Yes! There are lots of things that could help. First of all a sensory diet so lots of exercise religiously. Second diet. I suggest cutting out all dairy, gluten, food dyes, preservatives, additives, nitrates, and anything not natural. Thirdly vitamin supplementation. Lots of vitamin D. Like 6,000 IU of vitamin d3 & large amounts of vitamin b12. Also calcium magnesium are very helpful for hyperactivity as are Epsom salt baths. I suggest a non dairy Probiotics with a lot of strains and cultures. I take one by natures bounty with 10 different strains and 20 billion cultures. Plus a multi vitamin. Also cutting out carbs and starches can help.

I'd also look up sensory processing disorder to see if that's the root cause of the ADHD symptoms. It typically is and Drs don't look for the actual cause of ADHD they just slap a label and give out meds. Learning how your body processes sensory information differently and how you can help it yourself by learning techniques and coping skills like deep pressure, massage, exercise, etc etc. It can really help. If you want more info on SPD let me know and I can give you a link.
