In a previous article, we told you about the newest mental health disorder, binge eating disorder, which was officially listed in the latest edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), or DSM-5.
And if you look at what this “condition” is, then chances are that almost everyone on this planet is suffering from it.
If you’ve lately been enjoying more food than normal ? like eating a whole tub of ice cream while watching a film ? or if you’ve been “uncomfortably full” several times a month, voila! Chances are you have “binge eating disorder” or BED.
Now, as far as mental health disorders go, you might think that Binge-Eating Disorder takes the cake… Literally… but I think there’s another one that might top it.
And if you ask me, just like binge eating disorder, this one is not a real mental health disorder. But what it almost certainly is, is a shining example of how far Big Pharma will go to get our children on the drug treadmill as early as possible.
The condition is called “oppositional defiant disorder” or ODD. Oppositional defiant disorder is a considered a “co-existing disorder” that children are being diagnosed with who also suffer (or are likely to develop) attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). ODD first became an “official” ailment in the early ’80s.
If you want a mental picture of its symptoms, well, just visualize any small child, especially one in the “terrible twos.”
A child with ODD is said to have “frequent outbursts,” a “tendency to argue” and “ignore requests,” and my favourite, “engage in intentionally annoying behaviour.”
So if you see (and hear) a toddler having a meltdown in the supermarket, well, that is a textbook case of ODD.
Now, the good news is that your child will outgrow this terrible condition by the time they turn eight (something most mums could have told all these “experts”).
But the bad news is that the treatment for ODD can involve one of the worst and most addictive drugs out there. One called Vyvanse.
That may have a familiar ring to you, because literally months after the DSM-5 ? the diagnostic “bible” used by the mental health industry across the globe ? was published, the American Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Elvanse for binge eating disorder. And Elvanse is a knock-off of the drug Vyvanse.
Vyvanse is an amphetamine that could become highly addictive after only a short time. Trying to get off the drug could cause some real side effects, such as personality changes, an increased heart rate, panic attacks and suicidal thoughts…
Vyvanse is a notorious and potentially deadly drug, which has been linked to suicides in adults and children, including children as young as seven. It reportedly can unleash a sort of psychological hell, with potential side effects ranging from depression to outright panic.
In other words, real mental (and physical) disorders.
So, if you hear the words BED, ODD, Vyvanse or Elvanse from your doctor, run for the hills, because not only has your doctor bought into two fake mental health conditions, but he or she has also fallen for Big Pharma’s heavy-handed drug-intensive style of medicine.
On a different note:
Recently, we asked you to participate in a survey to find out what your thoughts are on the future of the NHS after Brexit. The response we got from all our readers was extremely insightful and it is clear that the state of the NHS is a topic very close to everyone’s hearts.
As a result, myself and the Managing Editor of the Journal of Natural Health Solutions, Rachael Linkie, have decided to host a webinar towards the end of August during which we will discuss some of your concerns about the future of the NHS.
To submit your questions and comments for this webinar please contact us at email@example.com using the subject line ‘Brexit Webinar’
