At our center we use complementary and naturopathic medicines to treat ADHD. Many kids and adults who have trouble focusing and/or sitting still often have an imbalance in brainneurotransmitters like norepinephrine, dopamine and/or serotonin. Ritalin and Dexatrim may help, but may also have side effects like appetite and growth suppression and behavioral changes. Often dietary factors such as an excess of carbohydrates and/or a lack of protein may be playing a role. Food additives such as coloring agents, may also be a culprit. Imbalances in blood sugar as a result of skipping meals or having a poorly balanced meal, can also impair one’s ability to focus and/or cause someone to become irritable or agitated. We successfully treat ADHD by addressing dietary factors and using various vitamins and amino acids to naturally balance brain neurotransmitters.
