Attention deficit disorder (ADD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) can be signs of an underlying imbalance. Recent advances in research are helping us understand brains with ADHD, leading to the development of new treatment options that offer the promise of a brighter future for you or your child.
ADD/ADHD spectrum disorders are often thought of as strictly brain-related. Treatments for these disorders are often focused on reducing symptoms. However, there is a strong link to what is happening in the brain to what is happening in the gut. Our functional medicine approach focuses on identifying the root causes behind brain-related issues.
There is hope for happiness. It takes courage and commitment as well as powerful knowledge, support, and tools from an expert. Dr. Autoimmune and his team incorporate functional medicine, functional neurology, functional nutrition, brain mapping, neurofeedback and customized chiropractic care to help people with brain-based disorders.
Our featured service for ADHD/ADD is neurofeedback. Neurofeedback training works on the root of the problem, altering the brain patterns that may be worsening attention issues. This program can restore healthy brain wave patterns and bring lasting brain changes. It is non-invasive and does not have negative side effects, making it a very powerful tool in the battle against ADHD.
Those with ADHD usually notice improvement after only a few sessions, but for the brain to fully learn how to make healthier patterns consistently, a number of brain training sessions are required. We usually recommend 20-40. With practice, the brain learns to make these healthy patterns on its own and regulate mood independently. Neurofeedback can help ADHD sufferers get their lives back and gain control.
Did you know we have a second brain? The second one, called our enteric nervous system, consists of some 100 million neurons that are in the walls of our gut. There are incredibly intricate interconnections between the brain and the gut and the vagus nerve (the nerve responsible for a lot of your thinking and brain function) connected from the top of your stomach, all the way up to your brain.
When your gut is unhappy, stressed, inflamed…your brain is unhappy or stressed. Inflammation in your gut sends signals to your brain, causing similar responses such as inflammation, stress, anxiety, depression and a host of other mental health issues.
By restoring healthy gut function, we can make a huge impact on mental function. This gut-brain connection may be the key to restoring your mental health!
Using adjustments, blood analysis, supplements, suggested diet and exercise, Dr. Hollaman has been able to recreate the proper function of my endocrine system and I feel like a new person! I’ve lost weight and feel good about myself again. I know that my health is better than it has been for many years and I am no longer taking thyroid supplementation.
Dr Ian helped me overcome many health problems. When I initially went to see him, I was suffering from hypo-thyroidism. With his help, I am no longer hypo-thyroid. Amazing Results! He is highly recommended!
Ian really knows A LOT about thyroid problems! His knowledge and confidence convinced me to make the lifestyle changes -including no gluten, no sugar, and more exercise-that are essential to healing hormonal imbalances and to staying well. Several months later, I feel stronger, more energetic, and am happier than I have felt in a long time. Many thanks for all your help!
I initially started seeing Dr Ian for intense tiredness, digestive problems, low thyroid and a slew of other symptoms. He has been so amazing in supporting me to continuously make improvements and the results have been incredible. I highly recommend him, he is intuitive, wise and a high integrity person that I respect and value!
