Natural cures for ADHD

I don’t know much about ADHD but have started wondering if I suffer from it. I know there are drugs on the market, but I’m not in a position to prescribe them myself, are there any natural remedies available over the counter that people know of, and should I be a bit cautious about self-diagnosis;?; Thanks.

There are a number of non-stimulant medications, such as atomoxetine, bupropion

There is evidence of a modest benefit of omega 3 fatty acid supplementation, but it is not recommended in place of traditional medication.

Just did the ADHD self-diagnosis test and got a strong indication of the condition, might talk to my psychiatrists about this.

Take some peanut butter. Yes, a spoon full of peanut butter. This will calm you down, and level you out. A fresh, natural, sugar free peanut butter. or some fish, try kippered snacks if you like them those will also level you out and bring you back down. My daughter has ADHD and getting her to calm down after school was a big problem and I found these things seem to help the most with changing her brain chemistry.

Basically ADHD is supposed to mean that you are hyperactive unless you have a stimulant. So if something with high amounts of caffeine calms you down you have it. So you would be the person chilling with the energy drinks. I was misdiagnosed with ADHD and energy drinks screw me over.

Yes, coffee helps me sleep, I’ve always wondered why that was, tea as well, not sure about taurine, I went through a phase of drinking it, but was worried it was not natural, does red bull contain synthetic taurine, what about coke, is the caffeine in that synthetic as well, I always thought they got it from cola beans. Do you have any opinion about them;?;

I hope you are talking about the soda which yes does have caffeine in it. It’s due to cocoa which is also in chocolate.

This is interesting. I also did a test and it said i have adhd. So how does The meds work? Do they calm you? I know nothing about Adhd.

Though I have a taste for chocolate, I’m a little bit of a wuss when it comes to the real thing, I can’t really get my tongue’s receptors around dark chocolate, grapfruits I love, so it’s not the bitterness, it’s much more complex than that, I don’t know how to describe it, and raw vegan chocolate almost made me vomit. As I said, I’m not really that experienced with modulating the taste buds on my tongue to accommodate it, did you mean coca or cocoa, I think both are in coke. Anyway, sugar is what I wanted to talk about, which is why I brought up my disability with real chocolate. Sugar, like crystal meth, is designed to teach the youth about the swings of growth and recession that the empire naturally goes through, via it’s highs and lows, acclimatising them to living within the confines of the walled city. I only ever take sugar with cocoa, not coffee, which I drink black, I try to drink diet coke or coke zero, usually opt for pepsi max because of the taste, but I have my doubts about aspartame and whatever other synthetic compounds are added, naturally occurring nectar is probably best, which you can get from honeysuckle. I think commercially producing it though would be a massive burden on the planet. Thank you.

High dose omega 3 works wonders for ADHD. I’ll recommend Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega 3. It gives 650 mg of DHA and 450 mg of EPA in single soft gel.

DMG 125 mg daily also useful if have mood issues like depression, anxiety, OCD etc.

I’m quite happy taking omega 3’s, I used to take them every day some years ago, perhaps I’ll start again.

Does anyone know if atomoxetine , bupropion can be taken in conjunction with amisulpride and sodium valproate. I’ll ask my pdoc, but I’d like to have as much information to hand before I do. Thanks.

Prescription drugs need to be taken with caution as many of them have serious sideffects. Atomexetine can cause heart rhythm issues even though its not a stimulant and also almost no effect on ADHD. Anti seizure medication sodium valproate can cause memory issues so it should be taken as last resort for serious seizures and bipolar mania.

Many antidepressants and antipsychotics can cause QT prolongation. So if you already have some heart issues then these can cause issues particularly if taken long term.
