Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)or ADD (without the hyperactivity) is indeed the most commonly diagnosed psychiatric disorder in children today. The focus is on a physiological brain disorder with a genetic component. ADHD/ADD is often treated medically with stimulant drugs such as Ritalin, oral anti-hypertensives and antidepressants. These medications can no doubt be effective if carefully monitored, side effects are possible, and most of these drugs do have associated risks.
Clinicians do indeed make use of homeopathy for ADD/ADHD as it has proved worthwhile. Children diagnosed with ADHD were indeed given a homeopathic treatment or a placebo for ten days, then their parents and teachers do rate the children on the amount of ADHD behavior they displayed. Those taking the homeopathic medicine do show significantly less ADHD behavior, in just 10 days.
