ADD Treatment
Without Medication

Authored by William G. DeFoore, Ph.D.

This ADD treatment works with your mind, your emotions and your behavior to bring about lasting change and relief from child and adult add symptoms. 

Many of the techniques are free, and you can do them on your own at home, at work or anywhere. All you need is motivation--and you've got that, or you wouldn't be here reading this!

As a matter of fact, I happen to think you've got what it takes to master your own ADD symptoms, or to help your children with theirs.

You are far smarter and stronger than you may realize, and you will use those internal resources to reach your goals for overcoming add symptoms here.

One Possible Explanation Of ADD

Attention deficit disorder--not enough attention to the "right" things. What I mean by that is that when you (or anyone) is paying attention to something you love, something that excites you, something you're passionate about, there is no deficit of attention!

So, let's look at how this might work:

  • The attention deficit is there when there's not enough passion, love or excitement to hold your attention in place.
  • Those are emotions--passion, love and excitement, so my suggestion is that ADD is at least partly caused by not enough positive emotions.
  • Now, what about negative emotion? Well, that's what happens when you have to do something you don't want to do.
  • So, you're in school or at work, you're not excited about the subject matter or task at hand, but you have to do it. So, you get frustrated, distracted, maybe anxious or angry.
  • And, all of a sudden, you're not paying enough attention, not completing your tasks, distracted and unfocused--all symptoms of ADD.

That makes perfect sense! What I'm suggesting is that there may be nothing wrong with your (or your child's) brain. You may have just developed some thought and behavior patterns that have gotten stronger over the years and stayed with you.

Now let's look at some ADD treatment solutions! 

ADD Treatments For Kids

I have worked with many children and adolescents who were diagnosed with ADD or ADHD, and in every case, I find that the young person has no trouble paying attention to something they're interested in.

The "attention deficit" is not enough attention to what parents and teachers think is important (and probably is).

I'm not saying this is not a problem, I'm just saying that it usually doesn't mean there's anything wrong with your child's brain, and medication is not usually the answer

Many schools, such as those using the Waldorf Method focus on helping children develop multiple intelligences so that they're using more of their brain capacity and  maintaining a strong positive interest in their activities and learning.

ADD Treatments For Adults

I promised you at the top of this page that I would offer you some free, do-it-yourself approaches to healing your attention deficit disorder. Here they are:

  • Review your personal history and emotional trauma, and write out a detailed description of all of that you recall. This has been shown to lower stress and reduce medical complaints of all kinds.
  • And finally, use positive journaling exercises to begin shifting your attention and focus to what you love and are excited about. This is simply a matter of writing daily about what you're grateful for, what you appreciate, and what you are looking forward to. Watch this video to learn exactly how to succeed with this type of ADD treatment.

Above all, never, ever give up on yourself. Believe in yourself and your good heart! Learn even more about effective treatment for ADD here.
