Hyperactivity is usually manifested as fidgeting or constant moving, wandering, excessive talking, difficulty participating in "quiet" activities such as reading, and similar behaviors. Hyperactivity is not easy to define or diagnose, as what seems like a normal level of activity to one person may seem like excessive energy to another.
Treatment Plan for Hyperactivity
In traditional medicine, hyperactivity can be viewed as a manifestation of heat. This is often due to adrenal weakness, where this organ’s ability to regulate inflammation through cortisol production is impaired. Other factors include one’s constitutional make-up, emotional factors, and dietary factors, though the connection with these have not been proven conclusively. Herbal remedies can include relaxing herbs with a cool nature, adrenal tonics when necessary for general weakness, or systemic heat-clearing herbs.
