Autism is a pervasive developmental disorder which involves with biological, family and social & interventions. Most of the autistic special kids are suffering from sleep disorder problems, dysbiosis, ileocolitis (inflammation in the small intestinal end and in the colon), leaky gut syndrome (cramps, gastric problem, bloating, and pain) and abnormal stool formation.
Gut-Brain Axis Theory:
The gut is referred as the second brain. The endocrine and nervous systems communication are termed as the Gut-Brain Axis or brain-Gut axis and it is involved in many regular functions and systems within the hale & healthy body and also in diseases. Around 85% of the autistic children do have Gut (GI) gastric problems. Acetylcholine, serotonin, and dopamine are the neurotransmitters in Central Nervous System where 90% of the serotonin presents in the gut, 50% of dopamine and dual function of such neurotransmitters is an active episode of Gut-Brain research. Researches’ have found that the gram-positive bacteria “Clostridium” is in elevated levels in autistic children stool and the normal children stool do not contain that bacteria.
Pain and discomfort due to GI issues promptly make the behavioral changes in the autistic kids such as out bursting, banging on the head, making self-injury. The case study reveals by regulating digestive activities such as absorption and assimilation make remarkable changes that are noted in their behavior and once the discomfort settles down the kids are back to normal. In Ayurveda, the gut problem is treated promptly and Gut-Brain theory is highly significant in the management of gut discomforts among the special kids.
Gut-Brain axis theory is correlated with gut-mind-skin-cranial and cardiovascular function in Ayurveda because of Rasadhatu (The basic nutritive element highly influences the mind, heart, skin and cranial functions). Even though anatomical constituent of the brain is attributed to majjadhatu, the higher mental function is attributed to Rasadhatu.
How Ayurvedic treatment settles Gut Problems?
Ayurvedic external treatments like Oleation (Snehana), powder massage regulates Rasadhatu and corrects the mental functions. Customized diet, Yoga, treatment on the skin shows remarkable changes in the behavioral disorders of autistic kids. Correcting gut problems help to alleviate the rash behavior, spontaneous cry, and crankiness. Ayurvedic treatments help the special kids to lead their routine lifestyle without such a critical gut problem
