What is ADHD?
With prolonged use, many of the recommended prescriptions can cause mental and physical harm. Some of the side effects reported include insomnia, weight loss, heart problems, depression, and suicidal thoughts or actions.
Fortunately, a child or adult can minimise their intake of prescription drugs to lessen the side effects. Where can you go if that is not enough? It may be helpful to know that there are natural alternatives.
Studies show that there are natural remedies, and food ingredients to avoid as a way to naturally help ADHD. It’s been noted that people suffering from ADHD have tried the following to help calm their minds and bring about a calmness back into their lives.
It can also be helpful to avoid caffeine, and other stimulants after lunch so that the mind will not be energized when it’s time to go to sleep. Another suggestion, to aid in getting a night of rest, is to exercise regularly. A day filled with activities can help the mind and body to be still at night .
A warm bath, or meditation before going to bed can be a great way to relax the mind and body. Sometimes even reading a book(paper book, not on an electrical device) can help one to fall asleep.
It is unfortunate that most of our food today is composed of food dyes, artificial products, and additives. It’s best to maintain a balance diet. The intake of food additives should be limited, or avoided. It was reported that these additives can aggravate attention problems which may lead to feelings of anxiety or hyperactivity.
