What is ADHD?

ADHD is a common mental health concern typically diagnosed during childhood. However, it affects many adults too. It’s characterized by problems sitting still and focusing for long periods. 

When not treated, ADHD can cause issues at work and in relationships. See the Body & Mind Consulting experts if you suspect you have ADHD or your current treatment isn’t working. 

Which symptoms can ADHD cause?

ADHD can lead to:

  • Fidgeting while trying to be still
  • Problems paying attention for extended periods
  • Hyperactivity
  • Impulsive decisions
  • Issues at work or school
  • Forgetting things
  • Disorganization 
  • Interrupting other people 
  • Risky behaviors
  • Problems multitasking

You may be able to make simple lifestyle adjustments to reduce symptoms of mild ADHD. However, professional treatment is typically the best way to overcome moderate to severe symptoms.

What might contribute to ADHD?

The exact cause of ADHD isn’t entirely understood, but its risk factors include:

  • Family history of ADHD 
  • Food additives
  • Environmental toxins
  • Illnesses
  • Injuries
  • Issues during pregnancy
  • Premature birth

The best way to minimize the risk of ADHD is to avoid exposure to additives and toxins and adopt healthy habits, but you can’t necessarily avoid ADHD if you have specific risk factors.

How does my specialist diagnose ADHD?

The Body & Mind Consulting experts discuss your symptoms, lifestyle, and medical history to determine which mental health condition you may have. They complete a psychiatric evaluation by asking questions that evaluate your thoughts, mood, emotions, and behaviors.

What are my ADHD treatment options?

Treating ADHD may involve:

Brain wave mapping

Brain wave mapping allows your psychologist to understand the inner workings of your brain to develop an effective treatment plan.

Personalized brainwave synchronization

Brainwave synchronization (Sonal Braincare™) is a therapy that uses neurofeedback to retrain your brain to complete specific functions more effectively.

Eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR is a form of psychotherapy in which you use eye movements to retrain your brain during therapy sessions. 

Emotional freedom technique (EFT)

EFT provides healing from traumatic experiences. This treatment taps on acupressure points (without needles) to release blockages that store emotional energy.


Body & Mind Consulting also offers medication prescriptions that diminish bothersome ADHD symptoms.
