Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder or ADHD
ADHD is one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders of childhood. Children with ADHD may have trouble paying attention or be overly active. Another issue is controlling impulsive behaviors. This means the child may act without thinking about the result of their actions.
Treatment includes medications and/or behavior therapy. Approximately 6.2 million children have an ADHD diagnosis. Of these diagnoses about 30% were treated with medication alone, about 15% received behavioral treatment alone, about 32% received both medication treatment and behavioral therapy, and approximately 23% were receiving neither medication nor behavioral treatment.
At our office, we offer a third alternative treatment through structure-function care. Utilizing thorough diagnostic labs and examination we look for underlying conditions that may contribute to ADHD behaviors. This includes food intolerances, heavy metal toxins, endocrine imbalances, and/or nutritional deficiencies. We then find safe natural means of correcting what could be an underlying cause in the behavior.
