Autism is defined as a neurobiological pervasive development disorder that includes lack of social skills and inability to reciprocate to social interactions. The patient may also have intellectual and cognitive deficits and problems in communication (verbal as well as non-verbal).
Conventional medicine is mostly used to treat some of the symptoms but is never used to cure or provide remedies for autism. A proper professional homeopath will be able to guide you to get the best results for your child and reduce all the problems of autism, if not outright cure it.
Some of the medications that could be used to treat autism are as follows:
- Cuprum Metallicum: This works wonders when the child is being very obsessive, angry and is inflexible, tense and is very aggressive towards their parents. Some of these children may even exhibit malicious behaviors and are usually averse to touch or being approached.
- Androctonus: A child or a patient who tends to swing wildly from a stable good mood to a destructive mode can be calmed down or evened out by Androctonus. These children also exhibit behaviors of suspiciousness and quickness to act on their compulsion.
- Carcinosin: This is very helpful in children affected by autism who are talented, but are obsessive, compulsive, stubborn and also have sleep related issues. These children may also have addictive disorders.
- Agaricus: This medication is very good for children who may be mentally and physically awkward and show symptoms like indifference, muttering, talking, shouting or singing but not answering to direct calls or questions. Agaricus is very effective for children who suffer from involuntary jerking when they are awake.
- Helleborus: This is a very effective medication when the child is slow and under active and seems to be depressed most of the time. Some of these children may also have muscular weakness and helleborus is very effective in treating them. These are only a few examples of how homeopathy can provide remedies for your autistic child and thus is an effective solution.

Parkinson’s disease affects the part of the brain that controls muscle movement. The exact cause of this disease is not known, but there is a decrease in a chemical called dopamine in the brains of people with parkinson’s. There is no cure for parkinson’s, but it often progresses slowly and the signs can be managed.
The 4 most common signs of parkinson’s are:
• tremors or shaking when at rest
• muscle stiffness
• slowed movement or problems starting movement
• problems with balance and movement
As these signs worsen, you may also have trouble walking, talking, swallowing or doing simple tasks such as bathing or dressing. As the disease progresses, other signs such as pain, bowel or bladder problems and sleep problems may occur.
When you start to show signs of this disease, your doctor may order anti parkinsonian medicines or may also suggest some physical therapy to help manage your signs. The physical therapist can help you learn exercises, prescribed by a physiatrist, that can help you with movements.
You may need to work with your doctor to make adjustments in your medicines to keep your signs controlled. Over time, many people have side effects from the medicines used to treat parkinson’s disease, but they can be managed well.
You may also need occupational therapy or speech therapy to deal with signs as the disease progresses. As your signs get worse, surgery may be an option to reduce tremors.
Things you can do to manage your signs
• walk slowly with a straight posture and with your legs further apart. Think about taking big steps to help keep your steps more normal.
• use a 4-prong cane or a walker if needed.
• if you become stuck or freeze in one place, rock gently from side to
Side or pretend to step over an object on the floor.
• place tape strips on the floor to guide you through your house.
Remove area rugs and furniture from your walking path.
• stand up from a chair or bed slowly to avoid feeling dizzy or
When using the bathroom
• install grab bars on the walls, beside toilets and inside showers and bathtubs to help you stand up.
• use a shower chair inside the shower.
• install an elevated toilet seat to make standing up easier after using the toilet.
• shave with an electric razor.
• wear loafers or shoes with velcro.
• wear simple dresses or pants with elastic waistbands such as sweatpants.
When eating or drinking
• use a cup with a large handle to make it easier to hold.
• use a bowl instead of a plate to limit spills and make it easier to scoop up food.
Work closely with your health care team to manage your signs of parkinson’s disease.

(A Neurological Disorder)
Parkinson's disease is a neurological disease, or brain disorder, that leads to progressive difficulty with balance and coordination. In people who have Parkinson's disease, nerve cells in a region of the brain known as the substantia nigra become damaged or die. These cells are important because they produce the chemical dopamine, which helps to coordinate body movement-basal ganglia.
When dopamine-producing cells degenerate/die, the areas in the brain that control movement can no longer function properly, and symptoms of Parkinson's disease eventually develop.
Parkinson?s Disease Prevalence:-
Parkinson's disease can affect anyone, but it most often occurs in people who are over the age of 50. Only 15 percent of Parkinson's disease patients are diagnosed before they are 50 years old.
The prevalence of Parkinson's disease is nearly the same in both men and women, and recovery rate is more in men. People with a family history of Parkinson's may have a higher risk of developing the disease, but Parkinson's disease is rarely attributed to genetics alone.
Parkinson's Disease Symptoms
Symptoms of Parkinson's disease usually develop after about 80 percent of the brain's dopamine-producing cells are lost. The Main symptoms of Parkinson's disease include:
? Tremors(Kampam)- Tremulousness (uncontrolled shaking or trembling) of the hands, arms, legs, face, body is often one of the first indicators of Parkinson's disease.
? Rigidity. Profound stiffness or an inability to easily move the arms, legs, and trunk, pain and stiffness on neck muscles is another hallmark of Parkinson's.
? Bradykinesia:- describes the unnaturally slow movements that are characteristic of people with Parkinson's disease.
? Poor balance- Parkinson's disease affects balance, leading to difficulty walking and impaired coordination.
The symptoms of Parkinson's are generally mild at first, but become more severe over time, until they eventually interfere with your daily routine. This is usually the point when treatment is recommended.
The Outlook for People with Parkinson's disease
Parkinson's disease is a chronic, progressive condition, which means it is a lifelong disease that worsens over time when it is not treated properly.
Each individual's situation is different, but in general, the first symptoms of Parkinson's disease usually don't require treatment and may be restricted to one area or one side of the body.
Movement of symptoms to the other side of the body
? Tremors that become more pronounced and interfere with activities
? Bradykinesia, or slow movement, that becomes disabling
? Difficulty with hand writing
? Impaired swallowing and chewing
? Speech that becomes monotone
? Poor balance and repeated falls
? Slow, shuffling gait (manner of walking)
? Stooped posture
? Facial expressions that become stiff and blank
? Chronic constipation
? Poor bladder control
? Sleep disturbances
This progression is gradual in most people, but it may happen faster in some than others. Understandably, stress caused by the progression of the disease can lead to anxiety and depression.
There is cure for Parkinson's disease with Ayurveda treatment, With Ayurveda medicines and treatments we can relieve symptoms, slow down the progression and then we can completely arrest further degeneration of the of the cells, thereby we can completely control and cure the disease. If you are diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, it is important to work closely with your medical team, so your medications can be regularly adjusted to help you remain as functional as possible for as long as possible.
As far as Parkinson's disease is concerned this is a brain related issue, so will surely effect the mind; so I recommend 49% treatment to patients and 51% treatment to family members.
