Treating Attention Deficit Disorder Without Ritalin
The book Getting Rid of Ritalin, written by Robert W. Hill, Ph.D. and Eduardo Castro, M.D., details how neurofeedback therapy can help individuals coping with ADD successfully improve brain function without the need for medication. The authors explore how neurofeedback works to unlock the individual’s ability to learn what different states of focus “feel like” so that they can self-regulate in the way that best optimizes their brain function and performance. According to the authors, this not only improves the brain’s cognitive function, but also boosts overall physical health, such as the cardiovascular, immune and gastrointestinal systems — in other words, unlocking the individual’s ability to help the body heal itself. While it’s not a cure-all, neurofeedback can be incredibly beneficial for individuals struggling with ADD.
