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

  • 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.

  • 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’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

  • 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.

  • I learned about Dr. James L. D’Adamo about 50 years ago and I’ve been a loyal patient ever since. I met him when he had a clinic in Brooklyn, New York and he has been very helpful to both my family and me.  Everyone at the clinic spends time with you without rushing… I like that. The herbs and supplements are of excellent quality and are effective. I am 90 years old and I am always being complimented on how youthful I look and I owe that and my health to Dr. D’Adamo and Jehovah.  Thank you.

When I began, I was overweight by twenty pounds and depressed in general. Both conditions seemed to me impossible to do anything about.
