Naturopathic medicine is based on a holistic approach combining safe and effective traditional therapies along with modern scientific approaches in medicine. One of the key differences between traditional (allopathic) medicine and naturopathic medicine is that naturopathy focuses on the individual rather than treating based on the generality of symptoms.   More about Naturopathy . . .

What is Neuro Development?

In the search for physical and mental wholeness, we have to consider the fundamentals and basic principles around which our body is built.  We call this a developmental approach.  The body and brain develop from the simple to the complex, from the head down, and in specific developmental order.  Any interruption in that developmental process causes any higher levels of function to be distorted.  In order to restore order to the whole body and mind, you have to begin with the lowest level of dysfunction in the body and straighten it out first before the subsequent levels can be properly organized.  We believe this to be a foundational truth and rely on the simplicity of this principle to guide us in the handling of the injured and hurting people that enter our clinic’s door.

Neuro Development assessments and therapies are the means whereby we evaluate and correct brain disorders, brain injuries and developmental delays by assessing motor, cognizant, academic, emotional and neuro-processing functions along with sensory integration abilities. Utilizing the principles of brain development and neuroplasticity an individual therapy program is then designed for the patient. The therapies will cause aberrant brain development to progress and will advance new neurological pathways around damaged areas of the brain.
"Dr. Andrew Dickens has been a lifesaver for my son! He demonstrates a patient, kind, generous spirit working with my son who recently developed what is being diagnosed by traditional medical psychiatrists as bipolar disorder w/ psychotic tendency… I am eternally grateful to Dr. Andrew for his treatment of my son-- his expertise, knowledge, and genuine dedication to facilitate my son's healing! "

Neuro Development assessments and therapies are excellent for developing the human potential in regards to sports abilities and academic achievement. It is a way to accelerate the brain’s learning processes and coordinate the brain with the body for superior motor function.
