Unfortunately, we are in the day and age where more people, usually children, are being diagnosed with ADHD. Let’s talk about natural remedies for ADHD.
ADHD stands for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. With the ever rising diagnoses comes more medication prescriptions. According to the CDC, 11% of children were diagnosed with ADHD in 2011. From 2003 to 2011 there was a 5% increase in diagnoses each year.
Rightfully, many parents are concerned with putting their children on meds. Especially since the main prescription, Ritalin, has some worrisome side effects. Some of the less serious side effects include stomach pain, nausea, dizziness, headache, sweating, mild rash, feeling nervous, insomnia, and weight loss. Some of the more serious side effects are fast heartbeat, feeling like you are about to pass out, fever, sore throat, headaches, aggressiveness, hallucinations, easy bruising, and dangerously high blood pressure.
