Symptoms Of ADD covers the causes, signs, symptoms and treatment, along with what you can do to fight this condition. 

Symptoms Of ADD

Causes Of ADD:

Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) is a type of ADHD (H=Hyperactivity).  People believe ADD is caused by a genetic defect, or poor discipline at home, but little evidence exists to support either belief.  Many believe a high carbohydrate diet is a major cause of this condition. 

Signs And Symptoms Of ADD:

If children are very inattentive (daydreams, easily distracted and sidetracked), with no other symptoms, the condition may be ADD.  ADHD may be the condition if other behavior symptoms are present, like impulsiveness or hyperactivity.  You should note that most of these symptoms are common with all children, so, make sure you're not just dealing with a discipline issue, before subjecting your child to medical treatment.

Treatment Of ADD:

Usually, treatments include behavioral therapy and drugs, along with other treatments for ADD.  There are current studies to determine the most effective treatment: behavioral therapy, medication, both, or none.  The most common treatment is to put the child on stimulant drugs.  The National Institutes of Mental Health NIMH can give you more information.

What You Can Do About ADD:

While you should check with the doctor before using any home remedies, there are some non-drug home remedies that are showing results.  Coffee is an inexpensive and safe alternative to the drugs normally prescribed.  The most effective home remedy is a high protein, low carbohydrate diet and 2 cups of brewed coffee (with caffeine) in the morning.

Complete Healing:

If you're concerned about health, you probably want a healthy life...including mind, body and spirit.  You can renew your mind and spirit with God's help.  He can heal the stuff your diet doesn't control.  If you want His help, go to Healing From God.
