ADHD Treatment in Minneapolis
Many alcoholics and drug users trace their difficulties with concentration back to childhood. They often tend to be fidgety, easily distracted, impulsive, and clumsy. Some say they use alcohol and drugs to directly calm their hyperactive behaviors; these harmful drugs are detrimental to both ADHD treatment and ADHD recovery.
Doctors once believed that children outgrow hyperactivity in adolescence, but we now know there is no magic age at which symptoms disappear. Without ADHD behavior treatment, troubled children grow into equally troubled adults. They are sometimes ostracized because of their aggressive, defiant personalities.
Many adults exhibit telltale signs of hyperactivity, including nervous habits: nail biting, foot jiggling, workaholic habits, unstable emotions, insomnia, restless sleep, irritability, speaking with a louder or more highly pitched voice when stressed, and adult temper tantrums. ADHD behavior treatment can help rid you of all of these symptoms.
If the above sounds like you, you may have undiscovered food allergies or sensitivities that hijack your brain. These could be driving your ADHD symptoms and mean that you’re in need of ADHD treatment.
What Does ADHD Recovery and Behavior Treatment Look Like?
Rather than mask symptoms by pouring toxic psychiatric drugs into the brain, Health Recovery Center chooses to identify and treat the underlying causes of the ADD/ADHD and hyperactive symptoms. We want to facilitate true biochemical ADHD treatment.
We first do this by taking a look at your diet. A number of studies have linked hyperactivity and other childhood problems to food additives. There is persuasive circumstantial evidence to support this connection. In Europe, for example, there are less than twenty food additives approved for use; few children suffer from hyperactivity or are in need of ADHD treatment, as the disorder only affects one child in two thousand. In the United States, in contrast, more than four thousand food additives are in use and one in four children suffers from hyperactivity and is in need of ADHD treatment.
In addition, studies from Germany have shown that many children are highly sensitive to the phosphate (the bubbles) in soda pop. Researchers have found that phosphates can induce aggression, violence, handwriting changes, and dyslexia.
Certain foods and chemicals inhibit crucial enzymes needed to produce GABA, a calming neurotransmitter in the brain. ADHD recovery is impossible without these chemicals.
These inhibiting enzymes may be inhibited by a number of substances or conditions, including:
- Consumption of salicylates—natural chemicals abundant in many fruits
- A low-protein diet
- Estrogen fluctuation
- Vitamin B6 deficiency
Many of our clients have found successful long term ADHD treatment results by taking GABA supplements along with lifestyle changes based on pre-screen tests and lab results. If you are seeking a permanent ADHD treatment, contact us today. Recovery from ADHD—that is, permanent recovery—is possible.
