(March 2, 2014) ADHD: A false paradigm projected onto the minds of a generation
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.
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.
