Creating Waves of Awareness

Autism, or autism spectrum disorder, refers to a range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication, as well as by unique strengths and differences. When clubbed with Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) this can make the situation more difficult for the child, parents, care-givers and us as doctors.

A 3 yrs. old child was brought to us by his mother. He was already diagnosed early Autism and ADHD. The child does not speak sentences and repeats a few words. The mother complained of hyperactivity. He doesn’t sit in the school class. He just wants to roam around the whole time. After complaints from school on lack of speech, hyperactivity the child was taken to the psychiatrist for diagnosis and treatment.  The  mother did not want to start allopathic medicines so came for homeopathic treatment.

Case history

Patient is very restless, doesn’t sit at one place in class. He cannot concentrate on studies. Though his IQ level is very good.  He is very stubborn, demand things. If they are not given to him, then he keeps crying until he gets it. If he is angry then he will not let mother go anywhere. He always needs her attention, if not given, he throws temper tantrums.  He keeps on babbling. He cannot say words which are clear. He cannot frame sentences. He cannot speak much, only monosyllables like papa, dada, and mama. He doesn’t make eye contact with anybody.

He also complains of constipation and frequent URTI. The constipation is since birth and he is currently on gluten free diet.

He likes to dance; on peppy songs. He likes to jump. He easily remembers the steps. He doesn’t play with other kids, hits them. He loves moving objects like cars, trains. He plays with toys and arranges them in linear position. He studies well. He is very violent, hits. He used to pull mothers hair in anger. He likes to see flowing water. Whenever he is in motion he feels relieved.  He always wants to play hide and sneak with people. He would go hide behind a furniture or his mother when he meets other people. He is very sensitive to loud noise, he gets startled. If someone touches him or hugs him; kisses him, he doesn’t respond to it but gets hyper responsive to it. He doesn’t want to go near that person. He doesn’t understand how to care, love his surrounding family members. He never plays with his sister. Even if she tries to, he will not listen to her. He sleeps less and wakes up irritated in morning.

In school, teacher complaints, that he doesn’t finish his work. He cannot sit at one place and write numbers from 1 to 10. He doesn’t concentrate.

Physical generals:

Av: fruits

Cr: lemon juice, orange juice. Milk.  

Mother’s history during Pregnancy.

No complaints. It was LSCS due to previous delivery. 


Reportorial totality:

  1. Restlessness in children.
  2. Music ameliorates
  3. Patient wants to arrange toys in linear position.
  4. Hair pulls, Anger in.
  5. Restlessness. Hyperactivity.


Differential diagnosis of Remedy:

  1. Belladonna
  2. Arsenic Album
  3. Tarantula
  4. Tuberculinum


Analysis of case:

The patient is very restless, hyperactive, and destructive. So we understand sensitivity towards things, which are sudden, violent, attacking. And expressions to this sensitivity are in form of rage, fury, explosive anger, fear.

His reactions are very violent, sudden and he tries to run or go mad with this. He becomes destructive and try to pull others hair. He is very sensitive to external impressions like touch, loud music, and light.

The case represents more of child heightened sensitivity rather than issues of survival. Central theme of the case includes hyperactivity with violence, destructiveness, tearing things.

Remedy selected:

Belladonna 10m once a day.

After the remedy:

Patient felt partially better with the selected remedy but was not optimal hence re-analysis was done.

Along with restlessness, destructiveness there were symptoms of deceitfulness, longing for fast, rhythmic music, jumping. Constipation since birth, wherein laxatives does not give relief is the symptom mentioned in Pathak’s materia medica. This led us to Tarantula Hispanica.

Tarantula Hispanica was continued for 4 months, but it did not give satisfactory results. Further study of the state of patient was done.

Dr. Rajan Sankaran has mentioned in the book Soul of remedies, the industriousness, and busy, restless, desire for air, bring Tarantula very close to tubercular miasm. Tarantula is very similar to Tuberculinum remedy in its manifestation. Sometimes it’s difficult to differentiate.

An article in American Journal of Homeopathy stated that Tuberculinum ascending doses on consecutive days give better results when it is indicated remedy. (Reference Borland Children, Tuberculinum)

Considering this and the indication, Patient was given medicines in ascending order of the potencies. Tuberculinum started with 6c to cm daily for 2 days consecutively.
