How Exercise Helps In An Adhd Patient
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Medications like drugs, anti depressants and some psychoactive drugs may cure the patient's inattentive and hyperactive symptoms. At the same time, they can produce side and negative effects that can make the patient's condition even worse and may cause any other complications. Research and studies though have proven that healthy lifestyle, proper diet and exercise can cure the symptoms of the patient.

At the same time, research and studies have proven to the public that exercise is far more effective than taking anti depressants. Exercise is more recommended because it is natural and presents less or even none at all side and negative effects. A number of patients diagnosed with ADHD have been observed under different variables and conditions. One is an exercise alone treatment, the other is exercise with anti depressant and the last is anti depressant and medication. After thorough observation, examination and cross examination, it has been found out that patients who only consider exercise in treating their symptoms had the best result.

With regard to the issue of exercise, doctors and health specialists affirm that all kinds of exercise may fit all types of patients depending on whether their body can endure the exercise process. Exercise does not only give the patient a healthy lifestyle but also is a therapy where in they can involve themselves in certain group of peers where they can adjust to their living and therefore shift their inattentive and hyperactive symptoms to their social life. When doing the walk or jog, they are usually accompanied by their buds that can be the outlet of their emotional problems caused by their disorder. They will be able to find someone who can empathize with them. This can somehow make them feel light and better. A 20 to 30 minute walk or jog can help the patients’ condition.

Cases happen when children undergo therapies and medications but do not feel better. Instead, their parents may result to introducing them to various exercise and activities like biking. Results came when their inattentive and hyperactive symptoms have been cured because of biking and other activities which they also find fun in doing so.

Though changing treatment from medication to therapy or exercise will result positively, it is not very much advisable to have a sudden change or shift of treatment. The patients’ attending physician must first be consulted before doing any actions. The doctor’s recommendation and prescription must importantly be considered.

I was diagnosed with ADHD a couple of years back. I am now in my mid 40's. Typical life has happened to me as in no career direction always jumping from one job to the next etc etc... They prescribed a drug called "Ritalin" to me. This is a amphetamine based drug but for ADHD sufferers there is no "Speed" effect. I can confirm this is true and in fact what this drug did was to slow my thought process down to such a degree I felt as if my whole personality had changed so I reverted back to my life long friend of being ADHD. As I have recently stopped smoking it shall be interesting to note if exercise which I am about to take up helps my ADHD. Interesting article. Thanks. Jason
