ADD AND ADHD TREATMENT OPTIONS
ADHD can be managed with other treatment options. Perhaps one does not need to be using strong medication over many years that acts directly on brain functioning?
Ear acupuncture, combined with the placement of gold magnets on the ears (magnotherapy), has been shown to be very effective in helping children and adults diagnosed with ADHD and ADD.
There is a possibility that a child or adult could come off of strong drugs such as Ritalin, Concerta and Strattera over time (under the guidance of your doctor). These conditions can be managed by other means which include certain diet regimes, as well as ear acupuncture and magnotherapy.
Magnotherapy is the practice of placing small magnets in very specific Auricular Acupuncture (ears) points on each ear.
The best case scenario is to complement the treatment by:
- using ear acupuncture (Acudetox) where 5 needles are inserted into specific points in each ear for about 45 minutes.
- after this, small gold magnets on a sticky plaster are placed on the posterior shen men point of the ear.
Up to 22 treatments of 1 treatment per week may be required where the magnets are replaced weekly (up to 5 months).
The magnets assist in balancing the polarity of the left and right hemispheres of the brain. i.e. they keep the brain chemistry and electrical function stable.
Most ADD /ADHD is caused by toxicity (the Chinese medical understanding of toxins). Unfortunately, a half to two-thirds of our children appear to have these learning disabilities and usually, they are treated with drugs like ritalin and sometimes even given psychiatric counseling.
Causes of ADHD
ADD/ADHD is caused by unstable or dysfunctional brain chemistry (Western Logic)Eastern Logic says ADD/ADHD is caused by a dysfunctional body i.e. organs (liver, kidneys, lungs etc.) are not functioning properly resulting in imbalanced brain chemistry / function and ability.
The imbalance in the organs cannot be detected through modern allopathic methods other than measuring the polarity of the organ function though using an electro stimulator / pointer / meter. It is important to notice that most ADD cases are simply not ADD.
Other factors that can cause emotional, logical and focusing inability include:
- Behavioral boundaries not being managed correctly by the parents.
- Disinterest in life caused by stress at home.
- Disinterest in life caused by a lack of vision, purpose or direction.
- A simple belief that there is no point to life.
- A simple belief that failure will result in every process.
- A low self worth.
- A lack of attention or love at home.
- Poor role models.
- Poor diet.
- An inability to fit into the group.
- A lack of belief or trust in the educational system.
- The feeling of being just a number.
- It could also be a case of misdiagnosed asberger’s autism. Undiagnosed brain damage.
- Poor eyesight.
- Poor hearing.
- A below average I.Q.
- And many others, it’s not always ADD!
The above mentioned causes are definitely inconvenient to address and time consuming. It is important to realize that many children are on medication because addressing their unacceptable behavior is inconvenient to the parent, but not impossible.
Each proposed case of ADD or ADHD must be properly investigated.
Where the cause of the problem is body imbalance, ADT & magnotherapy are highly effective in balancing the body, brain, mind and behaviour. Normally the cause of an unbalanced body (organs) can be traced back as far as birth. Children can be born with various complications or dangerous afflictions whereby it is certainly necessary to use modern methods to treat, stabilize and even save the life of a baby.
It must be understood however that modern drugs are in fact chemicals (toxins) and ultimately, although the short term effect of keeping the child alive is achieved (from birth throughout childhood), the long term effect is body toxicity and organ dysfunction – i.e. dysfunctional brain chemistry.
In Chinese Medicine, normal organ function is the seat of human health and brain chemistry function. Body and brain dysfunction caused by organ dysfunction is extremely common nowadays. Our water, our food, our air and even our medication, literally poisons us.
Where ADD and ADHD are caused by such, Acudetox and or Magnotherapy is the most powerful and successful treatment available. However diet plays an important role in the treatment process and well as diet maintenance process after treatment. Boundary issues and parenting techniques also play a critical role.
