One of the more alarming health concerns in recent years is the incidence of autism and spectrum disorders. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is often one of the methods of treatment parents will seek out, since there are symptomatic problems that other therapies do not address. TCM excels in moderating issues related to gastrointestinal disorders, sleep disorders, sensory processing disorders (SPD) or ADHD-type behaviors, which are all concurrent with the autism diagnosis. In this talk, you will learn basic information about:
- Nutritional strategies
- Acupressure for autism
- Qi gong for autism
