Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common mental disorders affecting children. ADHD also affects many adults. Symptoms of ADHD include problems with concentration, hyperactivity and controlling impulsive behaviors. Self-focused behavior, forgetfulness, interrupting, emotional turmoil, physical restlessness and frequent feelings of frustration can all be signs of ADHD in children and adults.
Research has shown a rising trend of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) usage among children with ADHD across various populations. Traditional Chinese Medicine offers ways to help symptoms of ADHD holistically, without the side effects caused by medications.
The exact cause of ADHD is unknown. Factors that may be involved include genetics, the environment or problems with the central nervous system at key moments in development. According to the basic theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), problems like ADHD are concerned with imbalances of the Heart, Mind and Spirit. In a meridian system, human health is characterized by “yin” and “yang” as well as five organ networks. Symmetry of these two forces and the organ systems is required for a healthy mind and body, whereas imbalances result in conditions such as ADHD.
