ATTENTION DEFICIT 

Attention deficit disorder is characterized by having trouble paying attention and focusing on tasks, tending to act without thinking and having trouble sitting still. This condition may begin in childhood and can continue into adulthood. Attention deficit disorders cause problems at school, work, at home and in relationships. Sufferers find it hard to finish tasks, focus and organize. They often forget things.

There is no cure for ADD but medication may help control the symptoms. There are several attention deficit disorder medications which are normally stimulants. As with all medications these may produce unwanted side affects.

ADD help is available through your health care provider. The treatments range from bio feedback to prescription drugs. For those suffering with ADD disorder there are several natural alternative options such as herbal treatments and homeopathic treatments.

The ADD diet is also popular and in many cases very effective. This diet eliminates food additives and sugars. It replaces them with organic foods and herbs like Stevia, a sugar substitute.

Some herbs have been shown to be effective in the treatment of ADD. Ginkgo, Gotu Kola, Satint John's Wort, Skullcap and Stevia are all used with some success.
