Article- ADHD in the Clinic

Clinic Reveals Safe Alternative Treatment Methods for Children and Adults with Attention Deficit Disorder.

Unfortunately, the medical world, and people in general, often underestimate attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) medication risks. Nor do they do not consider a multifaceted natural approach as the solution. "The long-term impact of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) medication on young developing brains is not yet fully known," explains Dr. Ruben St. Laurent of ProNeuro Health Brain and Wellness Center (FKA MindMenders Clinic). Some researchers are concerned about the use of drugs, such as Ritalin, Focalin, and Adderall, in children and teenagers because these medications might interfere with normal brain development and cause unwanted side effects. For instance, many ADHD medications contain stimulants that have been found to cause significant side effects and even sudden death in children and adults with heart conditions.

However, there are effective alternatives to using medication for individuals suffering with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Attention deficit disorder (ADD) is believed by some to be, in part, a central auditory processing disorder, resulting from a defect in the brain stem’s reticular activating system. The reticular activating system is the area of the brain that is responsible for regulating information from the auditory and vestibular systems, which selectively focus on certain types of sensory inputs, while inhibiting others. Although central auditory processing issues are often present in attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) patients, auditory processing dysfunction has received little serious attention from the medical world; fortunately, natural brain-based techniques that address these problems and restore brain function have emerged. One results producing program is the cognitive skills training administered by ProNeuro Health, which utilizes a multifaceted brain-based therapy including individualized cognitive intellect activities, functional neurology, integrated physical activities, a bone conduction listening program, and more. 

The ProNeuro Program helps activate the brain, identify and improve brain weakness in even the most gifted individuals, and heighten the brain’s ability to process all types of information. The power of the multifaceted program is the combination of cognitive training, vestibular exercises, brain chemistry balancing with neurotransmitters, and the listening program, which strengthens unused or weak areas of the brain while using music-based auditory stimulation.

One program outcome is designed to improve the auditory skills necessary to optimize learning potential, improve communication skills, and enhance musical abilities by addressing auditory processing problems, sound sensitivities, and learning and attention deficits. "Parents have approached me with tears in their eyes because they never dreamed these results were possible for their children." In fact, Stafford adds, "With children who rarely spoke and ADHD kids with inattention and anti-social behavior, parents say the children now experience school success and finally sit down long enough hold a conversation, which never happened before training.” The cognitive program, including The Listening Program, administered by ProNeuro Health Brain and Wellness Center does indeed produce results and offers an underestimated natural solution for attention deficit hyperactivity (ADHD) clients of all ages.

Testimonials

  • "I was having headaches everyday due to concussions. My moods were unpredictable and I always felt like I was in a fog. I would have migraines at least once a week. I just didn't feel right and no one was able to tell me what was wrong. The neurologists I went to see would simply say I needed time to rest my brain after a concussion. They didn't tell me what part of my brain was affected or offer any form of treatment. I was frustrated and looking for anything to make me feel better. I went to Dr. Ruben as a last hope. Little did I know he was exactly what I needed. Dr. Ruben took his time to find out exactly what was wrong with me, bringing me not only piece of mind but also a solution. Today, I am feeling more like myself again. I haven't had a migraine in over two months and I can't remember the last time I had a headache. It was the first time in a long time that I felt like a doctor really cared. Thank you Dr. Ruben for giving me my life back!"

  • "I have been to other chiropractors, but none have provided the care or knowledge I received from Dr. St. Laurent. He was able to find the root causes to improve my brain chemistry. His understanding of neurology and adjusting techniques had me back on my feet in a few days with less visits."
