Autism cures and treatments

When asked if autism has a cure of if there are treatments to cure autism, the answer is that this is different for every individual. The reason for this is because every single autism case is a different one. There might be a few common traits or problematic behaviors that will occur in more than one individual but overall each person diagnosed with autism has their own set of specific traits or problematic behaviors which will then need specialized and individual (one on one) treatment. Successful cures for autism include behavioral therapies as well as medical or in some cases a combination of the two. A very successful behavioral therapy most commonly used is ABA (applied behaviour analysis). There have been patients that have been in ABA treatment and many problematic behaviors have been cured or cease to exist after the treatment. Treatment has no time limit, this meaning that it can be over a short period of time for some but for others it can be for much longer. This does not mean that the treatment is not effective, it could just be dependant on the patients severity or how receptive they are to the treatment. The “ABA cure” if you will, can be seen as harsh to many. There are many arguments and different opinions to it by many different people including older patients who still have autism. However the results are phenomenal till date. It is the notion that taking one undesirable behaviour, finding the route of this problematic behaviour and changing its course (treatment) to lead it to a more desirable behaviour which will allow the patient to live a better life (cure). ABA works well when it is paired with consistency, the treatment has a more effective end result (cure) when it is repeated continuously and adapted to by the patient. Many autism cures are also said to have a very big connection with the medical side of the human body. One that is very common amongst patients with autism and has come up in most patients is called gut bacteria. It is said that the bacteria in the gut can cause the severity of the problem behaviour to increase. The most common form of gut bacteria is yeast. The higher aggravated it is the more the patients have to deal with during their treatment on the route to a cure. Yeast can come from sugars, foods and just an unhealthy gut. Therefore it is advisable that through the treatment process a specified diet that is specific for that patient and the type of medical conflicts that could be causing more damage rather than cure, would aid the patient’s medical side and could possibly lead to a faster treatment with the end goal being a cure. In conclusion patients with autism or those seeking for treatment on their behalf should consider both behavioral therapies as well as a thorough check medically and any form of medical therapies that would aid in autism cures and treatments.
