Homeopathy and Autism Spectrum Disorder
A Guide for Practitioners and Families
By Mike Andrews
Jessica Kingsley Publishers, Singing Dragon
This book presents the clinical experiences of homeopaths working with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) around the world, exploring the outcomes that are being achieved in practice. Anecdotally, homeopathy has been found to be helpful for managing aggression, improving physical health problems and enhancing overall wellbeing in some children and adults with autism. This will be compelling reading for homeopaths, other healthcare professionals, teachers, parents and all those who come in to contact with children and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
