ADHD Diagnosis Update

Many Americans think that ADHD actually exists as a disease.  The surprise, for most, will be to learn that it is, in fact, not a disease. It is a disorder that was voted into existence by work groups of psychiatrists and is based on a list of symptoms that have no scientific basis for leading it to diagnosis and drugging.

In a New York Times article, titled, “The Selling Of Attention Deficit Disorder”, Alan Schwarz’ in-depth article says it all: “’The numbers make it look like an epidemic. Well, it’s not. It’s preposterous,’ Dr. Conners, a psychologist and professor emeritus at Duke University, said in a subsequent interview. ‘This is a concoction to justify the giving out of medication at unprecedented and unjustifiable levels.’ “…The rise of A.D.H.D. diagnoses and prescriptions for stimulants over the years coincided with a remarkably successful two-decade campaign by pharmaceutical companies to publicize the syndrome and promote the pills to doctors, educators and parents. With the children’s market booming, the industry is now employing similar marketing techniques as it focuses on adult A.D.H.D., which could become even more profitable. “…even though they can have significant side effects and are regulated in the same class as morphine and oxycodone because of their potential for abuse and addiction. Patient advocacy groups tried to get the government to loosen regulation of stimulants while having sizable portions of their operating budgets covered by pharmaceutical interests.”

The Washington Post covered the debut of a new book by Dr. Richard Saul, “ADHD Does Not Exist: The Truth About Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder”. Dr. Saul is a physician, researcher and professor and is prepared to stand by what he says. According to Dr. Saul, “Not a single individual — not even the person who finds it close to impossible to pay attention or sit still — is afflicted by the disorder called ADHD as we define it today.”

Over the last two decades, many news articles and books have been published that expose the fraudulent practices of the mental health community and go towards ensuring human rights for each and every one of us.  After all, the lack of full information prior to administering “treatment” violates the globally-accepted concept of information prior to consent, informed consent. Yet, we find that the American public continues to be subjected to the large and complex system of mental health. It has gotten to the point where lay persons are being given crash-courses in how to identify if someone is “mentally ill” and those lay people can be looking at any one of us and our children. From that point forward the person is moved along on the assembly line, diagnosed, drugged and forever more, deemed a mental health patient.  It has gotten to the absurd point where teachers and other school personnel will be practicing outside their credentialed arenas, and although we all know this has been happening in quiet utterances from teachers, it is now going to be not only condoned by the mental health community, it is going to be pushed for.
