Childhood Developmental Disorders
It is estimated that 26% of children have some type of learning disability. This is an alarming number. The sharp increase that has been seen over the years can be explained by the concept of epigenetics. In short, the term “epigenetics” refers to changes that occur in a population that change the genetic expression of individuals. The causes of epigenetic changes are environmental factors. Moreover, epigenetic changes seem to increase in intensity with each generation.
Are there treatments available for Autism, ADD, ADHD? Medications? Behavioral therapy? The answer is YES, there are treatments available, but the treatments are not limited to pharmaceutical drugs or behavior modification.
In general, our treatments for all types of learning disabilities are based solely in functional neurology, functional biochemistry, and functional nutrition, hence, our overall FUNCTIONAL HEALTHCARE APPROACH. Treatments are tailored specifically to engage weakened neurological pathways in either the right or left hemisphere of the brain, to reduce systemic inflammation, and to create a better chemical environment for brain development and function.
The issue America faces now is finding physicians who are trained to diagnose the weakness and to pull together a tailored protocol to make permanent changes in the brain. The good news is that you have found a physician who is trained to work with these children. At our office, we work with a number of childhood developmental disorders. In 12 weeks, we can make significant and permanent changes in your child.
In a time where special education services are being cut, parents feel the pinch. A typical family will spend over $10,000 a year on special food and clothing items, various therapies, sitters or caregivers, and lost work. Many families must resort to one income due to one parent having to give up work in order to provide the extra care necessary for their child.
Questions to consider:
1. Is the problem getting better or worse?
2. What are some of the things your child’s special needs prevent you from enjoying right now?
3. What does your situation and your child’s situation look like 5 years from now, 15 years from now, and even 30 years from now?
4. As an adult, will your child be able to live on his/her own? Hold a job? Live assistance free?
5. If help is available, are you ready for it?
By the time many parents find our office, they have spent literally tens of thousands of dollars on behavior and pharmaceutical treatments that have not worked! They are frustrated, exhausted, and desperate. If you or someone you know has a child with any kind of developmental disorder, please contact our office to speak directly with the doctor!
