Dr. Arden Baker-Hadley, MSOM, ND

Dr. Baker-Hadley focuses on the metabolic differences that affect the behaviours of children with autism, looking at nutrient absorption and utilization as well as removal of appropriate food sensitivities. In addition there are always some specialized dietary modifications that need to occur while supporting appropriate detoxification and absorption of nutrients. The goal is to maximize each person’s biology by removing obstacles and ensuring ideal nutrition and nutrient absorption

Our Events

I Have Autism

"I have Autism. I may not look unusual, but I experience the world much differently than you do. Autism makes it difficult for me to communicate with you, and sometimes causes me to have unusual behaviour. I am doing my very best. Please be patient with me and my caregivers, who are trying to give me a full and happy life."
