In India, the rate of incidence of autism continues to rise at never seen before in history. Autism and Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis of conditions has increased almost 50-fold in the last 40 years. Autism results from a neurological condition that affects normal brain function. Affected areas of the brain are responsible for social interaction and aggression. Not all children with autism have aggression that manifests itself in violence, a significant percentage experienced the frustration that self-harm, mechanical ticks, and emotions are displayed and demonstrated in different ways. Genetic factors seem to be important. For example, more likely than fraternal twins, twins or siblings to both have autism. Similarly, language abnormalities are more common in relatives of autistic children. Chromosomal abnormalities and other nervous systems (neurological) problems are also more common in families with autism.
Ayurvedic practices in the management of various symptoms of this condition have become quite functional in support of autistic patients and have been demonstrated to be effective.
Ayurveda is a 5000-year-old treatment that is highly effective and is a cleansing and rejuvenation program. The aim of this process to encourage the layers of toxins from the body and to the places where they can be emitted to bring. Ayurveda usage is quite helpful and in a relatively short time, the person is likely to experience significant health improvements.
For your consideration, I created a draft of what I believe would be a recommended diet for an autistic child:
Your child may have special dietary requirements due to food sensitivity, allergies, swallowing issues, digestive problems, diabetes, or other contributing factors. Please consult your Ayurvedic Practioner or Vaidya for specific dietary requirements customized for your child.
In general, the recommended diet for Autistic children is gluten-free/casein-free (gluten is a mix of various proteins found in wheat flour, white flour, barley, rye; casein is found in dairy or lactose like cow’s milk, ice cream, cheese, etc.). Healthy soup made with green moong dal (green gram) or split yellow dal with organic fresh vegetables like carrots, celery, and onions; fresh fruits like apple, mango, gooseberry, pomegranate, melon, grapes, and pear; cooked vegetables (green beans, snow peas, carrots, yellow squash, zucchini, spinach); oils like extra virgin olive oil and organic butter or better yet, medicinal cow’s ghee. Gluten-free grains include amaranth, arrowroot, buckwheat, cassava, millet, quinoa, rice (basmati rice is a good choice), sorghum, and teff. Oatmeal may or may not be tolerated by sensitive individuals.
Foods to avoid include gluten, dairy, refined sugar, nightshade vegetables (white potatoes, tomatoes, bell peppers, red peppers, eggplant), sour fruits (oranges, grapefruit, lemon, lime); junk foods (chips, cookies, sweetened cereals), preservatives or additives, processed or frozen foods, fried, oily and spicy food, stale food, soft drinks, peanuts, tapioca, yogurt, cheese, desserts, caffeine (tea and coffee), and red meat.
