5 Natural Ways Of Treating Autism
Make sure your child eats healthy food. Go for organic fruits and vegetables and whole grains. No trans-fat, no pesticides and no chemicals at all. Canned food, processed food and junk food are a strict no.
This is expensive and difficult as these days it is easier to find junk food than fresh and pure vegetables or whole food. Even if you find organic food, chances are that they are not 100% pure. Organic fish, eggs, chicken, green vegetables, whole grains, herbs should constitute your child’s diet.
Heal Your Child’s Gut
Check what your child is allergic to especially food items and remove them from his/her diet. Gluten is a known culprit though there are many others. Overgrowth of yeasts should be stopped by the usage of anti-fungal supplements. Unhealthy gut is responsible for leaky gut, eczema, candida etc. Add probiotics to the diet so that there are sufficient digestive enzymes and different types of healthy bacteria present to help in proper digestion.
Building up toxic wastes in our body is always a reason of falling sick. Consult your doctor and give your child a heavy metal detox supplement. Make your child drink minimum 8-10 glasses of unfluoridated and clean water and use flax seeds to keep the bowel movement proper.
Massaging helps in keeping the nervous system calm. For sweating you can also go for a sauna, detox bath or steam along with exercises. Sweating three times a day profusely is important.
Animal Assisted Therapy
Autistic children are made to interact with animals under supervision. This therapy is known to have shown positive results. The children develop some kinds of bonding with these animals which thereafter help them in bonding with humans as well.
Their social behavior, playing pattern with peers, focus, awareness, language, social interaction, development of emotions and motivation, all have shown significant improvement. Though this can be a bit expensive, this therapy is sensible and very useful and has proved itself in many cases.
A lot of investigations have confirmed music to have a positive effect on the brains of the autistic children. Autistic kids enjoy being part of activities that are music based. Music based interactions are also beneficial to them. MRI scans have revealed that autistic brains can process music and help develop their emotions.
