Autism Spectrum Disorders

Children with autism have a consistent biomedical profile; that is, their biochemistry is similar. These differences in biochemistry can cause changes in a child’s behavior, and lead to a diagnosis of autism.  Traditional doctors are taught that there is no treatment for autism; don’t believe this! Autism is medical, and there ARE interventions available that will help your child feel better.  When they feel better, they behave better!

Using lab testing, Dr McGowin works to find the root of the problem.  Blood draws can be challenging for many children. Because of this, Dr. McGowin has many options to make the process easier for your child. She has access to testing that uses urine, stool, and even blood spots from a finger-prick. Dr McGowin analyzes the child’s labs, then designs an individualized, comprehensive treatment plan. She uses supplements, homeopathy and diet to address a child’s individual needs.

Dr McGowin has experience with very complex cases. Patients come from all over the United States to consult with her!

Using focused lab testing, she works to uncover the root of the problem and address it naturally, using diet and supplements.

Lots of childhood conditions such as ear infections, allergies, colic, constipation and reflux respond favorably to gentle chiropractic adjustments.
