ADHD & Hyperactivity: Questioning behavioural drugs for kids
Who on earth came up with the idea of treating hyper-active kids with 'hyperactivity inducing' amphetamines like Ritalin?
It's completely insane to me that Doctors are allowed to prescribe drugs like this virtually at will, and the parents who fall for this have no idea what they're getting themselves into (for themselves and their child).
Sadly, pharmaceutical companies who have enormous power and marketing budgets are now targeting our kids.
Hyperactivity is not a dis-ease.
It's typically a sign of an "under stimulated" child who is bored to death with the monotony of school and who has true, creative genius qualities.
We're getting to a stage now where there'll soon be likely be mandatory psychiatric screening of all school-aged children, similar to mandatory vaccines.
Yes, you did read that correctly.
Plans are now in the works for every schoolchild to be screened for ADHD, depression, social anxiety disorder and behavioural problems. In fact, in some states of America, it's already the law!
Look at the drug company’s website questionnaire to see how biased and ridiculous the screening procedures are.
The types of questions they ask are equally absurd, confusing and irrational whether they are trying to weed out depression, social anxiety disorder, ADHD or other psychological maladies.
The reality is that feeling out of sorts from time to time is a natural part of being human, not indicative of a serious mental malfunction. But according to the pharmaceutically created and funded, drug testing criteria, nearly everyone is a candidate for an antidepressant of some kind.
The psychiatric screening of our youth on a widespread basis is not only completely unnecessary - in my opinion, it is evil.
The experiences that children have are essential for them to become fully developed adults because children are not adults.
Instead, childhood is filled with dreams, futures without fear, vivid imagination and roller coaster rides of emotion that we as grownups only vaguely recall.
Children are prohibited from truly experiencing childhood; the 'drugged' child is not a real child. This child will not grow into and out of various life stages. Regardless of whether these stages are pleasant or unpleasant, psychiatric drugs prevent normal development.
The essence of your child will be destroyed by the pharmaceutical poisons, that have no regard for the long-term impact of those drugs and the future of that child.
Check the research to see how many children on Ritalin grow up to be drug addicts. The information is not that hard to find online.
Psychotropic prescription drugs actually contribute to depression (rather than prevent it) and even suicidal tendencies.
It's probably too simple as an alternative I know, and you're Doctor will not likely suggest it, but overcoming symptoms of hyperactivity and depression really comes down to placing an emphasis on key principles within the 7 principles of health:
Sunshine, walking, having a passion (a stimulating activity) and whole foods, particularly in the yellow and orange food spectrum, like pineapple, oranges, bananas etc. Other helpful foods are macadamia nuts and natural liquorice.
Be sure to stay away from processed and refined sugars, cereals, chemically infused drinks, soda pop and white flour.
Follow these tips and step by step, stay away from the poisons and little by little, you'll have a happy, healthy child.
