Autism and Homoeopathic care

Autism is the most frequently confronted topic for Homoeopathic Doctors of our age, yet very little information is available to Parents and care takers of those children.
It is estimated that there are 20 lakh (2 million) individuals in India suffering from Autism/ ASD using the generalized prevalence figures of 1/250 to 1/500. But apart from special Schools little guidance is there for general Public that too for lower income sectors. Caring such children is a huge burden not only emotionally but also financially. Moreover it’s a continuous process and demands lots of time, perseverance and care without guarantee of any light in the end of the tunnel.
Vaccination can be one of the major contributors for Autistic symptoms (about 70% of cases). Homoeopaths will advise to stop further vaccination to prevent damages; if the child is diagnosed or showing features of ASD.
After treating with Homeopathy one can expect:
Improvement in
 General Health and quality of Life.
 Improvement gaining and Sustenance of ongoing treatments.
 Prevention of regressive mode of Health or
 Breaking Statuesque that is helping in achieving next levels early than those inconsistent long term progress.

Homoeopathic therapy started with individually evaluated case registering and personalized treatment established In Homoeopathic context; Diagnosis plays a complimentary role and each case is individually case recorded and treated accordingly.
Note that information provided in this article or not just possibilities but compiled on the facts of results obtained from this clinic as well as other Homoeopathic published research papers.
Though each case is different chances of getting good results is very high.
o ATEC scores recorded to begin with and chronicled regular at intervals.
The factors since inception that is before the birth of that child till date are analyzed in accordance with Physical, mental and circumstances around which problem started and guided, individually tailored treatment for problem areas considered.

I. Like if the child has deficient speech that can be improved alongside speech therapist.
II. If child is slow in understanding or applying mind that can be treated along with other modules.
III. If the child is very restless and inattentive that can be treated.
IV. Child is violent and aggressive that also can be treated.
V. If child’s sleep is not compatible with natural biological clock say it sleeps at 1-3 AM till late noon that also can be regularized.
VI. If the child refuses to eat or has gastric related problems or allergies that also can be treated.

o Yet a structure emerges over a period of time which could help in framing Protocol for treating cases effectively. A set of medicines can be pinned down which helps to get consistent results in lesser time.
o It helps in determining prognosis or progress of other such cases.
Though most of the symptoms can be rectified by consistent Homeopathic treatment and at times cure can be expected individually; people tend to seek help as a last resort. If Homoeopathy is included early especially in the age of 3 years or so along with other therapies will be very helpful and at times curable.
Mostly they give up half way in pursuit of better attractive options and many a times do not care to come back to Homoeopathy even when other treatments are not helping.
Homoeopath can specifically try to treat:
• Vaccination related damages. Medicines to treat specific problems if the trouble has begun after any event.
• High fever related convulsions which may have led to ASD symptoms with regression in normal milestones. This is seen in Brain fevers or constant high fevers; not all high fevers with convulsions can lead to symptoms of Autism.
• Heavy metal poisoning back log. If any relevant history read my blog on Lead poisoning and reset your system with Homoeopathy.
• Emotional issues of Mothers during Pregnancy of the affected child. This is major contributor for the symptoms and it is directly proportionate to mother’s emotional burden. Homoeopathy alone can remove past emotional injuries as far as my knowledge goes.
• Hormonal treatments undergone if any for conceiving by the Mother of the affected Child. This can two faced usually ladies of advanced age most propably seek assisted pregnany treatments, moreover they already would have abused hormonal therapies in the past which can add to the problems.
• Genetic orientations and defects based on Family History. Not very predominant yet in few cases it could be traced.
• Head injury effects in case that is the starting point of the regress. Again very important reason for regress in child’s milestones but most of the times exact link may not be remembered.

They forget that this problem is so huge unlike, cold or fever.
It needs consistency and perseverance;
Loads of patience on parents’ part in providing the treatment which needs time and constant at least monthly once follow up.
As well as handling the child with care and patience.

By evaluating the effectiveness of Homoeopathy in the Neuro-Psychological axis of ASD not only Children improve symptomatically but also will gain Immunity and holistic health.

In India the taboo of “Autistic” label scares parents so much so that they keep it secret, since most surrounding people are insensitive and ask hurting questions, they fail to recognize that the trouble has arrived; no other way out.
Awareness about this enormous problem, very early detection and changing our own views- Perspectives will help to overcome this problem to a great extent.

So it has to be dealt with calm mind and put in all possible resources with patience. Over zeal or Urgency is damaging just as much as laziness and complacence.
Putting it into another perspective the other way round is parents want their child to be as all other children are, and refuse to accept the differences. They are (over) sensitive about what others think and making their own lives very tough. If kin of such children are supporting and helping those who take care of them, they will be more relaxed and face those adversities with a conviction. So, I can say collective change in the way people handle these issues is the need of hour.
To take care of such children few tips have been provided in the websitewww.rajhomoeoclinic.com articles
