ADHD Ritalin and ADHD Natural Remedies
In the United States there are now eight million children using Ritalin as an ADHD Remedy, a habit forming amphetamine with many properties similar to cocaine. According to Dr Blaylock a board certified neurosurgeon; Cocaine destroys main cells in the limbic system by an excitotoxic mechanism.
Some of the side effects of this drug are dizziness; drowsiness; headache; loss of appetite; nausea; nervousness; stomach pain. The severe ones can be Severe allergic reactions, behavior changes (e.g., aggression, hostility), mental or mood changes (eg, agitation, anxiety, depression, irritability, persistent crying, unusual sadness). This is not something you would call a natural adhd remedy.
In general and until now drugs do not cure ADHD. Instead, they just temporarily suppress the symptoms. They are for sure quick to react and give you and the school peoples a break, but according to Dr Blaylock they also alter the brain functions. On the other hand the alternative treatment for adhd is not a pill; it's a combination of many things; diet, supplements, outdoor activities, discipline, and lots of love and parental interaction and presence. As you can tell this stuff is free of side effects.

Diet and nutritional supplementation solutions as alternatives to Ritalin and other ADHD medication are the two modalities that scientific studies continual to prove offers a high degree of effectiveness in ADHD treatment.
