Natural Remedies for ADD/ADHD Include:
Doctors prescribe stimulant medications to help ADD/ADHD patients regroup their brains and stay on task. These medications often come with nasty side effects. An alternative is caffeine, which is frequently found in most breakfast drinks, energy drinks and some foods.
Yes, chocolate! Chocolate contains small amounts of caffeine, a stimulant, plus theobromine, a natural mood enhancer that allows you to feel better and think better. Combining your morning coffee with chocolate for mocha packs twice the punch.
- Fish and Fish Oil
Fish is already a big “brain food.” Fish oil capsules can be purchased and ingested if you do not like fish. For maximum impact, you should be eating fatty-rich ocean fish, like salmon and tuna, once a day to get enough fish oil in your diet.
- Gingko and Ginseng
Ginko and ginseng are both found in energy drinks. They perk up the brain, producing an “awake” effect similar to caffeine, but without the grouchy side effects. You can also purchase ginseng and gingko supplements.
- B Vitamins
Your B vitamins encourage an increase in oxygen in the blood, which provides more oxygen to the brain, which causes you to regain focus when you are tired. Take a B vitamin supplement every morning. You should notice a difference in focus right away.
