Dr. Melinda (Borrello) Sharma is an immunologist and holistic nutrition consultant. She is a published author and inventor whose work has appeared in Immunology Today, Nature Medicine, the Journal of Immunology and many other prominent scientific journals and books. She is the recipient of numerous honors and awards from the National Institutes of Health. However, her most important achievement is being a mother who struggled to reach her child severely affected with immune dysfunction that was labeled “autism”. By scouring the earth to find practitioners who look beyond the autism label to treat physical illness, Dr. Sharma has opened the door to recovery for her own child and later, others. In 2012, she established Autism Spectrum GPS, LLC, to assist other parents and prevent them from having to travel the difficult road that her family did to healing. She encourages her large Facebook following with inspirational posts to give them tangible hope for each day.
