How Is Autism Commonly Treated?
Treatments fall into two major categories: educational interventions and medical management. More than half children diagnosed with Autism are prescribed psychoactive drugs or anticonvulsants. They respond atypically to medications, the medications can have adverse effects, and there is no known medication relieves autism’s core symptoms of social and communication impairments.
Stem cell treatments can be an effective approach to treating autism which is based on the unique ability of stem cells to influence metabolism, immune system and restore damaged cells and tissues. Treatment positively affects all body organs and systems, including the main part – the brain.
When autism is diagnosed, areas of brain regulating memory, concentration, attention, speech are damaged. Stem cell treatment improves blood and oxygen flow to the brain (improved perfusion), replaces damaged neurons and stimulates formation of the new arteries. After some time, stem cells acquire properties of cells surrounding them and multiply into these cells, which results in white and gray matter restoration and, consequently, in subsidence of neurologic symptoms and improved intellectual capacity. It has been proven that mesenchymal stem cells improve immune system and terminate inflammation. Stem cell therapy and autism spectrum disorder.
