Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
This condition can start in early childhood and, unfortunately continue into adulthood. Sometimes ADHD is not recognised or diagnosed until the person is in the adult years.
Adult symptoms may include –
Disorganisation and challenges in prioritising
Difficulty in time management
Lack of focus on a task
Challenged by multi-tasking
Restlessness or excessive activity
Frequent mood swings
Finds stress unmanageable
Given the above almost everyone has some symptoms of ADHD at some point in their lives. It is more a matter if the symptoms continue and are severe enough to affect one or more areas of your life that is best to seek help.
Adult ADHD can lead to unstable relationships, underperforming work/school goals, low self-esteem, feeling isolated and/or alone, anxiety, etc. Like everything of course, there are varying degrees from mild to severe. For some people as they grow older, their symptoms lessen which is encouraging.
For some adults with ADHD they may not realise they have this condition, just that they find routine tasks, challenging. eg. focus, prioritising jobs, missed timelines, overlooked meetings or social plans. Impulsiveness can also be a part of this, shown when driving or waiting their turn in a queue, emotional outbursts … at times with anger.
Potential causes –
Brain injury – significant head injuries may cause ADHD in some cases.
Anatomy and function of the brain– a lower level of activity in the parts of the brain that control attention and activity level may be associated with this condition.
Genes and heredity – frequently runs in families. An estimated 1:4 possibility of a child having ADHD if a parent has this situation.
Exposure to environmental toxins (eg. lead in paint or pipeworks) during pregnancy or at a young age can affect development and behaviour.
Potential link to vaccinations
Alcohol and tobacco use during pregnancy – prenatal exposures increases the possibility of ADHD.
Premature delivery – increases the possibility of developing this condition.
Low birth weight
Let’s look at the metaphysical (ie the emotions which relate to the physical/mental condition) –
From “Secret Language of your Body” by Inna Segal –
“Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD/ADD) –
Difficulty concentrating or paying attention. Boredom, frustration, aggression. Not knowing how to share or communicate feelings. Feeling trapped, forced to do what you don’t want to do and does not interest you”.

It is said Food, Exercise and Sleep are 3 important facts to help with this condition.
Foods which may help are –
High protein diet –
Beans, cheese, eggs, lean beef, poultry, fish, low-fat dairy, soy and nuts to name a few have beneficial effects on ADHD symptoms. Best to have these in the morning or at the end of school/work days as they will help with focus and creating neurotransmitters, the chemicals released by brain cells to communicate with each other.
