This video gives just a quick overview of the cognitive anxiety section in my book: "New ADHD Medication Rules" Available here in paperback, eBook and Audio http://www.bit.ly/rulesbooks What looks like "OCD" may, in fact, arise from misunderstood ADHD!
*New ADHD Medication Rules* discusses the OCD/ADHD question in considerable detail. "New Rules" is a game changer because so many forget that 1. reality does change, and that 2. the body is, in fact, connected to the mind! Descriptive ADHD labels are outdated, functional assessments create more predictable outcomes. Basic metabolic, body-related imbalances often have far reaching effects that encourage *unpredictable outcomes* with medication management. And if that "OCD" is treated with antidepressants, but is really ADHD, you will miss the target and be worse off than when you started! OCD medicines make ADHD far worse, as they work on a completely different part of the brain, on a *completely different neurotransmitter system.* Serotonin doesn't treat dopamine imbalances, it makes them worse. In a hurry? See that point in this vid at min 4.30.
Just think about this point: How many with ADHD are treated with stimulant meds - without paying attention to the specific *cognitive* attention-related targets? The short answer: far too many. Get it right - start with the ADHD Medication Tutorial series linked below.
Thanks for watching, more vids are coming so do subscribe to this channel, and tell your friends - a real ADHD Medication science does exist out there, it's simply under- appreciated, and, regrettably, disdained by too many who are simply uninformed. If you are a professional and find these observations helpful do pop over to my professional training site http://www.corebrain.org for considerably more referenced details.
