My 3.5 years old mild autistic son is nonverbal. The doctor has given Risperidone (Sizodon) and some vitamin supplements for the last six months. My son is under speech therapy also. As all the allopathy medicine has side effects, is there any safe and assured ayurveda treatment for this condition? To what extent can my son get improved? What is the probable time frame? My son is hyperactive. He cannot focus as there is some sensory issue. He avoids the unknown person, especially same aged children. He is very selective in food and does not chew a few foods. He does not like almost any fruit. His MRI, USG, ECG, allergy panel and blood count were normal. He was vitamin D deficient.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I just read your query.
As you have mentioned about autism, autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder. People start noticing the symptoms in their children during 2 to 3 years of their age.
It might be due to some genetic problem, environmental issue, some infection during pregnancy like Rubella and sometimes no known reason can be ruled out with this problem.
The other symptoms you have mentioned like hyperactivity, lack of focus and difficulty in interaction with other people are all associated with the same problem. The reason behind all this is that your son's neurological and behavioral development is not normal.
Sometimes this problem improves up to a large extent with the help of medicine and other therapies. Sometimes, it can be there as such during a lifetime. No doctor or medicine can assure you about the exact time and the exact progress. But that does not mean you stop trying.
Now coming to ayurveda medicine, there are prescribed many medicines in ayurveda which will help your baby up to a great extent.
