As coming to Ayurveda, our अचार्य‘s explained these disorders in मानसिक सिकार ‘s (उन्माद, अपिमार, आक्षेपक, मूकत्व, ग्रह) 

The term ग्रह signifies both psychiatric and acute physical disease manifestation.  There will be improper functioning of धी, धृसि, स्मृसि, न्जान and also affect a  person’s behavior, manner and conduct. 

Our शरीर possess 3 types of दोष i.e िाि सपत्त कफ. These दोष ‘s or principles  that maintain the psycho-physiological function in the body and mind  respectively. If there are any variations in these दोष’s ,it will affect the शरीर.i.e., the  aggravation of दोष ‘s affects the mind of an individual and the intellect  becomes unstable. In this circumstances, the दोष ‘s spreads to the धमनी or  channels in the हृदर् and obstructs the मनोिह स्रोिि्. As a result सचत्त becomes  interrupt and leads to the condition like ग्रह रोग. 

The autism management is mainly focused on removing imbalanced doshas  from the body. In Ayurveda, the ideal chikitsas are शोधन (purificatory  procedures) and शमन कमय (alivative procedure).  

शोधन कमय includes: 

  • िमन (Emesis)
