ADHD Natural Treatment Approaches

ADHD Natural Treatment Approaches are a great way to reduce or eliminate prescription drugs that you or your child takes.  Even if your child has not been formally diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder but you suspect it, you may use these natural approaches which for the most part are just good nutrition.

State-based Prevalence Data of ADHD Diagnosis (2011-2012)- Children EVER diagnosed with ADHD

State-based Prevalence Data of ADHD Diagnosis (2011-2012): Children EVER diagnosed with ADHD – Source US CDC

ADHD at times might appear pandemic due to the ever increasing rise in diagnosis.  From the CDC infographic on the right you can see that Florida has had 11.1 – 13% of its population officially diagnosed with ADHD as of their 2012 report.  Boys are diagnosed with ADHD at a much higher rate than girls.

So from this – KNOW YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

Most ADHD persons are either auditory (listening) or  kinetic (hands on) learners.  They naturally are wired to jump in and get physically involved with their environment.  So sitting still in a classroom all day is simply against their nature.

Remember, it actually was not long ago that humans were hunters and gatherers.  It was even more recent that the average person toiled away in fields.  Modern life is actually counter-intuitive to our biology.  We are very complex beings with incredible intellectual abilities and potential, but that big brain is connected to a body that is fundamentally designed to PHYSICALLY WORK.  Sitting behind a desk all day IS NOT NATURAL for anyone let alone a young child.

Schedule your appointment to get individual Prescription Drug Counseling to review your / child’s specific ADHD needs, current medications and a natural treatment plan.

ADHD Natural Treatment Approaches

Lots of Physical Play, Limited TV / iPad and Family Engagement

Be sure your child has plenty of physical activity.  When our son seems a bit hyped up he runs laps around the back yard.  Today there is too little time spent on active play and too much time spent with tablets / iPads.  Sure some cognitive ability can be developed with games but for an active child the physical action is absolutely necessary.  When I was a child my mother had a rule we lived by.

After school or during the summer we were outside and didn’t go (weren’t allowed) back in unless we were thirsty, hungry, needed to us the bathroom or was bleeding.

We were required to use our imagination and play outside.  We were each allowed one TV show (I had two sisters so that meant we all could watch 3 shows – each could choose one).  In our home now we use internet based TV, so via HULU, our 7-year-old son watches “The Brady Bunch.”  Sure he watches other shows too, but I find the simple, non-hyper well-written stories are great lessons.  We also strive to have family game night at least twice a week where we sit and build LEGO set, play cards, Connect Four,Trouble and many activities.  We are fortunate to have some kids his age on our block and they play outside for around 2-3 hours every day after school and up to 5 hours a day on the weekends.

Nutrition

Many diseases can be avoided and often corrected by a proper healthy diet.  ADHD persons tend to be drawn to carbohydrates which spike the blood sugar levels sending their brains into a hyperactive mode.  So limit carbohydrates, specifically glutens and sugar in any form even artificial sweeteners and caffeine.

When the blood sugar drops their ability to focus is lost.  It’s like a roller coaster of brain activity cranking up and plummeting down.

Ensure the ADHD person is getting enough protein across animal, eggs legume (beans), nuts and dairy (avoiding any allergies).  Also high fiber in the form of fresh fruit and veggies.  These provide sustainable carbs and loads of vitamins and nutrients in their whole natural form.  If you’d like to save a bit be sure to check out the Lakeland Downtown Curb Market and the Auburndale Flea Market’s Produce isle.  I’ve found Sunday between 2 – 4pm at the Auburndale Market the be the lowest prices as vendors slash prices before their last hour of sale.  I find I save around 40 – 60% off product compared to local grocery stores.

Supplements

Naturally it would be ideal to obtain all the vitamins and mineral needed for optimal health and function from the foods we eat. But having kids ourselves we realize that getting kids to eat everything they should is a challenge.  This list is not an exhaustive listing of what your child should have for total health, rather it is featuring those that can play a key role in managing and reducing symptoms of ADHD.  The good news is that is is extremely difficult to overdoses on vitamins.  The typical worst side effect is very yellow urine.

1. A quality B complex is essential for optimal energy and brain function.  It should include:

  • Thiamin
  • Riboflavin
  • Niacin
  • B6
  • Folate
  • B12
  • Biotin
  • Pantothenic Acid
  • Choline (good to have)
  • PABA (good to have)

2. A quality D3 which our bodies naturally produce with exposure to the sun.  However most people do not get enough sunlight so supplementing is a good idea.  D3 is the precursor – the building block – to a large number of hormones.  Without it our body is deprived of optimal health and function.

3. A good Probiotic which will assist immunity, food break down into usable and digestible component.  This could be Kefer or yogurt or fermented foods such as sour kraut for a natural source.

4. Good sources of Omega 3 Fatty Acid.   Fish oil is better than Ritalin for ADHD, according to a study from the University of Adelaide in Australia. The omega-3 fatty acids, including DHA and EPA, within fish oil are critical for brain function and are also strong anti-inflammatories.  So we recommend:

  1. Fish Oil
  2. Flax Seed Oil

Know that Flax Seed oil supplements need to be refrigerated else it will degrade and may spoil.  Walnuts, Basil and Oregano are also source of Omega 3 Fatty Acids although small amounts but every bit helps.

5. Zinc – Children and adults with ADHD should supplement their diets with a high-quality zinc supplement. Low levels of zinc are associated with poor neurological function, poor attention and a variety of motor disorders.  Dark green leafy veggies and beans are great natural sources of Zinc.

Essential Oils

Vetiver Oil has been used in traditional medicine in South Asia, Southeast Asia and West Africa for thousands of years and is a native to India where it’s known as“oil of tranquility.”  It is the primary essential oil discussed with it come to management of ADHD back by Recent research which credits vetiver oil for treating symptoms of ADHD.  Along with other uses it’s also known to treat insomnia without drugs.

Cedar Wood Oil is likely the most ancient of all Essential Oils.  It helps to oxygenate the brain resulting in clearness of thought.  This come from the Cedar tree and is known to active the limbic region of the brain, which is responsible for balancing emotions and feelings.  It has a soothing effect, especially when diffused into the air.

To apply you may either add two drops of each to your hand and then rub on the child’s neck.  Alternatively, if you like you can make a mister by adding 30 drops of each to a small 2-ounce colored glass bottle with a mister spray top and adding filling with rubbing alcohol.  Just gently shake the bottle and provide 2 – 6 sprays on the neck, back and or chest while dressing.

Dr Catherine Onuoha - Professional Thermographer at the Natural Medicine Center of Lakeland Florida Holistic Health Care Practioner

Dr. Catherine Onuoha
PhD, RPh, BCPP, CPh

Professional Thermographer Dr. Catherine Onuoha was classically trained to appreciate Western Medical techniques at the Medical College of Virginia (MCV).  The PhD she earned at MCV is a dual discipline doctorate in Pharmacology and Toxicology.  After medical school, Dr. Onuoha pursued advanced neuroscientific training at the Walter Reed Army Institute for Research (WRAIR).

Once her WRAIR residency program completed, Dr. Catherine found work in academia to be rewarding. Onuoha held professorial posts for more than a decade, teaching within public and private institutions. Her teaching charge was to educate fledgling professionals across many medical specialties (Pharmacists, Nurses, Doctor of Orthopedics, Anesthetists, and Physician Assistants).

Throughout her academic years, Dr. Catherine dedicated some time each week to consultations with a patient base either within hospital clinics or in outpatient settings. Patient care continues to hold priority in Catherine’s work week. She is passionate about providing her patients compassionate, need-based medical care from a functional and natural healing perspective.

Although Dr. Onuoha portends professorial work is meaningful, in fact, she loved it–a wee voice of intuition began working within her during 2014. To honor and trust this intuition, Dr. Onuoha began searching clinic work environments and was resolute in her quest to devote all of her time to patient care.

In January of 2015, Dr. Catherine joined Dr. Carol Chandler at the Natural Medicine Center of Lakeland. The two Doctors formed an easy collaboration since they share a similar vision of homeopathic healthcare in accordance with Natural and Alternative Healthcare methods.

Dr. Carol Chandler and Catherine collaboratively have continued the tradition of utilizing Thermography as a powerful discovery tool to help clients far and near our community to achieve optimal health. Dr. Catherine is professionally trained to use Thermography as a unique tool to transduce physiologic changes. Catherine secondarily completed a rigorous training regimen under Dr. Carol Chandler a Doctor of Oriental Medicine and Master Herbalist. Catherine assumed responsibility for running the Natural Medicine Center’s Herbal Pharmacy.

The business collaboration has been seamless and engendered great patient feedback. Therefore, Catherine purchased MyLife Preventive Imaging and Lakeland Natural Medicine Center in April of 2015. Existing patients are rest assured that both doctors will remain available over a near-term interval. However, Dr. Carol Chandler plans to devote the majority of her time to marketing Med-Hot Infrared Imaging equipment, Dr. Catherine Onuoha meanwhile exuberantly accepts the opportunity to work with Central Florida patients at the Natural Medicine Center of Lakeland.

Peter Stoyanov, ARNP

Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP)

Peter is a board certified Family Nurse Practitioner who has been serving in the medical field for over 20 years in a variety of roles.  Peter’s early background comes from his home country of Bulgaria where he received a Master’s degree in Medicine from Thracian University and worked as a physician.  After moving to the United States, Peter furthered his education in the field of nursing and went on to receive a Bachelor’s in Nursing from Florida International University and a Master’s degree in Family Practice from the University of South Florida.  Since moving to Florida, Peter has shown his dedication and responsibility to his field and patients by serving in a number of Nurse Supervisor roles monitoring patients and nurses to ensure proper care.  Recently, Peter’s focus has been on providing direct patient care as a Nurse Practitioner as he served in both a primary care hospital and at detention facilities for juveniles and inmates.

Throughout his career, Peter has been a strong proponent for proper patient and family education as he works personally to make sure patients and their families know what is happening and why.  Peter’s foreign background and multilingual abilities make him especially adept at knowing the difficulty of communication and the importance of mutual understanding.  Peter’s other proficiencies include: wound care, diagnosis and assessment, medication prescription and monitoring, as well as an expertise in the areas of Tuberculosis, COPD, and Asthma. Peter is also working to expand his knowledge and skill set as he is currently enrolled in a program to become a certified psychiatric nurse practitioner.

Peter’s interest in functional medicine goes back to his early work as a physician in Bulgaria where he specialized in internal and preventive medicine.  While Peter’s recent experience has been in larger medical facilities, he is very eager to go back to his roots and practice holistic medicine in a more personal manner.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)

Traditional Chinese Medicine can be utilized as an alternative for patients with chronic conditions, who do not respond to western methods, or cannot use drug therapies due to sensitivities. It is particularly beneficial to those patients with pain, who cannot undergo surgery or anesthesia.

 The holistic approach of the Traditional Chinese Medicine is comprehensive, and assesses the individual patient as a “whole person”, instead of treating symptoms. The goal is to assess all contributing issues, that may affect the patient and their state of wellness, and to create a treatment plan to bring the mind, the body, and the spirit into harmony and balance once again.


Dr. Nam has also authored a number of books on acupuncture and Eastern medicine:

Thermography

Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging is a unique technology that takes a picture and creates a map of the infrared patterns of the body. It is different than other screening tools because it helps us to see function (physiology).

Acupuncture

Growing numbers have sought out acupuncturists for chronic health problems — when conventional medicine either hasn't worked nor has answers. An estimated 12 million American adults have used acupuncture.

Massage Therapy

Relieves pain and tension created by strained and contracted muscles. Reduces chronic stress and tension. Increases flexibility in joints, aiding in easier mobility and movement

Natural Medicine Acknowledges that You are Unique.

Unlike many health models, the model for Natural Medicine sometimes referred to as Alternative Medicine is one of individualization.  No two people are alike, so just because two people suffer from headaches, the natural homeopathic remedies provided for them may be completely different.  Each person has a different  lifestyle, diet, environment and other contributing factors that require a personally unique approach.

Some general benefits to natural homeopathy are:

  • It can be used by pregnant and nursing women
  • It does not interfere with medications taken by a person
  • If an incorrect remedy is selected, it is completely safe and will not harm the person at all
  • There are no or mild short lived side-effects of homeopathic remedies
  • It can be used for chronic or acute conditions
  • It is an individualized system of medicine which treats the person, not merely the symptoms
  • Homeopathy is a holistic approach to healing:  one that involves the body, mind, emotions, and spirit of the person being treated
  • Homeopathic medicine is non-invasive
  • There are many studies proving the effectiveness of homeopathy, when used correctly
