“Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) has gradually gained public attention over the past decade. The focus of attention is mainly on the brain level, with major studies on brain waves,etc. However, in addition to poor concentration, hyperactivity or impulsivity in behavior, 70% of the children in the clinical setting have a fear of heat, irregular bowel movements, sweaty palms and inexplicable restlessness, and most of them are accompanied by nose allergies, nasal congestion or asthma, and even sleep convulsions and sleepwalking in their sleep. However, it may not be easy to observe, and can usually be felt by touching directly, and of course, there are also manifestations such as nocturia. Chinese medicine practitioners check the symptoms from the point of view of the syndrome, including spleen-lung qi deficiency, liver-kidney deficiency, heart-spleen deficiency, liver-wind internal movement and stomach-heat type, and so on. Because the treatment of hyperactivity disorder in children with western medicine is usually accompanied by side effects such as insomnia or loss of appetite, so in the bedside often receive parents seeking help.

Children are always energetic, often playing  happily, which is also pleasing. For some parents, if their child is overly active, concentration is not focused, emotional instability, it is inevitable to worry about whether it is suffering from pediatric hyperactivity disorder, as to whether it is pediatric hyperactivity disorder, it is necessary to go through further diagnosis to determine.


The causes of ADHD are many and varied. In addition to the physiological need to regain balance, there may also be an internal desire to attract the attention of family members through these movements.


In addition to treatments such as herbs, acupuncture, and bio-kinetic head-seeing therapy, pediatric ADHD also requires a healthy diet that reduces fried and sweet foods. Parents who are patient with their children in an integrated approach to treatment will help their children slowly regain their focus.
