Neuropsychiatric conditions include ADHD and autism, which have both overlapping symptoms and overlapping root causes. Several different factors have been shown to contribute to ADHD and diagnoses on the autism spectrum. These include genetic sensitivity, exposure to specific types of toxins, infections, diet-related factors, lifestyle factors and abnormalities in the gut microbiome.
Research paints an ever clearer picture that the inherited, genetic component is relatively insignificant, while environmental factors are gaining increasing focus in scientific studies. At Nordic Clinic, we take into account the latest research in working with children and adults who suffer from neuropsychiatric conditions. Our tool box contains a wide selection of laboratory tests, lifestyle advice and dietary advice to apply in individual action plans.
