Herbs for ADHD, Cognition, and Focus Intensive

Welcome to The Herbarium’s intensive on attention deficit/ hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Herbs for ADHD, Cognition, and Focus with herbalist Maria Noël Groves! There are three sessions to this series—three videos each accompanied by written content.

In the first session, Maria provides a summary of ADHD including symptoms, causes, brain function, commonly prescribed medications, an overview of supportive, non-herbal approaches, and an introduction to cognitive herbs.

The second session reviews an herbal materia medica (including kid-friendly herbs) to support cognitive wellbeing.

In the third and final session, Maria provides an herb overview chart and reviews formulation tips, how to put together a protocol, and case studies.

By the end of this intensive, students will gain a better understanding of ADHD and the herbs, nutrition, and lifestyle suggestions that can be incorporated in clinical practice to support people with this condition.
