ADD/ADHD

Introduction

ADHD is characterized by attention difficulties and hyperactivity while ADD is characterized by attention difficulties and inattentiveness. Both ADD/ADHD are common among children but can also be present in adults and may cause .

Children with ADD/ADHD may have behavioral issues and poor grades in school, while adults may be forgetful and have difficulty keeping responsibilities organized. The root cause of such symptoms can vary greatly, and it is important to determine this cause in order to develop an appropriate treatment plan.

It now understood that chronic inflammation or infection is commonly found in individuals with attention and hyperactivity issues. Chronic inflammation affects moods by alternating brain and hormone chemistries. Root causes of inflammation (infections, allergies, or hypersensitivities) should be investigated as part of your healthcare practitioner's standard evaluation.

A New Scientific Approach to Attention and Hyperactivity Issues

Evaluation of neurotransmitters can be useful in determining the cause of these behavioral issues, as well as help to develop a treatment plan to address symptoms and the particular imbalances revealed by testing. In many cases symptoms such as these may be accompanied by a high level of excitatory neurotransmitters; symptom resolution is often achieved by addressing these imbalances with calming support.

Root causes of inflammation (infections, allergies, or hypersensitivities) should also be investigated; for example, food sensitivities are a common cause of attention and hyperactivity issues in children.
