Natural Treatment for Asperger's Syndrome

It's amazing how prevalent Aspergers is today. Aspergers is similar to autism but milder. The youngster is able to socialize a little bit more than a youngster with autism. Kids with Aspergers usually have a particular interest that they focus on -- such as math, painting, trains, etc. It is hard to get them interested in anything else. The onset of Aspergers usually occurs later in life than autism.

Possible causes of Aspergers is candida overgrowth in the gut, pollution and exposure to chemicals, food allergies or intolerances, genetic defect and, as stated above, vaccinations and overuse of antibiotics.

There are some alternative methods for helping Aspergers that have been working in many kids. One is heavy metal chelation therapy and another is rebuilding a healthy gut through the use of probiotics, enzymes and diet. I believe that a combination of both would be optimal. This comes from my own experience with heavy metal poisoning which caused me to have severe anxiety and the inability to go to social events. By following both protocols I have improved greatly. I have also been finding lots of information online about Aspergers kids completely recovering using these methods and who are now living normal lives. There are also many supplements, vitamins and herbs that help lessen the symptoms of Aspergers.

While there is no specific treatment or 'cure' for Aspergers, there are many interventions that can significantly improve the functioning and quality of life of people and kids with Aspergers. It is important to properly classify the condition and remember that it is not Aspergers disease, but rather a syndrome.

Herbal and homeopathic remedies can be viable alternatives to synthetic drugs and may be just as effective, with far fewer risks and side effects.

It is important that you only use natural remedies from a reliable source, as the quality of herbs used as well as methods of preparation may affect the strength and effectiveness of the remedy.

Depending on the symptoms that need treatment, certain herbal ingredients can be highly effective, such as:

• Chamomile
• Melissa officinalis
• Passiflora
• St. John’s Wort

Natural remedies may often contain a combination of ingredients for best effect. A holistic treatment plan aims to address the underlying cause of the problem and does not just treat the symptoms in isolation. In this way, it provides an all-around approach to greater well-being.
