Many people with ADHD have trouble learning new things. They tend to forget easily and have trouble paying attention. ADHD can make it difficult for someone to study and learn in a classroom setting. There are many medicines out there that can treat ADHD, but do you really want your kid taking those drugs? I wouldn’t.
I am a firm believer that you should always seek nature first. If there is a man made medicine for it, nature also has something that will cure it. Plus, home remedies are much cheaper. I will talk about some things you can do right in your own home to treat ADHD and improve your child’s learning.
Before I get into home remedies for ADHD, I want to say that you should limit your child’s sugar intake. Sugar will keep the brain from responding to norephinephrine. In other words, sugar makes ADHD worse. Read the labels on the foods and keep track of how much sugar your child is getting.
The following herbal remedies for ADHD have been known to balance the chemicals in the brain. Using these herbs is much better than using medications, which aren’t very good for you.
Ginkgo Biloba can help with ADHD. It’s great for ADHD because it increases blood flow to your brain. It helps to improve memory and concentration. Ginkgo biloba can be found in most drug stores that carry supplements.
Skullcap promotes a healthy nervous system. Since someone with ADHD has an imbalanced nervous system, skullcap is very helpful in restoring balance back. This in turn will combat ADHD.
Another herbal remedy to use is chamomile. Chamomile is a calming herb that can help calm down the nervous system. The rapid thinking often involved with people who have ADHD will be quieted from the use of chamomile.
Lemon balm is a mild sedative. It helps calm the nervous system and at the same time can make someone actually feel happy or positive. This is much unlike the ADHD medications out there which promote depression in children.
Hawthorne is also great to use because of how it increases blood flow. This is important in improved functioning of the brain.
Rooibos is great to use because not only does it contain many antioxidants, but it is great for a healthy nervous system.
Valerian is a mild sedative. This is useful for people with ADHD because it helps calm you down so that you can focus. Do not use if you are pregnant or nursing.
Avena helps restore the nervous system. It can also help restore balance to hormones.
Gotu Kola improves concentration. It also helps you remember things better.
You have your herbs to calm down, herbs for improving the brain functioning, and herbs to help with concentration and memory. I recommend to try these or try a supplement that includes all of these as ingredients.
