Briefe an einen zehnjährigen Autisten
Vitamin B Mangel in Verbindung gebracht mit: Neurodermitis - Autismus
Menschen mit Autismus haben Probleme, soziale Situationen richtig einzuschätzen und mit anderen Menschen angemessen zu kommunizieren. Es handelt sich dabei um eine tief greifende Entwicklungsstörung.
Unterschieden wird zwischen frühkindlichem Autismus, atypischem Autismus und dem Asperger-Syndrom. Weil die Abgrenzung zunehmend schwerfällt, wird heute oft der Oberbegriff Autismus-Spektrum-Störung verwendet.
Woher Autismus kommt, ist unklar. Wahrscheinlich wirkt Mehreres zusammen: Schädigungen am Gehirn, biochemische Störungen und die Gene. Menschen mit Asperger, benannt nach einem Wiener Kinderarzt, der diese milde Form des Autismus 1944 erstmals beschrieb, besitzen eine normale bis überdurchschnittliche Intelligenz.
Etwa 6 von 1000 Menschen sind Autisten, die Hälfte von ihnen leidet am Asperger-Syndrom. Tub.?
Auslöser sind Veränderungen des Gehirns, die zu Verarbeitungs- und Wahrnehmungsstörungen führen. Als Ursachen gelten erbliche Faktoren und biologische Einflüsse,
Der Autismus gilt zwar als unheilbar, Studien belegen aber, dass eine frühe Diagnose und etwa eine gezielte Musik- oder Verhaltenstherapie die Symptome mildern können und so die Lebensqualität wesentlich erhöhen. In einem Vergleich autistischer und nicht autistischer Probanden konnten Forscher des McLean Hospital in Massachusetts mithilfe eines Hirnscanners eine autistische Störung mit 94-prozentiger Sicherheit erkennen - bestimmte Hirnareale waren verändert. Das nährt Hoffnungen auf frühzeitigere und zuverlässigere Diagnosen.
Trotz ihrer Einschränkungen setzen sich Autisten selbst dafür ein, nicht als krank eingestuft zu werden. Ihr Argument: Sie nehmen die Welt nur auf veränderte Weise wahr. Und führen oft ein ebenso zufriedenes Leben wie Nicht-Autisten.
Diagnose: Asperger-Syndrom ist eine milde Form des Autismus. Die Ursache ist eine Hirnentwicklungsstörung, die Defizite bei emotionalen und sozialen Fähigkeiten hervorruft. Manche Betroffene sind hochintelligent oder verfügen über sogenannte Inselbegabungen wie außergewöhnliche Gedächtnisleistung oder Rechenfertigkeit.
Die Rolle der Bakterien
In den letzten 20 Jahren explodierte die Zahl der Neuerkrankten an Autismus, eine Behandlungsmethode gibt es noch nicht. Auslöser sind eventuell Mikroben, die für
Magen-Darm- und Stoffwechselstörungen sorgen.
Der Film zeigt den Stand der Forschung in Bezug zu Autismus und liefert intime Einblicke in das Leben Betroffener.

The key to the healing of autism with homeopathy is not the classical homeopathic approach, but Isotherapy, using a homoepathic remedy made from a safe preparation
of the toxic causative agent.
Lactose based homeopathic preparations are not suitable for use in autism. The DHU remedies are the only “dry” classical homeopathic pellets that use a nonallergenic
easy to digest mono-saccaride.
Der Begriff Autismus steht für ein breites Spektrum leichter bis schwerer Entwicklungsstörungen. Meist versteht man darunter den frühkindlichen Autismus
(Kanner-Syndrom), der bereits in den ersten 3 Lebensjahren auftritt. Eines von 100 Kindern ist betroffen, von den Jungen sogar einer von 70.
Die Diagnose erfolgt anhand typischer Kombinationen von Merkmalen wie eine verspätete oder nicht vorhandene Sprachentwicklung und motorische Auffälligkeiten.
Ebenso häufig sind stereotype Verhaltensweisen, etwa ständiges Wedeln mit der Hand, sowie soziale Schwächen wie das Vermeiden von Augenkontakt.
Mildere Formen sind der atypische Autismus und das Asperger-Syndrom, auf die weniger Merkmale zutreffen, so kann die Sprachentwicklung normal sein.
Auslöser sind Veränderungen des Gehirns, die zu Verarbeitungs- und Wahrnehmungsstörungen führen. Als Ursachen gelten erbliche Faktoren und biologische Einflüsse,

The author, a homeopath, was introduced to homeopathy in his pursuit of a cure for his autistic son. He describes his experience and mentions remedies that have been useful in autism. When my son Adam was diagnosed with Autism, it was the beginning of a life-changing journey for us both. His subsequent recovery through natural medicine and homeopathy in particular, has been an amazing experience and awakening for me.
Autism - the diagnosis
It is impossible to describe the emotions a parent goes through when coming to terms with a diagnosis of autism for their child. One parent described it like this: “Imagine your child disconnecting from the world. A child whose eyes look, but don’t see, whose ears hear, but don’t listen, whose cries never end and doctors offer little help.
We don’t know what’s wrong with this child. We’ll call them autistic and put them all in a box. And we don’t know what causes it. We have no idea how to fix it”.
We have a real crisis in
Most children on the autism spectrum, have never received homeopathic treatment and in my experience, the reason for this is lack of awareness. When a child receives
a diagnosis, parents typically don’t know where to turn to. The more success that homeopaths have in treating these children, the more the word will spread. There are few therapies like homeopathy that can treat at the core of the child’s problems.
Most simply work on the level of the symptoms and the results are usually patchy. Homeopathy gives the parents hope, real hope, based on real healing. Real hope is the ground you can stand on when you feel you are suffocating and sinking fast.
Autism - the experience
I often feel that the daily life experience of a child with autism must be like someone who is living in some foreign country without knowing the local language and who is constantly exposed to the sense of fear, insecurity and stress. These children are unable to get in touch with our emotional world. They have lost confidence in this world
and are in an imprisoned state; and will remain there until they regain the confidence to return to the “normal” emotional world. This also helps to explain why autism so
often arises after vaccinations. Being injected with toxic vaccines can be the last straw for a sensitive, susceptible child. However, I have also treated autistic children who were never vaccinated, but a common occurrence is some traumatic emotional experience during the pregnancy or early childhood. The bottom line is that the level of trauma has been sufficient to trigger the autistic state and as every child is an individual, that level of trauma and the response to it will be individual. If everybody understood how
a little child can become autistic, many preventative measures could be taken to dramatically reduce the number of autistic children all over the world. These children are not grounded, they have not incarnated. properly, their spirit is reluctant to enter fully or retreats at any early stage in response to trauma.
Autism - treatment by homeopathy
In my view, the essence of the autistic condition is a loss of the self through cumulative assaults from the moment of conception and through the first few years, when the self emerges as a conscious entity. The self as a conscious entity has not emerged in these children. Of course, the focus of homeopathy is not to treat the isolated symptoms of the autistic child, but to treat the child as a whole. While any remedy may be required in any individual case, in my experience certain remedies come up more often than others [Solanacea (Stram./Hyos./Bell.) Spider./Merc. Cupr-met. Verat. Zinc-met. Op.]
EffecTIVE in many cases is Sacch.
Other useful remedies are Carc. Lacs, Cic. Virosa, Iod. Bar-c. Plac. and Limestone.
If we look at some of the rubrics that 3 of these remedies have in common, we can get an insight into some causations as well as the terrible mental state of some of these children:
Ailments from vaccination:
„As if under attack“:
Delusion, murdered, he will be [
Delusion, pursued by enemies [Bell].
Delusion, surrounded by enemies/everyone is an enemy [Merc].
Delusion, is being injured [Stram].
Delusion, dogs attack him [Stram]
Fierce animals are ready to attack:
Delusion, dogs sees [
Delusion, is alone in the wilderness [Stram]
Delusion, animals jump out of the ground [Stram]
A remedy that I have found useful in some cases has been Thym-gl. The thymus gland is the organ that enables us to distinguish between what is “me” and “not me”.
It helps create and maintain the immune system and it regulates the right amount of immunity, like a thermostat. It is very important in Cancer and Autoimmune diseases and, interestingly, many ASD children have biological markers consistent with an autoimmune disease. The thymus gland has been described as the “Black Box” of negative events, recording whatever has changed the original life pattern and the remedy can open the person up to past traumas, explore the darkness within and unlock and resolve maintaining causes of trauma. Part of its picture is also birth trauma (very common in ASD) and the overuse of all kinds of drugs, as well as a set facial expression (again common in ASD).
I have found this remedy to be particularly powerful in bringing “hidden” symptoms into full view, often to be treated with other remedies.
Autism and vaccination
The use of homeopathic antidotes to vaccines, antibiotics and other medications the child has been exposed to, can give great results. I have seen some cases respond very favourably to this approach (MMR/DPT/BCG).
Of course, the success of this approach proves that for some children, vaccines are at least part of their difficulty. Despite the damage from them, more and more vaccines are being pushed, with more and more viruses and adjuvants in single shots. I think the word “shot” is very appropriate as it is like playing Russian Roulette with a child’s health. There’s so much evidence of this harm and yet the mainstream media continues to push the establishment line that all vaccines are necessary and safe. Even when harm is mentioned, anodyne words and phrases are used about how the policy is well intentioned, for the greater good etc.
This is a difficult area for people exposed to the constant propaganda and brainwashing that masquerades as healthcare.

Autisme ontstaat door een stapeling van stress in de hersenschors
(neocortex). Deze stress
Als dan met 14 maanden de BMR en meningococcen C vaccins gegeven worden, kan de stress zo groot geworden zijn dat een grens overschreden wordt en de grote hersenen op hol slaan of in een soort stand-by functie gaan. Belangrijke functies van de hersenschors vallen dan uit. Maar dit omslagpunt kan net zo goed door heel andere stressmomenten bereikt worden, bijvoorbeeld door het doormaken van een simpele kinderziekte als waterpokken.
Wat u zelf kunnt doen om uw kind te helpen:
1. Visolie, 500-1000mg/dag, kunt u zelf al starten voordat u een deskundige raadpleegt. (kies voor goede kwaliteit gegarandeerd zonder zware metalen en pesticiden)
2. Vitamine C, water oplosbare vorm, 3x daags 500mg vanaf 2 jaar en vanaf 4 jaar 3 maal daags 1000mg; de vetoplosbare vorm (ascorbylpalmitaat) kunt u ook reeds starten,
3x daags 500mg vanaf 2 jaar en 3x daags 1000mg vanaf 4 jaar.
3. Zink tot 4 jaar 10mg, van 4 tot 8 jaar 20mg, daarboven 30mg.
4. Geef uw kind de beste voeding die er bestaat = een biologische voeding. Hiermee voorkomt u verdere belasting met zware metalen, pesticiden, smaakversterkers,
kleurstoffen, conserveringsmiddelen en andere toxische bijproducten.
5. Zuurdesembrood in plaats van gistbrood om de binding van zink tot een onoplosbaar complex met phytinezuur te voorkomen en zink in de voeding beschikbaar te houden
voor opname. Het volkoren zuurdesembrood is vaak zwaar, daarom is het beter te beginnen met gebuild zuurdesem dat veel lichter is.
6. Vermijdt suikers, zoet in het algemeen en kunstmatige zoetstoffen. Ze zijn giftig voor de darmen, alvleesklier en andere weefsels. Suikers verhinderen de productie van
EPA en DHA, beide omega-3 vetzuren die van levensbelang zijn voor de hersenen.
7. Vermijdt de overconsumptie van omega-6 vetzuren uit soja en mais die vooral in verwerkte producten zitten. Omega-3 vetzuren zijn ontstekingsremmend en omega-6
vetzuren zijn onstekingsbevorderend. Gebruik ongeharde vetten. Geharde vetten zoals in margarines bevatten transvetzuren die kankerverwekkend zijn.
De ideale verhouding tussen omega-3 en omega-6 vetzuren is 1:1, in de moderne voeding is die verhouding rond de 1:25.
8. Geef uw kind voldoende water, geen frisdranken of light producten.
9. Gebruik geen magnetron, het verlaagt de kwaliteit van alle voeding.
10. Zorg voor een rustige omgeving met niet teveel prikkels zoals die van TV, gameboy of computer.
11. Zorg dat uw kind goed geaard is met de aarde. Statische elektriciteit kan zowel emotionele/ mentale stoornissen als lichamelijke klachten geven. Vermijdt daarom
synthetische kleding, isolerende schoenen (rubber of plastic zolen) en nylon vloerbedekking. Laat het kind zo mogelijk op blote voeten lopen. Zorg dat er geen
elektrische apparatuur op zijn slaapkamer staat zoals elektrische wekker, TV of audio apparatuur.
12. Zorg voor een gezonde slaapplaats voor uw kind. In een gezond bed hoort geen metaal. Zo mogelijk dient het kind met het hoofd naar het noorden of oosten te slapen.
Een donkere kamer is belangrijk voor de productie van Melatonin. (slaaphormoon).
13. Vermijdt antibioticakuren daar ze de darmflora aantasten en daarmee de onderliggende problemen alleen maar erger maken. Kies bij infecties zo mogelijk voor
14. Verder kunnen met een constitutionele homeopathische behandeling van het kind, waarbij een geneesmiddel gekozen wordt dat grotendeels op het gedrag van het kind
gebaseerd is, specifieke aspecten van het autistische gedrag behandeld worden. Met het geneesmiddel Sacch./soms met andere constitutionele geneesmiddelen kan het
contact met de buitenwereld, het oogcontact, het gevoel etc. weer hersteld worden, met Cupr-met. kan de rigiditeit en obsessiviteit die zo kenmerkend zijn, weer

ASD AND HOMEOPATHIC INTERVENTION!
[Luc De Schepper, M.D.]
Background of ASD: hereditary factors
This homeopathic intervention is crucial in the ASD or autism epidemic. At this point and in the near future, many people will be forced to accept a struggle with life as autistic adults. This future tidal wave of maturing autistic population will soon overwhelm not only emotional and financial resources of families, bur Medicaid and state social services budgets. What is really at the heart of this debate? What has caused autism rates to grow so much in less than 20 years? The idea that it is just better diagnosed is preposterous. The epidemic is real and cannot be explained by saying the diagnosis skills of doctors suddenly improved in the late 1990s. A logical suggestion is that something changed in the 1990s. I have no doubt that one trigger like the number of mercury-based (thimerosal) vaccines given to children tripled in the ‘90s is one reason. But there is a lot more to it. Why don’t all children then react to these vaccines with autism? Can we predict who is more at risk? Homeopaths have the answer already: the common symptoms of ASD all point to the syphilitic inherited miasm (Expressions of the syphilitic miasm can be on the mental, emotional and physical plane). The homeopath can therefore expect that mercury-laden vaccines are a great trigger for all those children with a syphilitic family background, increasing the risk for ASD. Mercury is one of the greatest anti-syphilitic remedies! I read another remark from a well-meaning allopathic physician. She remarked, “This epidemic cannot be due to the sudden activation of a mystery gene in hundreds of thousands of children.” She does not know how she actually missed the boat. Homeopaths know that a dormant and latent miasmatic state (such as the syphilitic one) can be woken up by many triggers. So in fact, these triggers do activate the dormant gene! And vaccinations are not the only triggers: emotions, life style, diet, puberty, menopause, pregnancy, physical and mental triggers can activate latent miasmatic states anytime!
Often I am asked, “Are there certain remedies in homeopathy that are more specific for autism?” As usual we treat children with autism, not autism, so any of our remedies
can be indicated. There is not one autistic child “the same” than another. Our remedy selection is truly based how your ASD child is different than anyone else.
Common symptoms of ASD don’t help us finding the solution for your child. But I can tell you that some emotions suffered during the pregnancy are far more prevalent
than others: fear or fright and forsaken and feeling of abandonment suffered by the mom in pregnancy are very prevalent emotional triggers for the making of a challenged child. When you only look at the amount of remedies we have under these two emotions, then you see that the homeopath’s is a difficult one, not to be left in hands of those that are lazy, suffer from megalomania and lack of personal insight.
Some examples (does not include everything!):
Family history of mental disease such as alcoholism, depression, suicide, violence towards humans and animals, bipolar disorder, drug addictions, violent behavior in children, such as hitting, biting, cruelty, etc. The syphilitic mind is also dull, sullen, morose and mentally heavy. There are many diseases (names) referring to destruction on the physical plane: Alzheimer, ALS, Multiple sclerosis, S.D. or spastic dysphonia, all the auto immune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, colitis ulcerosa, Crohn’s disease, Hashimoto’s disease, etc. In other words any disease that involves destruction of tissues is syphilitic in nature. So in the family history of an ASD patient, we can and will find expressions of this miasm on any of the three levels in one or both parents and family. The consequence: the homeopath must choose as the simillimum a remedy that has great anti-syphilitic characteristics.
Any other remedy will be simply palliative, even worse suppressive, giving false hope to parents and homeopaths alike.
Triggers not asked for in allopathy and, alas, often not in homeopathy: the intra uterine emotional trauma.
There is one remark I want to make before you continue reading. I have the greatest empathy for any suffering in this world and for children, the future of our race I go always a step further if that is possible. These intra uterine questions that are an absolute must if the mystery of so many challenged children will be resolved can evoke many feelings of guilt and grief in parents who consciously and unconsciously already struggle enough with such emotions. It is certainly not my intention to increase any parents’ suffering, on the contrary. And words on paper can look cold and indifferent and that is the furthest of my intentions. When I teach this material worldwide, I accentuate to students that they must use empathy, love and compassion and explain to these parents that such information, although painful, is of the utmost importance in helping their child.
And I never had any parents who would refuse me such info. An added advantage is that the mom, who was subjected to an emotional trauma, will often need the same remedy as their child. Although the mom’s expressions are obviously different than her child, they are belonging to the same syphilitic miasm and to the same trigger, be it grief, fright, forsaken, etc. Many mothers have delegated such emotional trauma to their unconscious but such action does not equal to a disappearance of the emotional loaded issue. Often, painful and shameful memories are hiding in our unconscious, as a “shadow,” which like the Trojan horse, may be unleashed as soon as this high feeling complex is slightly touched upon.
It is the inferior and less commendable side of a person. The shadow is “he who follows behind,” our personal demon. The shadow corresponds to a negative ego-personality; it embraces all those characteristics whose existence is found to be painful and regrettable. After instants of appearance of his shadow man often says, “I was not my self;
I was beside myself.” And when the storm has blown over he likes to think that this strange “figure” has disappeared altogether, never to return. But this stranger (the shadow) merely returns to the unconscious, where it awaits its next opportunity to disturb the artificial peace of the mask. An autistic child is often a gift on many unexpected levels: but to no one more than to the mother since it will be the opportunity to look at herself and improve on every level. It is fascinating and greatly enjoyable for the homeopath
to see both mom and child improving on the same remedy. If anything the bond between mom and child is strengthened as they go through the same journey of healing.
Who else than such mom could understand and love her child so much?
I do not need a study to see how the foetus is influenced from day one of its existence by psychic pain endured by the mother. The homeopath sees everyday examples of such challenged children whose mother suffered from an emotional stress (forsaken, grief, deception, hearing bad news, etc.). Every homeopath can attest to this psychological “infection,” and if psychological pain can be felt and transferred from the mother, so can physical pain.
On the question, “How was your pregnancy,” the mother most likely will only concentrate on the physical aspect of her pregnancy (unless she was strongly depressed of course). If no physical problems such as nausea, threatening miscarriage, bleeding, mal position of the fetus, etc., were present, everything will be declared OK! Yet the most important triggers, the mental/emotional ones, those that can explain the unfortunate birth of a challenged child, remain unclear and uninvestigated not only by the allopaths, but equally by homeopaths.
It remains a mystery why allopathy in the year 2007 is still far removed from seeing a link between the mother’s emotions and the repercussion on the fetus, something that has been confirmed for a long time by TCM and even more by homeopathy. My guess is that allopathy has difficulties confirming such link because it tends to confirm its diagnoses with blood tests, X rays and other technical findings but obviously, such measures will not gauge the fetus’ emotions. I bet they would like to do pet scans of brains of pregnant moms to see if such maternal emotions change the fetal brain picture. But no such action has been taken yet. And what if allopathy finds deformities on such scans? Will that result in a therapeutic intervention? Of course I would not be surprised if allopathy would start giving tranquilizers and anti depressants to the pregnant mother.
Because the gynecologist and pediatrician never ask such “emotional” questions to see if there can be transference of emotions from the mom to the fetus, mothers never even think about it when the physician and homeopath ask them, “How was your pregnancy?” “Just fine,” they will say. And unfortunately, too many homeopaths will take such answer as an end to that question, missing therefore one of the most important pieces of the child’s simillimum: the true NWS or trigger. If the homeopath wants to find the simillimum as an investigator, he needs to go to the place of the trauma. Any good crime detective will go to the place of the crime to find out what is “unusual, peculiar and outstanding,” conducting an A153 investigation!
The following questions are important because they are often linked to ailments from, which in turn belong to important remedies that fit the picture of the challenged child (ADD, ADHD, ASD, OCD, etc.).
What was your first reaction when you heard you were pregnant?
Was the pregnancy desired by husband and or family?
Was your husband mostly at home or did he have to travel for work? Any estrangement from family/friends during pregnancy?
Any real conflicts with husband/family?
Was there physical and/or mental overwork during pregnancy?
What emotional events took place during pregnancy? For instance, fright, grief, hearing bad news, etc.
Was there a change in the family dynamic during the pregnancy?
Cravings and aversions during pregnancy? How was the birthing process? Emotional stress during breastfeeding?
What was physical condition and age of parents at time of conception?
I will only elaborate a little about the first question so the reader can understand the importance of these questions.
Was the pregnancy planned? Was it the right moment? What was your (mom’s) first reaction when you heard that you were pregnant?
The first person in line to alter the psychology of the pregnancy’s mental/emotional state is the mother. The first reaction triggers initial changes, since she is the first one hearing the news that she is pregnant or at least correctly assumes she is when she feels the changes in her body. Pregnancies are not always planned and often come as
a surprise. Often the very first reaction might be, “Oh, not right now!” I am just not ready for this because of…school, job, moving, relationship not going well, physically
and emotionally overwhelmed and probably another hundred reasons. I can not make up the reasons people chose for thinking this way. I heard “reasons” like”,
My pregnancy with you was the reason my career never got off the ground.” Here is another story: “I got pregnant on the pill (yes it can happen) and I was not sure I wanted this baby. I did not like the changes in my body and I was very doubtful
I could be a good mother since I had a history of bad temper.” It is interesting to see that this “mental/emotional” rejection of the fetus was followed by an attempt of physical rejection: in her last three weeks she was hospitalized with toxemia (BP 220/190) and the baby came out in a big gush of green water. “The placenta had died and had not been nurturing him for weeks (he was 5 pounds at birth). The baby refused the nipple and cried constantly, so I went in a total state of postpartum depression in which I was afraid
I would hurt him (indication for Sepia!!).”
Some women did not like to be pregnant in the first place. Some did not like to become “fat” as they thought they were ugly. Others were fatigued and exhausted throughout the pregnancy.
I had a mother who said she “resented to be tied down in bed, and to feel trapped as she wanted to go somewhere,” but to her frustration she could not do anything but lying bored in bed.
Another pregnant mother felt that her unborn child was “like an alien sucking all the energy out of her.” These are all emotions that will be carried over to the unborn fetus.
The thought, “I can’t be pregnant now” means outright rejection of the fetus’ first days of life and even an unconscious refusal of the mom to bond with the fetus. It might even get worse when the pregnant mom is plagued by strong pregnancy nausea and vomiting (hyperemesis gravidarum), which might evoke negative feelings towards the unborn baby. The homeopath should ask the exact first emotional reaction of the mom. Was it joy, anger, frustration, shock or maybe sadness because you always wanted to
be pregnant because you wanted to give your parents a grandchild and now they are deceased? Now this happy news of being pregnant can accentuate and resurface the buried grief, which makes the mother long for what could have been -- happy moments with her parents (homesickness). Sadness might also overshadow the happy news because the relationship with the husband is not going in the right direction or the young woman is caught in an unmarried situation.
There are infinite other examples from the practice. What most people don’t understand is that even if the emotion is only present for a few days, even hours, the impact on
the fetus can be great. It is easily seen in cases where there are two or more children in the family and only one is challenged: The homeopath should immediately investigate these pregnancies and look for the emotional trigger where the child was born challenged! Compare the different pregnancies and ask the mom, “What do you think was different in this pregnancy that resulted in this challenged child?”
The importance of these questions is of utmost importance to determine a possible mental/emotional factor that could trigger an ASD child. But without a syphilitic miasmatic background, such trigger will not create an ASD situation.
In the next paragraphs I want to discuss some of the issues that seem to come up. I can see how homeopaths can be confused, how could patients not be more confused
when they get such different information regarding homeopathy. When I taught in 14 different universities in India last year, the biggest complaint I heard from students was, “Why do we hear so many different approaches to homeopathy?” It should not be as long as homeopaths adhere to the Organon and Chronic diseases and if they want to add something new, it should be based on our natural basic Laws. Like there is only one form of Traditional Chinese Medicine, there is truly only one form of classical homeopathy. Alas, many homeopaths call themselves “classical,” but further investigations of their claims and in the way they practice homeopathy contradicts this firmly.
Let’s remember Mark Twain’s immortal words: “Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you want.” For this purpose I have written on my web site an article, “How to choose a homeopath.” I don’t want the reader to fall in the claws of unscrupulous practitioners who trample all the basics of homeopathy and have insufficient or no knowledge, no matter what title they have behind them. Read my article and question your homeopath before you spend in vain your money and even worse, before your hopes again are dashed.
New Diseases Require New Remedies?
Bogus! Homeopaths who claim such things are forgetting their first principle: the homeopath does not prescribe for the name of a disease but for a patient with a disease
What is certain is that homeopaths nowadays have more difficulties with the horrendous suppressions of allopathic interventions, but this happens with any disease name
for which patients are taking allopathic meds.
So now we could not treat pneumonia or asthma or eczema because people have created “new” pneumonias, asthmas, etc. through the intake of allopathic meds? Or we don’t have an answer with our “old” remedies for diseases like SARS, the Bird Flu, AIDS, Chronic Fatigue, the 4 Corner Disease and any new name allopathy has come up with? Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) which is 5,000 years old does not need to invent “new” acupuncture points to treat modern diseases. TCM doctors treat these modern diseases as effectively as 5.000 years ago and if Hahnemann would come back now he would be highly successful.
For any well-trained homeopath, it should be easy to determine the miasmatic expression of any allopathic disease name. Of course there are those homeopaths that do not believe in the miasmatic theory, which is a grave mistake. Let’s take the example of that illusive ASD or Autistic Spectrum Disorder. Some of the expressions (not all are mentioned) can be:
Avoiding eye contact
Withdrawal from people
Indifferent to other people
No facial expression
Aggressive: breaking, biting…
Mute (sometimes all their life)
Echolalia or robot-like voice
Freezing in position or rocking
Change in routine is disturbing
Rapid head growth
Fragile X syndrome: 5% have a defective X chromosome
Does not babble, point or make meaningful gestures by 1 year of age
Does not speak one word by 16 months
Does not respond to name
Does not know how to play with toys
At times hearing impaired
All these expressions are linked to the syphilitic miasm in homeopathy!
This means that autism can only be triggered in a child that has a syphilitic miasmatic family background (see before)! This should be taken in account when allopathy bombards these children with vaccinations that are mercury based! In other words, a homeopath can predict what child is at risk for ASD when they get these vaccinations. This leads to the next topic: the Use of Isopathy!
Is Isopathy homeopathy?
Isopathy is a word derived from, isos, the same, and pathos, disease referring to the maxim, that “the same cures the same.” This is NOT the same as our homeopathic dictum, “Like Cures Like,”
Here we talk of similarity, not the same! Isopathy came even more into vogue when Hering in 1833 started proving the first nosodes. However we need to see clearly what Hering had to say about these nosodes: “…they never succeed to cure but only ameliorating diseases…” Nosodes are truly curative only
when they are administered based on the totality of the characteristic symptoms like any other remedy! But at least nosodes are proven homeopathically. This isopathy
took even a greater turn for the wrong with Lux, a vet in 1833. Hahnemann reacted to these assertions when he stated that, the use of miasmatic material without potentization was crude isopathy, whereas its use in potencies is within the realm of homeopathy. The major difference between an isode and a homeopathic nosode is that a homeopathic remedy is proven on healthy people so that its symptom picture and therapeutic range are greatly expanded. The idem (isopathy) can only be used for the cure or prevention
of the same condition it causes. Isopathy, without the principle of the potentized remedy, is an extremely dangerous method. Once an isopathic substance is dynamized, it becomes a pure homeopathic agent and must be used accordingly to the cardinal principles of homeopathy (proving it before using it!). In summary, nosodes are not isopathic but homeopathic because they are proven and prescribed on the totality of the symptoms. The conclusion of Hahnemann, Hering, Dudgeon and so many eminent homeopaths was that isopathy’s use was limited and not curative.
Personally I have never used isopathy in my practice (and probably never will) as I have seen no need for it. “Clearing the effects of vaccine damage” sounds like the drainage techniques used by many French homeopaths.
The homeopath should keep in mind that there is only one simillimum for the case and that it will “clear” and “drain” all it needs to do without having to precede these remedies by detoxifying or clearing agents. This isopathy comes to the attention of parents because here and there a homeopath claims that the child was improved or cured
by isopathy. When an isopathic remedy cures it was only because that remedy was by chance homeopathic to the case! But let’s not imitate allopathy when they see one of
our remedies cure for instance a case of rheumatoid arthritis with a certain remedy and now they think it should cure the majority of their rheumatoid cases. This is called, “prescribing on the name of the disease.” If you think that your child was injured by the mercury in the vaccination (which is quite possible, (in fact there is no reason to keep on giving poison to children) than you must see if indeed Mercury symptoms appeared after such vaccination. Everyone can read the Mercury proving symptoms in our
Materia Medica. Otherwise rather look for another trigger (see my intra uterine questions) which are most likely more prevalent!
Factors to increase the risk of Autism
What happened to this boy K.?
My perception is this is a case of poisoning.
1st clue is that K. was mostly well, apart from the deafness in the right ear. The family history of cancer is significant - it is an indication of a higher susceptibility particularly
to MMR vaccine.
(There are dozens of factors which increase the risk of autism - genetic history is a major issue and I am careful to gather as much information as possible about the pregnancy and extended family history in these types of cases. Different genetic inheritance yields children which are more susceptible to various types of vaccines. There are many ways for children to become autistic and there are many types and manifestations of autism according to the unfortunate combination of inherited and environmental factors).
It is very important to note that not all children will be negatively affected by vaccines, and not all autism is associated with vaccine injury, but vaccines are a factor in more than 80% of cases I see of true autism.
Vaccines are an important, but usually a secondary factor in cases of Pervasive Developmental Delay.
2nd clue is the fact that he stopped breathing shortly after birth. He must have been blue at least for a short time in an episode of neonatal asphyxia. (from Hep B vaccin?)
3rd clue is the wet stools from birth. This indicates that there was already some inflammatory activity and lack of development in the gut before any vaccines, except perhaps Hepatitis B vaccine which is routinely given shortly after birth in America. (I think this Hep. B is a major contributor to jaundice in newborns.) This digestive weakness shows that K. already had some susceptibility to vaccines and foods from birth. I speculate it was the antibiotics and other drugs that the mother received for the tooth extraction before she realized she was pregnant that contributed to this digestive problem in K.
4th clue The timeline is the fourth clue. Note that K. was observed as developing normally socially and with language to his first birthday. There is even video evidence of his normal ability and conduct. After MMR there was a slow, insidious onset of symptoms over approximately six months which resulted in loss of social interest, speech, and intolerance of foods. This is typical for MMR vaccine related autism.
The timeline here is quite typical. Several years ago the most common presentation would be of a child that was injured by MMR would have early normal development and then be affected by an MMR jab at 12 months. Most often a bit of fever or fussiness would come after the jab.
Tylenol was almost always given (which always compounded the severity of the injury - don’t get me started about Tylenol….) by 18 months speech and social interest would be lost and gut problems would appear. Pediatricians would typically stall the parents - “he’s just a late talker,” etc.
Diagnosis of autism or Pervasive Development Delay-Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS) would come by age three or four depending on the severity of damage the child had sustained.
(PDD-NOS would be a more common diagnosis where motor planning problems were more evident rather than where primarily speech and social deficits presented.)
These days the timeline is a bit different for children developing symptoms as a related to MMR injuries. Now for children where MMR is likely a factor, the onset generally comes later and the diagnosis comes earlier. What we see now is slightly atypical development at 15 to 18 months with loss of social interest and speech by 24 months.
The prognosis for these children is better since their injury came later, is milder, and because diagnosis and treatment come earlier. The later onset and milder injury have likely arisen because thimerosal has recently been removed from MMR and many other, but not all childhood vaccines.
Thimerosal is one of many metals and chemicals commonly present in vaccines as stabilizers to extend shelf-life of the vial of vaccine. Thimerosal is more than 50% mercury
by weight. The diagnosis comes earlier because Autism is a more popular diagnosis and pediatricians are very interested to make such a diagnosis even if the evidence is for PDD-NOS or some other problem. Is it clear that thimerosal is not the only problem, although it has been the focus of most of the Autism advocacy groups and most scientists and physicians.
5th clue: paroxysms of violence.
K. was actually suffering from something like minor seizures which would come on suddenly and result in his attacking his mother and others. We see that he would also strike his head. This is never a good sign and it frequently presents in cases of head or brain injury and autism.
In this case, K. suffered short suddenly intense pains in the head which he responded to by pressing or striking his head very hard, hitting his head or doing head stands.
So intense was his distress, without any other ability to express his suffering with language, he would strike, pinch, bite, kick and injure others, most commonly his mother. Sometimes these children strike their heads against a wall or floor, or they use their fists or hands to strike their heads.
The striking results from two things:
1th is that this is a proprioceptive response - similar to when you rub your knee after bumping or injuring it.
2nd the children are trying to relieve a kind of "stuckness” in their cranium. (The brain will contract in the presence of a vaccine - think of how a slug shrivels when salted.
This contraction is painful, and it slows recovery since blood and cerebrospinal fluid circulation to the brain is impaired). By beating their heads, the children are trying to
free up their contracted brains.) Osteopathic Manipulative Therapy can often be very helpful to these children as it was to K. Homeopathy proved to be profoundly helpful
for K. as well. Cuprum will not be the last remedy K. will need, but he may benefit from it for the foreseeable future. The main clues about the next remedies will again be found in his family history of illness, his desire to swing, jump, swim and play outdoors.
Also his fascination in tearing leaves is likely to help us find the next remedy.
My clinical experience in treating hundreds of autistic and other brain injured children has given me an opportunity to identify common features with autistic children, their history, and their prognosis.
In general the children:
1) Are uncommonly beautiful, and have symmetrical faces, frequently with long lashes. They may be quite hairy down the spine.
2) Are usually small in stature, but with a large circumference head.
3) Usually have at least one special talent or ability and also some definite areas of deficient functioning.
4) Usually at least above average intelligence if not gifted.
5) Have their entire physiology impacted - it’s not just social disinterest and speech delay.
6) Benefit greatly from gluten free and casein free diets.
7) Loves to eat what aggravates them.
8) Generally don’t absorb nutrients very well and this delays recovery; they are malnourished. It is therefore important to address this in treatment from the beginning.
Most biomedical approaches focus on this. (DNA protocol, etc.)
9) Frequently have problems eliminating - gut problems are usually present.
10) Exhibit stimming behavior. Examples of stimming are repetitive arm or hand flapping, spinning, swinging.
11) Feel better from deep pressure. (But simply giving zinc usually yields disappointing results).
12) Find transitions very difficult, moving from one activity or location to another usually leads to an upset.
13) Prefer to be outdoors rather than indoors. Circle time at school is not interesting.
14) Love music and videos. Frequently they can sing before they can talk.
15) Are echolalic at first when speech begins to return. Echolalia is the name for the behavior where the child will repeat only what he has been prompted to say.
It’s a good sign, although the parents are frequently upset and frustrated by it.
16) Retain ability to receive language. Expressive language is more the problem.
17) Recover social interest first and this drives their interest to speak.
