Today, I will talk about the effects and characteristics of five levels of my herbal prescriptions specific to autism cure. I’ve repeatedly said that the two underlying conditions that define autism are sensory processing disorder & dysautonomia. I am convinced that no treatment can completely control these two symptoms except herbal medicine, so I believe that only an adequately prescribed herbal treatment can cure autism.
Dr. Tomato’s herbal medicine has five distinct phases: stage 1, stage 2, stage 3, stage 3.5, and stage 4. The numbering for stage 3.5 herbal medicine is a little confusing because initially, I used to make prescriptions according to the progression of improving autism symptoms as stage 1, stage 2, stage 3, and stage 4. But during practice, I realized there should be a specified stage between stage 3 and stage 4 that needs treatment for a certain period, so I named as stage 3.5. So it eventually consists of stage 1, stage 2, stage 3, stage 3.5, and stage 4 herbal medicine.
Stage 1, 2, and 3 herbal medicines are for severe autism, which means they will work to calm down and regulate children with severe sensory processing challenges and dysautonomia. So in some cases, children with milder symptoms will only use Stage 1, and in some cases, children with more challenges will use Stages 2 and 3. So depending on the child’s level of symptoms, we will use Stages 1, 2, and 3 selectively, and the duration of the treatment will also vary. The average duration of usage is about six months, with a shorter period of three months and a more extended period of nine months. In other words, we can expect to see the sensory processing disorder and autonomic dysfunction fundamentally stabilize after six months of use. So, from the outside looking in, you can understand that Stages 1, 2, and 3 are the prescriptions used to outgrow autistic tendencies successfully.
When the child is successful in getting out of the autistic tendencies after 6 months, what they need is cognitive development, improved learning ability, improved attention span, activation of information processing speed, etc. But to improve this cognitive development collectively, the child’s emotional and social development must be completed first. Therefore, the prescriptions we use at this stage are the 3.5 and 4-stage, which means that the 3.5 and 4-stage prescriptions are for children already out of severe autism and can interact to some extent. These are typically used to improve cognitive development, concentration, and learning for children diagnosed or considered to have Asperger’s syndrome, mild autism spectrum disorder, social communication disorder, quiet ADHD, or mild social disorder.
I believe it usually takes about a year for a child to fully outgrow their autistic tendencies, stabilize their development, and bring their cognitive development closer to the normal range. After that, the child is supposed to use Stage 4 herbs for six months to a year to improve their learning abilities, focusing on improving their attention span. Through this long process, we will succeed in getting out of the autism spectrum disorder.
