A.D.D. and Drugging our Children

A Right to Choose

Waging a battle against drugging our children.

Many are saying they went too far when they suggested that they medicate their children with psychotropic drugs. Many opponents, who believe its diagnosis is based on a list of highly subjective questions, deny the existence of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD).

Even so, a whopping 6% of elementary and middle school students take psychotropic drugs to control ADD, even though the long term effects of the medications are unknown.

Tuesday, April 15, 2003 on the Montel Williams daytime television talk show, there were again many examples of children being ‘Drugged up’ because of ‘Professional’s’ who feel the best way to deal with any thing they do not fully understand is to administer drug’s.

Another devastating example of the effects this child abuse was of Vicky, who put her 10 year-old daughter Shaina on a psychotropic drug after receiving a letter from the school psychologist stating that her daughter should be evaluated for ADD.

Shaina died after a toxic level of the drug built up in her system. Patricia and Al refused to listen to their school when they suggested their son take a drug. They are currently in litigation with the school, who they say accused them of abuse for not medicating their child.

Actress Juliette Lewis is against drugging children with ADD, and is involved with “Parents For Label & Drug Free Education”http://ablechild.org/ ‘Parents for Label and Drug Free Education’ consists of a growing number of parents outraged over the pervasive and ever-growing drugging of our children.

What About Drugs & Surgery that are necessary?

Can they help? 
There are times when Drugs or Surgery are necessary, but it’s your job as a loving parent to know the difference between Necessary and ‘Popping pills because they don’t know what else to do’.

Drugs and surgery, commonly prescribed for ailments, can make your child ‘feel better’ in the short term but…there areMANY drawbacks to medication and surgery.

They are not designed to correct these chronic conditions and produce health.

DRUGGING YOUR CHILD IS NOT THE ANSWER

“If reading all the warning labels on prescription drugs doesn’t scare you…. nothing will.”

For chronic illnesses, pediatric care often rely too heavily on medicine and surgery that may only ease your child’s symptoms in the short term, with no thought of what the long term effects will be. An unwanted side effect of all drugs is toxicity in your child’s body. Surgery also has its own potential dangers and side effects.

The distinct power of natural care is that it can help your child’s body address the source of the problem. The body can then heal itself over time lessening or eliminating the need for surgery or continued use of drugs.
