Ayurvedic Treatment for ADHD
Every science has its own vision and thought process and these are the only things which make difference in between different sciences. Where Ayurveda believes in treating the problems by understanding the natural phenomenon behind the problem. This becomes important to understand that what all other streams of treatment do in treating the different conditions. Here is the detail what modern medical science do in case of the ADHD, this will give you an overview and will help you to understand that how Ayurveda is different from allopathy system in the cure of ADHD.
Modern health science medications do not cure ADHD. These only suppress the symptoms for as long as they are taken. Medications can help a child pay attention and be calmer. It is not clear, however, whether medications can help children learn or improve their skills.
However, there are possibilities that a line of treatment working successfully on a fellow might not work on another one. One child might have side effects with a certain medication, while another child might tolerate the mediation. Sometimes several different medications or dosages must be tried before finding one that works for a particular child. Any child taking allopathic medications must be monitored closely and carefully by caregivers and doctors.
Side effects: The most commonly reported side effects are decreased appetite, sleep problems, anxiety, and irritability. Some children also report mild stomachaches or headaches.
Other possible rare side effects: these medications may lead to cardiovascular (heart and blood) or psychiatric problems. The ADHD patients with existing heart conditions have higher risk of strokes, heart attacks, and/or sudden death when taking these medications.
There are also slight increased risk, for medication-related psychiatric problems, such as hearing voices, having hallucinations, becoming suspicious for no reason, or becoming manic (an overly high mood), even in patients without a history of psychiatric problems.
It is also found that with some ADHD medications, children and teenagers are more likely to have suicidal thoughts. His or her behavior should be carefully monitored. A child may develop serious symptoms suddenly, so it is important to pay attention to your child's behavior every day.
So modern medicines totally believe in managing the condition by suppressing the signs and symptoms, not in treating and managing the problem!
A simple question to all the parents whose child are suffering with ADHD- this is your child who is suffering and he/she needs your help and most of the parents think that they are destined with a problem? This is all about your Child, not about you. You can make things better for your child by yourself, this is not about visiting some physicians/psychiatrics/trainers or finding a good information on the internet or in books- this is about bringing some peace, pause and pace (all simultaneously) for your baby. This is your assistance which matters a lot in all cases and Ayurveda believes in same. Ayurveda believes in awakening, not in suppressing!! Awake your child, never make him an addict for some medicienes which can worsen their health by playing with the body unnecessarily.
Ayurvedic Treatment for ADHD:
You as a parent need to understand and accept that your baby needs some assistance and help from you and nothing magical is going to happen with your baby. Change is a journey. Abrupt changes are never good - floods, earthquakes and Tsunamis are the sudden changes. For this progress you need to support your baby by accepting and understanding his/her requirements and never except any magical transformation. These expectations for magical transformations will press your child psychologically and always keep in mind that even you never say to your child what do you expect from him/her.....please remember your baby can read you from deep inside.
Before planning an Ayurveda treatment for ADHD; we should understand ADHD according to Ayurveda. As per Ayurveda; our whole of the nervous system is governed by the Vata Dosha. It is the aggravation of the Vata Dosha which is making a fellow restless, inattentive, and too much active. As long as this Vata Dosha is not balanced; all the measurements will be inadequate. Along with balancing the Vata Dosha we should also plan for the nourishment of the brain and whole nervous system.
By regulating and controlling the Vata Dosha,Ayurveda can do the following in case of ADHD-
- Ayurveda can control the hyperactivity
- Can bring calmness so that child will have complete attention in work
- Ayurveda will regulate the irregular movements- on both physical and psychological levels.
- Once we control the Vata Dosha , aggression will be a matter of the past hour.
- Ayurvedic Treatment for ADHD is safe and wont affect the working of the any system of the body.
- Ayurveda is all natural so there won't be any ill effects on the body or mind.
- In case of ADHD, it is not only about improving the skills, skills are always there one need to improve and orient the skills.
When it comes to Ayurveda most of people think that this is only about using some gold preparations with high cost to assist your baby, this is as FALSE as saying that Ayurveda can do magic for the ADHD sufferers, so please take a complete advice from some good physicians and stay away from quacks.
