Autism is a complex neurodevelopmental disorder which has multiple symptoms. Common symptoms of Autism are hyperactivity, speech delay, repetition, obsessive compulsive behavior etc. besides this the child also faces symptoms like severe constipation, oral sensitivity due to which the child takes only selected food.
In the above case which came to us through our website drjoshis.com, the child was diagnosed with moderate to severe Autism. One of the major challenges the child was facing was severe constipation. The child was on laxatives and prune juice on a daily basis for months together, even after this the child had difficulty in passing stools. On certain days the child was given enema to clear the bowels.
In this case we will see how Homeopathic medicines can play a major role in relieving the child not only from constipation but also gradual improvement was seen all the areas.
As this was the long distance case it was studied via our online treatment protocol. After the case details sent by the parents and our observation of the child via video conferencing a detailed analysis and evaluation was done.
On our observation the child was lost in her own world and wouldn’t respond to her name and even after calling 10 times she did not look up once. She showed extreme irritability with crying without reason. In spite of the cold weather the child did not want to wear a sweater or warm clothes. The speech of the child was not developed. The child was extremely hyperactive and constantly flapping her hands.
We also took mother history during pregnancy and her mental state during pregnancy. It was a normal and a happy pregnancy without any complications.
Based on the above symptoms we selected the constitutional medicine and a set of other homeopathic medicines which will be needed in the course of the treatment. This constitutional medicine and the Homeopathic kit was shipped to the parents. After the parents received the medicines, the child was given constitutional medicine and was asked to report after 14 days.
On the 1st follow up after 14 days we got a pleasant surprise that the child had no problems passing the stool. So the parents reduced the laxative and was put on prune juice for few days. Also after stopping the prune juice the child had no difficulty in passing motions. This was the major change observed during the 1st follow up.
2nd follow up after 1 month, the improvement in the constipation was maintained and the child is completely off all the laxatives. Now the child is giving fleeting eye contact and sometimes responds to the name, irritability is also considerably better. child is sleeping well.
Consistent gradual improvement is seen in the child on each follow up. The child is still under our treatment.
Constipation is not a easy condition to treat, but with the right homeopathic treatment we can relieve the patient from the sufferings. In certain cases improvement may take more time as each individual is different and the respond to the treatment differently. Homeopathy is a very safe and effective mode of treatment and it is the 2nd largest medical science as per the World Health Organization
