Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
Although considered a medical condition, both ADD and ADHD are traditionally treated by a Physician w/prescriptive medication. Holistic interventions include lifestyle + diet + behaviors + collaborative communication w/a child's educators & other providers (including counseling / therapy). Integrating diverse approaches with a primary holistic perspective supports medical intervention effectively. I am not a physician, however, I collaborate with you, your child, and the treating physician and expect to know what methods of intervention you incorporate for your child, especially medications (name of medication, dosing, and who the prescriber is). This is not intended to be intrusive, but rather a collaboration emphasizing the strengths of the child.
Although some prescribed medications for ADD/ADHD are in the amphetamine drug family (also known as speed), other drugs are also available that are not addicting and with a shorter shelf life in the body. All clients managing their ADD/ADHD pharmaceutically, should consult their prescriber with any concerns, questions, or preferences and are required to make this decision w/their physician. Pursuing holistic approaches requires commitment to supportive treatment and can be time consuming requiring reflective & intentional routines, remaining mindful of a child's influences & supports which can impact success with alternative strategies.
Note: I am not a "prescriber" of pharmaceutical prescriptions (Rx). You will be redirected to your physician or other legal prescriber for drug therapy although communicating that treatment to me is expected.
