By denying scientific principles, one may maintain any paradox.
Ever feel like you're walking in the ADHD woods, lost without a map? Do you search for ADHD Mind-Markers, but have no clue what to look for other than the remarkably outdated standard of care: Hyperactive, Inattentive and Combined?
The bad news: plan on remaining lost with the new/old primitive codes found in “new” DSM-5. The Real ADHD Appalachian Trail remains obscure in these DSM-5 mountains, and who knows where – or how – to find it in the fog of appearances.
The reason you're lost can be found – quite simply – in your own personal mind data. You've been taught to look for vague superficial behaviors with vague, confusing, imprecise, obscure markers – expected by many professionals to only become quantifiable through 5-800$ psych testing [often based on DSM 4], or 3500$ SPECT brain imaging, – while no other markers seem to matter. And managed care often won't pay.
This October I'll be providing serious, data-driven details about How Reality Changes ADHD Diagnosis and Treatment.
It took the FDA 6 full years to recently approve the simple Vyvanse Water Titration Recipe I encouraged soon after production in 2007… so expect that you may discover Approved ADHD, Brain Function Based Criteria for Diagnosis and Treatment to belatedly arrive near the end of your lifetime. Hang tough.
When there is no censorship the writer has no importance. So it’s not so simple to be against censorship.
Take just a moment to consider the Hemingway perspective on data and hysteria-journalists writing about ADHD from ignorance, chasing that front page of that authoritative medical journal: the Sunday NYT – from Brain Pickings. The ADHD Mystery is here: the extant confusion about ADHD diagnosis and treatment does exist – but the answers are not found in gossip.
True mysticism should not be confused with incompetence in writing which seeks to mystify where there is no mystery but is really only the necessity to fake to cover lack of knowledge or the inability to state clearly. Mysticism implies a mystery and there are many mysteries; but incompetence is not one of them; nor is overwritten journalism made literature by the injection of a false epic quality. Remember this too: all bad writers are in love with the epic.
And my further response, via Hemingway:
There are some things which cannot be learned quickly and time, which is all we have, must be paid heavily for their acquiring. They are the very simplest things and because it takes a man’s life to know them the little new that each man gets from life is very costly and the only heritage he has to leave. [Tweet this quote]
Evidence Creates Predictions
Scientists — the specialists in discovering what is true about the world and the universe — often work like detectives. They make a guess (called a hypothesis) about what might be true. They then say to themselves: if that were really true, we ought to see so-and-so. This is called a prediction. For example, if the world is really round, we can predict that a traveler, going on and on in the same direction, should eventually find himself back where he started. When a doctor says that you have measles he doesn’t take one look at you and see measles.
His first look gives him a hypothesis that you may have measles. Then he says to himself: if she really has measles, I ought to see… Then he runs through his list of predictions and tests them with his eyes (have you got spots?), his hands (is your forehead hot?), and his ears (does your chest wheeze in a measly way?). Only then does he make his decision and say, ‘I diagnose that the child has measles.’ Sometimes doctors need to do other tests like blood tests or X-rays, which help their eyes, hands and ears to make observations.
Dawkins On Tradition and Authority
Dawkins warns against “three bad reasons for believing anything” — “tradition,” “authority,” and “revelation.” With new brain and body technology, with years of practice beyond simple revelation, we can now leave the territory of dreams and imagination – and begin to walk the path through both living and metabolic reality. Let's practice working with Real data, beyond chatter, beyond “belief.”
Gossip and inaccuracy don't work, reality does.
ADHD, the outdated term, describes Real Brain and Biomedical Dysfunction, more appropriately termed Executive Function Challenge. Executive Function Challenges are measurable and real, not a belief system.
Excellent Factual ADHD Documentation Via Pete Quily, Coach and Citizen Journalist: ADHD Is Real
Some think Executive Function Challenges arise from a Belief System only because they fully understand that far too many aren't using brain science in everyday practice protocols. It looks like fiction if we don't follow the Trail of Reality, the Trail of Facts.
