Autism is a neurological disorder that affects the way an individual interacts and communicates with others. It can also cause difficulties in social interaction and communication, as well as restricted, repetitive behaviors. Here are the top 5 symptoms of autism: 1. Deficits in Social Interaction - Autistic individuals often have difficulty understanding social cues such as facial expressions and body language, which can lead to difficulty interacting with others in an appropriate manner. 2. Language Barriers - Autistic individuals may struggle to verbalize their thoughts or find it difficult to understand spoken language. They may also use words too literally or not at all, making it difficult for them to communicate effectively. 3. Repetitive Behaviors - Autistic individuals often display repetitive behaviors such as rocking, hand-flapping or spinning in circles. These are typically used to help calm themselves when feeling overwhelmed or anxious. 4. Sensory Disorders - Many autistic individuals have difficulty with sensory processing, meaning they may be hypersensitive to certain noises, textures and sensations that non-autistic people find harmless. 5. Anxiety - People on the autism spectrum can experience high levels of fear and anxiety due to their lack of understanding of social cues or their inability to communicate effectively with others. In essence they can be overwhelmed or overstimulated in quote "normal" circumstances. Fortunately, there are a number of treatments available that provide relief from these symptoms and improve quality of life for those living with autism. LENS Neurofeedback is a brain-based intervention that helps to improve the electrical activity in the brain while nutrigenomics is a natural approach to activating cells to function at their optimal level by decreasing cellular stress and producing more energy on a cell by cell basis. Physical Vascular Therapy can help alleviate anxiety by improving blood flow and oxygen uptake to the brain and body. Blood brings in nutrients while the oxygen takes out toxins. Lastly, low level light therapy has been found to be helpful in reducing some of the symptoms associated with autism, such as anxiety and overwhelm. By combining these treatments, it is possible to reduce autism-related symptoms and improve quality of life for those living with the disorder.
