I read some article during a research for alternative treatment methods and became curious on the subject of Homeopathic treatment of autism. The subject was very interesting with a lot of case studies and feedback from parents who are using this alternative method. Does anyone have any input on this subject? Please kindly share you experiences on the Homeopathic and Biomedical… read more
I was just going to post the exact same article that crimsonwife did. I think that some biomed approaches may be safe and effective but please read that article before getting caught up in homeopathy. I had thought that homeopathy and natural remedies were basically the same thing but that article really outlines how very very different they are. I think homeopathy frankly is silly voodoo once you understand what it truly is it will blow your mind that it has so much seeming credibility.
I am a big fan of biomed in general but I am very skeptical of homeopathy in particular. Unlike many of the nutritional supplements, there is no legitimate scientific evidence to support homeopathy's effectiveness. http://www.quackwatch.org/01QuackeryRelatedTopi...
Oh. I forgot, we did B12 shots too. We saw some good improvements in his symptoms for about 6 months and then those improvements went away.
Remember every Autistic child is different. Our doctor was actually surprised because my son's test results are generally different than most on the spectrum. If you go the biomedical approach, it is best to find a doctor or naturopath who has been trained in DAN! protocols and continues to stay up on the latest developments. In addition, they should use tests to learn more about your child rather than treating blindly. in the
We go to a naturopath and have used homeopathic treatments for years. The vitamins and supplements have not made a significant difference in his Autistic symptoms but he's much healthier and more alert. Since the tests show that he is deficient in these, I believe he needs them just for his health. He's rarely sick now.
We did GFCF for a reasonable length but I quit because we saw no improvements and the tests showed he did not have intolerances.
We did NAET which made a major difference in eliminating his allergy symptoms but again no significant diffence in his Autims symptoms.
We did Neurotherapy which made a HUGE difference in his Autism symptoms including sleeping through the night, better attention, increased speech, and reduced mood swings.
We did chelation because the tests showed he had high levels of lead and arsenic (but not mercury) but again no improvements in his symptoms.
Hi, Currently we are seeing a medical doctor who uses homeopathy and orthomolecular treatments for autism. My son is 2.5 on the spectrum. I have seen significant improvements. He is gluten and cassein free - that helped with sleep and we are on homeopathic treatments giving him Omega supps, magnesium, Vit A, D, B2, liquid chloryphyll, digestive aid and probiotic. The OMEGA was amazing - in a span of a few weeks taking it - he went from no eye contact to looking at me, smiling, giggling and verbal. In 3 months no word to stringing 3 words together and constantly commenting on everything! Hope that helps...please feel free to ask me any questions you may have.
