I get asked all the time by loved ones and friends if there are any natural herbal remedies out there for treating ADHD. The answer to the question is yes there are several natural herbal remedies out there that can be used that are safer and more effective than prescription drugs being used today. However, some of the herbal remedies I am about to mention should be taken with care and disgusted with your doctor before trying them to treat your ADHD.
Now for those of you who do not know what ADHD is it is a attention deficit hyperactivity disorder that people of all ages can have. ADHD causes a person to do things in an impulsive way without thinking first. It also causes inattention and a very hyperactive mind and behavior. It is also known to cause poor concentration and a lack of socializing skills. Other times it can causes anxious feelings, panic attacks, and can make depression worse. Sometimes it can cause a lack of memory and can cause someone to forget where they placed an object that is important to them. There is no real way to figure out what actually causes ADHD and most of the time people suffering from this disorder are prescribed medicines such as Dopamine, Dexedrine, Adderall, and Ritalin. These medicines can cause several serious side effect and are not always the best medicines for treating ADHD which is why I am about to tell you what natural herbal remedies you can use to help treat your ADHD.
One of the best herbal remedies I believe works well for ADHD sufferers is American Ginseng Root. American Ginseng Root has adaptogen in it which helps the body handle all kinds of stressful situations effecting the body and mind. It also contains ginsenosides which helps the body handle stress better. When your body and mind can handle stresses better the brain can concentrate and remember things a lot better such as where you placed that lost object. American ginseng root’s compounds can even help the mind stay alert and positive so it doesn’t wonder off into no man’s land.
Another herbal remedy that is excellent for treating ADHD is chamomile tea. Chamomile tea is very soothing to sip on as well as breathing in the sweet soothing aroma from it. Chamomile is a mild sedative and helps relax the mind, body, and nervous system right down. It can ease stress, anxiety, panic attacks, and depression. It can help refocus the mind and relieve tension and aggravation. The tea can be taken before bedtime to help calm and clear the mind so ADHD sufferers can fall asleep easier and comfortably. Chamomile tea is excellent to sip on when ADHD sufferers are suffering from compulsive thoughts and behaviors to help them calm down and think before they act.
Ginkgo Biloba is another herbal remedy that can be used for treating ADHD because it contain powerful antioxidants in it that help keep the oxygen flowing freely to the nerves and brain wiping out any free radical cells that could cause memory loss. These antioxidants also help treat and relieve panic and anxiety attacks, impulsive actions, nervousness as well as depression. Ginkgo Biloba can also help keep someone in a positive mood so when stressful situations do occur you have the attention span and ability to handle them better with your ADHD.
Radix Heraclei is another known herbal remedy to help treat ADHD sufferes because it contains antioxidants in it that helps calm the nerves that cause stress and tension. It also helps oxygen and blood flow freer so your brain stays healthy and strong so it can think clear, better, and faster.
