For many years, I have been speaking against drugging our children with Ritalin, Addreal and other medications. When I speak, I speak from experience; my own son Michael, at the age of 10 was diagnosed with ADHD and was prescribed Addreal. Inside, every time I had to give him this medication my gut and intuition began to scream, “What are the side effects”, What if it’s addicting”. During this time, my son stopped eating and stopped sleeping, yes it help with his behavior in school but was not helping with his schoolwork.
During this time, I began to look at myself; I remembered my school days, the Special Ed classes along with all the questions that ran through my mind “What is wrong with me?” “Why cant I learn like the other kids?” and so on. These are the same questions I know our children are asking themselves. So, I stopped drugging Michael and began to speak with Michael. I myself was extremely sensitive with no one to talk to because I felt and new that no one understood.
Many of the authors who have written about the Indigo Children are not Indigo's themselves. They state that the children do not like to be told what to do, do not want to stand in line and so on. What we need to realize is that these children are highly sensitive, not only to energy but also to words.Each thought, word, emotion carries a vibration and these children can feel it, If an Indigo Child has conflict throughout the day, he or she will relive the event for a period of 3 days with questions of “why did I not say this” or “why didn’t I do that”, it can go on and on.
Lets also mention the fact that the medication is addictive. While on line, I had joined many groups and would help those of Indigo energy anyway I could. There was one woman who opened a group and was advising the parents to get their children on the medication. I stated “What if this medication is addictive” she did not want to hear anything. One Sunday, while doing intuitive readings at an expo, I had a mother come in with her 20 year old son. As I looked at the son, I felt indigo energy, so I asked if he new of the Indigo’s, and he did. Many of the children know about the Indigo Energy. Then he stated that he was on medication for ADD. He said this with a sad and discussed look on his face, the then stated “I hate the medication but I have to take it or I feel withdrawal symptoms. Well, the answer was given in that second and I have been advocating ever since.
It seems as if a cartel has been created between the school system, the doctors, pharmacy and government. It has become a never-ending cycle for many parents. When Michael was diagnosed I was working for an attorneys office and asked for help. I found out that the government pays the school system money for each child who is labeled. The Pharmaceutical companies pay the government and the doctors make money each month.
A while back, I received this article from an old friend and would like to share it with everyone.
Department of Health Statement
Treating children who have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) with drugs is not effective in the long-term, research has shown.
A study obtained by the BBC's Panorama says drugs such as Ritalin and Concerta work no better than therapy after three years of treatment.
The findings by an influential US study also suggested long-term use of the drugs could stunt children's growth.
It said that the benefits of drugs had previously been exaggerated.
The Multimodal Treatment Study of Children with ADHD has been monitoring the treatment of 600 children across the US since the 1990s.
Most of the estimated 500,000 children in Britain with ADHD receive no treatment at all.
The Department of Health has issued a statement on the treatment of ADHD
But of those that do, most - about 55,000 last years - are prescribed stimulants like Ritalin and Concerta.
The cost of these drugs to the NHS is about £28m.
In 1999, the American study concluded that after one-year medication worked better than behavioral therapy for ADHD.
This finding influenced medical practice on both sides of the Atlantic, and prescription rates in the UK have since tripled.
But now after longer-term analysis, the report's co-author, Professor William Pelham of the University of Buffalo, said: "I think that we exaggerated the beneficial impact of medication in the first study.
"We had thought that children medicated longer would have better outcomes. That didn't happen to be the case.
"There's no indication that medication's better than nothing in the long run."
Prof Pelham said there were "no beneficial effects" of medication and the impact was seemingly negative instead.
"The children had a substantial decrease in their rate of growth so they weren't growing as much as other kids both in terms of their height and in terms of their weight," he said.
The Panorama program features disturbing footage of a 14-year-old from Stoke-on-Trent, who has been on ADHD medication for a decade.
Craig Buxton's family kept a video diary of his behavior and captured on camera examples of just how explosive his behavior can be.
He has self-harmed, suffers night terrors and is aggressive - he recently assaulted three school teachers.
His mother Sharon said things had gone from bad to worse.
And all I can do is go back to the doctors and say: 'Is there anything more you can do?'

"He has broke down and cried when he gets into situations," she said.
"He says: 'Why am I like this mum, I don't want to feel like this, I don't want to be like this, you know, help me'.
"And all I can do is go back to the doctors and say: 'Is there anything more you can do?'
"All they say is, well, we are doing what we can."
The National Institute for Clinical Excellence is currently revising the treatment guidelines for ADHD.
Chair of the working group Dr Tim Kendall said they were devising a strategy, which was likely to involve training for parents as well as "behavioral interventions".
"The important thing is that we have an approach which doesn't focus just on one type of treatment," Dr Kendall said.
Drugs are not the answer, these children are not disabled, and they come on to the planet with a much higher vibration and learn through their senses, by doing, seeing, hearing, feeling. We as a human race are evolving, why because of the planet we live in is evolving. Those of us who are born with Indigo Energy begin to change who we truly are inside, why, if we don’t conform to the rest of society or what is written in the school curriculum we are automatically labeled with Learning Disability.
As a mother on a child who was labeled with ADHD I began talking with my son. I realized that if I have conflict or drama thru out the day, I relieve the scenario, our minds can go on and on, thought after thought, which creates problems when we read, this can go on for 3 days. I go to sleep with it, I wake up with it on my mind and I ask myself, why didn’t I do this or why didn’t I say that.But this is the way of our life. Even with out conflict, we constantly think, constant thoughts come in all day long. With this knowledge, I would have Michael come into my room around 7:00 and ask how his day was. And he would have an outlet, speaking out what happened gave him the ability to release it from his mind and heart. They are so sensitive and creative, they need to know that they can trust what they say will not be repeated. This is really important to them/us. Not to be betrayed.
With my son, there was trust, respect, communication and most of all, Unconditional Love. Today, he is 21. He is not an angry child/young adult, he is not on the streets, he does not do drugs, he does not talk back and he still tells me he loves me.
Another thing I did is I brought crystals and put them around the house. Not for him but for me. I could feel the energy and vibration and it felt good. A few days went by and he asked, “What did you to in the house”, I stated “Nothing, why?” He stated “IT FEELS SO GOOD IN HERE, I DON’T WANT TO GO OUTSIDE” I began to think and put the 2 together. The heightened vibration in the house gave not only me but also him a sense of peace and calm feeling.
Today, I speak about the Indigo Children. I help the children and I help parents. I help people of all ages and they are all Indigo’s. The Indigo’s began coming to the planet since 1945. It is a good possibility that you, the parent is an Indigo Adult.
I will write other articles of who the Indigo child/Adult are and why we are here, the traits and the symptoms of the awakening that is taking place.
I hope this helped. I have opened a community for the Indigo Adults and Children and welcome you to join. I also have two web sites: www.lisabellini.net and www.voicesaroundtheworld.net The voices web site is about educating and bringing people together around the nation with a goal of opening schools for the children without drugging the children.
Love and Light
