Scientific Breakthrough for ADHD Excludes Basics of Child Rearing
Once again, science has stumbled on a solution to the behavioral problems in children who they have labeled ADHD. Apparently, parents are complaining about medicating their children and many have learned that maybe psychopathological drugs are not the answer.
Now that many adults who were once takers of ADHD medication when they were children, are grown with even more disturbing psychological disorders, science have taken a new approach. Instead of medication, they are going to try a retro form of shock therapy.
According to a new report, "The FDA has just approved the first, non-drug medical device to treat ADHD in children. It works by delivering a low-level electrical pulse through a patch on a child's forehead and will be marketed as a treatment for children from 7 to 12 years old who do not currently take prescribed medication for the disorder."
The patch is placed on the child's forehead while they sleep. "It emits a low level electrical pulse that essentially stimulates a cranial nerve called the trigeminal nerve and the idea is that nerve then sends signals into the brain particularly to the areas that are important for attention, for functioning and behavior," Dr. Tara Narula said on "CBS This Morning."
This sounds like a Syfy movie where the child wakes up with abnormal powers and goes on to either terrorize the neighborhood or change the world by defeating a giant robot.
At one time the medical field tried this with mental patients in insane asylums during the early nineteenth century. It was called electro shock therapy and it did not work out like they thought. It only made the patients more withdrawn and sometimes violent; also, "the convulsions were so violent that many patients broke bones or fractured their spines."
So, not only is the United States been going backward politically and civilly since the election of 2016, but now science is taking us back 100 years medically. "An estimated 6.1 million children have been diagnosed with ADHD in the U.S., according to a national survey of children's health in 2016."
The truth is; parents and child psychologist are baffled as to how to raise children. They do not understand that simply because children are acting out does not mean they are hyper or over active, which ADHD claims they are. It simply means they are probably bored, pumped with chemicals from fast foods and sugar, or are acting out because their parents are not around much anymore because of long work hours.
Instead of acknowledging that maybe, just maybe, a lack of parent-child quality time could be the problem; they have resorted to drugging, imprisoning, and using other forms of constraint. Now, they have resorted all the way back to the 1900s to solve the problem.
According to the doctor, "If their function is limited academically, socially, emotionally, that's when you might want your child to be seen and evaluated and they may in fact have it."
No, how about sitting down and talking to or actually disciplining the child instead of taking them to a doctor. The child will assume there is a problem with them and begin to exhibit other strange forms of behavior just to get the extra attention, or even the drugs.
"We know that a third of these kids have other disorders like anxiety disorders or mood disorders," she said. "A third will go on to get symptoms into adulthood and the issue is that it really can be associated with increased risk of substance abuse, injuries, either accidental or intentional, poor self-esteem, poor academic performance."
Yes, that is what is wrong with adults nowadays; they are the victims of the pharmaceutical drug companies who made billions off the ADHD medications. Those same people are now taking other forms of drugs to balance out the childhood drugs they took. And the cycle continues.
Anyone with a bit of common sense and patience for children must see through this and understand that the more a child is experimented on throughout their life, the more chance they will have issues as they age.
