Dr Azzolino has helped me overcome various health issues. I had a very severe injury, which left me with terrible vertigo and balance problems. I am told I’ve made a miraculous recovery, and I have no doubt that Dr Azzolino played a huge role in this.

I have to write a review for anyone that might need a pediatric or adult neurologist down the line because I am so incredibly impressed by our visit with Dr. Azzolino in SF, at Azzolino Chiropractic neurology and Integrative Wellness. My son has developmental delays and some muscle weaknesses that have been attributed to neurological abnormalities. We had been to a traditional neurologist at Stanford, only to be told the only option was an MRI.

Seeing this office online, I thought I’d give them a try before doing the MRI next summer. I am soo incredibly impressed at how pro-active Dr. Azzolino is. He gets the whole picture, not just the symptoms. And provided things I can do already to improve my son’s condition, from ipad apps, to spinning, to specific exercises, to testing all from a more functional medicine standpoint.

Mind you we are already doing physical therapy and speech therapy, but I was so impressed with the comprehensiveness of this neurologist compared to the traditional western medicine one. After leaving Stanford, I just kept thinking, there has to be something more I can do to improve my son’s condition, from nutrition to exercises, etc. And boy was I right. Visiting Dr. Azzolino was exactly what I was looking for. A doctor that would look at his symptoms from a medical, nutritional, and functional standpoint.

ADHD

ADHD

About half the population will decrease blood flow to their frontal lobes when they go to concentrate – it obviously conferred an increased survival benefit at some point in our evolution.

You can imagine a hyperfocused hunter-gatherer would bring home more food than a hunter without what today we call ADD/ADHD.

The brain can be retrained to have a pattern that is less “ADD” ish and there are supplements and other modalities that can assist, but many have environmental triggers to their lack of focus that has nothing to do with inheriting something from an ancestor 10 thousand years ago.

Some children are actually sufferring from an old traumtic brain injury that was never recognized. Coming thru the birth canal is dangerous to a baby’s brain and just because someone doesn’t have cerebral palsy doesn’t mean one made it thru the birth canal without injury.

For some children with ADD/ADHD they are having problems because they actually have a great body burden of some very toxic elements such as lead or mercury. In this situation detoxification is the first order of business, just like removing foods that are upsetting a child’s immune system would be the first order of business if certain foods are identified for increasing symptoms.

Another group of ADD/ADHD children are the victims of a very subtle post vaccine encephalitic syndrome. The point is not all ADD/ADHD are the same, you don’t treat them all as a homogeneous group, and what benefits someone who has hyper-focused ADD might not benefit someone with ADD caused by an unrecognized brain trauma.
