Drug-Less ADD/ADHD Support

Dr. Tammy M. Kaminski is a Certified SHINE Doctor trained by World-Renowned ADD/ADHD Expert Dr. Edward Hallowell.

SHINE, Special Help Integrating Neurological Experience, is a certification course for Wellness Chiropractors
that focuses on identifying and caring for children & adults with ADD/ADHD.

Dr. Kaminski offers a holistic approach to help people with their challenges associated with ADD/ADHD. Her practice combines ADD/ADHD Expertise, NSA (Network Spinal Analysis- a brain-based low force technique) Chiropractic Care, Neurological assessment with Exercise and Nutrition counseling.

ADD/ADHD is typically characterized by impulsivity, inattentiveness, and hyperactivity – characteristics that make it hard for those with this trait to reach their highest potential. Dr. Kaminski considers ADD/ADHD to be a trait which contains many gifts and talents, not a disability. When well-managed effectively, those with ADD/ADHD have accomplished extraordinary successes, but if undiagnosed or untreated, ADD/ADHD can wreck lives.

Dr. Hallowell states that having ADD/ADHD is like having a Ferrari engine for a brain, but with bicycle brakes. In keeping with this analogy, Dr. Kaminski says, “I strengthen the “brakes” of children and adults with ADD/ADHD while reconnecting their body and mind to further tune-up their “engines” (brain). Medication is not the answer and should be the last resort, if administered at all.” Recent studies indicate that the use of medication to help manage ADD/ ADHD is on the rise. Many people with ADD/ADHD prefer and are seeking out a holistic, alternative approach and are already familiar with Dr. Hallowell and his NY Times bestselling book, Delivered from Distraction as well as his many other books on ADD/ADHD.

Dr. Kaminski has been caring for the ADD/ADHD population for years and now combined with the SHINE Protocols’ positive strengths-based approach is further able to identify the unique gifts inherent in everyone with ADD/ADHD allowing them to achieve their full potential.
