How to Help Your Kids - or Yourself - Get Much Needed ZZZs


Is it ADHD or a sleep disorder? Which problem is contributing to your (or your child's) inattention, hyperactivity, behavioral problems, and ultimately, impaired academic/work performance?

The answer is likely both! Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and sleep disruptions such as insomnia, sleep terrors, bruxism and snoring can display symptoms which are often interrelated or mistakenly attributed to the other problem.

Research from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine shows that teens who received a childhood diagnosis of ADHD currently display sleep disturbances that can endure into adulthood, regardless of the severity of existing ADHD symptoms.

What does this mean?

These findings may also explain the prevalence of sleep disorders in adults today, as they may be dealing with multiple health disorders and issues, notably ADHD, which become exaggerated or exacerbated by the other, leading to a cycle of frustration.

It is therefore important to address not only the sleep issues present but also the root cause. A holistic approach to health can safely and effectively help alleviate symptoms of both problems, restoring peaceful minds and sleep patterns, while sustaining and improving overall health.

What can you do?

Making simple changes in diet and exercise can help. Incorporating relaxation therapies such as guided imagery, meditation techniques, or yoga can be beneficial as part of a holistic program.

Is there natural help?

There are natural remedies which can help relax tension and increase drowsiness for better overall sleep. These remedies help to balance hormones to restore sleep patterns and restful sleep.

There are also many herbal and homeopathic remedies which can help maintain harmony, health, and systemic balance in the brain and nervous system, without side effects or sedation. These products are known for their supportive function in maintaining brain, nervous system and circulatory health and well-being, while reducing or eliminating adult ADHD symptoms.

By properly addressing and finding a health regime that suits both lifestyle and purpose, you can help yourself or your child effectively manage symptoms and a live a happier, healthier life.
