How Homeopathy can help Autism?

Autism is a medical disorder affecting children. It can be mostly diagnosed in the first 3 years of life. Autism affects the way a child relates and responds to his or her environment. It affects his interaction with other people and often delays certain developmental milestones like speech. It impacts their academic performance as well. It is often difficult for parents to spot the early symptoms of autism because they might be mistaken as just a developmental delay, which could be taken care of without medical intervention. However, autism is not just a developmental delay. It needs early intervention and treatment so that the child doesn’t suffer for prolonged time due his developmental disabilities.

Homeopathy has shown some great results in treatment of autism in children. Behaviour modification through homeopathic medicines is possible and this fact has been well-documented. Research studies have estimated that homeopathic medicines bring about a positive change for a wide range of symptoms in autistic children. They also help in reducing child's hyperactivity, irritability, or aggressive behavior if any.

Treating autism with homeopathy

Autistic children should ideally be treated with homeopathy primarily for below three reasons:

  • Conventional treatment, which usually comprises of psychiatric drugs, is meant to only calm the autistic child and not necessarily cure him/her
  • Autism is really a spectrum disorder. It is caused by a variety of neurological, or biochemical disorders. With specific homeopathic treatment, most cases could be effectively treated, although the degree of autism might not correspond with the degree of cure. This means some mild cases may experience only partial benefits whereas severe cases may benefit a lot from homeopathic treatment.
  • Homeopathy is also effective as an adjuvant treatment that works wonderfully well with other therapies like occupational and speech therapy that are widely used for autism treatment. Besides, the benefits of sensory integration therapy, which seeks to treat sensory issues in autistic kids, are amplified by the action of suitable homeopathic medicines.

Homeopathy works well to correct the autistic child's accentuated state of sensitivity. It helps to improve their fine motor skills as well as enhance their perceptual difficulties.
