Feingold Diet for ADHD and Healthy Living

Where do food dyes come from? Those pretty colors that make the “fruit punch” red, the gelatin green and the oatmeal blue are made from petroleum (crude oil) which is also the source for gasoline.You will find them on the ingredient labels, listed as “Yellow No. 5,” “Red 40,” “Blue #1,” etc. The label may say “FD&C” before the number.

An ADHD Success Story Without Drugs

On Atypical_Antipsychotics Yahoo Group a mother writes:

Dear group:

I deeply appreciate being invited to this group.

I also deeply appreciate all of the members of this egroup.  You are all “fellow warriors” in my eyes… for fighting Big Pharma’s many lies for the sake of profits, and at the expense of human health.

Many of you have heard of my son Willy Darman’s rather amazing story of recovery from other egroups, as I have widely been circulating it (and its revisions) around the Internet for a few years.  I sincerely hope that you enjoyed it. Read the rest of this entry »

ADD and ADHD Drugs: Ritalin, Adderall, Concerta – Linked to Sudden Death – Seek Alternatives

2.5 million out of the 4 million U.S. children diagnosed with attention-deficit disorders are being treated with stimulant drugs. ADHD drugs like Ritalin, Adderall and Concerta supposedly help your child pay attention. Yes. I would imagine drugging your child into an obedient state might work to make them more manageable for both teacher and parent, but at what risk?
