Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a chronic condition including attention difficulty, hyperactivity and impulsiveness. It often begins in childhood and can persist into adulthood. It may lead to low self esteem, hamper relationships and create difficulty at school or work.
Behavioural – Aggression, excitability, fidgeting, hyperactivity, and lack of restraint.
Cognitive – Difficulty in focusing, forgetfulness, short attention span, learning disability.
Mood – Anger, anxiety, excitement, depression.
Conventionally there is no cure for it. Treatments include medication and talk therapy. A study published by the homeopathic journal in Oct 1997 reported that children who were put on homeopathic medicines displayed significantly less ADHD behavior. No homeopathic remedy should be taken without consulting a certified homeopath.
The homeopathic medicines found most helpful for ADHD are:
- Stramonium worked well for children who had many fears or suffered symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder.
- Cina benefited children who were physically aggressive.
- Hyoscyamus Niger was found helpful in children who expressed maniac or sexualized symptoms.
