Natural Support for Autism
The rate of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders is increasing every year. Parents often feel overwhelmed by the many challenges faced by their children as they adjust to life in neurotypical society and by the challenging behaviors they themselves experience at home.
Naturopathic medicine can make an excellent addition to standard medical and behavioral health care for children with autism.
Through diet, homeopathy, and other interventions, individuals on the spectrum can experience tremendous improvements in their quality of life, their behavior, and their overall physical and emotional health.
ADD and ADHD
Attention deficits and hyperactivity can range from simple "fidgety kids" to kids who are struggling with severe behavioral and cognitive challenges. Kids with ADD and ADHD are at higher risk for failure in the school system and may even be at an increased risk for developing problematic behavior into adulthood.
Changes in diet, botanical support, homeopathic treatment, and other natural interventions can help children who have ADD and ADHD experience more stability and focus in their daily lives, and help them get the most out of their educations.
Natural medicine has so much to offer children and adults with Down syndrome! Holistic care can make huge improvements in cognition and behavior, improve mood, resolve sleep issues, reduce your child’s risk of developing Alzheimer’s later in life, and increase you child’s overall lifespan. In addition, healthy kids are happier kids - and that means happier families.
In addition to working with children who have a simple diagnosis of Down syndrome, Dr Silver works with children with dual or complex diagnoses, such as Down syndrome and autism, or Down syndrome and ADHD. These children and their families deserve the best care and treatment they can get - for mind, body, and soul!
