Frequently Asked Questions
ADHD is a subjective psychiatric label. There is no test to prove someone has it. A Check List is used to make the diagnosis. That's why I prefer to find the underlying medical or educational causes of the symptoms. This way, you avoid a psych label and a psych drug which come with a host of serious and life-threatening side effects.
There are remedies for the actual causes of the symptoms called ADHD. Diet changes, nutritional supplements and correcting the learning problems can go a long way to correct the symptoms
Because ADHD is a subjective, psychiatric disorder, I do not consider it a real diagnosis. People who manifest the symptoms that are called ADHS often have trouble with focus and concentration and sometimes with reading, listening and good behavior.
Conditions that actually cause the symptoms called ADHD include a diet high in carbohydrates, lack of more pro nutritional support, learning problems, allergies and other medical conditions like anemia or Hypothyroidism.
By finding the cause and fixing of the lack of focus, a child can easily focus.
Children do not outgrow ADHD. It is not something to outgrow. Some symptoms will change with age and manifetg differently, but the basic problem is still there.
