As we continue to research and learn more about ADD/ADHD and its possible causes and means of treatment, increasing numbers of parents and health-care providers are using natural alternatives to treat ADHD.
Part of this trend is certainly developments that have taken place in the field of natural treatments – from diet considerations, to art therapy, to behavioral and cognitive treatment methods – this is a growing field.
Of course, it’s important to look for treatments that are reputable and have evidence proving their effectiveness. On the other hand – as we learn more about this disorder, the possibilities are indeed growing. It is important to remember that each child or adult with ADD/ADHD is an individual with their unique strengths and needs, and that there there is no one formula that works for everyone.
