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.
|Our daughter, now 5, has been seeing Dr. Debby since she was 14 months old. We can't say enough wonderful things about Dr. Debby, she has been a true blessing to us. Our daughter had severe eczema and was on a very limited diet. After our first appointment with Dr. Debby, we felt very comfortable and felt hopeful for our daughter's health. Our daughter has improved dramatically, and her diet now includes many more foods than before. |
