Understanding The Risks Of Homeopathic Treatments

Holistic approach to helping those with autism
Dr. Drew Rubin

When parents first get their children diagnosed with autism, they are often devastated to learn that there is no real cure to this disorder. There are a number of behavioral therapies that are effective at increasing how well an individual with autism can function, but there is no simple cure.

Because of this, many parents begin to experiment with homeopathic remedies. These remedies are unproven and in many cases not effective, but it is understandable why parents may choose to try them. However, in some situations these homeopathic treatments can be potentially dangerous. At NDFYA, we firmly believe that the best way to bring about improvement in the lives of those with autism is through behavioral therapies. These can greatly reduce the severity of the symptoms these individuals deal with while promoting their independence. If you have a child who could benefit from this type of treatment, then it is important to reach out for help as quickly as possible. You can contact us today at 877-763-5102.

Common Unproven Treatments For Autism

1 – Vitamin B12 injections – Injections of highly concentrated B12 are becoming an increasingly common treatment among those who turn to homeopathic treatments. Unfortunately, these can have a number of negative impacts on a person’s health. Please don’t try something like this with your child before consulting with a doctor.

2 – Gluten free diet – This diet can be helpful for some health problems, but there is no proof that it has any impact on autism.

3 – Casein free diet – This diet is similar to the gluten free diet in that it is helpful for some specific health issues but has no effect on autism.
