Focus Here and Now: Best For ADHD, Nootropics, & Brain Health
Focus Here and Now: About Me, ADHD, Nootropics, Brain Foods, and Overall Brain Health
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder can be frustrating and debilitating for ADHD children, teens, adults, and their loved ones. Years of research and science have produced traditional and also alternative treatments for ADD and ADHD.
Unfortunately, many people still don't understand that those struggling with the disorder would not say, act, and/or behave a certain way if it wasn't for ADHD. Some people will not even classify it as a “real” disorder, which is mainly due to their ignorance and misunderstandings about the disorder. ADHD has been proven to be a real condition. ADHD is caused by a chemical imbalance of neurotransmitters in the brain. The closer we get to understanding what causes ADHD, the closer we may get to finding a cure for it.
Explaining the feelings and emotions of ADHD to others can be very difficult. Many of us struggle with what may seem like basic tasks and skills. People with ADHD are highly misunderstood and many times find a lack of sympathy from others for ADHD.

My ADHD Mission
I am not a doctor nor claim to be one but I have dedicated my life to creating this website and conducting the proper research and interviews with qualified professionals to confidently write about it. Plus, I have lived with ADHD my entire life. Therefore, I am sharing a large part of myself with all of you, too! I wouldn't be me if it weren't for ADHD!
Focus Here and Now is not only for ADHD. Since the inception of the site, nearly five years ago, we have significantly expanded the information, resources, and tools that we provide in order to help an even larger audience of people.
We learned that the vast majority of people throughout the world are interested in improving and/or even enhancing cognitive functioning in one way or another. This may be the desire or need to improve focus, concentration, attention, memory, learning capabilities, reducing stress and anxiety, preventing cognitive decline, promoting overall brain health, and much more!
About me, personally…
My name is Howie and like you or someone close to you, I have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, also known as ADHD.
After a lot of trial and error and personal struggles, I spent years researching and testing various alternative treatments for ADHD.
I've lived with it for my entire life. However, it was not until I learned how to truly manage it that I was able to get control of my life.
I had to study at least 5 times harder in high school and college to achieve the same grades that others were able to get in half the time. My young professional life was not easy, either.
I always had a great drive and passion, but sometimes it was just so difficult to stay the course because my mind would wander so quickly.
I had so many great ideas, so many things I wanted to do and it was very difficult to take it one step at a time and stay focused on the task at hand. Many of these problems wouldn't exist if it wasn't for ADHD.
ADHD can be frustrating
ADHD and ADD can be brutal and sometimes left me feeling hopeless. It can be an extremely frustrating and unproductive feeling at times.
I went through multiple doctors and was on all of the prescription medications, at one point or another. I have been on Adderall, Ritalin, Concerta, etc. Sure, they work at making you focus. They work on making you focus so much time and energy on one thing, like a page in a book, that you spend about 2 hours getting through three pages. They are jam-packed with terrible side effects and turned me into a zombie. Those prescriptions didn't make me “focus better,” but instead, they took the “me” right out of “me.”
I didn't want to go on using medications that made me feel sick and virtually “zombified” me from who I am. That is why I started investigating various alternative treatments for ADHD.
The bottom line is that there are other treatments ADHD adults are using to successfully manage their ADHD disorder.
The Intent and Mission of Focus Here and Now
I have tried so many different things and have gone through the trial and error period, discovering the things that work and the things that simply, do not work.
