Interview with Douglas Doman

Exclusive on FMTV

Series: FMTV Special Expert Interviews | Runtime: 34m 02s | Release date: 2016

Douglas Doman is the vice-director of 'The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential'. As president of The Institutes in Europe, he is responsible for The Institutes' operations and families throughout Europe. He also serves on the board of directors of The Institutes in Mexico, where courses and the lecture series are presented each May.

The Institutes' campus focuses on brain-injured children and clinical programs to help them reach full potential. Douglas’ early years on the staff were spent creating the 'School for Human Development', a school for brain-injured young adults. He and his staff created the world’s first Human Development Course, a circuit utilizing physical activities that promote brain organization and development.

From 1977 to 1980, Douglas and his staff made significant breakthroughs in the physical development of well and brain-injured children. They researched and discovered the quantification of human mobility and, working with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, helped create the Vehicle for Initial Crawling.

Douglas co-authored 'How to Teach Your Baby To Be Physically Superb', which has been translated into 10 languages, and is the author of 'How To Teach Your Baby To Swim'.

In this interview with Douglas you will discover:

  • The complete spectrum of childhood behavioral disorders
  • How the current treatment system for behavioral disorders only focuses on symptoms rather than root cause
  • The succession and discovery of new genetic brain diseases, and why unique and rare brain disorders are on the rise
  • Why mobility in brain injured children is Douglas’ specialty
  • The types of programs that run through 'The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential'
  • Recreating normal development; re-teaching children to be physically excellent
  • How children with neurological disorders are highly sensitive to certain foods
  • Why the institute focuses heavily on the nutrition and diet plan of their patients; dissemination of individual meal plans that take into account digestive health, genetics, and individual preference
  • How Douglas helps children reach full social, intellectual & physical intelligence

This is a very important organization. I have taken a course there in Nov 2016, What to do about your brain injured child. It was the best course I have ever taken in regards to trying to help my son. I am already a Health Coach( IIN graduate) and have been following a pretty healthy diet for my son and family. My son , who has a brain injury has since I have been to the course been able to get off his seizure medication. This is huge for him.....
I strongly believe that this is in part due to the fact that he is on a very healthy diet and exercise. I learned so much from the institute, they do amazing things for many children.

It is the most importaint video to watch for parents on food matters. We use a similar method for my daughter, based on the same principles, and it has completely changed her life - health and neurological function has improved dramatically. It would be great if he would do more videos. The IAHP has a great knowledge in improving brainfunction and in nutrition as well, and it would be great if it can be shared here :)
