know Facts For Parents

Is there a difference between ADD and ADHD? ADD and ADHD disorders are usually lumped together as one disorder, the only difference being that ADD is sometimes used to distinguish those children who have the inattentive type while the hyper and impulsive kids usually get the ADHD label. In some of the older manuals used by doctors,ADD and ADHD disorders were one and the same thing.

If we are still using the ADD label or (ADHD Inattentive type) as it is most commonly called these days, these children frequently are spaced out and have a lot of problems in finishing a task and may flit from one task to another. These children are daydreaming types as well and often do not cause any behavior problems at school. It is for this reason that because they do not disturb the class, they are often neglected and never diagnosed at all with ADD ADHD disorder.

In many ways, the children with hyper and impulsive tendencies have more problems with behavior at home and at school because they are noisier and more intrusive in every sense. They often are diagnosed with a co -morbid disorder called OCD (obsessive Compulsive Disorder) or ODD (Oppositional Defiant Disorder). The ADHD Inattentive type child is more likely to suffer from co-existing conditions such as depression and anxiety.

As regards treatment for ADD and ADHD disorders, here are some facts for parents. Using psychostimulants is full of unknowns and there are lots of uncertainties about their efficacy and the long term effects. It is true that ADHD drugs can work in as many as 70% of cases. But when we say ‘work’, we should be cautious. Certainly these drugs are great at calming children down and helping them to get focused but the behavior problems will remain.

The drugs themselves such as Ritlain, Adderall and Cylert, to name the most popular ones, are quite powerful mind altering drugs. The most alarming thing is that nobody knows exactly how they work on the chemical neurotransmitters in the child’s brain. The drug companies are equally coy about their long term effects although Ritalin has been on the market now for over forty years and has been used extensively in treating ADD and ADHD disorders. So, where is the research? We should remember too that we are dealing here with amphetamines and they are still regarded as Class II substances so there are all sorts of problems there.

The above information is hard to find and many drug companies do not want to tell the full story about ADD and ADHD disorders. That is why thousands of parents are turning to homeopathic remedies which are gentler and will be equally effective in soothing and calming the child, although they too will certainly not solve any behavioural problems associated with ADD ADHD disorder. The best way of all is to opt for a homeopathic medication which combined with ADHD behavioral therapy will be the most effective in the long run. No pills of whatever kind will teach the child how to cope, socialise, manage tasks and generally grow up to be a well balanced adult.

Dyspraxia The Hidden Disability

The varying degrees of severity with hidden disabilities make them difficult to detect yet there will be tell-tale signs, such as learning difficulties and social behaviour problems. These are becoming more recognized in children and young adults, and it has been suggested that up to 20% of the population may be affected to  some degree. ADD, ADHD, Dyslexia and Dyspraxia all come into the category of these hidden disabilities.

Today I will focus on Dyspraxia.

 The cause of dyspraxia is not known, yet there appears to be a link between immature neurons in the motor cortex and dyspraxia. There is also an inherent link as it runs in families. It has been associated with developmental delays, learning problems and reading difficulties.  

What Is Dyspraxia?

  • Dyspraxia is a neurologically based developmental disability which is present from birth
  • Dyspraxia is a motor planning disorder, not a muscular deficit. A child knows what they want their body to do but can’t get their body to do it.
  • There are three (3) types of Developmental Dyspraxia – Oral, Verbal and Motor.
  • A child with Dyspraxia can have one or a combination of all three types of Dyspraxia and in varying degrees of severity
  • Dyspraxia is a hidden handicap. Children with this disability appear the same as any other child. It is only when a skill is performed that the disability is noticeable.
  • Dyspraxia is believed to be an immaturity of parts of the motor cortex (area of the brain) that prevents messages from being properly transmitted to the body.
  • Dyspraxia affects up to 10% of the population with approximately 70% of those affected being boys.
  • Dyspraxia does not impact on intelligence, children with Dyspraxia have average or above average intelligence
  • Dyspraxia can impact on behaviour and social skills
  • Dyspraxia is a specific learning disability

3 Types of Dyspraxia

Oral Dyspraxia – Oral dyspraxia is a difficulty with planning and executing non-speech sounds, such as blowing, sucking or individual tongue/lip movements. This may indirectly affect speech and/or swallowing skills. A child with Oral Dyspraxia may dribble profusely, have difficulty licking an ice-cream and may have a preference for either soft or hard textured foods.

Verbal Dyspraxia – Verbal Dyspraxia is a speech disorder that affects the programming, sequencing and initiating of movements required to make speech sounds.

Children with Verbal Dyspraxia may:

  • Display highly unintelligible speech
  • Simplify words eg. “bur” for “burger
  • Have inconsistent speech patterns
  • Move sounds in a word eg. “tobe” for “boat”
  • Exhibit “lost” or searching movements of the tongue and lips as they endeavour to find the position to make a sound
  • Have delayed expressive language
  • Adopt a complex gesture system to aid communication skills
  • Have difficulty with sequencing words, and sounds in words eg. “Pataka”

Motor Dyspraxia – Motor Dyspraxia is a difficulty in planning, sequencing and then executing the correct movement to perform age appropriate skills in a smooth and coordinated manner at will or on command.

Children with Motor Dyspraxia may have difficulty with:

  • Learning a new skill
  • Coordinated movement
  • Handwriting
  • Consistent performance
  • Age appropriate skills
  • Generalising learnt skills
  • Timing and rhythm
  • Learning rules
  • Responding quickly
  • Spatial organisation
  • Problem solving
  • Using appropriate cues
  • Analysing what is needed for task performance
  • Preparing for the next stage in task performance

Developmental dyspraxia, is not considered a medical condition, but it may be due to immature neuron development. It is a life-long condition that is more common in males than females. The concept of developmental dyspraxia has existed for more than a century, but differing interpretation of terminology remains. Current estimates range from 5% – 20% with 2% affected severely.

Therapies for Dyspraxia


Speech pathology is one of the therapies for dyspraxia.  Speech pathologists may choose to follow a motor skill training approach which gets people to practice making sounds quickly and accurately, making it easier to put these in normal speech.  People with dyspraxia may also need practice with listening, in order to ensure that they are not leaving sounds out when speaking. 

Occupational therapy is another therapy for dyspraxia.  It helps people to improve physical skills and fine motor tasks.  Physical therapists can also be of help.  Early intervention is important.

Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) was originally created in 1975 by Richard Bandler and John Grinder, but since that time, many others have contributed towards its growth and development. There are several descriptions of what NLP actually is, but they all agree that Modelling is a core component, that opens a window into ascertaining how people function.

It explores the relationship between how one thinks (neuro) and communicates both verbally and non verbally (linguistic), and patterns of behaviour and emotion (programmes). NLP is a behaviour technique that teaches people how to change or adopt new behaviours as required and to choose mental and physical states of wellbeing. In effect, it is about knowing what is going on inside oneself and others.

Neuro Developmental Therapy (NDT) addresses the shortcomings of the vestibular system by encouraging the development of mature reflexes while the Tomatis Method of sound therapy uses specially modified music designed to stimulate the cochlear and vestibular systems and strengthen neural connections from the auditory system to the brain.  The theory for using NDT along with the Tomatis Method draws on the assumption that all types of dyspraxia stem from the same source.  Instead of treating each area of impaired functioning as unrelated, the Tomatis Methods aims to strengthen the structure of the inner ear while the NDT exercises revisit motor development as it ideally should have been experienced.

Naturopathic Medicine, or Naturopathy, is a practice of preventing, assessing and treating conditions of the human mind and body. By integrating conventional health sciences with a range of natural therapies and traditional medicines, naturopathy treats the patient’s mental, emotional and physical states for a lasting effect.

The foundation of Naturopathy is the philosophy of the “healing power of nature”. This means that the body has its own healing energy within and with the help of naturopathic treatment, the body can repair itself and recover from illness if it is in a healthy and supportive environment.

The Role of the Naturopath

A Naturopath aims to educate, empower and motivate the patient to assume more personal responsibility for his or her health by adopting a healthy attitude, lifestyle and diet. They do not simply treat the manifestation of a disease and its effects but rather search for the cause and treat it, rather than the effect. Prevention of disease is accomplished through naturopathic education which builds a lifestyle that supports health and wellbeing.

Benefits of Naturopathy

A Naturopath is trained to employ safe and effective natural therapies that will support and stimulate the healing power of nature in the gentlest, least invasive and most efficient manner possible. Naturopaths use a range of methods to assist in the healing process including Herbal Medicine (in this case to support the central nervous system and brain)  nutrition – diet and lifestyle recommendations, vitamins and minerals, flower essences, homeopathy, hair, tongue, and nail analysis, Iridology and massage.

Treatments for Dyspraxia include herbal combinations that support the brain and central nervous system, nutritional guidelines to reduce ‘problem’ foods, supplements that have shown to be beneficial are recommended. Flower essences carefully chosen to support the emotional wellbeing of the individual.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Update

Update On Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Statistics

Have you been having a few problems recently in keeping an appointment? If you have trouble keeping to the speed limit or multi task continuously at work, this could be one or two of the symptoms of adult ADHD. If your child or teen has ADHD, you too could be just one of the 25% of the parents who are likely to suffer from this condition. Researchers have now established a strong genetic link. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder statistics show too that couples who have ADHD children are twice as likely to seek a divorce or separation as the problems associated with hyperactivity and inattentiveness creates extra tensions within the family unit.

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder statistics recently show that up to 5% of the children aged between 6 and 17 are suffering from this mental disorder. This data came from parents of some 23,000 children who were telephoned by the CDC. There seems to be a steady increase of around 3-5% a year of children with ADHD. But the actual attention deficit hyperactivity disorder statistics could actually be much higher as many cases go undiagnosed. In addition, between 30% to 60% of children who are untreated will risk carrying the condition into adulthood.

Is medication the answer? According to the pharmaceutical companies who have made billions of dollars a year on these drugs, the answer would seem to be a resounding yes. The reality in the average ADHD family tells a different story! Although the figures of deaths of children who have been on the ADHD drugs such as Adderall, Ritalin and Vyvanse, have been tiny, there is a suspicion that many deaths go unreported. The most alarming attention deficit hyperactivity disorder statistics come from a study carried out by by Madelyn Gould of the New York State Psychiatric Institute and Columbia University in New York City which studied the sudden deaths of 564 children. These deaths were caused by multiple factors but the children who had been on ADHD drugs were 7 times more likely to suffer a fatality than those children who were not on drugs.

To medicate or not to medicate? Many parents have to face this question and most will find out what the alternatives are and what the advantages and disadvantages are. As regards ADHD homeopathic cures, there are no side effects, health risks or even any risk of addiction. Costs too are more reasonable. Also behavioral therapy has been shown to be the best and most effective treatment of all in the long term. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder statistics on this type of treatment are now published and well known although not by the pharmaceutical companies!

Fish Oil with Omega-3 Fatty Acids…What is it for? ?

Someone suggested that I use these pills. I want to know what is it actually for?
Where can I get it?
And are there any side effects?

[edit] Health benefits
On September 8, 2004, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration gave “qualified health claim” status to eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) n−3 fatty acids, stating that “supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA [n−3] fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.”[2] This updated and modified their health risk advice letter of 2001 (see below).

People with certain circulatory problems, such as varicose veins, benefit from fish oil. Fish oil stimulates blood circulation, increases the breakdown of fibrin, a compound involved in clot and scar formation, and additionally has been shown to reduce blood pressure.[3][4] There is strong scientific evidence that n−3 fatty acids significantly reduce blood triglyceride levels[5][6][7][8] and regular intake reduces the risk of secondary and primary heart attack.[9][10][11][12]

Some benefits have been reported in conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis[13][14] and cardiac arrhythmias.[15][16][17]

There is a promising preliminary evidence that n-3 fatty acids supplementation might be helpful in cases of depression[18][19] and anxiety.[20][21] Studies report highly significant improvement from n-3 fatty acids supplementation alone and in conjunction with medication.[22]

Some research suggests that fish oil intake may reduce the risk of ischemic and thrombotic stroke.[23][24][25] However, very large amounts may actually increase the risk of hemorrhagic stroke (see below). Lower amounts are not related to this risk,[25] 3 grams of total EPA/DHA daily are considered safe with no increased risk of bleeding involved[26] and many studies used substantially higher doses without major side effects (for example: 4.4 grams EPA/2.2 grams DHA in 2003 study).[18]

Several studies report possible anti-cancer effects of n−3 fatty acids (particularly breast, colon and prostate cancer).[27][28][29] No clear conclusion can be drawn at this time, however.

A 2006 report in the Journal of the American Medical Association concluded that their review of literature covering cohorts from many countries with a wide variety of demographic characteristics demonstrating a link between n−3 fatty acids and cancer prevention gave mixed results.[30] This is similar to the findings of a review by the British Medical Journal of studies up to February 2002 that failed to find clear effects of long and shorter chain n−3 fats on total mortality, combined cardiovascular events and cancer.[31]

In 1999, the GISSI-Prevenzione Investigators reported in the Lancet, the results of major clinical study in 11,324 patients with a recent myocardial infarction. Treatment 1 gram per day of n−3 fatty acids reduced the occurrence of death, cardiovascular death and sudden cardiac death by 20%, 30% and 45% respectively.[32] These beneficial effects were seen already from three months onwards.[33]

In April 2006, a team led by Lee Hooper at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, UK, published a review of almost 100 separate studies into n−3 fatty acids, found in abundance in oily fish. It concluded that they do not have a significant protective effect against cardiovascular disease.[34] This meta-analysis was controversial and stands in stark contrast with two different reviews also performed in 2006 by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition[35] and a second JAMA review[36] that both indicated decreases in total mortality and cardiovascular incidents (i.e. myocardial infarctions) associated with the regular consumption of fish and fish oil supplements. In addition n−3 has shown to aid in other mental disorders such as aggression and ADHD (Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder).[37][38]

Several studies published in 2007 have been more positive. In the March 2007 edition of the journal Atherosclerosis, 81 Japanese men with unhealthy blood sugar levels were randomly assigned to receive 1800 mg daily of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA — an n−3 essential fatty acid from fish oil) with the other half being a control group. The thickness of the carotid arteries and certain measures of blood flow were measured before and after supplementation. This went on for approximately two years. A total of 60 patients (30 in the EPA group and 30 in the control group) completed the study. Those given the EPA had a statistically significant decrease in the thickness of the carotid arteries along with improvement in blood flow. The authors indicated that this was the first demonstration that administration of purified EPA improves the thickness of carotid arteries along with improving blood flow in patients with unhealthy blood sugar levels.[39]

In another study published in the American Journal of Health System Pharmacy March 2007, patients with high triglycerides and poor coronary artery health were given 4 grams a day of a combination of EPA and DHA along with some monounsaturated fatty acids. Those patients with very unh

Adhd Treatment

Modern Diagnosis and Treatments for ADHD
Currently, one of the most common childhood disorders in the world today is ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). It affects almost up to 5 percent of the world’s population of children and as much as 4.7 percent in America are adults with ADHD. The Colorado psychiatry research is continuing to study its cause, effects and treatments. According to the National Institute of Mental Health,
ADHD consists of three distinct types:

– Predominantly hyperactive- impulsive – Where children tend to be active and non-stop movement and/or talking
– Predominantly inattentive – these children mostly keep quiet without paying attention to what they are doing
– Combined Inattentive and hyperactive-impulsive – The most common type of ADHD where children has both symptoms of hyperactive-impulsive and inattentive
Although there is no cure for ADHD, treatments can alleviate most of the symptoms of the disorder: Pharmacologically, where doctors recommend taking a daily dose of medicine which could have short or long periods of efficacy. These, however, could have side-effects like loss of weight, insomnia, among others. Doctors should be monitoring the intake, requiring follow-up visits. Another treatment method is through alternative medicine. The alternative treatment is becoming well known for not having the side-effects of prescribed medicines. Alternative treatments make use of diet and nutrition, social skills development, bio-feedback and changes in behaviour. Alternative medication also exists, including Omega-3 supplements.

The Colorado psychiatry clinics are one of those that adopted a third method of treatment for ADHD patients, which is the ADHD Treatment Centers. ADHD Treatment Centers focus solely on ADHD and ADD cases and provide specialized care for those suffering from the disorder. A Colorado psychiatrist, for example, opened up Wyse Psychiatry, operated by Dr. Brian Wise, for the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD. The Colorado psychiatrist makes use of the latest in techniques and treatment method in order to properly diagnose, and treat the disorder.

The ADHD disorder is not simple to diagnose due to the fact that most parent hesitate to accept the disorder in their child and often don’t agree with the assessment of their child’s behaviour. The Colorado psychiatry clinic uses Quantitative EEG (qEEG) with success for most cases in the proper diagnosis of the disorder. After the correct and specific diagnosis is made, the proper treatment plan can then be formulated. The treatment plan will be unique to the specific condition of the disorder and can be used to assess what particular psychotherapy techniques and/or medications are needed.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder – Is It A Childhood Disorder?

Have you found yourself having a hard time concentrating on the tasks at hand? Perhaps you find yourself getting restless and starting to get involved in physical exercises or becoming a more outgoing person. If these are things that are happening in your life, then you may actually be dealing with a problem that is called attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is a problem that is usually found in young children, especially children that are under the age of seven.

Yes, it is true that children are more commonly affected than adults are by attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Believe it or not, this is a condition that is beginning to affect more and more children and it is often seen in the children of famous people, such as celebrities. The symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder are actually very similar to those found in normal kids. However, it is important that you learn and understand more about attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

According to published reports on the disorder, it is a neurological syndrome and a mental syndrome as well. In fact in some cases it has actually been known as a condition of the brain that does not allow the person affected to properly focus. This leads to the condition where a person who has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder has problems focusing, they may also have problems concentrating, which can go on to become a severe problem, since it is hard to achieve anything without being able to concentrate and focus.

Also, in the United States along, it is estimated that between 2- 5% of children that are school age are now showing signs of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. However, in adults, it usually affects between 2-4% of people, although it is rarely actually diagnosed in adults.

One of the main reasons that it is difficult to diagnose these symptoms in adult patients is that they have been going through the symptoms and dealing with the condition since they were a child. Even though they probably showed manifestations of the problems when they were children, over time they have become more physically and mentally mature. As they mature they learn new skills and acquire more knowledge, which allows them to better deal with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in their life. So, it becomes a problem to actually diagnose this problem.


Ask yourself after reading the above if any or all the symptoms described fit you in any manner? If you think they do then seek competent medical advice. Keep in mind the factors like age, current stress level and general life conditions before you come to a firm conclusion on this. If you happen to have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder as an adult, it can make your life more difficult to deal with, so you need to have treatment from a medical professional. Even though you may have developed methods for coping with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, you still need to get professional help, since your coping methods may fail you from time to time.

This set of workbooks is to raise children’s math ability by taking the boredom out of doing repetitive math drills and also foster a fun yet educational environment. Children learn best while having fun. This is an incredible chess workbook for children.

Our own anecdotal evidence suggests that our unique math and chess integrated workbooks can be an effective teaching method in helping child diagnosed with ADHD or ADD or child with learning difficulties such as dyslexia. The results are most significant when the child is placed in an education environment of one-on-one tutoring. 

Many findings have supported that pupils who find it hard to maintain concentration on a single activity are able to improve this focus on playing chess.

Ho Math and Chess has invented a series of workbooks which truly combines math and chess and a child can learn math using chess knowledge on a variety of puzzle-like problems. These type of problems includes visual image (not just pure numbers), chess symbols, abstract chess values and chess directions and all these are stimuli to kids and keep their interests high while working on computational problems. This also gives children ample opportunities to think visually. Most of the time, the computational questions themselves are not written for children to work on immediately but for children to “create” themselves and these questions have to be actually “hunted” by following directions and chidren love the hunt (puzzles).

Ho Math and Chess workbooks magically keep children’s attention span longer than a typical math workbook could. Children become more engaged and focused when working on math and chess integrated workbooks than on traditional computation workbooks.

By providing math and chess truly integrated workbooks, Ho Math and Chess allows children playing chess while working on math in a fun and also educational setting. The end results are children get to strengthen their working memory and improve their problem solving ability. Doing something children like, they are able to concentrate and improve their ability to focus and allow themselves to immerse in the activity longer.

Ho Math and Chess truly integrated workbooks may be just one of the very effective teaching model for a child with problems of ADHD, ADD, or dyslexia.

attention deficit hyperactivity disorder marriage

From Algonquin and Huntley, IL: How Counseling Can Eliminate your Teenagers Behavior Problems

You may be finding that your teenager is getting into trouble. There are mountains of pressures for kids to cope with today. They include, school, peer problems, adhd, family discord, drugs, alcohol and sex. Also, many kids have problems dealing with past traumas, like abuse, expulsion from school or family alcoholism.

You are probably struggling between granting the increased independence your teen wants and your need to provide appropriate parental guidance.

The problems with your teen may involve shoplifting, resistance to your authority, fighting in school, poor grades, raging or drug or alcohol abuse. More frustrating, is that when you inquire, often your kids can not easily explain the reasons for their actions. In fact, they may appear almost more confused than you are, or, worse yet, they may even view acting-out as appropriate.

You and your spouse may feel frightened, angry, frustrated or at your wits end. You even may question yourselves and worry about where you went wrong. The good news, however, is that there is help available for you and your troubled kid.


Keep your eyes and ears open and look for help at important signs of trouble? It is normal for most adolescents to get into trouble or act-out sometimes. A crucial question for you, though, is how to distinguish when your kid is headed for more serious problems from when his or her bad behavior is just being a normal kid.

One way to do this is to focus on patterns of behavior rather than isolated events. In other words, is your kids acting-out serious and does it take place repeatedly despite your efforts to modify it; or is it relatively minor and only happen sporadically?

Some red flags signaling your need for help may include not only your kids acting-out itself, but also, the existence of other problems or tensions in your family that appear to be degrading the emotional quality of life at home. For example, your kids acting-out may be significantly influenced by any marital problems, including frequent arguing and tension among you, your spouse, and various family members.

Remember, your teens problems and other issues in your marriage and family can interact with each other in a synergistic way, so that it is hard to tell which is the cause and which is the effect.
The obvious signs that signal you need help immediately include, violence against other people, violence or abuse of animals, dangerous fascination or acting-out with fire, frequent rages or loss of temper or your discovery that his friends are involved in crime, abuse or the use of mind-altering substances.

On the other hand, you may just have a gut feeling that something is just not right with your kid.

First, talk with your spouse, and then approach your kid about what is happening. It can also be helpful to talk with those who know him or her too, like teachers, coaches or caregivers. They may be able to provide information about your teen’s mood and behavior outside of the family setting .

Many factors can put your teenagers at risk for problems. Some of them include attention deficit and hyperactivity problems, learning disorders, raging or temper problems, and sometimes, even the premature onset of puberty. All of these factors can affect how your teens peers and social contacts view him or her.

Also, you and your spouses’ problems can exacerbate and intensify any troubles your son or daughter may be having. These problems frequently include depression, excessive anger, substance abuse and domestic abuse.

These issues often interact very negatively with your kid’s temperament, personality and school performance.
Rather than being causative in themselves, they place your kids at heightened risk, accelerate the downward cascading of his or her problems and increase your difficulty in improving his or her behavior and emotional state.


Research suggests that the most effective therapies, even with very difficult adolescents, are those that are family-centered and also address other aspects of their lives. This might include the school environment, peers, jobs, athletics, recreational issues and even your kids employers.

It is a treatment method that focuses on the multiple elements of your kid’s life that shapes his or her outlook. However, the centerpiece of this treatment is the use of individual and family counseling.

Family therapy can also be useful in helping you and your spouse improve your parenting skills, cope more productively with the stress involved and improve your marriage. Psychologists and family therapists can help you and your adolescent improve your understanding of the relevant issues and help you devise solutions that work.

The Unique Aspects of ADHD People

For the most part ADHD people or people with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder are just like everyone else except they look at the world though a different set of lenses. In this article titled “Exploring the Unique Aspects of ADHD People” we will discover what is thought to cause ADHD people to exhibit the unique behaviors we all have read so much about and also explore one of the unique symptoms of the condition that can be an asset if nurtured correctly. So what do you we get started! 

All individuals are reliant on delicate brain chemical balance and interactions to produce the types of consistent behavior that is considered normal or conventional. But in the case of ADHD people this balance is out of whack leading to a myriad of symptoms including inattention/distractibility, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. 

The three brain chemical imbalances thought to produce these symptoms in ADHD people are the brain neurotransmitters norepinephrine, dopamine, and to a lesser degree serotonin. When those with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder have too much norepinephrine present their ability to focus is dramatically reduced and irritability is often seen. When dopamine is in charge, the brain tends to get caught in a repetitive mode, leading ADHD people to enjoy doing the same task over and over again and finally obsessiveness can be a sign of too much dopamine in relation to the amount of serotonin. Nevertheless, most cases of ADHD are associated with too much norepinephrine. 

While the biological aspect is the primary cause genetics also play a role as well. ADHD runs in families in fact most of the diagnostic testing first looks at the ADHD persons family history to see whether or not any one else may have the condition. Several studies by Dr. Joseph Biederman and his colleagues at the Massachusetts general hospital have given credence to this theory. In one study, Dr. Biederman found that first degree relatives (parent and siblings) or someone with ADHD have a five times greater chance of also having ADHD than someone who has no close relatives with the condition.  

While it is true that ADHD people generally underachieve academically (80%) they do possess traits which have made a handful successful later in life. One of these traits is creativity. ADHD people have numerous ideas and thoughts running through their brains. In most cases they are fleeting thoughts which will not be remembered but some of them are bound to result in great ideas. Once an idea has been conceived and captured they tend to have an uncanny ability to latch on to it and look at it in ways that others might not have previously thought about. The trait of creativity is one of their great gifts and when allowed to be nurtured rather than smothered into a soup of conventional logic great things can happen. 

What Next? Certainly for ADHD people finding ways to manage their problematic symptoms of inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity should be the number one goal. In this pursuit many parents of ADHD children and adults alike have found answers in the form of natural ADHD remedies. Whether you are worried about the side effects posed by prescription drugs for ADHD or you want to get to the root of the problem rather than just suppress symptoms, ADHD alternative treatment methods will deliver powerful, lasting results.

Need advise on low cost alternative treatment for adult with ADHD?

He doesn’t have money for a psychiatrist. He could only afford free counseling.

And he does not have the self discipline to significantly modify his diet.

Any herbal advise? Any other ideas?
My brother’s problem is not excessive movement (Hyperactivity). If it was, marijuana would actually be something to consider. I have heard of it being used to deal with hyper-anxious autistic children.

My brother’s problem is more about the lack of attention & focus. He seems to have no incentive. So marijuana would worsen the problem.

I had a son with ADHD and I treated him with natural remedies. I’ve written a few articles (site listed below) on the subject that you might find helpful

ADD/ADHD and Careers Options For It

Many career options are exclusively designed for ADHD needs. They fulfill specific requirements and provide ample opportunities to explore stimulation, multitasking and opportunity to work independently. You should bear it in mind that not all jobs fulfill these three criteria. In such scenario, you must prioritize your choice and prefer one which suits you best. Before deciding on a particular option, you must introspect and find out your preferred category and see whether you would be able to perform it or not. This approach helps you make best career option for yourself.

Technical – The primary prerequisite of a technical job is socialization with the masses for which you perform your duties. You may be assigned for repairing works or installation of equipments. You can serve them as a telephone engineer or an electronics mechanic. This specific work provides you an opportunity to handle multiple tasks independently.

Technological – It sounds similar to work like a technical staff when you perform technological assignments. Only similarity these jobs have is multitasking and freedom which you get in both. In reality there is a big difference in both. You must have knowledge in newer and state-of-the-art technologies to perform this duty. Technological works include working as a computer technician, computer builder or expertise in electronics work.

Maintenance – Working in maintenance field doesn’t mean you work as an office assistance cleaning offices. Carpentering, car mechanics and electrician works are good options. Basic motto of this profession is to help consumers keep their products maintained so that they remain endurable. This profession too provides freedom.

Science – Assisting the research oriented teams in various capacities is a better job option unlike the general phenomenon of avoiding research work which most ADD sufferers do. You can work as a supporting tool in medical field by maintaining machines. Choose a company which specifies in maintaining the medical equipments like EEG/MRI or ultrasound machines for proper functioning,

Military – At first glance, you may be thinking that I’m crazy to include the Military as a field we ADDers could excel in, particularly when you consider how rigid and structured it is. But that is what makes it so beneficial. The military offers structure so that you aren’t necessarily “bouncing” around, and forces you to learn organizational skills. Once you make it through basic training, there are many jobs and careers in the military that you might enjoy: Paratrooper, Helicopter Pilot, Aircraft Technician, and more.

Entrepreneur – If you can harness your energy and remain focused, this can be quite a successful area for you. You will have variety, stimulation, and ultimate control over yourself and your product. You are able to be creative and energetic. Until you can afford it, though, you will have to pay attention to detail work (paper work, etc.) and this can be a stumbling block for a lot of us.

Aviation – There are varieties of job categories. In case you don’t join military, make career in aviation and work as pilot, air traffic controller or aviation engineer. Get opportunity to work independently by choosing your option out of other job categories.

Dentist- Let me tell you something about dentistry as a profession before you blame it a boring thing. You get opportunity to explore variety in it and enjoy freedom as an expert in this specific area.

Transportation – No, there’s not much stimulation depending on what sort of driving you do, but you get a lot of independence. Variety may come in the form of having different routes assigned or changing the product you are delivering. Then again, an ambulance driver may have more stimulation and variety given the nature of the job.

Engineer – Think here about the guy (or gal!) who operates heavy equipment or is a professional engineer (chemical, nuclear, electronics). These jobs offer stimulation and variety while letting you be independent. Even though many of the tasks here require attention to detail, the work of detail is embedded in the task – in other words, it’s not a side issue such as what an entrepreneur would face. For the entrepreneur, it would be a hassle. For the engineer, it’s part and parcel of the job itself.

Hopefully, you are seeing how you might fit into one of these areas.

Illinoisians please help with advice??

Should an individual seek legal advice or representation when an employer fires the individual two weeks after the individual had their medication adjusted? The employer was aware of the adjustment made on the medication which was being taken to alleviate symptoms of ADHD and depression. One week after the individual was fired, the individual was hospitalized for severe depression. The excuse the employer gave the individual upon his/her termination was that he/she was incapable of multitasking. What are the legal options available for this individual??

Yes, as the other answer indicates, a union contract is better than being a regular “at will” employee. “At will” means that any employee can be let go for any reason, except for discrimination. Now, the Americans with Disabilities Act comes into play, though, and if your depression and/or ADHD constitute a disability ( it sounds like it probably does), then yes, you should look for legal representation. But not just any lawyer. Call the Illinois, or Chicago, or Cook County Bar Association, depending on where in Ill. you live (upstate or downstate), and ask for a lawyer who concentrates in Labor Relations and Wrongful Discharge, or maybe Civil Rights. Good luck.

attention deficit hyperactivity disorder brain

What makes a short meditation.

Today is raising awareness of Attention Hyperactivity. Deficiency disorder, or ADHD, this has lead To better understanding for children and adults had considered family or social problems.

As said earlier child ADHD generally has a hard time handling. School or adults who have a hard time on the specific application. But society has grown to understand that people will deal with serious problems that stem from the condition Of ADHD than to maintain. But most of society does not understand what causes the condition. What they understand. ADHD is a condition caused by very complex. Elements.

It is important to discuss things that do not cause ADHD prior discussion that does not cause the condition. Various legends associated. confusion abounds, and many a generation. Here you will find a list of arguments considered by the research hypothesis.

A restaurant – this assumption on the back. 70 considered the same. Diseases caused by sensitivity or allergy to some food for the majority of baby food. Although no research in the last decade proves this right cause. ADHD rumors that increase the amount of food such as sugar, are likely to stimulate the child is hyperactive and can supplement the media. The relationship between the amount of sugar and the child's behavior and learning not Model was established by clinical trials.

2 hormonal imbalance – although hormones can affect mood and behavior of each balance hormones do not cause We know that ADHD is no connection between the key now. ADHD and hormone levels. Hormones may have played while the people are not clear or the various half-baked. Time without causing symptoms of ADHD, and another More.

3 Vestibular or Balance Problems. – Research has determined that past behavior and learning problems stem from. Vestibular system of the brain that controls balance right. We offer treatment in the budget deficit. Attention Hyperactivity Disorder is the Mt. However, in the range. Years of research have not proved the relationship of the system. vestibular and ADHD are linked not found either.

4 Family and Parenting – many people. attribute poor parenting or family problems as the cause of the disease because of lack of symptoms. Attention Hyperactivity Disorder associated with behavioral problems. But parents are not up These children no less. They come from ADHD ADHD dysfunctional families as children. ADHD does not encourage parents to behave badly in school and not sit But behavior is still difficult to manage when the disciples received from parents and may appropriate more. But because they also have problems with parts of the nervous system.

5 too much TV – the popular cause of absenteeism. Hyperactivity Disorder, although the research found that television viewing TV violence can increase aggression in children. May be equivalent. Hyperactivity. And activation of the patient. ADHD but no match for such conduct. ADHD In fact, research has proven that the amount of time spent view TV shows do not differ from that of children the same age group.

People can focus on the possibilities rather than a deficit. Attention Hyperactivity. Disorders as These other factors do not participate in the making. ADHD research found that most have found that prenatal factors. Genetic and neurological factors. Not knowing what causes attention deficit. Hyperactivity Disorder to help many people understand what really caused conditions. Education is not assigned to specific. ADHD, however, additional studies mystery.

attention deficit hyperactivity disorder ontario

Why exactly do I have an IEP?

I reside in Ontario, and we call it an “IEP”. I have had one for a long time, since elementary school. I’m now in high school (grade 10). And I still have it. However, in elementary school, I actually went to the class/session everyday. I don’t do that anymore, and I also don’t have any modified work or anything. My classes are all academic, and I get very high grades. My weakest subject is English. I’m in academic English, and I’m doing very well. None of the teachers change up my work or anything. I do the same as everyone else, and I’m doing absolutely fine. I haven’t had any modified work since….about grade 7 or 6. So my question…why do I still have this? It doesn’t do anything.
I’m 16, if it helps. I also do not have any learning disabilities, and I never did.


I don’t know if this helps, but learning disabilities aren’t the only reason you need an IEP:

A child who has difficulty learning and functioning and has been identified as a special needs student is the perfect candidate for an IEP.

Kids struggling in school may qualify for support services, allowing them to be taught in a special way, for reasons such as:

learning disabilities
attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
emotional disorders
cognitive challenges
hearing impairment
visual impairment
speech or language impairment
developmental delay

What Is ADHD Disorder? Learn More About This Often Misunderstood Condition

When asking “What Is ADHD Disorder” it would be easy to give the standard response that it is a mental disorder characterized by difficulty paying attention and a high degree of restlessness and impulsive behavior that begins before the age of 7. While this is a good start in understanding what is ADHD disorder there is much more to learn. If you have a few extra minutes to walk with me through a more detailed analysis you just might find a few surprises while gaining a better understanding of ADHD. 

There are three primary symptoms of ADHD; inattention/distractibility, impulsivity, and hyperactivity/restlessness. In order for a diagnosis to be made all three symptoms do not have to be present. That said, signs of inattention must always be present for a diagnosis. Signs, must be present in two or more situations (for example family and school), must last for at least 6 months, and must interfere with social of academic functioning. 

The current numbers indicate that that the condition is either increasing in numbers or the methods of diagnosis are becoming more efficient. The current best guess estimates are that 10 percent of school aged children have the condition and 5 percent of adults. Other interesting statistics are that 20 percent of children with ADHD have learning disabilities and about 80 percent have academic problems. About 40 percent of ADHD children have issues with self esteem, depression, anxiety, or resistance to authority by the time they reach adolescence. About 60 percent of young children have such problems as temper tantrums, and most older children have low tolerance for frustration. 

As an ADHD child moves through the adolescent and the teenage years into adulthood they carry with them many of these problematic symptoms. While some symptoms such as hyperactivity morph into the less destructive restlessness other symptoms don’t improve with age. While many adults have developed strategies to deal with the symptoms, they still can come back to haunt them. The best example of this is the primary symptom of inattention that if left unchecked or untreated can negatively impact relationships, finances, and job performance. 

In asking “What Is ADHD Disorder” one cannot gain a full understanding of the condition without exploring the biological aspect at the core of the problem. The bottom line is that attention deficit disorder is a problem with self regulation that starts deep within the brain, probably in the prefrontal cortex. It is a problem of balance between the activities of the brain messenger chemicals  dopamine and norepinephrine. These chemical are responsible for bridging the gaps between synapse allowing the brain to effectively and normally communicate both thought and physical actions. When norepinephrine dominates this process a person becomes easily agitated or frustrated. When dopamine is in charge a person is stuck in the a repetitive cycle where boredom is unlikely no matter how many times the task is completed (example watching movie multiple times or eating the same foods every night). As far as that goes if enough dopamine was present you could watch the same television show and eat the same dinner every night and never get bored. 

Most prescription medications focus on this imbalance and try to find a middle ground. 

What Next? Hopefully this article has helped you better understand what is ADHD disorder and has compelled you to start looking for solutions. The most common form of treatment for ADHD are stimulant medications such as Ritalin or Cylert. While effective all stimulant medications come with a number of serious label warnings. The risk of side effects or perhaps lack of success with stimulants has prompted many to investigate other options. A couple examples of this are behavior modification therapy and/or homeopathic remedies. Homeopathic remedies for ADHD are a side effect free way to address such problematic symptoms as inattention, distractibility, impulsivity, erratic behavior and hyperactivity and can be used both as a standalone treatment or as a compliment to other nonprescription alternatives.
