Hyperactive Disorders

Attention and Concentration 

     Recent studies indicate a 330% increase in psychotropic drug use in children under age twenty over the past 10 years (study was over a population base of 990,000 individuals).  This is staggering, both for what it represents to us personally as families and parents, but secondarily to our culture and society.

     There are many things that can be employed nutritionally to turbo charge the brain function and perhaps make drug intervention unnecessary.  Research finds everyday new applications of safe and known nutrients to assist the normal physiology of mentation and concentration.  These things work!  It is vital to try the lesser measures before beginning to medicate a young child in the developmental years, as it is so easy to interrupt the subtle mental, emotional and social evolution occurring.  Some people say that addictive patterns can be introduced in childhood pre-disposing individuals to addictions later in life.

     Currently school systems are experiencing a 400% increase in autism over the past 10 years, each individual requiring extensive support and special attention.  The cost of this is staggering and crippling.  It is well known that essential fatty acids are very influential in assisting the normal brain function.  Every impaired individual should be supported with basic foundational nutritional approaches to observe how optimized their function can become.

     Sugar and the high American glycemic diet have been implicated for years in ADD and hyperactive disorders.  Simple and appealing diet modifications directed by profound nutritional understanding may significantly enhance cognition and attention span.  Food allergies are also a culprit robbing the body of its vitality and over stimulating the adrenals creating a cascade of behavior disturbances.  When these chronic immune burdens are removed within three days improvement is obvious.  The most suspicious food allergies are cow milk products, corn, wheat, and soy.  By eliminating these things for two weeks and then reintroducing them one at a time it is demonstrated which one(s) are offending.

     Our children are not temperamental biological mechanism with inherent Ritalin stimulant deficiencies - they are profound miracles of biochemical individuality.  They must be given the opportunity to achieve the full genetic potential.  It is vital that we find more natural means of supporting childhood developmental challenges, and only medicate if all other alternatives prove inadequate.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I was very impressed with the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Anderson. I had received chiropractic in the past for my neck pain, but not to this level of care. After only a few sessions, my symptoms began to disappear, especially my neck pain, and I know I would not have been able to perform to my everyday work functions without the treatment I received."
    Neck Pain
  • "I have benefitted tremendously from the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Anderson. Not only has the adjustments helped alleviate my stiffness and aches, but it has helped me have more energy and just feel more balanced over all. A few months ago, I was able to resume a favorite hobby of mine: golf. Due to my previous pain, I never thought that’d be possible."
    Back Pain
  • "Dr. Anderson has allowed me to be headache free for quite some time now. I used to have daily nagging headaches that often would turn into a migraine leaving me unable to function. For the longest time, I thought I could just keep taking medication to have the pain subside."
  • "As a court reporter, using my hands to type on a daily basis is a requirement. The work is speedy and can often last for hours at a time. Several months ago, every movement I made became excruciatingly painful. I started seeing Dr. Anderson and he put together a program for me that helped right away. He stressed the importance of my posture and proper hand and arm placement."
    Carpal Tunnel
  • "It's been 7 months since I got wiped out by a monster wave. I sought treatment at the hospital and they took x-rays and said everything seemed normal, that I would just have some pain for a few days. A few days actually turned into several weeks, so at the suggestion of my girlfriend, I went to see Dr. Anderson."
