ADD ADHD. Attention Deficit Disorder. Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
Probably two of the most misunderstood disorders in the world. There are a lot of ideas about both. Some think they're not even 'real' disorders but rather just fancy medical terms for anything from bad parenting, to 'watching too much television', to laziness, to sleep deprivation, to having 'too much sugar' in the diet. In keeping with these ideas, the suggested cures for these problems are very simple. Just change the diet to nothing but healthy, organic foods, throw out the television, get plenty of exercise, use herbal supplements, and even introduce meditation as a means to cleanse the mind before sleep.
But are ADD and ADHD really just a diet, discipline, and exercise problem? Or is there something more going on? What does medical science say about ADD and ADHD? Is there a neurological condition associated with ADD and ADHD? Can adults suffer from ADD and ADHD? What about medications? Are they safe
