Dealing With Poor Concentration
OK. Stay with me for just a couple of minutes. I, too, used to have the attention
span of a gnat hyped up on fast-cut soda commercials. No, actuallyâ€¦ oh never mind,
let me get on with what I want to say. See what I mean?
I was fortunate that when I was growing up, ADD was a math operation meaning addition,
not an excuse to fry my brains with Ritalin. In fact, not until 5 years ago did
it occur to me that â€œAttention Deficit Disorderâ€ and â€œAttention Hyperactivity Deficit
Disorderâ€ might be referring to me. I thought of myself as a bright guy who didnâ€™t
have time to just sit there and talk all the time. I got things done, and I was
good at it. Mind you, nobody else could figure out what I was doing, but that was
And now Iâ€™m an â€œadult,â€ and still nobody else can figure out what Iâ€™m doing!
One thing I was sure of back then, as I am now, was that I was not going to take
some drug, such as Ritalin, that was being pushed by multinational drug syndicates.
I was reading the studies and nobody, but nobody, knew what these poisons (cleverly
disguised as expensive drugs) were actually doing to your brain in the long run.

Are you still with me? OK. Good. These symptoms are often mistaken for a stressful
life. However, they can have significant impacts on relationships, careers and personal
safety. Other adults who do not suffer from these symptoms usually donâ€™t understand
Scientific Research Has Shown That Ritalin Is More Addictive Than Cocaine When Snorted
Ritalin is widely prescribed for children who have difficulty concentrating. I know
that you, as a parent, donâ€™t want to put your child on this drug, but, for some
children struggling in our school systems, there seems to be no alternative!
I am too old for Ritalin, but I imagine a generation from now Ritalin will be seen
as an absolutely barbaric way to fry our kidâ€™s brains!
Have you heard that they want adults to take Ritalin-like drugs now?
Not satisfied with the huge profits from Ritalin for so many of todayâ€™s kids, the
drug industry has realized that if they can get doctors to diagnose adults as having
ADD, the profits will rise exponentially! Greed, greed, greed!
Doctors will tell you: â€œAll your life youâ€™ve had difficulty concentrating, and now
we know that Ritalin will cure you!â€
Donâ€™t let it happen to you or someone you love!
They donâ€™t care that no one really knows how Ritalin works in the long run or what
it does when frying the brain. We donâ€™t know what the side effects can be, such
as stunting growth and reducing intelligence. Drug companies really canâ€™t measure
what is going on in the brain. They donâ€™t know what psychoactive substances actually
do to the quality of life, because they canâ€™t measure it. But for you, of course,
quality of life is of the utmost importance if you want to fulfill your peak potential.
Pharmaceutical companies are vigorously trying to deny that the brain is permanently
altered from this scary drug.
Who wants to risk brain damage?
A friend of mine, who had connections to the mob, likes to put it this way. â€œIf
you donâ€™t understand something, follow the money.â€ So, letâ€™s back up and look at
the big picture.
On average 18 cents of every dollar you spend goes to health care. That works out
to 1.5 trillion dollars in the United States alone! Thatâ€™s a stack of one dollar
bills that reaches two thirds of the way to the moon.
Can we agree that this is a LOT of money? So where does it go? Well some of it goes
to pay the nurses and doctors, some goes to pay the clinic or hospital, but one
half trillion goes to pay the very large multinational drug companies.
So, if you wanted to earn half-a-trillion dollars, would you not make very, very
sure that your product is used early and often? Would you spare no expense to get
your product name in front of as many doctors as possible to make sure that you
got your cut of the 3 billion prescriptions that are filled every year. And why
stop there? Why not advertise to the end customer directly?
Have you seen all the ads for drugs lately? This is exactly what is happening. The
drug companies make the biggest profit by giving you just enough relief so you feel
like the drugs are doing something. But then you have to keep going back again and
again. And again.
Drug companies know that if they actually heal you, they have lost a customer! â€¦And
all the mega-profit that goes with it.
This Will Stop You Cold In Your Tracks
OK. Make sure youâ€™re sitting down, now. Because Iâ€™m going to ask you a really chilling
question. Itâ€™s a little bit of a complicated question. So be prepared to let it
Here we go. â€œJust because a multinational company can make BIG profits by being
awarded a government patent for 21 years, does that mean the drug is the best thing
Wait a minute, you say. Isnâ€™t it the job of the government to make sure drugs are
safe and effective? Well, yes and no. I could spend a lot of time here explaining
the very serious shortcomings of the drug regulatory system. The news media has
tried to report the rampant problems with the FDA. But strangely, the information
is quickly hushed up. But let me cut to the chase. It all comes down to that sick
joke about â€œTrust us, weâ€™re from the government, and weâ€™re here to help.â€ If you
dig down into whatâ€™s really happening, itâ€™s a case of the fox guarding the hen house.
If you want to understand something, follow the money. Just because somebody is
making money from your pain doesnâ€™t mean they care even one bit about your happiness.
Thereâ€™s Another Way!
A nutrient called L-Theanine works wonders at keeping me in one place, focusing
on one thing at one time! Thank goodness. Now I can sit and concentrate as long
as I need to. Where was this amazing discovery when I was studying in school?
Why havenâ€™t I heard of L-Theanine before, you may well ask?
For now, L-Theanine is still a secret, because nutritional companies donâ€™t have
the money to outright BRIBE doctors to prescribe it to you or your kids. So, you
need to come to a web site such as this to even find out about it. Well, lets get
the word out!
Alright, we are almost done here. Take a breath, and letâ€™s look at some facts about
- L-Theanine is an amino acid. In animal tests, it is shown to be totally nontoxic,
with no side effects.
- L-Theanine works in about 30 minutes. How do I know? Trust me, I know because Iâ€™m
still sitting and typing away at this same document.
- L-Theanine is actually considered an instance of fifth taste in Japan, along with
Sweet, Sour, Salty and Bitter. Now I ask you, would we be designed to be able to
taste it unless it is really, really important?
- L-Theanine is why green tea is better for concentration than coffee. The L-Theanine
mellows out the coffee buzz. Try taking some L-Theanine with your coffee the next
time. Youâ€™ll see what I mean.
- L-Theanine raises levels of a feel-good brain chemical called GABA. Usually, as
we get older, the level of GABA decreases. L-Theanine raises GABA to more youthful
- L-Theanine also seems to raise the feel-good brain chemical levels of serotonin
and Dopamine. This means you feel calm and alert!
- I used to wake up in the middle of the night from nightmares in a panic. No more!
- L-Theanine is Buddha in a bottle! (Blissful but highly attentive!)
- L-Theanine has anti-cancer and antioxidant properties.
- Thereâ€™s more! L-Theanine also boosts the immune system and lowers blood pressure
and feelings of stress.
So, where can you get some L-Theanine for yourself or someone you know? Most health
food stores have it. Or try any of the major vitamin websites.How much do you take?
Experiment for yourself. 100 to 300 mg. as needed seems to work really well for
up to 8 hours.
