There is a great deal of confusion and misinformation regarding ADHD. Many people claim that it is not even a real condition, and that the undesired behaviors are simply a result of poor diet, lack of discipline, or both.
However, most medical practitioners concur that ADHD is a medical condition, with varying and complex causes. Certainly, diet may be one contributing factor, but that does not make ADHD any less a “real” condition. (Consider - diet is the primary cause of type 2 diabetes, but that doesn’t make diabetes any less of a medical condition).
The bottom line is that many children have been diagnosed as exhibiting degrees of hyperactivity, restlessness and inability that are beyond a normal range. Many adults also present the same symptoms, although many have not been specifically diagnosed with ADHD.
So, call it ADHD or call it something else, and debate the causes, but the symptoms are consistent, repeatable and classifiable, so a condition exists.
Parents of diagnosed ADHD children certainly know it does.
This eBook discusses ADHD in adults and children, its effect on physical and mental health and treatment options, both mainstream pharmaceutical and natural.
