Reading the latest ADHD article, I was surprised on how far treatment of attention deficit disorder has come since I was a kid. You see, I had childhood ADHD, and I can tell you first hand that, back then, there was only one option for treatment. That was to medicate. Oh sure, sometimes there was counseling used for ADD, but every ADHD article that I read at the time said that the only solution was to medicate. Fortunately, it is not that way anymore, according to every article on ADHD I’ve read recently.
Of course, the truth is that it varies between doctors, so an ADHD article tells an absolute, definitive medical position, but if you look at the facts, things really have changed a whole lot in the last ten years. The cutting edge in ADHD article research is now focused on the stories of kids who have been treated for ADD successfully without medication. There are many reasons why things have changed so much, so here are a few.
One of them is simply the fact that there have not been enough longitudinal studies done on the effects of using speed on kids. ADHD medication is usually made up of powerful stimulants, and although there has not been an epidemic of kids dying or anything like that, nevertheless, there is no one who knows for sure if these medications are really as safe for kids as they are claimed to be by the pharmaceutical industry. According to one ADHD article that I read, the reason that treatment by medication became so popular in the first place has to do with the tremendous amount of money which has been invested into ADHD articles by the pharmaceutical industry to claim that the medications are safe. More than one ADHD article questions this wisdom and says that, not only are the medicines not safe, but there are more effective treatments available today.
Some of the treatments advocated in an ADHD article are things like NLP, or various behavior modification programs, but many doctors say that they have gotten good results through simple things like diet. Now that my kid has developed ADHD, I think that I will try out what these articles have to say. Even if I can not find the solution in any ADHD article, it is worth trying if it means that there is a chance that my kid will not have to take medication.
