CBD Oil, Chiropractic, and Natural Remedies for Children with ADHD

More parents than ever are wanting to explore alternative forms of healthcare for their children. On a regular basis at The Specific Chiropractic Centers – Lake Country we experience parents who either want to avoid medication or decrease the dosage for their children. There are multiple avenues to look down when it comes to what people view as alternative healthcare. Acupuncture, Chiropractic, Nutrition, CBD Oil, Essential Oils, Hypnosis, and the list keeps going.


Something that has been getting a ton of attention in the alternative world and mainstream media is CBD Oil. Now before you are up in arms about marijuana we need to make it clear that CBD Oil is different. There is no THC or psychoactive properties in CBD Oil, which is the chemical that makes marijuana the drug that it is.


How Does It Work?


CBD has burst onto the scene suddenly with tons of different brands promoting theirs to be the best. We have even been contacted to develop our own if we’d like….we will not be doing this.


But how does CBD Oil work?

It seems like everywhere you look it can help or cure this and that. Researches aren’t 100% certain how it works but there seems to be a tie to the parasympathetic nervous system. This makes sense as a lot of health conditions can be tied to an issue with the nervous system. What’s important to note is that CBD oil isn’t something that will get you resolution to a certain issue. At The Specific Chiropractic Centers we focus on balancing the nervous system long term. We want to make it so you don’t have to keep coming back over and over again. CBD Oil may be something that could help achieve this as well. If you have any questions or comments about this don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
