Does inability to focus, poor time management skills, impulsiveness or a problem with prioritizing impact your (or your child’s) daily life? ADHD may be the culprit. While it’s often viewed as a behavioral condition, ADHD is actually a neurobehavioral disorder. This means there’s a brain chemistry imbalance that impairs brain function.
Using The Infinity Way™, we get to the root of your ADHD symptoms with a personalized wellness plan. Our functional medicine doctors take your unique medical history and ADHD symptoms into account to create the most effective plan for you.
Like many conditions, especially those that involve brain chemistry, ADHD can present differently for everyone. It can affect a person’s cognition, behavior and mood, or a combination.
The most common ADHD symptoms we see and support are:
- Disorganization and problems prioritizing
- Impulsiveness, excessive activity or restlessness
- Poor time management skills
- Trouble multitasking
- Frequent mood swings
- Poor planning
- Problems focusing, following through or completing a task
- Low frustration tolerance
- Trouble coping with stress

Causes of ADHD and ADHD Testing
ADHD can often have multiple causes like genetics, environmental toxins, poor gut health, food intolerances and poor diet. These sources cause an imbalance of specific neurotransmitters, the brain’s chemical messengers, and alter the way information is communicated through the brain.
ADHD is a complicated diagnosis. The ADHD symptoms outlined in the section above closely resemble symptoms of other issues like:
- Mood disorders
- Sleep disorders
- Hormonal imbalances
- Hearing or vision issues
If you receive an ADHD diagnosis, our functional medicine doctors will offer testing options to find the core root cause as part of The Infinity Way™. Then, we work together to help your personal ADHD experience.

ADHD In Adults
ADHD is often not considered in adults because it’s assumed symptoms would have been discovered earlier in your life. Adults often have inattentive ADHD instead of the hyperactive symptoms and show more noticeable impairment with executive brain functions like memory, decision making, and the ability to complete tasks.
We now know that adults with undiagnosed ADHD have often just become very good at covering for their symptoms, but it takes a mental and physical toll, and can sometimes lead to anxiety and depression.
As an adult, it’s more likely that you’ll be treated for anxiety or depression and a proper diagnosis of ADHD will go unaddressed.

ADHD In Children
ADHD presents differently in children than it does in adults. Because children have a limited vocabulary to express how they feel and ability to understand why their behavior is unacceptable, they may act out when they become frustrated or angry.
Frequent reprimands, poor grades and the inability to adhere to social norms can make kids’ social relationships hard to maintain and lead to mood swings, depression, anxiety, boredom and irritability.
This is why poor behavior and learning disabilities are often associated with children who have ADHD. It’s important to know that a brain chemistry imbalance is at play, like with ADHD in adults.
