ADHD: A false paradigm projected onto the minds of a generation

Vatic Note:   Well, finally someone of note and credentials is saying what I have been saying for 20 years now.   If I had lived as a child today, I would have been diagnosed with ADHD and drugged.   Then I would never have done 30 years of building, creating and running businesses and then selling them, like I have done.  As a kid, I was bright as heck, but unmanageable under normal conditions.   It meant a teacher had to figure out how to deal with me.  I was lucky.  My third grade teacher did the right thing. 

She figure out I was done with my work before the other kids and so I would bug the other kids and get myself in trouble.  She figured out how to stop it,  which took some effort of "thinking" on her part.  When I was finished she put me helping the other students who were having trouble.  It worked.  My grades in conduct went from D's and F's up to the B category, but during all that time, my academic grades were all A's.  See the problem? 

I also got a masters degree, and worked as one of the first female legislative analysts in the House of Reps in Washington state.   A job which has contributed greatly to my task here and now in doing this work in exposing the evil that is pervading our nation and the globe.  "There, but for the grace of God, go I".  I think about that all the time and its why I continually rag on ADHD.  We did a blog proving it was a fabricated disease done by the national association of Psychiatrists who should all be thrown in jail for it. 

Adults that I know today who were put on Ritalin as kids are now recovering drug addicts from illegal drug use.  They explained to me that once they were taken off the drugs at 18, they did not feel normal.   Their own chemical development was inhibited by the introduction of manufactured non-biological chemicals.  So they never got to develop naturally.   To feel normal they ended up turning to illegal drugs and that is how the BUSH family got rich. 

I swear I think that is why they promote ADHD in the kHAZAR BANKER FOREIGN OCCUPIED FEDERALLY CONTROLLED SCHOOLS.  We need to turn our schools back over to local control with local admins,  parents and teachers involved in the process.  When it was like that we were #2 IN THE WORLD IN EDUCATION LEVEL.  Now we are dead last in the world.   Don't you think these drugs and federal interference has created this problem????  WE, THE PEOPLE, CAN CHANGE THAT AROUND.

Many of those drugged as children are now too far gone to function properly as adults.  That is a suable offence, in fact, its a prosecutable offense.  Not that anything resembling "Justice" would ever be upheld by this foreign occupied khazar banker controlled government.  If it was, they would all be in jail.... and all these kids would be free of the chemical poisoning that they have suffered and has cost them a decent and free life based on their true normal condition.

This is one of those where I should have said "DON'T GET ME STARTED" . 

ADHD: A false paradigm projected onto the minds of a generation 
by Lance Johnson,  Natural News,  March 2, 2014

(NaturalNews) In today's healthcare climate, where prescription drug use has multiplied, it's becoming increasingly important to question medical professionals on the diagnoses they dish out.

It's equally important to question one's own belief in pharmacology as the solution to the health problems we face today. We must question the labels that we place on ourselves and on our kids. (VN:  yes and we need to confirm that the medical personnel you are relying on for treatment are not receiving compensation for such diagnosis and drug prescriptions.  We know for a fact that has been the case in the past and we must make sure it stops, NOW and forever.)

One in nine children now labeled with ADHD

A very misleading paradigm has been imposed on the minds of the public and has been facilitated through the Western medical institution in the past three decades. This misleading mindset is leading many children to be labeled with ADHD, which stands for "attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder." This fabricated "disorder" has morphed into a pill-popping craze in the 21st century, and it is addicting more and more children to dangerous stimulant drugs. ADHD, first coined by the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual in 1980 as "attention-deficit disorder," has since then skyrocketed. In 2003, 7.8 percent of children were labeled with ADHD, and by 2011, that number spiked to 11 percent.

This false paradigm is now being planted in the minds of one in every nine children. Two-thirds of the diagnoses are in boys. This is an alarming trend of misdiagnosis, especially when drugs like Adderall and Ritalin are prescribed. The more a child takes these drugs, the more they will develop a tolerance to them, which can lead to a dangerous addiction spiral.

New book written by neurologist Richard Saul sheds light on the situation

The new book, titled ADHD Does Not Exist: The Truth About Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder, is the culmination of Dr. Saul's half-century of experience treating patients.

In his own words, "Not a single individual -- not even the person who finds it close to impossible to pay attention or sit still -- is afflicted by the disorder called ADHD as we define it today."

Saul witnessed how countless patients would come to him with the ADHD label already scribed into their minds. Saul recognized underlying problems that can be solved without the ADHD label and subsequent drugging of the patient.

Patients showing short attention spans would come right up to Saul claiming that they had ADHD. He says that patients would come straight to his doctor office already mentally self-diagnosed with ADHD, asking for drugs like Adderall and Ritalin.

"ADHD makes a great excuse," Saul says. "The diagnosis can be an easy-to-reach-for crutch. Moreover, there's an attractive element to an ADHD diagnosis, especially in adults -- it can be exciting to think of oneself as involved in many things at once, rather than stuck in a boring rut."

Saul relays that his medical colleagues were quick to prescribe the stimulant drugs Ritalin and Adderall, because patients met criteria from a "two-minute checklist."

Saul's method involves treating patients' individual situations and symptoms without drugs

But Dr. Saul believes that the fictitious ADHD is really a collection of symptoms, not a disease. He believes that ADHD should be taken out of the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual. He believes that the symptoms should be approached holistically. Instead of looking at hyperactivity, fidgeting and lack of focus as one lump "disease," Saul outlines causes, methods and alternative solutions for people who struggle to focus and pay attention.

In one example, Saul told the New York Post about a girl who was being treated for ADHD because she was disruptive in class because she couldn't see the blackboard. In the end, all she needed was glasses, not drugs.
