Can We Treat ADHD Naturally?

Free Webinar Replay: New Supplement Strategies: Using Trace Minerals and Plant Extracts to Treat ADHD in Children and Adults

In this hour long webinar on-demand, learn integrative approaches to ADHD treatment with James M. Greenblatt, M.D.

ADHD is a complex disorder. Despite its prevalence, and decades of research devoted to understanding its causes and streamlining its diagnosis, ADHD treatment recommendations have remained largely unchanged and success rates for therapeutic outcomes remain mediocre.

One root cause of this problem is widespread under-appreciation of ADHD’s biological underpinnings. An ever-growing body of scientific evidence confirms ADHD to be a neurologic, brain-based disorder represented by numerous biological abnormalities; in other words, what is observed as atypical behavior is merely the tip of an iceberg that extends down to an individual’s unique biochemical makeup. Certain nutritional abnormalities, which can profoundly impact cognition and behavior, are significantly correlated with ADHD. Health-care practitioners, however, often overlook nutrition, mineral levels, and individual biochemistry when assessing and treating ADHD in both children and adults.

Fortunately, addressing key nutritional imbalances with an integrative treatment plan has proven effective in treating the symptoms of ADHD, as has using natural, plant-derived compounds called oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs). To the ADHD patient, practitioner, or parent, this integrative approach is a beacon of hope, one substantiated by modern science to effectively address the root biologic causes of ADHD.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • Why an integrative approach to ADHD treatment can succeed where traditional approaches may fail
  • The role of zinc in cognitive and behavioral health, and its utility as a treatment for ADHD
  • The causes and ramifications of magnesium deficiencies in ADHD patients
  • The clinical applications of magnesium supplementation in ADHD
  • How magnesium can minimize stimulant medication side effects
  • How OPCs work and benefit the ADHD patient as part of an integrative treatment protocol
  • The significance and symptomatic repercussions of elevated lead and copper in ADHD
