Whether you or someone in your life is living with autism, you already know that there is all kinds of controversy regarding treatment options. If you are looking for amore natural, complementary approach for autism treatment in Orange County, you will find that just a little bit of research and help from the right professional may be all that you need.
The idea of alternative, or complementary medicine, for the treatment of autism is nothing new. This is an approach that is now widely used by families everywhere that are caring for a member with autism. As a matter of fact, roughly half of the children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder in the United States alone are benefitting a great deal from the use of natural, complementary therapies.
These are just a few of the different natural options that may be recommended for the treatment of autism today:
Melatonin – A staggering number of the children who are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder will also have some sort of sleep disorder, with insomnia being the most prevalent. Sleep issues such as these can then go on to impact many adolescents and young adults living with autism.
This naturally occurring hormone works by helping to regulate the sleep-wake cycles, with the supplements showing great promise for helping to reduce insomnia and also improve sleep for patients with insomnia.
Dietary Changes – While it may seem like a great deal of hype to some people, many parents of children who are on the spectrum have reported that there is a great deal of behavioral improvement after having their child on a diet that is free of proteins like casein and gluten.
Gluten is found mainly in rye, barley and wheat. Casein is found in dairy products. However, as with any sort of dietary changes, it is best to consult the child’s physician and formulate a plan with your naturopath to come up with the best food options to reach your goal. It is always important that you go into the dietary changes for a gluten and casein diet in a manner that is as safe and reliable as possible.
Nutritional Supplementation – There has been some solid evidence that children who are diagnosed with autism will usually be deficient in specific nutrients. Not only is a daily vitamin good for anyone, but it is recommended with anyone who has autism, especially one that may not be taking in a diet that is well-balanced.
You can also talk with a naturopath about the different supplements that are good for helping to protect against anxiety, stress and a number of other health concerns that you may have regarding your child and their well-being.
