ADD/ADHD

Description:

Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) are characterized by distractibility, hyperactivity, impulsive behaviors, and the inability to remain focused on tasks or activities. Individuals with ADD/ADHD tend to have difficulty with academic, emotional and social functioning. Impulsivity and inattention problems remain with up to 50% of ADD/ADHD individuals throughout adult life.

Traditional treatment of ADHD and ADD (attention deficit disorder) is through the prescription of the stimulant methylphenidate (Ritalin): its production has increased seven times in the 1990s alone, and is continually administered to younger and younger patients. Parents are beginning to question the drugs side-effects and are asking for alternative approaches to ADHD.

In recent years, acupuncture has become a popular complementary therapy for children suffering from ADHD. Auricular acupuncture, specifically, has been proven most effective. The ear may be used alone or in combination with body acupuncture to solve countless illnesses through the stimulation of specific points on the body with micro-thin needles, electricity, laser, or other devices. Since the ear may be stimulated through noninvasive procedures, it is the favored treatment for children.

Causes:

The cause of ADD/ADHD is not known. It is speculated that possible causes may include genetics, brain injury, food additives, allergies, maternal smoking, and brain dysfunction
