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.

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.
      Patented products
      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.

Depression and Homoeopathic Intervention

stock-photo-woman-looking-through-the-old-window-on-the-garden-or-forest-in-the-countryside-black-and-white-211654111
Change the view

A Lady in her thirties feels unworthy and what is the purpose of living albeit she has an affectionate family, has professional satisfaction as well as no major financial troubles. When people appreciate her abilities  it has negative effect on her.  She thinks people are lying, still she is not worthy. She wanted to lie down always because she had a peculiar tiredness.  There is no relish in really happy situations for her now and seems a bad taste in one’s mouth or bland feel. This is not just Post traumatic (shock) stress but sub clinical Depression. It is not rectified by talks, Positive enforcement, Auto (self) suggestions or scolding’s. She has realized how painful it is for her family members,’ to see your loved one in such condition’ but helpless to come out of it on her own.

Since we talked about Robin William, Hollywood actor’s suicide I thought it’s time to discuss about depression and its consequences. Everyone could have undergone those moments more than just sadness; due to major life conflicts but usually in most patients until it is leading to some major breakdown it is not noticed. I have taken the not much talked about perspective since depression has common features in all age groups but Children receive very less attention.

Even small children are not spared and we may be trying to mend them or accuse them of dullness and sleeping excessively. In reality they may be depressed and know not how to communicate their troubles. Weight gain is common and we may accuse children of excess eating or slowness and laziness. So, if your child is sleeping all time do not accuse or scold but try to figure out actual problem.

Suicidal Depression is altogether different and very severe. Few people show signs of suicide; few say (but they never attempt or even if they attempt adopt very mild forms; not fatal ones) usually if they survive those peak moments it will be alright ; it’s common knowledge but we fail to recognize future threats and severe pain they are still going through again  that they cannot be better by sleeping pills, anti-depressants or Counselling. They need rectifying their mental disorder which is nudging them to kill themselves.Here Homoeopathy not only soothes the pain brings on good sleep but also heals the wound. In this clinic many cases of Suicidal as well as sub clinical Depression has been treated with success and future threats have been mitigated.(see my article on Psychoanalysis and Homoeopathy Psycho analysis)

Even school children have been treated especially those in high school, who undergo severe stress due to peer pressure; of getting unrealistic marks and shaping exceptional careers. These children usually come with complaints of vague Physical problems,  hair fall, pimples, dullness and excess sleep. But on further inquiry actual cause comes out. They may forget at the nick of the moment, have brain fag or blank outs or fall ill with cold, fever frequently. In a case  treated ;a school girl  used to suffer from severe wheeze during exams and will not be able to write it. After treatment she regained her confidence as well as health and scored very well in her Pre- university exams.

Parents set very high standards not recognizing their children’s capabilities and it surely leads to stress and teenage problems. Yet telling your child to do whatever he wants without setting any limits, leads to slackness and substandard performance which is more injurious. At some point of their disastrous careers your children may ask,’ why  you did not guide me properly when I was still immature ’.

To strike balance proper communication along with good rapport with child and occasional scolding and rectifying faults is essential. Again recognizing problems of our children and providing solution is all needed. This includes Homoeopathic treatment to set problems of memory, comprehension and other problems along with addressing hormonal issues of teenage is necessary.  Have a great week ahead

Honestly! How much of Positivism?

We may have to introspect what is that absolute positivism,  which New age Gurus are  always advising of nowadays with workshops of their own. You may have to be your own guru for best and consistent results I guess. There is no one size fits all policy ; you must decide yours;

11454_499978956742512_187278342_n If everything is so picture perfect in life, then we all will cease to be Humans and become divine, is it not?

I read a story about a good old man telling,” When a stone is thrown in water it descends to the amount of force exerted on it rises as much as it sinks”. So, in life if one has difficulties or adversities which can be termed as amount of force which determines ones rise and fall. Have you ever seen a person who has never left his comfort zone achieving anything in life? Usually progeny of rich and most accomplished fall in to this category. They will sit on laurels of their predecessors alone, nothing of their own.

My point here is only one sided assertion cannot be obtained. Our mind cannot be always Positive thinking good or Persevere for excellence so on and so forth. It passes through phases of all negativities before it can settle into Positive mind set .Our choice lies in taking our mind energetically towards reaching that final mind set instead of getting stuck in negative phases. If we jump our adolescence phase of uncertainty, naivety and over consciousness about ones looks does that sound great! At least I am not for it, but after this phase of innocence, when we does not mature to next phase of that will create havoc, agree?

A person loses a beloved one he has to pass through shock, disbelief, guilt, anger and depression. We can share their anguish and say that they are not at fault in the happenings. But pressurising a person to surpass all emotions and to think positively will create turmoil which can lead to Psychiatric illnesses or mental breakdown. So unrealistic advises must be stopped by the doctors especially Psychiatrists who pin point Stress, negative emotions are to be blamed for all things when, they are not seeing results with Medication. But absolute stress free life as well as brimming with Positivism  is not possible, is it not.

I was surprised when someone referred to a Psychiatrist saying each negative thought during pregnancy will lead to defect in genetic pattern of baby. I will want to amend it; if you have Negative thoughts beyond your control which could be due to Hormonal changes noticed during that period or else all dormant features have surfaced due to high sensitivity during Pregnancy, you must get treatment and Homoeopathy alone can help. I stress alone because other drugs are considered not safe during Pregnancy. Still Homoeopathy should be taken under seasoned Doctor and strict no to over the top of counter drugs. But if you are creating unnecessary thought processes like imagining and investigating that which does not exist ; that should be controlled by yourself. Idle mind should not become devil’s work shop, medicines or Therapists  alone cannot help unless you help yourself.

One can say to a person who is in mourning or distress to overcome that as soon as possible, since Life is like a river it will not stop for anything. To take care of our beloved ones and to re-treasure what we have been left with we need focus on future; must take our difficulties and emotions into our stride. Self-pity or dazed mind set is not going to help in any way. We should ask ourselves, ‘now it’s over what has to be done next’; rather than why this happened to me?  With this note I wish you a great week ahead.

 

Is your’s Child driven or Child Oriented Home?

03122009710-001   Bringing up a child is in this era is very challenging or at least we think so. As if parents were never perplexed. But since globalization of feelings; Indian Parents are confused like never before, I guess. They are Ad driven and dreamy in approach and do things for the sake others, rather than prioritize according to their household needs or in the best interests of their children. For example Ads show that only so called Health drinks can make your child Taller Stronger and sharper and what er….? Honestly can we believe in those business driven tactics? If we know Milk is very good for health is it just after research confirmed Calcium richness or other benefits or there was credibility before this? Is it not necessary to know what goes into those drinks? They will surely alter to suit for longer shelf life, besides the Aluminum foils are used to wrap those food which causes poisoning which leads to constipation and other problems. Both of my Children grew without Health drinks and they are as normal as anyone of their age. If someone suggests to give a health drink cause your child is poorly nourished think about all these:
1. Usually children especially young ones feel full with those wheat based foods and will fuss over regular meals.
2. Few months or years after regular usage they will put on weight, it is common sense because malt actually useful for gaining weight, mostly extra pounds are unwelcome and unhealthy as well. Health is not directly proportionate to weight or height.
Instead cannot we prepare health drinks mix with ;Wheat, Jowar, Millets, Groundnuts, Cardamom, Cashews, separately dry roasted every fortnight or so and prepare the drink which tastes like kheer (if averse to sweet buttermilk can be added to boiled and cooled drink) and have it daily?
Someone jokingly said “we humans consume processed foods which even bacteria and fungus does not want to take!”, elaboration not necessary I guess, gluten is the new enemy for new age Nutritionists, but natural Atta; homemade chapattis, does they look that villainy?
If your child is very active, playful as well as friendly, good at studies and is Height or weight such an issue? You search any medical literature; best nutrition is obtained from natural food alone and supplements  as well as added nutrients are only for convalescents (recovering from sickness).
If Height or weight is actually a concern then, better you consult a Homoeopath and obtain correct guidance. Homoeopathic Medicines have helped to improve general Health and children have grown taller over years with them. Moreover, Parents who provide Homoeopathic Care to their  Children, vouch by the fact that the child is very Smart and active.

Alfalfa Tonic available in Homoeopathic shops has time again proved to increase Appetite, helps in healthy weight gain if necessary, removes tiredness, gives sound sleep moreover has no side effects. It is rejuvenatory when you actually feel tired  or overworked and it need not be taken regularly. Calc Phos 6x is also recommended for children whose bones are weak or calcium deficient and who have teething problems or less appetite.
Have a Happy week ahead and do read second part of this write up next week.
