Depressing. In recent weeks, in the little bit of news I've witnessed, there has been a lot of mainstream media attention in America to doctors no longer accepting swag from drug companies (is there a new AMA rule or something?) and also a lot of focus on people, from comics to psychiatrists, debating whether things like Aspberger's syndrome or even nut allergies are being over- or mis- diagnosed.

If you're a tad bit eccentric now, they think you have Asperger's syndrome. Again, probably a real issue (you'd have to believe that autism is a sham in order to believe that a gradation of it--which is what they believe Asperger's to be--doesn't exist), but it seems like it would be very difficult, and possibly quite pointless, to diagnose a minor case of it.

I totally agree--it's my belief that many if not most of the world's greatest artists are or were to some degree at least autistic/AS cases. (Not to mention bipolar.) One thing I can say about the AS people I do know--they sure get things done! Sorry if I sound flippant, but sometimes I wish I had that kind of focus.

(I'm not a doctor, but I play one on the internet.)

Read up on Traditional Chinese Medicine: these "diseases", ADD/ADHD, Autism, Bipolarity, and Depression, all have the same root cause: Jing Deficiency.

wiki Jing (TCM)


And all of them can be addressed with diet, herbs, acupuncture, and lifestyle practices.

The drugs attack Jing and thus entrench the issue further; like putting out fire with gasoline...burning down the house. They attack Jing by unnaturally sucking it out from the stores in the body and pipelining it to the brain which makes one feel...more. It's this flatline of "more" that allows some to bootstrap their way back into normalcy...but many are just doing irrevocable damage to their genetic makeup which...if you haven't noticed... has created a population rife with autistics, Riltalin-jockies, and social inepts. You'll also come to see that it creates a nation of people sterile-without-assitance and more short-lived. Jing is that thing in the body that is like the honey jar of life; once its gone, you are too.
