How Does Our ADHD Treatment Benefit You?

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that develops in childhood and lasts into adulthood, in which a child has trouble concentrating, paying attention and controlling impulsive behavior. The child may be overly active in some cases. Normal symptoms of this condition are: kids day dream a lot, forget or lose things a lot, talk too much, fidget, make careless mistakes, hard to resist temptation, have trouble taking turns, difficulty in socializing, etc. The causes for this condition may be brain injury, exposure to harmful environments during pregnancy, premature delivery, low birth weight, etc.
According to Ayurveda, Vata dosha is responsible for all types of movements in the body, and ADHD is a condition in which there is excess physical and mental activity. Thus, it is the result of vitiation of Vata dosha. In this condition, a kid isn’t able to control Jnanendria (sensory organs) and Karmendriyas (hands and legs) due to aggravation of Vata dosha that affects manovaha srotas, and thus becomes hyperactive.
The treatment for ADHD in Ayurveda involves procedures like deepana, pachana; Strotoshodhana, Medhya rasayana, etc. It is accompanied by an intake of herbs like vacha, ashwagandha, brahmi, guduchi, shankapushpi, ghee, etc. These treatments help in pacifying the effects of Vata dosha, boost digestive fire and digest ama, removing obstruction from channels (manovahastrotas), removal of ama from the body and rejuvenates the nervous system. This line of treatment helps in complete reversal of the condition in a completely holistic way.

  3. Combined presentations: In this condition, the person shows above two presentations at a time.

Treatment principles of ADHD

  • Deepana and Pachana –
    This concept calms the stomach and digests the ama. As a result, it corrects the appetite, removes ama from the channels, and promotes normal nourishing of all seven tissues.
  • Strotoshodhana (cleaning the channels) –
    This affects primarily the channels that conduct our brain activities. The regular flow of doshas is disrupted, resulting in lack of focus, learning disabilities, and poor memory, among other things. Vacha (Acorus calamus), an Ayurvedic herb, aids in the removal of obstructions in channels, particularly manovahastrotas. It clears the channels by digesting ama and allowing normal brain activity due to its penetrating and gastro-enteric properties.
  • Medhya Rasayana –
    Improving Brain Functions Rasayana medications are used to prevent and treat illnesses. They aid in the nourishment of all tissues and the improvement of strength and immunity. Medhya rasayanas are those that focus on mental development and rejuvenation of the nervous system. Memory, learning, focus, and IQ are all improved.
  • Diet-
    In the management of manovyadhis, Ayurveda emphasizes the importance of satwika ahara such as shashtika shali, ghrita, ksheera, and others, which aid to increase sattva guna. Also, aharas with katu, amla rasa, and excessive ruksha should be avoided since they enhance tamo guna and rajo guna. They also have a tendency to vitiate the tridoshas.

ADHD is no longer seen as a disability. Instead, as a unique skill. Because autistic children require special attention and care, ADHD is not merely an illness that affects a single person or family; society plays a significant role in its management. The most crucial aspect is social awareness. Ayurveda, with its holistic and sincere approach, offers fresh hope in the treatment of ASD. A combination of panchakarma treatments, medhya aushadhi, yoga, and diets will significantly enhance the quality of life of afflicted youngsters.


This includes both preventative and therapeutic measures.

    Preventive measures:

Ayurveda believes that preventing disease is more essential than healing it. Prevention of ADHD can be accomplished at three stages: before consumption, during pregnancy, and after birth.

Detoxification of shareera by panchakarma chikithsa, rasayana seva, manovikara niyanthrana (mind control) and other methods are used to prevent consumption. Panchakarma aids in the removal of bodily pollutants (vitiated dosha). Renewal of healthy tissues happens as a result of rasayana chikitsa, which aids in the creation of healthy sperm and ovum.

Pregnancy prevention includes a healthy diet and exercises for the mother. During this time, manovikara niyanthrana (controlling undesirable feelings) is very vital.

    Therapeutic measures:


Internal and exterior therapy are included. Sroto shodhana, ghritha sevana, and medhya rasayana are examples of internal treatments. Nasya, abhyanga, shirodhara, shiropichu, dhoomapana, thala, and other external treatments are significant in the treatment of ADHD. Medhya rasayana seva is the most significant internal medicine.


Spiritual well-being is also important for managing manovikaras, according to Ayurveda.


It refers to therapies that boost a person's sattva guna. Yoga and pranayama are beneficial to both physical and mental wellness. Yoga treatment can promote social interaction while also improving CNS function.

The manovaha srotas are affected by ADHD, a vata dosha-predominant behavioral condition. As a result, treatment that balances the dosha, enhances and normalizes brain functions including memory, intellect, focus, learning capacity, and speech development, among others, can be useful in treating attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

ADHD Treatment, Naturally

Root Cause Treatment

“The ayurvedic approach of disease looks for the root cause and not merely the symptoms. The basic principles of Ayurveda consider an individual human a specific identity and hence his treatment giving importance to the treatment of the patient rather than the treatment of the disease.”

Wisdom of Ayurveda

“Since Ayurveda focuses on the root-cause of the disease, it effectively reduces the risk of severe health complications arising out of the untreated underlying cause. Patients who complete their Ayurveda treatment have a reduced risk of health complications later.”

More Than Just Medicines

"Heal your body naturally with 5000-year-old knowledge of Ayurveda and Modern Science. From its authenticity, structured approach and personalisation play a very important role in complementing the effect of medicines as well as sustaining the benefit of treatment after the medicines have ended."
