Interesting websites about ADD/ADHD (Adults and children)

Diagnosing ADD/ADHD is a complicated process. It is important to talk to  professional specialised in this topic before you say that someone is ADD/ADHD.

There are many psychologists in Sydney who can help you to confirm or not if  you or your child have an ADD/ADHD brain.  I prefer to say someone has an ADD/ADHD brain, not someone is ADD/ADHD person or suffer from ADD/ADHD.

Once you know that you or your child have an ADD/ADHD brain, you can look for strategies and treatment to improve your brain.

Remember:

  1. Our brain is plastic, which means that it can be improved and change;
  2. There is always solution to every problem, so don´t give up to look for your solution until you find it.

EMDR is excellent to help to treat ADD/ADHD brains because it helps to process the traumatic events and calm the brain down, consequently  it stimulates the executive memory and the frontal lobe functions, but we need to consider many other changes/treatments too: diet, maybe medication, or supplements, physical exercises for the body and for the brain, and consider and treat other mental (depression and anxiety) and medical issues(hormonal imbalance in general, such as Polycystic ovaries, thyroid, adrenal fatigue; chronic pain, digestive problems, visual problems and hearing issues).
