Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and homeopathy


ADHD can be managed with homeopathy.blocks spelling ADHD

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is on the rise. Using parent-reported data as well as information from claims for behavior therapy and medication through employer-sponsored insurance and Medicaid, they noted an annual 3% rise in ADHD diagnoses in children from 1997 to 2006. This rate increased to an average of 5% in 2003, when 6.4 million children in the U.S. under the age of 18 were diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

Homeopathy shows promise for these children. In a study entitled “Homeopathic treatment of children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder: a randomised, double blind, placebo controlled crossover trial,” first published in the European Journal of Pediatrics in December 2005, Heiner Frei, Regula Everts, Klaus von Ammon, Franz Kaufmann, Daniel Walther, Shu-Fang Hsu-Schmitz, Marco Collenberg, Katharina Fuhrer, Ralph Hassink, Maja Steinlin, and André Thurneysen scientifically achieved behavioral and cognitive improvement with homeopathic treatment. Dr. Frei and his associates followed up with “Treatment of hyperactive children: increased efficiency through modifications of homeopathic diagnostic procedure” in July 2006 and “Randomized controlled trials of homeopathy in hyperactive children: treatment procedure leads to an unconventional study design” in January 2007.

Homeopathic remedies that are helpful in managing ADHD include
Aconite and Calcarea carb for acute fear and chronic worrying, respectively
Aranea ixabola and Baryta carbonica for disruptive or manipulative behavior
Chamomilla, Cina, and Lyssinum for aggressive behavior
Gelsemium or Silicea for less anxiety when taking tests
Hyoscyamus niger for those with poor impulse control and impudent behavior
Kali bromatum for restlessness and constant movement with cloudy mind
Stramonium for PTSD and fearfulness with aggression caused by fear

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is complex and unique to each patient. Do not attempt to self-treat your child’s symptoms or your own. Consult with your homeopath to determine exactly which homeopathic remedy matches the unique constitution of the patient.
