Some of you will really not like this post. Too invested in the disease and the same way of living.
Some of you will love this post. Very invested in health and a new way of living.
An article was posted regarding the “inventor of ADD and ADHA.” It reads. . . . . The German weekly Der Spiegel quoted in its cover story on 2 February 2012 the US American psychiatrist Leon Eisenberg, born in 1922 as the son of Russian Jewish immigrants, who was the “scientific father of ADHD” and who said at the age of 87, seven months before his death in his last interview: “ADHD is a prime example of a fictitious disease”
Doc’s Thoughts: I think it is spot on accurate. Finally, someone had the courage to speak about it. In my experiences, kids that are “diagnosed” with ADD or ADHA have the following traits:
- They are very creative and not given the necessary outlets for their creativity. By the way, video games do not constitute outlets for creativity.
- They are very active and not given the necessary outlets for their energy. By the way, video games do not constitute outlets for activity.
- They consume too much sugar and processed foods.
When all 3 of these are addressed, they are some how “cured” of the problem. I think parents should take second and third looks if they are in this situation. There are alternatives available with much to gain and zero to lose. Think about it. If the statement by Dr. Eisenberg is correct, they can lead healthy, happy lives. If it is not accurate, they have vehicles to express creativity and energy, along with a healthy diet.
