25 Years Experience

Functional Medicine determines how and why illness occurs and restores health by addressing the root causes of disease for each individual.

"The Functional Medicine model is an individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach that empowers patients and practitioners to work together to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal wellness. It requires a detailed understanding of each patient’s genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors and leverages that data to direct personalized treatment plans that lead to improved patient outcomes"

Cleveland, Ohio ADHD Treatment
From The Desk Of Dr. Daniel Duffy, Jr. and Dr. Deborah Johnson

Over the past 25+ years we've had the privilege of helping thousands of kids all across Northeast Ohio with their ADHD symptoms. 

The KEY is to DIG for the root cause! In our clinic we have a saying... "We Don't Guess...We TEST!"

We look at FOODS! We look at NUTRIENTS! We look at TOXICITIES! We don't have a one size fits all cookie cutter approach. 

This is what separates us from other clinics out there. Most will simply throw a medication at the symptoms. We come at things from a NATURAL approach! 

What Is ADHD?
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) are brain disorders usually diagnosed by a pediatrician or psychologist . It is characterized by inability to concentrate, restlessness, and impulsiveness. It may FIRST be reported by teachers or parents. 

There is no single cause of ADHD. However, current scientific research suggests the effects of many underlying causes. 

Causes such as food sensitivities / gut dysfunction, nutrient deficiencies, heavy metal toxicity, low protein / high carb diets, mineral imbalances etc. 

These Are The Most Common Symptoms Of ADHD
  • Hyperactivity
  • Lack of Concentration
  • Impulsivity 
  • Easily Distracted
  • Unorganized
  • Inattentive
  • Forgetfulness 
  • Fidgety 
  • Makes Careless Mistakes
  • Talks A Lot
How We Are Different?
As mentioned above, we're going to dig to find the root cause. Each patient is unique and we need to explore to find the root cause. 

We may look at food sensitivities / intolerances to reduce inflammation. 

We may check for vitamin / nutrient deficiencies. 
For over 25 years we've been helping kids with ADHD / behavioral type challenges! FOOD TESTING is one key component. When you find and fix the root cause, the results are remarkable! By removing sensitivities / intolerances we're able to give the DIGESTIVE SYSTEM a break. There is a STRONG correlation between gut health and ADHD. 

By testing we're also able to give the IMMUNE SYSTEM a break...ultimately we're testing the immune system. And perhaps THE most important aspect of food testing is we're able to reduce INFLAMMATION and more specifically inflammation in the BRAIN! 

You Have Questions...We Have Answers!
Q: What Can I Expect On The First Visit?
A: During your initial visit with Dr. Duffy or Dr. Johnson there will be a detailed history taken along with a consultation. From there they'll determine if you're a case he can accept or not. Sometimes a referral is needed to another healthcare practitioner. From there they will recommend an exam & potentially further testing. If they feel they can help you, they will tell you. If they don't feel as though they can help you they will find an appropriate provider who can. 
Q: Does Insurance Pay For Treatment?
A: We will definitely check your benefits to determine if they can help. Generally speaking, most insurance does not pay for functional medicine type services. They will pay for your drugs and medications but won't pay to dig, find, & fix the root cause of the problem. 
Q: Will I Have To Keep Coming Back?
A: Dr. Duffy or Dr. Johnson will determine that early on in your case. They may put you on a protocol consisting of supplementation / dietary changes which may not need a lot of follow up visits.
Q: Will I Have To Swallow A Lot Of Pills?
A: There may be a few products to take but it won't be overwhelming / confusing.
Q: Is Your Program Safe?
A: Absolutely. Our programs are safe and natural.
