People with ADD/ADHD and other challenging behaviour manifest their distress differently depending on their unique constitutions. Many are over-stimulated, distracted and restless. Others become on guard, withdrawn and compulsive. Others act out, become disruptive or aggressive. Many have trouble with self-esteem in their struggle to function. All these various presentations might be labeled as ADD/ADHD, despite the diversity. The conventional approach is to boil the problem down into a single diagnosis, which then is typically treated by a single class of drugs.
Homoeopathic treatment however respects and takes advantage of the diversity of people with ADD/ADHD symptoms. It is an approach that stimulates the unique adaptive mechanisms each person carries within. Homoeopathy is a system of medicine that sees every person as an individual and can help people move towards optimal health.
Treating these patients has become as extremely rewarding aspect of my practice. In cases where either or both parents have ADD/ADHD, the family will benefit most if each family member is treated. For the best result treatment can take up to one year, with consultations not more than once every 2-3 months.
Homeopathic medicine is a safe, effective and natural treatment for ADD/ADHD and is an approach that may be entirely new to you and your family.
