What would be your approach to treating a child with autism for lyme? Most of these children have multiple metabolic issues and delicate systems. Is your protocol appropriate for such children? Thank you.
Treating someone with autism for anything else that might be troubing them is a challenge. I have worked little with autism directly, though in my psychotherapy practice many conditions bear some underlying similarity to it. I would tend to use the herbs low dose and watch carefully for any alterations in bahavior. My limited experience is that children with autism are exceptionally sensitive. So, qualified, yes, the protocol is appropriate but it should be monitored extremely closely and very low doses should be used of one herb at a time with others added later on.
