Drugging Kids

Many many people are prescribed psychoactive drugs for Psychological disorders. But what are the causes and effects of these alleged disorders? Are these diagnoses conducted scientifically, Or is something else taking place?

After researching the subject, I’ve discovered that almost all doctors’ or clinicians’ diagnoses of ADHD, bipolar disorder, clinical depression, and others, are not based on scientific tests. The diagnoses is not arrived at from any scientific method, but Rather on a criteria of behavioral symptoms. This criteria of behavioral symptoms is solely used to reach the diagnosis. The interesting thing is, drugs used to treat these various disorders, also cause side effects (or better termed, primary effects)identical to the behavioral symptoms used to diagnose other disorders. This leads to a patient (or victim) most often being prescribed a cocktail of psychotropic drugs to treat the various disorders It usually starts at childhood, with the victim being diagnosed as having ADD/ADHD. Dangerous ‘speed’ drugs are prescribed such as ritalin or adderall. These drugs cause side effects identical to the behavioral symptoms clinicians use to make a ‘bipolar disorder’ diagnosis. Then of course more drugs are prescribed. It is estimated, that around 50,000 children have died as a result of taking these drugs, as prescribed, in the past 20 years.

Here’s a quick run down of the symptoms, drugs, and side effects involved in this cycle. This process is now started on children between the ages of 0 and 3. This is, in itself, shocking and alarming. Criteria for diagnosing a child age 0 – 3 as needing dangerous drugs, include not being ‘social’ enough. New disorders are being created constantly, and these issues should be articles in their own rite. For time sake, I’m going to focus on what is most common, well known, and documented.

The behavioral symptoms used to identify, or label a child with ADD/ADHD are:
B)hyperactivity / impulsiveness
D)Many other vague descriptions of questionable symptoms to effectively list.
-note: These ‘symptoms’ are common in any child who watches too much television and gets too little exercise.

The most common drugs used to treat ADHD are:
2)Adderall (outlawed in the 70’s, now in use)
-note: These are ‘speed’ drugs.

The side effects (or primary effects) of the drugs used to treat ADHD are:
A)psychosis (mania)
B)thoughts of suicide
C)psychotic behavior (in 1 out of 10 children)
D)aggression/violent behavior (in 1 out of 5 children)
E)other side effects

The symptoms used to brand an individual as having bipolar disorder are:
A)psychosis (mania)
B)thoughts of suicide
C)psychotic behavior
D)aggression/violent behavior
E)many other vague descriptions of behavioral attributes

Do you see the pattern? The side effects of the drugs used to treat ADHD are also the criteria used to diagnose an individual as having bipolar disorder, and the behavioral criteria used to diagnose an individual with ADHD are common in most boys, especially those who exercise too little, and spend too much time in front of a tv or computer screen. This is why so many people are diagnosed, and treated, for ADHD as a child, and then diagnosed and treated for bipolar disorder as a teenager.

Clinical depression is another very common ‘disorder’ which is almost always diagnosed strictly based on question and answer sessions, rather than scientific testing. Typically, a person will feel depressed when factors in their life are not to their satisfaction, or when serotonin levels in the brain are low. Serotonin is the ‘conductor’ for ‘feel good’ receptors in the brain. The human body uses tryptophan (found in bananas) to produce serotonin.

A 24 hour urine analysis to test for 5-HIAA, can determine if serotonin levels are below normal. However doctors (or whomever) almost never conduct this test before prescribing harmful drugs. If the analysis shows low levels of serotonin, a tryptophan supplement (bananas) can be added. After sufficient time taking the tryptophan supplement, a second 24 hour urine analysis can be done to determine if serotonin levels had increased. Again, this is almost never done.

In case this evidence isn’t enough to convince you, that the true purpose of mind/behavioral drugs is not what your doctor is telling you, here’s a quote from Aldous Huxley.

“There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and produce dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a type of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution.”
