Now that we know the difference between the Chinese food menu and a regular American take out food menu. In Chinese medicine or TCM, Autism or Autism spectrum disorders do not exist. See, just like that desert menu you were looking for. The Chinese have what is known as the Syndrome of 5 Delays. Or, an American singing group in(lip-sync). These delays are most associated with: speech, teeth eruption, hair growth(in America the more popular thing to do is to be bald), standing and walking. the dysfunction of the brain in TCM is due to an imbalance in the body functions deficiency is affecting the Qi or energy. In Western medicine( due to their deficiency of imbalance pertaining to physical being) the emotional aspect on the body is viewed as secondary of importance (see dinner and then dessert); while in Chinese medicine or TCM the emotional aspect is primary for Qi balance. In America the heart holds the mind (see appetizer, dinner and without a doubt dessert).
When there is a conflict of Qi at the polarity level in that Qi conflicts and becomes interdependent(see drinks, appetizer, dinner and yes dessert); this in effect greatly disturbs the Yin and Yang balance of a person as in relation to the energy of the body and that of it's surroundings and environment. Qi must be at optimal balance for the Yin and Yang to be regulated and the body healed of any imbalance.
In TCM or traditional Chinese medicine the tongue is connected to the brain and body. With regards to this connection, the tongue may be able to communicate with the brain via neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin. By tongue stimulation through acupuncture(ablation), the reactivating of the neuronal circuits in the cerebellum or in the frontal and temporal lobe most notably in the Broca's and Wernicke's area of the brain which has to do with speech, language and understanding; may enable the brain to repair itself. Who knows, tongue stimulation or brain ablation machines for home or portable use may be useful. You would just place your tongue into a waterproof apparatus that is connected to a tiny machine that delivers tongue stimulation, even to the back or underside of the tongue for several minutes on a regular basis. This will ablate the cerebral cortex area (Broca's and Wernicke's area) via the tongue and create a palate free of Qi deficiency-see restaurant, drinks, appetizer, dinner and of course dessert!
