Did you know that French don’t recognize ADHD, refuting the concept that drugs which are typically prescribed for the condition are at all useful? In addition to this, they don’t feed their children with the Standard Western diet! Do you see any relation?
Statistically, the rate of ADHD levels in American children is 19 percent, whilst in France it`s only 5 percent- a half of a percent. As for that half percent, the treatment excludes any kind of chemicals, opting for traditional methods.
In France, children are given far less sugar and additive-laden foods like fast food, sugary cereals, and fuzzy drinks. On the other hand, these foods are key ingredients in American children`s diet.
As said by Dr. Edward C. Hamlyn of the Royal College of General Practitioners back in 1998:
“ADHD is fraud intended to justify starting children on a life of drug addiction“.
Leon Eisenberg, one of the founding fathers of ADHD as medical disorder, admitted that ADHD is a prime example of fictitious disease.
The mounting evidence suggests that the treatment for this condition is nothing but fraud.
A long time ago, cognitive therapy was traded in for drugs. Doctors were basically forced to write prescriptions since Big Pharma and the government were together in this fraud. In other words, the pharmaceutical industry had the blessing of the federal government to break laws to maximize profits.
Psychiatrics used to give about fifteen minutes to a patient and be writing out a prescription for drugs. The patient`s complaints were never taken seriously and only drastic instances would allow for a review of the prescription.
This concept of giving pills so easily led to children as young as three to be given drugs like Ritalin (methylphenidate) and Adderall (amphetamine, dextroamphetamine mixed salts), without any other methods being taken into consideration first.
Currently, there are over 5 million children in the U.S on Ritalin or Adderall, who have been left with no other option but to fight with the terrible side effects of these drugs or experience the awful process of weening themselves off of them.
On the other hand, French children are not given chemicals whatsoever and their psychiatrists turn to more safer and older- fashioned methods. Instead of looking at ADHD as biological issue and giving children psycho-stimulant medications like Ritalin and Adderall, they look at this condition as psycho-social and treat it by looking for the root cause that is causing the child distress. Hence, the typical treatment involves psychotherapy or family counseling.
