Attention Deficit Hypertension Disorder (ADHD) & Our Targeted Solution!

Updated: Jul 1

Much of the information on ADHD is derived from National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH).


WHAT IS IT?

ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder that impacts an individual's ability to focus, sit still, and control behaviors and emotions. It can be identified through an ongoing pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity-impulsivity that interferes with functioning or development. It is often diagnosed in childhood, but many people aren’t diagnosed until adulthood. It can look different depending on the developmental stage an individual is at. It can also look different in males and females.


3 TYPES OF ADHD PRESENTATION

  1. Predominantly inattentive: An individual may have trouble staying on a task, staying focused, and/or staying organized, and these issues are not due to lack of comprehension.

  2. Predominantly hyperactive-impulsive: An individual may seem to move around constantly, fidget, or talk excessively, including in situations when it is not appropriate.

CAUSES

Currently, causes and risk factors for ADHD are unknown, but research implies that an individual’s genetics play an important role. Some other possible risk factors include:

  • Brain injury

  • Exposure to environmental risks (lead, other heavy metals) during pregnancy or at a young age

  • Alcohol/tobacco use during pregnancy

  • Premature delivery

  • Low birth weight

  • Oculomotor control deficiencies

  • Developmental disorders


SIGNS & SYMPTOMS IN MALE ADOLESCENTS 

  • Difficulty engaging in quiet or seated activities

  • Talking too much/too fast

  • Fidgeting, squirming, restlessness

  • Leaving seat, despite being expected to remain seated

  • Blurting out responses

  • Inability to wait turn

  • Seeming to be “on-the-go” or “driven by a motor”

  • Interrupting conversations

  • Running around/climbing during inappropriate times

  • Easily distracted

  • unorganized

 

SIGNS & SYMPTOMS IN FEMALE ADOLESCENTS 

  • Inattention or distractibility

  • Restless energy

  • Talking too much/too fast

  • Forgetfulness, misplacing items

  • Careless mistakes

THE BBRS INDIVIDUALIZED TARGETED APROACH

Our first step to identify ADHD solutions is always to identify which regions of the brain are functioning out of balance. Some regions may be under performing and others may be over performing. we know that the Dorsolateral Prefrontal Cortex is critical for executive function and that the Cerebellum allows your brain to perform better and faster, but we can't just activate those two regions and expect the best. It is vital to begin by calibrating foundational systems such as the Visual, Vestibular and Somatosensory systems together.


Step One: Restoring the brains foundation first with our Gravity Rest Method will provide the best chance to succeed with the subsequent targeted therapeutic applications.


Step Two: Balancing the right and left hemispheres of the brain.


Step Three: Building endurance in the cerebellum and the Dorsolateral Prefrontal Cortex with specialized eye movement training applications such as the Focus Builder App and RightEye biofeedback exercises.


Step Four: Accelerate the brain's healing response with Pulse PEMF therapy on the brain and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.


Proper diet and lifestyle recommendations will enhance the healing process to ensure the 3 non-negotiables are not interfering with progress. The 3 non-negotiables

are Sleep, Pooping, and Balance Blood Sugar.
