Autism is a disorder in which children have impaired or poor communication and social skills. It usually becomes apparent within first three years of life but some mild cases get diagnosed during early schooling.
It is a disorder of neural development characterized by impaired social interaction and verbal and non-verbal communication, and by restricted or repetitive behavior. But many parents feel that their kids start showing autistic traits suddenly after a period of normal development.
Autism affects information processing in the brain by altering nerve cells and their synapse connect and organize, how this occurs is not well understood.
Autism is a highly variable neurodevelopment that first appears during infancy or childhood, and generally follows a steady course without remission.
Overt symptoms gradually begin after the age of six months, become established by age two or three years and tend to continue through adulthood, although often in more muted form.
It is distinguished not by a single symptom, but by a characteristic triad of symptoms: impairments in social interaction; impairments in communication; and restricted interests and repetitive behavior. Other aspects, such as atypical eating, are also common but are not essential for diagnosis.
Autism's individual symptoms occur in the general population and appear not to associate highly, without a sharp line separating pathologically severe from common traits.
In ayurvedic view this disease is caused due to the qualitative depletion of dhatus which manly influence udana vata.
Ayurveda believes that the diseases occur due to genetic tendencies, injuries during birth and due to some complications during pregnancy.
Treatment modulation in Ayurveda for autism can be applied in two ways:-
The body is massaged with warm, herbalized oils by one or more therapists working in perfect unison. This promotes deep relaxation and gently stimulates the marma points leading to a state of mental balance and heightened awareness. This is the renowned "oil massage" of Ayurveda.
An herbalized steam treatment promotes perspiration and elimination of toxins from the fatty tissues and nerves via the sweat glands. This treatment also optimizes the circulation and dissolves impurities.
A continuous stream of warm, herbal oil flows from an overhead vessel through a small aperture onto the forehead. This treatment is said to purify the mind-body, and profoundly relax the nervous system.
A general term for therapies in which herbal pastes (or muds) are applied to all parts of the body. Patients are wrapped in warm blankets and the paste removed when dry.
