The first thing most people think of when they hear calcium is “MILK” But
The typical reaction when someone is told to eliminate something from their diet — something they love — is often disappointment and denial. Our food habits are so engrained that reforming those habits can be challenging, but the way we handle these challenge is what helps us develop in life and our health.

Myth about calcium and bone strengths.

Calcium is an essential nutrient that should be a part of every healthy diet, but many people grew up hearing that the best way to consume it is by drinking milk or eating dairy products. Now we know this may not be the best idea.

Introduction on Adulteration of Milk.

If you are not getting pure A2 milk (which does not seems possible after giving Rs110 /litre still milk was adulterated).

suggested you should read below topic and think.

Milk adulteration is a serious problem in India. There are reports which suggest that 68 per cent of milk in India is adulterated with products like glucose, caustic soda, white paints, oil or even detergents. Chemicals like hydrogen peroxide, boric acid and antibiotics, that help increase mill’s shelf life, are harmful for human health. A recent report by the Consumer Guidance Society of India (CGSI) in Maharashtra said that 78 per cent of the milk samples tested were below FSSAI standards.

So Personally

what We suggest is green juices and smoothies are my numero uno recommendation, but second is always…dumping dairy.

That’s right, go dairy-free if not getting pure A2 milk .For A2 milk refer my previous article on milk.

You’re gonna learn a lot about dairy in a minute, but here are a few of the main reasons we removed it from our diet.

The biggest advantage was Dhruva struggling with Autism and its side-effects due to this Adulterated milk.

The moment milk was out of his diet most of the Symptoms of Autism Subsided..My son had 2 Root canals due to this Adulterated milk.

(Adulterated)Dairy is high in saturated fat (which can lead to stroke and heart attacks), it’s highly inflammatory (the root cause of many chronic diseases), and the growth hormones in dairy (ex. IGF1) can stimulate malignant cell growth and proliferation Cancer too.

FROM my personal experience with around hundreds of kids now in my group “AUTISM CURE POSSIBLE” and our health too saying “adieu to dairy”can totally transform your health. So even if you’re not keen on ditching your milkshakes and brie today, I invite you to learn a little more about these non dairy Calcium rich food. Even lessening the amount of dairy you consume can make a REAL DIFFERENCE in how you feel.

Dairy ,If your child is lactose intolerant or allergic to the proteins found in dairy, you may see changes in her mood and behaviour. Many children become irritable, cranky, or aggressive. … Babies may exhibit colicky symptoms, whereas toddlers and older children may become inconsolable and irritable. Children with dairy allergies or intolerance also tend to suffer from frequent colds and ear infections.

some kids especially kids on SPECTRUM cannot consume dairy due to either allergies, sensitivities, or personal choice IRRITATION caused due to TOXINS in milk..

So, it becomes necessary that we replace it with other sources. What are the foods that are rich in calcium besides milk?

Why do some people not want to drink milk?

  • Some people do not like the smell of milk, so they avoid drinking it.
  • People with Lactose Intolerance will have problems with digesting milk. Their body will resist milk. This is a hereditary problem.
  • Those who follow vegan diet will not eat or consume anything that has its source in an animal.
  • Having doubts regarding the quality of milk they get, will make some people stay away from it..

Small comparison of lactose intorrence and lactose digestion.

How dairy impacts your health

A cow drinks cow’s milk when it’s a baby. A bunny drinks bunny’s milk when it’s a baby. Beyond a certain age, even they know that it’s freaky to suckle. And do you ever see them switch and swap? The only time milk is essential for good health is when we are babies, being breastfed by human mothers.

Human breast milk is nature’s perfect formula for human babies. It’s rich in good fats like DHA for brain development, but it’s relatively low in protein.

Cow’s milk contains more than three times as much protein as breast milk. That’s because baby cows need a lot more protein. They grow to between 1,500 and 2,000 pounds. Is that your desired weight?

While the protein in human milk is designed for human bodies, much of the protein in cow’s milk is difficult for humans to digest. In addition, the over-consumption of this protein can lead to serious health conditions.

One of the professor emeritus of nutritional biochemistry at Cornell University, found that the protein that consistently creates and promotes cancer is casein, which makes up about 87 percent of the protein in cow’s milk. According to Professor a diet that contains more than 10 percent protein (that’s about 50 grams of protein if you’re consuming 2,000 calories per day) can lead to the little “c.”

Forget spooky, life-threatening diseases, let’s talk about simpler pickles. Ever pass a kidney stone? If you have, then you know that it’s incredibly painful— feels like shooting an elephant through your pee hole!

How about ,Gut inflammation, an inflammation blow-out sale? Both of these not-so-happy afflictions have been linked to dairy consumption.

Allergies, eczema, asthma, arthritis, inflammation, and zits can all be linked to dairy. What about skim milk or non fat milk? They’re just as bad.

For me, cheese and curd was the hardest thing to give up, but once I did, my Migraine HEADACHES DISAPPEARED . I also started to FEEL SO RELAXED.

How about tummy pain, gas and bloating? Well, there may be a good reason for your belly’s aching. According to the American Academy of Family Physicians, around 75 percent of the world’s adults can’t digest milk (they’re lactose-intolerant).

This article will provide a list of calcium-rich foods that come from non-dairy sources.

So now coming to question .

what IS CALCIUM EXACTLY !

What is calcium?

Calcium is a type of mineral. A Grown-up adult needs around 1000 to 1200mg of calcium a day. Though its needed quantity is much less, it is extremely important. Our body is not capable of manufacturing calcium on its own. So, we need to supplement it from external sources.

Why do we need calcium?

  • For growth of teeth and bones.
  • Proper functioning of nervous system
  • Improving muscle strength
  • Maintaining heart’s health
  • For proper functioning of various hormones in our body

Our body spends 99% of the calcium it gets to bones and teeth, a mere 1% is spent on other tasks.The body needs calcium which is stored in bones and teeth to carry out many functions. Besides giving us healthy bones and teeth, calcium help muscles move and helps nerves carry messages between the brain and other body parts. It also helps move blood through blood vessels.

CALCIUM is one of those minerals that always seem to concern us as a consumer, as an adult and as a parent. Why?

Calcium is a strong contributor to the strength and structure found in our bones and our teeth. Not only that, but it also helps maintain the heart’s rhythm, it ensures movement in our muscles and it assists transporting blood throughout our body.

Calcium plays a critical role in releasing hormones and enzymes that impact our body’s function which help prevent and control high blood pressure, reduce PMS symptoms and manage mineral levels found in our blood including magnesium, phosphorus and potassium. .

No wonder our parents kept insisting that we consume enough dairy as a source of calcium while growing up.

But, where will I get NON DAIRY CALCIUM?

This is probably the most frequently asked question when talking about going dairy-free. Good news!

Nature’s best calcium sources are dark leafy greens such as kale, collards, mustard greens, and turnip greens. The calcium in these foods is absorbed at double the rate of dairy calcium. About 30 percent of dairy calcium is absorbed whereas about 60 percent of calcium from dark leafy greens is absorbed. Other rich plant sources of calcium include beans, almonds, figs, and fortified non dairy milks such as unsweetened almond milk, oat milk, hemp milk, and rice milk.

Leafy Green Vegetables including Broccoli, bok choy, Chinese cabbage
Fish including sardines and canned fish (with bones)
Nuts and seeds including brazil nuts, almonds and tahini (sesame seed paste)
Calcium-fortified foods including breakfast cereals, fruit juices and bread Soy and tofu products if they are fortified with calcium. Look for at least 100mg calcium/100mL on the nutrient information panel.

Note: please prepare these milk at home itself..drink fresh prepared ones.Avoid tetra pack one’s.

When it comes to bone health, calcium isn’t the only factor. Overall diet and activity levels determine bone health and even calcium needs. Countries with the highest calcium intake have the most osteoporosis, so there’s obviously more to the bone-health story than calcium alone.

What Happens If There Is Too Less Calcium?

Calcium deficiency would trigger a multi-functional setback, given its critical role in the metabolism and maintenance of your body. Following are the symptoms of calcium deficiency or hypocalcaemia .

1.Numbness of fingertips and toes.
2.Muscle cramps
3.Convulsions
4.Lethargy
5.Poor appetite
6.Arrhythmia
7.Rickets (if coupled with vitamin D deficiency)
8.Random neuromuscular irritability.
9.Chronic renal failure
10.Pancreatitis
11.Cardiovascular disease.

To avoid such repercussions, it is best to have a balanced diet rich in calcium as well.

Why Vitamin D is responsible for calcium absorption ?

Here’s another helpful factoid, vitamin D—which is necessary for calcium absorption and is best obtained from 20 minutes of sunshine 3 times a week during summer months and fortified, nondairy foods or supplements during winter months—is now being considered the most important nutrient in bone health.

Kids need vitamin D to help the body absorb calcium. Without it, calcium can’t get where it needs to go to build strong bones.

Vitamin D isn’t in many foods that kids eat. Because of this, health care providers often recommend supplement

But it’s free of cost available from Sun then why to pay.

Bottom line: A diet rich in plant foods easily meets calcium needs. Check out this handy infographic for even more info on your calcium needs and plant-based sources.

How much calcium can your body absorb at a time?

Your body can take up about 500 mg of calcium at a time. Although the daily requirement is approximately 1000-1200 mg, it is better to split the total into small doses of 500 mg across the day. This would ensure maximum absorption of calcium.

How do you determine the levels of calcium in your body?

Levels of calcium in your body can be determined by taking a simple blood test. It can help you diagnose calcium deficiency or calcium excess. The result indicates the amount of calcium circulating freely in the blood, but not that stored in bones.

The reference range for calcium in adults is 8.6 mg/dL to 10.2 mg/dL, and for children, it varies from lab to lab.

There are many foods that contain calcium, as well as many other wonderful vitamins and nutrients. Almonds and sesame seeds, which we give daily to DHRUVA are great sources of calcium.

So is collards, celery, avocados, onions, green beans, and asparagus. The lesser eaten prickly pear, okra, gooseberries and dandelion greens are also great sources of calcium.

Not only this calcium is great for our bones and helps to prevent osteoporosis, but it is also helpful in lowering high blood pressure.

Dairy, on the other hand, which most people think of as the needed source of calcium, actually causes mucus (which leads to respiratory problems) and is typically laden with hormones and pesticides from the cow feed.

Dairy is also acid-forming when metabolize and most dairy products are pasteurised to kill harmful bacteria but this process also kills the good vitamins, proteins, and enzymes. Research also leads dairy products with arthritis.

Choose better ways to get your calcium than through milk and dairy products. By eating lots of leafy greens and nuts you will also reap the many other benefits of these natural and delicious foods.

Beyond childhood, most people stop producing the enzyme lactase, which is needed to digest lactose (the sugar in milk). Yeah, your body thinks you should wean, too. I’ve never met someone who didn’t feel better once they removed dairy from their diet. Sorry folks, but all good things come to an end.

BEWARE !!!

Calcium supplements are synthetic formulations of calcium compounds. Most of these are safe for human consumption BUT IF ALL THE CALCIUM IS FROM NON DAIRY SOURCES THEN WHY TO RELY ON DAIRY SOURCES

Water(Aquatic,Hydro) Therapy by Sneha Narayan

Autism spectrum disorders manifest in a number of ways, from problems with behavior and communication to developmental and cognitive disabiliities.
Autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) are increasing in prevalence. Children with ASDs present with impairments in social interactions; communication; restricted, repetitive, and stereotyped patterns of behavior, interests, or activities; as well as motor delays. Hydrotherapy is used as a treatment for children with disabilities and motor delays.

For me also was struggling through all these\n in Dhruva 1.5 years back but meet a renowned Doctor (orthopedic MD) who has even treated Sachin Tendulkar..to discuss Dhruva’s Muscle tone problem..and he just advised 2 hrs WATER PLAY DAILY BY FAIL.

This therapy helped us a lot to develop bonding with him.

One common treatment for children with autism spectrum disorders is aquatic therapy or hydrotherapy and steam therapy.

In this therapy use water immersion to achieve therapeutic gains that may be too difficult for a child to attain through land-based physical therapies.
Hydrotherapy is a natural remedy for treating medical conditions using water. Hydrotherapy can come in the forms of steam, vapor, water, and ice and it has benefits for various ailments in adults. Did you know that Hydrotherapy can benefit children with ailments, too? It sure can! Hydrotherapy for children is more common than we think. What makes it better? Children love water, whether playing in a pool or even in the backyard with a garden hose.

For 2 months we have been following as advised by doctor and wonders happened his stability and balance has improved ..his sensory need got fulfilled and was more happy and calm..after water play.

    Benefits of water therapy

Being submerged in water provides calming support, pressure, and buoyancy that helps kids on the autism spectrum develop their sensory processing skills, reach new physical milestones, and strengthen their social skills and self-regulation abilities.
It’s not necessary you require a swimming pool .you can even have a small plastic tub to carry water therapy.

Try taking the baby to beaches..it not only helps to bond child with parents but also improves social communication..

Interested in how hydrotherapy might be able to help a child in your life with autism? Keep reading to learn more.

Note: “Hydrotherapy” and “aquatic therapy” are used interchangeably in this blog post

A few ways aquatic therapy can help ease symptoms of ASD are:

  • Better Balance. Aquatic therapy helps strengthen muscles, which increases balance and develops better range of motion. It helps that water play is fun and individualized, even for kids on the spectrum.
  • Better Communication Skills. Being in the water doesn’t mean a lot of social interaction, but it can be a safe place to practice small interactions without the pressure to chat.
  • Help With Sensory Issues. Often, children with ASD struggle with sensory integration disorders. Water tends to have a calming effect, and some therapies include activities designed to help sensory issues.
  • Better Oral Motor Skills. Some kids with ASD struggle with certain motor skills, like sipping through a straw or blowing out candles on a cake. Because aquatic therapy includes activities like blowing bubbles in water or blowing a ball across the water, kids develop stronger oral motor skills.
  • Better Swimmers. Being in the water makes kids more comfortable when it’s time to learn to swim. Water is especially hazardous for children with ASD because many have difficulty communicating when they are in danger. Aquatic therapy gives autistic kids time to build a crucial skill.
  • Cognitive Learning

    Children improve range of motion, neurodevelopmental growth, and body awareness with hydrotherapy. Their attention span increases, along with impulse control, concentration and focus, along with the ability to follow directions.

  • Task Completion

Autistic children respond better with visual cues and tangible rewards than with verbal cues. These children who practice hydrotherapy also tend to be better visual learners.

  • Water Safety

During hydrotherapy, children have a better understanding of water safety, but still require a significant amount of supervision as they still lack verbal responses. kids become familiar with water, gain skills with swimming, and understand the safety hazards.

The swimming pool can be transformed into a sensory room with different treatment stations that have different treatment aims such as memory development, co-ordination development , proprioceptive and vestibular feedback. This is done using different props within the water. Each exercise and activity can include one or all of the senses such as visual, auditory, tactile etc as well as using memory, sequencing and other cognitive processes. Speech and language can be developed along side mathematics and the level can be graded according to the child’s ability. The water adds a new dimension to the senses, giving resistance where it is needed and helping with movement flow as required. It is a great way to incorporate strengthening exercises and promote general fitness for the children.

Sensory Processing Benefits of Aquatic Therapy

Most children with autism also experience a mild to severe sensory integration disorder, or the inability to effectively take in, organize, and respond to sensory input. In fact, sensory processing deficits are one of the main triggers behind the inappropriate, anti-social, or self-destructive behaviors that are often associated with autism spectrum disorder.

Occupational therapy seek to minimize these sensory issues through sensory modulations. Sensory therapies usually refers to activities, such as swinging, jumping, touching different textures, or trying new foods that stimulate the senses. It also refers to external supports, such as weighted blankets, pressure vests, and full-spectrum lightings, that help children with autism better cope with sensory deficits. It is necessary to help children with autism thrive.

Interestingly, aquatic therapy help with sensory modulation. In other words, aquatic therapy includes activities meant to help children with autism strengthen their sensory processing skills, while the water itself is a sensory modulation—and an ideally safe and supportive environment for trying new skills. Water, particularly warm water, provides children with autism with three kinds of sensory support:

Hydrostatic pressure

Children with autism are known to crave deep pressure. Water provides this through hydrostatic pressure, or the pressure that a liquid exerts when it’s at rest. Water exerts 30x more deep pressure stimulation on the body than air. More importantly, unlike pressure vests or weighted blankets, water completely surrounds and envelopes the child’s body, perfectly distributing an equal and consistent amount of pressure on all submerged parts of the body. The result is an especially calming environment that soothes children with autism, helps them organize other sensory inputs, and gives them more confidence to try new movements.

Vestibular stimulation

Some of the obsessive, repetitive behaviors that children with autism exhibit, such as rocking and twirling, are directly related to an underdeveloped vestibular system.

Children with autism usually engage in these activities because they are trying, by external measures, to develop a sense of balance. Unfortunately, these maladaptive modulations are also distracting and, too often, self-destructive. By contrast, moving around in water creates a controlled vestibular situation that is safe and more effective than other methods.

Proprioceptive feedback

Aquatic therapy for children with autism includes activities specifically designed to provide proprioceptive feedback. Proprioception, also known as your sixth sense, is your body’s ability to understand where it is in space—which is an ability that develops later in childhood, explaining why babies need to be held and why toddlers’ movements are erratic. For children with autism, this sense is usually underdeveloped, making them seem clumsy or strange in their movements. In water, the resistance children encounter when they move, the feel of water rushing past them, and the hydrostatic pressure when they are still all combine to give enhanced proprioceptive feedback and improve this sense.

After an aquatic therapy session,kids report better moods, better focusing abilities, and better sensory processing abilities. The enhanced sensory input that children with autism receive in water helps them develop body awareness, gain greater touch tolerance, and improve their ability to coordinate all of the different sensory inputs received from the environment and focus on the correct one.Those who don’t have swimming pool can use this tub easily available online.

Physical Benefits of Aquatic Therapy

In addition to all of the sensory processing benefits, aquatic therapy also helps children with autism develop physically. Of course, any type of exercise is beneficial, but moving in water works more muscles simultaneously than any other exercise! Water exercise not only strengthens all muscles, including the heart, it also improves coordination, range of motion, balance, and endurance—all skills that tend to be underdeveloped in children with autism.

More importantly, being in water makes the body more lighter and more buoyant, and reduces the fear of injury, making children with autism feel more confident trying new movements that they might never try on land. This confidence, in turn, gives them an increased sense of mastery and accomplishment, usually through the use of play-based, functional movements.

Finally, working in water can enhance core strength, reduce pain and stress on the joints and soft tissues, improve motor planning and fine motor skills, strengthen oral motor skills (such as blowing out candles or drinking through a straw), and increase breathing control.

Social and Behavioral Benefits of Aquatic Therapy

On top of all of the other benefits of aquatic therapy, being in the water is just plain fun. After a successful session, many occupational therapists report that children with autism are more talkative and social, better able to cooperate—and more interested in imaginative and group play.

The calming effects of being in water tend to last well past the initial session. Psychologically, hydrotherapy often results in better moods, better impulse control, improved self-esteem and body image, decreased anxiety, and a marked drop in problem behaviors.

There are secondary benefits to aquatic therapy, too. For kids, being in the water doesn’t feel like a chore or like a clinical doctor’s office — it’s fun.

It doesn’t matter how big or small a child is — the water accommodates all sizes. Some sensory issues make it difficult for kids on the spectrum to comfortably take part, but water helps. It eases anxiety and calms feelings of discomfort.

All kids have trouble with short attention spans, but this is particularly true of autistic children. Being in the water tends to help them stay focused.

Aquatic Therapy Can Improve Social Behaviors

More than anything else, many children with autism spectrum disorders struggle to socialize. Since aquatic therapies are inherently social in nature (they occur between a therapist and one or more patients), they can offer children with autism an effectively structured way to form social bonds and learn interpersonal skills that can be transferred to other areas of life.

In addition, aerobic exercise like swimming has been shown to reduce negative behaviors common in children with autism, such as rocking, spinning, head-nodding, hand flapping, object-tapping, and light gazing. These kinds of behaviors can be a hindrance to normal socialization, and their reduction may make social connections with peers and other individuals easier. Analyses of studies published in major journals corroborate these claims.

Hydrotherapy Can Help with Sensory Processing Disorders

Autism often coincides with sensory processing disorders, making children suffer from frequent “sensory overload.” The hydrostatic pressure in water has been show to help children with sensory processing disorders or vestibular issues by providing a gentle, soothing physical environment.

Additional Information about Hydrotherapy for Children

While hydrotherapy works for adults and children alike, certain measures are taken into consideration for children for a successful therapy session. Children require a lower water temperature for hydrotherapy to avoid scalding and burns. The safe water temp for hydrotherapy in children is 90 to 94 degrees Fahrenheit. Also, hydrotherapy times are different from adults due to size and age. Children are in the water for 10 minutes times their age. For example, a five year old will use hydrotherapy for 50 minutes for a successful session.

See Improved Outcomes With Aquatic Therapy

Behavioral therapy is much easier after time in the water, which helps calm a busy body and mind. Exercise itself is a form of therapy, and when done it water, it’s not work.

Because dietary changes are sometimes met with opposition, it’s easier to tackle these when children are hungry — and water exercise is great for increasing appetites.

Aquatic therapy can help with the side effects of certain drugs. The exercise helps your child process medications and will often work against effects like drowsiness or weight gain. Because the exercise involves water play, children are happy to join.

kids hydrotherapy at home surrounding..

There are three key factors in hydrotherapy, and they are heat, buoyancy, and massage. The heat of the water helps relax the child before therapy begins. The buoyancy of the water reduces body weight, allowing less pressure on the body during movements and exercises. The massaging feature is created by a mixture of water and air through water jets. The water jets help relax muscles, massage the body, and allow ease of sensory processing in children.

With all the benefits of hydrotherapy for autistic children, therapy is most easily done at home. get a normal tub that will hardly cost 2000 to 400 bucks and start at home itself. This is one style of a hot tub that is easy to install, eco-friendly, and budget-friendly, too.

waterfalls all around

Water is stimulating and exciting and most children love the difference of doing their therapy activities in the water. Activities can be adapted to suit many children in a fun and stimulating way. The water can also be used as a calming tool with relaxing music, a warmer temperature and attention to lighting.

Occupational therapy is based on purposeful and meaningful activity in which the person concerned actively engages in their treatment. Purposeful and meaningful activity for children is play. Children learn through play and play is used in THERAPY. Water play, therefore, is becoming increasingly popular for sensory integration, developmental co-ordination disorder, attention deficits, hyper active children and many other condition…

AUTISM And Massage Therapy By Sneha Narayan

Baby Massage: A Step-By-Step Guide To Do It Safely

“Tatra ruksho laghu sheetah, khara sukshmaschalo nilah”
The qualities of Vata are dry, light, cool, rough, subtle, and mobile.

what i have learnt from my 1.5 yrs of experience is AUTISM is nothing but increased VAAT in a kids body due to adulterated food we are giving kids for prolonged time.. when giving adulterated food to kids for long time vaat keeps on increasing in the body and a time comes when the kids central nerves system is affected by vaat and all the AUTISM features come up..later on if vaat is note checked PITT is also affected and kids become violent and sometime self hurting also comes..

Research shows that children with autism have early loss of child-to-parent bonding, as well as loss of the ability to feel pleasure and reassurance with parent touch. Instead they near-universally reject, avoid, or fail to notice touch. Without the ability to enjoy touch and close physical contact, children aren’t socially receptive and can’t be soothed by parent touch. Before long, social delay and abnormal behavior are evident.

Research shows that pleasure and bonding with gentle touch are mediated by tiny sensory nerves in the skin, and when these nerves are damaged, children lose pleasure and bonding with touch. Fortunately, the damage is reversible, and treatment with massage for autism returns the sense of touch to normal. This improves bonding, stimulates social development and eliminates autistic behavior.

INTRODUCTION TO VAAT

Vata governs all movement in the mind and body. It controls blood flow, elimination of wastes, breathing and the movement of thoughts across the mind.

Since Pitta and Kapha cannot move without it, Vata is considered the leader of the three Ayurvedic Principles in the body. It’s very important to keep Vata in good balance.

Do you need to balance Vata?

Vata dosha governs flow and motion in the body. Answer these questions to see if you need to balance Vata.

  1. Is your kids skin dry, rough, thin?
  2. is your kid underweight?
  3. Is your kids mind constantly in a whirl?
  4. Do your kid worry incessantly?
  5. Is you kid constantly restless or agitated?
  6. Do your kid experience constipation?
  7. Do your kid suffer from insomnia?
  8. Do your kid have low muscle tone?
  9. Do your kid experience discomfort in the joints?
  10. Is your kid easily fatigued ?

If you answered yes to most of these questions, you need to balance Vata.

For me in DHRUVA’s case all the answers turned to be a big YES..

so decided to reduce his VAAT,kept on reading books and various articles and came on below conclusion which i have been following since last 5 months and have seen remarkable changes in him..All vaat problems have dissapered with massage and diet control and he is feeling better..all Autism features are gone now..

After five months of treatment for my son Dhruva:

  • Sensory problems improved by 50%; touch improved by 70%
  • Autistic behavior decreased by 70%;
  • Social skills increased and Dhruva is more affectionate
  • Receptive language increased
  • Parenting stress decreased by 90%

and if i follow this for two years :

    • There will be 100% recovery of the sense of touch
    • The average decrease of autism severity will be 80%
    • Over 50% of high-functioning children moved off the spectrum

Vata out of Balance

“Tatra ruksho laghu sheetah, khara sukshmaschalo nilah”
The qualities of Vata are dry, light, cool, rough, subtle, and mobile.

This Sanskrit line lists the main qualities of vata and provides a key to understanding what it means to have a predominantly vata prakriti. The main qualities of vata are dry, light, cool, rough, subtle, and mobile( HYPERACTIVE). So, having a vata-predominant prakriti means that these qualities express themselves generously throughout your mental, emotional, and physical make up. A vata-predominant individual’s strengths and weaknesses both reflect these qualities.

Their energy comes in bursts and they are likely to experience sudden bouts of fatigue. Vatas kids typically have dry skin and hair and cold hands and feet.

  • In excess vaat type, the dry and rough qualities may manifest themselves as dry or brittle skin, lips, hair, nails, or bones , as constipation, or as feeling “dry” emotionally.
  • They sleep lightly and their digestion can be sensitive. When the Vata dosha becomes imbalanced, it manifests in the body as weight loss, constipation, hypertension, arthritis, weakness, restlessness, and digestive challenges.
  • Vatas kids love excitement and new experiences. They are quick to anger but also to forgive. When Vatas are in balance, kids are energetic, creative, and flexible. They also take initiative and are lively conversationalists. When unbalanced, they are prone to worry and anxiousness and often suffer from insomnia. When they feel overwhelmed or stressed, their response is, “What did I do wrong?”
  • The “light” quality may manifest itself as giving you a lanky physique but excess lightness may manifest as being underweight, having low muscle tone, light bones, insomnia, or feeling “spacey” or insecure.
  • The cold quality of vata may lead you to feel cold more easily than others around you, have cold hands and feet, and crave warmth.
  • The subtle quality may express itself as being introverted, creative, and having an active fantasy life.
  • The mobile quality (HYPERACTIVE) may lead to a healthy ability to “multi-task” or, in excess, to scattered attention, a fidgety tendency, tremors, and nervousness. It may manifest as extremes; as in being very tall or very short or being drastically different weights at different times in your life.

Prana Vata: Worries, overactive mind, sleep problems, difficulty breathing.
Udana Vata: Dry coughs, sore throats, earaches, general fatigue.
Samana Vata: Slow or rapid digestion, gas, intestinal cramps, poor assimilation, weak tissues.
Apana Vata: Intestinal cramps, menstrual problems, lower back pain, irregularity, diarrhea, constipation, gas.
Vyana Vata: Dry or rough skin, nervousness, shakiness, poor blood flow, stress-related problems.

Vata Governs

Prana Vata: The senses, creative thinking, reasoning, enthusiasm, leader of all 15 categories of Vata, Pitta and Kapha.
Udana Vata: Quality of voice, memory, movements of thought.
Samana Vata: Movement of food through digestive tract.
Apana Vata: Elimination of wastes, sexual function, menstrual cycle.
Vyana Vata: Blood flow, heart rhythm, perspiration, sense of touch.

Qualities of Vata:

  • Cold
  • Light
  • Dry
  • Irregular
  • Rough
  • Moving
  • Quick
  • Changeable

If Vata dosha predominates, movement and change are characteristic of kids nature what we call as Hyperactivity in AUTISM. kids tend to always be on the go, with an energetic and creative mind.

Tips for Balancing Vata

  • Diffuse calming vaat aroma oil in the environment.
  • ABHYANGA (daily Ayurveda massage with sesame oil as carrier oil and aroma oil).
  • Warm temperatures.
  • Warm, cooked fresh foods (less raw foods).
  • Early bedtime, lots of rest.
  • Favor warm, oily, heavy foods and sweet, sour, and salty tastes.
  • Reduce light, dry, cold foods and pungent, bitter and astringent tastes.
  • Regular daily routine.
  • Avoid stimulants.
  • Regular, daily elimination.
  • Stay warm in cold, windy weather.

Vata is cold, light, irregular, dry, and always changing. To balance Vata, make choices that bring warmth, stability, and consistency to your life. Try to get to bed before 10 p.m., wake up by 6 a.m., and eat your meals at regular times.

Avoid becoming chilled. Wear adequate clothing appropriate for the season and keep your head covered when the weather is cold.

Perform a daily massage using warmer, heavier oils like sesame and almond.

Stick with light exercise that enhances balance and flexibility. Take care not to push yourself too far and exceed the limits of your energy. Beneficial activities for Vatas include:

  • Yoga
  • Walking
  • Short hikes
  • Light bicycling
  • Light tennis
  • Golf
  • Dance
  • Aerobics

Natural ginger ENZYME. Fresh ginger root is beneficial and can be used frequently. During the cool weather, give a small teaspoon on ginger juice with a pinch of black pepper and pinch of long pepper once in a day.it make digestion v good and motion passes in one go..i give this juice to DHRUVA daily..during summer you can reduce the quantity to 5 drops…

Favor soothing, calming music.

Touch and be touched regularly by the people you love, and schedule regular MASSAGE TREATMENT.

Favor warm colors in your clothing and environment such as earth colors, pastels, browns, and warm yellows.

Favor aromas that are sweet, heavy, and warm. Examples include rose, , sandalwood, lavender, bay, cinnamon, citrus, cloves,pine, sage, and vanilla.

Vata-Pacifying Diet

  • Eat smaller quantities of food, but not more than kid you can digest easily.
  • Sweeteners. GUD and HONEY are good (in moderation) for pacifying Vata.
  • Grains. Rice is very good. Reduce intake of barley, corn, millet, buckwheat, rye and oats.
  • Fruits. Favor sweet, sour, or heavy fruits, such as oranges, bananas, avocados, grapes, cherries, peaches, melons, berries, plums, pineapples, mangos and papayas. Reduce dry or light fruits such as apples, pears, pomegranates, cranberries, and dried fruits.
  • Vegetables. Beets, cucumbers, carrots, asparagus and sweet potatoes are good. They should be cooked, not raw. The following vegetables are acceptable in moderate quantities if they are cooked, especially with ghee or oil and Vata-reducing spices: peas, green leafy vegetables, , cauliflower,and potatoes. It’s better to avoid sprouts ,broccoli and cabbage.
  • Spices. Cardamom, cumin, ginger, cinnamon, salt, cloves, mustard seed and small quantities of black pepper are acceptable.
  • All nuts are good.
  • Beans. Reduce all beans, except for tofu and mung dhal.
  • Oils. SESAME oil especially reduce VAAT..
  • For non-vegetarians, use fresh, organic chicken, seafood, and eggs.(note please do not give eggs and mutton or chicken in same day..if giving egg in a day do not give chicken or mutton that day and quantity should not be more than 50 gm a day.mutton liver or chicken liver 50 gm a day is very beneficial as it contains all the nutrients..and do buy only tender and good quality chicken and mutton and fresh fish.Try giving clear soup of mutton and chicken and fried fish)

Now MOMMIES Lets Come To Main TOPIC OF THE DAY ABHAYANGA

ABHAYANGA

Abhyanga is the anointing of the body with oil. Often infused with herbs and usually warm, the oil is massaged into the entire body before bathing. It can be beneficial for maintaining health and is used therapeutically for certain disorders like AUTISM And ADHD. Abhyanga can be incorporated into a routine appropriate for almost everyone.

The Sanskrit word sneha means both “oil” and “love,” and the effects of abhyanga are similar to being saturated with love. Both experiences can give a deep feeling of stability, warmth and comfort. Sneha—oil and love—is sukshma, or “subtle.” This allows it to pass through minute channels in the body and penetrate deep layers of tissue.

Ayurveda teaches that there are seven dhatus, or layers of tissue in the body. Each is successively more concentrated and life-giving. It is taught that for the effects of sneha to reach to the deepest layer,a 25-minute massage is the suggested minimum amount of time.

Benefits of External Oleation

  • improves low muscle tone
  • improves DIGESTION (GUT problem)
  • Benefits sleep patterns (insominia)
  • Benefits dry skin
  • Strengthens the body’s IMMUNITY
  • Imparts a firmness to the limbs
  • Imparts tone and vigor to the dhatus (tissues) of the body
  • Stimulates the internal organs of the body, increasing circulation and good digestion
  • Pacifies vata and pitta
  • Imparts softness, strength and color to the body
  • Bestows good vision

HOW TO MASSAGE

Baby Massage: A Step-By-Step Guide To Do It Safely

Start your baby massage with the following setup:

  • Sit on a bed or soft carpeted floor with a towel in front of you. You can also place a towel on a table to massage your little one while you stand. The towel helps absorb excess oil.
  • Maintain a comfortable room temperature. During winters, ensure that the room is warm and during summers make sure there is ample circulation of cool and fresh air in the room. Babies do feel warm quickly and tend to become cranky.
  • Lighting in the room is important and use as much natural light as possible.
  • You can choose to massage your baby with or without the nappy, but you can loosen it when massaging his tummy. Massaging without nappy may increase the risk of accidental soiling, but it also ensures that you massage every part of his body.

Let’s now see how to massage a baby in the right way. Here is a step-by-step guide:

Step 1 – Seeking the permission:

The first step is to take your baby’s ‘permission’ since you would not like to give him a massage when he is not interested. when i started massaging Dhruva he resisted a lot but when he felt the calming effect he now brings oil bottle to me and tells me to massage him..

The simple way to do this is by taking some oil in your palms and rubbing it first in your both hand so that oil gets avbsorbed in hands of massager then massage gently on the baby’s tummy and behind his ears, and observe his body language. If he resists being touched or grumbles and cries when massaging, then it is probably not the right time, yet. If he shows positive signs and seems okay with what you are doing, then you can go ahead with the massage.

Keep in mind that, initially, your baby may seem uncomfortable with the massage as it is a new experience. But as he gets used to it, he is less likely to resist it and instead tends to enjoy it.

Step 2 – Massaging the legs:

  1. Start with the baby’s feet. Rub some drops of oil on your palms and begin massaging the baby’s soles. Massage the heels up to the toes with your thumbs. Then, using your palm, stroke the bottom and top of the baby’s foot. Slowly, make circles with your thumb all over the bottom of each foot and then to the toes. Do not pull any toe like they do in adult foot massage. Instead, lightly massage each toe right to the tip. This will help stimulate nerve endings.
  1. Lift one of the legs and make gentle strokes on the ankle and slowly extend it towards the thighs. Gently stroke from the foot up to the thigh. You can also massage both the legs at once if your baby is calm and relaxed.
  1. You end the leg massage by gently grasping the thighs with both your hands. Slowly stroke down from thigh to the foot, like how you would wring a towel.

Step 3 – Moving to the arms:

  1. After the legs have been massaged, the arms should be massaged. The pattern of massaging is quite similar to the legs. Hold the baby’s hands and make circular strokes on the palms. Slowly make small strokes on the baby’s fingers moving towards the tips of the fingers.
  1. Turn his hand around and now gently massage the back of his hand with straight strokes towards the wrist. Then, gently massage his wrists in circular motions, like putting on bangles.
  1. Move your strokes slowly towards his forearm and then towards the upper arm. Massage entire arm with gentle circular motions as if you are wringing a towel.

Step 4 – Chest and shoulder massage:

  1. Make gentle strokes in tandem from the left and right shoulder towards the chest of the baby in upward direction. You can then trace your hand back to the shoulder. Repeat the motion gently.Next, place both your hands at the center of your baby’s chest and rub outwards from the body – towards the lateral side.
  1. Make gentle strokes outwards from the bottom of the sternum, the chest bone, across the chest, as if tracing a heart shape.

Step 5 – Now the back:

  1. It is now time to turn your baby around and massage his back. Place your baby outstretched on his tummy with his hands at the front and not on the sides.
  1. Place your fingertips on the baby’s upper back and trace clockwise circles while slowly moving the strokes towards his neck in upward direction from buttock toward shoulders..
  1. You then place your index finger and middle finger on either side of the upper spine and very gently move the fingers all the way to the buttocks. Repeat the strokes a few times. Do not place the fingers on the spine. Instead, place two fingers on either side of the spinal groove and run them down.

Step 6 – Massaging face and head:

  1. Massaging the face and head can be challenging since babies tend to move a lot. But it is as important as massaging the other parts of the body. Begin by placing the tip of your index finger at the center of your baby’s forehead and slowly stroking along the outline of his face towards his chin. From the chin, move your finger towards his cheeks and massage his cheeks gently in a circular motion. Repeat the strokes a few times.
  1. After massaging the face, start massaging the scalp with the fingertip like you are shampooing the baby’s hair. Use gentle pressure from your fingertip and do not apply any extra pressure since the baby’s skull is delicate.
  1. You can even massage the baby’s forehead gently by moving your fingers outwards from the center of the forehead.

Step 7 – Finally Time for tummy massage

    1. and finally comes the kid’s stomach. Remember, this is a delicate area, and therefore you must avoid even the slightest of pressures. You start your stroke from the top of the belly right below the chest bone. Place your palm gently below the chest bone and make clockwise circular strokes across the belly – all around the belly button. Do not apply any pressure and let your hand gently glide across the belly.
    1. Continue the circular motions in clockwise direction while avoiding the belly button. In young babies, the belly button/navel can be sensitive and delicate since they would have recently shed their umbilical cord stub.

Massage the baby’s shoulder blades with gentle clockwise circular strokes. Make same gentle strokes at the baby’s lower back and buttocks. End the massage with this last stroke. Apart from the above-mentioned baby massage techniques, there are other effective massages for the baby that work great in certain situations or conditions.

Other Conditions Where Massage Can Be Beneficial

There could be certain medical conditions or situations where a baby can gain relief through massages. Here are some scenarios where you can consider massaging your baby to make him feel better.

1. Constipation, gas, and colic:

‘I love you’ massage is the best massage to give when your baby is suffering from constipation, gas, or is colic. Research proves that infant massage works great in easing the symptoms of colic among babies. This is a variation of the standard tummy massage that can help tackle multiple problems. Start by lying your baby on his back. Use your fingers to trace a straight line on the right side of the navel. This forms the letter ‘I’. Then place your fingers at the upper left corner of the belly to trace a horizontal stroke towards the end of the left ribcage. Trace a vertical straight line stroke, exactly like the ‘I’ stroke. This forms the letter ‘L’. Next, place your fingers at the lower left corner of the belly and trace a letter ‘U’ around the navel towards the baby’s lower left corner of the tummy. This massage helps your baby poop well and relieves him of wind pain. It is also an awesome baby tummy ache massage since the pattern of the letters in the massage follows the layout of the intestines within thus stimulating them to ease the gas and constipation, which can cause pain and discomfort to the baby.

2. Cough and congestion:

Massage can also help the baby feel better when he is suffering from congestion, cough, and cold. Here are the steps to follow:

Step 1: Start by rubbing some oil or lotion on the palm of your hand. This makes your hands warm, soothing the baby as you massage him. Rub your baby’s chest using both your hands by starting from the center to the outside using small circular strokes. Then rub the entire chest in circular motions using just one hand.

Step 2: Now, focus on the baby’s face. Here you massage the sinuses by gently running your fingertips from the inner end of the eyebrow down to the nose and then to the cheek. Repeat this motion a couple of times. This helps release any accumulated mucus present in the sinuses.

Step 3: Lastly, you massage the baby’s feet focusing primarily on the sole. Massaging the sole helps in generating heat that can help loosen the mucus within the chest.

The feeling of warmth will relieve the heavy feeling of congestion in the chest caused by cold and repeated cough.

3. Gastroesophageal reflux:

If your baby has acid reflux then he may have trouble lying flat on the ground. In such situations, place a pillow under his upper back. Place the pillow in a manner that the baby lies at 45-degree angle. Then give the baby a tummy massage with the same steps mentioned above. Regular massages in a baby with chronic reflux has been clinically-proven to reduce the symptoms and give the baby relief .

4. Hiccups:

Massage is helpful when your baby is having bouts of hiccups. Hiccups occur when the irritated nerves of the abdominal cavity cause fluttering of the diaphragm due to accumulated gas or due to excessive intake of air during breastfeeding. A massage can help de-stress the tensed diaphragm thus mitigating hiccups.

When massaging to rid your baby off hiccups, put the baby in an upright position and massage him from his lower back all the way to the shoulders in gentle circular motions. You can do this by placing the baby on his tummy. Do not apply a lot of pressure while massaging.

5. Jaundice:

You can follow the aforementioned massage procedure if the baby is suffering from jaundice. Body massage for jaundiced babies has been clinically proven to improve the defecation rate and reduce the amount of bilirubin, which is the compound that causes yellowish skin in jaundice. Massage, however, does not cure jaundice in babies. It just alleviates the symptoms and associated discomfort caused by jaundice thus making the baby feel better.

6. Vaccinations:

It may sound surprising but local massage after vaccination in infants can have significant benefits for the little one. Firstly, massaging the area around the point of injection can help relieve pain and make the baby feel better. Secondly, it helps improve the immunogenicity of some vaccines, which is the body’s ability to produce antibodies against the antigen for which the vaccine has been given. This case has been clinically proven for diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis vaccine .

Never massage directly at the point where the vaccine was injected. Instead, focus on the surrounding areas by massaging gently with soft and smooth strokes.

7. Teething:

Massaging your baby’s gums when he is teething is a great way of alleviating the pain and irritation . Simply wash your hands thoroughly and wipe them dry. Then use your clean fingers to gently massage the bottom of his gums. Do not apply any pressure nor massage the top of the gums where the tooth would erupt. Only run your fingers gently at the base of the gums and continue doing so all along his gums.

Focus on the gums at the front since that is where the first teeth would emerge. You can give this massage when you feel your baby is irritated due to teething.

How Often Should I Massage My Baby?

There is no restriction on how less or more you can massage your baby. It is great, though, to have a fixed massage routine since it helps your baby reap all the long term benefits of massage. If your baby faces certain adverse medical problems, then consult the baby’s doctor about the ideal massage routine.

Baby Massage Tips

Here are some important points to remember about massaging your baby:

  1. If at any point during the massage your baby becomes cranky, then just skip that massage step and move to the next one. If he is still irritable, then stop the massage. You can make an attempt at massaging him later when he seems more receptive to touch.
  1. Always be gentle during a massage. Never apply too much pressure on the baby’s body since his bones and tissues are very delicate. Also never massage the genitals or around the groin area.
  1. Speak, laugh, and smile while massaging your baby. When he looks at you, initiate an eye contact and do some baby talk with a smile. This will help keep him interested in the activity eventually making him more cooperative.
  1. When done, wipe away the oil on the baby’s palms and fingers using a tissue paper. This is to prevent him from accidentally ingesting the oil when he puts his fingers in his mouth. It is for this reason, choose baby massage oils that are 100% safe for babies and do not pose any health risk even on accidental ingestion.
  2. Maintain a fixed time for massage. This will help establish a routine, making a baby more comfortable during a massage.

When Should I Stop Massaging The Baby?

There is no fixed age to stop massaging. You can choose to massage the baby as long as you want. Many mothers stop the massage when their little one is completely weaned and has transitioned from a baby to a toddler.

Massage is a great way of improving the bond with your baby while also enabling him to grow better. Maintain a schedule for massage and consult your doctor in case of doubts or queries.

Some interesting facts about massage therapy..

TheABHAYAGYA massage Treatment program is based on practices used in the East for thousands of years, and has successfully treated more than a thousand children in the United States since 2003. It is a breakthrough treatment for autism in three ways::

  1. It is the first treatment to improve all aspects of autism – sensory, behavioral, social, and language
  2. It is the first treatment to be consistently effective for children with severe as well as mild autism
  3. It is the first treatment that effectively treats the sensory abnormalities in autism

We are working now to share the good news with parents and professionals and grow the organization.

ABHYANGA massage is a proven, touch-based autism treatment for children that parents perform for 45 minutes each day for up to two years to normalize sensory issues and reduce or eliminate symptoms of autism. Results are apparent after as few as 30 days of treatment. ABHYANGA for autism is unique among autism treatments because it grants children access to normal development, helps them feel comfortable and connected to others, and improves lifetime outcomes.

Autism and Aromatherapy:My Personal Journey by Sneha Narayan

Aromatherapy and Massage Therapy: Specialized Touch Therapy

  • How to massage

DHRUVA is an affectionate, 3.5 year-old boy who loves to draw and has quite sense of humour. He was diagnosed with autism when he was 3 years old.As a baby, he developed normally—but then, after he turned 2 years old, he started to display quirks. DHRUVA was shifted to two preschools because of his meltdowns, where he would flap his hands, stand on his toes, screech and cry.“We couldn’t go out to social gatherings, or even to the grocery store ” as he use to cry cry a lot..

“He hated light touch,” “tags in shirts, noises from crowds of people and bright lights in stores.

When Dhruva was 3 years old, his first occupational therapist discovered he calmed down when she gave him a firm bear hug.In 1980, autism diagnoses alone were 1 in 5,000; the most current data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicates that rate is now 1 in 88 children.Boys appear to be affected four times as much as girls.

Through the use of massage therapy,these kids’ basic need for safe, nurturing contact is met, with often wonderful results.All children require nurturing touch to thrive, and for those on the autism spectrum, specialized touch therapy is required. Using specialized touch, we are able to meet these children with care and affection where they are.Pediatric massage provides a positive experience of being touched, and the effects hold lifelong benefits.Our grand parents dadi and nani use to do this massage 4 to 5 times a day so as to make a kid strong…

Usually diagnosed by the age of 3, this complex developmental condition affects a child’s ability to develop normal language skills, form relationships or respond appropriately, and is characterized by early onset of a lack of attachment, failure to cuddle as an infant and an almost complete disassociation with the environment.

Autism, as we know it, is curable and the behaviors associated with the disorder can be corrected so that it does not persist throughout the child’s lifetime.
With 6 months of daily 2 to 3 hours of morning,night and after taking a bath massage Dhruva has gained his

  • Full Eye Contact: Every time called he looks into my eyes
  • Respond to Name: Full respond to name
  • Calming Mood Swings: No meltdowns
  • Improved Sleep : No night awakenings
  • Good Digestion: Stool is passed once and he is satisfied
  • Muscle tone Improved a lot: he can jump hurdles independently..
  • Emotions came: he now recognizes me and Rishi as his mom and dad..
  • Command following increased: listens to all my requests..
  • Immunity increased: No more cough and Cold
  • and countless benefits continues…

Touch Helps

The common belief that children with autism do not like to be touched is false.My son Dhruva loves to be massaged as many as 3 hours a day…

Autism is characterized with sensory malfunction and dysfunction of the tactile system, often making a child averse to certain sights, sounds, smells or touch.Given that children with autism have been reported to be opposed to physical contact, it is interesting that many massage therapists and parents are finding great success with the use of massage therapy for those considered to be on the spectrum.
“People with autism-spectrum disorders often struggle with increased sensitivity to sensory stimuli, including tactile stimulation, and massage provides a comforting experience of tactile stimulation while also helping to decrease pain amplification through desensitization,”

Just because a child doesn’t communicate in a way you understand,does not mean he lacks IQ points.

For me what worked as a magic was just following GFCSF diet (for convincing me to follow this Diet credit goes to Riya my friend )and massaging almost 3 hrs a day…pressing all the points and joint compression…every 2 hours..This joint compression was suggested by his therapist Komal ma’am.she is the only therapist I found in Pune who believes in making a child independent..thank u ma’am for ur guidence..
Massaging need to be done with Autistic kids morning almost 30 min then every two hour joint compression and the late at night before sleeping 30 to 45 min full body massage..

Lets us come to oil which i used and benefited a lot was Til oil (Sesame oil ) ..this oil is especially for improving muscle tone.. it can be used a in any season during summer and winter too .i use to combine this oil with Aroma essence..

I basically use khadi oil…its very good in quality and cost effective.. Rs 200 for 10ml and this oilcan be used for 1.5 months to 2 months..

AROMATHERAPY AND ITS BENEFITS

Autism has failed yet to come with one simple and official definition, but in spite of that, doctors have categorized this disease as a neurological disorder. The disease is obvious from the birth of the kid, and some people live with autism until old age. Autistic people find it difficult to be in a normal social context, because of the anxiety.And if you are wondering what do autism and aromatherapy have in common, here is the answer: aromatherapy is able to promote self esteem and calm the subjects, so that they can live an almost normal life. So if you have an autistic child and you don’t know what else to do for him, because there is no medical cure for it, you might want to try aromatherapy.

smelling-eo.jpg

For a child with autism, aromatherapy is much more than smell. Sensory enrichment can be an effective therapy for the treatment of autism, particularly among children past the toddler stage. Dhruva was benefited a lot from Aroma therapy as his eye contact started coming in just 1 week of massage i remember…was so happy that day when my son first time looked into my eyes…this method of oil making was discovered by his Dad Rishi..
mommies was in dead depression 6 months back as non of the therapies was working for my son just was wasting money in all these tests and therapy classes as much as 50 thousand in a month and Dhruva was just getting harassed and therapist just talking negative and demoralizing me all the time….but rather than spending so much money on these therapies we decided to go to the root cause of Autism and found after 1 week of day and night reading and research and discussion with our Reiki mentor that we need to focus on his intake that is food and massage his muscles to improve his muscle tone..

True aromatherapy not only delivers the relaxing benefits of fragrance, it also provides many other health benefits that are unique to each essential oil. Aromatherapy is the practice of using aromatic and volatile liquids that are extracted from plants, shrubs, flowers, trees, bushes and seeds as therapy to treat the sensory seeking in an individual who has a strong tendency to smell objects.

It is important to remember that all odors and smells tend to be alerting. Identify scents that are associated with positive activities or that child finds comforting. Vanilla, lavender, rose and sandalwood are generally felt to be calming scents while citrus, cinnamon, and mint tend to be regarded as more invigorating scents.

Many children with autism seem to need to smell everything to feed their sensory input. This may be related to the need to gain more information through a sensory channel with which they are more comfortable.Providing pleasing smells may be helpful, but it is probably more helpful to improve the other sensory systems for gaining information.
In some cases, children may look for familiar smells to calm themselves. For example, a dryer sheet, towels washed with a fragrance detergent, or a perfume. Help your child find additional calming strategies as well.

Making oil blends.. Essential oil blend

Important:Try using a glass bottle dark color preferably for making oil..

  • Til oil 50 ml use it as Carrier oil i basically use TIL SONA oil..
  • Add 6 drop Khadi Lavender oil
  • Add 4 drop Rose oil
  • Add 6 drop Sandalwood oil..

You can change the quantity of drop according to your kids liking…but dont make it too strong…

And use this oil first thing in the morning to massage …
To a lot people, aromatherapy is just about enjoying a pleasant smell. Scents actually surround us daily and can impact a child’s comfort level. These scents can vary dramatically including air fresheners, cleansers, cologne, cooking, candles, plants, and flowers.

Characteristics of different scents:

• Cinnamon, mint and citrus – Tend to be more invigorating or revitalizing (alerting)
• Vanilla, rose, lavender and Sandalwood– More relaxing and calming
• Pine – mood elevator

You can develop a calming association to certain scents by coupling a specific scent with another soothing activity. For example, always use vanilla scent when you bathe your child (if bathing is a soothing event). This may help your child learn to feel relaxed when exposed to the particular Scents..i use it for Dhruva and he enjoys it a lot…

Some children may seek out alerting scents to “wake up” their sensory system. Try to analyze the child’s olfactory preferences and how they impact their behavior.People who suffering autism especially children can react positively with a special treatment of aromatherapy. However this have to be conducted by aromatherapist

Essential oils for Autism

Here are some of the best essential oils that can combine autism and aromatherapy, and also what symptoms they affect.

Rose oil

The health benefits of rose essential oil can be attributed to its properties as an antidepressant, antiphlogistic, antiseptic, antispasmodic, antiviral, aphrodisiac, astringent, bactericidal, hepatic, laxative, nervine, stomachic, and a uterine substance.Rose oil boosts self-esteem, confidence, and mental strength while efficiently fighting depression They can be very helpful in driving away depression and Anxiety. As an antidepressant, rose oil can be given to patients with acute depression or those undergoing rehabilitation to bring positivity into their lives.

Lavender Oil

Derived from fresh lavender flowers, Lavender oil is one of the most well known essential oils. It appears to slow the activity of the central nervous system, improve sleep quality, promote better concentration.Lavender may also help fight anxiety. In one study, encapsulated lavender oil was found to be effective for generalized anxiety disorder, without sedative effects or potential for abuse.

SANDALWOOD OIL

The health benefits of sandalwood oil can be attributed to its properties as an antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, astringent, diuretic, disinfectant, emollient, expectorant, hypotensive, memory booster, sedative, and a tonic substance.

Some the other oil….can be used too

Peppermint is a well known plant, and it best to start using this one, for it must already be familiar for the autistic person. It is a neuro-simulator and it’s best used when inhaled. It can stay in the autistic’s room, and the effects will be visible within the nest two days.

Getting started with baby massage

Massage the feet and legs before moving onto the upper body.
  • Massage can be soothing for babies. Make sure the room is warm, your baby is quiet, well-rested and alert, and you’re relaxed. Try massage after a nap, when your baby is being changed or in the cot, or after a bath. You can do massage for 10-30 minutes.
  • Smooth a few drops of baby massage oil or simple moisturiser like sorbolene into your warm hands and massage the soles of baby’s feet. Use firm, gentle, slow strokes from heel to toe. Always keep one hand on baby. If you notice signs of allergic reaction to the oil, wipe it off and see your GP.
  • Do long smooth strokes up baby’s leg. Massage from ankle up to thigh and over hip. Massage both legs at once or one at a time. Avoid the genital area. Hold baby’s leg under the knee and gently press it towards the tummy to help release wind.

Massaging baby’s upper body

Massage the arms; use circular clockwise strokes for the belly; use your fingertips to massage the face.
  • Start upper body massage with your hands on baby’s shoulders. Make gentle strokes in towards the chest.
  • Massage baby’s arms by stroking from the shoulders down towards the wrists. Try not to get oil on baby’s hands. If you do, wipe his fingers clean before he sucks them.
  • If baby’s tummy feels soft, massage his belly with circular, clockwise strokes. If he gets unsettled, go on to the next step. Avoid the belly button area if baby’s cord hasn’t healed. Don’t put pressure on baby’s diaphragm (area under the lungs but above the stomach).

Massaging baby’s face and back

Massage the back of baby's body from head to toe; stop if baby is tense and not enjoying himself; massage can also take place in a cot when baby is clothed.
  • Use your finger pads to massage baby’s face. Stroke from the middle of baby’s forehead, down the outside of her face and in towards her cheeks. Massage the scalp in small circles.
  • If baby is still relaxed when you’ve finished massaging the front of her body, you can turn her onto her tummy and use long, smooth strokes from head to toe.
  • Use a soothing touch and stop the massage if your baby seems uncomfortable. Avoid massage if you’re very tense, or if your baby is upset. Make sure your fingernails are short.

“Building Life Skills through Golf”

hey mommies out there i am here with my 6th Article on outdoor Occupational therapy.

Please give the exposure much needed to the kids..never feel ashamed to take your kids to any damn place .if you give your autistic kid the exposure needed he or she can prove to be wonders as they are gifted by god to excel in one field…or many fields..

first let me clear some doubts in your mind with the name GOLF first thing comes in mind is its most expensive game..but but..its not the case i am lucky that i stay in Pune. One day accidentally visited BLUE RIDGE Golf course and to my surprise inquired in the office about the price and other stuff used for playing ..to my surprise it was genuine one so decided to play.But rather than me and Rishi liking the game and course Dhruva was so happy at the course and in the sand playing that we thought we will always be a part of this game ..its now 1.5 yrs practicing game..Dhruva has his own putter and he enjoys a lot..

Rest all the golf course are costly but when kid starts liking the place and we see positive changes in them its worth it..In this article will cover all the benefits that golf can incorporate in your kids life..

Tees and Tots: How Kids Can Benefit From Playing Golf

  • ECO THERAPY :Mental Well-Being. …
  • A Social Event. for Socialization
  • ABA THERAPY :Focusing the mind..
  • Emotional benefits Reducing Stress and Anxiety. …
  • Occupational Therapy..for improving low muscle tone
  • SAND THERAPY

mommies keep on thinking that i should make my child sit at one place and teach him whatever she wants but mommies don’t forget they are still kids sitting at one place for them is a very challenging task..you as an adult should take out ways to channelise there energy in perfect direction without pissing them off…keep your child happy and you will then see all the positive changes in them..

Golf helps to enhance their social, motor, coordination, and golf skills
Golf can be used as a vehicle to enlighten and teach children with autism the sport, skills, and fun of golf. Golf is a wonderful way for children and families to participate in a sport together..Building life skills through golf for children with autism. The vision behind playing golf is to help children with autism to develop life and social skills through golf.
Golf course helps kids feel happy and included and it even teaches a lot about life. I tried a lot of other sports for my son Dhruva but he didn’t like it when people were unkind to each other or if it was too noisy or he didn’t understand what to do as part of the team.

In golf, there is something called “etiquette” which means you are expected to be kind and respectful to each other and there are specific rules about how to behave and what to say.
Playing golf is great fun, but also offers a wide range of mental and physical benefits, some of which are highlighted below:

ECO THERAPY: Mental Well being Mental Awareness

Eco therapy, otherwise known as ‘green exercise’ which emphasizes the importance of combining exercise with an outdoor activity can be applied to golf. Golf courses, even those in the city, are usually situated in attractive locations with green rolling hills, lakes and well maintained fairways.

It is seen as a given that physical exercise has many benefits – in particular on our physical health, but aside from calories burnt, we tend to forget that sport can also do wonders for our mental health. Golf is a perfect example – it promotes social interaction, requires concentration and focus (which is very much needed fr our kids)and is played outdoors(so lots of vitamin D for kids), often in attractive lush GREEN settings. Furthermore, it is a sport that is suitable for almost everyone due to its moderate activity level.
A study conducted by the University of Essex found that undergoing exercise in rural and pleasant urban landscapes produces a greater positive effect on one’s self-esteem (WHICH IS USUALLY VERY LOW IN AUTISTIC KIDS)than just exercising alone, for example in therapy classes or therapies conducted at home.

Dhruva has his small putter and he makes sure ball goes inside the hole..its acts as a therapy for my eyes watching him play..love u my son….

P_20180524_124834

SOCIALIZING the kids Parent child interaction..

Golfing has always been a social sport, and that benefit is not reserved for the adults who enjoy the game. With a relatively low barrier to entry, individuals of any age can step onto a course and play, making it a sport well-suited to demographic diversity that can introduce children to a gamut of social interactions. Golf also offers a perfect venue for positive parent/child interactions which is much needed in our case. It can be a great way to encourage quality time and bonding between a parent and child, which can set the stage for a lasting relationship.

P_20180524_132337

This sport also requires that children mind their manners and conduct themselves respectfully while on the course. In addition to etiquette, golf helps children learn to problem solve, use numbers, and be confident in their abilities while also improving on their weaknesses.

Golf is a sport that promotes sociability; kids golfers often team up in pairs or play with up to 3 other kids. This provides kids with the opportunity to meet other kids, make friends and enhance relationships and avoid feelings of isolation and loneliness.

ABA Therapy :Focusing the mind

Autistic kids are generally very hyperactive so focusing there mind at on job is quite difficult but with golf its the best place to channelize there energy in a positive direction.

mommies keep on thinking that i should make my child sit at one place and teach him what ever she wants but mommies dont forget they are still kids sitting at one place for them is a very challenging task..you as an adult should take out ways to channelize there energy in perfect direction without pissing them off…

The Killings worth and Gilbert study found that when kids minds were constantly wandering, they reported a feeling of being less happy. Being able to focus on the task at hand means the mind is engaged and less likely to drift to negative or stressful thoughts, making a round of golf the perfect way to unwind ..

P_20180524_132419

Golf requires a tremendous amount of concentration – keeping an eye on where the hole is in relation to the ball, the amount of force required to hit the ball and getting the trajectory right to score that elusive hole in one.

At present Dhruva just takes his putter and keeps walking across the lush green course and feeling relaxed..this is the only place where he enjoys being there away from noisy places..and calming his self..His dad makes a point every time to involve him to putt the ball and he likes doing it…

Emotional Therapy: Reducing Stress and Anxiety. …

Golf is a great way to encourage the home-bound child to get out and spend a day in nature having some good old-fashioned fun on the green, and it can offer many lessons to today’s kids generation Several parallels can be drawn between this game and the challenges and successes inherent in society. Golf requires the child to practice emotional management, positivity, proper planning, clear focus, good social skills, and perseverance. It also helps them assess both the task at hand as well as the bigger picture. As children learn how to conduct themselves properly while they are on the course, they are also learning how to become happy, healthy, successful members of society.

Children require development of their emotional fitness just as much as those physical and social counterparts. Golf helps develop the youth’s emotional health by encouraging self-improvement and challenging them to persevere through frustrations.

Because golf is a game of self-improvement, it requires the player to focus on their performance, and it eliminates the opportunity to easily ascribe shortfalls to team members. This can help instill autonomy and responsibility, and nurture the self-confidence that is so vital to living a long and happy life.

OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY for improving low muscle tone

Although golf is seen as a moderate form of exercise, in an 18-hole game, kids can walk more than 10,000 steps or around 5 miles – which quickly adds up over time! The distance walked is important as at least 150 minutes of moderate activity a week – in the case of golf, this is easily achieved in a single round.
Likewise, wrist and body flexibility is important in golf – being able to twist your body and having the strength and power to hit the ball long distances is necessary to play well.
In a world of technology, it’s easy for children to stop playing outside and start spending more and more time indoors, in front of screens. This can make it challenging for parents who are trying to get their kids to participate in more physical activities. Golf can provide an alternate means of enjoyment outside of the realm of video games. And because it’s open to all skill levels, it has the benefit of being an easy choice for children that might otherwise shy away from sports. As a non-contact and low-impact sport, it doesn’t require a child to be the strongest, fastest, or biggest in order to be successful or enjoy themselves.

SAND THERAPY

P_20170418_175436

Kids use creativity to express feelings,which release anti-anxiety chemicals in the brain. These chemicals are opioids and oxytocins. They create the feeling of being safe. They reduce that of anger and aggression. Autistic kids thus begin to feel calm, and psychologically strong. They progressively gain a deep sense of well being, resulting in their immune system becoming stronger. Furthermore, they progressively sense that there is meaning in life. Learning capacity too increases.

Sand play is a wonderful treatment modality for children, because it takes place in the child’s own natural language of symbols.Children with autism lack social skills such as expressive language, which is a strong predictor of autism in children.
Sand Therapy is non-directive and is a highly visual approach that crosses language and cultural barriers; it provides a tactile approach that enables children to make sense of their own world in the sand

As an observer of Sand play Therapy, it may appear that your child is simply playing in the sand. This is not so. The sand play becomes a setting for children, adolescents and adults to gain a different or new perspective on a situation.

The process connects with unconscious material, allowing the child to ‘sort’ out and make sense of experiences and information. By creating a scene in the sand using symbols (small figurines, toys, ornaments, shells, rocks) a child can regain a sense of strength or hope.

will cover this topic later in an article on Sand play..

will now conclude my article...by just requesting all parents just move out of your house with your kid of course and let them live there life…let them explore the things they like to do..never impose your dreams on kids either a normal kid or Autistic kid…mommies if you challenge yourself then no one can stop you to make your child come out of spectrum…
The quote “a healthy body makes a healthy mind” is therefore very appropriate: the fitter and more physically able you are, the more positive you feel in yourself, and the happier you feel.

come on mommies get charged up and geared up and make the move…

love u all…

Foods to avoid in VATA PACIFIER DIET OR GFCGSF diet…

Foods to avoid in VATA PACIFIER DIET or GFCGSF diet…

hey friends here i am with my third article..on what to avoid in GFCFSF diet(Gluten free,Casein free,sugar Free) diet…

If you decide to follow a GFCF diet you will become an
expert in reading ingredient labels.
A gluten-free/casein-free/Sugar free diet is also known as the GFCFSF diet. …
it’s reasonable to ask what harm could result from trying a casein-gluten-free diet. what i have found in my 1.5 year journey is Autism is due to food intake..and not any other reason..
DUE TO HYPERSENSITIVE BODY OF OUR KIDS ADULTERATED FOOD BECOMES AN IRRITANT IN THERE BODY AND THEY BEHAVE SO UNUSUAL..AND EATING THIS FOOD FOR PROLONGED TIME LEADS TO AUTISTIC BEHAVIOR…
sharing some incidents
Incident no 1
1.I was using Ashirvaad Select Superior Sharbati atta (wheat)
Image result for ashirwad super select
packet since like 8 years a damm good follower of this atta ,being the most expensive atta Rs55 /kg thought this is the best i am giving to my child.
I keep daily records of Dhruva’s intake and changes in his behavior since like 7 months in my dairy this is the first thing early morning i do..takes 5 min time but its worth it… so it was v easy for me each day to rule out the culprit.. will later share the format of the record to maintain..
its my request to all the parents to keep a record of intake you are giving to your child as each child in spectrum is different and in 1 week time you will understand which food is personally effecting your child the most.. and Triggering his behaviors..
The moment i use to give wheat chapati to Dhruva he starts jumping on my sofa for like 2 hrs he became so restless and irritated..but same though as i am giving best of best and most costly wheat to my son then why is it so…was in a very distress situation but god helped me that day itself…
Suddenly received a message one-day on whats app it was about this so called Ashirvaad superior atta. Went through this video and got shocked..

Ashirved Atta reality video
https://youtu.be/N4mm40L0-Gk

then understood the reason why Dhruva got so irritated after eating wheat Chapati…
Guys i got v angry people can go to such extent to earn money…they are least bothered about peoples health just behind money money and money…i had 5kg new packet of this wheat so immediately threw away in dustbin and went to buy wheat and got it grinded immediately .
The whet i got the wheat grinded in front of me and came home and tested it to my surprise it was fully soluble in water friends…
Being from North part of India just had wheat all these years,so was so much worried as to what to give now to my son i still wanted to avoid wheat..so asked my friend Riya ..she to is mother of 5 yrs corageous kid Garv was in spectrum but seems v normal to me at present she too is a hard core follower of GFCFSF diet..she solved the biggest problem of my life ,taught me to make jowari roti...
as jowari roti is litter bit harder and coarser side so my mom with 1 week of experimenting she found out ways to make soft and soluble Jowari roti..so my breakfast and Dinner problem. As short of time will share the video of how to prepare jowari roti and sugar free Tomato chutney to go with it…this roti can me mixed with vegetables to keep it interesting for kid to love it..put spinach ,beetroot ,carrot,beans,cucumber,onion ,tomato,dhaniya patta and many more..and cut them in various shapes to make it look good.
if your kid loves nachani atta (v famous in Maharashtra) Rice, flax seed you can add all of these and Daal(chana daal ,tuar daal,Moong daal etc) too and can make multigrain atta..but make a point get it grinded in front of you itself
Gluten is found in wheat (including durum and bulgar), oats, rye, barley, millet, kamut and spelt and in foods made from these grains, including breads, pastas, cereals, cookies and crackers, vinegars, sauces, soups, artificial colors and flavorings, some spices, food starches and even some candies.
But thousands of processed foods contain ingredients made from gluten or casein, so staples such as hot dogs, lunch meat, bottled salad dressings, jarred sauces, and even some margarine may not be allowed.
all these foods should be avoided strictly…
2.The 2nd obvious culprits is milk, cheese, yogurt, ice cream….GHEE
Casein is in dairy products, including milk, butter, cheese, sour cream, yogurt, ice cream and is added to some margarine. Casein in the form of caseinate is often added to soy cheese and hot dogs for texture. It is not just cow’s milk that contains casein but also milk from all mammals, including goats, sheep and human breast milk. Products that are lactose-free are not necessarily casein-free.
some people were asking me about camel milk i have never given this milk t Dhruva so i am unaware of its pros and cons.but sharing
Wikipedia link,may be it will help..
you an give calcium suppelements tokids as we are removing majour cource.My doc suggested calcimax..
Incident no 2..

one day my friends came over my place for dinner and i have prepared the most famous north Indian cuisine LITTI CHOKHA so this time i was very particular with Dhruva’s litti .Made it out of jowari. i served him jowari litti and chutney and brinjal bharta..this time i was so sure he will enjoy his food.but to my surprise as i dipped the litti in GHEE and gave to Dhruva to eat. he had it, there was no smell in ghee ,was again using Govind Ghee since last 7 days so never thought of any adulteration in this ghee

but Dhruva became v hyperactive and restless i remember he started jumping on the sofa for 2 hrs ,crying yelling and biting,head banging which i had never experienced with him..As ghee was the only culprit so with immediate effect stopped Ghee…
and next day he was absolutely fine..all behavior were gone..
it seem they have mixed Dalda or any unwanted oil palmoline oil,Safflower oil,Cotton seed oil..etc which are v harmful..etc.and what not..the quality of ghee was very bad.no taste in ghee no smell and it was not solidifying also which is one property of ghee..half bottle was full of oil and was floating it seemed refine oil was floating on ghee..
now comes the third culprit
Sugar
A sugar-free diet (or no-sugar diet) is one that typically limits all sources of added sugar (like soda(triggers hyperactivity immediately), snack bars and desserts, Sugar found in artificial juice ,sugar candies,kids favorite LOLLY-POP ,Chocolates
are removed from the child’s daily food intake.
Incident No 3
With GFCF diet for 1 month now Dhruva became quiet manageable so thought of taking him to a restaurant .we went there ordered our food and Dhruva”s favorite FRESH LIME SODA..
immediately after drinking the soda he became v hyper in the restaurant itself..every body was starring us..we came back home rushing and gave him coconut water and he went to pee twice and thrice and he was fine the next day..
so ruled out Soda and all the air rated drinks from his diet.. too ..
Removing sugar from diet is very benificial it leads to
  • Reduced risk for inflammatory digestive conditions, such as irritable bowel disease (IBD), and intolerance to wheat/gluten many also notice less constipation, diarrhea, stomach bloating or acid reflux.
  • Better protection against other common conditions related to inflammation, weight gain and nutrient deficiencies like hemorrhoids, kidney stones, peptic ulcer, PMS, autoimmune diseases, poly cystic ovarian syndrome, and neurological diseases like dementia or Alzheimer’s disease
In order to reduce your sugar intake and deal with cravings for sweets or refined carbohydrates — a very common problem among most parents looking to improve their kids eating habits — there are five main steps I recommend taking, which are discussed in more detail below:
  1. Eat more fiber.Make child eat more fiber..
  2. Include more protein in your diet.
  3. Eat more healthy fats.
  4. Read ingredient labels carefully when grocery shopping in order to know just what you’re consuming, since most parents don’t realize how much sugar they’re really eating or drinking.
FERMENTED FOOD
Will wind up this article by adding no fermented products such as Idli Dosa as they are prepared by fermenting them..
you can give freshly grinded Idli Dosa but strictly not fermented one .
the moment i use to give him fermented food Dhruva would start laughing without any cause..again gave him coconut water and all unwanted substance from his body would flush out and he was fine..later..
Certainly, dietary changes can be worth investigating and trying, and many parents report improvements in behavior.
Currently i am working with 6 kids and all are getting better day by day only with diet..out of these 2 are those parents who cannot afford Rs1000/45 min therapies class.

so mommies do give it a try..i can say with my experience 60% child recovers from spectrum..

Do bear with me as i get only 5 am to 7 am time to post these articles.. that to 2 days as i go for strength training by PRC PUNE rest days left as i have to complete this blog so that my aim to take out all the kids from spectrum is achieved and also to complete 42 km marathon one day…

VATA PACIFIER DIET or GFCFSF diet plus Preservative free :key to pull your child out of Autism Spectrum Disorder…

Best Diet for Kids..VATA PACIFIER DIET or GFCFSF diet…and i add PRESERVATIVE free diet toobalanced-diet-meats
Hello friends,
Today’s topic is GFCGSF diet plus Preservative free also
Sharing my experience ..the best thing which i followed was a GFCGSF(Gluten free Caisine Free Sugar free) diet for Dhruva…

Later will cover topics
1.Joint compression for low muscle tone
2.Massage therapy for improving muscle tone
3.Aroma Therapy
4.Full day activity to keep kids busy..
5.Mouth massage…
and many more coming..

Actually this diet is not only fantastic for our kids but very healthy for normal kids who too are little hyperactive in there generation …and most important point since no milk and milk products chocolate too is included, no wheat and no sugar is strictly followed so plz mommies don’t have a guilt feeling that you are not able to give paneer or cheese to your kid..
As i am the member of PUNE RUNNING CLUB too so have seen many ultra runners on GFCFSF diet..The best sports players out there in world follow this diet so believe me mommies you are giving your child “the best gift of health” in this adulterated food world..
just give him/her ADULTERATION free,Food without
Preservative, No junk food,No packet food..No Stale food(means do not keep the food overnight in fridge and serve next day to the kid)everythingfreshly prepared at home by mommies itself..try avoiding food maid by Maids..but incase no option for working ladies have to depend on maids and cook try training them…in that case…
This diet is little difficult to follow as mommies out there have to cook separately for kid but believe me girls its worth trying..i have given Ayurveda treatment wasted 1.5 lakh and result was zero improvement,spent 50 thousand on homeopathy treatment at Mumbai again result Zero… can share the name of doctors on personal messages. for 6 months was misguided by 5 to 6 therapist of Pune. Had they would have given best therapies to my son would have started talking at present .
Was into dead depression even went to a psychiatrist to get medicine as had 1.5 month of sleepless night was feeling so help less as i was not able to lessen the pain of Dhruva..so trust me mommies follow the diet religiously and you will start seeing all the positive changes in 1 to 2 weeks time…it was my call that day i came back from psychiatrist clinic thinking if i would have taken the medicine then would have slept for 2 yrs and what about Dhruva…so mommies take your call and start working out things…around your kitchen…
Making atta chapati for family and jowari for kid,daily Tomato chuttney aur sauce as you say. is dificult girls butits worth tryingThe amount of tension and depression we are facing now will vanish like a storm..when each day you will see good changes in our kids that feeling is not expressible…i don’t have words for that best feeling child will break the loop and will come out shinning…
Due to this diet firstly
1. Hyperactivity came down..
2.As was feeling good inside his body so stopped crying..
3.As he was quiet his sitting tolerance improved..
4.Eye contact was fantastic
5.Became more attentive and quiet.
6.Started responding to his name in earlier days of diet out of 10, 5 times he responded to his name now its 10 out of 10.
7.Reflex improved
8.Mouthing almost gone.
9.No traits of toe walking..
10.Hands stimming reduced
11.Best part Command following..increased he can give water to plants brings remote..gives me phone when it rings,keep his plates after eating,puts transh in dustbit and beauty is he throws dry trash and wet trash separately..

12.has become vv social he bid us bye and goes with all are relatives and friends..
13.Recognizes all persons in family maid too

14.His vocab is of 250 words and more started speaking also..
i followed this diet religiously means like we follow our respective gods likewise need to follow diet and its 5.5 month now for me and Dhruva is out of Spectrum with only speech delay..and words have started coming..one by one..
what i have experienced is Autism is due to this Adulterated food which we eat during the pregnancy and later give to our children..just monitor the intake of your child and he will be absolutely fine..
At present my whole house is preservative free no tomato ketchup also since last five months.Daily morning i prepare fresh tomato chutney to go with all the chapatis and snacks whole day ..will later share the recipe..no preservative for our kids class 1, 2, 3 whatever..
Countless benefits of GFCGSF diet bcoz of this diet i have broken the infinite loop of distress and depression and not feeling hopeless and helpless and its been 5.5 months now i am following and my son is out of spectrum from moderate ..autism to out of spectrum

You can throw all of the supplements, medication, etc But if you don’t get the basics right, then you’re essentially wasting your time.…And this is because you are missing the bigger picture. please avoid Sugar and all sugar products to bring down hyperactivity….in children..
Allowed food..

1. Jowari,(nachni , raggi soya atta) with tomato chatni freshly prepared daily..Get the stuff grinded in a mill in front of your eyes..in Maharashtra there are separate grinding machine for jowari and wheat..no mixing of wheat..
2.All the vegetables except brinjal ,cabbage and and big no to broccoli..cauliflower you can give in afternoon but big no at the dinner time..

3.All the seasonal fruits.

Image result for fruit basket

.if the child is sweet tooth then fruits are the best option rather than giving biscuits and chocolate . some well wishers of mine even told me that giving mango and chikoo as they are more sweet can trigger hyperactivity but we found that sweet in natural form is the best no side effects.. Go for Mangoes,Small banana (elaichi kela)if available good ones then prefer otherwise big banana is fine..,Watermelon in whole form or juice,

Muskmelon,Grapes,Orange , Mausami , chikoo and
Apple of course.”an apple day keeps the doctor away” but need to be v choosy in apples go for 4015 USA apple as they are not mushy (bhusbhusa) is the term in Hindi..its kadak. There is wax coating i know just dip the apple in little warm water for a minute or 2 and your are done..apple is ready to eat..Dhruva only likes this apple..as its very good in taste.These apples are costly but rather than spending loads of money in therapy its better focus on child’s intake.Intake is the culprit in my case and all the other kids i am working with…

rest all fruits you can give like kiwi,mandarin,etc available outside India.
4.One coconut water daily…by fail….it is to improve taste buds of our kids and flush out all the toxins in body..
no powder sachet coconut water only fresh coconut..

5.Make fresh soup daily(Beetroot,Beans,Carrot,Spinach,1-2 garlic,little ginger,Tomato) this soup daily will eradicate Iron ,vitamin A deficiency which will finally help in less mouthing good eye contact..improvement in teething…
6.Non veg compulsory to improve muscle tone….most vegetarian children are prone to autism and mothers who are vegetarian during the pregnancy have higher chances to deliver week baby..try getting the B 12 test it will definitely be on lower side.
1 egg daily,Mutton paya soup twice a week,chicken liver 50 gm only please buy good quality Chicken Saguna brand is the one i preferrer.

Now s a days the so called “Desi Chicken” is also hybrid form so if you really get village desi chicken then its fantastic..once a week,Mutton liver only 50 gm strictly once a week.try buying mutton from a good and trusted shop.Mutton liver or Paya of 6 to 10 kg “KHASSI” what we call best mutton is the best..
Point to be noted.since its too hot in India avoid non veg just give clear soup that to only twice a week.
and no non-veg at dinner time..try giving omelette in breakfast and chicken and mutton in afternoon itself. After 4pm no egg chicken or mutton.
most important point do not give chicken/mutton/fish and egg same day. Egg one day then rest other day…
7.Now let me cover the most difficult part of mommies out here..big question”Snack may kya doon” so you can give roasted Makhana,Banana chips,Potato and rice wafers ,Besan and besan ke sare recipies..besan chilla pakoda..besan pizza too can be made at home very easy and good snack for lunch box too..soya ,nachni, jowari ,raggi sticks..all of these can be made at home itself..

Image result for kela chips

8. Now let me come to Oil to be used basically for preparing jowari roti use “TIL ka TEL” also called Sesame oil…if possible mommies go for cold-pressed oil as it retains-all the good properties..of this oil..will in later post tell all you guys why we are using til ka tel..rest all the vegetables can be cooked in sunflower oil..my personal experience Sundrop is the best oil for children as well as adults..

Image result for sundrop oil
kacchi dhani oil for northeast people
Groundnut oil in Maharashtra
as suits you…
Do not use OLIVE oil as it is too costly so is adulterated..My personal experience i got a very good brand olive oil (Borges) and the moment i gave this to Dhruva he became hyperactive.. and restless
Give rice bran oil thats also good but use the best quality in the market..and most important when you buy oil from supermarket please look at the content of oil behind the bottle..my personal experience one day i bought my mistake sunflower oil other that SUNDROP and later when i was reading the content to my surprise it was Safflower oil and not SUNFLOWER oil.so be careful..

Image result for til ka tel
Dhruva is awake now guys time to leave will post an article tomorrow on what not to give to our kids…

do bear with me as i get only 5 am to 7 am time to post these articles.. that to 2 days as i go for strength training by PRC PUNE rest days left as i have to complete this blog so that my aim to take out all the kids from spectrum is achieved and also to complete 42 km marathon one day…

Sound Of Falling Snow:Dhruva’s Journey..

Sound of Falling Snow

“IMPOSSIBLE” itself says “I AM POSSIBLE”

With boundless love and patience we as a parent can help our child achieve success.During the darkest days don’t give-up; stand up once again when your faith is shaken”, and the most important part – “Believe in our child competence”My son was 7.5 month premature baby weighing 1400gm suffering from RDS spent 34 days in NICU and ventilator. A day came in the hospital wherein he stopped breathing and had to do surgery in the side of the lungs to give artificial respiration through ventilator. The Doctors, we and the baby fought back with courage and determination so that we could bring him back from the hospital to the home. And then came the day when we bought him to the home. His first touch and feel gave me such a satisfaction, joy, pride, relief and a close companion.Babies are like Sun that bring warmth, happiness and light into our lives in such a magical way. Time passed and he made my love stronger, day’s shorter, nights longer, bankroll smaller, home happier, clothes shabbier, apart forgotten and feel worth living for.My son was a healthy infant and met his developmental milestones until approximately 2yrs of age when we observed that his development was a bit slower. He was not responding to his name. People used to tell the boys generally have delayed speech. He was good at gross and fine motors but had speech delay. By the age of 2.5 yrs we witnessed strong regression in language and his behaviour after a heavy sickness. Since he cannot speak he used to cry a lot whenever he could not explain anything. We as a parent were distressed seeing his restlessness, hyperactivity, cry and developmental delays.We met many doctors and they recommended speech therapy, occupational therapy. Without any further delays, we started the therapies. We also researched almost all fields allopathic, homeopathy, ayurvedic treatment, aroma therapy, massage therapy, crystal therapy and Reiki ( as we are both Reiki Masters). We even requested Principal ma’am that our son needs some time off from the school so that we could extensively carry out all the therapies, who was always there to support us whatever we needed for the Child’s development. We also discussed with other parents who were facing similar problems.So, we took a leave from the school and dedicated our whole time for our child’s development. We started GFCFSF diet and went preservative free and initiated intense therapies noting down everyday’s diary for the kid to observe his development very closely. Days were hectic, and after seeing regular ups and down. With 3-4 hrs of daily massage, 1 hour of exercise, 2-3 hours of sitting/learning activity we found that he is now responding and feeling much less restless as he was able to explain his needs in a better way than before. With joint compressions his muscle tone also started improving.Time passed and about 3-4 month later we decided that now the child needs his mates company. So we decided to resume his schooling. And the day when he resumed his school, Principal Ma’am and his teachers were so surprised to see the change. He has improved eye contact, responding his name and following commands. Even he is comfortable with the teachers and his friends. Earlier he used to cry while going to school and now he is bringing his bag himself to go to school and happily goes to the school. He is happy now and less restless. He has not yet started speaking fully but has started few words and we are very confident that very soon he will be speaking too. A lot of thanks to Principal ma’am, Archana Ma’am and the teachers for their help and support.This was all possible due to the positive approach and dedication. Parent must enjoy their parenthood. Keep on pouring unconditional love and care upon your children whatever the situations. Respect your freedom and choice. Parent should come together and with their love and care can change any situation. If your child is weak in mathematics and good at arts, do not get a math’s teacher rather than get an arts teacher for the child. Children learn through various ways visually, by hearing, by observing others and by passively making the child do various activities. Some are good at some ways and some in others. We need to know the child closely what the child is good at and recognize his strengths. Hope this article will help you understand your child in a better way. Always “Dwell in possibilities”after helping about 6 to 7 kids now…all my friends out there wanted me to create a blog and share all the experience and our findings that is helping all the kids to recover from Autism….so guys here i am with the blog…will share all the data finding and my experiences…feel free to post any queries on..:: dhruvatherisingstar1@gmail.com- Mrs. Sneha Narayan- Capt.Rishikant Narayan
