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:
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.
When it comes to treatments now sought for a condition unlike in olden days People are more open minded and seek all available help to treat it. This is very true in case of ASD considering not much interventions or improvement strategies are available naturally Onus falls on Alternative therapies.
But when we examine such procedures even not so well researched or documented ways also find a spot in those therapy courses.
Nonetheless when it comes to Homoeopathic Intervention unless the Parents follow Homoeopathy for a long period of time most of them treat it symptomatically, which is not very much encouraging as it may not provide long term benefits for Health.
|Symptom based Homoeopathy drugs are obtained:|
|Over the counter drugs.|
|Online search engines delivered drugs|
|Another person passing on his prescription which has same diagnostic name.|
|Friends with homoeopathy know how or|
|Prescribed by a Homoeopath residing in another place; who is unable to take complete case.|
Through such prescriptions one can reduce symptoms immediately for which treatment is taken. For example sleepless is treated sleep will improve, if restlessness is addressed that will be reduced; likewise. Symptoms may come back after few months; then if the same medicine is repeated it may not be as effective as for the first time.
Classical Homoeopathy is the one which can bring about total cure on all levels that is Physical, Mental and spiritual;
Immunity is increased and it helps to fight diseases from within. For example if treated for frequent Cold and cough apart from improvement in catching cold person will not have frequent sinus Headaches also allergy to certain foods may be rectified along with it.
Just like in case of symptomatic treatment immediate relief is noticed but it takes time to achieve all desired results.
Moreover cold cough fever are short term acute troubles will go away even if not treated, whereas ASD, Thyroid, PCOD, Asthma, Joint pains are long term chronic diseases and will not improve over time but in turn get worse.
People do not realize this and those who go to same Allopathic doctor to treat Typhoid fever for a month or even bear with relapses cannot wait for a Homoeopathic course to complete. They expect miracles in short time.
|Advantages of classical method are treatments are available for following unusual causes:|
|ü Vaccination related damages.|
|ü High fever related convulsions which may have led to ASD symptoms with regression in normal milestones.|
|ü Heavy metal poisoning back log can be cleared like lead, Aluminium or due to|
|ü Medicinal overdoses of allopathic antibiotics Emotional issues of Mothers during Pregnancy of the affected child.|
|ü Hormonal treatments undergone if any for conceiving by the Mother of te affected Child.|
|ü Genetic orientations and defects are rectified.|
|ü Head injury effects are treated and if possible cured, in case that is the starting point of the regress.|
These are achieved by gradual flush outs of the system but reaction of the person determines outcome.
Also Bio-medical treatments of dietary changes and restrictions like stoppage of proprietary foods; foods with additives as well as restricting sugary, dairy or gluten foods are positive input for the Homoeopathic treatment but Chelation ; other chemical or medication (like Antibiotics) oriented treatments will hinder or even nullify Homoeopathic therapy. So, Homoeopath needs to know all therapies under gone and Parents are expected to stop few medications as per Homoeopaths advice.
However medications for Seizures (epilepsy) or other Psychiatric drugs must be reduced or stopped by concerned Psychiatrist alone and none other.
Homoeopathic treatment in Classical way is by far beneficial than many non-invasive therapies however Symptomatic treatment with Homoeopathy is comparatively safe to random treatments and beneficial for short terms.
According to one’s interest, efforts and intention to achieve progress in their child’s health results will be dependent upon.
Though practically Parents especially Mother’s fight a fierce battle against day today troubles, concerns about other family members; prioritizing this child over whole world it is a uphill task to sustain.
So it has to be dealt with calm mind and put in all possible resources like involving all good intentioned friends and relatives in taking care of the child”s welfare and with patience. Over zeal or Urgency is damaging just as much as laziness and complacence.
|Provided Homoeopathy is by far safest, most helpful as well as result oriented and fulfilling journey (as narrated by Parents of children who are under Homoeopathic care) so, give a try after learning about it a bit.|
