Homeopathy for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and attention deficit disorder (ADD) is a condition that becomes apparent in some children in the preschool and early school years. It is hard for these children to control their behavior and/or pay attention. ADHD and ADD symptoms include hyperactivity, impulsiveness and inattentiveness.

 ADHD in adults

ADHD symptoms persist in adulthood for about 60% of children with ADHD. Adults with ADHD may have difficulty following directions, remembering information, concentrating, organizing tasks, or completing work within time limits.


Most substantiated causes appear to fall in the realm of neurobiology and genetics. This is not to say that environmental factors may not influence the severity of the disorder, but such factors do not seem to give rise to the condition by themselves.

 Signs & Symptoms

The principal characteristics of ADD and ADHD are inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. These symptoms appear early in a child’s life. When the child’s hyperactivity, distractibility, poor concentration, or impulsivity begin to affect performance in school, social relationships with other children, or behavior at home, ADHD may be suspected. But because the symptoms vary so much across settings,ADHD is not easy to diagnose. This is especially true when inattentiveness is the primary symptom.

There are three subtypes of ADHD recognized by professionals. These are thepredominantly hyperactive-impulsive type (that does not show significant inattention); the predominantly inattentive type (that does not show significant hyperactive-impulsive behavior) sometimes called ADD—an outdated term for this entire disorder; and the combined type (that displays both inattentive and hyperactive-impulsive symptoms).
