How Can I Treat My Child With ADHD?
ADHD with Autism is a growing problem and is believed to affect one in every fifty children. ADHD is usually diagnosed when a child reaches the age of four or five but can be detected earlier by the parents when a child is between the ages of two and three or four and five.
Children who have been diagnosed with ADHD usually experience difficulty with concentration, hyperactivity and distractibility. They also may suffer from an inability to focus, irritability, distractibility, insomnia and a lack of impulse control. Their impulsivity may also be much greater than normal.
Most parents who deal with children with ADHD will find that the disorder is often the result of genetics and there is some evidence to suggest that it could be caused by having either a parent or sibling with ADHD. However, recent studies have suggested that there may be a link between ADHD and Autism. Although there is no definite proof, it has been suggested that children who are diagnosed with ADHD are more likely to also have Autism.
The main cause of ADHD is thought to be that the brain does not respond to certain chemicals in the brain when a child is anxious or fearful. When this happens, the brain stops sending these chemicals to the areas of the brain responsible for the symptoms of ADHD. It is thought that this is why so many children who have ADHD experience a wide range of symptoms including hyperactivity and impulsive behavior. However, other children may only show a milder version of these symptoms.
It is believed that children with Autism will have difficulties with concentration and attention and many times this can lead to the child being unable to concentrate and stay on task when they are under stressful situations. If your child experiences ADHD symptoms then try to identify the cause for your child’s behavior. There are many causes of ADHD including diet, medication, stress, and changes in the child’s environment. Some researchers believe that it may be possible to treat ADHD using natural methods that you can learn.
Some children do seem to benefit from using a combination of ADHD medication and homeopathic remedies. However, many of the treatments can actually make the symptoms worse. A homeopathic remedy such as Vicks vaporub can help to calm the child and reduce their symptoms.
Many of the side effects of ADHD medication can be treated with homeopathic remedies as well. Many children who are able to use a homeopathic remedy will have fewer side effects. There are homeopathic remedies for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, which include Vicks vaporub, Arsenicum Album and Tuberculinum.
When ADHD with Autism is diagnosed, it is important to speak to your doctor to make sure that a natural treatment will be suitable. A specialist in ADHD can advise you on the best course of action.
If you have tried homeopathic remedies and still experience problems with your child, it is important to speak to your doctor about other options. Although ADHD with Autism can be treated with homeopathic remedies, many children find that the medications have not worked for them and the symptoms are just too severe. They may need to change to an alternate form of treatment.
