How does chiropractic help with ADD/ADHD???

An excerpt from American Chiropractic Association -

"Helping Children with Attention Deficit Disorder"

In the past decade, prescriptions for Ritalin, a stimulant medication commonly used for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), increased five-fold, with 90 percent of all prescriptions worldwide consumed in the United States. As many parents grow leery of the traditional medical approach to ADHD, doctors of chiropractic are offering promising results with non-drug treatments that focus on postural muscles, nutrition and lifestyle changes that affect brain activity. 

While chiropractic neurologists have found success in treating ADHD and learning disabilities by providing the necessary brain stimulation, they also recommend nutrition and lifestyle changes that may help correct or prevent biochemical imbalances that cause ADHD. Parents are encouraged to:

  • Remove as many food dyes, sugar, preservatives, and additives from the diet as possible.
  • Focus on natural, mostly organic foods with as few pesticides or herbicides as possible.
  • Determine if there is an allergy—usually starting with dairy and gluten and try elimination diets.
  • Stop using pesticide sprays in the house.
  • Avoid taking medications, nicotine, alcohol, and other drugs in pregnancy that may harm the fetus.
  • Find ways to relax during pregnancy. Stress on the job may affect the unborn baby's health, as well.
  • Breastfeed. The first months and years of a child's life are critical to physical and psychological development. Breastfeeding mothers' diets are important as well.

Chiropractic Care Can Help...
If you or your loved one is diagnosed with ADHD or has the symptoms, ask your doctor of chiropractic if he or she has experience treating patients with the condition. Doctors of chiropractic are trained to identify neurological problems and find individual non-invasive treatment modalities. They can also assess your nutritional status and help you find the diet that will help you manage your condition.

"Chemical Lobotomies: A growing number of children are being prescribed antipsychotics for ADHD"

 

There are reasons that the numbers of antipsychotics prescribed for children with behavioral disorders is skyrocketing. The drugs show drastic improvement in the hyperactivity, irritability, and defiance associated with ADHD. The reason for this seeming improvement is the fact that these atypical antipsychotics act on the frontal lobe of the brain-the area lobotomies effect. Dr. Peter Breggin, who publicly decries the use of antipsychotics in children, has this to say:

"We have a national catastrophe. This is a situation where we have ruined the brains of millions of children...These are lobotomizing drugs. Of course, they will reduce all behavior, including irritability."
