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 came to Dr. James L. D’Adamo because of difficulty in urinating due to an enlarged prostrate gland. I had seen other doctors who told me that if this condition got any worse, a prostrate operation would be advisable.

  • I want to thank you for all the help you’ve given me…I have not had an asthma attack in 6 months.

  • 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.

  • A fellow crewmate, who was a patient of Dr. D’Adamo, recommended the Institute after finding out about my health problems. I imagine everyone who visits your practice has some kind of a life change experience – for me the experience has been truly life transforming and life-saving. I came to the clinic with alarming blood chemistry metrics for an individual with type 2 diabetes. I had already lost a substantial amount of weight. I had tried a wide array of the pharmaceutical approaches to diabetes management. Nothing was working. My doctor was concerned that my insulin receptors appeared to be shutting down and that I might need an insulin pump. It seemed like a deadly downward spiral.

  • 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.

To be the beneficiary of your knowledge and wisdom is indeed a privilege.

  • Your guidance has helped me or should I say assisted me to get a lot healthier. My kidneys are definitely better.

    Doug

  • 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 must admit my initial skepticism of the validity of the quick and unorthodox diagnosis you gave me. I now have a satisfactory understanding of the natural principles underlying iridology and some other homeopathic diagnostic techniques. So, in following the diet you prescribed for me, I have become less tense, more psychologically real, owing to the increased clarity of my mind.Read more ...

  • 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.
