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
