ADHD Patient

in Adhd

When most people think of who could be a ADHD patient candidate the image of a overly active child that terrorizes both friend, family, and teachers daily is generally the image that comes to mind. While the image of little Johnny putting gum in Sara hair as he constantly fidgets and asks to go to the bathroom on his way to some of the lowest grades in the class is not always the case. In reality the ADHD patient could be almost anyone from the little girl who constantly talks, to little Johnny's dad who is totally disorganized or the class clown who's impulsive behavior keeps everyone laughing. In this article titled "The ADHD Patient" we will briefly explore attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and review what is thought to be the primary cause.
 
Probably the most stunning number out of all the statistics is that eight out of every ten children diagnosed with ADHD underachieve academically while only 20% have any type of learning disability. Generally a child with this condition has an intelligence level that is as good as or greater than their piers but their skill set is different. ADHD children tend to do well when there is a visual component involved and may really struggle with reading assignments that take a great deal of time and concentration.
 
Isn't it ironic that a condition of an individual being a square peg in a round hole is classified as by the American Medical Association as mental illness. Research shows that attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is not caused by family turmoil, poor parenting, or excessive television. It is in fact caused by biological factors that affect brain activity, specifically chemical activity. Recent research utilizing the most advanced brain activity technology shows a link between an individual's ability to pay attention and brain activity. For the ADHD patient, the areas of the brain that cause focus, concentration, and impulsive behavior are less active than people without the condition.
 
In summary, the ADHD patient is not that much different from their piers in many ways but in other ways they are light-years apart. Taking this into account has prompted many parents and individuals alike to seek treatment. As with most complicated conditions there are many different treatment options (both prescription and non-prescription) including homeopathy. Homeopathic remedies for the ADHD patient have been gaining popularity due to their safety, affordability, and effectiveness and are an option worth considering.
