Have you ever noticed when you cut yourself, your body immediately begins to heal the wound? We are created to heal – the body has innate wisdom about how to heal itself. But unfortunately, in our modern world, our bodies do not always have a clear path, nor the information needed to allow for healing.
This is especially true in the case of autism where a host of complex issues including systemic inflammation, detoxification challenges, immune system confusion and emotional trauma. These factors create blockages to proper internal communication and healing in the body. Fortunately, homeopathy has answers.
Homeopathy is a scientific approach to healing that uses natural substances to stimulate the body’s innate healing capabilities. Discovered over 200 years ago by German physician Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, homeopathy provides the body with unique energetic information according to the principle that like cures like. In other words, any substance that can produce symptoms in a healthy person can cure those same symptoms in a sick person. For example, we are all familiar with poison ivy; it causes blisters, itching, redness, and stiff muscles. However, when the poisonous plant is prepared homeopathically and given in the form of a homeopathic remedy, it can be used to stimulate healing for everything from a poison ivy rash to eczema, arthritis, and even herpes.
Remedies can be made of any substance imaginable: animal, mineral, vegetable, or intangible (i.e. x-ray or cell phone radiation). Isopathic remedies are a specific class of remedies made from a safe preparation of the toxic causative substance, such as a heavy metal or vaccine. These remedies are often vital to unlocking the case and allowing deep healing, especially when used in combination with other supportive remedies to aid the body with gentle detoxification and immune repair.
Over the years, I have used homeopathy to facilitate healing in hundreds of clients. Although my original training was in classical homeopathy, clinical experience has shown that with autism, it is rarely sufficient to achieve complete healing. Sequential homeopathy with the use of Isotherapy is, in my experience, the key to healing.
With sequential homeopathy we systematically “clear” the toxic burden load with carefully selected homeopathic remedies based on the history and unique needs of each individual/child. This allows for gentle detoxification, support of key organs and tissues, healing of emotional trauma, and a true rebalancing of the immune system. Because homeopathic detoxification is gentle, it allows healing to occur at the pace that is best for each individual.
For example, one of my client’s, Allison (3 years old) presented with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder, severe insomnia, parasites, food intolerance, and environmental sensitivities. Although she had a few words, she was not able to engage in meaningful communication. Using a combination of sequential homeopathy, lifestyle coaching with her parents, and homeopathic immune supports she completely recovered in 18 months. She is now excelling in school and life.
Since each child is unique and the symptoms of autism can present in such diverse ways, I have been compelled over the past 7 years to explore many methodologies. These include various types of homeopathy, applied kinesiology (to test and determine the best remedies, foods, and supplements to assist with healing), energy healing, and herbal formulas to address layers of toxins (including pathogens, environmental toxins, pre-birth toxins, emotions and many more), and to re-balance the immune system.
In my career, I have been blessed to be a part of the healing process for many children and families. To read more about some of the families I have worked with please click here.
