Aromatherapy for ADHD

What is ADHD?

ADHD or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is commonly diagnosed in children and young age.

This disorder, as the name suggests, creates hyperactivity, impulsiveness or shortens the attention span of the child.

The child may start to get impatient while working. He may not be able to concentrate on something for a long period of time.

ADHD is more common in young boys as compared to girls. It can be congenital but there is no significant study for what actually causes the disorder. Anyone can be a victim of this disorder.

Although ADHD can be cured with the behavior therapy and some drugs but these can only cure the symptoms and if the family of the child is not supportive enough, chances of relapse are high.

Aromatherapy Research for ADHD

However, a study done by Dr. Terry Friedmann in two years (1999-2001) has given hope to the parents of those suffering from ADHD.

Dr. Friedmann is a noted researcher in the study of essential oils and therapies done by them.

The research conducted by Dr. Friedmann shows that this disorder can be cured by use of essential oils including Lavender, Cedar wood and Vetiver.

With Vetiver being best for the treatment, it has given 100% results in the study.

During the study, children with ADHD disorder were prescribed to inhale these essential oils three times a day and arrangements were made for continuous inhalation at night.

This experiment was carried out in a 30 day period and it gave unbelievable results. Pattern of brain waves were detected to come to normal and the performance of children improved in their school and other daily activities.

Essential oils have always been of a great interest for people to cure diseases for which there is no known treatment in medical science. The treatment done by them is not so time consuming as they get to the brain very fast and work quickly. If one of your children has ADHD, there is now hope for him.
