ADHD Treatment – A Natural response
ADHD treatment using Omega-3 and these six vitamins and minerals…
Has your child’s teacher been swaying you to medicate him or her because they’re ‘hyperactive’?
Or, perhaps you’re affected by ADHD. It’s more common in adults than you may think. About 5% of adults have ADHD. And, if you were hyperactive as a child, chances are you could still be battling those troubling symptoms. Studies have found that 60% of adults don’t outgrow their ADHD. Sadly, many adults have never been diagnosed because the problem wasn’t picked up when they were children. If you experience these symptoms, your suspicion that you may have ADHD may be spot-on. ADHD treatment can be approached from a healthier and natural angle.

ADHD is a problem related to nutritional deficiencies…
Nutritionists have noted for years that the modern diet is significantly deficient in omega-3 fatty acids.
A study published way back in 2006 concluded that, “Lower levels of long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids, particularly omega-3 fatty acids, in blood have repeatedly been associated with a variety of behavioural disorders including attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).”
It is also a well-known fact that, through over-farming and the use of pesticides and other chemicals, the modern diet is also deficient in most common vitamins and minerals, in the quantities the body needs to function optimally.
And if the body isn’t getting the resources it needs, or enough of them, it’s obvious that we need to increase those that are deficient to see and experience an improvement.
Increase the following nutrients in your diet over a prolonged period and you could be surprised to feel your ADHD symptoms lifting and your ADHD treatment becoming a more natural process.
Omega-3: This essential fatty acid has been extensively studied in relation to ADHD. Foods rich in this healthy fat include chia seeds, salmon, sardines, hemp seed oil and flaxseed.
Probiotics: There is a close link between gut health and mental health. Restore the flora in your gut with a good-quality daily probiotic.
Vitamin B: Take a good vitamin B complex. In particular, vitamin B6 is important for the production of serotonin, and vitamin B12 helps to regenerate neurons and the myelin protective sheath.
Magnesium: About 80% of people are deficient in magnesium. It helps with anxiety. Food sources include beans, avocados, bananas, nuts and leafy greens.
Vitamin D: This sunshine vitamin is an essential all-rounder. Sun exposure – without sunscreen, egg yolks, live and dairy are good sources.
Zinc: Helps with concentration and mood. Food sources include beef, lamb, spinach and pumpkin seeds are great sources of this mineral.
You can also take a good quality multivitamin with decent doses of each vitamin and mineral alongside omega-3 to make sure you’re getting enough of these essential nutrients to help lift ADHD.
