When you as a parent hear your child has been diagnosed with ADD, ADHD or any other condition (e.g. autism, dyslexia etc.), you feel your world has come to an end. The dreams you had for your child are shattered and replaced by a nightmare. This doesn’t have to be like that.
If you want to address the challenge you are facing, it is important to understand what the condition is all about, So that it becomes easier to find a drug-free solution.
Let’s explore ADD and ADHD. People with this condition struggle with concentration. They are easily distracted by every little sound or movement and they often are reactive which leads to aggressive behavior. Dr Carla Hannaford, author of the book Smart Moves, Why Learning Is Not All In Your Head., calls people with ADD and ADHD, SOHOH people. Stressed Out Survival Orientated Humans. The ADD and ADHD symptoms are very similar as stress symptoms. If we look at the autism scale and the inability to communicate, they are also signs of stress, In my survey of people with ADD- ADHD and other learning difficulties, all of them have high anxiety levels.
Did you know that when we are stressed, we go into survival mode? Large parts of the brain switch off and our senses are heightened to pick up any possible danger. It becomes physiologically impossible to concentrate. We have lost access to our higher brain power up to 85%, according to Dr Hannaford. When we identify what causes the stress and resolve it, we bring calmness back in the life of the person with ADD and ADHD.
In my practice I have seen three major contributors to the stress in people with ADD, ADHD and other learning difficulties
1. Unresolved trauma plays a huge role in creating stress. There are many standard medical procedures that have caused huge trauma. These include, planned C-section, Being put in an incubator after birth and more. To undo this trauma does NOT have to take years of psychotherapy. Many of our clients have been helped in 2-3 sessions. This makes it cost effective, even if our services are not covered by medical aid. With many medical aids, you often still need to pay for some of the psychotherapy sessions yourself.
3. Lack of internal organisation, which can be resolved with Building Blocks Activities or by doing Brain Gym.
Did you know that a number of people are incorrectly labeled ADD or ADHD, because they are kinestetic learners. This means that they literally have to move in order to access their brain for learning. They seem restless and then they are labeled as ADD or ADH.

No serious athlete would consider training or participating in a competition without warming up their body. It prevents injuries and increases performance. Have you ever warmed up your brain before learning? If you don’t you wont pull a nerve or something, but you are likely to get emotional damage. When the brain is “cold” and stressed, you are more likely to perceive situations as a threat, resulting in us overreacting. By warming up the brain with PACE from Brain Gym® daily, we can function more effectively.
