Every person with autism is different. All will have problems with communication and social skills but not in the same way. Autism is a spectrum disorder because it can cause mild problems, severe problems, or something in between. Autism’s most-obvious signs tend to appear between 2 and 3 years of age. In some cases, it can be diagnosed as early as 18 months. Some developmental delays associated with autism can be identified and addressed even earlier. Autism Speaks urges parents with concerns to seek evaluation without delay, as early intervention can improve outcomes. Best autism homeopathic doctor, clinic, treatment & remedies in Sunnyvale & Fremont, CA.

Introduction to Autism

Autism is a developmental neurological disorder that is characterized by:

Autistic children do not follow a typical pattern of normal development, some of the milestones are delayed or they develop very late. In some children, the problems are more noticeable when the child lacks other children of same age. Some children start off very well, but between 18-36 months of age, they suddenly stop talking, communicating, act strangely and reject people.

Homeopathic Treatment for Autism

Homeopathic treatment for Autism offers a strategically planned approach that incorporates medicines in addition to Behavioural therapy, Communication therapy, and diet modification. It must be remembered that all these go hand in hand in helping an autistic child. The Homeopathic approach to treating Autistic disorder is holistic in nature i.e. all cases of Autism are treated based on individual presentation. The remedy thus selected is called ‘Constitutional remedy‘ and it helps in treating Autism with good results.

With continued treatment over a period of time, there is a gradual improvement seen in the patient’s behavior- the children show improved social interaction, their verbal and non-verbal communication also improves over a period of time and repetitive behavior reduces slowly. Overall, good changes can be seen in children who are given proper treatment with Homeopathy for Autism as compared to those who are not given any therapy.
