After all, some years ago, Health Canada banned the sale of Adderall there because there had been cases of sudden deaths due to cardiac health defects. In the USA, this drug, alomgside the most popular Ritalin is still available and there are many on the market like them. They are mainly stimulant ADHD drugs and there are the non- stimulants. The problem is that the ADHD drugs side effects for both types are almost the same. These include weight loss, stunted growth, hallucinations, suicidal thoughts and sleep challenges. This is enough to prevent any child from having a happy, healthy and normal childhood. There are doubts about how the actual drugs work and the Mayo Clinic mentions this fact that nobody knows except that they act on the brain chemicals and have the effects of calming a hyperactive child down. What the pharmaceutical giants forget to tell us is that the drugs act on the central nervous system and therefore there are more likely to be other problems such as insomnia and also depression is sometimes a co-morbid disorder. There are lots of ways we can provide a Ritalin alternative. http

Natural Cure For Depression, Bipolar, ADHD, Schizophrenia

This is an interesting natural therapy treatment used for ADHD, depression, bipolar, and schizophrenia. Worth taking a look at considering all the side effects of other pharmaceuticals.

This alternative therapy employs vitamins, minerals, and amino acids to create optimum nutritional content for the body, as well as the right environment and equilibrium. Like most alternative medicine techniques, orthomolecular medicine targets a wide range of conditions. [depression, bipolar, adhd, schizophrenia, add, addiction, alcoholism, drug addiction…] Orthomolecular medicine was developed by Linus Pauling, Ph.D., winner of two Nobel prizes, in 1968. It is designed to enable individuals to reach the apex of health and the peak of their performance by utilizing only naturally occurring substances (eg vitamins, minerals, enzymes, trace elements, co-enzymes). The proper balance of these substances in the body is the key to reaching physical, mental, and emotional health and stability. Orthomolecular medicine can be used therapeutically to treat diseases such as cancer and AIDS, or preventatively to impede the progress of degenerative disease and aging. When all is said and done, however, the main objective of orthomolecular medicine is to help the patient reach an optimal level of health; his or her self-esteem will probably improve in the process. Although orthomolecular medicine did not fully develop into a therapy until the late 1960’s when Pauling coined the term “orthomolecular,” the premise behind this practice originated in the 1920’s, when vitamins and minerals were first used to treat illnesses unrelated to nutrient deficiency.
