Is There An Alternative To The Over-Drugging Of American School Children?

• By Bill Sardi

Symptoms of ADHD
aggression, excitability, fidgeting, hyperactivity, impulsivity, irritability, lack of restraint, or persistent repetition of words or actions

Cognitive: absent-mindedness, difficulty focusing, forgetfulness, problem paying attention, or short attention span

Mood: anger, anxiety, boredom, excitement, or mood swings

The fidgeting, forgetfulness and lack of attention have certainly been evident in my own son along with symptoms of dyslexia.

Symptoms of dyslexia:   

Cognitive: difficulty memorizing, difficulty spelling, or difficulty thinking and understanding, left/right confusion.

Developmental: learning disability or speech delay in a child

Also common: delayed reading ability, headache, or speech impairment

Now children's behavior experts are calling for greater use of stimulant drugs to treat this condition that appears to emanate from a common mineral deficiency.  But of course, doctors want to treat this condition like it is a drug deficiency disorder rather than an emanation from modern diets that can now be characterized as "high calorie malnutrition."

While five percent of kids are thought to have ADHD, only a tenth of the 5% receive the stimulant drugs.  Experts say amphetamine stimulant drugs (Ritalin, Adderall) are 78% effective.
