Attention Deficit Disorder and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (more commonly known as ADD and ADHD, respectively) are neurological conditions that affect over five million children and adults in the United States every year. These disorders can have a crippling effect of the lives of their sufferers—including lifelong underachievement, acting carelessly, and increased forgetfulness. Thankfully, there is something to be done—ADD and ADHD patients don’t have to suffer alone. Here at Lean Healthy Life we are proud to offer you programs and treatments that can help you manage and even eliminate the debilitating symptoms of your ADD or ADHD. We’ll work closely with you to ensure that you’re receiving a personalized plan of action that addresses your unique situation.
Let’s take a closer look at how ADD and ADHD can negatively affect your life and what there is to do about it:
Symptoms of these conditions normally appear in childhood; however, it is not uncommon for them to continue through the teenage years and even up into full adulthood. Despite the popular belief that ADD and ADHD are caused by a diet with too much sugar or bad parenting, their true roots are still largely unknown. However, most researchers believe these conditions are hereditary and passed along genetically. The frustrating thing about this, though, is that there is currently no genetic test available to look for the presence of an “ADD gene.”
Despite these diseases’ mysterious origins, their symptoms are all too real for millions of sufferers. If you have ever experienced any of the following, then you might be living with ADD or ADHD and not even know it:
- Inability to pay attention to details — many sufferers find that they struggle with accuracy in their work or academic lives.
- Struggle with personal responsibility—these disorders often keep people from fulfilling duties in their personal or professional lives.
- Inability to stay still — with ADHD specifically, sufferers may compulsively fidget or feel restless.
- Careless actions — ADD and ADHD often compel people to act before thinking things all the way through. This is often manifest in their inability to follow directions.
Modern Western medicine’s most common answer to these two disorders is medication. By using prescription drugs they are able to mute the symptoms, so that sufferers can experience relief. However, this isn’t a real cure—it’s merely the suppression of a disease instead of the elimination of it.
