Have you been told that the ONLY effective way to reduce ADHD symptoms is through medication? 

That’s what I was told when my son was first diagnosed with ADHD, and it’s also what MANY of the families we work with have been told. 

But I want to tell you today – there ARE natural strategies such as diet and lifestyle changes that can be just as effective (or sometimes even more effective) in reducing symptoms and improving quality of life.

(Keep reading this post for some of those strategies!) 

Paula’s granddaughter began taking ADHD meds when she was 6 because Paula, like many other caregivers of children with ADHD, thought that was her only option.

“Her behavior,” Paula told me, “was out of control.” 

They really wanted to work with me to learn how to reduce those challenging symptoms naturally. 

BUT…

They worried our process wouldn’t work for them. 

You see, their sweet granddaughter also spent time with her father, and he wasn’t on board with the changes we were suggesting.  

So…

What do you do when one family member isn’t on board? When you want to make some changes to your child’s diet and lifestyle but know another member of the family won’t support your efforts when the child is with them? 

Is it possible to see positive results EVEN with these obstacles? 

 

Tune in to the above video to hear about the AMAZING changes Paula has seen in their granddaughter’s ADHD symptoms since implementing the natural strategies we taught their family! 

So..what are those natural strategies that can help reduce ADHD symptoms? 

Research has shown that certain foods and nutrients can have a positive impact on ADHD symptoms. 

Here are some examples:

 

✔️Omega-3 Fatty Acids: Omega-3 fatty acids are essential fatty acids that the body needs but can’t produce on its own. Studies have shown that omega-3s can help improve attention, reduce hyperactivity, and boost mood in people with ADHD. Sources of omega-3s include fatty fish such as salmon and tuna, as well as flaxseeds, chia seeds, and walnuts.

✔️Protein: Protein is important for building and repairing tissues in the body, and it can also help improve focus and concentration. Studies have shown that children with ADHD who eat high-protein diets have better attention and fewer symptoms compared to those who eat low-protein diets. Good sources of protein include lean meats, fish, beans, lentils, and tofu.

✔️Complex Carbohydrates: Complex carbohydrates are a good source of energy and can help stabilize blood sugar levels. This is important for people with ADHD, as blood sugar imbalances can contribute to mood swings and impulsivity. Complex carbohydrates include whole grains, fruits, and vegetables.

✔️In addition to incorporating these foods into your diet, there are also foods you want to cut out. You can read more about that in this post, but as a summary, cut out gluten, dairy, soy, artificial flavors and colors, and refined sugars and sweeteners. 

There are also several natural strategies outside of food that can help reduce ADHD symptoms:

 

✔️Exercise: Exercise is a great way to improve focus and reduce hyperactivity. Physical activity helps increase blood flow to the brain, which can improve cognitive function and reduce symptoms of ADHD. Aim for at least 30 minutes of exercise per day, such as walking, running, or biking.

✔️Mindfulness: Mindfulness is the practice of being present in the moment and non-judgmentally observing your thoughts and feelings. Studies have shown that mindfulness can help improve attention and reduce hyperactivity in people with ADHD. Try practicing mindfulness meditation for a few minutes each day.

✔️Sleep: Sleep is important for overall health and can have a big impact on ADHD symptoms. Lack of sleep can contribute to inattention, irritability, and hyperactivity. 

✔️Supplements: While it’s important to get nutrients from food first, certain supplements can also be beneficial for reducing ADHD symptoms. Magnesium, for example, is a mineral that can help calm the nervous system and improve focus. Vitamin D is also important for brain health and can help reduce symptoms of depression, which often co-occurs with ADHD.

It’s important to remember that everyone is different, and what works for one person may not work for another. If you’re considering natural strategies for managing ADHD symptoms, it’s important to work with a healthcare professional who can help you develop a personalized plan. They can also help monitor your progress and make adjustments as needed.
