Every person who knows a child taking medication or struggling with school now has a place to find answers. Many people treat ADD and ADHD as a behavioral problem. In fact, ADD/ADHD is a neurological problem affecting mainly the cerebellum, thalamus and frontal lobe of the brain. Medications are only a temporary solution because they do not address the root cause-an electrical imbalance between the right and left sides of the brain. This lack of balance is called a "Functional Disconnection Syndro
The causes of the disconnection that is labeled ADD or ADHD are extraordinarily complex
- Toxic chemicals
- Heavy metals
- Gluten, casein, soy
- Food sensitivities
- Immune system
These are ALL factors and must be investigated if your child is ever going to communicate, be social or have control over their behavior.
Too many doctors don't understand that each child is unique. One-size-fits-all, cookie-cutter protocols don't do your child justice-and are doomed to fail.
Dr. Husmillo understand the complexity and uniqueness of each child. That's why their treatment philosophy is "Treat the child, not their diagnosis."
Dyslexia & Learning
Sadly, there is still a stigma about being a "slow reader" or being put in "a special class." No parent wants their child to be forced to carry around one of these labels. To give your child a fighting chance to read and learn normally, you need understand two things…
First, dyslexia is not just switching letters. And it's not simply a phonics problem. If it was, then phonics would work for every child-but it doesn't.
Second, difficulties with math, reading and spelling are commonly caused by dysfunction in specific areas in the left hemisphere of the brain.
Visual processing, sound processing, memory and processing speed are all compromised when the left hemisphere of the brain is not functioning properly.
