Portrait Health Centers for the Healing Arts opens in Buffalo Grove, IL
Portrait Health Centers for the Healing Arts, a multi-specialty clinic where families and adults can come to experience the most cutting-edge and proven treatment options available for those struggling with ADHD and other behavioral and learning disorders, announced today the grand opening of their first clinic located in Buffalo Grove, IL.
Dr. Jack Maggiore, Healthcare Director of Portrait Health explains, “Offering hope to families who struggle with ADHD and other behavioral and learning disorders is simply not adequate. We must provide a comprehensive assessment to uncover any of the conditions that mimic the symptoms of ADHD, as well as offer proven, effective, safe and affordable treatments.”
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurobiological disorder that interferes with an individual's ability to regulate activity level and behavior, and sustain focus on tasks in a developmentally appropriate way. Typically, a child with ADHD struggles to stay focused on a task, is easily distracted and is excessively “on the go” in a manner that prevents him or her from performing well at school or in other settings.
Preliminary investigations into the alternative treatments for ADHD, have revealed that there are a number of effective therapies which go far beyond the familiar stimulant drugs that have become the frontline treatment. These alternative treatments have been scientifically proven to not only improve the symptoms of ADHD, but address the underlying causes for the disorder. Such treatments include: (1) Nutritional counseling with dietary restrictions to gluten-containing foods and supplementation with nutraceuticals to address dietary deficiencies; (2) Chiropractic treatments involving the realignment of the cervical vertebra where subluxation is evident; (3) Regimental software based game playing to provide neurostimulation and home-based learning supplementation; and (4) Optical and Auditory corrections with advanced technologies.
“Parents should not have to “play doctor” by researching available treatments and then self-selecting which of these treatments has been scientifically validated and would be most appropriate for their child”, explained Henry Warner, President of Portrait Health, Inc. “The Portrait Health Centers for the Healing Arts provide a convenient source for all of the proven technologies and therapies for ADHD, as well as to provide access to the investigational promising therapies for ADHD, Dyslexia, Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, and other behavioral and learning disabilities.”
In the Portrait Health Centers model, the patient is assessed comprehensively by a team of healthcare professionals who hold specialty licensing in clinical psychology, optometry, audiology, nutrition, family practice medicine and chiropractic care. Any and all identified deficiencies or limitations are addressed through a thorough medical history review and evaluation by the professional team, coordinated by Portrait Health’s Nurse Navigator, who serves as the liaison, educator and advocate. The Portrait Health Centers will also provide continuity of services to school districts through individualized education programs (IEP), working with the appointed school-based team of specialists who strive to obtain and maintain the mainstreaming of the child.
