At New Life Wellness Center, we support the approach that balancing brain function restores neurological health, allowing a child to perform at his or her full potential.  Our goal is to improve the function of the brain, which controls all aspects of health, in order to alleviate the symptoms of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) as well as other learning disorders and ultimately, to achieve maximum health.

In addition to effectively addressing the symptoms of ASD, our combined approach using chiropractic neurological therapies and BrainCore neurofeedback training has been shown to be a successful therapy protocol for children with ADHD.  These disorders are not always easy to diagnose and belong to a spectrum of neurological disorders with no known physiological basis. The spectrum includes: ADHD, PDD (Pervasive Developmental Disorder), OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder), Asperger’s Syndrome, Tourette’s Syndrome and Autism. ADHD is not a learning disability. However like other neurological disorders, it can affect the ability to progress in society and the ability to learn.

Fortunately, public preference for the non-pharmacological and holistic approach is growing. Society is well aware of the adverse side effects of medications and other chemicals used in conventional therapies. Medication controls symptoms without getting to the root of the problem. If the brain has reduced metabolic rates, the medication will increase them, but if you remove the medication, the problem will return.

Our proven, effective and non-drug therapies address the patient’s individual problems. The symptoms your child has associated with his/her spectrum or learning disorder do have a cause. The true cause of the symptoms leads us to the most effective therapy regime. Research shows that the link is the brain.
