Can Diet and Biomedical Approach Really Improve Behavior and Developmental Disorders?

I completely understand the skepticism.

Because I was a skeptic at one point. I had heard “rumors” of diet changes helping kids with SPD/ADHD/Autism/Developmental Delays/Behavioral Disorders but I didn’t truly believe it. I was trained as a conventional medicine Physician Assistant and nowhere in our training did it mention nutrition as it relates to Behavioral disorders or developmental delays in children. I completely wrote off the notion as “crazy” and not “evidence-based medicine”. That is, until I was a parent in the trenches.

Our Story.

It all started when…

our second child, Cade, was a little over two years old. I had just had our third child and our oldest child was five. We started noticing that Cade was having difficulties at home and he was not socializing very well at school. When we picked him up from school, they would tell us he had a “great day” but when we got home he would begin to tantrum every 3 minutes. At first, I thought we just weren’t disciplining him enough or that it was possibly the “terrible twos'“. Until I realized that anything would set him off into a tantrum.

What is Functional Medicine?

The short answer to the question is: It is the type of medicine where we look at the body as a whole while looking for the root cause of symptoms instead of creating a diagnosis that fits all of the random symptoms together under one umbrella. It is also the type of medicine that works to heal the body and rid it of these ailments instead of throwing prescriptions on symptoms (which often create new symptoms due to the endless adverse effect profiles of prescription medications).
