Autism Spectrum Disorder
Autism spectrum disorder is an inability starting from childhood to socially interact, communicate, learn or talk in a way that is normal. Including a wide spectrum, two autism patients may show different symptoms, hence the name autism spectrum disorder.
According to the survey of Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) Survey of Disability, Ageing and Carers (SDAC) in 2015 nearly 164,000 Australians had autism. This disorder is more common in boys than in girls.
Autism is not an illness or disease that has a complete cure. But, yes it requires management. Above all a friendly support from friends, family and physician help them to show progressive improvements and in turn makes their life easier.
Causes of Autism
Earlier it was believed that autism is caused due to mammography vaccines or a stressful environment affecting the psychology of a child. But now an increasing number of researchers are pointing to its prime cause to be genetic and environmental in origin.
Some of the common causes of this disorder are
- Irregularity in brain development during pregnancy

The symptoms are well visible below the age of 5 years and are the best times when the homeopathic therapy can help sustain the symptoms. We would recommend you to consult an experienced homeopath during this period, the prescription can prove to be the most fruitful.
Though, it is always wise to consult a homeopath’s advice at other ages as well if symptoms show up so your health is not further compromised.
It is known that certain adults may also have some level of autism but remain unaware of this fact and undiagnosed for a long time.
Autism and Homeopathy
Conventional treatments try to suppress the symptoms or fill up the deficiencies either by prescribing supplements, high dose medicines or sleeping pills.
They are not designed to activate the body’s inner abilities. Instead, a dependency loop is created whereby a complete cure is not guaranteed.
As a side effect these treatments in turn while treating the symptoms damage other cells, tissues or organs adding to more illnesses or side effects.
