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

  • For at least three years before coming to your office, I had been feeling run down, tired, depressed, extremely irritable and my nerves were on edge twenty-four hours a day. Everything seemed to bother me – the slightest sound would make me jump. My attention span was limited and my capacity for thinking a complete sentence was also at a premium. I experienced frequent vaginal yeast infections and didn’t know what it was like to breathe through my nose, because my nasal passages were always blocked.

  • I have been troubled with arthritis in my hip for several years, have gone to an orthopedic specialist who injected a large needle with cortisone into my hip bone, which was most painful and without any results whatsoever. This was done again 10 days later also without results. Since I have come to you for treatments, my hip is very much improved, and I am able to walk with more ease and can get up from the chair and out of the bed without holding on to everything as I pass.

  • I have been a patient since 2005. When I first visited Dr. D’Adamo, I had fibromyalgia…suffered from short-term memory loss, anxiety....and depression. Today, at 67, I feel better than I did years ago and recently returned from an extended photography Scuba trip - diving 28 times over 12 days with no injuries or illnesses.

  • 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.

  • When I went to Dr. D’Adamo for help, I had many health problems. I had chronic anemia, migraine headaches, sinusitis bronchitis, poor circulation and weak feet…I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation and gratitude for the expert care and guidance my daughter and I received since we’ve been under your care. To be the beneficiary of your knowledge and wisdom is indeed a privilege.

  • 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.

  • 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.
