Dr. Robert Ellsworth will focus on multiple issues such as nutritional deficiencies, balancing neurotransmitters, food and chemical sensitivities, heavy metals and environmental toxins. Modern laboratory testing can identify contributing factors. Individual protocols vary and assist the body and brain to restore a healthy natural balance.
Dr. Ellsworth’s experience with ADD/ADHD issues began over 35 years ago with his three sons. We search for causes, not symptoms and our goal is not to medicate. Please visit www.ADHDnaturally.org
Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder ADD/ADHD is a neurobehavioral developmental disorder. ADHD is primarily characterized by the co-existence of attentional problems and hyperactivity, with each behavior occurring infrequently alone.” While symptoms may appear to be innocent and merely annoying nuisances to observers, “if left untreated, the persistent and pervasive effects of ADHD symptoms can insidiously and severely interfere with one’s ability to get the most out of education, fulfill one’s potential in the workplace, establish and maintain interpersonal relationships, and maintain a generally positive sense of self.”
ADHD is the most commonly studied and diagnosed psychiatric disorder in children, affecting about 3 to 5% of children globally with symptoms starting before seven years of age. ADHD is a common chronic disorder in children with 30 to 50% of those individuals diagnosed in childhood continuing to have symptoms into adulthood. Adolescents and adults with ADHD tend to develop coping mechanisms to compensate for some or all of their impairments. However, many aspects of daily life that most people take for granted are rendered more difficult by the symptoms of ADHD.
Though previously regarded as a childhood diagnosis, ADHD can continue throughout adulthood. 4.7 percent of American adults are estimated to live with ADHD. ADHD is diagnosed two to four times as frequently in boys as in girls, though studies suggest this discrepancy may be due to subjective bias of referring teachers. ADHD management usually involves some combination of medications, behavior modifications, lifestyle changes, and counseling. Its symptoms can be difficult to differentiate from other disorders, increasing the likelihood that the diagnosis of ADHD will be missed or vice versa. Additionally, most clinicians have not received formal training in the assessment and treatment of ADHD, particularly in adult patients.
