Briefly known as ADHD, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is a neurobehavioral developmental disorder. It is one of the common psychiatric disorders in children. It impairs the children’s functioning in multiple settings. If the disorder is left untreated, it may affect the life in the later periods. ADHD is a chronic bio disorder and it is characterized by hyperactivity, impulsivity, and inattention. The symptoms can lead to difficulty or disinterestedness in emotional, social and academic functioning. There was a time when it was believed that with the age the ADHD disappeared spontaneously but the recent opinions indicate that the symptoms of ADHD may continue lifelong if not treated.
The hyperactivity symptoms become obvious by the age of 5 and reach to its acme at the age of 8 to 9. The symptoms of inattention most likely appear in the age of about 8 and 9. No exact causes of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder have been discovered yet. It is believed that the factors like genetics, diet, social and physical environment etc contribute towards the exacerbation of ADHD.
Treatment of ADHD is a lengthy procedure but homeopathy eliminates this disorder with its individualistic approach to treatment and brings the patients back to the track of desirable holistic development.
