ADHD & Hopwater®

           Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and attention deficit disorder (ADD)

symptoms may begin in childhood and continue into adulthood. ADHD and ADD symptoms, such as

hyperactivity, implulsiveness and inattentiveness, can cause problems at home, school, work, or in

relationships (WebMD).   Despite being the most commonly studied and diagnosed psychiatric disorder

in children and adolescents, the cause in the majority of cases is unknown.    

         According to Ryan D’Agostino in the March 27, 2014 edition of Esquire declares in his title that we

are drugging the American boy (and girl). Should we be drugging our children just for being children?

We are feeding our children a Schedule II drug as defined by the DEA as

having “a high potential for abuse” and "with use potentially leading to

severe psychological or physical dependence." (According to a University of

Michigan study, Adderall is the most abused brand-name drug among high

school seniors.) In addition to stimulants like Ritalin, Adderall, Vyvanse, and

Concerta, Schedule II drugs include cocaine, methamphetamine, Demerol, and OxyContin.


        D’Agostino also reports ”According to manufacturers of ADHD stimulants, they are associated with

sudden death in children who have heart problems, whether those heart problems have been previously

detected or not. They can bring on a bipolar condition in a child who didn't exhibit any symptoms of

such a disorder before taking stimulants. They are associated with "new or

worse aggressive behavior or hostility." They can cause "new psychotic

symptoms (such as hearing voices and believing things that are not true) or

new manic symptoms." They commonly cause noticeable weight loss and

trouble sleeping. In some children, some stimulants can cause the paranoid

feeling that bugs are crawling on them. Facial tics. They can cause children's

eyes to glaze over, their spirits to dampen. One study reported fears of

being harmed by other children and thoughts of suicide.  

         Imagine you have a six-year-old son. A little boy for whom you are

responsible. A little boy you would take a bullet for, a little boy in whom you

search for glimpses of yourself, and hope every day that he will turn out just like you, only better. A little

boy who would do anything to make you happy. Now imagine that little boy—your little boy—alone in

his bed in the night, eyes wide with fear, afraid to move, a frightening and unfamiliar voice echoing in

his head, afraid to call for you. Imagine him shivering because he hasn't eaten all day because he isn't

hungry. His head is pounding. He doesn't know why any of this is happening. 


       Now imagine that he is suffering like this because of a mistake. Because a

doctor examined him for twelve minutes, looked at a questionnaire on which

you had checked some boxes, listened to your brief and vague report that he

seemed to have trouble sitting still in kindergarten, made a diagnosis for

disorder the boy doesn't have, and wrote a prescription for a powerful drug

he doesn't need. If you have a son in America, there is an alarming probability

that this has happened or will happen to you."

(D'Agostino, Ryan. "Drugging the American Boy." Esquire.  27 Mar. 2014. Web.)


       Unfortunately this is happening worldwide and there are a few clinicians who believe that no drugs

should be given for ADHD but they are in the minority. Marketing is powerful, and blockbuster drugs

like Ritalin are big business. Business booms, market share grows when scripts are written, and counter-

cultural doctors and therapists who advocate caution and who believe that diagnoses are made too easily

—doctors and therapists who preach alternatives to drugs—are finding themselves the butt of jokes.


     What should we do? Hopwater® has a sedative effect on the body, encouraging feelings of calm

relaxation. Drinking a bottle or two of Hopwater® daily can have a soothing effect

on the body, allowing for a more tranquil attitude. Hopwater® is a natural,

homeopathic remedy that has no reported side effects and likely safe for most

people (WebMD Side Effects) If you are suffering from ADHD, drink

Hopwater®  regularly, or as needed to help you

relieve feelings of over-activity and inattentiveness.

The hops plant is far more than simply a flavoring for beer. This adaptable

plant is quickly proving itself as useful for a great number of ailments.

Continuous research is constantly digging up even further benefits that

herbal remedies like Hopwater® have to offer to those that drink it (see

Benefits page). We truly hope that you have found this article to be enlightening and sufficient enough

to answer any questions that you may have had in regards to the benefits for those suffering from

ADHD. However, if you still have further inquiries regarding this herbal remedy, please do not hesitate

to contact us and we will be happy to help. Why medicate our children when we don’t have to?
