Out of the known causes of Autism, that are-

-Mental trauma before or after birth.

-Over dominating parenting and verbal or physical abuse over the child.

- Toxic effects of heavy metal vapour inhalation.

- Genetic factors.

- Side Effects of immunisation.

You have to reflect and find out the most probable cause of autism of your child.

Things become simple if the cause is known.

Thank you so much for reply rishimba.
My son was diagnosed first in 2010 as autistic when he was only 2 yrs old.but his symptoms began started right after his MMR vaccine first dose in 2009 when he was 16 months old.he started getting respiratory infections mainly croup frequently and been treated for that by steroids orally and inhalation form.in few months he had 6 - 7 croup attacks.last word I remember was mama he said when he was in so much distress and gradually he last all his language,social skill and all developmental milestones those he get very early.after his diagnosis we searched on Internet and started doing something that we can do.he was very fat boy at that time he was 45lb ,craved for milk drinking gallons of milk a day and his diet was mainly junk and packaged food.we changed it stop feeding him milk started on rice milk but he did not like it so west oped all type of dairy.no sugar at all except honey and his GERD problem his weight problem got controlled.we did some biomedical approach but it made him so hyperactive so we left it after few months because we were not able to get any language.his pain threshold was very high like if my little nephew hits him or even drags him he stayed senseless.did not hit him back after diet he got back and started reacting.we did diet for a year.he still eats healthy diet less sugary,no packaged food we only go to McDonald's very really.diet is mainly home cooked stuff.meat vege and fruits and water no sugary juices.his wt is 56lbs,he is generally very strong and healthy looking boy but still anemic.we did homeopathy for few months and got good results but still no language we actually did CEASE Therapy in homeopathy by a doctor in Virginia.he used some regular homeopathic remedies such as belladonna ,stramonium,hyosyamous,cuprium metallicum etc.but all were in 200c potency.i noticed one thing when we were using CEASE he reacted very strongly to 30c potency of CEASE remedies.now his current symptoms list is
Biting,spitting all day and rubbing it over spits on anything like on carpet,floor,his iPad etc.pinching,not sitting for few seconds.drinking moderate amount of water and holds last sip of water in his mouth and sprinkle it all over the floor.flapping and clapping his hands and making sounds like wooooow with his mouth.he is doing all this to others he used to hit his head but not now a days he does it when really frustrated,don't like to stay inside the house feels happy when taken out in fresh air or parks.likes to play in mud or sand.likes squishy mad mushy things he used to mess up with his poop when not potty trained but now thanks God he is potty trained i put on pull-up only at night.like to eat chocolate only pure chocolate whether semisweet or sweet.he some times get constipated,now a days he has some trouble with his tummy when he wakes up he passes gas and strain a little bit.which he never had for long time.usually he has one bowel movement everyday.i feel like he has headaches some times his ears got red when he is in distress and cry and pinches other because he can not tell what's wrong with him.this can happen anytime.genrally in school he stayed happy they never complained of pinching or any other behavior other than spitting.his sleep is better now but sleeps very late at night usually at 11 or 12 o clock. But once asleep he stayed asleep. He used to wake up in between and cries and wants us to take him out of home in the middle of the night in between 2 or 3 o'clock .his family from father side has some behavior issues like ADHD but no one diagnosed or treated his father has mood swings or aggressive and frustrated easily and his grandfather also has symptoms like that other than this they have high blood sugar and blood pressure issues in his father side.his father side has another issue of thalassemia minor in which their red blood cell size is small and he is anemic too but he seems like a healthy and happy child.generally.whatever I wrote is in best of my knowledge.and if you need any more info please let me know I want to start him because I know only homeopathy can heal him.God bless all of u who read this and suggest me remedy.thanks again.

Reading your post I am lead to believe that your son's croup/respiratory symptoms were not treated properly but were suppressed with steroids. This could be the prime cause of his autism.

For the time being, let me go ahead with a treatment based on the above. If this doesn't produce results in all potencies, we will change the line of treatment and assume that the MMR vaccine could have been the trigger for his autism.

I will ask some more questions to confirm his constitution type:

1. Which part of his body sweats more? Can you describe the smell of his sweat?

2. Has he been always overweight right from the beginning?

3. What are his cravings in food presently?

4. Have you ever seen him eating or chewing chalk, coal or pensil ends?

4. Does he get tired soon after playing or running for a while?

5. What kind of physical ailments does he suffer from these days?

6. Does he prefer hot weather or cold weather? What kind of weather does he prefer?

7. Does he sleep well?

Thank you so much rishimba.i am going to answer your question.he does not sweat much now a days but before starting him on anything like diet or any other medication or even before we know that he is autistic,he sweat profusely from his head,he used to sweat usually at night or any time when he ai sleeping.after starting diet he stopped sweating in his head area.then after starting homeopathy he started sweating again and again in same area.he now a days sweats but in very hot weather and in his armpits and has normal stinky smell if not washed for that day and sweat amount is not enough to soak his shirt.
His birth wt was 6 lb and 4 ounes and was very weak.he through up his formula milk a lot .then his doctor changed his formula milk to soya lipil Enfamil.he got better on that.he had he had scalp dandruff problem from the very beginning of his life and been treated by steroid creams and now using ketoconazole shampoo.after one year on infant formula we switched to whole milk and then he started getting fat.he became overweight.we also noticed he got very bad diaper raises most of the times may be started when he was 9 months old and comes and goes till we stated diet.
His weight got controlled after diet and now he has normal wt.
He craves for sweet things specially chocolate and ice cream with strawberry or chocolate flavor.
He chews everything he gets from floor and chew into pieces and rub it over the floor including hard shells of pistachio,crayons,pencil,eraser etc any thing that can be chewed.but I never saw him chewing things like chalk or coal but he did chew pencils but not for to eat them just chew them and through them on floor and play with them.
He does not get tired soon.
He does not have any physical ailment any time.he looks very healthy and does not have any physical problem.
He does not have any preference I think but likes to play outside in open air in park or enjoy swimming and he also enjoys air when it is blowing and touching his face he really wants to feel it and enjoys it so I think he stays more comfortable and playful in hot weather than cold.
He sleeps late at night like after 12 o'clock but once asleep he sleep through all night and I have to wake him up for school at 7:30 am.but for the last 3 to 4 days he is having some gas problem so today he wake up before his time he is passing a lot of gas and not able to empty his bowel completely so he is not able to get good sleep.he has been treated for his sleep problem by kali phos homeopathic remedy.and also used saccharum officinale 6x for his stomach problem .
I hope these info will help you find a good and effective remedy for my son.hope to hear from you soon and God bless you for your kindness.

With love and respect.
eshal1234 8 years ago
Dear eshal1234, Since you have shown some trust on me as a homeopathic physician for your child, I would request you to keep this trust during the whole treatment process. Do not get affected by other prescriptions in the middle of the treatment that could wash away all efforts of mine.

Let me also tell you, I will work on this case to the best of my abilities and we both should not leave a stone unturned.

As I said, we will try out the first remedy in all potencies and only then go to the next prescription, if required.

The first prescription is CALC CARB 30C two doses, each 30 minutes apart. Wake him up one morning and give him one dose. Put him to sleep back and then after about 30 minutes, give him another dose. Do not allow him to get up from bed for the next 2 hours.

Buy CALC CARB 30C from two different pharmacies and two different brands if possible, just to increase chances of using a good stuff. Go for good brands like Boiron, Helios or Reckeweg.

One dose would be typically 3 drops of remedy in some 10 ml of water.

Give him simple food, no sweets, no coffee, no excess salt and no peppermint etc.

Watch him for next 10 days and if you see absolutely no response, you should go for CALC CARB 200C exactly in the same way. Similarly, we can go higher another step if 200C doesn't work.

Keep me updated every 7 days.

Best wishes.

We live in New York USA.i have not found any local homeopathic pharmacy here.
eshal1234 8 years ago
Or can we give him in pellet form if so then what is the dose in pellet form.he can take remedy in pallet form and I think I can easily put remedy in his mouth without waking him up because once he is awake he will not stay in the bed.please help me and let me know what is best for him.
eshal1234 8 years ago
Yes, you can give 2 pellets into his mouth as one dose.

He mostly gets frustrated when not able to tell us what he want to eat.before he gets angry and bites and pinches without any reason.and had headaches frequently and not even able to tell us he has headache we understand it by his behavior and his red ears his ears becomes red when he has something going on in his body specially in his head.i have not noticed red ears since remedy use.he still spits that is his main problem,still goes to bathroom and takes off his pant even he does not need to pee.much calmer than before sits for long time on sofa to watch his favorite nursery rhymes,still repeatedly listening any one part of the nursery rhyme or music in that.still not willing to eat different varieties of food but much better than before eats well not very less or more.he has his preference in sweets for example he eats chocolate or any chocolate flavor cup cakes or muffins.does not like dried textured cake,he likes moist brownies or cakes with rich chocolate flavor.does not eat home made custards or kheer.his bowel movements are much or less better,less gas in lower part of his gut that bothered him and he used to pass a lot of gas before remedy use.these are the positive changes I have observed so far.today was 6th day after remedy.i am waiting for your response what should be the next step.
eshal1234 7 years ago
eshal1234, I am doing very well today..Thank you!

There is nothing more joyful and satisfying for a physician than knowing about his patient's health improvements!

Now that you know the remedy of your child, you need to take care of him till he completely gets well. You know that 30C is creating a good response in him, so don't change the potency till he is responding to this potency. Keep giving him this potency exactly in the same way, whenever you see his conditions entering a plateau or going down-slope.

Repetition of the dose may be after 15 days or 20 days or even more. There is no thumb rule for repetition. All depends on his condition and symptoms. As a mother, you will be the best person to know when he will need the next dose.

Once the potency is fully exhausted and ceases to create a response in him, you should go for 200C potency in exactly the same manner...and so on.

Just keep me informed once a month.

Take over!

HelloDr Rhishimba,I forgot to tell you that we gave him calc carb 30C on Thursday morning and we were in other state to visit his grandparents it is more than 10 hrs drive from our home.on Saturday when we left from there on our way he got some throat irritation and at night when we reach home he slept and during sleep he got croup again but at that time I did not gave him anything and in next morning I gave him some herbal tea with mulath and gul banafsha in it.croup and husky voice got better with that and he had fever(low grade mildly warm) with that and I gave him syp Advil and got better but now he has cough on and off.this morning he was coughing but not very frequently but when he came back from school at 4pm he was warm to touch and coughing continuely.cough is dry,nose is also stuffy but not running,chest is clear it is just dry cough which is bothering him a lot today.i wounded if it is his remedys effect or just seasonal because weather is not very cold and I am giving him high doses of vitamin c continuely.if it is seasonal then is there any other remedy we can use for his dry cough,and what would be the dose?
eshal1234 7 years ago
It is a very good sign. Old ailments that had been suppressed are now coming back.

Remember I told you this autism has been caused by suppression of croup by steroids.

Please don't give any allopathic medicines. This croup will go off and the child will fully get cured.

Coming back of old symptoms is indeed a sign of complete cure.

Thank you so much Dr Rishimba,I will take care that next time for not using any allopathic medicine.i will watch for any other changes in him and update you.Thank you again.
eshal1234 7 years ago
Dear dr Rishimba,I am planning to give him second dose of his Cal Carb 30C this morning,it is 5:30am here,but he sounds like croupy when he taken a deep breath.please guide me because I have two questions.
First is can I give him second dose now while his some of pinching and biting behave and hyperactive behavior came back last night and now he is breathing like croupy?
Second question is what should we do if his croup is very severe because sometimes his croup is so severe that he can not breath and it is life threatening,is there any other remedy we should use because it is so distressing that we have to give him breathing treatment with epinephrine.
Please guide me because today is Sunday and I can give him remedy only on weekends because of school timings.
eshal1234 7 years ago
You can give him CALC CARB 30C repeatedly if his croup symptoms become severe.

As long as his croup is not getting suppressed by steroids again, he will be fine.

I have already told you that 30c potency can be given repeatedly. For severe croup, you can give it thrice a day for some 2 to 3 days as well.

Just see that you don't go back to steroids.

Hello Dr Rishimba,thanks for quick reply.We are doing Autism journey for the last 4 yrs since my son is diagnosed,we are just waiting for his single word.last word I heard from him was MAMA when he was in so much pain and distress.we can understand homeopathy is the only way that can heal him naturally and deeply.we also know that now we know his remedy I have one more question for you is there any other remedy that can help him develop his language because he is nonverbal.We also heard about Bach flower remedies can we start them along with this remedy?
With love and respect.
eshal1234 7 years ago
Dear eshal1234, I am a follower of classical homeopathy and I don't really know how bach flower remedies would interact with calc carb in this case. Also, I am no expert on bach flower techniques.

Its better if you take advice from someone who knows better.

If the highest potencies of calc carb do not bring him back to normal, then i will suggest another remedy based on his presenting symptoms. Calc carb is suggested based on the assumption that his mental symptoms were due to suppression of croup by steroids.

As for now, you please follow the calc carb route going a step higher everytime the potency exhausts.

I hope his improvement will be seen once he recovers from croup. He is following the Hering's Law of cure. So, I am pretty hopeful he will be normal again.
