autism & homoeopathic treatmentAUTISM & HOMOEOPATHY :
Autism and Homeopathy Autism is a childhood disorder begins in early childhood (typically during the first three years of life) which affects the childs communication skills, social interactions, and causes restricted, repetitive and stereotyped patterns of behavior in varying degrees. Autism (also called as autism spectrum disorder or pervasive developmental disorder) can range from severe to a very milder form The cause of autism are complex and it is unlikely that there is a single cause, but rather a set of triggers involving biological/medical, psychological and behavioral factors. There appears to be a genetic link.
Homoeopathy The selection of remedy is based upon the theory of individualization and symptoms similarity by using holistic approach. This is the only way through which a state of complete health can be regained by removing all the sign and symptoms from which the patient is suffering. The aim of homeopathy is not only to treat autism spectrum disorder but to address its underlying cause and individual susceptibility.
The founder of the homeopathic system of medicine Samuel Hahnemann states the philosophy on which the homeopathic treatment is based clearly in his book .The Organon of medicine in aphorism 211: the state of the disposition of the patient often chiefly determines the selection of the homeopathic remedy ;as being a decidedly characteristic symptom which can least of all remain concealed from the accurately observing physician.

The role of carcinocin in treating autism requires a special mention. Carcinosinum people often have a history of taking on too much at a young age, having too many expectations placed on them, too strict parental control. There is a need to be something that is almost beyond one's capacity. They set for themselves high standards or goals that are near impossible to achieve and drive themselves to try and accomplish them. In that sense, they reach out for perfection, and almost finish themselves in doing so.
Helium : Autism is a very appropriate word for Helium. They don't feel like entering this world. They prefer to stay in themselves to experience their own being. They are not interested in finding out about values and meaning in life.
They don't feel any affinity with those matters, they simply live. They have gone through the process of incarnation, they accept they are here and they don't doubt that fact. But they don't want to be involved in the why and wherefores of their existence. Their behaviour makes is very difficult to understand for other people. You can't get a grip on them, as if they are slipping away through your fingers each time you try and establish contact. This can be seen in autistic children. they won't let you come near. You can do what you like with them, they simply won't react. They remain locked up inside themselves, unapproachable and distant.
Hydrogen : - These people can experience the world as one total unity. Or they may have a strong desire to experience the world as such. Just like a foetus that experiences the world as a whole, there are no divisions and distinctions yet. They are one with the world and with all living beings. This feeling is expressed as a great love for everything and everybody. They may also have a feeling of being able to merge with others. They can be quite erotic, or they may live in real symbiotic style with another being.

Many Autistic kids, esp. high functioning ones are very fastidious, many suffer from fatigue with mundane activities & so get distracted & stop paying attention. This may include school going kids & adults as well & are often mistaken as having ADHD (2/3 of all ADHD patients are found to actually have Asperger's upon further evaluation). They show symptoms of Arsenicum album.
Calcarea Arsenicosa / Baryta Arsenicosa must be kept in mind. Also Calcarea Phos gives good results in those whose symptoms match the remedy.
Various Calcarea & Baryta salts hold great promise for people on the Autism spectrum. Calcarea is underrated, often works where Baryta fails to provide relief & gives great results. Strontium is also on the same row of periodic table. A more mature old soul might need heavier elements like Baryta while ones that haven't incarnated as many times / are less mature may need Strontium / Calcium. Strontium also helps with poor memory which is an important feature for many people on the spectrum. Please check the periodic table.
