Attention Deficit Hyperactivity
Toronto Children/Adult Naturopathic Treatment
ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) and ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) require holistic treatment that addresses environmental factors, nutritional factors and psychological factors.
Nutrient deficiencies and exposure to toxic metals, such as lead, can negatively affect brain function, leading to ADHD symptoms. Food allergies, synthetic food additives and eating refined sugars also contribute to attention deficit and hyperactivity in both children and adults.
Dr. Guthrie uses specialized diets, nutritional supplements and herbal medicines to support optimal brain function. As well, stress management and coping techniques are important aspects of treatment.
