Who Develops ADHD?

Studies have shown that between 5 - 10% of school-aged children develop ADHD. As a parent, you may want to know why some children have ADHD while others do not. If there are certain "types" of children who develop ADHD, then it will be easier to prevent the disorder from appearing completely. But unfortunately, nothing. So is there a way for you to determine if your child is at risk for ADHD? Are there known risk factors for developing the disorder?

Medical journals suggest that there is a strong link between genetics and ADHD. Although scientists have not identified specific genes that cause ADHD, studies show that 75 - 91% of people with ADHD will transmit the disorder to the next two generations. Therefore, if your parents or any of your aunts and uncles are showing hyperactive, impulsive, and unreasonable symptoms, there is a high likelihood of such interruptions being given to your children. But just because the relationship between genetics and ADHD exists doesn't mean that genetics is the only reason. Genetics alone make one vulnerable to the disorder. ADHD itself begins only when certain environmental factors interact with the genetic tendency.

So what's this environmental trigger? The first of these triggers can affect children as early as pregnancy and childbirth. Pregnant women exposed to cigarette smoke, alcohol, mercury leakage from counterfeit amalgam, or other toxic substances are more likely to have children exposed to ADHD and other learning disabilities. A child born through cesarean section rather than vaginal birth is also at high risk for ADHD because the C-section does not activate the primitive neurological reflex of the baby as normal birth. The use of antibiotics, bottle feeding, and snacks can also cause ADHD as they favor the development of the intestinal bacteria that produce toxins and cause stress to the nervous system.

Certain lifestyles and habits also make children more susceptible to ADHD. Children spend a lot of time in the room watching television or playing high-risk video games to develop ADHD. TV does not trigger ADHD per se, but it does prevent children from exercising and exercising their muscles - and healthy muscles are needed for a healthy nervous system. An unhealthy diet made from snacks and sweets can also cause ADHD. Researchers have revealed that children with ADHD suffer from a lack of essential nutrients such as zinc, iron, magnesium, and omega-3 fatty acids because they do not have enough green vegetables and seafood in their diet.

In other words, there are many environmental factors that can cause ADHD in your child, and this is why ADHD medication is an inadequate solution for ADHD. Medication works only by treating symptoms. But if environmental triggers are ignored, the situation will continue. The best treatment for ADHD is not a mind-altering drug with many side effects, but a holistic program consisting of lifestyle changes and creating a healthy mood that will allow your child to develop and deal with the disorder.
