Dr. Michael Lyon

Dr. Lyon is director of research and education at the Oceanside Functional Medicine Research Institute on Vancouver Island. He has served for four years as an Olympic Team physician and head of a National Sport Science Committee for Sport Canada. His current research is directed toward developing new, non-pharmacological strategies for the treatment of fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and heart disease. The program is outlined in Dr. Lyon's book, Healing the Hyperactive Brain, which is used as a textbook for naturopathic and nutritional schools and is taught to physicians and health care practitioners all around the world, but it is also intended for people without medical training or scientific background. Dr. Lyon's major concerns with current treatments for ADHD relate to the side effects from amphetamines, which include personality deviations and toxicity, especially toxicity from long term use.
