Brain Balance has become a term that is used in conjunction with helping ADHD kids regain brain function. Dr. Robert Melillo in his famous book, “Disconnected Kids” was one of the first people to coin this phrase. Melillo studied under the Godfather of Functional Neurology- Dr. Ted Carrick. Their groundbreaking work in the area of functional neurology helped pave the way for a new understanding of how the brain functions and what happens when the brain isn’t firing on all cyclinders. The brain has a hierarchy of signaling that when interrupted leads to misfiring leading to failed communications within the brain AND the body.
Many children along the autism spectrum and ADHD spectrum have brains that are not balanced. When the two hemisphere’s of the brain don’t sync up, communication within the brain fails. This leads to behaviors and “symptoms” commonly associated with the spectrum including inattention and hyperactivity. Learning disabilities, OCD, ADD, ADHD, Tourette’s, Dyslexia, and Autism all have shown improvement by balancing the brain.
I studied under Dr. Yannick Pauli of Switzerland who shared his knowledge of this subject with me and did extensive training learning this approach and bringing it to the midwest in St. Louis, MO.
