Abstract

Yoga is our ancient science. Yoga provides treatment modalities for many diseases without any bad effect on the body. ADHD is a commonest disorder of childhood in which child shows hyperactivity, impulsiveness and inattentiveness that is inappropriate for age. In modern there are some drugs that are used in ADHD but all the drugs have bad effect on the body. Yoga and ayurveda are two treatment modalities that may be used in the management of ADHD without any bad effect on the health. Yoga is a type of therapy that is used without medication. Yoga benefits children with ADHD as it uses asanas (physical posture), surya namaskar, pranayam and deep relaxation techniques to calm the senses decrease hyperactivity. Many studies showed beneficial effect of yoga in relieving the symptoms of ADHD like hyperactivity, impulsiveness and inattentiveness.
