Description

In this groundbreaking and controversial book, behavioral neurologist Dr. Richard Saul draws on five decades of experience treating thousands of patients labeled with Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder--one of the fastest growing and widely diagnosed conditions today--to argue that ADHD is actually a cluster of symptoms stemming from over 20 other conditions and disorders.

According to recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated 6.4 million children between the ages of four and seventeen have been diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. While many skeptics believe that ADHD is a fabrication of drug companies and the medical establishment, the symptoms of attention-deficit and hyperactivity are all too real for millions of individuals who often cannot function without treatment. If ADHD does not exist, then what is causing these debilitating symptoms?

Over the course of half a century, physician Richard Saul has worked with thousands of patients demonstrating symptoms of ADHD. Based on his experience, he offers a shocking conclusion: ADHD is not a condition on its own, but rather a symptom complex caused by over twenty separate conditions--from poor eyesight and giftedness to bipolar disorder and depression--each requiring its own specific treatment. Drawing on in-depth scientific research and real-life stories from his numerous patients, ADHD Does not Exist synthesizes Dr. Saul's findings, and offers and clear advice for everyone seeking answers.

Description
"Few mental disorders have been met with more controversy in recent years than Attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder. An estimated 4.7% of adults, and up to 16% of children are living with ADHD in the US. However, some allege that doctors are handing out prescriptions indiscriminately. Thousands of patients respond poorly to stimulant medication, which is at times prescribed to individuals without the condition. There have been countless reports of students and professionals abusing Adderall or Ritalin to enhance their performance in the classroom and at work. Meanwhile, pharmaceutical companies have found a goldmine. Yet the symptoms of attention-deficit and hyperactivity are all-too-real for many individuals who are frequently unable to function without treatment. The controversy surrounding the medication has left these patients and their families at a frustrating standstill, with no alternative options available to them. In ADHD Does Not Exist Dr. Richard Saul offers a groundbreaking solution. After thousands of clinical trials, he has determined that ADHD is not an entity on its own, but in fact a cluster of symptoms stemming from 12 other conditions, each of which requires a separate treatment. The comprehensive list ranges from harmless conditions (poor eyesight and giftedness) to more severe illnesses (bipolar disorder). Dr. Saul takes the reader through clinical examples in which he alters peoples' lives by diagnosing the underlying cause of their attention-deficit symptoms. ADHD Does Not Exist will serve as a handbook for doctors, practitioners, educators, and individuals who are seeking an honest approach to treating ADHD. The book will also be of cultural importance, as it aims to deconstruct one of the most elusive medical conditions of our time"--,Provided by publisher.
