Autism, ADD/ADHD, PANS/PANDAS, Sensory Integration, and Learning & Behavioral Issues
Our pediatric team has extensive combined expertise in integrative, biomedical and functional medicine, and have had success in treating children with disorders that affect the brain, mood, behavior, and learning.
We assess nutrition, gut microbiome, lifestyle factors, stress, relationships, genetics, and underlying allergies, infections, and/or toxicity to help your child heal and balance his or her body and brain biochemistry. We are able to use pharmaceuticals if needed, but most often are successful with non-pharmaceutical treatments. These treatments are targeted at both helping the child and family feel and function better relatively quickly. In doing so, we also address underlying root causes in order to achieve optimal health, happiness, mood, relationships, and learning.
We offer a monthly group for anyone interested in natural treatments for ADHD, Autism, PANS/PANDAS and Sensory Integration Disorder (those interested in other conditions are welcome as well). Whether you’ve been at this for a while or are new to or curious about functional medicine, this is a great opportunity to learn about nutritionally-based, functional medicine approaches that could help your child have optimal health and wellness.
Autoimmune Conditions, Gastrointestinal Issues, Genetic Disorders, Seizures, Nutritional Support for Cancer, and More
In the 21st century, there is no better approach to treating chronic illness than functional medicine. This approach is aimed at understanding and treating underlying health issues that contribute to illness and disease by using a personalized, lifestyle-based medicine approach.
Our practitioners, in partnership with our patients and their families, are often successful in improving health outcomes beyond what is expected for various chronic diseases, many times with less or no medication. We promote lifestyle changes, meditation, stress reduction, and other energy medicine techniques to reduce or eliminate symptoms, often fully reversing chronic conditions in ways not previously thought possible. We also believe that food is a form of medicine and should be utilized in the healing process.
Mental Health Concerns
Whether your child is struggling with depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, bipolar, schizophrenia, or any other mood or behavioral disorders, we are here to help heal the brain and body. The health of your brain and nervous system is closely tied to the health of your gut, immune system, and underlying genetics – all of which can be supported if needed. We can help change your child’s (and family’s) lifestyle, heal his/her gut, and balance his/her brain and body biochemistry so that your child can feel better and be better in all aspects of his/her life.
