Understanding Ayurvedic Therapies for Autism


Understanding Ayurvedic Therapies for Autism


Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a genetically influenced neurodevelopmental condition characterized by distinct behavioral patterns and challenges in social communication. Alongside these core features, individuals with ASD may face a higher risk of gastrointestinal (GI) issues, including constipation, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. Recent studies highlight the potential interplay between ASD and GI disorders, suggesting shared pathogenic factors such as intestinal inflammation, food allergies, and dysregulation of the gut microbiome. Ayurveda recognizes the intricate connection between the gut and neurobehavioral science. In Ayurveda, the approach to treating any ailment, including autism, involves fostering a healthy gut and addressing the toxins in the body. The prevalence of endogenous issues in children with autism underscores the importance of targeting the gut for comprehensive therapeutic interventions. This connection gives rise to an “overlap syndrome,” presenting as a comorbidity of ASD and GI disorders. Recognizing and addressing this overlap can lead to earlier identification and intervention, offering relief from both GI and ASD symptoms. A personalized approach is crucial, and through maintaining a good biological rhythm we can manage ASD.
