ADD / ADHD
Repost from Dr. Heiner Frei
Hyperactive children and children with sensory disturbances – attention deficit disorder (ADD) and attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) – are the most commonly seen demanding patients in paediatric practice. Conventional pharmaceutical treatment consists of stimulants such as Ritalin, Concerta, and so on – that is, medicines that fall under narcotics legislation in many countries. Parents are often hesitant to treat their children with this type of medication. In the Swiss ADD / ADHD double-blind study, our research team proved under rigorous scientific conditions that homeopathy is effective in hyperactive children [Eur J Pediatr: 164 (2005): 758-767]. Furthermore, the long-term follow-up of the study participants over five years shows that 75% of all patients can be treated adequately with homeopathy alone, and that prolonged homeopathic treatment reduces the symptom intensity by about 50 percent, even after treatment is stopped.
