Attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, is one of childhood's most common neurodevelopmental disorders. It is usually first diagnosed in childhood and often lasts into adulthood. ADHD is a chronic condition including attention difficulty, hyperactivity, and impulsiveness. ADHD is a genetic and neurobiological disorder in which an imbalanced brain results in imbalanced behavior. Despite the rise in ADHD prevalence, recent reports illustrate how conventional treatment approaches fail to correct a poorly understood disorder. This presentation will overview augmented traditional approaches for ADHD. This webinar will review how commonly overlooked nutrient deficiencies can exacerbate behavioral symptoms and impede the therapeutic effect of pharmacological treatment. This presentation will explore how to test for and correct nutritional deficiencies commonly seen in ADHD, including Zinc, Copper, and oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs). Explore a functional treatment model for ADHD emphasizing biochemical mechanisms and correction of nutritional imbalance to improve patient outcomes in this webinar by ADHD expert and author, Dr. James Greenblatt.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Participants will be able to describe the root causes of ADHD and how they are addressed with the functional medicine approach.
  2. Participants will understand the relationships between ADHD symptoms and nutrient deficiencies, including Zinc, Copper, and OPCs.
  3. Participants will be able to implement nutritional augmentation strategies to minimize the side effects of commonly prescribed medications for ADHD and enhance outcomes.
