We know that ADHD/ADD have been diagnosed for decades; however, do we really understand these pervasive diagnoses? We know that ADHD is Attention Deficit with Hyperactive behavior, and that ADD is Attention Deficit, but do we really know what the root causes of these disorders are? There are many theories circulating about what causes ADHD/ADD such as chemical imbalance, faulty neurological wiring, food allergies, and other disorders, but I propose that a lot of ADHD/ADD is due to severe anxiety. During this one hour tele-seminar I will explain this theory and how essential oils can assist in diminishing the symptoms of ADHD/ADD and the underlying anxiety. Topics that will be discussed include:
• The similarities between ADHD/ADD and Anxiety.
• How conventional psychotropics treat ADHD/ADD and Anxiety.
• Non-pharmaceutical treatments for ADHD/ADD.
• Essential oils that can help with ADHD/ADD and Anxiety.
• Creative essential oil application methods to help children with these diagnoses.
