Have you read about the whole question of ADHD and natural medicine? Natural medicine is NOT regarded as complementary in the US whereas in the UK, it fits in more comfortably with conventional medicine and there are often medical surgeries which will embrace a whole range of treatments. In that way they can decide what is more suitable and indeed more effective. In this article I want to point out what are the advantages of ADHD and natural medicine so that you are better informed before making any decision about how to treat your child.
Why are psychostimulants the first choice for many doctors? There may be a conviction that it is actually safe and right or there may be a cavalier attitude to this mental disorder which does not take into account the fact that the whole child has to be treated and that pills cannot teach skills. Look at how ADHD is diagnosed in many doctor’s offices.
First, as regards over diagnosis, it is clear that there are far too many hasty decisions being taken and that ADHD, to be properly diagnosed, several visits are needed. How many parents have you seen coming out of a paediatrician’s office with a prescription for an amphetamine like drug in their hands, after only ONE visit?
Why ADHD and natural medicine is a perfectly valid alternative.
There are such powerful lobbies to-day that the acceptance of ADHD and natural medicine is an uphill task to say the least! But let us have a look at what it has to offer.
Natural medicine for ADHD usually means homeopathy but we could widen that definition so that it embraces a whole range of things from diet, exercise, green time, meditation, equine therapy and counselling.
I want to concentrate a little bit on homeopathy as that has been scorned by many people, unjustly, I feel. In the end,each parent has to decide what is right for his or her child.
Natural medicine for ADHD and homeopathy have been criticized because people point to the fact that clinical trials are inconclusive. But certain facts about this type of treatment cannot be denied.
The first is that there are no side effects which is certainly not the case with psychostimulants where some children may not eat or sleep properly. There are also no long term risks to health and there are no risk for cardiopatic patients or people with certain psychiatric conditions. Finally, these treatments are much more reasonably priced and best of all, there is no risk at all of addiction.
