ADHD Not a Real Disease, Says Leading Neuroscientist!

World’s leading neuroscientists has stated that ADHD is not a real disease!

One of the world’s leading pediatric neuroscientists, Dr. Bruce D. Perry, M.D., Ph.D, recently stated publicly that Attention Deficit/Hyper-Activity Disorder (ADHD) is not ‘a real disease,’ and warned of the dangers of giving psycho-stimulant medications to children.

“It is best thought of as a description. If you look at how you end up with that label, it is remarkable because any of us at any given time would fit at least a couple of those criteria.”

When you read the symptoms of ADHD, it describe everybody!

  • Difficulty paying attention to details and a tendency to make mistakes at school or other activities, producing work that is often messy and careless.
  • Easily distracted by irrelevant stimuli and frequently interrupting ongoing tasks to attend to trivial noises or events that are usually ignored by others.
  • Inability to sustain attention on tasks or activities..
  • Difficulty finishing schoolwork or paperwork or performing tasks that require concentration.
  • Disorganized work habits.
  • Forgetfulness in daily activities.
  • Failure to complete tasks such as homework or chores.

Doctors warn AGAINST the use of the medications used to treat the fake disease. They say that they are dangerous to the overall physical and mental development of a child.

ADHD Is simply a term used to describe a number of behavioral problems, and no one ever considers the root of the problem they just go straight for the pharmaceuticals, to fix the problem of their children acting like children. Remember,  there are so many natural therapies to calm a child/person down that should always be considered before the medication.

“Part of what happens is if you have an anxious, overwhelmed parent, which is contagious. When a child is struggling, the adults around them are easily dysregulated too. This negative feedback process between the frustrated teacher or parent and dis-regulated child can escalate out of control.

“You can teach the adults how to regulate themselves, how to have realistic expectations of the children, how to give them opportunities that are achievable and have success and coach them through the process of helping children who are struggling.

“There are a lot of therapeutic approaches. Some would use somatosensory therapies like yoga, some used motor activity like drumming.

“All have some efficacy. If you can put together a package of those things: keep the adults more mannered, give the children achievable goals, give them opportunities to regulate themselves, then you are going to minimise a huge percentage of the problems I have seen with children who have the problem labelled as ADHD.”

There will be many people who disagree with ADD/ADHD not being considered a disease, but the fact is that the symptoms associated with the increasingly common disorders that can be addressed without dangerous medications.
