and Attention Deficit Disorder -
Attention deficit disorder (ADD) and attention deficit hyperactive
disorder (ADHD) can severely disrupt a child's education and socialization
process, incurring life-long effects if not properly diagnosed and
treated. Increasingly, there is a tendency to prescribe stimulant
medications, such as Ritalin (methylphenidate), to treat these types
While prescription drugs may sometimes be necessary
for treatment of extreme cases, recently there have been reports
of an epidemic of hasty misdiagnoses and over prescription. In fact,
the rate of methylphenidate prescriptions for children in the U.S.
has jumped three to six times in the last decade alone. In some
locales, as many as 8-10% of elementary public school children take
prescription drugs for ADHD symptoms.1
can sometimes provide a quick, temporary solution to hyperactivity
and attention deficit-related problems, it's important to remember
that pharmaceuticals simply treat symptoms of attention deficit
disorders--not causes. When medication is stopped, symptoms may
promptly return, setting the stage for possible lifelong dependence
on prescription drugs.
The following Neurotransmitter tests can be used to detect
possible causes and contributing factors linked to hyperactive behavior
in children, and can provide the basis for natural, drug-free alternative
methods of treatment with Amino Acids. Click on the following Neurotransmitter tests for more information: HPA Profile by Neuro Labs
and Allergies: Identifying and treating food allergies has proven to be an extremely
powerful tool in helping hyperactive children.
and Element Imbalances: Toxic exposure and nutrient imbalances can have a profound effect
on the developing nervous systems of children.
and Fatty Acids: Studies show fatty acid deficiencies
rampant among children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
and Amino Acids: Amino acids are the body's building blocks for important chemical
relaxants in the brain.
