Scope Of Homeopathy In The Management Of Autism Spectrum Disorders

Symptoms of AUTISM vary widely in individuals. Impairment in social interaction and verbal and non-verbal communication, and by restricted, repetitive or stereotyped behavior are the CHARACTERISTICS of autism, which reflect a disorder of ‘neural development’.

Autism Spectrum Disorders are considered to affect information processing in the brain by altering how nerve cells and their synapses connect and organize, but the exact causes and biological mechanism of this process is not so far well understood.

Even though autism has a strong genetic basis, it is not an INHERITED GENETIC DISEASE. It is not associated with any inherited chromosome abnormality. Rather, it is the ‘mutational’ outcome of EPIGENETIC factors influencing the neuron development during the early stages of fetal development and post natal period. Many factors known to be taratogens that cause BIRTH DEFECTS are also associated with development of autism.

Environmental causes, drugs, heavy metals, pesticides maternal and childhood vaccines, maternal and pre-natal infections, emotional shocks in mothers, alcoholism, illicit drugs, smoking – there are a lot of factors belonging to EPIGENETIC SPECTRUM of causes that lead to autism in a child. Certain foods, solvents, diesel exhaust, phthalates and phenols used in plastic products, pesticides, insect repellents, brominated flame retardants are also supposed to be implicated. ANTIBODIES formed in maternal body against diverse types of infections and alien proteins also have to be included in this list, which from a homeopathic angle indicates strong MIASMATIC basis for autism.

Any chemical molecule that may bind to enzymes involved in bio-molecular processes of genetic expressions associated with DEVELOPMENT OF NEURONS and SYNAPSES during pre-natal and post-natal phases of infants may lead to development of autism.

RADIATIONS that are composed of particles that carry enough kinetic energy to liberate an electron from an atom or molecule, can produce changes in various biological molecules and liberate hyperactive super oxides. These super oxide radicals bind to enzymes associated with GENETIC EXPRESSION, chromosome folding, histone methylation etc, leading to various EPIGENETIC errors. If these EPIGENNETIC errors happen during developmental stages of NEURONS and SYNAPSES, it may lead to AUTISM

Symptoms belong to Following characteristics:

Stereotypy is repetitive movement, such as hand flapping, head rolling, or body rocking.

Compulsive behavior is intended and appears to follow rules, such as arranging objects in stacks or lines.

Sameness is resistance to change; for example, insisting that the furniture not be moved or refusing to be interrupted.

Ritualistic behavior involves an unvarying pattern of daily activities, such as an unchanging menu or a dressing ritual. This is closely associated with sameness and an independent validation has suggested combining the two factors.

Restricted behavior is limited in focus, interest, or activity, such as preoccupation with a single television program, toy, or game.

Self-injury includes movements that injure or can injure the person, such as eye poking, skin picking hand biting, and head banging.

Homeopathic prescriptions should be based on TOTALITY OF SYMPTOMS, combined with a CAUSATIVE and MIASMATIC approach.

Symptoms in autistic child varies widely, and should be carefully recorded by directed OBSERVATIONS by the physician, and talking to CARE GIVERS.

Symptoms noted during earlier stages of disease development should be carefully collected. Emotional disturbances, infectious diseases, vaccinations and drugs to which mother has been exposed to during pregnancy have to be considered.

Peculiar GESTURES are most important in deciding the prescription. Emotional symptoms, symptoms associated with sleep positions and patterns, eating habits and peculiar cravings, abnormal fears and forebodings, thermal responses etc also are important.

You can never deal with autism by SINGLE DRUG approach. Multiple drugs will be required, depending up on symptoms, miasms and causative factors. Do not hesitate to use any number of drugs if indicated, and repeat doses frequently for long periods. Use only potencies 12c or above. Never use low potencies and mother tinctures. According to my view, 30C is the ideal potency. I use to mix all indicated drugs together to dispense as a single preparation.

Since AUTISM is not associated with chromosome abnormalities, it is CURABLE with homeopathy. It is an EPIGENETIC disease. Only problem is, the disease should be diagnosed and treatment started at very early stage of development. Earlier we start, better the chances of complete cure.

We can effectively prevent the birth of autistic children by regular administration of homeopathic drugs selected on the basis of physical generals and mentals to mothers right from the early months of pregnancy. Molecular imprints contained in appropriately selected homeopathic drugs can deactivate the exogenous and endogenous pathogenic molecules that act as epigenetic factors affecting the genetic expression processes associated with the development of neurons and synapses in infants, thereby preventing autism. This knowledge should be widely propagated and practiced as part of routine homeopathic pregnancy management protocol by homeopathic physicians.

I started practicing homeopathy in 1970, when I was 20 years old and studying for final year of BSc (Zoology) course. My interest in homeopathy happened very accidentally, through a constant relationship with a local practitioner who happened to be father of my classmate. I was a regular visitor in his clinic, where from I started reading BOERICKE MATERIA MEDICA and other homeopathic books, which helped me to cure myself my troublesome asthma that have been haunting me since my childhood days. I became a voracious reader of homeopathy. I was also deeply involved in studying marxism and dialectical materialism during my college days, which attracted me to political activities. MARXISM and HOMEOPATHY became two essential parts of my intellectual and practical life, which still continues so. Even though I joined DHMS course in a karnataka homeopathic college, I could not continue it due to my intense involvement in revolutionary political activities that resulted in jail life and a lot of criminal cases. Once that phase was over, I took a diploma in veterinary science and became a livestock inspector in animal husbandry department under govt of kerala. I have been continuing my study and practice of homeopathy all through these years. Since CCH act came into force only in 1976, and it contained provisions allowing existing practitioners to continue, my homeopathic practice went smoothly in parallel with my government job. In 1987, co-operating with some local homeopaths and social activists, I started Kannur District Homeopathic Hospital Sociey, which established a chain of hospitals and homeopathic clinics in different parts of Kannur district. After a few years I had to leave the society for some political reasons, and I established a 100 bedded well equipped homeopathic hospital in Taliparamba, employing a number of prominent homeopaths. That was ended up as a financial disaster for me due to many reasons, including my lack of skills as a money manager, and I was compelled to close down my dream project with in a short period. I lost huge money I invested, lost my reputation, and it pulled me into a debt trap. I learned a lot of valuabl lessons from this failure- about life, human psychology, relationships, and above all, about myself. I realized failure is the greatest teacher, if you are prepared learn from it. I learned how will power and determination to win will help us come back into life as a phoenix from our own ashes. I learned, one does not fail unless he stops fighting and accepts failure. My failure and the hardships that followed has moulded my personality in such a way that I can now withstand any disaster and fight back. I tell you, you will not know what life really is, unless you miserably fail at least once in your life. By this time, I left my government job also, and settled as a full time homeopathic practitioner. By this practice, I could repair my earlier financial losses, and establish well in life. It was during this period that I felt the need of developing a simple and user-friendly homeopathic software, that resulted in the evolution of SIMILIMUM, which was later upgraded into SIMILIMUM ULTRA. Similimum Ultra was well accepted by the profession, and it collected good revenues which continues even today. I stopped my practice a few years back , and concentrated in the study and research activities to evolve scientifically viable explanations to the so-called riddles of homeopathy. This unrelenting study resulted in MIT or Molecular Imprints Therapeutics, which provides a scientific and rational explanation for homeopathy. I started a homeopathic discussion group on facebook called HOMEOPATHY FOR TOTAL CURE, which has more than 35000 homeopaths as members. By this work on facebook, I could establish close relationship with many homeopaths around the world. It goes on. I could successfully convert facebook as my office and work place, from where I propagate my MIT ideas, co-ordinate my works for homeopathic community, and sell my Similimum Ultra Software. My years of hardwork in search of HOW HOMEOPATHY WORKS ultimately resulted in the publication of a book titled REDEFINING HOMEOPATHY (3000 pages, 3 volumes, hard bound, Rs 6000), in which I have compiled my articles regarding my scientific explanations of basic principles of homeopathy. These ideas are called MIT or MOLECULAR IMPRINTS THERAPEUTICS. MIT is now included in the syllabus of MD (HOM) course of prestigious DY PATIL DEEMED UNIVERSITY, PUNE, INDIA. Research department of SARADA KRISHNA HOMEOPATHIC COLLEGE, Kulashekharam, Tamilnadu, India, the only NAC accredited homeopathy college in India, has recently taken up certain reserch projects for proving the scientific explanations proposed by MIT. Based on MIT perspective of homeopathy, I had developed an MIT PROTOCOL for scientific homeopathy, and initiated a project for establishing a chain of MIT NETWORK CLINICS all over India, where MIT PROTOCOL will be practiced. More over, I have developed a whole range of 351 MIT FORMULATIONS, which are disease-specific combinations of post-avogadro diluted homeopathy drugs. NOW I AM IN 71st YEAR OF MY LIFE, AND STILL LOOKING FOR NEW HORRIZONS!
