Autism and Functional Neurology

Autism Clinic in Denver utilizing cutting-edge neuroscience

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a complex neurodevelopmental condition that affects individuals in various ways. Traditional options for care often involve behavioral therapy, speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, and medications. However, at Axon Integrative Health in Denver, we take a unique approach to autism through Functional Neurology, a groundbreaking field that harnesses the power of cutting-edge neuroscience to address the underlying neurological issues associated with ASD.

Understanding Autism Spectrum Disorder

Autism is characterized by challenges in social communication, repetitive behaviors, and restricted interests. The spectrum nature of the disorder means that individuals with autism can display a wide range of symptoms and abilities. While traditional therapies focus on managing behavioral aspects, Functional Neurology delves deeper into the neurological roots of the condition.

The Axon Integrative Health Difference

At our clinic in Denver, we prioritize Functional Neurology to provide a comprehensive and individualized approach to autism care. Our multidisciplinary team of experts leverages advanced techniques, including neuromodulation, neurofeedback, brain-based therapies, IV therapy, and hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). These modalities work in tandem to address the specific neurological challenges associated with autism.


Neuromodulation involves using targeted electrical or magnetic stimulation to regulate and optimize neural activity. This technique can be customized to address specific areas of the brain implicated in autism, promoting better connectivity and function.


Neurofeedback is a non-invasive method that trains individuals to regulate their brain activity. By providing real-time feedback on brainwave patterns, this therapy helps individuals with autism learn to modulate their neural activity, leading to improved focus, attention, and emotional regulation.

Brain-Based Therapies

Our clinic employs a range of brain-based therapies designed to stimulate neural pathways and enhance overall brain function. These therapies are tailored to the unique needs of each individual, promoting neuroplasticity and supporting positive changes in behavior and cognition.

IV Therapy

Intravenous (IV) therapy delivers essential nutrients directly to the bloodstream, supporting overall health and brain function. This approach can be particularly beneficial for individuals with autism who may have nutritional deficiencies or challenges with oral supplementation.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)

HBOT involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized room or chamber. This therapy has shown promise in improving brain function, reducing inflammation, and supporting the overall well-being of individuals with autism.

Personalized Care for Lasting Results

The key to our success at Axon Integrative Health lies in our commitment to personalized care. We recognize that each autistic person is unique, and our team tailors treatment plans to address specific neurological challenges and goals. By combining cutting-edge neuroscience with a holistic approach, we aim to empower individuals with autism and their families to achieve lasting improvements in quality of life.

If you are seeking an innovative and comprehensive approach to autism care, Axon Integrative Health in Denver stands at the forefront of Functional Neurology, providing hope and support for individuals on the autism spectrum. Our commitment to advancing neurological health is driven by a vision of a brighter and more inclusive future for all.
