AYURVEDIC VIEW

It is a fact that Ayurvedic practices are effectual for autistic patients.  The earlier you start using ayurvedic herbs and treatments, the better it works for health. Ayurveda has a 5,000-year- old extremely effective treatment called Panchakarma. It is a cleansing and rejuvenation program and it helps to stimulate the layers of toxins from the body & bring them to the places where they can be excreted. The health improvement in a comparatively short period is the specialty of Panchakarma.
