Importance of autism awareness, diagnosis and treatment

From the moment you are born, your achievements, no matter how minuscule, are being monitored by your parents and those relatives you aren’t particularly fond of. Your every milestone, both physical and mental, is matched with the standards set by society. Anything that does not align with said standards is considered “not normal”. People are always eager to point it out in any kid which sends the parents into “panic mode”. It is downright absurd how this community functions. Let us break down a certain condition associated with this absurdity– Autism spectrum disorder.

Let us dive right into it

Autism spectrum disorder is a medical condition which might indicate that a person’s brain development is not at the rate at which it should be. It is quite tough to segregate various signs and put them under the category of autism. However, the more you do research, the more you understand that certain autism symptoms from certain areas are specifically looked for in a child apparently suffering from the condition. These include:

  • Problems with socialization
  • Problems with communication
  • Repetitive or inflexible behaviours

These traits start before the kid turns 3. When it comes to social interactions, the child might have difficulty using non-speech behaviours such as maintaining eye-contact or not being sure what to do when someone waves and failing to establish peer relationships. When it comes to the communication area, the kid may have a delay in, or lack of, spoken language or difficulty in continuing a conversation or even repeating the same thing over and over again. And finally, with respect to repetitive or inflexible behaviour, the child may insist that certain things be done in the same manner as before. Autism diagnosis is done based on the definite findings of some or all of the above-mentioned symptoms.

The concept of autism spectrum disorder is pretty vague. People have many misconceptions related to the condition and parents of victims must be highly educated in this regard. Parents need to attend awareness programs, consult doctors and subject matter experts, go for seminars, and take part in various discussions in order to fully understand what is going on. Half-knowledge is more dangerous than no-knowledge. Remember to keep no stone unturned; after all, your child’s life is at stake.

Homeopathy and other treatment methods

Autism treatment methods mainly include training classes, psychotherapy sessions, and interventions, just to name a few. These can be very effective in most cases but could potentially present some risk as well. Because these methods act as social programming techniques, any situation in real-life that is out of the scope of the training or “out of syllabus”, so to speak, may be perilous for the child because he would not know how to react in that particular moment. You might want to look for other alternatives with minimal risk factor and that’s where homeopathy steps in.

Homeopathy healthily deals with autism. This is the human brain we are talking about and each case needs to be treated differently. There is no generic medicine here. Autism treatment in homeopathy tends to prescribe remedies based on the individual’s psychological and genetic history. A tailor-made prescription is being given to the patient in tandem with other treatment methods. This ensures the progress of the kid’s brain is being achieved at the right speed.

Bottom line

It is conclusively proven that opting for a homeopathic medicine for autism is going to be your best bet. It is obvious that seeing your kid not catching up to the peers is disheartening but you need to be strong. Your kid draws courage from you and he needs all the support one can get. Be patient, this condition cannot be treated overnight and do not let your kid feel like he is left out. Consult a homeopathy doctor as early as possible and stay in this together.
