Some people claim that ADHD is a made-up disease, while others recognize it as a label that resonates with many. I think I understand where this statement comes from. ADHD has a complex and diverse underlying foundation.

There is substantial scientific evidence that exposure to pesticides at a young age has a significant impact, as well as additives in our food such as artificial colors, flavors, and sugars (known as E-numbers). Just observe how children become hyperactive after consuming sugary foods and similar additives. Additionally, various stimuli can influence hyperarousal, such as television, phones, and gaming. The current school system, where children spend most of their day sitting and focusing on screens, contributes to this issue and, in my opinion, needs innovative changes. Moreover, we live in a society where we are continually overburdened. The lost connection with nature is also an important factor; being in nature can have a calming effect. Furthermore, as a society, we lack physical activity and are exposed to frequencies that we may not be consciously aware of.

However, what I primarily see and also experience is that trauma underlies ADHD, as many labels are expressions of underlying trauma. The restlessness and hyperarousal experienced by individuals with ADHD, which makes it difficult for them to focus and be present in the moment, are precisely the surging trauma energy.

Temporary medication may be helpful as a coping mechanism, but it does not address the root cause or provide a long-term solution unless we learn to transform the underlying energy. If we merely learn to manage ADHD without addressing the underlying issues, we stay on the surface level. Although it may be useful to receive practical tools to navigate life, transformation and regulation of the underlying energy are essential and possibly necessary.

Obesitas and diabetes are real conditions, but what underlies them? In my opinion, ADHD belongs to the same category. Much of it is related to lifestyle, underlying emotions and disconnection from essence. Even if you have genes that make you susceptible to ADHD, it doesn’t mean that genes are the sole cause. We have an impact on our genetic expression, and our brain is plastic and capable of regeneration.

It seems like for every form of coping with the fast-paced, unnatural lifestyle and (consciously) activated traumas of today, we have created a label, preventing us from getting to the core issue and discovering our true selves. We remain stuck at the level of activated programs and believe that is who we are.

Imagine you have experienced several traumas, making it difficult to sleep. You consume a lot of sugars to suppress emotions and expose yourself to screens frequently. You struggle with self-regulation. In this scenario, there’s a high chance that you score high on the ADHD label or another label. Ultimately, you may become depressed or despondent, and the doctor prescribes antidepressants or other medications that you find difficult to discontinue. This way, you don’t address the underlying cause and become part of the profit model for big pharma, with all its consequences.

It’s essential to recognize the significance of lifestyle and emotional aspects in various conditions, including ADHD, and work towards understanding and addressing the root causes rather than simply relying on labels and medications.,vid:IR8XwmUkJb4

In the video above, there is Selma Eikelboom, a forensic doctor, with an important message.

What would happen if we teach children at a young age to meditate and regulate and understand emotions in school?

Also, explain how the brain works, what different nutrients do, and the influence of insufficient sleep. And let them experience all of this through experiments. Then I think the diagnosis of ADHD would decrease rapidly. Especially if we stop exposing them to pesticides and additives.

If we take a group of adult ADHD individuals out of their current environment and teach them to meditate and transform hyper-arousal energy. Then regulate and understand emotions. Provide them with a healthy diet, exercise, and spend lots of time in nature, without mobile phones or screens. After a few weeks, in my opinion, most of the ADHD symptoms would no longer be prominent. “Yes, but my brain just works differently.” That’s correct, a traumatized brain works differently too. But that doesn’t mean there’s nothing that can be done. A traumatized person is more prone to activating the reptilian brain and has certain neurological pathways deeply ingrained. They may also have different brainwaves, but we do have influence on both by neutralizing underlying energy. Neuroplasticity shows that we can influence and change our brain.

A label is not something we have to accept or suppress. Of course, you can identify with it or hide behind it, but you truly have a choice. It is the gateway to the solution!
