CAMARILLO, Calif., Oct. 14, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Camarillo Holistic and Chiropractic Center in Camarillo, CA promotes pediatric care for children with ADD, children with autism and children with allergies. According to Camarillo chiropractor Dr. James Aylor, DC, chiropractic care and nutritional counseling are an effective alternative treatment for children diagnosed with ADD, autism or acute allergies. Dr. Aylor, DC, says that these treatments help manage symptoms by addressing underlying misalignments and nutritional imbalances that may be contributing to health problems.
Camarillo chiropractor Dr. James Aylor, DC, is recommending holistic pediatric care for children with ADD, autism and allergies. According to Dr. Aylor, DC, undiagnosed spinal misalignments and an unhealthy diet may be contributing to these conditions.
"While holistic medicine cannot 'cure' autism or ADD, all-natural treatments are an effective alternative to traditional medications," said Dr. Aylor, DC. "Many parents are understandably nervous about heavily medicating their children."
ADD, also known as Attention Deficit Disorder, is characterized by inattention, impulsive behavior and difficulty concentrating. While doctors do not fully understand the underlying causes for ADD, an overactive nervous system that is unable to properly filter information may contribute to this condition.
"Traditional medical treatment for ADD relies on Ritalin, a stimulant that is used to mask the symptoms of ADD," said Dr. Aylor, DC. "However, parents often do not want prolonged exposure to Ritalin if there are alternatives. Dietary changes and chiropractic care are two effective alternatives that alleviate symptoms without exposing a child's young, developing body to a constant onslaught of artificial chemicals."
Hands-on chiropractic adjustments are gentle for children. These adjustments may remove the subluxations that are irritating the nervous system and affecting the brain's activity. Dietary changes that reduce a child's exposure to toxins and artificial ingredients may also help manage ADD.
"All-natural treatments like adjustments and nutritional counseling can make a tremendous difference for a child's overall health," said Dr. Aylor, DC. "For children with autism, allergies and ADD, addressing the underlying causes for these problems is always preferable to simply masking the symptoms with medication."
Dr. Aylor, DC, has completed numerous courses at Alabama's Clayton School of Natural Healing. Thanks to his studies, Dr. Aylor, DC, understands that a healthy diet not only provides essential nutrients and calories, but also prevents children from consuming "trigger foods" that can aggravate health problems. For example, eliminating whole milk, eggs and wheat, along with foods made from additives and artificial ingredients, can improve a child's health while reducing food allergies.
The addition of fatty acids, vitamins and minerals are vital for maintaining healthy brain function. Dr. Aylor, DC, will create a customized treatment plan for each pediatric patient that addresses his or her individual nutritional needs. The chiropractor may also make lifestyle suggestions that help calm, rather than excite, the brain.
The Camarillo chiropractor additionally treats pediatric and adult patients in Somis, Oxnard and Newbury Park.
