Autism Spectrum

So what is autism? (*In June 2022, the treatment policy for autism spectrum, high-functioning autism, Asperger’s syndrome, ADHD, LD, etc. was almost decided, so we will open a dedicated page for ” autism spectrum”.)

The causal theory adopted in Japan regarding autism is understood to cause various symptoms due to “brain function” disorders or “genetic” problems, and the cause is said to be unknown. (Not only autism, but also high-functioning autism, Asperger’s syndrome, ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), and LD (learning disability) are interpreted in the same way.)

Eye contact, speechlessness, panic, obsessiveness, tantrums, self-injurious behavior (e.g., banging head against wall), parroting (returning same words), stuttering (catching words), reluctance to make skin contact, not answering calls, preference to play alone, repeating same actions and same play, lack of facial expression, etc.

It can be said that they are characterized by their difficulty in expressing joy, anger, sadness, and anger, and their difficulty in conversing with others, so they are alone most of the time.

Currently there is no definitive treatment, and we have to rely on various local authorities, rehabilitation and specialists throughout the country.

*In the same category as autism are high-functioning autism, Asperger’s syndrome, ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), and LD (learning disability)



About our hospital’s response to autism

Autism is currently understood to have no definitive cure, the cause is unknown, or various symptoms are caused by abnormalities in “brain function. However, at our clinic, we believe that autism is not caused by “brain function. The main reason for this is that none of the symptoms that could occur if the cranial nerves were damaged can be found.

Usually, when the “brain” is damaged, the language itself cannot be spoken, or even if it is spoken, the correct speech cannot be produced (appearance of dysarthria/incapability to produce correct intonation).The appearance of intellectual disability shows common characteristics for brain damage, but not for autism.Brain injury, especially in cases of neuronal cell death in a part of the cranial nerve, special brain injury, or cerebral hemorrhage/infarction, the incidence of motor (paralysis) and sensory impairment exceeds about 80% (estimated based on our clinical numbers), but the incidence of motor and sensory impairment is 0%. However, the rate of motor and sensory disabilities is 0%. We believe that the symptoms of autism, high-functioning autism, Asperger’s syndrome, ADHD, and LD are not caused by “brain damage” but are deeply related to the autonomic nervous system, and are similar to symptoms that appear when the autonomic nervous system itself is “damaged.

Autism and the “Autonomic Nervous System

Since the opening of our clinic, we have been treating autism mainly with “cranial nerve” and “immune system” therapies. We have been dealing with autistic children for about 20 years, and it is a fact that almost all of them did not show any remarkable recovery or change. Most intractable diseases are deeply related to “cranial nerves” and “immune system,” and each disease has its own characteristic recovery and change if treated.However, in terms of autism, on the contrary, what was characteristic was the remarkable fact that “they all did not change at all”. It is an ironclad rule that when a disease or illness occurs, there is always a “damaged area that causes it. When we switched to a treatment that completely excluded the “cranial nerves” and “immune system,” which showed no change at all, a boy with autism showed a change that seemed miraculous, which was the trigger for the “discovery of the cause.This is exactly what happened when we treated him with “autonomic nervous system only. The autistic boy’s “autistic symptoms” disappeared one after another in a matter of months, and within a year, “all the main complaints disappeared. In 2019, a treatment method using only the “autonomic nervous system” was established, and when autistic children were treated informally using only the “autonomic nervous system,” remarkable results were seen one after another. Although the number of subjects was small, all the symptoms of autism disappeared one after another in almost the same number of days. These results indicate that the “autonomic nervous system” is deeply involved, not the “cranial nerves” or “genes.

*Please refer to the “Medical Column” for information on the appearance of tantrums, panic, shouting, and self-injurious behavior.

Current status of “Autonomic Nervous System

In Japan, scientific research on the “autonomic nervous system” is currently in progress. However, the characteristics of the “autonomic nervous system” are only recognized as “regulatory” nerves, and its other abilities and special functions have not been clarified at all. However, based on many clinical results, we have learned that the autonomic nervous system has not only the ability to regulate, but also the ability to repair and restore itself. When the autonomic nervous system becomes unstable or disordered, dysautonomia occurs, and when the autonomic nervous system itself becomes damaged, autism, high-functioning autism, Asperger’s syndrome, ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), AD (learning disability), and other disorders occur. AD (learning disability). For details, please refer to the “Treatment Menu” on the top page of our clinic -> “Autonomic Nervous System”. This page explains the actual condition of the “autonomic nervous system” and its capabilities.

Treatment : By activating the “autonomic nervous system,” many symptoms may disappear.
*The “autonomic nervous system itself” may be damaged by some factor.

Acupuncture is not used at all in the treatment of autism. The autonomic nervous system is vulnerable to stress. Acupuncture” is a painful treatment, and therefore, we will treat in a way that does not cause any stress at all. If you wish to have acupuncture treatment in conjunction with your child’s treatment, please do not hesitate to let us know. If your child does not mind, acupuncture can be used in conjunction with the treatment. (*As with autism, the same treatment is available for high-functioning autism, Asperger’s syndrome, ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), and LD (Learning Disability).

Although currently “under clinical examination” in our hospital, there have been changes in various symptoms.

Daily consumption of “Yamato no Izumi” activates the “autonomic nervous system” and repairs autonomic nerve damage.

*Effectiveness varies from person to person and may be difficult to achieve.

Start of treatment 3 months

Increased calmness, decreased frequency of panic and obsession, and correct language begins to emerge.

Start of treatment 6 months

More calmness, less panic, less obsession, more use of correct language

Start of treatment 12 months

Be able to remain calm on a regular basis, panic and obsession are seldom seen, and normal language is usually used.

Start of treatment 18 months

They will be able to settle down daily, rarely panic or obsess, speak in normal language every day, play with other friends, and communicate with others.

Start of treatment 24 months

Most of the main symptoms of autism, such as eye contact, panic, obsession, self-injurious behavior, parroting, stammering, reluctance to make skin contact, refusal to answer calls, preference to play alone, repetition of the same actions/play, and lack of facial expression, disappear, and the child can live a life similar to a normal child.

*Clinical examination started in 2019. Clinical examination is ongoing. The above symptom changes may not always occur due to the small number of clinical examinations. In addition, there may be many differences in symptom changes depending on the child. Please create an environment that is as warm and watchful as possible (to avoid stress) during the period when our recommended “Yamato no Izumi” is performed. We would like to increase the number of clinical examinations and report them to you in a timely manner. *We hope you will give it a try, even if only for the three-month period during which the initial changes occur!(June 2022 Toru Yokouchi, Director, Yamato Acupuncture Clinic)

Initial changes (start of implementation – 3 months)

Usually many diseases are easy for anyone to notice when symptoms appear and difficult to recognize when they disappear. When back pain appears, you may notice the discomfort of “severe pain,” and when tinnitus appears, you may be bothered by the annoying “keening” sound, and you will clearly notice the change in symptoms. However, as the back pain disappears little by little, you will return to your normal self, and in many cases, you will “notice” that it is gone. In the case of autism, there are few cases of “major pain” or other symptoms that are usually noticeable, so the following is a list of symptom recovery changes for your reference. The recovery changes are not limited to “language,” “panic,” and “obsession,” but also include self-injurious behavior, parroting, and refusal to respond to calls for help. The three points listed here, “language,” “panic,” and “obsession,” are just for reference, so please pay attention to the other points as well.

1st month

It is difficult to see any significant changes.

2st month

Words that are not normally used will sometimes appear. Such as “Good morning~” in the morning, “Because I~”, “Do you~”, “I want to~”, etc. Also, if they really want to say one thing and cannot say it correctly, they will appear to want to say what they want to say, trying to say the same thing over and over again.
“Panic.” “Obsession.”
Panic and obsession were always present in the same situation, but the panic and obsession did not occur and passed as if nothing had happened. When the procedure was different or when they tried to proceed in a different pattern than usual, there was a noticeable outcry, panic, or insistence, but nothing happened and the situation passed by without incident. In various situations, the patient yelled, panicked, and was obsessive, but in many situations, these symptoms disappeared.

3st month

If you observe carefully again, you will see an increase in the number of words used for the first time. The correct use of language is gradually becoming possible. The number of words used throughout the day was small, but the number of words used clearly is increasing. Words are being used more actively.
“Panic.” “Obsession.”
When loud situations, panicked patterns or obsessions occur, loudness, panic and obsession do not appear. Unlike usual, there is a clear increase in “calmness”.

After three months…

The above will become even clearer. *It is difficult to see any noticeable changes for about a month after the date of implementation. Some children may also show differently from the above changes.

*In recent years, autism, high-functioning autism, Asperger’s syndrome, ADHD, and LD have been seen not only in infants and elementary school children, but also in junior high school students to middle-aged and older adults who are struggling with these various symptoms. The “autonomic nervous system” responds strongly regardless of age, so we believe that the effects of the treatment are fully reflected even in middle school students to middle-aged and older people.

*If you have any questions or concerns regarding the implementation of our recommended “Yamato no Izumi”, please do not hesitate to ask us through the “Contact Us” form. Also, if you would like to know more specifically about the characteristic differences between intellectual disabilities derived from “cranial nerve damage” and those from “autonomic nerve damage,” or if you would like us to examine and look at your “child” directly, please do not hesitate to see us.

*For Patients Visiting Our Clinic – How to Treat Children

・・・Autistic children with damaged autonomic nervous system are vulnerable to stress, and if you usually scold them with strong words or talk to them too fast, their stress will increase, and they tend to have tantrums, panic, and obsession. Patients who visit our clinic are given guidance on “how to interact with children at home” and “how to create a home environment” that facilitates the disappearance of autistic tendencies, and are monitored during monthly visits to the clinic.


The long-awaited health drink “Yamato no Izumi” is born in Japan! (June 2022)

1.The causes of the onset of autism spectrum disorder are identified.

Currently, various methods and treatments for autism spectrum disorder, high-functioning autism, Asperger’s syndrome, ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), and LD (Learning Disability) are being sought and implemented around the world. However, while no definitive treatment has been found, Toru Yokouchi, Director of Yamato Acupuncture Clinic, which specializes in “intractable diseases” in Japan, discovered that the cause of various symptoms such as autism spectrum disorder is due to “autonomic nerve damage”. He succeeded in creating a solution to eliminate the symptoms of autism spectrum disorder, high-functioning autism, Asperger’s syndrome, ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), and LD (Learning Disability). The “autonomic nervous system” has the ability to repair itself. If the autonomic nervous system is activated, the autonomic nerve damage will be repaired and the symptoms of autism spectrum disorder will almost disappear. There is no supplement or health drink that activates the “autonomic nerve” itself (according to Yamato Acupuncture Clinic’s research). Finally, “Yamato no Izumi” will be born here in Japan.

*Effects on autistic children are listed separately on a “dedicated autism page”.
All of the patients have currently shown results in the disappearance of all symptoms caused by autistic spectrum disorder as a result of the activation of the autonomic nervous system. (Yamato Acupuncture Clinic, clinical examination ongoing, August 2022)



In Japan, acupuncture and moxibustion have been attracting attention as a treatment method for autism and other disorders, but the expected results have not been achieved for several decades. There are many types of acupuncture and moxibustion treatment in Japan, and their effectiveness has been tested over the years, but the current situation continues to be that the therapeutic effects of acupuncture and moxibustion have not been recognized at all.

Mr. Toru Yokouchi, Director of Yamato Acupuncture Clinic and the creator of the long-awaited health drink “Yamato no Izumi,” has elucidated that autism spectrum disorder, high-functioning autism, Asperger’s syndrome, ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), and LD (learning disability) are caused by “autonomic nerve damage,” and has pointed out that acupuncture and moxibustion treatment is completely ineffective against “autonomic nerve damage. The reason for this is that the “autonomic nervous system” is not a factor in autonomic nerve damage. The reason for this is that the “autonomic nerve” is accompanied by “pain” peculiar to acupuncture and moxibustion, and this pain inversely inactivates the autonomic nerve. It is also pointed out that the autonomic nervous system is a sensitive nerve, and the pain associated with acupuncture treatment can be counterproductive because it causes unnecessary stress.

To recover from autonomic nervous system damage, Dr. Toru Yokouchi focuses on a set of nutrients that must activate both sympathetic and parasympathetic nerves simultaneously to activate the autonomic nervous system. Today, the world has produced many vitamins and single nutrients, as well as many supplements and health drinks. However, no health drink has ever been invented specifically for the “autonomic nervous system.

2.Flaws in today’s “supplements” and “health drinks”

The most advanced medicine to date has pursued the autonomic nervous system solely from a “scientific (bio)” perspective. The autonomic nervous system is regulated by “0 bacteria that regulates the intestinal environment. No, it is “100 times concentrated 00 nutrients that make the body healthy. Sleeping soundly is the key to relieve stress, and various symptoms occur when the balance between the sympathetic and parasympathetic nerves is disrupted.

The scientific perspective creates a tendency to move away from the “essence”. The autonomic nervous system involves the “gut. Discovering “this one nutrient,” “sleep is key,” and “balance” of the autonomic nervous system matter. Existing “supplements,” “beauty foods and beverages,” and “health foods and beverages” around the world focus almost exclusively on one “point. But in the “clinical field” of medicine, a different answer quickly emerges. Cranial nerve diseases, immune system diseases, and autonomic nervous system diseases. The cause affecting each disease is never “one” but exists across “multiple” causes.

Let’s look at an easy-to-understand case. A patient came to our clinic with stiff neck and shoulders. Ordinary people would tend to think that “stiff neck/shoulders” are stiff and can be cured by “rubbing and relaxing”. However, the answer is “no. If you only use one solution, “firmer and looser,” you will only feel “temporarily relieved” right after the treatment, but the next day, it will come back soon. I am sure you have experienced this too. Now, here comes the problem. Let’s take a look at the overall picture of stiff neck and shoulders. Let’s look at all the causes of stiff neck and shoulders: the first is eye strain caused by constant computer use; the second is muscle tension caused by the same posture; the third is lack of sleep, since the symptoms are caused by a lack of restorative power. If we can produce the three effects at the same time, i.e., to let the eyes rest enough to recover the optic nerve, to allow a sound sleep, and to relax the muscles, the stiffness in the neck and shoulders will have been eliminated for a long time.

Let us take another example, bone density, which is related to calcium. The whole process of “bone formation” is as follows: 1. Only when calcium is ingested, bone resorption of calcium ions in the blood begins. No matter how much “calcium” is one of the main players in bone formation, it is only effective when various conditions are met, so it is difficult to achieve an effect even if you take only a single calcium supplement.

3.The most promising way to treat autism

Currently in Japan and around the world, a variety of nutrient supplements and health drinks are being produced for their effectiveness in treating many diseases. These include supplements and beverages that contain “~100 times more vitamin C” and “sprouts, etc. Sprouts, etc.” supplements and health drinks. Vitamin and mineral supplements and beverages. Multivitamin supplements and health drinks. Nutritional supplements, health drinks. Essential amino acid supplements, health drinks. Cholesterol supplements, health drinks DHA supplements, health drinks Zinc supplements, health drinks. Citric acid supplements, health drinks.

No matter how essential amino acids are to the human body, they have only one attribute: “essential amino acids. No matter how important vitamins and minerals are to health, they have only one attribute: “vitamins and minerals. The greatest focus is on the therapeutic effect on the autonomic nervous system. What multiple elements are required for the nutrients needed for autonomic nerve damage to heal? We have succeeded in extracting the elements and have created something that activates both the sympathetic and parasympathetic nerves at the same time.

4.What restores the autonomic nervous system?

It is important to know that the internal environment of the human body and its ability to repair itself does not operate at all with only one component and only one factor. And at the same time, it means that the treatment cannot be effective. The same can be said for “autonomic nerve damage”. But today’s Western medicine, beauty industry, and health industry have curiously the same tendency. As I mentioned earlier, there is only one viewpoint, such as “one element solves the problem. From a clinical point of view, this tendency can only be described as “nonsense. In particular, it is impossible to “recover” from “autonomic nerve damage” with only one factor.

*Diseases closely related to the autonomic nervous system include depression, menopause, Crohn’s disease (related to stress), hay fever, as well as blood pressure and cancer, which are caused by stress and disorders of the autonomic nervous system. In addition, we believe that “autism” is deeply related to the autonomic nervous system in pediatric patients. Clinical tests are currently underway for “Autism Spectrum Disorders,” and it has been shown that by activating the autonomic nervous system, symptoms such as “panic,” “echoic speech (parroting),” “hyperactivity,” and “repetition of the same actions” tend to disappear.

5.Birth of “Yamato no Izumi,” a health drink that repairs (treats) “autonomic nerve damage,” the cause of autism spectrum disorder.

Even if we succeed in extracting all the nutrients that affect the autonomic nervous system, the “autonomic nervous system” is not actually activated. Most people will always consume the nutrients that activate the autonomic nervous system in their daily diet, and will probably consume all the nutrients they need throughout the year. However, as autism and dysautonomia continue to increase, the autonomic nervous system is not being activated, but only weakened. However, I believe that the time has come for that barrier to come crashing down.

The ideal aggregate of nutrients. The ideal nutrient aggregate that activates the “autonomic nervous system” requires materials with certain conditions, the application of the principles of “Chinese herbal medicine,” and a number of other things. By adding a certain process to these ingredients before and during the manufacturing process, we believe we have finally achieved our ideal product. The health drink “Yamato no Izumi” will bring miracles to children on the autism spectrum, high-functioning autism, Asperger’s syndrome, ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), and LD (Learning Disability).

6.Characteristics of current supplements and health drinks and the unique features of “Yamato no Izumi”.

Let’s examine current supplements and health drinks for autism spectrum, high-functioning autism, Asperger’s syndrome, ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), and LD (learning disabilities).


・Supplement that supplements nutrients lacking in “hair testing.”
・Supplements beneficial for “sleep” and “digestive symptoms” of autism.
・Supplement to improve “behavioral symptoms” and “sleep” in autism.
・Iron and vitamin supplements that are expected to improve “restlessness” in autism.
・And many more

*No therapeutic effect on autism itself can be achieved.


Health Beverages: Currently, there are no health beverages that are effective for autism spectrum, high-functioning autism, Asperger’s syndrome, ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), or LD (learning disability) (our survey).

Currently, the cause of autism spectrum disorder is considered “brain damage” or “genetic problem” in the world, but we do not support this theory (*The explanation of the rationale is on a separate page). We conclude that the cause of autism is “autonomic nerve damage. Conventional supplements for autism spectrum disorder are produced based on the starting point that the cause is “brain damage” or “genetic problem”. However, as shown in the above supplements, they do not have an effect on autism itself, but on “sleep” or “gastrointestinal symptoms” alone.

Few, if any, medical research institutions in the world have ever conducted an autonomic nervous system study. The cause was discovered through an encounter that could be called a coincidence. For about 20 years, our clinic, Yamato Acupuncture & Moxibustion Clinic, has been the mainstay of acupuncture treatment for autistic children, specializing in “cranial nerves” and “immune system,” but no changes occurred in all autistic children. Therefore, the acupuncture treatment using “cranial nerves” and “immune system,” which did not cause any changes, was completely excluded, and a method to activate only the “autonomic nerves” by a method other than acupuncture was tried. The “discovery of the cause” was triggered when an autistic boy showed what seemed to be a miraculous change. That is exactly what happened when we dealt with the “autonomic nervous system only”. The autistic boy’s “autistic symptoms” disappeared one after another in a matter of months, and within a year, all of his main complaints disappeared.
