The pharmaceutical industry has completely taken over the treatment of medical and psychiatric treat,emt. Everything, and I am mean everything is geared towards getting every American on medication and keeping them on medication for the rest of their lives. There is no more vulnerable population, to this medical tyranny, than our children.
There is no greater example of this medical tyranny than the latest craze in unscientific psychiatric diagnostics than the brand new condition now being referred to as “Sluggish Cognitive Tempo” (SLT). I As a former mental health therapist, I can barely hold back my laughter at this thinly veiled attempt to separate parents from their hard earned money by making them think that the their perfectly normal child is mentally ill.

Sluggish Cognitive Tempo (lol)

This is a remarkably ridiculous name for an even more ludicrous diagnosis. The main characteristics of SLT  are vaguely described but include some combination of daydreaming, lethargy and slow mental processing, you know, like we do when we watch television.

The advocates of this diagnosis contend that SCT afflicts about two million children. And that great pharmaceutical whore, Eli Lilly, is waiting in the wings preparing to medicate the developing and highly vulnerable brains of these two million children with the latest in dangerous and mind-destroying psychotropic medications which will leave the user with a brain damaged future and a medical treatment history which will render many of these children with an uninsurable medical insurance future.

The Journal of Abnormal Child Psychology has sold its professional soul and its professional ethics to Big Pharma as it is seriously promoting this voodoo form of diagnostics. The latest issue of their publication donates a record 136 pages to the topic of SLT. And where do we find children with SLT? Probably standing next to the adults who have Restless Leg Syndrome.

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM)-Edition IV & V

DSM is the Bible of mental illnesses. The book serves a training guide for graduate and the PhD students as well as serving as a professional guide for treatment intervention amongst mental health practitioners.

By the time a child is 21 years of age, under DSM -IV guidelines, 80% of all young adults  qualify to be diagnosed as mentally ill and, as such, are subject to being medicated.

The newest version of DSM has made this problem far worse. Normal temper tantrums have been turned into a diagnosable and pharmacologically treatable illness called ‘Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder”. Normal adolescent rebellion is now being labeled as “Oppositional Defiant Disorder”. Normal childhood restlessness is now diagnosed as “ADHD” in children as early as two years of age.  Childhood Autism and childhood Bipolar Disorder are pharmaceutical goldmines and have increased forty fold in the last 20 years

The ADHD Scam

More than 10,000 American toddlers 2 or 3 years old are being medicated for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder outside established pediatric guidelines and professional medical practices, according to data recently presented by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

According to the CDC, 11% of the country’s children are diagnosed with ADHD. This is ludicrous and is just not possible. These children have ADHD according to whom? The answer to this question consists of two parts. First, Big Pharma is using its influence to “push” the diagnostic criteria in the direction of many more positive diagnoses. More diagnoses means more profit-making pill pushing. Second, there is no illness, with these kinds of unsustainable rates of diagnosis that could impact the population to this degree. If there really were an 11% rate of autism in this country, we would be forced to change what is considered to be normal behavior since most mental illness models are loosely based upon a bell curve distribution. Therefore, just based on the surface evidence, these diagnostic rates cannot justified.

If these medications are dangerous for children, we would not know because very few scientific studies have examined the use of ADHD stimulant medications in young children. A widely referenced 2006 study found that the ADHD medication, methylphenidate, could “somewhat” mitigate ADHD like symptoms in preschoolers. However, the study’s conclusions were based on researched derived from insufficiently sized researched groups. Only about a dozen 3-year-olds were included in the study, and there were no 2-year-olds, yet we continue to medicate these young vulnerable minds. Most researchers on that study, sponsored by the National Institute of Mental Health, have significant financial ties to pharmaceutical companies that made ADHD medications.

A multitude of studies indicates that children who are prescribed psychotropic drugs are much more likely to become drug addicts as adults.

Parents Are the First Line of Defense

If you have ever sat in the waiting room of your child’s pediatrician’s office and you have seen well-dressed, attractive young adults enter the office armed with notebooks as they are ushered in to see the doctor ahead of the waiting patients, then there is a very good chance that your doctor is a Big Pharma whore. The well-dressed pill pushers are there to your child’s doctor in order to “make deals” and promise bonuses for prescribing certain drugs. The odds are stacked against your child before they ever their doctor.

In combating this medical tyranny, parents are the only line of defense. However, parents must be very careful in how they express their refusal in not allowing their children to be diagnosed with bogus conditions and treated with dangerous drugs.

When your doctor offers to put your child on mind-numbing drugs, seek a second opinion. However, be very, very, careful how seek that second opinion as it could cost you custody of your child.

Beware of CPS

There is no system ever devised by mankind that is guaranteed to rip husband and wife or father, mother and child apart so bitterly than our present Family Court System.

Just ask  Jodi Ferris, Anna Nikolayev, or Justina Pelltier’s parents what happens when a parent dares to question the almighty doctor and seek a second opinion for their child. The doctor and his wounded ego will frequently call CPS and the parent’s problem goes from bad to worse.

My advice is simple if you desire to seek a second medical opinion for your child. Do not tell your child’s pediatrician that is your intention. Take the prescription that the doctor writes, just do not fill the prescription. Then schedule a second opinion visit with another doctor. If you get a disconfirming diagnosis, then make immediate arrangements to change doctors. Once your child has a different doctor, the authorities are powerless in seizing your child for medical neglect when the complaining doctor is no longer the physician of record and the second doctor is not making a recommendation to medicate.

 

Conclusion

Thirty million adults, about 40% of the adult population, are on anti-depressants. Twenty million, or about 66% of this group, should not be on anti-depressants. Adults can say no, it is not the same issue when it comes to medicating your child. However, your child doesn’t have that same choice. You, as the parent, must make that choice for them.

    This one is almost as ridiculous as the one for third-shift workers, I think they call it “SWD” (Shift Work Disorder). They really are desperate to get everyone on drugs!

    THE CHARACTER OF THE JUDGES

    Hi Everybody,

    Furthermore, the character of the Judges in the world’s Judgment Day is a guarantee of a favorable trial by the judgment process for the world of mankind. The chief Judge will be our Lord Jesus (Matt. 25: 31; Acts 17: 31; 2 Tim. 4: 1). On the one hand, His loyalty to God and to the principles of Truth and Righteousness maintained even amid suffering unto death, and on the other hand, His unselfish love to the world that prompted Him to sacrifice His life for their deliverance, sufficiently guarantee that He will be faithful, merciful and helpful toward all, as He assists the obedient upward out of their ruined condition. The fact that the faithful Ancient and Youthful Worthies as the earthly judges, and the faithful Bride of Christ and the Great Company as the heavenly judges, have by experience tasted the degradation and woes of sin and the difficulties of overcoming it, sufficiently attest their qualification in sympathy and service to deal with and uplift those who in that life will be in the same undone condition as were the Elect in this life. Such Judges will surely exercise all the mercy and faithfulness necessary to assist all to reform who will at all co-operate in the effort to uplift them. Hence the character of the Judges guarantees that the Judgment Day will afford the world every help to reform.

    P.S.L.J. The Millennium

    I’m so glad you are taking this on Dave. I would have been diagnosed with almost everyone of these “cognitive disorders” as a kid. Every child is created differently and every child contributes to the broad scope of talents, gifts and creativity that produces an ever expanding and growing society. We are made in the image of God..and they HATE that. They hate free thinkers that do not conform to their death cult/control agenda. They despise unfettered creativity.
    So what do they do to suppress humanity’s quest to find God and higher purpose?… They put up as many road blocks as possible to keep the “created” from seeking their “Creator” through the very gift He gave us to seek Him out. CONTROL the Mind, and you destroy the pathway to God. Absolute evil genius.

    Dave,

    This article is great, however in my opinion a lot of the symptoms and problems are due to VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and big Agra, not only GMO’s, but also the different chemicals (pesticides and herbicides) that are sprayed on our foods and then ending up in our water. Speaking of water, I ask my wife and daughter to pick up distilled water for me, looking at the labels some days later some of the jugs it read “steam distilled no added fluoride (or added fluoride, {yes, one flavor had fluoride added}) Nursery purified water with minerals added for flavor”. IT’S ALL AROUND US, you can not medicate against it. You also can not medicate kids against being kids.

    Be Safe-Be Well

    I swear, buddy……from what I can discern, NOBODY works as
    hard as you do. Your features are amazingly in-depth and exhaustive…..with A through Z coverage. As a journalist and broadcaster myself….believe me, I am FULLY AWARE of and impressed by how much time goes into your terrific reports. So let it be understood that you are very appreciated for the enlightenment you consistently provide!

    Can there be any better example that we live in a pathocracy, run by the pathocrates. The conscienceless psychopaths’ plan is to keep the population medicated starting with the kids so that there will be not future push back to their misrule.

    Psychopaths have no real talent or abilities. Their only goals are control and power. Every historical country and civilization in which they have gained control has turned to shit, exactly what’s happening to the former American Republic.

    Google psychopaths and learn everything you can about this genetic condition. Your future and future of your children and all normal people depends on this knowledge. Otherwise, we’re just spitting into the wind.

    Working as a deputy sheriff I see this everyday. I have responded to so many calls involving small chilren. The parents call because the child is acting out and when I get there they tell me their child is ADHD and they are having problems controlling them. This is 2, 3 and 4 year olds. It is terrible. Then you get calls for the teenagers and the parents tell you they are ADHD and they are not able to punish them for acting out or childrens services will be at the door. The people are so brain washed, the public schools system has told these children if your parents punish you REPORT THEM. The parents want their children to just sit still and not say anything. We are in big trouble.

    In 1906, mental illness/defect was feeble-minded. If someone was determined to be feeble-minded, they were stripped of being able to reproduce. Today, feeble-minded is mental illness/defect, and it stands to create additional penalties than just utilized for population control; it is also being utilized to strip individuals and groups of people of their rights and liberties reversing the Constitution as limits of governmental authority.
    This means not only is population control Neo-Malthusian style returning to open scientific power; it is also utilized as a means to conduct strip self-defense from the populace.
    There’s amble documentation that the Malthusian-Eugenics merger into Neo-Malthusianism is the scientific dictatorship.
    Similarly, if you look carefully at man-made climate change, CO2 correlates closer to the population of the Biosphere-Biomass. Biosphere is made up of carbon based lifeforms, and its complex organisms respective inhale oxygen and exhale CO2 or otherwise absorbs and releases oxygen and CO2 respectively.
    In other words, overpopulation is causing climate change requiring population control. Reduction of the Biomass population in the Biosphere reduces CO2 levels short of Volcanic and Lake Overturn.

    Totally agree with this article. The healthcare system has gone completely out of control and the bottom line is money and greed. You NEVER walk out of a doctors office without a prescription of some kind. The majority of people are over medicated and we have become a society of prescription drug junkies. We do need health providers but we don’t need drug pushers.

    Dear Seen2013 – the folks who are on this site are aware of UN Agenda 21, the Great Green Hoax and the fact that Hegelian Dialect can’t herd us towards the scam of phony man-made climate change.

    I suggest reading Dave’s older articles. Kindly keep your fictitious man-made climate hoax to yourself. Talking a bit of out talk then asserting the Green Hoax is insulting.
