ADD – Addiction Problems & Solutions

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a behavioral disorder that affects up to 1 in 20 children in the USA. The predominance of American research into this disorder over the past 40 years has led to the impression that ADHD is largely an American disorder and is much less prevalent elsewhere. While generally thought to be genetic, the causes of ADHD are not fully understood by science and many think it is the result of different brain structure. Research suggests that the brains of people with ADHD might be larger or smaller in different areas, causing it to function differently. Although ADHD can affect anyone, those who were born prematurely, have epilepsy, or who suffered brain damage while in the womb are at the greatest risk. Typically diagnosed in early childhood, ADHD can manifest in adulthood, but it is usually thought to have been present early on and masked by prospective influences.

There are many tell-tale signs for diagnosing ADHD, but the most occurring symptom is hyper-activity. Hyper-activity is defined by the basis of not being able to sit still. This could translate as excessive talking, fidgeting, or an inability to concentrate. Another common symptom of ADHD is impulsiveness, which manifests as constantly interrupting or acting without thinking. These symptoms can make it very difficult for an individual with ADHD to focus, which is why many people are turning to prescription drugs like Adderall or Ritalin, but these drugs come with their own side effects. With most of the prescription medication for ADHD being stimulants, the brain becomes dependent on the dopamine rush and overtime loses its ability to create its own. This creates an entirely new problem and has been linked to the rising addiction rates. 

Whether it’s a problem with alcohol, Opioids, Cocaine, or any other substance, addiction kills thousands of Americans every year and impacts millions of lives. Addiction, or substance use disorder (SUD), is a chronic mental health condition that often affects those with ADHD. With a habit of hyper-activity and impulsivity, people with ADHD are always looking for something to stimulate their brain. This constant need for stimulation causes individuals to seek out substances and often abuse them. While these drugs might offer a quick fix, the best whole health treatment is plant medicine.

Let’s Be Clear (Addiction And The Problem With Your Mind)

When most people think of pain treatment, they picture someone laying in a hospital bed in sheer agony. But the truth is, pain is relative and is sometimes not as obvious to detect. Unlike physical pain, mental or emotional pain is a lot more elusive and is not subject to a specific location in the body, allowing it the potential to be even more detrimental if untreated. It is important to recognize the signs of emotional pain affecting whole health before they become unmanageable. Some of these symptoms include isolation from others, poor self care or risky behavior, chronic headaches, feeling heavy, and even depression. Unfortunately, with so many factors affecting our whole health, more people are relying on substances as a short term solution rather than eliminating the root of the problem for long term gratification.

Alcohol is the most widely abused substance in the US, yet alcoholism is often left untreated. An addiction to alcohol can be detrimental to a person’s physical, mental, and social well-being. The 2021 State of Mental Health in America report confirms the trend that mental health in the U.S. continues to get worse. With many of our states ill-prepared to handle this crisis, policymakers at every level of government need to act immediately. With almost no time to spare, we need to take our whole health into our own hands.

In VoiceAmerica’s new hit podcast series Make America Healthy, host Beth Shaw addresses problems, like alcohol abuse in America, and works through solutions alongside her expert guests. In her episode titled “Let’s Be Clear,” Beth invites trauma healing specialists Kelly Gardner and Elizabeth Falcone to provide emotional support tools to overcome substance abuse and gain a closer mind-heart connection. Elizabeth Falcone recommends starting by reflecting inward to address any problems affecting your mental health, then setting short term goals to eliminate the root of these problems. By increasing your awareness, you will gain clearer vision on how to achieve your whole health goals.  

Founder and CEO of YogaFit WorldWide, the world’s largest yoga training school, Beth Shaw has been a guiding light in whole health for over 25 years. In her latest book, Healing Trauma With Yoga & Mind-Body Techniques, Beth provides tools and techniques drawn from her work as a recovery and health coach. She offers a deep understanding of the physiological, psychological and emotional changes brought on by trauma and depression, with techniques to survive and thrive through these sometimes debilitating conditions. 

For those suffering from any physical or emotional pain, the best results are achieved through an internal journey of meditation and yoga practices.

Latest Trends in Supplements

 Plant medicine has been utilized worldwide for thousands of years. Plants have essential nutrients that you cannot get from other foods. The vitamins and minerals, phytochemicals, and antioxidants in plants help keep your cells healthy and your body in balance so that your immune system can function at its best. Unlike industrial medicine, plant medicine is a more healthy and natural way of preventing and fighting off diseases.

With grocery stores overflowing with GMOs and produce lacking in nutrition, maintaining a healthy lifestyle through diet alone seems almost impossible. Due to the increase in malnutrition nationwide, dietary supplements and plant medicine are more popular than ever. But with so many different brands and trends, it can be difficult to decipher what’s right for you. Instead of undergoing your own trial and error process, let the experts lead the way!

In the new hit podcast Make America Healthy, featured on VoiceAmerica, Beth Shaw and her special guest discuss the top health hacks and dietary supplements trending around the world today. In her episode titled The Latest Trends In Supplements, Beth welcomes Julian Mitchell, Co-Founder of Life Cykel, and Catharine Arnston, Founder of EnergyBits, as they talk about their new plant-based supplements, vitamins, and more! 

As the founder and CEO of YogaFit WorldWide, the world’s largest yoga training school, Beth Shaw, is dedicated to creating a healthier world for generations to come. Always looking for new dietary supplements to incorporate into her health routines, Beth was excited to hear about all the amazing health benefits included in algae and decided to try EnergyBits’ supplements for herself. After taking their VitalityBits for just one week, Beth was delighted to notice the increase in energy and overall vitality for life that she gained. Using the perfect combination of two different types of algae, spirulina and chlorella, VitalityBits offers vast amounts of nutrition, beauty, and energy benefits that you are unlikely to receive from a traditional diet. Being that algae is the most alkaline, chlorophyll, and protein rich food in the world; adding it to your daily supplement routine is an easy and effective way of helping you reach your health goals. 

A huge fan of plant medicine and the healing powers of mushrooms, Beth Shaw was excited to hear from Julian Mitchell on the benefits of Life Cykel’s supplements. One of their most popular dietary supplements, Lion’s Mane Liquid Extract, provides consumers with a cognitive upgrade in the areas of focus, memory, articulation, mental clarity, and creativity. While you can enjoy lion’s mane mushrooms eaten raw, dried, cooked, or steeped for tea; Life Cykel’s liquid extract maximizes the health benefits of these mushrooms and is as simple as taking a few drops under your tongue or drinking it in water.
