Treating ADD and ADHDIncrease Brain Function Naturally, Don’t Medicate & Mask the Symptoms

With summer vacation more than half over, the start of the new school year is quickly approaching. As anxious parents start the preparations for getting their children back-to-school, the parents of children with learning disabilities cope with the added pressure of a potentially rocky transition from an easy summer schedule to the structured school environment.

This transition can be very difficult for children diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) because they often have tremendous difficulty behaving in a structured environment, performing well academically and even simply getting schoolwork completed.

The hardest part for children with learning disorders like ADD and ADHD is that they genuinely want to be able to focus, do their work and learn without distraction like their peers, but it is simply too hard for them to achieve on their own.

In many cases, these children become extremely frustrated with learning because regardless of the effort they put forth, they oftentimes cannot stay focused or retain the necessary information.

Arnica to Heal Bruising Arnica (Arnica montana and Arnica fulgens) is an herb that grows in the mountainous areas of Europe, Siberia, and Canada. It also grows in high altitudes of the north-western United States. The rhizome (root) and flowers are used in herbal medicine to treat swelling and bruising.

Flowers are harvested when they are at the peak of blooming, and the rhizomes in autumn, when nutrients and healing constituents are stored in the roots for winter.

Uses

Arnica creams, ointments, gels and tinctures are the usual forms. Homeopathic “pillules” and gels are also common forms of the herb. Arnica is applicable in the following situations and injuries.

* Local trauma (bumps, bruises, swelling)

Sprains, bruises, and other blunt trauma to the body can be treated with arnica, provided the skin is not broken. It is especially effective when swelling is present. Arnica moves fluid through tissues, keeping it from accumulating, and improves the blood flow to the injured area.

Congestive heart failure prognosisCongestive heart failure (CHF) is a chronic heart condition that leads to reduced blood flow to the body because of the reduced ability of the heart to pump efficiently. After diagnosis your cardiologist or primary care physician will recommend treatment protocols based on your current health, any underlying medical conditions and the causative factor for the CHF.

Any heart failure is a very serious problem and is often a chronic problem. This means that once diagnosed you will have congestive heart failure for the rest of your life. The prognosis of your condition, or your long-term outlook, is dependent upon several factors. The first factor is your overall general health. Individuals who are diagnosed with congestive heart failure by who are healthy overall have a better long term prognosis than those who are diagnosed with congestive heart failure and already carry several other underlying chronic medical conditions, such as diabetes, cancer or kidney failure.
