society, taking a drug for a problem is culturally-accepted.
But is it the RIGHT thing to do? Many people (primarily
under 18) are being diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder
simply for the fact that they don’t fit into the accepted
standards placed upon them by schools. Teachers are telling
parents that their child is not acting properly in class,
so it’s time for Ritalin. Psychiatrists are confirming
the fact after a quick examination. The problem is getting
out of hand.
Over 5 million of America’s youth are taking the
powerful psychotropic drug called Ritalin. The U.S. consumes
90% of the world’s supply of Ritalin. Is ADD just
a problem in the US? Or are other countries just smarter
than we are and don’t promote amphetamine use to their
Ritalin is being surpassed by another
drug called Adderal,
another form of amphetamine. Does this drug ring a bell?
You could go to jail if you made methamphetamine in your
bathroom bathtub, yet as long as the drug pushers in white
jackets (psychiatrists and pediatricians) say it’s OK
for your kids to take amphetamines,
then the parents rush down to the local pharmacy to pick
up their child’s dose.
Children today are on more psychotropic medications than
ever before. What will become of our country in the years
ahead as these children join the job market? Will we have
a drug addicted country on our hand, with little productivity
and a downward economic spiral? How will the drug intake
and diminished brain function affect their decision-making
that affects countless others? I am very scared to think
what lies ahead if this drug-taking trend continues.
Are you one of these people taking speed to “cure”
your so-called problem? If so, you must realize that there
are other answers out there. Better health through better
better chemistry has failed time and time again. Drug interactions
kill an estimated 180,000 people per year (a very conservative
estimate). Prescription drug deaths are the fourth leading
killer in our country, and allopathic medicine, in it’s
entirety is the NUMBER ONE leading cause of death – when
you add hospital mistakes, malpractice and negligence, drug
interactions, hospital-acquired infections, etc. (recent
statistics show that over 900,000 people die each year due
to "Modern Medicine" - please read
Death by Medicine by Gary Null, Ph.D., et.al)
The only way to empower your body and
your children's body to heal, and to function
at a higher level is to use programs that do just that –
work with your body’s own healing systems. Chiropractic
and nutritional guidance are two primary places to start.
Chiropractic allows your body to reach higher levels of
health naturally by enhancing the function of your nervous
system. Nutritional guidance allows the body to function
better once it reaches those higher levels through chiropractic
care. And there are many other forms of the vitalistic
healing arts that do the same, such as acupuncture,
classical homeopathy, and naturopathy.
If you’re sick of taking pills that offer terrible
side effects, then begin considering other forms of TRUE
health-care. Ones that actually enhance the functioning
of your body, not degrading it.
If you are interested in finding
out a natural healing method to enhance brain and body
