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

  • My experience and my wife’s experience with Dr. D’Adamo was, to say the least, very fortunate. Before coming to study in the USA, I enjoyed a very robust health. I was a swimming champion in my country, and I do not remember ever being seriously ill. In brief, I was the healthy, sporty type. After a couple of years in the USA, I began to feel the ‘down slope.’ After two operations on my knee (due to a sport injury) my general health was in a very bad state – the worst I had ever experienced.Read more ...

  • I’ve been a patient for 35 years – so have my mother, husband, and children. My children were put on the D’Adamo Diet from birth and grew up without the many childhood illnesses. They have the knowledge of how best to nourish and avoid pitfalls of this “junk food” society….and will pass this along to their children…which is very important

  • Being on your program has made an enormous impact on my health and wellbeing. You’ve personally been a life saver recently with some acute issues.

  • Before seeing Dr. D’Adamo, my situation was growing from bad to hopeless. I could remain out of bed for no more than an hour or two a day, and that, in a state of fatigue and with great difficulty and discomfort. I had been to many MD’s, and among them a well-known specialist, none of whom could correctly diagnose my illness or help me.

  • I learned about Dr. James D’Adamo from a couple of his patients. They kept looking better and healthier every time I saw them. I've been a patient for the last 35 years.  I felt that this was the type of treatment I was looking for and over the years, Dr. D’Adamo was always proven correct.  I enjoy the feeling of well-being the most and the treatment which gives me the instant feeling of wellness. By following Dr. James D’Adamo’s blood type diet, my health has improved and kept me well for all these years. I recommend Dr. D'Adamo to all those in need and those not in need who wish to keep healthy for a lifetime.

  • 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.

  • Dr. D'Adamo is focused on helping people heal, not marketing. Otherwise everyone would know about his work. I no longer have chronic pain, I can sleep at night for the first time in years. Chiropractic helped the most, until I came here. His program plus chiropractic and I'm able to LIVE again. Being pain free after so many years-I can't even describe how wonderful it is. And it happened because of coming here. There's no place like it. Dr. D'Adamo is brilliant

  • I highly recommend Dr. D’Adamo and the D’Adamo Institute to anyone who wants to take an active, informed role in improving their health and quality of life. I first went to the Institute when I developed some serious digestive issues, including acid reflux. My usual food sensitivities were increasing, and I was feeling deeply stressed and burnt out. I’d already tried a variety of natural approaches and my standard lab work looked great, so I felt stuck.Read more ...

  • As a patient of 12 years Dr. D’Adamo’s program has changed my life for the better. I am 57 years old and feel and look better now than I have my entire life.

  • With the last examination conducted on my wife, my son and myself, which revealed so much improvement, I feel and need to thank you from the bottom of my heart, for all of us, for your devoted, skilled, and efficient treatment. In the few months I have been under your care, I feel much better than I have in the last ten years.

  • It has been a marvelous change – I’ve lost weight, decreased my blood pressure, perfected my digestion and have a general feeling of wellbeing

  • You not only helped me fully understand what was happening in my body, you also, by looking in my eyes, opened my eyes to a part of me that I have been losing touch with over the years - my creative soul.

  • 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.

  • When I first came to you, my health had much to ask for. All my adult life (I am over sixty), I had to take laxatives every night. In addition, I was suffering from hemorrhoids, a spastic stomach and almost continuous headaches.
