Learning to Relate
There is much still to learn about ADHD and how its effects can trickle down from the person suffering to family members, friends, co-workers, and other relationships. This month we are bringing to you Native Remedies' latest addition... a specialized newsletter focusing on ADHD-related issues.
This month we explore the interrelationship between genetics and the disorder - although the link is not explicitly understood, a strong correlation has been found in numerous studies.
New studies report that obese mothers actually increase their children's risk of developing the disorder, as correlations have been found between the mothers' body mass index and a child's symptoms.

Another study showed how the physiological aspects of a person with ADHD predisposes them to other conditions, as research shows that children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are nearly four times more likely to be bullies - and children who now exhibit ADHD symptoms now have a ten-fold chance of having been a prior target of bullying.

What's even more shocking is that while some children display signs of ADHD that carry with them into adulthood, many of them are being medicated very early... perhaps even prematurely. Imaging studies showed that some youth with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder displayed normal patterns of brain maturation, but with delayed growth of up to three years in the regions responsible for controlling judgment, behavior, planning, and attention... which means they could potentially "outgrow" the disorder altogether.

We bring you this information along with suggestions for how you can implement simple lifestyle changes that can exponentially help the development and growth of your child, as well as bring advice for how to cope with your spouse or partner who may be suffering from the disorder. The more you understand, the better equipped you are to manage the symptoms and enjoy the relationships you have.

Can Your Child "Outgrow" ADHD?
With an average of three to four million children taking prescribed stimulant medications to control symptoms of ADHD, the list of possible side effects is not only long, but daunting as well.
There are new studies that may provide some hope for sufferers and parents alike. However, research has revealed that perhaps parents will not have to medicate their children and expose them to prescription-related risks at all.

Is Your Weight Putting Your Child at Risk?
Over the past four decades, the number of children with chronic health conditions has risen considerably and the question that rises to the forefront of every parent's mind is - why?
All good parents want to improve the health and well-being of their child, and certainly becoming a leading cause of the child's problem is the last thing they want. But research is showing that genetics play such a significant role in the development of a child that even the mother's weight matters.

When ADHD Takes an Ugly Turn
How to mediate bullying behaviors associated with the disorder
A new Swedish study says that children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are nearly four times as likely to become bullies. Conversely, the February issue of the journal of Developmental Medicine and Child Neurology states that children who now exhibit ADHD symptoms had a ten-fold chance of having been a prior target of bullying.
The study's co-author Dr. Anders Hjern, professor in pediatric epidemiology at the University of Uppsala in Stockholm, says the results show the importance of paying attention to the interactions between children with ADHD versus healthy children. It might explain whether it is the ADHD children who are causing difficulties, or rather if they are acting out as a result of the bullying.

Tired of the Tug of War with your ADHD Partner?
Helpful Tips on ADHD for Couples
While many people are familiar with the struggles of raising or interacting with children suffering from ADHD, when the problem extends into adulthood, fewer people are knowledgeable about the proper way to cope. Further, those in a relationship with a person with the disorder can face frustrations and difficulties caused by the common distractibility, impulsivity, and excess energy associated with the syndrome. Often these symptoms can leave the partner tired, distressed, hurt, or misunderstood.
Neglecting to address these pent-up emotions can lead to the demise or breakdown of what could be a healthy connection. However, there are positive steps you can take to relate to your spouse or partner to build a communicative, healthy relationship.

"I'm just curious if switching from Strattera to Study Plus would be very effective? I'm looking for an ADHD treatment that gives me more energy." - Josh
For ADHD support, we would rather recommend a combination of our Focus ADDult and Focus Formula.
Focus ADDult contains three highly effective tonic herbs in concentrated medicinal extract. It is important that it be taken regularly in order to enhance the overall tonic effect. Wile some people show an immediate effect, most people can expect to notice a difference in energy levels and mental clarity after about three weeks of continued usage.
Concentration, focus, and memory should show increased improvement over time. You will notice that you can think more clearly and in a more focused way. Students and scholars should notice an increased concentration span and the ability to study effectively for longer periods of time. Be aware that lifestyle factors like diet, health and fitness levels will all play a part in concentration and overall cognitive functioning. While Focus ADDult is highly effective on its own, its effectiveness will be increased with regular exercise, sufficient sleep and a healthy, balanced diet.
