In Autism, the development of the social and communication skills of the brain doesn’t develop normally. Alteration in the chemical and biological components of the brain are the basis for this lack of developmental skills.  Chances of developing Autism can be also due to genetic predisposition. Also, families that have people suffering from Autism will see neurological and other genetic problems in children. In Autism, the difficulty is observed in verbal and non-verbal communication of children. Also affected are their social interactions, leisure time and physical/group activities.

The incidence of Autism is spreading at alarming per cents per annum. Its prevalence in boys is four times that of girls. Autism isn’t restricted to any particular race, religion or place of origin of people. Neither does a financial or educational background affect the chances of being autistic. Therefore, it is important to be aware of signs and symptoms of autism in the early stages of a child’s development. The sooner the parent acts on it, the better the chances of early development.

Following are the signs and symptoms of Arthritis that will require Ayurvedic treatment for Autism:-

  • Reduced sounds, words, and gestures, in verbal communication
  • Non-typical behavior with toys
  • Inability to respond, and share information with others
  • Inability to initiate communication with others

Ayurveda also takes into account the chances of Autism being caused by pathogens. A pathogen can affect the gastrointestinal functions in a child. At such a young age, this infestation can give rise to endotoxins in the child’s body. This can lead to a microbial infestation in the body. Once the microbial infestation reaches the brain, it can disrupt the brain functions by attacking nerve cells. This can lead to a worsening of the developmental skills of the child.

According to Ayurveda, it is the Vata dosha that is responsible for anxiety, aggression, and organization. Therefore, addressing it early in the morning with an oil massage can have immense health benefits (both physical and mental in the case of Autism). It is a very effective way to calm a restless child.
