In his fourth and concluding lecture of the IMMH Conference in San Antonio, 2014, Dr. Cady reviews the statistics, epidemiology, biological nature and pharmacologic treatment of ADHD. The first part of the presentation was absolutely conventional allopathic psychiatry, inclusive of brain imaging.
The second part of the presentation considered: "If we are thinking about biological, psychological, and behavioral interventions for a 'psychiatric' patient, shouldn't we be considering the TWO biological levels?" The most normal biological level that "biologically trained psychiatrists" consider is medications and medication effectiveness. However, sometimes even the most vigorous, precise, and heroic efforts do not work. The potential confound it the underlying physiological, hormonal, nutrient, antioxidant, PUFA-rich state associated with optimal health and well being.
In the final analysis, shouldn't we make sure that we have BOTH of these biological foundations right?
We hope that you enjoy this provocative slide presentation.
