Attention Deficit Disorder
or ADD is increasing and no-one really knows why.
Think about those times you
have gone upstairs to get something and by the
time you have got to the top you have forgotten
what it was. Imagine what it might be like to be
like that all the time. Imagine what it might be
like to not be able to sit and watch a TV
programme through from beginning to the end.
Imagine what it might be
like to not really understand what people are
saying to you because by the time they have
finished saying whatever it is, you have lost the
focus and don’t really understand what they
Imagine what it is like to
not be able to finish one thing because you have
just thought that you have to do something else
and then you can’t do that because you have to
do something else.
Imagine what it is like not
to feel part of everything that is going on around
you. To know that you have to do something but not
be in a space where you can concentrate or focus
on what is at hand.

involved or participating because you are
somewhere else in your head and feel left out of

generally the following Bach Flower remedies offer
emotional support to deal with the stress that
these situations cause: Clematis for bringing
focus and attention into the here and now – to
interact in the present moment. Water Violet for
feeling alone and left out of things. Impatiens,
for feelings of fidgetiness, or needing to move
onto to the next thing. White Chestnut to stop
things going round in the mind, which might
overload the focusing process.
We then need to look at
diet, appropriate vitamin and mineral supplements
to support the brain and hormone function. A

morning, proven to aid concentration and focus.
Anti oxidants, to clear up the toxic residues in
our system that clogs our performance. Flax seed
oil rich in omega 3,6,9 - to aid brain function and performance.
Then we need to see what the
underlying core issues may be that underpin this
condition, to decipher when any trauma happened

this state of being.
And the next stage, to
change perceptions and break negative patterns
that trigger these kinds of behaviours in certain
