Many claims that Adhd can be treated and there are various methods of treatments that will improve the ADHD of your child. Some even claim that the lesser-known medicine such as alternative treatments is healthier or more effective than medicines.
Meanwhile, it hasn’t been enough evidence about the potency of alternative treatments is that they did not have the same kind of medical analysis or research as the drugs used by physicians to treat ADHD, such as methylphenidate. There have been arguments that alternative therapy manufacturers make may be the best kind of treatment. But there is evidence of the safety of such treatments. Therefore, studies published in medical journals must follow certain requirements before they are used by the doctors to make decisions.

If you want to go for alternative medicine, you need to consult a doctor as there might not be safe before trying any alternative ADHD treatment.
