ADHD, sometimes known as ADD, is the diagnosis given to children, adolescence or adults who generally seem to have:
- Difficulty staying focused or concentrating
- Easily Distracted
- Difficulty controlling behavior (hyperactivity)
- Always moving - fingers, hands, arms, feet or legs
- Difficulty paying attention
- Impulsive behavior
They may also:
- Struggle with low self-esteem
- Have troubled relationships
- Exhibit poor school performance
This disorder affects millions of children and sometimes will continue into adulthood.
First Things First
Begin by making nutritional and lifestyle changes. Rule out environmental factors by reducing your child's exposure to substances that are increasingly common but potentially detrimental:
Remove food dyes, preservatives and additives from the diet.
Focus on natural, organic foods grown without pesticides or herbicides.
Determine if an allergy involved such as dairy or gluten and eliminate.
Eliminate artificial sweeteners.
Reduce the use of cleaning agents, detergents, fabric softeners and other chemicals.
These are wise choices whether your child has the symptoms associated with ADHD or not!
The most common treatment in the medical profession is drugging the child with the Class 2 psychotropic drug methylphenidate, more commonly known as Ritalin®.
Ritalin® is a schedule II controlled substance related to, and producing similar effects as, cocaine and other amphetamines. The side effects, including personality changes and permanent changes to the brain, cause many parents to look for alternatives. More and more are wisely turning to chiropractic.
Chiropractic: Pure and Natural
Hyperactivity is not the result of a Ritalin® shortage in your child's body! So why is it that this is the first thing medical doctors use to treat the symptoms. Instead, we look for disturbances to the child’s nervous system. The nervous system is the part of the body which controls all your actions. We almost always find problems caused by spinal distortions in the upper neck. This link between the spine, brain stem dysfunction and ADHD is common. A thorough chiropractic examination can reveal noticeable spinal distortion. This distortion can often be resolved through chiropractic care which will reduce nervous system tension.

Are You Looking for Help with ADHD
If so, that is exactly what I am here to offer - help. I have been working with ADD/ADHD patients for 20 years and have had great success in patients who are both children and adults. I believe our success has been so good because we treat every patient individually.
After going over a thorough history, we will administer 2 computerized examinations. The results of these tests will give us a great insight into reasons why the patient is experiencing the ADD/ADHD symptoms.
The treatments we offer are very different from mainstream treatment. I don't use or prescribe any potentially harmful drugs that artificially alter the way the body or brain works. The benefit of this approach is that you don't have to deal with the potentially scary side effects of those drugs.
Your body was designed to be self healing. When something goes wrong, the body should fix it so it can start working correctly. When someone has the symptoms of ADD/ADHD; almost always the system that controls the self-healing part of your body has a problem, and the body is not able to respond the way it should so it is not functioning properly.
Take what happened to Taylor last year (Not his real name for legal reasons)
Taylor was "diagnosed" with ADHD by his grade school teacher. The teacher had a conference with Taylor's mom and suggested Taylor see an MD to get a prescription for an ADHD drug. Taylor's aunt just happens to be my patient and when she heard what Taylor's mom was going to do, she brought both of them in to see me. We did some testing on Taylor and the tests showed he needed help. I decided he would be a good candidate for treatment here so he started care.
After 4 weeks, the teacher reached out to his mother and said that she was happy Taylor was on a prescription because his attitude was so much better and the reason for the call was that she was wondering why a mid-day dose of the drug at school was not needed like the other students who were on that type of drug.
Taylor's mom was happy to report to her that she had decided not to put Taylor on any medications at all but that he was under the care of my office. The teacher didn't know what to say.
The interesting thing was that Taylor had also been having problems with ear infections since he was an infant. He was on some type of antibiotic about once every 3-4 months. Since he started care in this office 6 months ago, Taylor hasn't had a single sore ear.
