Natural Remedies To Deal With ADHD and Sleep Apnea in Children
It is most important to evaluate sleep problems. The ADHD symptoms could be the result of sleep apnea or too much stimulation from electronics in general – but especially before bed. (Electronic light exposure prior to bedtime can decrease melatonin production, making it harder to fall asleep).
There are also a host of natural alternatives to stimulants for ADHD. During the day, kids showing symptoms of ADHD need extra, structured movement to help normalize energy levels. Such activity can include a regimen of walking daily for prolonged periods of time.
Parents should also avoid foods that rob the body of magnesium, like soda and caffeine. It’s a good idea to plan a diet high in natural magnesium, with at least one serving of a true dark green vegetable, like spinach, and also a handful of nuts. (For young children, parents can consider juicing spinach and/or slowly increasing the amount of dark greens in a soup or introducing fruits juiced with ever increasing amounts of greens).[ Read Complete Post By Dr. Robert Tozzi At Fox News … ]
