Integrated Therapy Center For Autism Spectrum Disorders
"Our mission - secure a self-sustaining future for every special child with
Autism by improving their behavior and neurological status through Integrated
Autism research exhibits analytical threads, but patterns remain fragmented lacking a unified concept. Breakthroughs in molecular mechanisms and genomics explore new dimensions of information processing capabilities of the brain. We present a novel biomedical approach towards autism, based on a common denominator of ‘chronic inflammation’. Presented here in nutshell is the biological and molecular basis of this therapeutic hypothesis and the outcome of five year prospective clinical study.
Dr.N.P.Karthikeyen - Otorhinolaryngologist, is involved in bio-technological
analysis of herbs and compounds of ancient Indian medicine, to identify useful
molecules for immunology, oncology and neurology. Encouraged by a decade of
in-depth study, he established DOAST centre to conceptualize “Integrated
Therapy”. With the knowledge gained from mainstream medicine, his team at DOAST
analyzes ancient manuscripts to select useful drugs and therapies from
traditional Indian Medicine and integrates them into therapy protocol for
specific diseases. He is currently involved in standardizing such an
“integrated therapy” protocol for ASD. Apart from this he spreads positive
message on ASD to encourage professionals and parents in India.
The center of excellence for the practice & research of integrated therapy is
named as DOAST to convey the message of friendliness or togetherness. Our
mission is to spread positive awareness about autism to bring in comfort to
millions of individuals with autism and smile on the face of their parents.
