How Homeopathy Aids in Treatment of Children with ADHD

ADHD (attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder), one of the most common mental conditions that develop in children, is an impairment of social functioning in various settings. In the United States, about two million children have ADHD. If your child is one of them, you may want to consider homeopathy as a treatment method for your childs condition.

Homeopathic ADHD treatment is proven effective. In various trials, homeopathic treatments for patients with ADHD have produced positive results in lessening behavioral problems such as impulsiveness, restlessness, and inattentiveness. The other benefits of using homeopathic medicine to treat ADHD include better concentration, better performance in school, higher self-esteem, better social skills, reduced chances of fatigue, and reduced emotional and mental problems.

Traditional ADHD treatments use stimulant drugs that alter chemicals in the brain to reduce the symptoms of the mental disorder. This is a known side effect of such drugs. Homeopathic treatments work differently. Compared to stimulants, homeopathic remedies do not attempt to suppress the aspects of a childs behavior. Instead, these remedies work to level out any imbalance in the body in a natural way, of course without changing the chemicals in the brain or the body.

Another difference of homeopathic versus traditional treatments for ADHD is that the former zeroes in on not just the condition itself, but also other symptoms such as recurring colds and ear infections. In addition to that, the homeopathic ADHD treatments are tailored for every patient. One treatment may work for one patient but not for another. And if a patient is prescribed the right treatment, potency, and doses, the risk of side effects is minimal.

Derived from natural sources such as plants and animals, homeopathic medications come in the form of sweet tablets or pills that can be dissolved in the mouth. Thus, these medications are easy to administer to children with ADHD.

Planning to take your child to a homeopath for the treatment? You must first learn what to expect during your initial visit. Usually, first-time consultations take about 30 minutes to 1 hour. It really takes a bit long because the homeopath needs to come up with an accurate diagnosis and prescribe the right medication for your child. The homeopathic doctor will try to understand the specific situation of your child by asking extensive questions about your childs health history.

Also, the homeopath will ask about the immunizations, medications, and supplements that your child is taking. He will also ask additional details on your childs eating habits, fears, lifestyle, sleep, dreams, and traumas (both physical and emotional). After the interview, the homeopath will take note of physical and behavioral symptoms that he may notice such as rashes, skin color, circles under the eyes. This procedure helps in selecting accurately the homeopathic remedy for your childs condition. And when the information regarding your child has been compiled, the doctor will prescribe a remedy as well as the dosage, potency, and frequency of taking the medication.

It is necessary to strictly follow the instructions of the homeopath regarding your childs medication to avoid complications associated with homeopathy. Also, you will need to set up follow-up appointments so that the progress of your child can be checked. This will determine whether the remedy will be continued or not.
