Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or attention deficit disorder (ADD) is a common psychiatric disorder linked to increased hyperactivity levels.
This neurological disorder hampers the social behavior of an individual including lack of presence, confinement to self-imaginations, lack of mental stability, etc.
Yes, it might seem common for growing children to show impulsive, hyperactive or inattentive behavior, but there are certain parameters, which if persisted for a certain period marks its unwanted presence.
If not treated, this mental condition can carry over to adulthood only leading to more adverse consequences.

As reported, ADHD or ADD is three times more common in boys than in girls.
Causes of ADHD disorder

Ritalin, also known as Vitamin R is the most common conventional medicine prescribed. This amphetamine drug functions to stimulate the nervous system increasing the hyperactivity levels.
But strangely enough, where in fact it should increase hyperactivity in ADHD patients, it performs the reverse and stabilizes these levels.
Though Ritalin provides symptom relief, the effects last only short term. Also, no research done until now guarantees that Ritalin may not cause any visible side effects in future.
Therefore, we highly recommend you to shift to safer and tested options that while treating you maintain a simultaneous balance within the body so that no side effects are created in future.
These alternative therapies include Acupuncture, Naturopathy, Homeopathy, etc.
Side effects of conventional treatments
- Affects height
- High blood pressure
