bigstock-Adhd--Attention-Deficit-Hyper-231408031There is no debate that ADHD diagnoses have significantly increased over the past decade, but why? According to the American Psychiatric Association says that 5% of children have ADHD. However, other studies in the US have estimated much higher numbers. For example, in a 2016 Centers for disease control and Prevention study, scientists found that 6.1 million children (9.4%) ages 2-17 years old living in the US had been diagnosed with ADHD. So why is there such an increase of ADHD diagnosis?

Is it 

  • An increased awarness of ADHD and better case finding. 
  • An over-diagnosis and misdiagnosis of ADHD. 
  • A real problem due to factors that are affecting our children.

It has been discovered that environmental factors such as toxic exposures and nutrient imbalances can cause genes to influence many psychiatric disorders. Advanced nutrient therapy offers and alternative treatment approach to pharmaceutical medications. By creating a protocol of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids a natural method of correcting imbalances in neurotransmitters activity can be attained. For most patients, the benefits of advanced nutrient therapy result from the following. 

  • Normalizing the concentration of nutrients needed for neurotransmitter synthesis;
  • Epigenetic regulation of neurotransmitter activity; 
  • Reducing free radical oxidative stress.
