Natural, Drug-Free Therapies & Tips For ADHD
Updated: Mar 5, 2020
Many of my clients are looking for tips and tricks to thriving with their ADHD. There is a place for medication for some people, but for others they want to lower their dose and try more natural approaches.
Keeping stress in check in the most important tip. The best way to help bring that overwhelm paralysis and procrastination is to MOVE YOUR BODY. Putting the phone down, turning off the screens, and go for a 10 minute walk, do a few jumping jacks, do a few pushups.
Proper nutrition is also key to helping your brain function better. A high quality fish oil has been proven to be helpful for people with ADHD, but so too is a diet low in junk food and process carbs. Think protein, fat and complex carbs at every meal. There will be another blog post forthcoming with details on what foods and nutrients are helpful for people with ADHD.
Below is an infographic with more tips including music and a few apps that can be lifesavers in terms of cutting down screen time.
