New Facts Reveal a Lot of Kids Do Not Have ADHD Who are Treated for it

Hardly a day goes by that Natural Biology is not contacted by a concerned grandparent or parent because their kids have been diagnosed with ADHD - and there are some common vitamin protocols that are recommended by a growing number of physicians.  It is not an area of expertise we subscribe to be experts at.   Nonetheless, we are aware that many naturalist believe inherently that parents are over-medicating their children and are allowing "jump to conclusion" about ADHD often - too early.  It is a difficult situation for parents to make the right choices.  

Close to 1 million children in the United States have potentially been misdiagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) -- simply because they are the youngest, and therefore the most immature, in their kindergarten class.

These children are significantly more likely to be prescribed behavior-modifying drugs such as Ritalin.  Such inappropriate treatment is particularly troubling because of the unknown impacts of long-term stimulant use on children's health.

According to Science Daily:

“It also wastes an estimated $320 million-$500 million a year on unnecessary medication -- some $80 million-$90 million of it paid by Medicaid”.
