What is ADHD really?
Updated: Sep 4
As I began to research the true medical reasons for Autism symptoms, I kept coming across similar findings for people diagnosed with ADHD. Many neurological conditions that we know of today like anxiety, depression, OCD, can all be caused by other medical issues. I will discuss anxiety and depression in another post. If you would like to know more about Autism and underlying medical conditions for it, please go here.
As parents, we are overwhelmed with everyday survival. We don't have time to research and really dig into the science and research of treating our children. We rely on our doctors to do what is best for our children and guide us to the appropriate treatment plan. Unfortunately, many doctors treatment plan for ADHD is the medication band aid. Medication does not resolve the root cause for why a child is experiencing ADHD symptoms. Often, children will be on a medication for a few years and then have to switch to a different medication because their symptoms get worse. The reason for that is because the root causes of their ADHD are not being addressed. ADHD symptoms may be caused by one or more of the following conditions:
Underlying chronic infections
Heavy metal toxicity
Retained primitive reflexes
If we can resolve a child's symptoms through a better diet, supplements, detox and exercises, then that could be a better choice than medication. Is it a harder choice? Is there more work involved - absolutely! But in the end, it helps your child truly heal from ADHD and not just giving them temporary "relief" with a pharmaceutical approach. We at Warriors of Care are here to help advocate for your child to help identify their underlying issues and to get them on a healing treatment plan. We try to make this as easy as possible for you. We will work together with your provider on a strategic plan to help alleviate your child's symptoms. We will be by your side to sort through whatever bumps in the road come and to help support any lifestyle changes that are needed. Book an assessment here.
