Ayurvedic Home Remedy for Gut Issues in Autism

Several studies have found that children with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) lead to more important medical issues, and the majority of which are constipation, abdominal pain, diarrhea, and indigestion. These problems differ from chronic diarrhea or to the inflammatory bowel disease.

In simple words, these GI symptoms can trigger the awakening of behavioral problems in the children.

Gut issues impact on kids behavior with Autism

Other studies have explained that children with ASD who encounter GI difficulties are more inclined to have critical manifestations of Autism.

Also, GI symptoms treatment mostly causes relief in social or behavioral symptoms.

Interestingly, all the developmental and behavioral problems are seen adjacent to the additional conditions that influence the gut. For example, children who have celiac disease are more prone to develop autism symptoms and other psychological problems.

The behavior and the gut both are bound collectively in some manner. Apparently, two significant factors trigger the Gut Issues in Autism

  • Unsuitable activation of the immune system, which further causes inflammation of the gut lining.
  • Type of bacteria that is present in the gut.

Both conditions are responsible for stimulating the gut issues in children with Autism.

Why Ayurvedic herbs are beneficial for gut issues in kids with Autism?

Parents with exceptional children often struggle over how they can enhance the mental and cognitive development of their children. In fact, western medication is also lacking to offer the best treatment for Autism.

Though autism and attention deficits hyperactivity disorders are not specified in the Ayurveda Charak Samhita, which is one of the most authentic medicinal manuals in Ayurveda, states that a condition that has not been specified in the text by name can be recognized, controlled and treated based on these principles such as;

  • Samuthanavishesha (Based on etiology)
  • Vikar Prakriti (Nature of disease)
  • Sthanantargatwam (Site of affliction)
  • Adhisthana Tarni (Site of imbalanced Doshas)

Ayurvedic medicine is considered as one of the ancient and fundamental systematic studies in the field of medicine. With the proper analysis of complementary techniques and western medicine, Ayurvedic medication employs the incorporation of specific diets, herbs, to aid in the treatment of autism.

Psychological stress plays an important role in regulating the Agni. Quality of Agni is influenced by the quantity as well as quality of food, compatibility of the food items, time and frequency of feeding and the psychological disposition of the child at the time of feed.

Any unexpected or unfavorable change in the living environment or caretakers is bound to increase the stress levels in these kids evident by their maladaptation tantrums. Usual accompaniments are temper tantrums, reduced span of attention, hyperactivity, irritability and disturbed sleep pattern.

Impaired digestive fire is unable to complete the proper digestion, resulting in the undigested or semi digested food in the Koshta(intestine) termed as Amasanchaya. Among the somatic signs, gut dysbiosis -diarrhoea, constipation, bloating etc.,goes hand in hand with the features of Agnimandyam (indigestion) which ends up in Amasancayam(accumulation of metabolic wastes)in the body.

The gut has a major impact on the brain and it effects immune system and can also influence brain and behaviour.

Agni(Digestive fire ) is the factor responsible for preventing toxins entry in to the system and detoxification of the internalised toxins.
In Autistic children Agni is unable to perform these functions properly.
Srotas (channels)are the channels in the body which provides nourishment to the whole body and responsible for some particular function with respect to specific body parts.
Extrinsic or intrinsic toxins in the system causes obstruction of these srotas, which results in the malfunctioning of various Dhatus and disturbing the internal environment of the body. As a result OJO KSHAYA happens in the body which leads to poor immunity , recurrent infections and uncommon behavioural symptoms which is the result of Manovaha srotas dusthi.
For the proper correction of all these factors Agni should be managed.Agni ensures the proper operation of srotas ,detoxification of toxins ;facilitate proper nutrition to Dhatus, proper functioning of manovaha srotas and formation of ojas.
In order to stabilise Agni certain medication and therapies are described.Child faces lot of hindrance in performing his daily activities due to irritation from these gut issues.
