Also known as Autism, parents usually notice signs in the first two or three years of their child's life, characterized by troubles with social interaction and communication, restricted and repetitive behavior. Often accompanied by mental retardation, some children show unusual abilities such as the memorization of trivia to the extraordinarily rare talents of prodigious autistic savants.

There is no shortcut to treating Autism. To improve children's symptoms, western medicine mainly uses special education and medication. TCM treated Autism by children's acupuncture combined with Chinese medicine. Chinese medicine used to regulate congenitally and regulate the spleen and stomach. Acupuncture the scalp acupuncture points are for adjusting the function of the cerebral cortex a, dredge the brain network, together with other acupuncture points to improve intelligence.

TCM treatment can help to improve intelligence, improve mood disorders, language disorders and other symptoms, thereby enhancing children's quality of life and self-care ability.

The sooner the treatment of Autism starts, the better result the parents will get. Family's concern and the harmony of the surrounding environment also have a great impact on children. Spend more time to play, communicate, exercise with children, are also very helpful to improve the ability of language organization and expressive ability.

也被称为孤独症(Autism),多起病于婴幼儿期,主要表现为不同程度的言语发育障碍、人际交往障碍、兴趣狭窄和行为方式刻板。常伴有明显的智力落后,部分患儿在智力落后的情况下可见某方面较好的能力。

自闭症的治疗没有特效药,为改善患儿症状,西医主要采用的是特殊教育疗法,而中医主要以小儿针灸和中药来治疗。中药用以调理先天和后天,针灸以头针调节大脑皮层功能、疏通脑络,再配合其他穴位共同达到醒脑开窍益智的作用。

针药结合治疗,能起到提高智力、改善情感障碍及语言障碍等症状,从而提高患儿生活质量和生活自理能力。

自闭症越早治疗效果越好,家人的关注以及周围环境的和谐、愉快对于患儿的影响也很大。多陪伴患儿玩、沟通、一起锻炼身体等,这些活动对于帮助提升语言组织能力以及表达能力都是非常有帮助的。

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a mental disorder of the neurodevelopmental type. It is characterized by problems paying attention, excessive activity, or difficulty controlling behavior which is not appropriate for a person's age.

In children, problems paying attention may result in poor school performance, conduct disorder and lack social adaptation, which can affect their academic, physical and mental health, and their married life and social skills.

TCM believes that ADHD connects with organs dysfunction, it affects people's emotions and temperament. Through the four diagnostic criteria to determine the patient's organ’s qi and blood, and then give the treatment based on the individual symptom, the main method is the herb of Chinese medicine and acupuncture.

During child growth state, active and easy to distraction are normal, some parents may think their children have similar symptom as children with ADHD. Parents can let their child have Chinese medicine or to the hospital for testing to confirm. Children who have been diagnosed with ADHD can also have Western medicine treatment and Chinese medicine treatment at the same time, to improve efficacy and alleviate the side effects.

注意力缺陷多动障碍(ADHD)简称为【多动症】。主要表现为较同龄的孩子注意力集中困难和注意力持续时间短暂,相较于其他孩子更容易因外界刺激而分心。

患儿常伴有学习成绩差、品行障碍以及社会适应不良,会明显影响学业、身心健康和成年后的家庭生活与社交能力。

中医认为多动症跟脏腑功能失调而影响人的情绪、性情有密切关系,通过四诊合参判断患者的脏腑和气血盛衰,再依据个体情况给予治疗,方法以中药和小儿针灸相互配合为主。

儿童成长期间好动、容易分心等正常表现与多动症症状相似,家长可以选择由中医进行调理,或是到医院进行测试以便确诊。已确诊为ADHD的患儿也可选择中西医同时治疗,以提高疗效和缓解副作用。

Tic disorders are defined in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) based on type (motor or phonic) and duration of tics (sudden, rapid, nonrhythmic movements). Some common tics are eye blinking, throat clearing, sniffing, nodding and shaking his head and facial movements. Most children onset between 4 and 12 years of age, boys are more likely to have Tic Disorder than girls, often accompanied by hyperactivity, attention cannot be concentrated and other symptoms.

Tourette is quite new to many parents and in most instances:

  1. When the child appears wink, shook his head shrugs and other symptoms, parents think their child is just being naughty;
  2. Some parents who had learned a little about tic disorder, when their children found licking lips, playing tongue and other bad habits, sometimes might over-worried and mistakenly think their child suffering from tic disorder;
  3. Parents who had children were diagnosed with a tic disorder, might feel overwhelmed, do not know how to treat tic disorder.

The above situation may allow children to miss the best treatment period. Because of tic disorder, most of the children with tic disorder show very poor self-control. At school, they are easily criticized by their teachers or mock by their classmates, it may hurt their feeling.

When parents suspect the child may have a tic disorder, can bring the children to pediatric neurology or psychology to have a body check, if diagnosed, you can first choose psychological behavior treatment. When the behavior treatment effect is not obvious, then can consider with the drug treatment, it is recommended to choose traditional Chinese medicine treatment.

TCM think that the "wind" and "phlegm" are related to Tic Disorder and will diagnose and treated the children individual through the 4 diagnose methods, targeted the problem but fewer side effects.

是一种慢性神经精神障碍的疾病,以不能自主的、突然的、重复的肌肉抽动,如突然频繁眨眼挤眉、吸鼻、做怪表情、点头摇头、耸肩、甩手、踮脚等为主要表现,亦可见有怪叫声或粗口骂人等。大部分患儿于4至12岁之间起病,以男性居多,常伴有多动好动、注意力不能集中等症状。

抽动症对于许多父母而言是相当陌生的,一般常见的情况有:

  1. 当孩子出现挤眉弄眼、摇头耸肩等症状时,家长认为是孩子调皮不放在心上;
  2. 对抽动症稍有认识的家长,发现孩子出现舔唇、伸舌头等坏习惯时,过度担心,误以为自己孩子患上抽动症;
  3. 孩子被确诊为有抽动症后,非常茫然,不知道要怎么对待抽动症。

以上情况都可能让孩子错过最佳治疗时期。抽动症患儿因受到抽动症的影响,大部分自制力很差,在学校容易受到老师的指责、同学的嘲笑,让孩子留下阴影。

当家长怀疑孩子可能患有抽动症时,可以带孩子到小儿神经内科或心理科进行检查,如果被确诊,可以先选择心理行为治疗。当行为治疗效果不明显,考虑配合药物治疗时,建议先选择中药配合治疗。

中医认为抽动症的发病与“风”、“痰”关系密切,会根据患儿个体差异进行诊断和治疗,针对性强,标本兼治,且副作用少。
