Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) are complex conditions that require individualized analysis and treatment.
Often people are labeled with this condition and put on a medication without a thorough analysis. There are several underlying causes and contributing factors as to why a child or an adult may lack focus or the ability to stay on task.
We evaluate a patient's thorough history and then look at multiple areas where the body may not be functioning at it's optimal level. Rather than just replacing a medication with a supplement we analyze where each individual patient may be lacking in gastrointestinal, immunologic and neurological health.
Research tells us that the health of our gastrointestinal system directly correlates with the health of our brain. Often times the foods we eat, the medications (including antibiotics) and the infections we've had early on in life can have a significant impact on our brain health. Even the nutritional health of the parents can affect how genes are expressed in the offspring.
