Learning Disabilities (Attention Deficit Disorder - ADD/ADHD)

What is ADD/ADHD?

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a group of chronic disorders that begin in childhood and sometimes last into adult life.

Problems generally associated with ADHD include inattention, hyperactivity and impulsive behavior. They can affect nearly every aspect of life. Children and adults with ADHD often struggle with low self-esteem, troubled personal relationships and poor performance in school or at work.

Scientists increasingly believe that structural changes in the brain may be a leading cause of this disorder. At the same time, certain environmental factors such as environmental toxicity and food allergies may contribute to or worsen a person's symptoms. Although much still isn't understood about ADHD, researchers have identified several factors that may play a role and one of these is brain function.

Brain Function

Scientists once thought that a chemical imbalance was involved in many cases of ADHD because adults and children diagnosed with ADHD appear to have low levels of dopamine, a chemical that sends messages to the part of the brain involved in attention, movement and motivation. But brain scans of children with ADHD also show changes in the neural pathways along which these messages move. It's possible that this may interfere with communication between the parts of the brain that regulate attention, planning, impulsive behavior and motor control - all areas of difficulty for people with ADHD. Also decreased brain wave activity in the prefrontal cortex or frontal lobes is often seen in people who have cognitive difficulty. Abnormal frontal activity is a major factor in ADD&ADHD. The prefrontal cortex is involved in mediating concentration, impulse control and critical thinking.

Treatment

The best treatment for ADHD is a matter of debate. Currently, psycho stimulant drugs are the most common treatment for these conditions.

Alternative Healing Therapies are an important and effective treatment in alleviating many of ADD/ADHD symptoms. Multimodal interventions including diet (low allergenic, gluten-free, dairy free) nutritional supplements (Vit B, magnesium, essential fatty acids and others also help to improve this condition.

Alternative Healing Treatments such as energy therapy and working with the person's electro magnetic energetic field as in Neural Transmission Repatterning (NTR) is one of the modalities successful in the treatment of ADD/ADHD. A treatment such as NTR assists the cellular biology of the body and brain to reorganize, integrate, regenerate and repattern the neural pathways increasing the electrical transmission or energy of the brain and stimulating those areas of the brain which are under functioning, bringing a compromised system back into alignment or integration.

Counseling, special accommodations in the classroom, and family and community support are other key parts of treatment.
