No More ADHD
Dr. Mary Ann Block
No More ADHD. She questions the very existence of the ADHD diagnosis with compelling and fact-based arguments. Dr. Block takes the reader on a shocking journey behind the scenes of the mental health profession to expose the origin of the ADHD label and explains how children's attention and behavior symptoms can be the result of real and explainable health and learning problems.
Dr. Block is an international expert and healthcare leader on the treatment of attention and behavior problems without drugs. Her book provides a natural and practical approach to children's health and debunks theories that ADHD is a "chemical imbalance in the brain" or a "mental disorder." She exposes the dangers of psychiatric drugs frequently prescribed for this condition and summarizes the most common causes of attention and behavior symptoms.
While others are debating the pros and cons of the psychiatric drugging of children, Dr. Block has spent her medical career working in the trenches, helping to get children off these drugs and keep them off. A mother who knows all too well how the health system can fail a child, Dr. Block was compelled to go to medical school at the age of 39 to save her daughter after she was made seriously ill by inappropriate drugs used for a wrong diagnosis. Today she brings to her patients the understanding and knowledge of a physician and the sensitivity and respect of a parent. What Dr. Block learned as a mother and a physician is in this book and may help bring hope and comfort to other parents. To order this book.
