Optimal Health and Development Center now offers a holistic approach to help people manage the challenges associated with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Optimal Health and Development Center is a Certified “SHINE for Doctors: Special Help for Integrating Neurological Experience” practice that combines ADHD expertise, chiropractic alignment and neurological assessment with exercise and nutrition counseling.

ADHD is typically characterized by impulsivity, inattentiveness, and hyperactivity—characteristics that make it hard for those with this trait to reach their highest potential. When managed effectively, those with ADHD have accomplished extraordinary successes, but if undiagnosed or untreated, ADHD can wreck lives.

ADHD expert Dr. Edward Hallowell says that having ADHD is like having a Ferrari engine for a brain with bicycle brakes. In keeping with this analogy, Pearl, of Optimal Health says, “We teach children and adults with ADHD how to strengthen their 'brakes' while also giving their bodies and 'engines' a tune-up. Medication is not the only answer.”

Recent studies indicate that the use of medication to help manage ADHD is on the rise, however, many people with ADHD prefer a holistic, alternative approach and are already familiar with Dr. Hallowell and his NY Times bestselling book, Delivered from Distraction.  Pearl will combine Dr. Hallowell’s strengths-based approach by first identifying the unique gifts inherent to everyone, and then tailoring their proven chiropractic techniques to person with ADHD achieve their full potential. More information on the SHINE program can be found here.

Nice article. It does not provide many examples of non-medical (pill-free) treatments. If you Google "nestoiter what is vestibular stimulation" and "nestoiter Hidden Powers of Tightrope: Balance Training" you will find articles that provide practical way to dealing with ADD/ADHD symptoms.

As an Adult ADD/ADHD Coach I have coached hundreds of clients.  Coaching works!!  While coaching doesn't make ADD go away, implementation of the tools and new thought patterns can make it seem so to the outsider.  For example, most adults with ADD/ADHD will readily admit they interrupt because they are fearful they will forget what they want to say.  This impulsive behavior is often really an anxiety response to what ADDers are telling themselves about the outcome if they wait to speak.   ADD/ADHD Coaching helps clients examine the core issues, the "truths" they are telling themselves -- from this place behavior change is possible because when we change how we look at a problem (what we say to ourselves) the outcome changes as well.   FInd out more at www.coachrichmand.com.

Eating healthy and exercising are two of the best things a person can do for his health. People who have been unable to adopt a healthy lifestyle often have to force themselves to eat well and get enough exercise in order to live a better life. Thanks.
