Two of the major symptoms of ADD and ADHD are inattention and inability to concentrate.
If you remember from the previous post, difficulty concentrating is a symptom of EMF Sensitivity.
One of the individuals I treated put it this way:
I am there but out in space. Like being on some drug that slows the brain down…rather odd experience.
For me? When I am exposed to a problematic EM frequency, say, the EMs from fluorescent lighting ballasts? I feel as if molasses has been poured on my brain. Even the simplest tasks become nearly impossible. Someone has to repeat the same question several times before I am able to answer. It’s as if I’m in a daze, lost.
(yes, this limits the time I can spend in a store)
It would be a terrible shame if children were unnecessarily medicated because of a misunderstanding of what was causing the symptoms.
There was a sharp increase in the number of ADD and ADHD cases at the same time that our environment, including schools, libraries, and hospitals, became inundated with technology.
Between 1.5 and 3% of the population is EMF Sensitive. Between 3 and 5% of American children are affected by ADHD. The numbers are highly suggestive. It’s more than possible that at least some of these kids are EMF sensitive, not ADD or ADHD.
While gaining my degree in holistic childcare I had a class that focused entirely on ADD. I am fully aware of the extensive diagnostic testing that should be done when making an accurate diagnosis. However, I am also aware of two things
- Many people who claim to be qualified to make such a diagnosis are not
- Many of the environments in which children are tested contain computers, printers, cell phones, and flourescent lighting ballasts, all of which can result in the same symptoms as ADD and ADHD.
I believe that further studies are warranted …
(the treatments I have are safe for children)
