Romantic Healthcare, Heilkunst and Autism
There is no question that we currently face an unprecedented tragedy in the form of a profound disturbance in the health of our children at all levels – body, mind, soul and spirit. We are all witnesses to a plague of autism, and the usual alphabet soup of behavioral disorders – ADHD, ADD, ODD, PDD etc.
While the statisticians and the supposed experts continue to argue over cause and effect, and search for incontrovertible “proof,” with research mainly carried out within a limited, and largely outmoded bio-chemical paradigm, the tragedy continues to strike individuals and their families by the thousands, with little real relief and only vague hopes in continued research. But research that does not address the real causes, which are many, of autism and other behavioral conditions has little chance of doing anything other than palliating the symptoms.
