Dr. Phillip C. DeMio is the father of a child with autism, and has been an M.D. for over twenty years. He graduated from the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine with honors in metabolism, women and children’s health, and neurosciences. Prior to medical school he taught and worked in the organic chemistry laboratory at Creighton University in Omaha Nebraska. He is an experienced biomedical physician, an author of medical topics including alternative and conventional medicine, and is accredited for speaking nationally on medical topics including brain toxicology, nutrition, and use of supplements in health and disease for children and adults. Dr. DeMio’s philosophy is that our children and loved ones are first and foremost in all of our treatments. He is the founder of the American Medical Autism Board (AMAB), which is the first organization to board certify physicians for autism treatments. Dr. DeMio focuses on the biomedical treatment of the Autism Spectrum Disorders. The goals of treatment are relief of symptoms, restoration of health, and the maximizing your child or loved one’s cognitive function and independence. Dr. DeMio aims to improve your child’s function by improving cognition and gastrointestinal health with the aim that he or she can become functional and independent. The Autism Spectrum Disorders are treatable. Increasingly evidence shows that autism is a metabolic, GI, immune, and nutritional disorder which is often the result of toxins such as mercury, vaccines, and those that may be in the environment. This leads to profound adverse effects on the brain, development, and behavior. That is, the Autism Spectrum Disorders are medical, not mental, and they respond to medical treatment.
