Profile image of Rekha shinde

2021, European Journal of Molecular & Clinical Medicine

Early scientific studies of children, concentrated on specific areas of child behavior, such as speech, emotions, or play interest and activities. The studying different areas of child behavior at different age levels would be different. It would not add to our understanding of how behavior characteristics change as children grow older and of what causes them to change. Autism is a spectrum disorder and now community aware about autism; many of them having strong genetic background which is responsible to functional derangement of the brain and many metabolic functions derange in these kids, and involvement of immune system also the evident of many researches. Environmental factors are proven to precipitate the co-morbidities and symptomatologies of autism so many of research studies evidently come off with central nervous system pathology like migration, some structural abnormalities in hippocampus motor neuron abnormalities. Our main concern is physiological abnormalities like...

A case study on the ayurvedic management of Autism spectrum disorder (ASD - Vatapaitika unmada) using medhogulika and bhunana taila

Deepthi balakrishnan.

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a complex developmental condition characterized by qualitative abnormalities in social interactions, reduced communication skills, and restricted repetitive behaviors and activities. There is no direct reference to ASD in Samhitas and it can be considered as an Anukta vyadhi . Unmada , a disease that afflicts manovaha srothas, is characterized by the perversion of intellect, mind, and memory.ASD can be correlated to Vatika unmada . The treatment of unmada involves various Ayurvedic formulations. Medha gulika is a polyherbal formulation indicated in anxiety and mental depression, dementia and it improves memory, concentration, and brain functioning ( medhya ). Bhunaga Talia is an anubhootayoga indicated in treatment of apasmara , bhootonmada , vaksanga etc. Nasya and shiroshirodhara are effective in treating manovaha srothovikaras . Bhunaga taila and Medha gulika can be combined to develop an effective treatment protocol for ASD. The main aim of this study is to develop a protocol of treatment for a patient suffering from ASD, which helps manage the symptoms and make behavioral improvement. A 5-year-old female child who was brought to the OPD with the diagnosis of ASD was treated with both these medicines and the changes before and after the treatment was noted based on the Trivandrum Autism Behavioral Checklist (TABC). Minimal improvement was noted in the behavior of the child following treatment of 90 days.

Autism is a developmental disorder diagnosed on the basis of early-emerging social and communication impairments and rigid and repetitive patterns of behavior and interests. The manifestation of these varies greatly with age and ability, and the notion of an autism spectrum has been introduced to recognize this diversity. As per Ayurveda scriptures Autism is not explained independently, we can correlate with Unmada (insanity) cause by beeja dosa dusti(genetic material abnormality),Matraj Pittraj bhava vikriti (anomalous ovum and sperm) ,due to faulty Garbhiniparicharya (antenatal care), vitiation of Gharbhoupghatkar bhavas (detrimental factors affecting fetus) ) leads to impaired development of brain and mind, vitiation of kapha and tamoguna as well as vata and Rajo guna leads to genetic abnormality Beejadusti (atypical genetic material) .(1) The mental status of mother plays an important role for both physical and mental development of child. Currently available therapies in contemporary science are cognitive behavior therapy; behavioral management therapy, occupational therapy, nutrition therapy etc are effective while in Ayurveda specific Medhya Rasayana (brain tonic) can play indispensable role in treatment of autism. A five-year-old female child with parents reported in our OPD with diagnosed case of ASD. Course of 10 months Ayurvedic medication Medhya rasayana started, a remarkable response was observed in child clinical symptoms, growth and development achievement of milestones.

Autism Spectrum Disorder

Our Ayurveda case studies are the first-line evidence in Ayurveda medical literature as they present the original observations from our Ayurveda practitioners.

Brief Medical History

Patient aged 15 years, came to  AyurVAID Hospitals, Ramamurthy Nagar  with the following complaints

Integrated Summary

Dr. Zankhana Buch, the Chief Medical Officer at  AyurVAID Hospitals, Ramamurthynagar  assessed TB, and he was advised Classical Ayurveda Comprehensive Approach of Diet, lifestyle, Medicine, and Therapies.

TB’s response after completing two phases of his Panchakarma treatments at  AyurVAID Hospitals, Ramamurthynagar , came as a welcome relief to his parents. TB showed a satisfactory outcome by a visible correction in his bowel and bladder control, and functions, digestion, quality of sleep. His mother says: “TB is lot more calm and attentive. We would have never expected, TB to stay back in an unknown and strange environment outside. But, he spent a day long at  AyurVAID Hospitals, Ramamurthynagar , while he was on intensive cleansing treatment. We feel this indicates a strong positive change.”

AyurVAID firmly believes in its potential to deliver key outcomes, based on Ayurveda Shastras in a complex subject of Autism Spectrum. The current medical science of neurological conditions including Autism spectrum/Multiple Sclerosis /Alzheimer’s disease is moving towards a paradigm shift. Overturning decades old postulations in textbook regarding developmental disorders including Autism, textbooks are being rewritten, including the role of immune system and metabolism, role of gut microbiome.(Reference:University of Virginia,School of Medicine,Jonathan Kipnis)

Ayurveda, the Mother System of medicine, has bolstered this finding several centuries ago and have documented details of Manas, Buddhi and Indriya, its connection with the primary/innate immunity, metabolic fire and a ‘formulation’ for medicines, targeting the pervasive developmental disorders.

A beneficiary of this approach, TB recovers at  AyurVAID Hospitals, Ramamurthynagar , under the vigil of  Dr. Zankhana Buch , supported by Dr. Laya, and the dedicated and compassionate Paricharaka team of Justin, Sreekanth, Kumar and Manu.

Ayurveda offers effective management for Autism Spectrum Disorder.

What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is a traditional Indian healing system that uses a range of therapies to maintain good health and manage various health conditions. Some Ayurvedic therapies include herbal medicine, changes to diet, yoga, massage,  acupuncture and  Panchakarma .

Who is Ayurveda for?

Supporters of Ayurveda say that it can be used for people with a wide range of conditions, including autism, digestive problems, asthma, arthritis, heart disease, cancer, diabetes and skin diseases.

What is Ayurveda used for?

Ayurveda is used to prevent and treat many health conditions.

Supporters of Ayurveda as a therapy for autistic people say it can improve the characteristics of autism. They say it can improve behaviour , social skills , communication , anxiety , stomach and digestion problems, sleep , sensory difficulties , eye contact and ability to focus .

There is  no scientific evidence that Ayurveda changes the characteristics of autism .

Where does Ayurveda come from?

Ayurveda originated in India thousands of years ago. It’s commonly practised today in some Asian countries, especially in India and Nepal, and has gained popularity around the world.

In Australia, Ayurveda is practised as a form of  complementary and alternative medicine for a wide range of conditions, including arthritis, digestive problems, vertigo, skin conditions and autism.

What is the idea behind Ayurvedic therapy for autistic people?

Ayurveda is based on the belief that good health happens when your mind, body and spirit are perfectly balanced. Any imbalances can lead to health problems.

Supporters of using Ayurvedic therapy for autistic people claim that autism is mainly caused by imbalances or problems with  metabolism and digestion. These imbalances lead to a build-up of harmful toxins in the body. When Ayurveda is used as a therapy for autism, the idea is to remove these toxins and reduce the characteristics of autism.

These ideas are not supported by research.

What does Ayurvedic therapy for autistic people involve?

Ayurveda involves a combination of therapies. When it’s used as a therapy for autistic people, it can include:

The recommended treatments will vary for each individual. An Ayurvedic practitioner will assess your child’s physical, emotional and spiritual health and design a personalised treatment plan.

Does Ayurvedic therapy help autistic children?

There is currently  no good-quality evidence that Ayurveda helps autistic people .

There’s also evidence that certain Ayurvedic medicines and therapies are harmful . For example, some Ayurvedic herbal medicines might contain toxic levels of lead, mercury or arsenic, which can seriously harm children. And some Ayurvedic therapies can be dangerous. These include vomiting, enemas and withdrawing blood.

Ayurvedic therapy for autism that involves a  vegetarian or vegan diet will need careful planning to make sure children get all the nutrients they need.

Who practises Ayurveda?

Ayurvedic practitioners offer Ayurveda at private clinics. Some practitioners are certified by Ayurvedic associations. But Ayurveda might also be offered by inexperienced practitioners.

Although you can buy Ayurvedic herbal medicines in health food stores and online, many Ayurvedic therapies have not been proven to be safe and effective.

It’s always best to speak to your  GP or  paediatrician or a paediatric  dietitian before using this therapy.

Where can you find a Ayurvedic practitioner?

If you’re thinking about Ayurvedic therapy for your autistic child, see your GP or one of the other professionals working with your child. They can talk with you about its risks and benefits.

You could talk about Ayurvedic therapy with your  NDIA planner , early childhood partner or local area coordinator , if you have one.

Parent education, training, support and involvement

If your autistic child is having Ayurvedic therapy, you need to take your child to a clinic for sessions.

You might also need to choose and buy Ayurvedic herbal medicine, plan and make changes to your child’s diet, and make time for daily routines like yoga, meditation and breathing exercises.

Cost considerations

The cost of Ayurvedic therapy for autism depends on which therapies are used.

Therapies and supports for autistic children range from behaviour therapies and developmental approaches to medicines and alternative therapies. When you understand the main types of therapies and supports for autistic children , it’ll be easier to work out the approach that will best suit your child.
