Have you noticed that ADHD checklists name so many symptoms that you and everyone’s brother and child seem to fit a diagnosis?

It’s broad and so general that anyone who reads the checklist will be convinced they know a bunch of adults and children with ADHD.

The ADHD symptom checklist is so big that tons of people will wonder if they have this condition.

“Pharmacotherapy is a fancy term that means ‘treating illness with drugs,’” says Shane Ellison, a former pharmaceutical chemist from Santa Fe, New Mexico.

“The term is used to promote drugs as vitamins. The end result of course isn’t health. It’s more illness.

“In pharmacotherapy, the so-called cure is more dangerous than the illness. But it’s PROFITABLE.

“And this profit explains why Big Pharma, Big Government and physicians adhere to it.”

Is ADHD an actual medical condition?

Ellison explains, “Medical conditions must be measured by diagnostic testing. Take heart disease as an example.

“Before you undergo surgery for a stent, the doctor has to diagnose blockage due to inflammation before he begins surgery.

“The diagnosis is based on a stress test or angiogram. To claim heart disease without utilizing one of these diagnostic tests, then take part in surgery, is ridiculous.

“But this is exactly what they do with the invented disease ADHD.

“Without a true diagnosis, they convert perfectly healthy kids into patients, then drug addicts  –  speed freaks, to be exact.

“Unlike heart disease, ADHD is a figment of Big Pharma’s greedy imagination.”

Could “Your child has ADHD” really be a moneymaking scheme?

Ellison says, “Yes. In the drug industry, the moneymaking scam is known as disease mongering.

“It’s the single most effective way to sell drugs. You simply invent a problem (disease) and provide a perceived solution. This model arose when the drug industry ran out of symptoms to treat.”

But what about those kids who really DO seem to have behavior problems?

“There is no doubt that select children have relatively less focus, vibrant energy and wandering thoughts,” says Ellison.

“And drugs control such behavior. But it’s not so much a problem of the child as it is a problem of their environment (school curriculum or home life). Simply consider the shocking discovery of ADHD meds:

“Scientists learned to control mice  –  with drugs  –  when they were subjected to an overcrowded environment. The usually-tame mice turned aggressive.  The mice were not sick.

“They were simply reacting to a poor environment.  Instead of change their living space, chemists doped them up on today’s ADHD meds: amphetamines. They were quickly subdued.

“Today, the same drugs are used to control kids who are being forced to function in an environment that disrupts their behavior.

“Rather than curse the system, we label our kids sick! Then drug them.

“Then call it a cure. It’s a crime. And shortsighted doctors, teachers and parents are most guilty for allowing it to happen.”

“The U.S. government spends BILLIONS fighting a war on drugs that is primarily focused on ‘speed freaks’ and dealers of ‘speed.’

“Yet, our physicians are prescribing these drugs as Adderall, Dexedrine and Concerta to our children, while profiting immensely!”

Parents are even being told by school teachers and school nurses — who are not equipped to make a proper diagnosis — that their child has ADHD!

What advice do you have for a parent who’s just been told by the doctor, “Your child has ADHD”?

“Say no to drugs. If you are having a hard time getting your child to focus and stay alert, you have to realize that they are children, not sick!

“A child’s attention can be enhanced by putting him in an environment that works with his behavior, not against it. Proven nutritional and lifestyle habits can help, too.

“Start by cutting the sugar intake and loading their diets with healthy fats and proteins (eggs, avocados, grass-fed beef, whey isolate smoothies, nuts, seeds and cod liver oil).

“And most importantly, make sure they get plenty of exercise. Exercise helps our body tap into its own internal pharmacy.”
