ADHD (Child Health) - Homeopathic Treatment
Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) affects the entire personality of an individual and calls for an in-depth constitutional approach towards its management. ADHD homeopathy medication is based on the analysis of the physical, emotional and genetic makeup of an individual and it works to bring the body’s deviated harmony back to normalcy.
ADHD homeopathy medication addresses behavioral problems in children. In a case study published by Research Homeopathy Institute, 20 Children with ADHD who received homeopathic treatment for a year had improved behavior more than children who only received conventional care. Homeopathic medicine for ADHD is administered in minute doses and is not habit forming, so one need not fear drug dependency. Another area that has to be looked into while considering treatment for ADHD in children is safety; homeopathy has no side-effects, making it a safe medium to address the issue.
Many parents are fairly distressed about the safety of over-the-counter pediatric medicines because of possible harmful ingredients. Stimulant drugs like methylphenidate may be an effective ADHD treatment, but their flip side is that they can trigger side-effects like sleeplessness, anxiety, loss of appetite, slow growth, etc. In fact, most stimulant drugs should not be given to children under the age of six because of the risk of toxicity.
In contrast, homeopathy is safe even for infant complaints such as teething and colic.
Each child suffering from ADHD has distinctive symptoms and causes. What causes a complication in one child may not cause it in another child.
ADHD homeopathy treatment takes into account the unique, characteristic temperament and presenting or latent symptoms of every child. A comprehensive history is essential to the correct choice of remedy. The more information collected, the better it is to find a tailor-made remedy.
According to a Research Gate study, the behavioral complications in children are metabolic in nature. For ADHD cure, one must first aim to correct a child’s metabolism. ADHD homeopathy medication aims to improve a child’s conduct-learning ability and promotes bowel function; this improves overall metabolic and brain function. Homeopathic medicines also help in controlling hyperactivity and improve concentration.
Another advantage is that homeopathy aims to heal the child wholly. It strives to improve the child’s overall attention and behavior. It also addresses physical afflictions like allergies, asthma, headaches and stomachaches that the child may have.
Homeopathy treatment aims to trigger healing at the root and to enable a gentle return to health.
It is essential to nurture the creative spirit, the energy, the imagination and the curiosity that these children often show and eliminate the undesirable behavior patterns. ADHD homeopathy treatment balances these characteristics so that the child can attain his or her true potential.
Studies published in the British Homeopathic Journal and The European Journal of Pediatrics report that children with ADHD, who were given homeopathic treatment or placebo, showed significantly less ADHD behavior with homeopathic remedies than those given placeboes.

How do you treat a child with ADHD?
If your child has been diagnosed with ADHD:
- Set clear expectations: Before going somewhere, talk with your child to spell out how you want him/her to behave. Put more energy into teaching your child what to do, rather than reacting to what not to do.
- Talk about ADHD: Don’t shy away from discussing ADHD with your child. Help children understand that having this disorder is not their fault and that they can determine ways to deal with the problems it causes.
- Spend some time together every day: Make time to talk and enjoy; relaxing, fun activities with your child — even if it's just for a few minutes. Give your child your full attention, compliment positive behaviors. Don't over-praise, but do acknowledge when your child does something good. For example, when your child waits for his/her turn, say, "You're taking turns so nicely."
- Your relationship with your child matters the most: Children with ADHD often feel that they're letting others down, doing things wrong or not being ‘good’. Protect your child's self-esteem by being patient, understanding and accepting. Build resilience by keeping your relationship with your child positive and loving.
What foods should be avoided with ADHD?
All children benefit from reducing the amount of sugar they eat and drink. But limiting sugar is an especially good idea for children with ADHD. According to a study published in The National Center for Biotechnology Information, children with ADHD are at an increased risk of developing type-2 diabetes later in life.
Avoiding sugary foods and sodas can help them maintain a healthy weight and reduce the risk. It’s also wise for children with ADHD to avoid caffeine. It may seem to increase their focus in the short term. But withdrawal from caffeine can make them particularly irritable. It is suggested to limit unhealthy saturated and trans-fats, rapidly digested carbohydrates and highly processed and fast food.
