Sugar Elimination: Sugar is a stimulant and itself may contribute to the symptoms of ADHD. You could try eliminating sugar from your diet for three weeks and see if you notice a difference. There are herbal supplements such as ashwaganda and rhodiola that are suggested as overall anti-stress formulas but these like all medications are best taken under medical supervision. A Functional Medicine doctor may be helpful.
