Ayurveda Treatment for Autism

Why Ayurveda fits well into the management of autism?


11 1

Ayurveda treatment for autism is a holistic and individualized approach that focuses on treating the whole person, rather than just the symptoms of the condition. As we know, biology is the science of exceptions, unlike physics or mathematics. No living organisms are one and the same.

The human body is nonlinear, as various functions happening cannot be equated by a simple mathematic equation like 1+1=2. Autism is nonlinear, as the various symptoms present in ASD like behavioural issues, sensory issues etc. cannot be predicted or it cannot be simply equated as 1+1=2. Ayurveda understands humans as individual whole beings despite similar anatomy and physiology. It emphasizes more on a customized approach than a specific medicine for Autism. Hence Ayurveda is the best alternative system of medicine to addresses ASD.

Ayurveda is the age-old Indian system of traditional medicine still practised successfully. It is known as the science of life as it is not a mere explanation of diseases & medicines but a compilation of preventive measures & healthy living standards for everyone. It has a vast history of generations and it is developed as a system based on the culture and civilization of India. Ayurveda does not need any foreign or imported drugs or devices for curing a disease but only ethnic resources.

Ayurveda empowers the physician with the skill to revitalize the people by bringing back harmony with nature and culture in a proper way. Ayurveda sees a person as a whole being rather than a part of the site affected. For an Ayurveda clinician, the human body is beyond a group of cells, organs or organ systems. It considers a sum total of the body and the life force in it together rather than a muscle mass with a skeleton inside.

Ayurveda treats a person, not only his disease by helping him come back to a normal balanced state of body and mind. In such a way, treatment or management of a condition includes the assessment of many factors like the origin of the disease, the causative factors, the season, the body constitution, the time and place of occurrence, the physical and mental strength of the person, the environment etc. along with the routine clinical examination of the patient.

Ayurveda has a scientific protocol to do all the detailing about this assessment and examination of disease and patient. Coming to Autism, this method is very important as every detail in this can help a lot in treatment and outcome.

Ayurveda Wisdom And Autism


Jeevaniyam Ayurveda is one of the best ayurveda treatment centres for autism. Ayurveda treatment for autism is a holistic and individualized approach that focuses on treating the whole person, rather than just the symptoms of the condition. We follow this Ayurveda theorems as an underlying principle through Agasthya protocol while addressing autism. Ayurveda advises us to address and manage autism at three levels:

  1. At the level of the body, or the physic 
  2. At the level of the mind or the psyche 
  3. At the level of consciousness or the energy level.

The strategy of therapies is planned after such a detailed and scientific assessment, emphasizing the dosha and dooshya concepts. Doshas are the variable functioning units in the body that balance together for health and whose imbalance leads to disease. Dooshyas are the bodily tissues and metabolites getting affected by the imbalance in Doshas, eventually manifesting as a disease.

Ayurveda gives prime importance to digestion and absorption also. Agni or digestive fire is to be maintained in a normal condition for health and all the diseases are said to be developed as a result of derangement in Agni (digestion). Aama is a term used in Ayurveda to denote the undigested or partially digested metabolic waste products in the gastro intestinal tract(koshta). It is explained that presence of such Aama can turn into toxic products and it is the root cause of all diseases either in an acute or chronic way. The biomarkers like serum amylase, serum lactate, amylase and pyruvate in ASD can be correlated to aama.

This can happen at various levels like in the gastrointestinal tract (koshtagatha aama) and cellular level (dhaatugata aama). So, the main aim of Ayurveda treatment of Autism is to remove and correct such toxic metabolic waste products in both these levels. We are also familiar with the conditions of deranged metabolism observed in autism.

In ASD, the deranged circulation of metabolites is also causing physical or behavioural problems. It can happen either in acute form or a chronic way. Ayurveda coined the term Srotas to denote the biological channels or pathways that circulate bodily materials. While treating ASD, along with Agni, factors like Dosha, Dooshya, Aama and srotas are also considered. Ayurveda suggests Aama chikithsa to remove the toxic metabolites from the body by detoxification procedures and medicines.

Properly administered metabolic correction procedures along with dietary interventions and lifestyle management help well in autistic management. Various endogenous and exogeneous toxins get reduced in the whole body and it can be evident from the serological assessment of biomarkers. Along with internal medication, customized application of procedure-based therapies are also carried out.
