Dr. Melillo recently sent me a copy of his third book, AUTISM: The Scientific Truth about Preventing, Diagnosing, and Treating Autism Spectrum Disorders- and What Parents Can Do Now.

He looks at what parents can do to help prevent this epidemic from continuing to increase.

Dr. Melillo’s Theory on Autism Caused by a Brain Imbalance

Is autism caused by a brain imbalance?

In his book as well as his practice, Melillo offers a fresh perspective on diagnosing and treating autism spectrum disorders. He believes the many conditions commonly considered causes of autism are actually symptoms of a left brain right brain imbalance. I was able to spend a great deal of time talking with Dr. Melillo about this theory of autism caused by a brain imbalance, including risk factors, preventative measures, and treatment options.

To Melillo the autism epidemic is the crisis of our generation and bold new perspectives are needed to push research into a new cutting edge direction. Melillo tells me that the preliminary research he’s done on his theories look promising. He hopes to change the way research is done in the field of autism. Today over 95% of autism research funding is devoted to finding a gene associated with autism. Melillo believes that autism is caused by genes being turned off and that those same genes can be turned back on again. This is the basis of his work. He also believes that environmental factors also contribute to the autism epidemic.

  1. Dr. Melillo,

    I heard you speak at the opening of the Springfield Office. Since then, I have treated several patients that have completed your protocol. They are a pleasure to work with in gaining strength in developing social skills that they missed during previous developmental stages.
    WBO also offers Brain Balance. I have been through that protocol twice. When I work with clients who have passed through your program, I intentionally remain mindful of mirror neurons and resonance circuitry. They are immediately receptive to the treatment, without words. They are capable of communicating on this level.
    I am usually just helping them catch up to the developmental level that they missed while in the haze of the spectrum. So my work is not as difficult as what your program offers. However, your patients are particularly aware of this style of interpersonal biology. I will read your latest book and continue to help the repaired children catch up in the areas they missed while walking through this haze we call the spectrum.

    • Makes me think of working the brain, doing arm crossing, or just do the opposite of what my usual stances, or ways I stand or do anything, backwards. Like crossing my arms the other way, opposed to how I usually do it, or anything.
      I got that from Assertive Communications, with Barb Stoner, Umpqua Community College, when I went there for a few years, under my fathers VA Benefit.
      I always just wanted to be normal, until I just said, you know what? Who & what is normal? I try and stay super low dramatic, or not dramatic at all about my situation.

  2. I have had all that [“autism, ADHD, dyslexia, and other common neurological disorders.”] & now have neurological nerve pain! [Upper body] like to actually be not alive some days…just out of my mind insane pain…

    My life’s pattern: Born in 1977, seven years after my father came home from Vietnam (he almost dead from Agent Orange related spine issues.)

    Three months after I was born, they had no other choice but to vaccinate me, so my mother & I could go to Okinawa Japan.

    I was placed in special education, even though I scored 130(something) 0n an IQ test in the 1st grade. Still diagnosed autistic.

    Had to work hard to get my High School Diploma, but you know what? I GOT IT!!!

    What do I do? I do not want to talk to just anyone. It embarrasses me, because of all the humiliation I received from people in schools, and I will get mad & angry! :(rrrr

    Am I going to go backwards? & one side of my body is stronger than the other side.

    & thank you!

    • Thank you so much Chris for sharing your story. Know that you are not alone and that there are others who feel exactly the same as you. My hope is that through this website and other networks folks struggling with neurological damage can find each other, learn from each other, and above all else, have hope.
