Our Mission

The mission of Herbs for Autism is to teach parents and caregivers how to use herbalism safely and effectively in healing the underlying medical conditions found in autism.

Herbs for Autism was started in response to an alarming rise in the use of pharmaceuticals (many with serious side effects) for children with special needs. Herbalism uses nature’s gifts of food, herbs and flower essences to heal even the most challenging medical concerns.

We believe that basic health care should be in the hands of the parents. This blog is our means to share that knowledge. We invite you to join us and share your thoughts.
