Children’s behaviour can be affected by emotional and physical issues.

Children’s health: ADHD

Understanding ADHD and children

Children’s behaviour can be affected by emotional and physical issues, or their neurological wiring. Physical problems will often affect a child’s behaviour, and perhaps especially when they are not able to express themselves verbally this may be interpreted as behavioural issues before the root of the behavioural change is discovered.

If changes to a child’s behaviour are observed over a prolonged period, it is advisable to seek professional help, to assist in assessing the root cause of any problems.

Many herbs are suitable for self-care. However if a health condition does not resolve with home remedies we recommend using the information in Herbal Reality along with your health advisors, especially herbal practitioners from the professional associations listed in our Resources page (‘If you want to find a herbalist”). When buying any herbal products, you should choose responsible manufacturers with independently assured quality standards and sustainability practices. Check the label carefully for the appropriate safety and sustainability information.
