What Can Naturopathy Do for Autism Spectrum Disorder in Children?

by Autism Singapore Asia's First Naturopathic Clinic

ASD or Autistic spectrum disorder is a disorder rooted in the central nervous system. Autism is one of the types of ASD that shows in early childhood as form of delayed speech in children around 18 months of age. It is a disorder that can exist at birth and can be diagnosed by the age of 3 years in children. Autism Singapore data says that 1 in 150 children have autism in Singapore. Boys are 4 times more likely to develop autism than girls.

If your child has been diagnosed with autism or any other forms of ASD then one way to navigate through can be naturopathy. Naturopathy is an unconventional Autism spectrum disorder treatment, and it is not specifically a treatment but instead an approach to navigate the condition smoothly.

What is naturopathy and how can it help with autism in children?

Naturopathy is ‘’Tolle Causam’’ which means treat the cause.  Autism can be tackled from this approach of treating the cause instead of symptoms. Many naturopathic doctors start with identifying the potential causes which can then commence the process of removing the potential causes of ASD. Some of the known causes can be metabolic as in how the body breaks down food to create energy, nutritional, imbalances in immune systems and environmental causes like heavy metal toxins.

Naturopathy is diverse just as nature is in its way of healing. Naturopaths support the body to heal itself by removing the obstacles in our body’s way to heal. So, it can be quite different from child to another. Autism or any other types of ASD is different from one children to another. So, for a specific naturopathic consultation a personal visit to a reliable Autism Singapore naturopathic medicine clinic is important.

It is important that there are no rushed conclusions made on the diagnosis of ASD in children, make sure your child has been diagnosed professionally. For those who have been diagnosed, naturopathy can help lead to betterment of an autistic child’s overall well-being.

Naturopathy works in a whole that supports the child as a whole instead of focusing on the child’s autism alone. This approach helps to uncover a child’s behaviors and discover how these issues manifest themselves in the body eventually affecting the child. This information is used by a naturopathic doctor to support and nurture the child’s body and mind to defend itself.
