The Ayurvedic approach to ADHD is based on a philosophy of the body being out of balance in some way. By observing the symptoms of ADHD, Ayurveda identifies that the Vata dosha – which is linked with the nervous system and brain – is out of balance. To reverse this imbalance, the qualities of the other doshas – Pitta and Kapha – are needed. This is accomplished in several ways.

 

Come and discover:

• The critical role diet and digestion play in managing ADHD
• Environmental toxins that contribute to symptoms
• Importance of a detox regimen
• Supplements that can augment nutrition
• Techniques to reduce stress and overstimulation
