Naturopathic Autism Treatment
Vermont Natural Family Health now offers treatment in Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) with Dr. Maria Cronyn using naturopathic therapies to treat symptoms and behaviors without medication.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that 1 in 68 children in the U.S. have autism. This is up by an alarming 30% from the 1 in 88 reported in 2008.
Treating the cause, or Tolle Causum, is a core principle of Naturopathic medicine. Getting to the root cause of ASD can be complex and difficult to find as it can be due to a combination of factors including genetic susceptibilities, digestive disturbances, heavy metal toxicities, autoimmune diseases as well as environmental exposures. Dr. Cronyn utilizes a variety of genetic and diagnostic testing to assess the underlying contributors to the condition and tailors an individualized treatment plan to optimize the health of the child. She combines dietary counseling, herbal therapy, homeopathy, detoxification and nutritional supplementation to support the child and improve their vitality.
