ADHD meds linked to dangerous heart problems... in children!
If you have grandkids and take them to the park or playground, you've seen it.
It's the army of pint-sized zombies created by Big Pharma's ADHD meds -- kids so zonked out of their minds that you know something's off just by looking at them.
But these meds do more than turn a hyper kid into a drugged-up robot.
The weird behavior you can see is nothing next to the invisible damage on the inside... problems that could set the stage for serious health risks in the not-too-distant future.
And if the little ones in your family are taking these meds, it's time to fight to get them off -- because the latest research reveals a shocking side effect that no child should ever have to face.
These drugs can take a kid's strong and steady heartbeat and throw it so far out of whack it might never come back to normal.
The new study out of Australia finds that kids who take ADHD meds face a higher risk of arrhythmia -- especially in the first couple of months after taking the meds, and especially in kids who are on other meds or who may be at risk of heart problems already.
This isn't just a simple skip of the heart.
This is a dangerous and often permanent disease -- one these kids will be forced to battle for the rest of their lives.
So what do the researchers recommend?
You're not going to believe this one, my friend.
With a risk like that, kids shouldn't even be in the same room as these meds... yet the team behind the new study isn't urging parents to avoid the drugs.
Instead, they're telling parents to just watch their kids and check their blood pressure after taking the meds.
That's downright absurd. It's the kind of advice we might give seniors trying a new med... not healthy children who might have nothing more than a behavior problem.
These kids are too young to have to worry about heart risk -- and fortunately, they don't have to.
There are much better, far safer, and way more effective ways of dealing with ADHD.
In many cases, these problems are just simple immaturity. Children need a steady mix of time, patience, love, and the firm hand of discipline to help them grow out of it.
For other kids, the problem can have any number of causes, including nutritional deficiencies, hormonal problems, reactions to chemicals in processed foods, or low levels of essential fats such as omega-3s.
And some kids might have a combination of those problems.
Your best bet is to seek the help of a skilled holistic pediatrician who can test for and treat all the possible causes of ADHD without putting them on drugs that can lead to heart problems.
