Acupressure and Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)

Let's consider an aspect from the world of the mind. Many researchers believe that inferior diet and poor blood circulation to the brain, cause a large majority of mental problems. Attention deficit disorders and violent behavior, in adolescents and adults,
has been treated and remedied through proper diet and thinning of the blood. And, it can all be done without any numbing or dumbing down.

If you have blood pressure, or other blood related problems, diet and exercise are a good place to start. But, if you've been there, done that and still have problems, another remedy maybe acupuncture. One of the problems with acupuncture, for some people, is the puncture part. The other problem is in order to make it work, you have to know exactly where to make the puncture. An option is acupuncture's sibling, acupressure. Acupressure is something you can do yourself and don't have to have a laser sight to hit the mark. You do have to press hard at times because many of the acupoints are fairly deep in the skin.

Someone 4' 11' isn't going to have an acupoint in exactly the same place as someone who's 7' 2". So, just find the general location and feel around. If there's a problem, there'll also be a tender spot. The tender spot is an indication of an energy blockage. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the originators of acupuncture, springtime is the optimum time of year for treating the blood and liver.
