Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a well known medical term in America, but in France, it’s rarely used, if ever. That’s because doctors in France address behavioral issues in children holistically, not as a condition that can be drugged out of them.
The ADHD label clearly takes advantage of children who are already hurting. The ADHD diagnosis convinces children they have a condition that can only by managed by nefarious amphetamine drugs. The ADHD label ultimately targets children who have a hard time coping, communicating and learning due to abandonment, abuse or bad environment. The ADHD label also takes advantage of children who have been cognitively impaired by nutrient deficits, heavy metals, industrial chemicals, artificial dyes and injected carcinogens.
This broad predatory term (ADHD) has been used like a brand on cattle to subject children’s minds to some of the worst kinds of pharmaceutical drugs – Adderall (amphetamine, mixed dextroamphetamine salts) and Ritalin (methylphenidate). This fictitious diagnosis has not only mistakenly categorized countless children, but it has also addicted children to drugs that will further and forever damage their minds.
The French do not engage in this kind of predatory labeling and drugging of children for issues that are better addressed holistically. In fact, the French do not believe that the drugs used in conjunction with the ADHD label are any good at all. Accordingly, the French feed their children far fewer additives, artificial dyes and refined sugars. Junk foods like sugary cereals, fast food and soft drinks are generally limited. Parents give their children limits and discipline appropriately.
In conjunction with healthier lifestyles, the French treat any lingering attention and hyperactivity problems by addressing situational causes. A clinical diagnosis with a French doctor looks at CFTMEA criteria, which includes underlying social issues that contribute to their behavior. Doctors spend time evaluating, identifying and understanding the psychological disruptions of each child. Doctors also address dietary factors and limit the amount of psycho-stimulant medications given to children.
The wisdom of the French in this area is why the ADHD rate is at .5 percent in France, compared to an astounding 19 percent in America. The French also treat each child’s problems differently, on an individual basis. Instead of using chemical medicine as the U.S. does, the French opt for old fashioned methods that address the underlying issues.
In 1970, experts began to notice attention deficits appearing in American children. The problem then was called hyperkinesis. The causes were isolated to heavy metal and chemical toxicity. By 1985, these causes were ignored. Using the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, the pharmaceutical industry started calling the problem ADHD, forcing parents and children to accept amphetamine drugs to manage the problem. Even as the drugging continued, the toxicity was never addressed. Over the years, vaccine schedules and junk food consumption increased, exacerbating the toxicity. More and more children began to lose focus.
One of the creators of the ADHD term went on record in 2009, denouncing ADHD as a fraudulent “condition” designed to push a horrifying “treatment.” On his deathbed, at age 87, Leon Eisenberg said, “ADHD is a prime example of a fictitious disease.” His statements echo those of Dr. Edward C. Hamlyn of the Royal College of General Practitioners, who stated in 1998, “ADHD is fraud intended to justify starting children on a life of drug addiction.”
They are both right. In America, the average time a psychiatrist spends with a child is 15 minutes. They are trained to prescribe Ritalin and Adderall in that time frame. The children then become dependent on the drugs. Any future weaning process becomes very difficult for their already chemically-assaulted minds.
Malnourished children are expected to assimilate in unnatural school environments. Perhaps the environments we put children in are not conducive to health and well-being at all. Maybe we condition the good nature out of our children and drug them until they comply with our unnatural, stressful society.
