Key terms: inattentive, impulsive, hyperactive, energetic, restless, disorganized, on the go
Tiggers Like to Bounce... Bouncin' is What Tiggers Do Best! We call this type of ADHD "Tigger Type." This type of ADHD reminds us of Tigger from the Winnie the Pooh stories. Classic ADHD is characterized by Inattention, Impulsivity, Hyperactivity, Restlessness, and Disorganization. When you think about someone who has Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, this is the "classic" picture of an ADHD child that you think of.
Those with this type of ADHD are often seen as being easily distracted, implusive, and bouncy. They can have lots of energy and are often described as hyperactive. They cannot sit still very long, which is a problem in the classroom and in some work situations, and they are often figety. They often talk a lot, interrupt others impulsively, and can be loud. They often act or speak without thinking first, which is awkward in social situations and can get them in trouble. They often have trouble waiting their turns in games, or waiting in lines. Like Tigger, they like to bounce...

ADHD Brain : Impulsive-Hyperactive Type
This Impulsive-Hyperactive or "Tigger Type" ADHD is the result of UNDERACTIVITY in the Prefrontal Cortex, both when the brain is at rest, and when the brain is performing tasks that require concentration. It is this front part of the brain that helps us with self-control, inhibition, and paying attention to our situation.
This classic type of ADHD is most often seen in males, and is the type of ADHD most often referred to clinics for treatment.

Treatment Strategies for "Tigger Type ADHD"
It is important to use the eating program even if you are using other interventions, such as medications, EEG biofeedback training, or a combination of the nutraceuticals ATTEND, EXTRESS, and MEMORIN. Each of these interventions can be very helpful, and combined with the eating program can make a "day and night" difference. Remember, no matter how effective your intervention may be, if you are eating junk foods you will not get as many benefits from your treatment interventions.
We are not opposed to medications for ADHD. They can help a lot of people when prescribed correctly - and the right medication is given to the right individual at the right dose. But if you have the time, we recommend that you give the ADHD eating program, and Attend, Extress, and Memorin, which are over the counter nutraceuticals, at least a 30 to 60 day trial first before beginning medications. They may be all that you need, and they may have few or no side-effects to worry about.

The YES Omega Oils are the finest available. We would recommend these to everyone, with or without ADHD. And since there are studies that implicate deficiencies of Essential Fatty Acids as contributing to ADHD symptoms, we strongly recommend that children, teens, and adults take EFA supplements (Omega Oils). These Oils are very effective, and very safe as they are made from plant sources (they contain no mercury from fish sources), and they are made in the proper ratio of O3s to O6s. These omega oils are excellent for heart health, immune function, hair, nails, eyes, brain function, and more.
