Boy Becomes Seriously Ill From Parents Giving Him Alternative Medicine For Autism

October 12. 2016

A 4-year-old boy was recently rushed to the hospital in Britain with a potentially fatal condition, due to alternative medicine his mother began giving him. ITV News reports the boy was being given, "12 different supplements over a number of months, including vitamin D, camel's milk, silver and Epsom bath salts. His parents gave the boy the supplements in an attempt to treat his autism, but instead he lost 6.5lbs over three weeks and suffered vomiting and extreme thirst.

It is understandable that parents want their children to get well, but respectfully, you are not going to cure autism with fruits, vegetables, vitamins and or supplements. However, they do form a healthy diet. I am of the belief there is a variation in the brains of people with autism, but with professional therapy and training, many lead normal lives.

It is important not to stigmatize autistic people. Autistic people need to know they are loved and appreciated. Do not make them feel bad, but encourage, love and support them. Autistic people also need to be guided and protected to keep them from trouble and people from taking advantage of them.
