Common homeopathic remedies for ADHD and ADD:
· Hyoscyamus Niger: This remedy is indicated for children experiencing poor impulse control. These children may be over exuberant, acting like the class clown, constantly moving around, making jokes, laughing and interrupting. Often, many of their actions and jokes are sexually based, and they can be obscene and vulgar. This remedy relieves many of these symptoms including various other sexually explicit actions.
· Stramonium: This remedy is indicated for children who experience excessive fears, especially of being alone or the dark. They can be violent, aggressive and full of rage. A child may scream in hysteria if left alone at nighttime or put in time out. The remedy is also indicated for kids who experience post traumatic stress disorder.
· Cina: This remedy is indicated for the child who has an aversion to being looked at or touched. The child may become aggressive when touched or reprimanded, stiffening his body like a board, holding his breath or refusing to respond. The remedy often calms excessively irritable children who are capricious, asking for things they want and then violently throwing them away.
· Tarentula hispanica: This remedy is indicated for the jealous, vengeful child who is sensitive to noise. He may be overly busy, constantly moving, likes to climb, is sensitive to vibrations and music, and is very hurried in all movements. He may express feeling small and lesser-than, powerless and be deceitful and cunning in his thoughts and actions. These children, like those needing Hyoscyamus, are often overly sexual.
