Acupuncture for ADHD and ADD

The stimulant Ritalin is often prescribed for ADHD and ADD (attention deficit disorder). Parents are beginning to question the drugs side-effects and are asking for alternative approaches to ADHD. 

 In recent years, acupuncture has become a popular complementary therapy for children suffering from attention deficit disorder. This is because of the safe nature of acupuncture therapy which has very few side effects. Acupuncture is a complete system that evaluates each patient individually and addresses their unique personality, constitutional problems, and their body type. Combinations of points are prescribed based on this evaluation and patients rest with the points for 20-30 minutes.

In acupuncture, attention deficit disorder is often the result of insufficient nourishment of the spirit, spirit agitation by some type of heat, or obstruction by static blood or phlegm. Impaired blood flow may also interfere with the normal engenderment of blood and hence lead to insufficient spirit nourishment. Points are selected based on which of these problems the child has.
