• ADHD - Or How Carefree Childhood Can Be

NEW. Paperback published in Holland by Emryss in 2023.

Nowadays we hear increasingly of the growing number of children with ADHD, whereas in the past, ADHD symptoms appeared during the school years with the 9-10 age group being the most likely to experience the first signs of attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder. Today parents are often warned very early, almost from the age of three or when leaving the home environment that their child could have ADHD.

This is when testing begins to investigate if they really do have ADHD. If the tests confirm it, or if a specialist also identifies an ADHD problem, parents can start thinking about what kind of therapy to choose.

There are many therapies and methods to help the newly labelled child.

The aim with this book is to describe the ADHD problem and its characteristics at different ages; and to highlight the effectiveness of homeopathy in the treatment of ADHD.

Most of us have heard a lot about the ADHD problem, but not everyone knows what the disorder is.

In the first part of our book, the authors describe the general symptoms of ADHD; point out the symptoms that occur at different stages of life; describe the different types of ADHD; and list the associated disorders of ADHD.

Ideas on how parents can use behaviour therapy at home, or teachers at school are presented. The aim is to understand and support the child with his/her altered behaviour; what tools to use in different stressful situations or when it is important to leave concentration undisturbed, and to teach the child how to use these tools.

However, ADHD is not just a childhood problem. In many cases, when a child has not been given the right support, or in cases where it is thought that ADHD has been outgrown, symptoms may yet persist into adulthood. Not at the same level as in childhood, of course - adult symptoms are more subtle - but they can make life just as difficult.

There is also a special chapter for adult ADHD and its symptoms.

The second chapter is devoted entirely to homeopathy.

The authors describe situations where the different type signs are very characteristic. The first chapter of the book discusses general ADHD types, but in the second chapter this is discussed on a homeopathic level. The issues within the types, what may be the basis of the problem; what is most characteristic of the child; what is most indicative of his or her true own self, individual behaviour.

For each type, a rubric is given suggesting how to find the symptoms in the homeopathic repertory.

In this second part, the authors provide further help on how to understand the case even better; how to differentiate between an extroverted and an introverted character; and describe the most typical behavioural manifestations of the different characteristics and their rubrics in the repertory.

In the first chapter it is shown that ADHD has associated difficulties but in the second chapter it is shown how a homeopathic approach can be used to obtain more precise and specific information about an associated problem by asking questions; and to list the homeopathic rubrics for this information.

Towards the end of the second chapter the most common homeopathic remedies in the treatment of ADHD are given. Nemeth and Petrucci have endeavoured to present the remedies as they might be encountered in an ADHD child; and in the schema in which we have presented the homeopathic approach to ADHD.

This book has been written based on many years of experience, and the aim is to provide a better understanding of the effectiveness of homeopathy in the treatment of ADHD.
