Shedding Light on the Triggers Behind Autism

When it comes to triggering factors in autism, there are still a lot of unknowns, but there are some key areas that we do know can play a role. For starters, there can be genetic factors that lead to the condition. In some cases, there can be a combination of both genetic and environmental factors that contribute to the onset of autism.

Environmental factors can include things such as exposure to certain toxins during pregnancy, low birthweight, or exposure to infections. Research is still being conducted to further understand these environmental factors and how they may impact autism.

Studies have also shown that parents who are older when they have a baby, especially older fathers, may also increase the risk of autism. In addition, research has suggested that stress experienced by the mother during pregnancy or even after the birth of the baby can contribute to autism.

At this time, scientists are still researching and evaluating the different factors that may lead to autism. It is important to remember that the cause of autism is different for each individual and there is no single cause. However, understanding the potential triggers can help us to better understand, diagnose, and treat the condition and help those living with autism enjoy a better quality of life.

by repetitive patterns of behavior. Ayurvedic management of autism is based on unmada chikitsa with a multidimensional approach by incorporating herbal medication, bio-purificatory principles of Ayurveda, tailored diet, counseling, speech therapy, occupational therapy, and yogic practices
