May Cause Death BUT – Safe? / Another Simple Solution

“For the greater individual
is the one who is the servant of all.
And to conquer self is greater than taking many cities.
For, here ye may find humbleness
as against that which cries oft for expression,
and the feeling of not being appreciated.
Express it more in the greater amount of love
upon those who may be aided through thy effort.
For, remember, man looks upon the things of the day
but God looks upon the heart
.”
–  Edgar Cayce

From the National Briefs of the Baltimore Sun – The makers of Ritalin, Adderall, Stratera and other drugs that treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder were advised by the government to give patients and parents an additional warning that those medicines can cause SERIOUS psychiatric and heart problems, including SUDDEN DEATH.

Now, for the sadly humorous part. After this stern and serious warning comes this from OUR government employee:
Dr. Tom Laughren, Director of psychiatry products for the F. D. A., who emphasized that the move was precautionary and should not FRIGHTEN patients from taking the drugs, which he said are SAFE!
You simply cannot make this stuff up.
Of course this warning is not inclusive enough. Ritalin is a highly addictive stimulant drug and is the pharmaceutical equivalent to cocaine. It is classified by our government as a psychoactive drug with cocaine and morphine because it is highly addictive.

Please read Why French Kids Don’t Have ADHD posted on Jan. 13, 2014 on this website (William’s Weblog).

The Physicians’ Desk Reference admits evidence on the carcinogenicity of Ritalin. Apart from cancer risks, there is also evidence that Ritalin induces genetic damage in blood cells of Ritalin-treated children.

My dear Parents, please, I beg of you now and forever more, remove your precious child from these harmful and highly addictive substances. There are many other things you can now do, rather than use dangerous chemicals to mask what you assume is a problem. Your common sense will guide you down the pathway of salvation.

I believe the first is to realize that there is no problem. You think you have a hyperactive boy? No. He is just a normal, healthy child who needs to exercise his rapidly developing body. Personally, I can attest to the fact that I have never met a hyperactive child, not in over forty years of providing for the needs of children.

By the way, sports programs put highly active children to good use. So why not take advantage of all that energy and give the team a few extra points. Sports programs are a viable way to give credit and trophies and ribbons and headlines and exercise and a great appetite and new friends and admirers to the so called hyper-active child. Let’s turn what you, the pill popping Doctor or the educator (suffering what I call: L. T. S. – lazy teacher syndrome) may view as a disadvantage into what is really a great advantage in life. On your way to letting your child try out for a spot on a team, flush all those dumb pills together with all stupid advice down the toilet. Flush it twice!

Please remember: there is nothing wrong with your child. God created each one of us in His Image. He created us the way He wanted us to be. We are perfect in His Sight.

Send your child to school with a T-shirt that says: Don’t Mess With Texas and DON’T MESS WITH ME! I shall always be DRUG FREE.

Second, if he (or possibly she) is driving you crazy, welcome to the real world. So open the back door and put him in the back yard, playing with other kids and a big dog – you know, slightly more active than he is. Better yet, show him or her how to use a hammer and nails and let the kid build a tree house. Closer to Heaven is where he belongs – up in the tree house. And buy some band-aids. Carpentry is one of those avocations where mistakes are valuable and painful. You never have to tell a child to keep his eye on the nail twice. The hammer is indeed a powerful teacher using natural teaching methodology. Don’t ask me how I know this.

And give your child a list of things to do to help you. Hey, they owe you a lot! And, believe it or not, they will love to help you. You may consider paying for their service. Did money not provide motivation for you to work? Please do NOT give your child money. We are not out to create potential political candidates with unrealistic expectations living in an unreal world. Always let your children EARN what they receive. As Mrs. Anderson is fond of saying, “Money should be equal to work”. And while they are playing outside remember, absence does indeed make the heart grow fonder. Too much togetherness means – not everyone will return from a two year trip to Mars. Someone will get booted out on the way back!

Third. Provide environments that are flexible and surround your normally active (not hyper – it does not really exist) child with people, you know, adults, that understand normal child development and are citizens of the real world (some are not). Remove your child from the presence of others who are intolerant – they are probably on something themselves.

Please do not permit corporate-driven and financially incentivized entities, or just plain lazy teachers, to turn your son or daughter into a nearly comatose and endangered member of our species, with drugs they will not themselves take. Your child is not an experimental lab rat.

Remember, you can lose the precious personality of the child you adore. These drugs will do that. I have witnessed it. Or worse, you can lose your child. Now, let’s turn to something positive we can do.

My dear friends, we have suffered enough
Our ignorance, coupled with the intolerable greed and arrogance of corporate America, has led us down a broad avenue of disease and malnutrition. Yes, we have had enough. Friends, our children deserve better. You deserve better. And the Internet, as laced as it is with pitfalls and danger, is also a pathway to freedom. It is a tool, just a tool, as are many other technologies. And in the right hands, your hands, it can lead you to a better quality of life and longer life for you and your children.
The use of it requires thoughtfulness and a guiding hand, which happens to be your hand. Please allow me to share a beautiful story of hope and salvation with you. It comes From NaturalNews. This article has enormous implications for prevention and cure. It directly relates to you and your child. Please take time and read it and contemplate its findings. It provides yet another simple solution.

Fish Oil saves life of boy with brain injury

Thursday, October 25, 2012 by P. F. Louis
High school student Bobby Ghassemi was taken out of his crashed vehicle and airlifted to a nearby Virginia hospital more dead than alive with severe brain trauma.He was so much more dead than alive that the physician who eventually advised the Ghassemi family on using fish oil, Dr. Michael Lewis said, “For all intents and purposes, he was dead on the scene.I’m looking at the reports, and they report a Glasgow Coma Score of three. A brick or piece of wood has a Glascow Coma Score of three. It’s dead. “Bobby was placed in intensive care in a coma with all the apparatus possible to keep him a breath from death. His brain was flooded with blood and a hole had to be put into his skull to relieve some of the pressure.The hospital’s physicians commented that his brain injury was so bad, it was a wonder that he was alive enough to be in a coma. They told Bobby’s father and mother it was doubtful he’d be more than a vegetable if he came out of the coma. He’d be unable to speak or recognize his family.

Time for a drastic intervention

After 10 days, Bobby was still comatose. His dad, Peter, felt more should be done than maintaining stability in a coma. So he started asking around to old Army buddies and was led to Army colonel Dr. Micheal Lewis who recommended fish oil based on an early episode of a West Virginia coal miner who barely survived a mining accident with severe brain damage. His condition had resembled Bobby’s.

The 26-year-old miner, Randall McCloy, was “on death’s doorstep,” according to Randall’s hospital neurosurgeon, Dr. Julian Bailes. He and the other doctors then decided to forgo the normal wait and see after Randall was stabilized in intensive care.

They decided to take a radical course from normal AMA protocol and put Randall into hyperbaric therapy to increase oxygen to his brain while administering fish oil through Randall’s feeding tube. After a brain injury, even as some recovery is noticed, the brain cells continue dieing from progressive inflammation.

Dr. Bailes knew that the brain needs to feed on omega-3 fatty acids to heal inflammation as well as stimulate brain and nervous system cell growth. After discussing Randall’s condition with fish oil omega-3 experts, Dr. Bailes determined that 20 grams fed through Randall’s feeding tube daily might bring him around.

20 grams is 10 times more than what an uninjured person would supplement with fish oil. Dr. Lewis explained the Dr. Bailes intervention with Randall to Bobby’s dad, who thought the whole thing strange. But he realized that three months after the mining accident, Randall McCloy left the hospital walking and talking.

At first, the hospital staff resisted Peter’s urging to try the fish oil therapy on his son Bobby. Their viewpoint was that the McCloy incident was just one anecdotal episode and not worth pursuing, perhaps even risky. But Peter persisted strongly and they finally yielded.

Today, at age 20, Bobby smiles as he recalls his high school graduation where he took off his cap and waved it to the cheering students. His dramatic recovery has left him with some weakness on the left side of his body and difficulty walking, but he’s back.

Yet, even after two successful applications of omega-3 fish oil for extremely brain damaged victims who recovered rapidly after both were written off from any significant recovery, the medical establishment only equivocates and considers the possibility of someday exploring omega-3 fish oil “scientifically” for brain traumas.

Why French Kids Don’t Have ADHD / ROLLERLAND WEST

Now, I think Dr. A is this old!

Now, I think Dr. A is this old!

French parents believe that hearing the word “no”
rescues children from the
“tyranny of their own desires.”

The following information is intended to supplement, not substitute for, the expertise and judgment of your physician, pharmacist or healthcare professional.

(This information is from, “French children don’t need medications        to control their behavior”. Published on March 8, 2012                             by Marilyn Wedge, Ph.D. in Suffer the Children. click here to read full article)

In the United States, at least 9% of school-aged children have been diagnosed with ADHD / ADD, and are taking pharmaceutical medications. But in France, the percentage of kids medicated for ADHD is less than one half of one percent (.5%). Why has the epidemic of ADHD / ADD in the United States almost completely passed over children in France?

In the United States, psychiatrists consider ADHD to be a biological disorder with the preferred treatment also biological–psycho stimulant medications such as Ritalin and Adderall.

French child psychiatrists, on the other hand, view ADHD as a medical condition that has psycho-social and situational causes. Instead of treating children’s focusing and behavioral problems with drugs, French doctors prefer to look for the underlying issue that is causing the child distress—not in the child’s brain but in the child’s social context. They then choose to treat the underlying social context problem with psychotherapy or family counseling. This is a very different way of seeing things from the American tendency to attribute all symptoms to a biological dysfunction such as a chemical imbalance in the child’s brain.

French child psychiatrists don’t use the same system of classification of childhood emotional problems as American psychiatrists. They do not use the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders or DSM. According to Sociologist Manuel Vallee, the French Federation of Psychiatry developed an alternative classification system. The focus of this system (CFTMEA) is on identifying and addressing the underlying psychosocial causes of children’s symptoms, not on finding the best pharmacological bandaids with which to mask symptoms.

Information is sometimes found in strange places

Information is sometimes found in strange places

To the extent that French clinicians are successful at finding and repairing what has gone awry in the child’s social context, fewer children qualify for the ADHD diagnosis. Moreover, the definition of ADHD is not as broad as in the American system, which, in my view, tends to “pathologize” much of what is normal childhood behavior. The DSM specifically does not consider underlying causes. It thus leads clinicians to give the ADHD diagnosis to a much larger number of symptomatic children, while also encouraging them to treat those children with pharmaceuticals.

The French holistic, psychosocial approach also allows for considering nutritional causes for ADHD symptoms – specifically the fact that the behavior of some children is worsened after eating foods with artificial colors, certain preservatives, and/or allergens. Clinicians who work with troubled children in this country—not to mention parents of many ADHD kids—are well aware that dietary interventions can sometimes help a child’s problem. In the United States, the strict focus on pharmaceutical treatment of ADHD, however, encourages clinicians to ignore the influence of dietary factors on children’s behavior.

And then, of course, there are the vastly different philosophies of child-rearing in the United States and France. These divergent philosophies could account for why French children are generally better-behaved than their American counterparts. Pamela Druckerman highlights the divergent parenting styles in her recent book, “Bringing up Bébé”. I believe her insights are relevant to a discussion of why French children are not diagnosed with ADHD in anything like the numbers we are seeing in the United States.

From the time their children are born, French parents provide them with a firm cadre—the word means “frame” or “structure.” Children are not allowed, for example, to snack whenever they want. Mealtimes are at four specific times of the day. French children learn to wait patiently for meals, rather than eating snack foods whenever they feel like it. French babies, too, are expected to conform to limits set by parents and not by their crying selves. French parents let their babies “cry it out” if they are not sleeping through the night at the age of four months.

French parents, Druckerman observes, love their children just as much as American parents. They give them piano lessons, take them to sports practice, and encourage them to make the most of their talents. But French parents have a different philosophy of discipline. Consistently enforced limits, in the French view, make children feel safe and secure. Clear limits, they believe, actually make a child feel happier and safer—something that is congruent with my own experience as both a therapist and a parent. Finally, French parents believe that hearing the word “no” rescues children from the “tyranny of their own desires.”

As a therapist who works with children, it makes perfect sense to me that French children don’t need medications to control their behavior because they learn self-control early in their lives. The children grow up in families in which the rules are well-understood, and a clear family hierarchy is firmly in place. In French families parents are firmly in charge of their kids – instead of the American family style, in which the situation is all too often vice versa.

QUOTE - Monnig Meteorite Gallery 045Forty years after the drug was first marketed, carcinogenicity (cancer) tests were conducted by the National Toxicology Program, the results of which were published in 1995. Adult mice were fed Ritalin over a two-year period at dosages close to those prescribed to children. The mice developed a statistically significant incidence of liver abnormalities and tumors, including highly aggressive rare cancers known as hepatoblastomas.

The Physicians’ Desk Reference admits evidence on the carcinogenicity of Ritalin.

Apart from cancer risks, there is also suggestive evidence that Ritalin induces genetic damage in blood cells of Ritalin-treated children.

Methylphenidate (Ritalin, Ritalin SR, Ritalin LA, Concerta, Methylin, Methylin ER, Metadate CD, Metadate ER) prescribed for the treatment of ADHD and Narcolepsy), is classified by our government as a psychoactive drug with cocaine and morphine because it is highly addictive.

The long term effects of methylphenidate on the developing brain are

unknown. Methylphenidate is derived from amphetamines, a powerful class of stimulant drugs, and is known on the street as rids, pineapple, uppers, jif, vitamin R and R-ball. Whatever its name, methylphenidate (Ritalin,etc.) is the pharmaceutical equivalent to cocaine.

Even under a physician’s care, methylphenidate addiction can occur because this medication is a highly addictive stimulant drug that works by increasing the dopamine levels in your brain. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), dependency can occur whether the medication is taken under a physician’s supervision or when it is taken recreationally, because your body becomes tolerant to the drug and higher dosages are required to achieve the same high.

In the United States, methylphenidate is classified by the Drug Enforcement Agency as a Schedule II controlled substance with a high potential for abuse. This classification is because of methylphenidate’s high addictive potential. When crushed and snorted, methylphenidate can have the same effects as cocaine in terms of the high it produces. This euphoria is highly addictive.

Methylphenidate addiction treatment is necessary when patients who have taken this medication to treat ADHD, suddenly develop seizures or hypertension. Methylphenidate addiction treatment must begin with detoxification. Methylphenidate detox is the process in which the patient stops using the drug abruptly, and as a result withdrawal symptoms occur. Because methylphenidate is often taken for long periods of time, the likelihood of physical or psychological dependence is high.

Stimulants like methylphenidate can also increase blood pressure, body temperature and heart rate to dangerous levels, and long term repeated use can further lead to acts of hostility and feelings of paranoia. At higher doses, methylphenidate can cause cardiovascular problems such as strokes.

Touching is believing!

Texas researchers have found that after just three months, every one of a dozen children treated for attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) with the drug methylphenidate experienced a threefold increase in levels of chromosome abnormalities—occurrences associated with increased risks of cancer and other adverse health effects. Here is but one of the others:

Chromosome Abnormalities Raise Risk for Autism. Autism is growing at epidemic proportions, and so is the money being dedicated to genetic studies like this. According to one study, published Jan. 9 in the online edition of the New England Journal of Medicine, a section of chromosome 16 is deleted or duplicated in about 1 percent of people with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). About 15 percent of autism cases have known genetic causes. This latest paper follows closely on the heels of another study, which was published in the Dec. 21 online issue of Human Molecular Genetics, that found the exact same deletion was significantly associated with autism.

Researchers at The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston and the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston (UTMB) reported their detection of the chromosome abnormalities in the journal Cancer Letters.

The researchers say that, to their knowledge, this is the first study addressing the potential chromosome-breaking effects associated with treatment of children with methylphenidate, the generic name for a group of drugs that includes Ritalin, Concerta, Metadate CD and others.

Most of the abnormalities found in the studied blood cells consisted of chromosome breaks “and a higher frequency of aberrations is reported to be associated with an increased risk of cancer down the line,” said lead author Randa A. El-Zein, M.D., Ph.D., an assistant professor of epidemiology at M.D. Anderson, who performed the blood studies

Concerns on Ritalin’s cancer risk are more acute in view of the millions of children treated annually with the drug and the escalating incidence of childhood cancer, by some 35% over the last few decades, quite apart from delayed risks of cancer in adult life. These risks are compounded by the availability of alternative safe and effective procedures, notably behavior modification and biofeedback.

There is no justification for prescribing Ritalin, even by highly qualified pediatricians and psychiatrists, unless parents have been explicitly informed of the drug’s cancer risks. Otherwise, prescribing Ritalin constitutes unarguable medical malpractice. This statement is from Samuel S. Epstein, M.D., emeritus Professor Environmental Medicine, University of Illinois School of Public Health, Chicago, and Chairman, Cancer Prevention Coalition.
