Autism, ASD

These conditions are a great challenge for those suffering from them and their families. The fact that so many books have been written about different approaches to dealing with these have been written, testifies to the fact that science is till learning about autism.

Nevertheless, the approach of Whole Person Medicine has certainly been appreciated by many these patients and their families.

My approach is to take a full and detailed history of the situation since it first became apparent. I offer nutritional and homeopathic support and I generally refer patients for an assessment by Hephzibah Kaplan, who is an art therapist with a great deal of experience of working with autistic children. I pay a great deal of attention to the family dynamic and liase with other professionals involved in the management of the patient.

Testimonials

Stephanie, Teddington

We came to see Dr Downing when our son Matthew was seriously unwell aged 10 with an unspecified post viral fatigue syndrome. Our GP had not been able to reassure us or provide us with anything other than advice to rest and it would pass. We were desperate when Matthew was unable to get out of bed and seemed to be going downhill. Dr Downing reacted immediately with a series of blood tests and vitamin infusions . It took two sessions but Matthew stabilised and started to eat and drink. Over the next two months, his condition improved and he was able to go back to school. It has been nearly three years since those dark months and Matthew has grown into a very tall, handsome 14 year old who has not been ill once - not even a cold!.
