- BRATTLEBORO, VT, September 20, 2006 - Only a short time ago the FDA ordered that Dexedrine (whose active ingredient is Dextroamphetamine sulfate which is actually a Schedule II controlled substance) carry its strongest warning known as a "black box warning" advising doctors and patients that misuse can lead to sudden death...serious heart problems, and rare psychotic behavior. The warning goes on to say that adults taking the drug could be at an even higher risk of experiencing serious heart problems than children. Stimulant drugs like: Dexedrine, Adderall, and Ritalin are commonly used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
and have been linked to more than 24 deaths so far. What's more alarming to some people is how easily one can be misdiagnosed as having ADD or ADHD. This issue has even caught the attention of the United Nations' Committee on the Rights of the Child. They reported in September of 2005 their fear that ADD and ADHD "are being misdiagnosed and therefore psycho-stimulant drugs are being over-prescribed, despite the growing evidence of the harmful effects of these drugs."
This is why it's so important to explore natural, alternative
ways of treating ADHD in both children in adults. A Certified Hypnotherapist (CHT) from Brattleboro Vermont named Tellman Knudson believes that attention deficit hyperactivity disorder symptoms (or "traits" as he refers to them) can be controlled naturally and harnessed into becoming a massive advantage in life. In Tellman's own private practice he's helped hundreds of people triumph over and transform these traits with some very simple mindset changes and techniques.
"I have had ADHD
symptoms since I was born. So, on top of my experience helping people with my InstantADDsuccess.com program, what makes me qualified is I know ADHD from the inside... Once you realize that every single weakness, every single thing you don't like about yourself, that you think is holding you back, that you think is holding you down. I can teach you how to use that as a strength, every single one! After you understand that your ADHD symptoms can be your advantage, you have made the most important decision right there: to stop seeing yourself as a victim of ADHD symptoms, and see yourself as a person with amazing potential for success in anything you do. All you have to do is reach out and grasp this knowledge, and you've taken the first step, you're on your way." said Knudson
Big pharmaceutical companies profit handsomely every single year as hundreds, if not thousands of children and adults are misdiagnosed with attention-deficit disorder (ADD)
or ADHD. It's estimated that upwards of 1.5 million adults and 2.5 million children currently take ADHD medications. In 2005 it's reported that the top treatments generated around $3.5 billion in sales. Even despite the dangers of these kinds of drugs it's obvious that big pharma wants you and your kids on drugs whether you need them or not. With the controversial New Freedom Commission on Mental Health established by President Bush in April of 2002 the problem may only get worse. The commission recommended screening of American adults for possible mental illnesses, and children for emotional disturbances, so that those with suspected disabilities could then be provided with support services and state-of-the-art treatment, often in the form of newer psychoactive drugs. This in itself sounds actually quite caring and benevolent. But if everyone has to be screened and even one-tenth of us are misdiagnosed think how negatively that would affect our national mental and physical health.
One of the best ways to solve these problems is to take the traits of ADHD: Inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity
and see that this type of energy is really a blessing in disguise and with a little help can be focused tightly in order to accomplish anything. Knudson teaches these kinds of mindset changes. "I'm not going to tell anyone that they have attention deficit disorder. I have absolutely no interest in doing that. What I am interested in is helping people overcome their ADHD symptoms
and go on to be confident, fully successful and functional adults." says Knudson
