ADHD, also known as attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, can affect both children and adults.

It’s estimated that about 5 percent of children have ADHD as well as about 2.5 percent of adults. Adults with ADHD are often treated with medication, psychotherapy, or a combination of the two.

But what can you do if you’d prefer not to take medication? Functional medicine can be a breath of fresh air, especially when faced with a chronic condition or disease.

Because ADHD can be caused or triggered by a number of things, it’s helpful to investigate the root of the issue to see if there may be a solution to resolve it completely or at least alleviate the severity of the condition.

The Functional Medicine Approach focuses on the “triggers” of the ADHD symptoms rather than coating it in pharmaceutical drugs.
