Approach: Biomedical & Integrative
Please note that Dr. Debby Hamilton has closed her practice.
A biomedical approach is commonly used for children on the autism spectrum and is an integral part of Dr. Debby’s practice. The term biomedical means understanding the biological causes of symptoms that a child is experiencing. Chronic illness in children can be complex and involve many different systems in the body such as the digestive system and the immune system. This is true for children on the autism spectrum.
An integrative approach uses a wide variety of treatments from various medical traditions. Dr. Debby’s treatments include diet recommendations, nutritional supplements, herbs, homeopathics, essential oils, as well as traditional prescription medicines as needed. She has found a biomedical and integrative approach to be the best way to help children with a multitude of chronic illnesses.
|The modern practice of medicine can easily become impersonal. We have all experienced the doctor appointment that started with waiting 45-minutes only to spend 7-minutes with the doctor. Dr. Debby, as she prefers to be addressed, is an exception to this experience. Although a Board Certified Pediatrician, Dr. Debby has pursued additional knowledge about nutrition, holistic alternatives and preventive medicine in overseeing the health of your children. When you are waiting for follow-up information, Dr. Debby is the person that calls you at home -- imagine that!|
