HYPERACTIVITY & LEARNING DISORDERS
Childhood neurological/learning/psychological disorders have gone from rare occurrences to epidemic proportion in a little more than one generation. Why are these disorders so prevalent? Medical historian Harris Coulter, PhD and a growing number of scientists, medical doctors and parents claim this increase is largely due to childhood vaccinations that are neurotoxic (poisonous to the brain). In addition to vaccination, head trauma, birth trauma, severe burns, infection diseases, accidents and falls have been linked to neurological damage.
Psychiatric drugs such as Ritalin are given to children to treat their symptoms. However, according to Peter R. Breggin, MD, these drugs are dangerous. Ritalin can cause drug-induced behavioral disorders, psychosis, mania, drug abuse, permanent neurological tics, growth retardation, addiction, and many other side effects. The drugs given to hyperactive children can frequently cause the very same problems they are supposed to treat: inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity.
For decades clinicians and parents have reported on the effectiveness of chiropractic care for children with many kinds of neurological conditions including learning disorders, hyperactivity, dyslexia, inability to concentrate and behavior problems.
Chiropractic, by releasing stress on the brain, spinal cord and related nerves and structures, can benefit all children and adults, especially those suffering from neurological disorders. While seriously afflicted individuals certainly benefit from chiropractic care, so-called “normal” or “average” children benefit as well. Students are better able to realize their full potential. All children should visit a chiropractor for a check-up; all children deserve the benefits of chiropractic care.
