Autism refers to a range of conditions that manifests as challenges with social skills, speech, and nonverbal communication, repetitive behaviors etc. Autism is a lifelong problem with a number of possible causes, including genetic problems or syndromes, severe infections that affect the brain like meningitis, celiac disease, encephalitis or exposure to toxins or illness during pregnancy (rubella, chemicals, etc.).

Ayurvedic medicine is respected as one of the world’s oldest and original organized study of medicine. Ayurvedic medicine utilizes a combination of specialized diets, herbs, yoga and massage to assist with the management of autism. Jeevaniyam patients afflicted with autism have demonstrated significant improvements through a series of treatments, including food elimination, sensitivity testing, herbal supplementation, yoga and social normalization. As a cure for autism has yet to be determined, management of the condition using Ayurvedic practices has demonstrated to be effective in supporting autistic patients in becoming functional in managing various symptoms of this condition.

Children with Autism usually exhibit gastrointestinal (GI) distress. They often have deficiencies of beneficial intestinal microbes, leading to inflammation or immune dysfunction, food intolerance, malabsorption, gas, constipation, bloating, diarrhea etc. Unfortunately, assessment of GI distress—and therefore treatment—can be complicated among ASD children due to communication difficulties. Further, ASD children may also exhibit food selectivity, which may further affect GI symptoms. Children with ASD have nutritional deficiencies that can lead to immunological and neurological problems. These GI symptoms, particularly constipation, gas, and bloating, may cause children to feel early satiety, which may affect food choice. The discomfort may also affect behavior and the ability to focus on other subjects.

This communication between the endocrine and nervous systems is thought to be involved in many regular functions and systems within the healthy body as well as in many diseases. Stress has been shown to cause increased intestinal permeability, causing gut bacteria to move into the systemic circulation, as well as organs such as the spleen, liver and mesenteric lymph nodes. Jeevaniyam believes that the serene connection between brain and your gut is important to be well maintained so as to be fit both mentally and physically. So, it is obvious and important to maintain the equilibrium and balance of gastrointestinal tract, especially in autistic patients.

At Jeevaniyam, the gut problem is treated promptly and is highly significant in the management of gut discomforts among the special kids. Ayurvedic teachings tell us that during the formation of bone or asthi dhatu, spaces are created within bones. These spaces are filled with nourishing tissues of media or fat which help in the formation of majja or bone marrow. The right balance between Masaharu and majjadhatu is the key to the right balance between gut and brain. Dhatus are tissues formed during the growth of human body and it is the basic balance of this dhatus that help to maintain the health of the body.

Some, or all, of these digestive issues, may be avoided by eliminating certain combination of foodstuff. Jeevaniyam recommends other digestive support for autistic children can be found through the use of a variety of digestive herbs, including:

  • Ginger
  • Long Pepper
  • Black Pepper

A mix of long pepper, ginger, and black pepper to accelerate the production of digestive enzymes and the absorption of essential nutrients called Trikatu. 
In addition to this, autistic children’s digestive disorders may be prevented through the use of naturally occurring probiotic flora; most often found in raw organic foods, high-quality, all-natural multi-strain probiotic supplements or fermented vegetables like sauerkraut and kimchi.

Ayurvedic external treatments like Oleation (Snehana), powder massage regulates Rasadhatu and corrects the mental functions. Customized diet, yoga, treatment on the skin shows remarkable changes in the behavioral disorders of autistic kids. Gut problems being a cause for the physical violence in children, solving them can cause a lot of betterment in them. Ayurvedic treatments help the special kids lead confident lifestyle without worrying about their gut problems.
