Philosophy

At the D'Adamo Institute, we recognize that there is no single route to good health. Just as no two persons' fingerprints are the same, no two bodies are alike, no irises, two fingers, or ear prints are alike. This means that since the first person appeared on this earth and millenniums later after that person’s death, no one will ever have the same finger prints.

We at the D’Adamo Institute understand the unique characteristics of each person's body ascertaining the particular strengths and needs, and use this knowledge to determine the necessary therapies and treatments for each individual to achieve and maintain optimal health. Our naturopathic medicine approach means that we treat people, not diseases. Illnesses are created by an imbalance in the body and are never isolated to a single part or system. We consider the functions of the body and mind together and know that a positive, hopeful state of mind enhances every facet of physical healing.

We do not heal. The body heals itself given the right nutrition. Our role is to stimulate the body's natural recuperative abilities and to show our patients how to remove obstacles to achieve full healing process. Patients ultimately maintain control of their own health.

The Institute brings an innovative approach to naturopathic healing based on Dr. James L. D’Adamo’s 50 years of scientific research, during which he defined the relationship between a person’s blood type and their unique nutritional needs and general lifestyle requirements. Using this groundbreaking discovery, the naturopaths at The D’Adamo Institute obtain a complete picture of a person’s health utilizing various diagnostic techniques, including:

  • Blood type analysis
  • iridology
  • pulse analysis
  • muscle assessment
  • stress assessment

After determining the individual’s specific needs, a detailed diet is recommended which includes a program of specially formulated vitamins and supplements as well as a regime of therapies, possibly including:

  • colon irrigation
  • foot baths
  • clay packs
  • massage
  • manipulations
  • Acupuncture

Testimonials

  • Recently I developed a severe sore throat with white pus on my tonsils. I couldn’t sleep, eat, drink, swallow, and could barely talk. My primary care physician thought it was strep and sent out labs the next day. The results were not due back until the weekend and I really didn’t want to take antibiotics if the strep were positive. I scoured the Internet for natural remedies. I tried drinking apple cider vinegar, cayenne pepper, and just gargling with hydrogen peroxide. All of it was nasty and provided very little help.

  • Just a note to say how much better I feel after just a month (80% on my program). You are a remarkable man and a very kind one. As it turns out, I may be about to sign a big contract that would take me to Washington – my visit to you came in the nick of time.

  • We want to express our appreciation for the good care we have received over the past year from you and your staff. WE also appreciate your dedicated interest in your patients’ welfare, which is hard to find these days.

  • I’ve gotten answers to my questions and come to understand why my body acts the way it does. A lot of my symptoms disappeared over a course of a few years and I feel healthier than ever – have more energy and clarity of thought.

  • I am sending you this little note to let you know that my leg is so improved, since I have been under your care. I am now able to walk up to three miles a day, and soon I will do even better, as you may know I love to walk great distances. Thanks to you and your healing knowledge of helping people in pain and discomfort, I and many others you have helped wish you a long and continued success in your science of healing.

  • I started having seizures in my 20’s …after years of being in and out of hospitals and on medications, a friend suggested I see a Naturopath (I had never heard the word before). I was a skeptic but after spending two hours with Dr. James D’Adamo during my first visit, he told me about my poor circulation and that I would be experiencing seizures – I hadn’t even told him about the seizures. He  designed a diet according to my blood type. I’ve been happy, energetic and have a whole new outlook on life. Now, 35 years later, I haven’t had a seizure or taken any medication. My husband and I are both patients.

  • I want you to know how grateful I am to you, since you have been treating me for my severe headaches. I feel like a new person. I know you will continue helping people in pain.

    Mary M. - Brooklyn, NY

  • Dr. D’Adamo has been a trusted advisor, always willing to give of his time about my health. Besides having someone to help me when my health is in trouble, I also have a guide to ensuring better general health and functioning. I am firmly committed to Dr. D’Adamo’s health program for me. I have found him to be an inspiration and a dear friend. I respect and admire greatly his abilities as a natural healer. I feel he has helped to save my life. I fell he is making a very strong contribution in the community to those like myself who want to follow an alternate kind of health care from that offered by conventional medicine.

  • The improvement has been dramatic, to say the least. I have never felt so good or looked so good in my entire life. At fifty I am far better than I was at twenty. As far as the gallstone is concerned, I have never felt even the smallest symptom since starting your treatment. I do not even know whether or not it is still there. My blood pressure is normal, and my ankles rarely if ever swell. My figure is beautifully slim, a ‘side effect’ achieved with no effort at all, eating substantial, healthful meals. Everyone comments on the clarity of my complexion, and I always have boundless energy. Indeed, ‘we are what we eat’.

  • “We want to express our appreciation for the good care we have received over the past year from you and your staff. We also appreciate your dedicated interest in your patient’s welfare, which is hard to find these days. As you know, when we came to you we were not suffering from any serious ailments. However, after only a few weeks under your care, Martha had a definite increase in energy and experienced far fewer headaches. In addition to this, we both feel a definite sense of well-being in the knowledge that we are on a program of good health that will reap benefits for years to come.”

    Martha F. - NY, NY

  • I was tired, congested, bloated…and the breakthrough has been incredible. I feel empowered. Dr. D’Adamo has cured me of some really challenging health concerns and I’m happy and grateful.  I have recommended Dr. D’Adamo to friends, and they have told me that it was the greatest gift I could have given them. I just wish we could clone him!

  • Your natural method of healing is most certainly the best care we can give to our bodies. The only way to heal is to treat the causes, not only symptoms. I have been under your care for one year and feel much better than previously under orthodox medicine’s health care. The people in this free country of ours should have the right to choose the health care they feel is best.

  • I wish that it be known that we discovered Dr. James L. D’Adamo at a time when we were desperately searching for a doctor who could save our lives. Our health was rapidly declining and failing. Now, since we are under the care of Dr. D’Adamo our health is gaining strength and constantly improving.

  • I’ve been a patient of Dr. James D’Adamo for approximately 40 years…taking his vitamins and minerals and have enjoyed good health in spite of suffering from mascular degeneration which Dr. D’Adamo took care.
