Natural Remedies, Symptoms Diet for ADHD & ADD

Attention deficit hyperactive disorder or ADHD affects children as well as adults. Symptoms include dysfunctional behaviors such as poor concentration, difficulty in school, impulsiveness, and erratic emotions.

Natural remedies help support the imbalances in the nervous system. Treatments include behavior modification, special diet, flower essences, essential oils, herbs, and other natural remedies for ADHD symptoms.

Medical treatment for ADHD often uses drugs made of stimulants that may stunt the growth of a child, exhaust the nervous system, and become addictive along with all the other side effects.

Homeopathic remedies for ADHD are more successful when used in combination with nervine herbs. Specific herbs calm overall tension.

ADHD symptoms, dietHomeopathy for ADHD is very specific to each child; homeopathic remedies are compatible with conventional treatment. One challenge in finding the right homeopathic remedy for a specific child with ADHD is discovering the child’s personality underneath the “drug facade.” Improvement, while using homeopathy for ADHD, can still be seen while children are on medication. A second challenge is reducing drugs slowly, one at a time, under your doctor’s supervision.

Improvement in the symptoms of ADHD may be seen in minutes, hours, days, weeks, or months. You may need to try several homeopathic remedies for ADHD, maybe several at the same time, and use them for 1 to 2 months each.

Diet for ADHD

In a diet for ADHD it is helpful to change the diet for the entire family, not just the child. Refer to Dr. Christopher’s Mucusless Diet. Be prepared for resistance for the first couple of weeks and then a very pleasing improvement thereafter. Remember sugar and other carbohydrates create nervousness and instability in both children and adults. Also, a lack of good oils such as fish and flax oil or too much of rancid, bad oils, like those in French fries, can cause mental weakness and worsen the problem. In summary, avoid sugar and bad oils and make sure there are enough good oils in a healthy diet for ADHD.

Supplements are helpful when used along with the Natural Healing Protocol below. DHA – a fish oil extract, is helpful, but must be taken over a several-month period. Also use a good Vitamin B-complex that feeds the nerves.

Disclaimer: some drugs and herbs should not be combined.

Natural Healing Protocol: Combining supplements will do more to support your body’s ability to function properly than using just one. Use the following remedies for best results — your ability to heal will depend on the severity and length of time your symptoms have been present.

Baby Colic Natural Remedies

Colic for young babies includes painful indigestion. Symptoms of colic include gas, bloating and pain during and after feeding; spitting up may also be a sign of colic. Causes come from feeding baby the wrong type of formula or reaction to something in the formula; also reaction to mother’s milk when the mother is eating the wrong foods or is stressed. Colic also may happen when the child is stressed or is eating solid foods too early.

Modern medicine uses acid-reducing medicines for colic which may make the body feel better but may be toxic or disrupt the digestion further.

Naturally, the best thing to do is find the cause-usually dietary for mom or child. There are several great colic solutions that help the baby’s digestive system to work normally. Ideally the child should be breast fed until the child’s eye teeth come in, signifying the digestive enzymes are starting to flow and the baby can be put slowly on solids.

Disclaimer: some drugs and herbs should not be combined.

Natural Healing Protocol: Combining supplements will do more to support your body’s ability to function properly than using just one. Use the following remedies for best results — your ability to heal will depend on the severity and length of time your symptoms have been present.

Natural Healing Protocol


Herbs for Baby Colic

Herbs are plants valued for their specific strengthening/ tonifying properties.

Use the following herbs as a tea or in a glycerin extract:

Catnip and Fennel is the classic pair that helps most children; although they can be used separately.

Fennel breaks up gas, bloating and intestinal distress.

Cumin can be used when the other herbs don’t work. It works similarly to release gas, bloating, and generally indigestion.


Cell Salts to Help with Baby Colic

To make a cell salt solution, put up to 10 tablets of each cell salt in a 16- to 24-ounce bottle; fill with water and swirl to dissolve tablets. Sip throughout the day.

These soft pellets are ideal for infants and toddlers:

#8 Mag phos 6X – cramping, colic
#10 Nat phos 6X – acidity, digestion, bloating
#11 Nat sulph – digestive, liver health, gas


Baby Colic Homeopathic Remedies

Homeopathic remedies are non-toxic natural medicines safe for everyone including infants and pregnant or nursing women. You may use 6X, 30X, 6C or 30C potencies.

Because infants can’t tell you what is going on, choose a specific remedy or try Hyland’s colic tabs or Boiron’s Colic tablets to good effect.

When there is a more specific indication, use one of the following remedies:

Colocynthis – intestinal distress that is seen when the baby doubles over or desires to be held around the belly.

Dioscorea – colic symptoms displayed when the baby arches their back to get relief.

Chamomilla – when the child screams from anger or colic and cannot be easily consoled and has chopped spinach-like stools.

Baby Congestion Natural Remedies

Nasal congestion in babies interferes with sleeping and feeding, when nasal pathways are blocked. Congestion comes when a nursing mother may have a diet too rich in dairy products or there is too much stress from lack of sleep which affects the quality of mother’s milk. The baby may have allergies to the formula.

For baby congestion, most healthcare professionals recommend sucking out the mucus from the nose or using a decongestant if the child is old enough. From the natural perspective, we should look first at the mother’s diet, and help the mother and child to normalize mucus secretions to reduce congestion. Clearing the nose is helpful.

A humidifier with a few drops eucalyptus oil in the water may be helpful at night. It is good symptomatic relief.

Nursing mothers need to pay attention to their diet; also avoid tobacco, alcohol, caffeine, coffee, and soda.

If baby is on formula, you may need to change it.

Disclaimer: some drugs and herbs should not be combined.

Natural Healing Protocol: Combining supplements will do more to support your body’s ability to function properly than using just one. Use the following remedies for best results — your ability to heal will depend on the severity and length of time your symptoms have been present.

Natural Earache Remedies

Earaches come from infection or inflammation of the inner parts of the ear. They may also be caused by Eustachian tubes that are blocked or inflamed. They can be acute or become chronic over time. Often ear problems, as the Chinese describe, are linked to kidney problems. One can put a hot pack over the kidneys or use other remedies to strengthen the kidneys.

Symptoms are various types of pains felt on the inside or outside of the ear; heat, pressure, stabbing pains, etc.

Modern medicine treats earaches with antibiotics. While helping in some cases, this does not address the cause. To treat the cause, support the ear and kidney areas of the body and let it heal itself.

earache detectionEarache Detection

Press on the tragus (outer ear button). If sensitive, it may be a sign of inner ear inflammation.

Pull back ears and put pressure on the mastoid bone. If tender or sensitive, it may be an ear inflammation or infection.

Further, slide your finger down the bone behind the ear into the canal and push firmly down to the bottom of the neck. Any tenderness along this Eustachian tube (the equalization tube between the ears and the throat) may indicate a blockage and contribute to an earache or infection.

Natural solutions reduce inner ear and Eustachian tube congestion and assist the kidneys in reducing fluid pressure within the ears. Diet suggestion – avoid dairy products that may cause excess mucus in the body.

Disclaimer: some drugs and herbs should not be combined.
