Homeopathic Treatment of Autism, Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder ADHD, ASD: Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to cure Autism? What is the treatment duration for autistic children?
This is a very valid question and often among the first few questions that parents of autistic children ask.
The honest answer is that Doctors do not know for sure. It is not only for Autism but also for all other chronic dieases like asthma, allergies, psoriasis, arthritis, hypothyroidism, eczema etc). The treatment duration varies from individual to individual. It can be 1-3 years for a mild autism case and 5-10 years for a severe autistic case.
And ‘cure’ is not always possible. Cure means the child becomes absolutely normal. For mild autism cases homeopathic cure is possible in many cases if the homeopathic treatment starts early enough. For moderate to severe autism cases, we are usually looking at the graded improvement over a period of time. The improvement can start from anywhere but usually, we see that the classic signs like hand flapping, toe walking reduce first and eye contact improves marginally. Then we see improvement in understanding, comprehension, command following, speech, sensory issues, social acceptance and further eye contact. Some children improve on one variable first, other’s improve on other variables. Some children start responding within the first few weeks, others take a few months to show improvement.
If your child has recently been diagnosed with Autism, please understand that there are no ‘magic cures’ for autism. It is going to take a lot of effort and time for your child to improve. You will need the support of therapies like occupation therapy, ABA, speech therapy along with homeopathy.
Don’t be disheartened. Many children recover completely. Most mild to moderate cases are able to lead an independent life as adults. Prepare yourself mentally for a long journey ahead.
Why is my child Autisitic?
There may be many reasons for it but usual those are not which generally told or parent understand. So there is no use of thinking or asking ‘why me?’, ‘why my child?’ It’s a futile question and it’s not just your child. Today one in eighty children are suffering from autism.
Have your treated autism patients before? Can you share the contact details of some patients so that we can verify?
Yes, I have been treating autistic children with homeopathy since many years. Also got an opportunity to learn from the working of centres for special needs children in UK and Europe.
Unfortunately No. Patient privacy laws, legally bar us from sharing the disease diagnosis or contact details of any patient with anyone.
If needed, you may go through the feedback or reviews about me and my work on google, facebook page or website.
Does homeopathy have any curative treatment for Borderline or mild autism?
Clinically mild autism relates to the cases which do not have any mental retardation or significant hyperactivity associated with it. Cases of mild autism can show some delayed milestones, poor eye contact and social contact. However, there comprehension and command-following is close to normal. Homeopathy does offer treatment for autism and homeopathy does give the best results in cases of mild autism. The more significant is autism, the poorer is the prognosis.
Homeopathy for autism is beneficial if classical homeopathic prescribing process if used. This is the standard homeopathic treatment based on cause and symptom similarity. Please consult a classical homeopath for treatment with homeopathy for mild autism
Is there any Homeopathic Medicine for autism?
Homeopathy is a holistic system of medicine. It means that it does not treat diseases, including autism, by its name. While the name is important for diagnosis, prognosis and management, the homeopathic medicine for autism is selected on the basis of cause, presenting symptoms and family history.
To find the most suitable homeopathic medicine for autism for a particular case, you will need to consult a professional classical homeopath who will take the complete medical history (homeopathic case-taking) and will then prescribe a homeopathic medicine that appears suitable for a particular case of autism in a particular situation.
Can you tell me more about use and effectiveness of carcinocinum / Medorrihnum / Tubercullinum / Bofu / ETC remedy for autism treatment?
Carcinocinum or all other medicines are absolutely safe to take in homeopathic doses if agrees with the symptoms of patient. These are available in many potencies. Homeopathic medicines are prescribed on the basis of symptom similarity. Carcinosinum is often more commonly indicated in cases where there is some family history of cancer. But that is not a limiting factor.
