Are you worried about your child’s hyperactivity? Is your child constantly moving around, is he too fidgety? Does he constantly move his legs and arms? Does he have difficulty in waiting for his turn while playing with other kids? Is he having concentration issues while studying –gets easily distracted? If so then there are chances that your child could be having Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder commonly called as ADHD.
Recent researches have proven great beneficial role of Natural
homeopathic medicines in treating such hyperactivity in children. The greatest benefit
that homeopathy offers while treating Adhd is that its medicines are very safe for kids
and do not slow down their other activities . Neither are they addictive; this means that
once the treatment is over, the medicines can be safely withdrawn.
Hyperactive disorder in kids can be divided into usually three kinds
a) hyperactive – impulsive behavior, where the kids are physically hyperactive and have less impulse control.
B) Inattentive type – where they have difficulty in sustaining attention while studying, playing and doing other activities.
C) combined type – here they have both the physical hyperactivity as well as the low attention span.
Hyperactive –Impulsive type is marked by symptoms of constant Fidgety behavior or moving and squirming frequently. The child has difficulty in remaining in his seat and often leaves seat suddenly during class and can wander away outside the classroom. Running and climbing can be very excessive. The child always seems to be on the go. Excessive talking can be another symptom of Adhd. Blurts out answers even before the question is finished. The child may have difficulty in waiting for his turn while playing. In the Inattentive type the symptoms are- the child often makes careless mistakes in schoolwork, homework and other activities. Sustaining attention while studying, playing or other activities is very difficult. Instruction following is very difficult for the child. He may seem to be’ too absorbed’ in his activity while being spoken too. The child may often avoid activities that require prolonged or sustained mental effort.
What exactly causes Adhd id still unknown; but there are certain factors which tend to contribute either to the development or modification of Adhd behavior. These factors are altered brain function and anatomy , genetic factors , maternal smoking and drug use in pregnancy, childhood exposure to toxins such as lead and food additives such as artificial coloring or food preservatives.
Homeopathy treats the person as a whole. It means that homeopathic treatment focuses on the patient as a person, as well as his pathological condition. The homeopathic medicines are selected after a full individualizing examination and case-analysis, which includes the medical history of the patient, physical and mental constitution etc. A miasmatic tendency (predisposition/susceptibility) is also often taken into account for the treatment of chronic conditions
Unlike conventional medicine, homeopathy seeks to treat each child as an individual The remedy must reflect everything about the child. A detailed history is fundamental to the correct choice of remedy. The homeopath will ask about the health of the child and the family, the pregnancy and delivery, early development, vaccinations, life events, schooling, favourite foods, drinks to mention just a few points. The more information gathered, the easier it is to find that tailor-made remedy. Homeopathy considers every factor, from the genetic component to specific possible causes. The aim of treatment is to stimulate healing at the deepest level, and to allow a gentle return to health. Ritalin and related drugs act by suppressing the symptoms. One common complaint is that the children feel and act doped-up, and they lose the good side of their hyperactivity. There is a positive side, which we aim to retain with homeopathy. It is as important to nurture the creative spirit, the imagination, the energy, and the curiosity that these children often show as it is to remove the unacceptable behaviour patterns. So many of these children have wonderful gifts. Homeopathic treatment balances these qualities, so that the child can fulfil his or her true potential.
