Maya Shetreat-Klein, MD

with Kelly Brogan, MD

According to governmental statistics, 12% of children 3-17 are neurodevelopmentally impaired. Genetics cannot explain skyrocketing rates of ADHD, sensory processing problems, and autism spectrum disorders. Child behavioral health cannot be viewed as a head-up phenomenon any longer. It requires the intuition, cutting-edge investigative science, and a systems-based approach that looks at the whole child in their environment. Seeing children’s bodies as messengers sounding the alarm about what is out of balance, this is what a holistic pediatric practitioner is adept at. Maya Shetreat-Klein is pioneering a gentler, more effective approach toward pediatric neurology. She stands in very sparse company at the top of a new paradigm in children’s health.

  • Should we be medicating child behavioral problems?
  • What is driving the epidemic of chronic pediatric illness?
  • What should kids be eating for brain and body wellness?
  • What are the top three supplements for supporting brain health in children?
  • What are the most important diagnostics for vague psychiatric and behavioral problems?

Maya Shetreat-Klein is a board-certified pediatric neurologist offering an integrative approach to neurological, behavioral and cognitive problems for those who believe that children can regain health without using medication as the first option. Her treatments consist mainly of using nutrition as well as supplements, herbals and mind-body, supported by medical evidence. Maya is board-certified in Adult and Pediatric Neurology as well as in Pediatrics. She teaches integrative neurology as faculty at New York Medical College and UMDNJ, and lectures widely. She completed residency training for Pediatrics at Long Island Jewish Medical Center, and then her Adult and Child Neurology fellowship at Montefiore Medical Center. Maya received her medical degree from Albert Einstein College of Medicine, where she was awarded the Edward Padow Award for Excellence in Pediatrics and graduated with a Special Distinction in Research in Child Neurology for her work in Autism. She graduated from Columbia College in New York City with a B.A. in English literature.
