Don’t Drug Them First – Children, ADHD & Drugs – Dr. Rapp

Why is the first choice when children have attention problems, behaviour problems, and/or other symptoms or issues for biopsychiatry to be only too-happy to jump in quickly and not only diagnose children with an increasing and alarming amount of diagnositic labels such as ADD, ADHD, and so on, but also why are they so quick to give them drugs, drugs that are much more dangerous than most people realize? Dr. Doris Rapp, M.D. believes that many of what biopsychiatry views as mental health disorders are difficulties that result from environmental sensitivity or allergies.


Doris J. Rapp, M.D. founder of the Health Research Foundation is committed to educating both the public and health professionals about the distressing physical and behavioral changes that frequently disrupt the lives and well-being of children and adults. “The more we know, the more we can protect ourselves and our loved ones by taking some often easy and inexpensive precautions. We simply have to make better choices.”

Dr. Rapp has dedicated her life to providing research, information and solutions for those affected by the typical and less frequently recognized forms of allergies. New suggestions will help entire families and those who seek to treat them more quickly and effectively. Today, through the Health Research Foundation, she hopes to conduct breakthrough studies into the underlying causes of hyperactivity, allergies, autism, and memory loss . “We also want to make doctor visits and vitamins available to low income and underserved populations who suffer from so many symptoms, but cannot afford what will help them. We also hope to disseminate fast easy helpful ways so many can cope more effectively.

Dr. Rapp is adamant that the best choice of therapy for inappropriate behavior and activity in children is not another “off-label” drug that has not been proven safe for children. There are better practical, simple, fast and inexpensive choices to many of the challenging physical, emotional, behavioral and memory problems that are much to prevalent at the present time. A change in diet, an air purifier and getting rid of chemicals in the home can turn around in a few days or a week or two the lives of many.

It is through the Health Research Foundation that Dr. Doris Rapp hopes to continue inspiring everyone’s awareness about the relation of the environment and our health and well being.

She has a three-fold mission:

  • To inform the public and educate medical doctors about health issues, i.e. environmental health issues.
  • Conduct research to find better, faster, easier, less expensive and safer ways to help children and their families.
  • To help underprivileged children obtain the specific healthcare they need.
