FATHER OF ADHD: "IT IS A FICTITIOUS DISEASE!"

Okay, breathe, and just take this in slowly, especially if you are a person who was diagnosed with ADHD, or the parent of a child who was so diagnosed, or even if you are simply someone who has blindly revered or believed in the integrity of the medical profession.

Ready?


Leon Eisenberg, the psychiatrist who came up with the diagnosis, considered to be "the father of ADHD," admitted on his death bed that the diagnosis was fictitious.


Once again, with feeling - THIS is from the news article on Natural News.com


"On his death bed, this psychiatrist and autism pioneer, Dr. Leon Eisenberg, admitted that ADHD is essentially a 'fictitious disease,' which means that millions of young children today are being needlessly prescribed severe mind-altering drugs that will set them up for a life of drug addiction and failure."


Now, let me say this - while I was involved very early on in the fight against Ritalin, and its relatives like clonapine, adderal, welbutrin...etc. (the list is longer than the wine list at my favorite restaurant), all the "medications" that were given to children diagnosed as "hyperactive" (drugs, in other words, meant to take the edge off of their souls so they could sit still and do their math problems), and while I was very passionate about this fight back in the 1980's and '90's, I do not believe today that anyone is doomed to a life of "addiction and failure." We create our own reality and our abilities to heal emotional, psychological and emotional injuries through holistic means and mainly through raising consciousness is greater than ever collectively and individually.


In addition, I am no longer fighting against the undeveloped forces that ruled the medical and pharmaceutical industries in 3D, because (a.) I am no longer in 3D, and (b.) hating war is not the same as loving peace. Regarding "a." above, in 5D, the medical establishment is transforming itself without my help, as are all the undeveloped forces in business, religion and government, etc., through the exposure of themselves to themselves and/or to the collective consciousness. The very fact of Dr. Eisenberg's deathbed admission speaks to that. 


Regarding "b." above, see my post "NOBODY NEEDS ME (HATING WAR IS NOT THE SAME AS LOVING PEACE!)"


Folks, as I've reminded my readers often, and as I'm being reminded of often as well, this is 5D. It isn't possible any longer to live by the dictates of the ego or the lower self with any amount of "success." Revelation and self-revelation is the order of the day. Stay with it.

Bravo, PL, that you continue to bring awareness and skepticism to this issue. How much of ADHD is a dopamine-deficiency, and how much of it simply reflects that a particular way that humans are wired that does not compute with our modern way of life? The "Hunter-Farmer" theory even suggests that ADHD-ish-brains, far from pathological, were an adaptive trait that allowed our hunter ancestors to hyper-focus on the task at hand and disregard all the boring stuff. Where would all the historical artists, intellectual, poets, inventors who clearly had an ADHD-ish brain be if they had medicated their brains into the neurotypical range? Props also for citing the danger of drugging our children and younger and younger ages and consigning them to a lifetime of medication dependency.

While it's hard out there for those of us who don't fit that neurological mold- this does not mean our wiring is 'pathological' nor does it mean stimulant medication is an appropriate response.

AND YET, on a 3-D level here, ADHD-ish symptoms are REAL and they present REAL problems. Ask a young person with scatter-brain tendencies who is struggle to finish school, hold her jobs, pay bills, and ultimate navigate our our sensory-processing-labor market, and odds-are- they'd be pressed to call their ADHD-brain a gift. Sadly our global economy is such that we don't have the capacity to tailor-mold everyone a customized, personalized job that matches their distinct neurobiology and optimizes their gifts. Indeed, we live in a one-size -its all, information processing age, where prolonged executive functions in our prefrontal cortex are the goldstandard of professional competence. Likewise, many people do not have access to ADHD coaches, neurofeedback practitioners, naturopaths, or the myriad of other healers who are working outside of big Pharma. Those of us that do have that access been truly fortunate. Thanks again for your post!
