Dr. Shawn Talbott is joining the show to talk about October being National ADHD Awareness Month! ADHD – or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder affects millions of kids – and adults – across America.
Symptoms of ADHD are a lot more extensive than just problems “focusing” – they include:
- Being disorganized
- Having a hard time paying attention to details
- Having a tendency to make careless mistakes
- Having trouble staying on topic while talking
- Not listening to others
- Being forgetful about daily activities (such as missing appointments)
- Being easily distracted
There is a wide variety of science-supported natural approaches to improve focus and attention:
Pomegranate – helps to activate brain regions associated with BOTH focus and calmness
Caffeine – small amounts of this “stimulant” can actually calm the brains of people with ADHD Pine Bark – helps to improve the “speed” of brain processing
Theanine – naturally found in green tea, can help to reduce “beta” brain waves (tension/irritability) and enhance “alpha” brain waves (relaxed alertness)
Saffron – shown in clinical studies to be equivalent to Prozac for mood and Ritalin for focus
