Available Services

We offer the following services:

Chiropractic Adjustments (for children and their parents)

Chiropractic is a safe, gentle and effective means of restoring the nervous system to optimal function.  Only Chiropractors are specially trained to check your spine for subluxations, which can begin at birth and progress throughout life.  When the spine is out of alignment, healthy cell metabolism, organ function and sharp mental focus are all jeopardized due to decreased nerve flow.  Correcting subluxations greatly improves the body's ability to heal itself.
 
Customized supplements, nutrition and dietary guidance. 

Following a thorough review of lab results, an individualized nutrition plan including supplements and diet will be developed to facilitate correction of physiology and subsequent functional improvement.

Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric Therapy has been shown to improve the function of children with autism and brain injury.  Our Hyperbaric chamber boasts a roomy 33” inflated diameter and 93" length that can easily accommodate even the tallest patients. It can also comfortably seat two people like a parent and a child.  Log onto www.WestValleyValleyHyperbaric.com to lean more about this remarkable treatment.

Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) and Methylcobalamine (B12)

LDN boosts the immune system, activating the body's own natural defenses.  Restoration of the body's normal production of endorphins is the major therapeutic action of LDN.  Dr.  McCandless has found very positive effects of LDN, in appropriately reduced dosage when applied as a transdermal cream, for children with autism.
 
Methyl-B12 is being used all over the United States and in many other countries.  It is estimated to be active and effective to some degree in 80-90% of ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) children.  The only way to know if your child is one of the majority of autistic children who will benefit from methyl-B12 is to use it. This is one of the important Defeat Autism Now! biomedical interventions along with dietary restriction, nutrients, attaining gut health, detoxification, and immune enhancing strategies that are improving and even recovering more and more autistic children every day now.
 
Valtrex


Valtrex is an anti-viral medication related to acyclovir and has shown efficacy against many but not all strains herpes viruses, including HSV1, HSV2, and VZV (chickenpox), EBV,  HHV6, and possibly CMV.  Some children with autism harbor chronic viral infections that should be treated as they can further disregulate these children's overstressed immune systems.

Retained Primitive Reflex Integration

Primitive Reflexes are instinctual, involuntary and automatic reflexes that develop in the womb, and are present at childbirth and during infancy. Normally, these reflexes, which are necessary for the survival and early development of the infant, become integrated into the brainstem, allowing for complex mental and physical development.

When not properly integrated during the child's first year, these reflexes can interfere with proper maturation. Reintegration or these reflexes can be done by a trained practitioner.

Refer to this checklist to find out if a consultation regarding Retained Primitive Reflex Integration is indicated.

We accept most major credit cards and insurance plans. 

However, biomedical intervention for autism is not customarily covered by insurance.
