When it comes to ADD, ADHD, or Autism you have to take a step back and get a BIG PICTURE OF THE WHOLE PERSON. Ninety-nine percent of our patients have already been to 5, 6 – even 7 doctors. With little or no long-lasting results.
The very first thing you should know is – I do things differently. I don’t do things the same way as other doctors and other healthcare practitioners, even ones that you’ve seen.
The biggest striking difference is the treatment philosophy at the Naperville Institute For Neuro Metabolic Solutions:
Treat the Individual not their diagnosis.
To get great results, we have to be really good detectives. That means looking at areas that are often neglected or missed. If you have a child who was recently diagnosed by physician, a teacher or the next door neighbor, I want you to realize that a diagnosis is just a label. It’s just a word. It doesn’t tell you what to do about it.
People are misdiagnosed everyday with everything from strep throat to cancer.
If you came to me and said “my child can’t focus,” or “My child has ADHD”…that would be a place to start. But it doesn’t tell me what to do about it, because there are literally hundreds of different possible causes or mechanisms.
What we do is ask…
- What is the mechanism?
- Why is this happening?
To answer these questions we implement:
- Chiropractic Neurology aka Brain Based Therapy
- Functional Endocrinology
- Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis
- Functional Immunology
These cutting-edge sciences examine Hormonal Function, Immune function, Gastrointestinal Function, Metabolism and Neurology and how they are all interconnected. ADD and ADHD are neurobehavioral disorders caused from a disconnect in the frontal lobe.
ADD/ADHD has become so common almost everyone knows a family coping with this frustrating condition. Most of us only see the behavioral effects of ADD/ADHD…the lack of focus and organization, lagging social skills and the frustration that comes with it all. We invite you to more about the symptoms of ADD/ADHD.
Parents not only worry about how their child will make it through school, but will their condition affect the kids ability to hold down a good job, could ADD/ADHD even limit their ability to make a living and realize their full potential in life?
It’s not that these kids can’t focus, they can certainly pay attention to highly stimulating activities like video games and TV, but they can’t stay focused when the environmental stimulation is low. They start to daydream, fidget and disconnect from the situation. They often don’t even know they are doing it. And, certainly they don’t know how to stop it.
In his book, Dr. Melillo describes what happens to the brain and how the brain becomes imbalanced (AKA Functional Disconnect Syndrome). He also talks about how functional neurology (Brain-Based Therapy) along with nutrition has brought amazing results for thousands of kids throughout the country.
Our breakthrough treatment focuses on re-establishing communication in the brain. Your child will go through a 3-STEP PROCESS.
STEP 1 – A functional neurologic evaluation performed to determine if your child is a candidate for brain-based therapy and Metabolic care.
Learn more about the types of questions we ask to help determine ADHD.
We do not accept children younger than 7 years old. Parents and the child must be committed to the treatment protocol. We only accept up to four new children a month so we can focus our attention on their specific and unique needs.
STEP 2 – If accepted into care, your child will receive specific brain-based therapies like Interactive Metronome™, Eyelights Therapy™, Unilateral spinal adjustments, specific dietary/supplementation directions, and other treatment deemed necessary to maximize their progress.
STEP 3 – Your child will be continually evaluated for progress toward graduation from the program.
Why allow your child to continue suffering from the physical and emotional effects that come with ADD, ADHD and Autism.
