If your child has attention and behavior Bach flower remedies can help. This post is for parents who believe there is a way to help your child without the use of drugs. With the news of rehab for Ritalin, you may want to think twice before giving this drug to your child.
The symptoms related to ADD/ADHD can safely be addressed with Bach flower remedies. I have created two formulas that safely address the common issues of ADD/ADHD. The first blend addresses inattentiveness and the second blend addresses hyperactivity.
Over the years I've received numerous phone calls and emails from parents thanking me for making these blends available. To fully address the situation it is best to use the blends for 3 months. If you do this and take other supportive steps you will be giving your child a boost that can support their attention and behavior and their confidence. These formulas are also good for adults.
Symptoms of ADD/ADHD in children:
These symptoms can be broken down into two categories Inattentive and Hyperactive. Now let's explore the hyperactive category at a deeper level.
- Constantly fidgets and squirms
- Often leaves his or her seat in situations where sitting quietly is expected
- Moves around constantly, often runs or climbs inappropriately
- Talks excessively
- Has difficulty playing quietly or relaxing
- Is always “on the go,” as if driven by a motor
- May have a quick temper or a “short fuse”*
