Peppermint Oil for Autism
Using peppermint oil (and other essential oils) for autism is a fresh concept that many people are willing to consider as a supplement or replacement to many traditional therapies that may be falling short. In order to benefit from the use of this alternative medicine for treatment, children and adults along the autism spectrum need to be generally accepting of the oil (mainly, to the scent) in order to reap the most benefits.
The challenge of the spectrum of disorders we call autism demands that we cast a wide net in hunting down anything that might aid improvement. Herbal medicine, while not yet on a par with other alternative autism treatments in the United States, offers promise for a swath of common problems that accompany the syndrome.
Autism Treatment through Traditional Chinese Medicine
Autism in the Western medical sense does not exist in Chinese medicine. Instead, it is classified under the Syndrome of 5 Delays. The "delays" are observed in the areas of standing, walking, hair growth, teeth eruption and speech. This type of brain dysfunction in children, classic autism characteristic, is seen in traditional Chinese medicine as an imbalance of body functions. Based in the yin/yang theory, TCM views disease within the framework of energy balance.
Oregano has potential anti-viral activity, and a spray containing aromatic essential oils from five plants, including oregano, was found to significantly relieve symptoms "immediately" in those with upper respiratory infections.If you come down with a cold or the flu, oregano oil can also be useful. Generally, the higher the carvacrol concentration, the more effective it is. Interestingly, oregano encourages sweat production as a mode of detox, and ingesting it may help your body to get rid of unwanted phlegm in your lungs.
Thousands of children have been cured of autism—shedding their diagnosis and returning to mainstream classrooms—with a variety of natural therapies. This post is meant to empower parents by suggesting first steps you can take at home while seeking professional help (which will provide the heavy lifting). Most kids who recover have benefited from multiple modalities—not all modalities work for all children and the same technique which fails to provide any progress for a child at one point can be very helpful several years later.
