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

  • I initially took my father Antonino Spezzano there because he was a smoker and had emphysema that affected his breathing in a serious manner. That began our relationship in 1981, and I have been a patient myself with Rita my wife for twenty years…Dr. D’Adamo is an exceptional human being other than being a Naturopathic Doctor. I noticed that he takes his work very seriously and cares for his patients. He explains meticulously the infinite details of peoples’ illness and proves where the illness is located in the body…Dr. D’Adamo’s impressive modality and diagnostic methodology is detailed, accurate and precise that it attracted me to continue and persevere contributing to heal my body.

  • Just previous to my coming to you, I had a thorough examination with all types of tests by a very reputable internist. He reported me in excellent physical health. The only recommendation he had for me was to go to a psychiatrist.

  • 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.

    Bodine W. - NY, NY

  • I came to Dr. D’Adamo suffering from face swelling to a point of being un-recognizable, extreme itchiness, terrible fatigue, headaches, anxiety, and depression. After the treatments, my energy is calm and sustained in contrast to the nervous energy I had.  I can hike for hours and bike, walk and travel. While it’s an ongoing challenge to be holistic and dedicated to my own well-being….it’s terrific to have Dr. D. as an example of making radical and lasting changes and of seeing the amazing things that can result from that.

  • I’m writing this note to reaffirm my appreciation for the dramatic improvement in my health during the year and a half since I’ve been under your care. The many doctors consulted prior to you had been able to offer only temporary or superficial relief for my twelve-year condition of chronic colitis. Through you diet instruction and therapy the condition is now well controlled.

  • 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’.

  • Dr. James D'Adamo has been the greatest single influence in my life. I was introduced to him when I was about 21 years old. For over 40 years, through his guidance, expertise, care and sticking fairly close to his recommended diet, supplement program and cutting edge therapies, I have maintained a near perfect health record. My career as an artist, fine art photographer and author is completely dependent on my creativity. Since there is a direct connection between mind and body, I will also attribute some of my professional success to his life changing programs.
