Problem: Hi Tia, I was recently diagnosed with ADHD. I am not sure about the medications. Is there natural remedies for that, that you know of?
Tip from Tia: Hi,well first off, I hope you are feeling alright. Second, I am not a doctor, so you need to talk to your doctor about other options with ADHD. Now, the information that I can give, is only to be considered as helpful opinion, not medical advice.
Recent studies have shown a belief that there is a link between ADHD and vitamin D deficiency. I would suggest, that you request a blood test on your vitamin D levels from your family doctor. If you are low, the doctor can give you a high dose, over time to balance you back out.
Also, another way you may get some relief from symptoms could be a 20 minute soak in Epsom salts, daily. ADHD, has also been believed to be linked to an overgrowth of yeast and a deficiency in magnesium. The soak; whether you do a full body or just a foot soak, will give you your daily value of magnesium. It’s been shown to balance the body. And, in the least case scenario, it will be a 20 minute relaxation time, that is beneficial to soothe your symptoms.
And, like anything linked to yeast overgrowth, watch your sugar in take. Yeast feeds off sugar and multiplies. So, if it is true ADHD is linked to yeast overgrowth, cutting out sugar will have a multitude of benefits in relieving your symptoms of ADHD.
Keep your doctor in the loop, of all that you are doing and follow his instructions, if you are on medications. In some cases, stopping medications without the doctors knowledge or instructions, could result in other problems.
