At BNH we can

  1. Test for nutritional deficiencies
  2. Provide proper nutritional supplementation
  3. Test for and treat food allergies and sensitivities
  4. Help you learn to cook healthier foods for the whole family

Targeted Amino Acid Therapy

TAAT is the use of supplemental amino acids to help balance brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) and other aspects of the physiology. For this type of treatment to be most effective, it should include a specialized neurotransmitter urinalysis test which provides a reliable means of measuring excretory values for neurotransmitters. From those findings an individualized protocol of amino acid supplementation is devised to improve the quantity and ratios of neurotransmitters in the brain.

Homeopathy

Homeopathy is a system of medicine which involves treating the individual with highly diluted substances, given mainly in tablet form, with the aim of triggering the body’s natural system of healing. Based on specific symptoms, the practitioner will match the most appropriate medicine to each patient.

NAET

Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique, or NAET, is an all natural, drug-free treatment for eliminating allergies, food intolerances, and chemical sensitivities, and resolving allergy related conditions. It is completely painless, and non-invasive. NAET may treat and correct the food, environmental and chemical sensitivities that add to the severity of ADHD.  NAET also helps “reprogram the brain” to help connect neurological pathways.
