Approach of Ayurveda in Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder: A Single Case Study

Meenakshi silswal, Himani Yadav, Pretya Juyal, Parul Sharma


ADHD is one of the most common neurobehavioral disorder of childhood and often lasts into adulthood. Children with ADHD may have trouble paying behaviours (may act without thinking about what the result will be) or be overly active. It is normal for children to have trouble focusing and behaving at one time or another. However, children with ADHD do not just grow out of these behaviours. The cause and risk factors for ADHD are unknown, but current research shows that genetics plays an important role. Ayurvedic treatment with therapies aimed at improving brain function, enhance attention and mind calmness along with behavioural therapy, can be very helpful in ADHD
