Harness Your ADHD Power
About This Show
ADHD is one of the most researched yet least understood conditions of our time. Harness Your ADHD Power host, Dr B, is here to explore relevant information that just isn't making it from the experts to the general public, and to close that gap. Those diagnoses missed in earlier years and made in adulthood, add many burdens to the discovery. Failed marriages, bankruptcy, unemployment, academic failure, underachieving, low self-esteem, missed opportunities, and a deep mistrust of self, are just the tip of the iceberg.
And prescribing ADHD medications without directing that person to experts to teach them the important skills and strategies they need to succeed is out of integrity in my worldview. "There are no skills in pills", to quote Dr. Michael Yapko, and every adult with ADHD is entitled to a full understanding of their amazing brain and neurology and the best ways to care for it. You'll hear guests that have expertise in relevant fields in addition to Dr B's expertise and point of view.
It is my hope that by discovering the best paths to personal empowerment and success, we can break the chains that bind the potential of so many, and all work together for a world in which no one is left behind; a better world for all.
