Think BIG – A Brain Building Program: Nutrition and Functional Medicine

Feeding the brain and body the right nutrients is critical for the health and development of the brain. Digestive issues, food sensitivities, and adrenal problems often affect people with neurodevelopment disorders. With proper support, these issues can be managed effectively.

Functional medicine focuses on prevention and underlying causes of imbalance rather than a single treatment for a single diagnosis. We use history, symptoms, and lab results to develop a highly individualized, comprehensive health plan including dietary guidelines and nutritional supplementation as needed.

There is significant research showing that children with certain neurodevelopmental disorders such as ADD/ADHD, autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and adults with chronic illnesses such as: sinusitis, thyroid disease, Celiac disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and autoimmune disorders, suffer from chronic inflammation of the gut, a suppressed immune system, and toxicity. Proper nutritional support, also known as biomedical care, looks at how a person’s health may actually be a result of an underlying physical breakdown of the body. Thorough analysis and testing can help identify where this breakdown is and how nutritionally the patient’s body needs to be supported. Patients are evaluated on an individual basis depending on their health history and needs.

We focus on diet, detoxification, and supplementation on an individual basis. Often testing is required to identify food sensitivities, nutritional deficiencies, and various digestive and metabolic conditions.
