Our understanding of neurogenerative disorders and neuroinflammation has greatly expanded in the last few years. We are seeing an increased diagnosis of ADD/ADHD and autism in pediatrics and alzheimers related dementia in adults (increased prevalence likely due to aging demographics). Emerging disease entities like neurologic lyme, bartonella, chronic inflammatory response syndrome from biotoxins, mycotoxins and our food supply can all potentiate neurologic symptoms. There have been numerous trials looking for a pharmaceutical approach to these diseases, even though we have already had methods to address these issues which are supported by evidenced based medicine.
Given that autism and lyme neuroinflammation are emerging fields with conflicting studies, there are a small few who have the answers to symptoms from these neurologic entities. As a result we are seeing a rapid expansion in alternative medicine approaches to these diseases, many with unproven results.
At Mid-Atlantic Health institute we use a comprehensive approach to several of these disease entities.
