  • LATEST: Can bee stings CURE arthritis?
  • Herbal treatment for ADHD

    Q: I’ve been trying to research as much information as I can on alternative ADHD treatments. Can you tell me about some herbal options?

    Dr. Wright: The Ayurvedic herb Bacopa is considered to be the herbal remedy for ADHD, namely because of its beneficial effects on concentration and information processing. In one double blind, placebo-controlled trial, 19 children with ADHD received Bacopa (1 g/day), and 17 children with ADHD received a placebo.

    After just three months, the Bacopa group demonstrated significant improvement compared to the placebo group in all test areas, including improved visual motor function, short-term memory, and mental reaction times. The testing took place four weeks after the herbal treatment was stopped, which indicates that Bacopa has a long-lasting effect.

    Other key herbs for ADHD include ginseng (either American or Korean ginseng) and Ginkgo biloba. A small pilot study showed that a combination of Ginkgo standardized extract and American ginseng had positive effects in children with ADHD.

    You should also consider adding pure pine bark extract to the herbal regimen. A study a few years back found that giving ADHD children a pine bark extract significantly improved hyperactivity and inattention compared to a placebo. From what I’ve read, it seems to be another powerful natural alternative to mainstream drugs.
