– Take this in:
In the United States alone, at least 9 percent of kids are diagnosed with ADHD and are being treated with different kinds of pharmaceutical medications. The design of our school system is horribly outdated and provides little benefit in comparison to how transformative it could truly be.
Imagine schools like this, which funnily enough James cameron created; that allow you to create whatever you want.
Your teachers should be in support of what you want to do in life. Classrooms should be outside or at least in different, stimulating places.
Children should not be forced to sit in class rooms every day – it is completely keeping them from understanding their full potential.
This education system is in place for a very specific reason, and it’s all connected to the pharmaceutical and governmental systems.
Now, the percentage of children with AHDH in France is dramatically less at less than .5 percent.
So what is going on here?
Our medical system is a lot less honest. Child psychiatrists in the States consider ADHD as a biological order. As in, the neurons firing in your brain have to do with you alone and not your environment and social situations. This is absurd because your interaction with reality will determine how your brain functions, how it will process information and what different chemicals it will produce.
Why don’t our doctors understand this?
French child psychiatrists, on the other hand, see ADHD being linked to psycho-social and situational causes. Instead of drugging children, they focus on the behavioral problems and look for the underlying issue that is causing the child distress.
It does not exist in the child’s brain, but rather them in a social context. They treat the kids with different forms of counseling which is how it should be!
In France, fewer children qualify for the ADHD diagnosis. In the States, ADHD is a lot more broad and views normal childhood behavior as something that needs to be contained and medicated.
France is aware enough to even approach this holistically through nutritional and lifestyle changes. Ingredients like aspartame, artificial coloring or flavor, preservatives and GMO’s can contribute to this ‘disorder’.
Supposedly, the creator of “ADHD” said that it was a fictitious disorder. It doesn’t really exist, our society is just designed completely wrong.
So then we numb our delicate children’s brains out with harsh medication like Ritalin or Adderall, in hopes to calm them down, when children need to the opposite.
They need to be excited, run around and get their energy out. We are harming our younger generations so much! Please see this; it’s obvious to anyone who really looks.
