Welcome

We provide a  guide to drug-free solutions for children’s behavior problems such as ADHD, bi-polar disorder, hyperactivity or other behavioral issues.

This website is dedicated to giving parents and others responsible for the care and rearing of a child a central place to go where they will find expert information and help on drug-free solutions to treating children’s behavior problems such as ADHD.

“Today in the US, millions of parents are being told by teachers, principals, counselors, special educators, psychologists, psychiatrists and physicians of all sorts, that their children cannot learn, and even, that they will not be permitted to come to school, unless they are taking Ritalin.  Frequently, it is implied that unless they do so, they are acting contrary to the best interests of their child, and that a court might see fit to limit or terminate their custody of their own child—all in the name of a “disease” that doesn’t exist!  That is a total, one hundred percent fraud.”

misledMany parents have at least one child who has been diagnosed with ADHD or some other “mental disorder”.  This is becoming more and more common a part of American society.

What many do not suspect is that labels such as “depression”, ADHD, bi-polar disorder and others are not a true medical diagnosis.  No physical tests exist to show whether or not your child has any “disorder” whatsoever; no blood test, x-ray, urine analysis, nothing.  The “diagnosis” such as ADHD is based on purely subjective criteria based on how the individual is feeling at the time, how they answer a short list of questions and how the medical doctor or psychiatrist interprets what the person has said. With children you have the added evaluation of what the adults around them tell the doctor relative to the child’s attitudes and behavior.  This also depends a great deal on how that adult feels about the child personally.

So you can see, based on all those subjective feelings just about any child could, at one time or another, be diagnosed with a mental disease or disorder like ADHD.

Based on the unproven theory that emotional and behavioral troubles stem from a chemical imbalance in the brain, the next step is usually the prescribing of one or more of a host of psychoactive drugs.  Not only do these drugs have a huge number of very serious side effects but it’s still unknown how the use of these drugs will affect a child physically and emotionally later in life.

However, just because the emotional and behavior problems your child is having are not the result of some “chemical imbalance” and don’t show up in any medical test does not mean these are not real or serious or vitally important. They are.  In fact, these problems are of such great importance that they should not be covered up by drugs.
