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’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.

    Ann Sharp, Las Vegas

  • 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.

  • Since I have been following the diet which you prescribed for me, my health has improved. My eyes no longer burn as they had, enabling me to read more and with more ease. The tired spells I had no longer occur, and I can stay awake for longer periods of time every day. Also, this winter I had no colds, fevers or serious illnesses as I have had in the past.

  • Most medical doctors admit that after waging war on cancer for 40 years that they are still far from a cure. In a new video, Louise Hay--New York Times bestselling author of "You Can heal Your Life," which has over 35 million copies in print, and Hay House Publisher (whose authors include bestselling Wayne Dyer)--describes how Dr. James D'Adamo, originator of the blood type and nutrition concept, helped her  overcome her cancer. Read about it, too, in Dr. D'ADamo's stirring new book "Just an Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure.

  • How do you thank someone for his sincere love, patience and guidance? We all use these words so often but rarely think about the meaning or feeling behind them.

  • When I came to you for treatment, I had excruciating abdominal pains, bad digestion, constant constipation, constant nasal congestion since the age of four and bleeding from the rectum. To me, it is a miracle that all these things have gotten better with your natural method of treatment. I use the word ‘miracle’ because I have suffered with these ailments for over twenty years.

  • 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 ...

  • 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’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
