So this is the first article from ADHD Series i’m starting just for the purpose of sharing my knowledges. So basically most of us with ADHD already knows the feeling and relief you get after you use medications such Ritalin, Adderall for treatment. But very few are interested to treat ADHD naturally since it’s more time consuming and wants more organization and focus which is one the weakest points an ADHD have. But this doesn’t necessary mean that you can’t do it or you can’t treat ADHD naturally. Actually treating ADHD naturally or without medication is the safest and best method known. Especially for children this method is more preferable since medications can have side effects and can limit their growth and brain development.
Okay let’s jump straight to the point now, what do we mean by “Natural ways to treat ADHD without medication”.
Food – rule number 1.
One of the first things we should consider is Food. Also acording to Dr.Axe and through some researching we have found some of the top food we need to consume to have a better life.
