(The Real Agenda) The rates of psychiatric illness in children has doubled over the last five years. There has been a three-fold in ADHD, a twenty-fold increase in autism and a forty-fold increase in bipolar disorder.
There is no such a thing as cheap food. The price is always paid by someone else, and more often than not, it is paid by those who believe that cheap food is an option. Few people stop and think how much their health is worth, and most people only understand how valuable health is once they’ve lost it.
Study after study has shown that the western diet, composed of eating habits that include mostly cheap food, does not play any role in supporting good health. However, the same studies prove that a diet rich in organic, nutritionally charged foods is directly responsible for good health, disease prevention and even in the treatment of physical and mental health illnesses.
The ingestion and absorption of food rich in micro-nutrients has a dramatic role in promoting and maintaining good health. Dr. Julia Rucklidge is a clinical psychologist who has dedicated over a decade of her life to the study of how micro-nutrients benefit health and help prevent mental disease.
What she and other experts have found is that when taken in significant amounts, vitamins and minerals not only treat mental disorders and in most cases are capable of curing conditions such as ADHD, autism, bipolar disorder, anxiety, stress and PTSD.
The results of her research grew out of her desire to find out why poor children suffered from significant psychiatric illness despite receiving conventional treatments for their conditions. What Ms. Rucklidge discovered is that conventional treatment only shows good results in the short term, but not in the long term.
People treated with dangerous pharmaceutical drugs only saw temporary improvement, while people treated through dietary supplements with high levels of raw micro-nutrients not only showed improvement in the short term, but also in the long term. Many of the subjects who participated in the studies even saw their mental disease disappear.
In the following presentation, Dr. Rucklidge explains how study after study continues to reinforce the idea that conventional medicine fails in the treatment of disease, especially mental disorders, while patients treated with micro-nutrients continue to get better.
