Child Right Brain for stimulation of the right hemisphere in Children. Total length: 35 Minutes 43 Seconds
Listening to this "Wolves & Whales" CD may help to improve attention span, ability to concentrate, reading comprehension, social behavior, nonverbal communication, and math skills.
BrainBalance Music is designed and customized to Dr. Robert J. Melillo's specifications, based on extensive research and knowledge that certain types and frequencies of sound are specifically processed by the two hemispheres of the brain differently. By using specific music and sounds BrainBalance Music may help to stimulate one hemisphere more than the other and possibly create more balance in the brain.
The majority of symptoms in children and adults including attention deficits, learning disabilities, autism, obsessive compulsive disorder, depression, anxiety, chronic pain and many more are all directly a result of an imbalance of electrical activity in the brain. There are many environmental factors that can produce an imbalance of electrical activity and function of the two sides of the brain documented as either an increase of activity on one side or a decreased activity on the other. Research has shown that the side of the brain that is most problematic is most often the side that is understimulated. The use of BrainBalance Music as as source of stimulation to the brain may be a very powerful tool to achieve a balance of brain activity.
Adverse activity is the right hemisphere, which is thought to be the one in ADD, OCD, anxiety disorder, and autism is specifically stimulated by low frequency tones, negative, or downbeat music, and music that creates images such as environmental sounds without words. Decreased activity in the left hemisphere which is seen in dyslexia, learning disabilities, poor memory and depression too name a few, is stimulated by high frequency tones, positive or upbeat music, words and repetitive mathematical, rhythmic sounds. We have created BrainBalance Music utilizing these facts as well as other research into how sound effects the hemispheres. BrainBalance Music is designed specifically to create a balance of activity between the hemispheres.
Dr. Robert J. Melillo, an internationally known chiropractic neurologist, has been in private practice for 17 years. For most of that time, he has been a postgraduate professor of neurology and rehabilitation. Dr. Melillo has devoted the later half of his career to the study of learning disabilities and behavioral disorders in both children and adults. He has searched to find the cause of childhood disorders like ADD , ADHD, Dyslexia, Obsessive compulsive disorder,Tourettes syndrome,and autism to name a few . He also has researched depression and anxiety disorders in both children and adults.
Credits include: - Former chairman of the American Board of Chiropractic Neurology. - Post graduate course coordinator and developer of Northwestern Chiropractic Colleges Rehabilitation diplomat program. - Currently a board member of the Ascent School (for Autistic children)
Research findings: What Dr. Melillo's research has found is that most childhood and adult cognitive and behavioral problems are a result of an electrical imbalance in the brain. This imbalance can be produced by a lack of stimulation or a skeletal or muscular imbalance of the body. These imbalances result in the brain focusing on using the more active side and ignoring the under-stimulated hemisphere. Therefore information is processed consciously and subconsciously by only one hemisphere instead of two, and the result is abnormal behavior and/or emotions or other physical symptoms of illness.
Dr Melillo has devised a unique approach to improving these symptoms known as The Unlimited Potential Program utilizing specific forms of physical activity coupled with sensory stimulation (such as specifics types of music, light, smells, etc.), cognitive therapy and nutrition. This is all done with specific attention to balancing an individual's brain activity between the right and left hemispheres.
Dr. Melillo has completed his first textbook which is a compilation of his research and clinical results. He has also been working on a book for parents to explain his findings and treatment. He has done seminars all over the United States and in Europe. Dr. Melillo also maintains an extremely active practice in a state of the art Health Care Facility on Long Island.
