Natural Solution for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD/ADHD)
Ayurveda offers a potential alternative solution for ADD/ADHD patients. This condition is a prevalent neurological/behavioral disorder of the children. Youngsters who suffer from ADD/ADHD face issues in focusing, have impulsive nature, and get easily distracted. With the passage of time, patients believe that they are being neglected and they make aggravated efforts to gain attention. According to Ayurveda, life-force energy (Prana-energy that control movement force) governs the nervous system. However, the deficiency of this life-force energy (Prana) causes loss of all senses and memory. This deficiency renders the nervous system in an uncontrollable state which is the root cause of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD/ADHD). This further disrupts the natural harmony of Dhi (acquisition/learning power), Dhriti (analyzing power), and Smriti (retention capability).
Natural therapies for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD/ADHD)
Ayurveda focuses on diet, lifestyle, Yoga, Pranayama & authentic herbs. These natural remedies for ADD/ ADHD enhance the secretion of digestive juices (Deepan & Pachan), elimination of the natural toxins (Ama), rejuvenation of the damage cells (Rasayana), & cleansing of the blocked microchannels (Srothosodhaka). All these natural protocols balance the life-force (Prana) & movement energies (Vata Dosha) and calm down the nervous system. Additionally, the natural herbs (Medhya Rasayana) enhance the coordination of Dhi (acquisition/learning power), Dhriti (analyzing power), and Smriti (retention capability). These natural nervine tonics elevate the mood to overcome anxiety, stress, tension, depression, hyperactivity, and impulsivity.
