Role of Homeopathy in Autism:

The major areas of concern of most of the parents of Autistic children who come to us are poor cognitive skills, Obsessive compulsive behavior, violence, temper tantrums, hyperactivity, and attention deficit.

Our aim in cases of autistic children is to reduce the hyperactivity, increase the attention span and reduce the sensory issues. In certain cases the children have shown tremendous improvement and potential. Also along with homeopathic medicines counseling of the parent and to observe the special skill in the child is very important.

Homeopathic remedies bring about a healthy change by stimulating the internal healing mechanism of the body. It also corrects the imbalance and helps in reduction of hyperactivity, increasing the cognitive skills, eye contact, and overall improvement in the individual.
