Adhd holistic treatment

Common Questions and Answers about Adhd holistic treatment


Avatar f tn A month clean...that's great! I saw the title of this "Holistic Treatment" and had to see what it was about...I'm always looking for new treatments myself as I'm big on the holistic stuff. I'm taking a Turmeric based supplement myself (Bio-Curcumin Phytosome) for my arthritis. I don't have RA but I do have PA (Psoriatic Arthritis) which is another autoimmune disorder. Hopefully mine isn't permanent as it was triggered by the interferon injections I also take.

Avatar f tn sell a course. I enrolled in medicaid, but have suffered from ADHD since birth. I have tried a holistic approach in my diet, life habits and petition God in prayer as well as different medications from time to time. I am very healthy except for this disorder, but was seeing a doctor for medication, Strattera when I went on medicaid. Does medicaid cover Stratterra, Vyvanse or Concerta and other ADHD or ADD medications?
Avatar f tn Try giving your son's Vitamin B6 and Omega 3-6-9 Vitamins . They have helped my son. The other thing I would do is take your son who has and is on Adderall to see a neurologist to make sure everything is OK with his brain .A lot of children who have been told they have add or adhd and even both add and adh are misdiagnosed because doctors ,teacher,parents don't think about having the children brains check for other things like Seizures.

Avatar n tn Adults can be diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) as well. Sometimes this is a result of the person’s childhood ADHD progressing into adulthood (up to 70 percent of children will continue to struggle with ADHD as adults). Other times, an adult can either simply never been diagnosed as a child, or develop the disorder later on in life. Adult attention deficit disorder looks a lot like childhood attention deficit disorder.
Avatar n tn There is no holistic treatment for the kind of sedation that you would get from anesthesia drugs, but there are Acupuncture calming points, herbal remedies that relieve nervousness or anxiety, which I guess could be classified as mild sedation. In other words I would not perform surgery with a cat just under herbal sedation or acupuncture.
Avatar f tn t help but wonder, since she has gone downhill so fast, could it be something else, not ADHD? We are looking into seeing a psychologist who treats ADHD patients. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! We are so scared for our granddaughter and want to help however we can.
Avatar f tn My 9 year old black lab may have another UTI. I have no funds to take her in to get checked but i whole-heartedly believe in holistic healing. Anyone know of something natural for uti's? Her main symptom is accidents where she's been. She's an inside dog and thus its easy to keep track of where she's been, I just have to follow the puddloes.

Avatar n tn Are there any other modalities that would benifit the child? Do you suggest any herbs? What is the best form of treatment? (ie. conventional, holistic, etc...) Thanks, Polly = Dear Polly, At present our knowledge of treatment for NF-1(neurofibromatosis type one) is limited at present to surgical removal of neurofibromas for cosmetic reasons or for neuroplexiform lesions compressing on nerves within the body causing such symptons as pain and weakness. At the CCF, Dr. B.
Avatar f tn Are second opinions needed or is there a protocol that is followed and if so what physician/treatment center in the country has the most success with management for this.
Avatar n tn While some physicians diagnosis on the basis of a quick interview, and some use symptom checklists, the most responsible way to determine if a child has ADHD is to refer him for psychological or neuropsychological assessment. ADHD is frequently diagnosed by the presence of symptoms, yet it is important to note that symptoms such as impulsivity or forgetfulness can also be caused by anxiety, depression, or other factors.
Avatar f tn The trouble with the ADHD meds is that everyone is different. Sometimes it takes a bit of trial and error to get it right. Good communication with your doctor is important. And if your doctor is a pediatrician - well, they don't always have the training to make the right choices. Anyway to answer your question. Personally, I don't think that homeopathy will help very much if they already have a good diet and are not allergic to any foods.
Avatar m tn Thought it was acne but the culture showed otherwise. She cannot take antibiotics well. Is there a holistic topical treatment that will help?
Avatar n tn Is there treatment For Eating Disorders other than Impatient Hospitals? My family thinks that I have Anorexia. I have a histroy of mental health problems, including; PTSD, Major Depressive Disorder, and ADHD.
793908 tn?1294705109 I know that you are opposed to any more veterinary visits but your dog’s case is quite complicated and it does not sound like you have gone to a holistic vet yet. At my practice the first holistic visit costs under $200 dollars, includes an acupuncture treatment and would get your dog on the correct Chinese and Western herbal formula and set up a complete holistic protocol. The only additional cost would be for the herbal formula’s, and these could be purchased by you personally online.
Avatar f tn Hi, I don't know anything about holistic treatment but I can tell you that if you do have AIH your doctor should send you to a hepatologist or gastro doctor. That way you can go on treatment for this & if necessary have a biopsy done to see what kind of damage if any to your liver. I don't understand why you weren't referred immediately to a specialist if your doctor thinks this to be true.
Avatar f tn Hi, I am looking for holistic alternatives to regular treatment. We tried everything vet suggested. So far the last step is biopsy and we don't want to do that. Cat has the problem for about 2 month. She has constant diarrhea few times a day. She stopped using the litter box. She used to go on the carpet, but when we restricted access, now she goes anywhere but the litter box. We did all the tests; parasites, x-ray & blood. All the tests are fine.
Avatar n tn There is a risk in prescribing psychostimulant medication to treat ADHD in a child who displays TD. The risk is that the treatment for the ADHD will worsen the involuntary muscle movements (tics). However, a non-stimulant treatment for ADHD, such as Strattera (atomoxetine), may benefit your son. So there are options and you can discuss these with your prescribing doctor.
Avatar f tn Honestly, the fact that he is so jealous of his sister to the point of trying to seriously hurt her (or drown her even!) is pretty serious. I don't want this to come out the wrong way, but with the sleep apnea and so forth it does sound like ADHD or some sort of imbalance is going on. I don't know if you know much about Holistic Doctors or anything, but my favorite one is also a pretty famous one in California by the name of Dr. Mercola.
Avatar m tn Risperidone is not a treatment for ADHD. It is an atypical anipsychotic that is used to treat Psychotic Disorders and Bipolar Disorder. Intuniv can be used to treat ADHD, though it is not usually chosen as a 'front line' (i.e., first choice) medication to treat ADHD. The implication of what you describe is that your son, if he does display ADHD, has another condition alongside the ADHD. Weight gain is a common side effect of treatment with Risperidone.
Dinosaur I can not verify the effectiveness of a holistic/natural treatment. In most cases, holistic treatments offer only a minimal effect. Are you trying to lose weight? What are you taking this product for?
