Everybody has an opinion about ADHD. Very few people have the facts. And it is exhausting, frustrating, and upsetting to spend time and energy arguing with people who have no idea what they are talking about, but still keep talking and talking. We’ll see why arguing simply makes people more entrenched in their beliefs. Often these are well-meaning people who are simply repeating the same nonsense they’ve heard over the years:

PDF: What It’s Like to Have ADHD
Dr. Hallowell shares his experiences in this document designed to shed light into what it genuinely feels like to have ADHD. Although some people say the so-called syndrome doesn’t even exist, Dr. Hallowell knows it does.
PDF: Biomedical testing increases accuracy, efficiency and outcome measures on multiple levels, but because many in managed care don’t see how testing will remarkably improve their bottom line, they repeatedly focus on labels that encourage the denial of biological reality. Too often they simply don’t support inquiries for new markers to correct mental imbalances. The result, they are short-sighted, misinformed and miss the underlying income/economics they could save/earn if they began to insist on data reality vs speculations. Inaccuracy costs more in dollars and suffering over time. Downoad this PDF with over 25 links to interviews conducted by Dr. Parker and thought leaders around the globe who discuss Biologic Reality.
