Adults with ADHD are less well known than children with the same condition. However, it is reckoned that around half of children with ADHD still have it in adulthood. This means that an ever increasing number of adults will fall into this category, as the numbers in children increase every year.
Children with ADHD are normally over energetic, or hyperactive as the name implies. However, adults are less spontaneous. We have learned to compensate our natural tendencies to fit in with society. So restlessness tends to be the dominant symptom for ADHD in adults. Restlessness is a more subtle form of hyperactivity, but both are rooted in anxiety. Anxiety tends to make it difficult for to focus. And herein lies the problem.
Adult ADHD can be problematic in terms of holding down a responsible job, so those with this condition often end up in lower paid work. Accidents are more likely to happen. Substance abuse is more common, with more than normal smoking, alcohol and social drug use. Relationships can be challenging, for both parties.
ADHD is medically termed a psychiatric condition, so those diagnosed are likely to end up on strong medication. For some, this can help with their symptoms, but not for everyone. The medication can only ever manage the symptoms. It can never cure the problem.
In addition, medication will always affect the health of your liver and that of your immune system, as all medications are chemicals. Chemicals are inherently toxic to the body. The health of your liver and immune system won’t be affected immediately, but will be over time.
In addition, you may have to deal with the side effects of the drug.
So what are the alternatives? Are there any other ways to helps with ADHD adult symptoms? Are there any effective and natural ways to help? Are there any permanent solutions?
The answer is a resounding ‘YES’ to all four questions!
Homeopathy is a complete system of natural health. It works by searching for the cause of the problem and by matching the symptoms of the patient to that of the prescribed remedy. Homeopathy works at an energetic level, rather than the physical level psychiatrists work at, as all life is energy. Which means that energy based medicine has the best ability to effect profound change.
Homeopathy works by restoring balance to a challenged economy. It does this gently, easily, effectively and permanently. Because homeopathic remedies are not chemicals, they are not toxic, so no side effects occur.
Adults with ADHD, as well as with children, can finally turn to an honourable, gentle and effective discipline of medicine which can dramatically change their life. Dr Mahesh Gandhi is an Indian psychiatrist, working in Mumbai, who is also a homeopath. He has helped many people permanently overcome many different mental health issues, including ADHD. His works spans some 30 years.
There are many causes of any ailment or condition. The susceptibility of the individual determines what permanently affects them. However, it is widely considered by holistic practitioners, that vaccines are the root cause of many ailments, including this one. Certainly vaccines cause a wide variety of disorders because they so badly interfere with the body’s immune system.

What passes for food can also be a trigger. Processed food, white sugar, white flour, artificial colours, flavours, preservatives, etc are toxic to any life and can exacerbate an existing problem.
Adults with ADHD do have a choice. They can remain on their chemical medication, probably for life. They can continue to eat unhealthy food. Or they can choose to explore homeopathy and how it can help them. You don’t have to be permanently affected.
