melillobookcover2Preventing and treating autism, ADHD, Tourette’s, OCD, and other childhood brain disorders

Does your child have ADHD, autism, Tourette’s, OCD, dyslexia, learning disabilities, or another brain-based disorder? Or perhaps you’re having second thoughts about conceiving because the risks of giving birth to a child who develops autism, ADHD, or other brain development disorders is so much higher today. If so, Dr. Robert Melillo’s new book, Autism: The Scientific Truth About Preventing, Diagnosing, and Treating Autism Spectrum Disorders–and What Parents Can Do Now, was written for you. Dr. Melillo was compelled to write this book based partly on emerging research, but more so on disheartening conversations with young couples who are opting out of parenthood because of the autism epidemic.

  • Looking for Liposomal Glutathione August 24, 2011 at 6:57 pm

    Which brand or source of liposomal glutahione do you recommend? Are there creams that GSH? From you book, I understand you say to apply it to the soles of one’s feet.


    • Dr. Elle September 25, 2013 at 2:37 pm

      Glutathione levels are not effectively increased by oral supplementation or transdermal creams… don’t waste your money on useless supplements. Since glutathione is so unstable, it cannot successfully be compounded by a pharmacist either. The reason is that, glutathione is manufactured inside the cell from its precursor amino acids, glycine, glutamate and cystine (a more stable form of cysteine). Food/supplements that effectively increase glutathione levels are: NAC, Whey (undenatured), broccoli, avocado, spinach, raw eggs, garlic, fresh organic/pastured meats, to name a few. Hope this helps.

      • Joyce March 2, 2014 at 11:19 pm

        I think you need to check this out in regards to glutathione. Our bodies are able to make it’s own glutathione if our bodies are replenished with the correct cellular communication. Glutathione is the MASTER anti-oxidant and its efficiency is VERY important to health.

  • Brie Wieselman, L.Ac March 14, 2012 at 4:15 pm

    In the most recent post, Dr. K makes reference to testing for TH-1, 2, 3, and 17. At the time of the 3 day Mastering the Thyroid seminar I took, he said taht he thought at that time that cytokine testing was useless in it’s current state and inaccurate at best. What lab does he presently use to check these. Does he run independant cytokines, or whole profiles? Thanks- Brie

  • Ligea Ruff June 14, 2012 at 7:27 pm

    I don’t recommend Cultures for Health for people with AI. I just ordered from them and their cultures are “manufactured in a facility that produces products made with wheat, soy, eggs, nuts and fish (including shrimp).” (quoted from the back of the box) Definitely NOT for people with celiac, nut, egg, or soy allergies!!! I just wasted my money and wanted to warn others.

    • Gloria February 19, 2013 at 8:43 pm

      Try BODY ECOLOGY culture! No need to use salt. It’s a probiotic culture.

      If you search YouTube via “fermantation” look for the series of videos with the originator of the product.

  • Jeff September 26, 2012 at 10:20 am

    I have been told by many people that a new product will help me with not only gluten sensitivity but also with depression, mental fatigue, and hormone balancing. They claim that Lamanine is the miracle cure for everything. I looked it up and it is just an amino acid. Can this be possible? Are there any long term probelems with taking lamaine?

    I too am looking for the hypoallergenic protein powder as described in the thyroid book. Does anyone have suggestions on a brand?

  • Laura Ruby August 26, 2013 at 10:40 am

    Dr. Kharrazian spoke at one of my functional medicine modules. I love your approach to managing Hashimotos but am having a hard time finding a good quality “liposomal cream with glutathione and superoxide dismutase”. Can you please send me more information on the products you recommend?

    I have been on a vegan diet now for about 2 years. I have tried to do this diet and go back on meat and had a bad immune response that resulted in widespread inflammation. I use chickpeas largely and black beans occasionally as a replacement for meat protein, but beans are not allowed on this diet.

    I am interested in anyone who has done this diet as a vegan successfully. I also had a severe herxheimer reaction (at least that is what I think it was…felt like the flu) to the GI Revive supplement and wanted to know if anyone else has either and how they dealt with it. I had severe muscle and bone pain, was crying cause it hurt so much, and I could feel parts of my body get hot and then really cold, I was shivering and then would feel exhausted, all within a matter of minutes from one symptom to the next. Any input or feedback would be so greatly appreciated. I have a 2 year old son and a 5 year old daughter. I am wasting away here because of hashimotos, leaky gut and reactive hypoglycemia. The fatigue is by far the worst.


    • Loretta March 8, 2014 at 12:08 pm

      When I was a vegan for 2 years, I wound up having a lot of health issues that later turned into autoimmune. From my own experience, paleo is the best way to heal of any autoimmune disease. While there may be some exceptions, I don’t personally know of any vegans who are totally healthy because they eat too many grains, starches, sugar and soy. And practitioners, MDs and DCs specializing in autoimmune disorders have found that Paleo works best. From my experience, as well as knowing others with autoimmune disorders, a Paleo diet has worked best. I’m not saying this is the norm for everyone, because I’m not in everyone’s shoes, and all our bodies are different. But if you’re still sick from eating what you’re eating, then I would consider a different plan. But paleo alone might not do it. Dr. Kharrazian’s plan may be the best. I know that when I eat beans, legumes and nuts, I don’t feel as well.

      • Diane March 29, 2014 at 12:22 pm

        same happened to me- vegan for 2 years and went down the tubes and put on 30 lbs and had low blood sugar all the time until I started eating fish and meat again. Wish I would have known I had Hashimoto’s at the time.

  • Stacie November 16, 2013 at 2:18 pm

    I\’m with Lisa, are there any vegans doing this diet? I\’ve started it 3 days ago. Typically I eat a lot of gluten free grains, nuts, seeds and occasionally tofu and beans. Where am I going to get my protein from now? I can\’t eat meat because it makes me sick. I\’ve been reading up on the paleo diet based on the resource listed above. It\’s very heavy on the meat. Also, I noticed some recipes include foods on the \”do not eat\” list Dr. K has, such as nuts, and seeds. Are these \”allowed\” sometimes? I don\’t eat eggs, but I also noticed the Paleo diet includes eggs, but Dr. K\’s list shows them as a \”no\”. I just want to make sure I heal my leaky gut, but I don\’t want to lose weight doing it. I\’ve already lost 4 pounds in the last 3 days and at this point I\’m going to waste away!

  • Elaine November 18, 2013 at 2:59 pm

    I only know of one practitioner who is working with vegans on this diet. It is difficult due the antigenic nature of vegan sources of protein. If meat is making you sick it could be diagnostic for low hydrochloric acid, h. pylori overgrowth, stomach/intestinal autoimmunity, gallbladder congestion, or other issues. Might be worth investigating.

    The practitioner I’m referring to is Linda Clark:

    Nuts and seeds can be antigenic, depends on the person so that’s why they are restricted in the beginning. Same with eggs. The diet is meant to be primarily plant-based but with sufficient protein and fat as needed to avoid low blood sugar.

Any doctors my friend can visit. She is based out of New York City area, but is open to travel across to another state if needed.

    Thanks very much for the help.

  • Elle September 23, 2014 at 9:22 am

    Hello. I have been seeing one of Dr. K’s practitioners for the past 8 months. I have adrenal fatigue and Hashimoto’s and I take 88mcg t4 and 5 mcg t3. While I have made progress in lowering my TPO antibodies and feel better, my T3 is still low and I have developed tendinitis in my shoulders lasting over a year. I have asked if we should worry about parasites/infections, but without symptoms, Dr. B doesn’t see the need to test. He also does not feel TH1/TH2 dominance is a factor. I also asked if I should eliminate nightshades, nuts and seeds. I have been told to just stay on the protocol; however, I am concerned there is more to this than just cutting out the foods on my cyrex lab and taking apex supplements (a lot of them$$$$). Does this make sense if the past three labs show no improvement of T3? How long do I have to give this?

  • Rose November 17, 2014 at 11:15 am
