ADD & ADHD – Behavioral Disorder with a Biological Basis?

In the context of natural health approach, one does not treat symptoms but rather looks to the underlying cause. ADD or ADHD does not mean Ritalin deficiency, but rather it is often caused by nutritional imbalance.

Some of the common symptoms of ADD with hyperactivity (ADHD) are restlessness, inability to concentrate, aggressiveness, incomplete projects, quarrelsome attitude, and angry outbursts. To teachers and parents, these are considered often as “behavioral” problems. On the contrary, ADD children are passive or predominantly inattentive. These children are often quiet and though intelligent and bright, they just cannot seem to take in the information presented to them. They have been labeled to have “processing” problems.
