Hyperactivity & Homeopathic Remedies
Hyperactivity is often described as “needing to let off steam” or “needing to get rid of excess energy”. Some children seem to have endless amount of energy and are constantly needing to run and jump, they may find concentrating on tasks very difficult without movement, so may develop habits of fidgeting or constant moving even while sitting or doing an activity.
Finding a Homeopathic Remedy for Hyperactivity
The way each person feels their hyperactivity and the way they cope with their excessive energy will help us define the right homeopathic remedies that can calm their minds and their senses. We need to group all of the symptoms together to find the remedies that most closely match the totality of symptoms. The questions we might ask refer to the way they approach an activity, the way they complete a task and the way they manage a list of tasks.
Look for all of the actions and reactions that happen:
- Excessive talking
- Constantly moving
- Making noises with the mouth
- Inability to concentrate
- Easily distracted
- Wandering whilst talking or listening
- Explosive tempers
- Inability to sit still
- Desire to touch people or things
- Excessive energy
It is often noted that although children find it difficult to concentrate on things that are not of interest, they may have extreme focus on things that are of interest. When playing a game or involved in a screen activity that captures their imagination, it is often difficult to tear them away from the activity.
The symptoms experienced are often distracting for the people around them, but many of the symptoms are frustrating for the sufferer and may be holding them back from achieving their full potential.
When we see a child suddenly able to play with his brother in a calm manner and ask politely for a toy rather than grab it whilst shouting or hitting, we realise that the actions and responses of a child with ADHD are not ones they choose but rather ones which happen to them, almost as if they are not able to process the choices of interaction.
Let me give you some examples of the changes seen after a suitable remedy:
“He’s been able to open his ears when he’s in a tizz about something and allow us to give him an explanation (in the past he would get fixed on his perception and not be willing to listen/hear an alternative)”.
“Hearing the calm words “I’m not finished” when trying to express his thoughts instead of yelling aggressively to get a point across was very out of the ordinary for us but in the best way”.
“She has been super calm, focused and ready to face her day. No crying, frustration, or irritation. This is HUGE for us! This is huge for her!”
