Helping Children, Not Drugging Them

Dr. Breggin, a psychiatrist who refuses to prescribe Ritalin for his patients diagnosed with ADD, holds a strong belief that there is no evidence that symptoms associated with ADD constitute a diagnosis or a mental disorder. He voices strong concerns about the possibly damaging long-term effects of Ritalin. Each year, millions of children take Ritalin, which means thousands of doctors are diagnosing them with hyperactivity or ADD. But what do these diagnoses mean; are drugs the answer for these illnesses; and most importantly, is your child getting the proper treatment for his or her problem.

"The drugging of children has gotten so out of hand that America is waking up to this.
This is a national catastrophe. I'm seeing children who are normal who are on five psychiatric drugs."

Peter R. Breggin, M.D. Director, International Center for the Study of Psychiatry and Psychology

Beyond Antibotics

The Truth About the Drug Companies: How They Deceive Us and What to Do About "The medical establishment works closely with the drug multinationals whose main objective is profits, and whose worst nightmare would be an epidemic of good health. Lots of drugs MUST be sold. In order to achieve this, anything goes: lies, fraud, and kickbacks. Doctors are the principal salespeople of the drug companies." Guylaine Lanctot, M.D.

Healing Teas Teas Are One of The Most Effective Ways to Benefit from Nature's Healing Herbs
Teas can help fight depression and anxiety, heal skin conditions and gastrointestinal disorders, regulate hormone imbalances, improve your sex life, prevent illness, and help you heal faster. Many diseases and conditions for which we turn to modern medicine can also be treated naturally with healing herbs. These treatments can be safer, less expensive and possibly even more effective than traditional methods.

Drug-Free Alternatives For Attention-Deficit Disorder - Helping Children, Not Drugging Them

The ADHD Fraud: How Psychiatry Makes "Patients" of Normal Children
Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD is an adult and child neurologist who has made "disease" (brain tumor, multiple sclerosis, etc.) vs. "no disease" (emotional, psychiatric) diagnoses daily and has discovered and described real diseases. Herein he describes the difference between psychiatry/psychology, on the one hand, and neurology and all organic medicine, on the other, and why ADHD and all of psychiatry's "chemical imbalances" are not diseases at all--but fraud. Referring to psychiatry, he states: "They made a list of the most common symptoms of emotional discomfiture of children and in a stroke that could not be more devoid of science or Hippocratic motive-termed them " diseases"/ "chemical imbalances" each needing/requiring a "chemical balancer"- a pill." In 1970, when "hyperactivity"/"minimal brain damage" (forerunners of ADHD) was first represented to Congress to be a brain disease, only 150,000 had it. Today, not by science or truth, but the "big lie" -saying it is a disease often enough, 6 million have it! Nor is ADHD the only "chemical imbalance." They give us conduct disorder (CD), oppositional-defiant disorder (ODD), major depressive disorder (MDD), OCD, PTSD, GAD, SAD, etc., a total of 374 psychiatric disorders in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-IV-TR) of the American Psychiatric Association (APA), said to be "chemical imbalances" needing "chemical balancers" --pills! In 2003 Congressional hearings it was said that 17% of the nation's school children, 8.8 million, were labeled and drugged by psychiatry. Today it is 20%; one in five; over 10 million! How better to sew the seeds of our own destruction? As if this were not enough, the President's New Freedom Commission on Mental Health is set to foist compulsory, government-mandated, mental health screening on all 52 million US schoolchildren. When normal people are lied to, told they have a "disease" to make "patients" of them, their right to informed consent has been abrogated and they no longer live in a democracy. When, pursuant to that lie, they are drugged, what we have is not "treatment" but poisoning. This is the greatest health care fraud in modern medical history.

Dr. Fred Baughman - In the area of child psychiatric drugs, the main focus has been the recently commenced FDA hearings, which pertain to reports of death, strokes and heart attacks in children and adults. The first report concerning Adderall came out about a year ago. Adderall is the number one ADHD drug, and that report dealt with 12 or so individuals that were said to have had strokes, if you can imagine a stroke occurring in a young child. Some were sudden deaths and others were heart complications, and a total of 20 to 30 such reports lead Health Canada to take Adderall off the market. "...the only way the pharma-psychiatry-government cartel differs for the Cali, Medellin, Tijuana, and opium cartels of the world is that the pharma-psychiatry-government cartel target everyone, from cradle to grave—your parents, and grandparents in their nursing home beds, those truly physically ill, adding their never-essential drugs to essential drugs, compromising real medical and surgical treatment, and infants, toddlers, preschoolers and all they can force or court-order to swallow their brain-altering, brain-damaging, “chemical balancers.” We are warned by le Carre, that their power, in league with government, is the greatest of all threats to our liberty and right of self-determination" Learn more....ADHD fraud and the chemical holocaust against a generation of children

Talking Back to Ritalin: What Doctors Aren't Telling You About Stimulants and ADHD Peter Breggin MD

Treating mental disorders as chemical imbalances to be corrected primarily by chemical intervention is, claims Dr. Breggin, an outrageous hazard to health, damaging the brains of a high percentage of those subjected to it. Breggin notes that the medical training of today's biopsychiatrists ill-equips them for any other approach: They are taught to make diagnoses and prescribe medical treatments; their communication skills are undeveloped, and they know little about the art of listening to patients' problems. Their penchant for prescribing drugs, according to Breggin, is encouraged by a too-cozy relationship between the medical profession and the pharmaceutical industry, which generously funds research into the biochemical and genetic basis of mental disorders, and whose claims for its products are insufficiently scrutinized by either the FDA or the medical profession. Issuing a passionate, much-needed wake-up call for everyone who plays a part in America's ever-increasing dependence on harmful psychiatric drugs, a psychiatrist breaks through the hype and false promises surrounding the "New Psychiatry" and shows how potentially dangerous, even brain-damaging, many of its drugs and treatments are.

"It is easy to see why stimulants dominate the treatment of ADHD. Drug companies spend over $20 billion a year on promotion - more than they spend on research.What does this money buy them? David Healy, internationally known psychiatric researcher and writer, claims about 50 percent of all psychiatric journal articles are ghost written by employees of drug companies, and that 30% of The American Psychiatric Association's income comes from drug company subsidies, grants and advertising. Around 70 percent of all drug research is funded by the drug companies themselves, and most of the rest, funded by the government, is heavily influenced by drug companies' extensive lobbying machinery. Major journals (including The New England Journal of Medicine and Lancet) have lamented the control of research and publishing by drug company money: The New England Journal of Medicine editorialized, stating they could hardly find reviewers for their psychiatric drug articles who did not have conflicts of interest due to financial ties with drug companies. Studies funded by drug companies, that don't support the companies' drugs, are rarely published. The bottom line: professionals and the public are bombarded with a stream of "research" and "information" financed and spun by the people who make and sell these drugs. The conflict of interest is palpable." Peter C. Dwyer, licensed clinical social worker

The Last Normal Child: Essays on the Intersection of Kids, Culture, and Psychiatric Drugs Lawrence H. Diller MD

This book is obligatory reading for anyone who wants to make sense out of the present confusion about medicating children to improve their behavior. Dr. Diller is a rare voice of moderation in this disputed area. He agrees that a few children are greatly improved in the short term by such medications, but he decries the excessive labeling, the unreasonable pressures from schools and parents, the aggressive advertising by the drug companies to parents and physicians, and the neglect of the essential psychosocial management of these children with such traditional techniques as effective discipline." - William B. Carey, M.D. Division of General Pediatrics The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Clinical Professor of Pediatrics, University of Pennsylvania, School of Medicine Author of Understanding Your Child's Temperament and Coping with Children's Temperament

"We are all caught in the whether-to or whether-not to medicate children who are on the ADHD spectrum. Some children profit from medication, and most don't deserve it. This book may help you sort out when and whether. I liked the stories and the approach to medication that they convey. It is a convincing book." - T. Berry Brazelton, M.D. Founder, Child Development Unit, Children's Hospital Boston Professor of Pediatrics and Human Development, Brown University Clinical Professor of Pediatrics Emeritus, Harvard Medical School Author, 28 books including Touchpoints and the classic trilogy Infants and Mothers, Toddlers and Parents, and On Becoming a Family.

Doing Psychiatry Wrong: A Critical and Prescriptive Look at a Faltering Profession Rene J Muller MD

The prospect that the psychiatric profession has hurt rather than helped many of its patients is incredibly disheartening; however, wrong diagnoses and improper treatment are all too common errors within the field. Author René Muller presents a revealing look into how psychiatry has failed a great majority of patients, all the while recognizing the valiant efforts made by psychiatrists who maintain their integrity and serve their patients well. The result is an enlightening critique of the profession—one that pits criticism of psychiatry’s current biological reduction and exaggerated promises against the accumulated wisdom of a profession that has struggled for a century and a half to understand and help those with mental illness. Muller’s analysis is drawn from the experience of having evaluated scores of emergency room patients over the course of 10 years. The patients’ stories reveal that many of these individuals have been diminished or damaged as a result of a wrong diagnosis and improper medication. Individual chapters throughout Doing Psychiatry Wrong explains how and why the practice of psychiatry has changed, how psychiatry mistreats depression, misdiagnoses of schizophrenia, and, finally, how psychiatry can be practiced so that all patients are helped by the medical profession rather than harmed.

A.D.D. and A.D.H.D. Diet by Rachel Bell and Dr. Howard Peiper
This book is an updated version of Rachel Bell, Dr. Howard Peiper, and Nina Anderson's booklet, A.D.D. The Natural Approach. In the Preface the authors present a constellation of behavioral, cognitive, social, and muscular symptoms attributed to A.D.D./A.D.H.D. In the Foreword, Dr. DorisRapp estimates that 8 to 22 million children will have been placed on activity-modifying drugs like Ritalin by 2000, yet 20 to 40% will not be helped by these drugs. She believes that many drugs should be the last choice in treating A.D.D./A.D.H.D., especially when they have a long list of side effects. The first choice should be to detect and eliminate "the cause" of the illness among multiple causes from favorite foods, diet, additives, metals, toxins, dust, mold, pollen, chemicals, noise, sources of electromagnetic (and other forms of) energy, misalignments of the skull, vertebra of the spine, and so on. The authors' strongly assert that you can do something about these conditions, if willing to open your mind, search, and find out what works best for you or a specific child.

The Add Nutrition Solution : A Drug-Free Thirty-Day Plan by Marcia Zimmerman

Bernard Rimland, Ph.D., director of the Autism Research Institute, San Diego: "This book is must reading for every parent, physician, teacher, and school nurse who deals with ADD and AD/HD children. ADD is not caused by a deficiency of Ritalin. Marcia Zimmerman's The A..D.D. Nutrition Solution is right on target!"

In her new book, No More ADHD, 10 Steps To Help Improve Your Child's Attention and Behavior WITHOUT Drugs, Dr. Mary Ann Block, top-selling author of the groundbreaking book, No More Ritalin, reveals the truth about the ADHD diagnosis and helps parents, step by step identify and improve their child's true health and learning problems. Dr. Block takes the reader on a shocking journey behind the scenes of the medical profession to expose the origin of the ADHD label and explains how children’s attention and behavior symptoms can be the result of real and explainable health and learning problems

"Finally, a book that not only makes sense but gives practical suggestions to help our children. The book, No More ADHD, is bigger and better and with much more information than Dr. Block's first book, No More Ritalin. No More ADHD examines the ADHD diagnosis and rips it to shreds with facts from the FDA, DEA and other sources. But most importantly, the author takes an unflinching look at the all too real and frightening dangers of the drugs that doctors give children who are labeled ADHD. The psychotic and cardiac symptoms alone should send up big red flags! But the book has answers. Dr. Block explains the real causes of attention and behavior problems and what parents can do to fix them. Before you and your child get caught up in the ADHD frenzy, you have to read this book. Your child is depending on you." an amazon reviewer

101 Reasons to Avoid Ritalin Like the Plague This book captures the bigger picture of all that is sacrificed with the pivotal decision to put a child on Ritalin or medications. There are so many physical and psychological side-effects that never get mentioned to the parent who is seeking help or being pressured by the school to do something about their child's behavior or poor performance at school. This book fights for the parent to have full disclosure of the truth. Parents are never told: "Oh by the way, once in a while a child dies simply by taking their prescribed medication, or by the way, children on stimulant medications have twice the future rate of drug abuse, or by the way, 1/3 of all children on these medications develope symptoms of obsessive compulsive behavior within the first year. Most doctors don't tell parents these things because they simply don't know. Most doctors get the majority of their information about these medications from the same pharmaceutical companies that have a tremendous vested interest in selling more and more medications each year. Most doctors can't tell parents the truth about the psychological side effects becuase they have no idea that simply giving children these drugs makes it near impossible for the child to deeply believe in themselves and their own power and resourcefulness but rather the child comes to be reliant on the hoped-for power of the medication.


Toxic Psychiatry : Why Therapy, Empathy, and Love Must Replace the Drugs, Electroshock, and Biochemical Theories of the New Psychiatry by Peter R. Breggin MD

Issuing a passionate, much-needed wake-up call for everyone who plays a part in America's ever-increasing dependence on harmful psychiatric drugs, a psychiatrist breaks through the hype and false promises surrounding the "New Psychiatry" and shows how potentially dangerous, even brain-damaging, many of its drugs and treatments are. Every person would be wise to own a copy of Toxic Psychiatry. It's accessible to professionals and "average" people, and is both informative and interesting. This is the book that education, psychology, sociology, and pre-med students should be reading in college. No one should be able to get out of med or pharmacy school without this information. For the general population, here's a chance to find out what psychiatry, schools, and the medical profession don't want you to know. They don't want you thinking about lobotomies, and how a Nobel prize was awarded for the procedure. They aren't enthusiastic about discussing the origin of "anti-psychotic" drugs, which were developed to provide a chemical lobotomy. And they certainly aren't eager to have people discussing the validity of the psychiatric diagnoses that have become so popular.

The Prozac Alternative: Natural Relief from Depression With St. John's Wort, Kava, Ginkgo, 5-Htp, Homeopathy, and Other Alternative Therapies by Ran Knishinsky

A comprehensive guide to the use of St. John's wort and other alternative therapies for treatment of depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders - Offers a comprehensive look at St. John's wort--the most significant natural remedy for depression--including its history in herbalism, current clinical uses, safety, and side effects - Discusses other natural alternatives such as Kava, Melatonin, and 5-HTP as treatment options to depression In the early 1990s the sale of Prozac exceeded the sale of all other antidepressant drugs in both American and world markets. But today St. John's wort is recommended 3 to 1 over Prozac as a primary treatment for depression in European countries such as Germany--and its sales continue to skyrocket in the United States. Safe, all-natural, and less expensive than synthetic drugs, St. John's wort is the ideal natural therapy for many people's depression, anxiety, and other related mood disorders. The Prozac Alternative offers a comprehensive look at St. John's wort, including its history in herbalism, current clinical uses, and safety and side effects, as well as how it compares with other natural alternatives such as Kava, Melatonin, and 5-HTP. It also discusses other uses of these natural substances as treatment alternatives to Western medicine for a variety of medical conditions.

Running on Ritalin: A Physician Reflects on Children, Society, and Performance in a Pill Lawrence H. Diller MD

Diagnoses for Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) have escalated dramatically over the past few years, and right along with these diagnoses have been prescriptions for Ritalin. Considered a family-saving wonder drug by many parents, Ritalin gives children who have trouble in school or difficulty socializing (due to poor impulse control) the ability to slow down, focus, and behave. Success stories abound, but not everyone is convinced. Pediatrician and family therapist Lawrence H. Diller thinks it's time to reexamine the ADD "epidemic" and our responses to it, particularly our eagerness to use medication as a first strike. In Running on Ritalin, he poses many thoughtful questions: Are behavioral problems in over 15 percent of elementary school-age boys really the result of neurological aberrations? Is performance pressure so great that parents seek out ADD diagnoses (and Ritalin) to give their children an edge? Does it make sense to give so many kids daily doses of a drug with as much potential for abuse as speed? His answers are equally thoughtful. Refusing to polarize the issues (he prescribes Ritalin to some of his own patients), Diller explores the roles played by advocacy groups, drug companies, schools, and the government in creating the ADD mania, and makes a plea for calmer thinking about behavioral problems.

Vaccination, Social Violence and Criminality. '...It is the thesis of this remarkable book that early vaccinations can result in mild cases of sub-clinical encephalitis which, in turn, may well be responsible -- at least in part -- for the increase in autism, hyperactivity, dyslexia, sociopathy, and developmental disabilities, a rise that roughly coincides with the initiation of infant vaccinations. Coulter suggests further linkages to the increase in adolescent crime and suicide, and the decline in SAT scores.' Stanley Kripner, AHP, January 1993. (read the full article online)

Harris Coulter, Ph.D. - "Physicians have always known that encephalitis, or inflammation of the brain, ...can be caused by traumatic injury to the head, a severe burn, infectious illnesses such as measles, mumps, German measles, chicken pox, or whooping cough, and — last but not least — the vaccines against these same diseases: 'post-vaccinal encephalitis.'" Vaccination being one of the causes of several serious social problems of our day, incuding violence and aggressiveness. Although Coulter doesn't feel that the vaccination program is responsible for every case of such disabilities and social problems, he is sure that it makes a substantial contribution.

Children with disabilities such as learning disorders, ADHD, depression, and aggression, are often given drugs such as Prozac, Ritalin, and Luvox. These drugs can themselves cause the patient to experience uncontrollable violence against self and against others. Could it be true that the violence we are seeing in our communities has two main causes: first the vaccinations that cause encephalitis, and then the prescription drugs that are given to the damaged children?

Donald K. Brown, M.D. - "Many children don't drink enough water because they were raised on sugared beverages and juices."

Your Body's Many Cries For WaterAccording to Pediatrics magazine, many children don't drink enough water because they were raised on sugared beverages and juices. Substituting juices and sodas for water may subject children to potential obesity because kids become accustomed to sweet flavor. Unfortunately, this is not surprising. New soft drinks, sports drinks and powdered mixes that are targeted to children are frequently introduced. These drinks are not a healthy source of hydration and can cause damage to proper development. A 50-pound, active child, for example, needs about a quart of water each day to stay hydrated. Even infants are at risk. Babies often cry when they are thirsty

WATER The Great Healer "Every function inside the body is regulated by and depends on water. Water must be available to carry vital elements, oxygen, hormones, and chemical messengers to all parts of the body. Water is also needed to carry toxic waste away from the cells. Medical professionals have been educated to treat pain and disease with medications---they do not understand the problems associated with dehydration." Batmanghelidj, M.D. .

Neuropsychiatrist Dr. Sydney Walker cogently explores the medical minefield of hyperactivity and helps parents arrive at safe, effective answers for their children, without unnecessarily drugging them with potentially dangerous mind-altering medicine. Each year, millions of children take Ritalin, which means thousands of doctors are diagnosing them with hyperactivity or ADD. But what do these diagnoses mean; are drugs the answer for these illnesses; and most importantly, is your child getting the proper treatment for his or her problem? Neuropsychiatrist Dr. Sydney Walker cogently explores the medical minefield of hyperactivity and helps parents arrive at safe, effective answers for their children, without unnecessarily drugging them with potentially dangerous mind-altering medicine. Included in his in-depth guide book is:
--How to determine if your child needs medical help
--How to find a good doctor, a real diagnosis, and effective treatment
--How to assert yourself when talking to doctors and school officials
--How to evaluate both traditional and alternative approaches to treating hyperactivity and ADD
--And much more invaluable information in caring for your child's health


A MYTH-SHATTERING BOOK NO PARENT CAN AFFORD TO MISS!
"Dr. Walker's book is must reading for parents who want real solutions for their children--not just 'wastebasket' labels such as hyperactivity and ADD. I recommend it highly to parents--and their doctors." --Bernard Rimland, Ph.D., Director, Autism Research Institute

"Walker, director of the Southern California Neuropsychiatric Institute, makes a dramatic case against the widespread use of the drug Ritalin to treat hyperactive children, [pointing] a finger at hurried doctors who treat symptoms without identifying underlying causes." --Publishers Weekly

"Finally someone breaks the myth about hyperactivity....Not only does it clearly show that hyperactivity is a professional excuse for medical incompetence, but it gives parents a real action plan for helping their children. It's about time an esteemed physician spoke out. Bravo, Sydney Walker." --Charles Inlander, President, People's Medical Society

About the Author
Sydney Walker, III, M.D., is a board-certified neuropsychiatrist, Director of the Southern California Neuropsychiatric Institute, and founder of Behavioral Neurology International.

Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

Essential Supplements

THE LCP SOLUTION: The Remarkable Nutritional Treatment for ADHD, Dyslexia, and Dyspraxia by B. Jacqueline, Ph.D.

LCP (long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids).

This important new book documents a major breakthrough in the treatment of the three most widespread learning disabilities--ADHD, dyslexia, and dyspraxia ("clumsy child syndrome"). Although these conditions have reached epidemic proportions, treatment has been limited to ineffective behavioral therapies or the controversial prescription drug Ritalin. Now Dr. B. Jacqueline Stordy, a leading researcher in the field, reveals a stunning new treatment based on a simple nutritional supplement: LCP (long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids). The LCP Solution is the first book to describe this new natural treatment and to explain how children (and adults) can incorporate it into their daily lives.

As a member of a family with a long history of dyslexia, Dr. Stordy discovered in a pioneering experiment that dyslexic and dyspraxic children who began taking a dietary supplement consisting of LCP experienced dramatic transformations in the quality of their lives. At the same time, parallel studies conducted at Purdue University came up with similar results with children who had ADHD. The effect of this dietary supplement was nothing short of revolutionary: after only a few weeks, dyslexic and ADHD children became calmer, more focused, easier to teach, while dyspraxics improved significantly in dexterity and balance, showing markedly less anxiety.

In The LCP Solution, Dr. Stordy documents how this life-changing treatment came about and explains step-by-step how sufferers of each of the three major conditions can use it to change their lives at home, at school, and at work. Illuminating, vividly presented, and authoritative in its findings, this book will revolutionize our approach to learning disabilities. LCPs are natural, simple to use, and amazing in their benefits. If you or someone you love suffers from a learning disability, this book is essential reading. more on the healing power of omega 3 fatty acid (flaxoil)

From more than 8,000 such studies and more than 12,000 patient evaluations, Dr. Amen concludes that six--not the formerly presumed two--different types of ADD exist. This book encompasses the full spectrum of Dr. Amen's work: from symptom identification to clinical evaluation, to diet and medication recommendations, to everyday strategies for living with ADD (whether the reader is a parent of an ADD child, or has been diagnosed with the disease.)


Manufacturing Victims : What the Psychology Industry is doing to people
by Dr Tana Dineen Ph.D

Psychology is an influential and accepted force in our culture. It has become a kind of industry that generates a great deal of money for its practitioners -- sometimes at the expense of the patient. Manufacturing Victims: What The Psychology Industry Is Doing To People describes the various types of psychological techniques and assumptions that create and cater to "victims", often to the damage of the patient, the division of families, the distortion of justice, the destruction of businesses, and the weakening of the nation.

Individual chapters address Victim Making; Fabricated Victims; The Growth of the Psychology Industry; Selling Psychology as Science; The Business of Psychology; The Technology of Victim Making; and Talking Back Our Private Lives. Manufacturing Victims is a serious and long needed assessment of what is happening with increasing frequency in this lucrative and widespread area of mental health services. Dr. Dineen practiced psychology for many years before concluding that her profession had swayed from a discipline whose aims were to relieve the suffering of the minority of humans with serious mental disease and become a gigantic industry targeting, for a price, the lesser ills of the majority with no mental disease but with money to spend on remedies, the majority of which were of unproven and often little value.

Rage-Free Kids: Homeopathic Medicine for Defiant, Aggressive, and Violent Children Robert Ullman N.D.

Although anger is a normal emotion, in certain children it can spiral out of control and become something much less manageable--rage. Based on their years of clinical experience, homeopathic doctors Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman and Robert Ullman have developed a natural answer to extreme anger. Now, in this eye-opening resource for parents, they share their homeopathic approach to freeing defiant children from aggressive behavior. Inside, concerned parents will learn not only how to cope with the challenges of raising such a child, but, more important, how to understand the source of the anger and effectively treat it.

Neurological and Immune Reactive Conditions Affecting Kids
The mercury connection to neurological pervasive developmental disorders(autism, schizophrenia, dyslexia, ADD, childhood depression, learning disabilities, OCD, etc.) and developmental immune conditions(eczema, asthma, and allergies)

The incidence of neurotoxic, allergic, and immune reactive conditions such as autism, schizophrenia, ADD, dyslexia, allergies, asthma, eczema, psoriasis, childhood diabetes, etc. have been increasing rapidly in recent years. A recent report by the National Research Council found that 50% of all pregnancies in the U.S. are now resulting in prenatal or postnatal mortality, significant birth defects, developmental disabilities or otherwise chronically unhealthy babies. There has been a similar sharp increase in developmental disabilities in Canadian children over the last 2 decades, including learning disabilities and behavioral problems, asthma and allergies, and childhood cancer. Exposure to toxic chemicals or environmental factors appear to be a factor in as much as 28 percent of the 4 million U.S. children born each year , with 1 in 6 having one of the neurological conditions previously listed. The U.S. Dept. Of Education indicates that over 5 million children attending school have neurological related disabilities reported by state agencies, other than ADD. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics between 4 to 12 % of all school age children are affected by ADHD and a similar number have some degree of dyslexia. Studies indicate that over 60,000 children are born each year with neurodevelopmental impairments due to prenatal exposure to methyl mercury and two other sources of mercury exposure appear more common and at higher levels than this, mercury from vaccines and amalgam dental fillings.

Psychiatric Drugs: Cure or Quackery? Psychiatric drugs are worthless, and most of them are harmful. Many cause permanent brain damage at the doses customarily given. Psychiatric drugs and the profession that promotes them are dangers to your health. This is an educational resource for parents whose children have been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and are being pressured into drugging their child by a school Psychologist, social worker, teacher, or principle. This site expose the health risks, dangers, and deaths that are a direct result of administering psycho-tropic drugs to children. These psycho-tropic drugs given to children labeled with ADHD include Ritalin, Methylphenidate, Concerta, Dexedrine, Dextrostat, and Metadate, just to name a few. It is time for parents to come together and fight this horrific war against the drugging of our children, America's future. more

RITALIN CAUSES GENETIC DAMAGE, CANCER
A new study found that every one of a dozen children treated for attention deficit/ hyperactivity disorder with methylphenidate experienced a threefold increase in levels of chromosome abnormalities—occurrences associated with increased risks of cancer and other adverse health effects. Methylphenidate is the most widely prescribed of a class of amphetamine-like drugs used to treat ADHD, with more than 10 million prescriptions written for it in 1996 alone. Between 1991 and 1999, United States sales of methylphenidate increased more than 500 percent.
Researchers at The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston and the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston (UTMB) reported their detection of the chromosome abnormalities in the journal Cancer Letters. Their peer-reviewed paper is to be published several months hence, but the journal editors have made it available online in the journal’s “articles in press” section.

    No More Ritalin : Treating Adhd Without Drugs by Mary, Dr Block
    Dr. Mary Ann Block shows why Ritalin may be very dangerous to a child's health--and offers parents safer and more effective alternatives. Using thorough research and actual case histories from her clinic, Dr. Block provides powerful evidence that a drug-free approach works.

    Dr. Block is an international expert on the treatment of ADHD without drugs and a recognized healthcare leader for her natural and practical approach to children's health. Dr. Block, a tireless advocate for children, has been traveling the country speaking to parent and professional groups, on national news programs and at legislative hearings on the dangers of the psychiatric drugging of our children. Dr. Block is the medical director of The Block Center, an international clinic for adults and children with chronic health problems in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. While others are debating the pros and cons of the psychiatric drugging of children, Dr. Block has spent her medical career working in the trenches, helping to get children off these drugs and to keep them off. A mother who knows all too well how the medical system can fail a child, Dr. Block was compelled to go to medical school at the age of 39 to save her daughter after doctors made her child seriously ill with a wrong diagnosis and inappropriate use of drugs. Today she brings to her patients the understanding and knowledge of a physician and the sensitivity and respect of a parent. What Dr. Block learned as a mother and a physician is in this book and may help bring hope and comfort to other parents.


    An Epidemic of ADD or a Matter of Overdiagnosis? Does ADD Really Exist?

    (Excerpted from Ritalin-Free Kids: Safe and Effective Homeopathic Medicine for ADD and Other Behavioral and Learning Problems )

    The most common treatment for Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) in children are Ritalin and Dexedrine, both amphetamines with common side effects such as headaches, appetite loss, insomnia, depression, and growth retardation. This book offers a homeopathic approach to ADD that has fostered profoundly positive changes in about 80% of the children receiving the treatment.

    Peter Breggin, M.D., author of Toxic Psychiatry and The War Against Children. As a psychiatrist who refuses to prescribe Ritalin for his patients diagnosed with ADD, Dr. Breggin holds a strong belief that there is no evidence that symptoms associated with ADD constitute a diagnosis or a mental disorder. He voices strong concerns about the possibly damaging long-term effects of Ritalin.

      ADHD recovery with homeopathy
      Dr. Randy Martin

      This is the story of an eight-year-old little boy who first came to me for treatment on June 1, 1993. His mother described him as “out of control.” Everything was a constant drama in the house, with the child craving constant attention. He mimicked others’ behavior to spite them and was angry and demanding almost all of the time.

      He had been like this for years, but over the last year he had become increasingly unmanageable. His mother said he threw frequent temper tantrums, had to be -supervised 100% of the time and wouldn’t “accept no as an answer.”

      When I saw him in my office, the first thing out of his mouth was a reaction to my computer. He came over to my desk, stood very close to me, and with a little malicious grin on his face said: “Your computer just quacked,” referring to the sound effects my Macintosh computer makes.

      The child would hit the mother and other children and smile while he was doing it. The mother described him as enjoying others’ pain and hurt. Afterwards, he usually showed guilt or remorse and felt momentarily sad for the pain inflicted. He was -described as defying his mother, and using anything as an argument.

      He loves to read, but his attention and behavior was unpredictable—one moment nice, sweet or excessively affectionate and the next moment being violent and -uncontrollable. He refused to go to bed at night, had a huge appetite, had frequent stomach pains, took frequent cat naps, slept on his side, was very opinionated, craved ice, beef jerky, candy, chocolate, orange juice, tomatoes, tomato juice, and fruit -(especially -bananas, pears, and peaches). He disliked salty foods.

      He was diagnosed with Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder and had been on Prozac for three months at the time of his first visit with me. His mother reported that his behavior was a little improved on the Prozac, but not significant enough to keep him under control. They had also tried psychological counseling with little improvement. The mother decided to take him off Prozac without discussing it with the doctor (not something I would recommend!).

      I prescribed a homeopathic remedy called Medorrhinum. I recommended taking the remedy only three times, at a frequency of every other day. The mother called me ten days later and reported that there was at least a 50% improvement in behavior. The mother had accidentally given the remedy daily, rather than following my instructions. I told her to wait and to not give him any more of the remedy, since improvement -often will take place once the remedy is stopped. Ten days later she called again and said there was a setback. I recommended one dose of Medorrhinum in a higher -potency.

      Ten days later the mother called to say there was immediate improvement, but that it didn’t last. I recommended one more dose of the remedy. I didn’t hear back from her so I assumed she and the child were doing well. I phoned a few times to check but my calls were never returned.

      I was curious about this case. Since the behavioral problem was so severe and the improvement so quick and dramatic, I wanted to know if it was holding. I finally reached the mother nine months later and she reported complete and lasting improvement without any more doses of the remedy. He just “snapped out of it” and “never snapped back,” she reported.

      This type of case is very gratifying for me as the doctor. This little boy’s entire life will be changed thanks to the power and magic of homeopathy. Note that there are about 50 homeopathic remedies for ADD. Do not try to treat this yourself. Also, nutrition plays a large role and in my treatment program, I select a specific and individualized -nutritional regimen based on either the child’s blood, urine or hair lab tests.

      Questions about Hyperactivity and Attention Deficit Disorder: (from Dr. Martin)

      Q. What are the potential side effects of Ritalin therapy?
      A. There are many, but the primary side effects are loss of appetite, insomnia, loss of creativity, apathy, depression, lethargy and allergic reactions.

      Q. Is there a natural way to treat hyperactivity and ADD?
      A. Yes! Using herbs, vitamin supplements, a change in diet, homeopathic medications and amino acids has a proven track record. More and more medical literature is now available showing the positive effects of these natural therapies.

      Q. What are the causes of hyperactivity or ADD?
      A. It can be a physiological imbalance, nutritional disorder, chemical imbalance, blood sugar disturbance, allergy to foods or artificial additives, or sensitivity to sugar or -caffeine.

      Q. What are the most common foods that can cause problems?
      A. Holistic doctors have performed a lot of research and determined that the most -common foods to cause problems are the following: milk, cheese, corn, chocolate, wheat, eggs, yeast, sugar, food coloring and artificial food additives.

      Q. How do we determine if foods are a problem?
      A. The best way is to eliminate all suspected foods for twenty-one days and then to add them back one at a time for forty-eight hours each, and see if there is any adverse -reaction. If your child shows a reaction, eliminate the food. After the body chemistry is brought into balance, you may be able to add the food back to the diet.

      Q. What are typical food allergy reactions?
      A. Typical reactions are as follows: fatigue or sleepiness, nervousness, mood swings, restlessness, irritability, inability to concentrate, nasal congestion, headaches, muscle aches, abdominal pains, bed-wetting, facial pallor or puffiness, and dark shadows under the eyes.

Protected in this way, our children will be spared the totally unnecessary misery of a drug-hazed youth, succeeded by the risk of a drug-consumed adulthood.

      Hugs, Not Drugs by John Robbins

      "Approximately one-third of the children diagnosed as hyperactive do not become less restless on Ritalin. Some actually become more agitated. At best, the drug can help those children who have been accurately diagnosed to focus their minds so they can temporarily absorb information better. But others become withdrawn and stare off into space, not responding to much of anything. While these children no longer make trouble for their teachers or get into fights, they begin to exist in a state of disconnected social isolation"

      "In 1985, Lancet published the most convincing evidence to date In an extremely well designed study, 79 percent of hyperactive children improved when suspect foods were eliminated from their diets, only to become worse again when the foods were reintroduced. Artificial colorings and flavorings were the most serious culprits; sugar was also found to have a noticeable effect."

      "A series of studies in the 1980s removed chemical additives and reduced sugar in the diets of juvenile delinquents. Overall, 8,076 young people in 12 juvenile correctional facilities were involved. The result? Deviant behavior fell 47 percent.

      "In Virginia, 276 juvenile delinquents at a detention facility housing particularly hardened adolescents were put on the diet for two years. During that time, the incidence of theft dropped 77 percent, insubordination dropped 55 percent, and hyperactivity dropped 65 percent. In Los Angeles County probation detention halls, 1,382 youths were put on the diet. Again, the results were excellent. There was a 44 percent reduction in problem behavior and suicide attempts."

      "One remarkable double-blind, placebo-controlled study actually compared Ritalin directly with vitamin B6. Published in 1979 in the journal of Biological Psychiatry, this study found that high doses of vitamin B6 actually did a better job than Ritalin at reducing hyperactivity. Vitamin B6 is, of course, far cheaper (Ritalin prescriptions cost $30 to $60 per month), and far safer than the drug, and the study's protocol was outstanding."
