Since my passing in 2004, I have stated quite categorically that IRELAND IS THE KEY THAT WILL UNLOCK EVERYTHING. Julius Caesar wrote more about the killings in Ireland than most scholars. This man wrote more about it than you find…Read more
Anna Hunt, Staff Writer Waking Times Doctors continue to diagnose increasing number of children with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). They most often turn to medication that stimulates the central nervous system (CNS) to treat ADHD symptoms. Yet, ADHD drugs can be quite detrimental to children’s health.

By practice, I’m a psychotherapist who has been working for over a decade in the world of mainstream medicine, a body of experience that has allowed me to develop a strong understanding of both its strengths and weaknesses.
But beyond my work, I’m also a mom who fiercely loves her children, and for their sake, when it comes to their health I’ve always explored all available options — an approach that I’m proud to say has led me to find better solutions than any conventional specialist had ever offered.
My work has allowed me to cross paths with a seemingly endless number of psychiatrists and general practitioners, who for the most part have one thing in common: They all see medication as the optimal form of treatment for the vast majority of what they diagnose. This includes attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety, sleep issues, depression, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
For a long time, I wondered about the cavalier prescribing of drugs but bit my tongue. Who was I to question physicians with the benefit of many more years of medical training? My viewpoint changed in 2006 after I had my children who suffered similar challenges.
I knew doctors would recommend medication. I also knew I didn’t want my children to go down that road for fear it would severely damage their lively, beautiful spirits.
As my husband, Steve, and I tried to make do with physical and behavioural therapies, I read many medical journal articles about the link between autism, mental health issues and malnutrition, toxicity, food sensitivities and intestinal permeability, immune, metabolic and digestive issues. These discoveries led us to realize that these disorders could be a real medical illness treatable with natural remedies that didn’t involve intrusive, personality-altering medication. While we were skeptical at first, the potential rewards were so high that these methods outside the mainstream seemed well worth trying. And, I am happy we did!

A landmark study helps explain why Big Pharma is so afraid of the medical benefits of cannabis. The pharmaceutical and alcohol industries, both powerful influences in Washington, have long lobbied against cannabis legalization in order to protect their profits.
The recent study is lending credibility to the idea that medical cannabis can be used as a natural alternative to prescription pain medications, with nearly 100 percent of respondents saying they believe cannabis is helping them decrease their use of prescription opioids to treat the pain.
The study, which was conducted by HelloMD, one of the largest medical cannabis communities in the nation, and University of California Berkley, surveyed nearly 3,000 patients who use both opioid and non-opioid based pain medication…
