Homeopathy for Autism & ADHD

Developmental disorders in children are increasing in their prevalence and also being recognized better. Their symptomatology, cause and treatment differ. Some of them require therapies, while some others require therapy with medication

Why Homeopathy?

Homeopathy does not involve chemical treatment and can be given for a long time without any side effects. In case of Autism, if a child is given proper Homeopathy, his awareness levels increase and that makes the ongoing therapies more effective thereby reducing the duration of therapy required.

Homeopathic remedies can influence them by having direct impact on nervous tissues. Each remedy influences them differently. For example: Baryta Carbonic has stimulating effect on sluggish brain on the other hand, Bufo Rana has calming effect. One can employ many Homeopathic remedies and bring about necessary changes to reconnect affected childs mind back to environment.

Role of Homeopathy

Homeopathy can play a complimentary role in treating this disorder. There are some Homeopathic remedies which can attend to the constitution of the child and there are remedies which can treat individual symptoms. Along with various therapies, giving Homeopathy to the child will definitely be useful, since attending to the constitution will bring about major changes.

These kids tend to have problems due to various levels of immune deficiencies, resulting in recurrent infections of respiratory system. Example: frequent cough & cold, glue ear etc. We can significantly improve the resistance by employing medicines like Tub Bo, C Nosode etc.

Often kids with ADHD / ADD have issues with bowel flora resulting in either constipation or diarrhoea. Homeopathy along with probiotics can significantly improve bowel health.

The other advantage of Homeopathic treatment is your child receives medicines which are completely safe as it does not have any toxic effect on body or on mind.
