Cure and treatment approach

The Pallanti Method

The Pallanti Method is a method of Translational Clinical Neuroscience.

Dr. Pallanti learns from every patient about unique connections between psychiatric symptoms and their medical and genetic conditions.

The Pallanti Method is a method of Translational Clinical Neuroscience, a systematic approach to health care that goes through the analysis and translation of clinical symptoms into their functional meaning.

Dr. Pallanti's first priority is to listen to what the patient says and how the patient tells his or her story, from which he is able to translate the discourse to unveil the dynamics of distress in relation to the patient’s biography and brain functioning, as evidenced by objective evaluations.

Dr. Pallanti integrates and coordinates the patient's subjective history with research on the brain circuits underlying the reported disease, upon which depends every medical, pharmacological and non-pharmacological intervention, selected and tailored to the individual person.

Dr. Pallanti learns from every patient about unique connections between psychiatric symptoms and their medical and genetic conditions that help to advance his knowledge in basic medical science.

The holistic approach to psychiatric disorders

The Pallanti Method consists in using the latest Neuroscientific evidence to interpret disorders, especially in cases of resistance to first-line treatment.

Dr. Pallanti’s therapeutic model is holistic (from the Greek holos- 'whole'), as the cure centers on a person and not solely on his or her disorder. The goal remains to recover from the disorder and not merely to overcome the acute crisis. In addition to reducing symptoms, we guide our patients in active, learning strategies to manage, maintain and improve their health in the first person.

The holistic doctor’s directly confronting and consulting with his patient is able to grasp ― well beyond the aridity of a clinical report to be diagnosed ― the complexity of a life and the uniqueness of a personal history.

The Pallanti Method represents a translational clinical work that does not stop at the mere observation and consideration of clinical symptoms and patients' narratives of them, but deepens into each individual scenario with reliable and scientifically validated psychometric assessments, functional and laboratory tests, finally arriving at the formulation of an hypothesis that becomes the starting point for providing integrated care tailored to the individual.

The Method's professional ethic is holistic and focuses on the person understood in his or her multifacetedness of everyday life, work life, relationships and perspective.

The Assessment, while broadening the field of observation beyond symptoms, offers the patient himself and his/her family members information about his/her own suffering that can be used therapeutically. In these ways, the patient becomes a therapeutic entity in himself, his own  medical doctor, by coming into contact and engaging his or her own symptoms, now detected and interpreted as messengers of chronic habits, bodily attitudes, emotional behaviors, and mental processes he or she seeks to improve.

The holistic treatment of psychiatric disorders is also able to address and improve the individual’s well-being through the use of therapies that can modulate the immune system, which are rigorously and scientifically validated.

Cutting-edge solutions for Sports as well: customized precision interventions

Individual, team and organizational impact

The Pallanti Method used at the Institute of Neuroscience ― as structured to suit the individual person carrying a unique life story ― can also be applied in different areas than psychiatric disorders.

In fact, the same methodology used to treat the most resistant disorders is also applicable to improving sports performance, as well as to the multi-level prevention of the diseases themselves and their recurrence.

The Pallanti Method, when applied to the sports world, is able to offer personalized interventions that achieve:

― An improvement in sports performance;

― An increase in physical and psychological energy;

― An acceleration of functional recovery;

― A reduction in vascular damage of a post-traumatic nature.

In addition, each of these interventions is customized and organized in specific ways that also permit the prevention of disorders.
