A holistic and integrative management system includes healthy change, supplementation, washing, and treatment of environmental toxic substances and toxic products and services from the home.

A 2010 study was conducted to analyze the results of chiropractic treatment of ADHA. in the research all patients were men, ranging in age from nine to 13 years. The scientists used a 15-item parent and teacher ADHD survey and the responses to chiropractic care were checked. In this study patients improved.
