Jean Lacombe (Homeopathy with Edel)
Many cases of children suffering autism can be greatly improved through homeopathy. In fact, some of the patients can have a complete recovery.
Two homeopathic approaches in treating autism
In the last years I have developed two protocols that resulted in significant improvement of young patients. The first is prescribing a remedy according to the principle of “totality of symptoms” recommended by Hahnemann. While treating my autistic patients I have noticed that in many cases the prescription generally groups around ten homeopathic remedies.
The second approach is to “desensitize” the children from the possible side effects of vaccines they received by prescribing the homeopathic remedy made from the vaccine itself. This method can be recommended as an experimental approach when parents have clearly noticed that the child’s character and behavior changed during the days following vaccination. In many cases it appears that MMR vaccine – measles, mumps and rubella– sometimes produces large energetic disturbances as well as major disruptions of the defense system. When this occurs, MMR itself in dilutions of 30C to 10M would be prescribed. Recommendations about the potency of the remedy will be discussed later in this article.
After a year of treatment, the diagnosis of autism was reversed for one of the boys. The first prescribed remedy was Natrum Mur 30ch. Immediately the mother noticed that her son’s speech improved and that he had a greater desire to communicate. Tuberculinum and particularly Carcinosinum in doses of 30, 200, 1M and 10M K alleviated the symptoms of groups 1 and 2 by over 80%. The child has since been accepted into a regular classroom.
The second patient responded very quickly to the prescription of 200K and 1M of Carcinosinum. Most symptoms of groups 1 and 2 were improved by about 50%. The child continues to take Carcinosinim 1M once a month.
For the third patient, the symptoms of groups 1 and 2 were reduced by more than 80% after doses of Natrum Mur (30C to 10M) .His treatment lasted for 18 months.
Over a period of 8 months, the fourth child had extraordinary results with Carcinosinum 30, 200, 1M and 10M. Considering that we had the situation under control with Carc we decided to continue treatment with MMR. It was clear for the mother that the child’s personality had changed in the days following the MMR vaccination. After administering the MMR 10M, the parents saw that their child had become normal again! A strong desire to communicate at home and at school, laughing, humor in the classroom. The boy refused to sit down when his teacher asked, but looked at the teacher with open eyes and a wide smile! He is able to sleep alone, wakes up happy now and dresses himself. A new symptom of a bad breath appeared. Over the last three months MMR 10 M was prescribed once monthly. The boy is speaking more all the time. He looks obviously “happy.”
A last child had no reaction to the prescription of the second approach. The successive doses of DTP vaccine (diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis), then a dose of Sabin / Hepatitis / Meningitis / influenza vaccine, and subsequently a dose of MMR were taken with no results, but increasing amount of stool. I then chose the first approach and gave the boy Carcinosinum 30, 200, 1M and 10M. There was no significant reaction, except a new tendency to bite. Troubled by the total ineffectiveness of these two prescriptions I reviewed the case and prescribed a single dose of Stramonium 10 M (hyperactivity following vaccination, autism, desire to bite). The treatment is ongoing. What a helplessness feeling it was when a normally effective approach led to a minimum of overall improvement!
The choice of the potency
The treatment of these 5 cases during the last three years was a relatively recent experiment. Four of the five patients are still in the process of recovery. I would like to confirm that high dilutions (1M, 10M) of the remedies used are more effectives and provide better results. For many years I taught my students at Quebec Homeopathic Centre the principle that “totality of symptoms leads to the choice of remedy, as the nature of the symptoms leads to the choice of potency.” In the case of autism the symptoms are very characteristic and particularly intense. It looks like the vital energy is very powerful and therefore, it would require high dilutions of the prescribed remedies to restore balance.
In all cases of autism It is possible to reduce or eliminate many of the distressing symptoms in autistic children. In many cases it is possible to achieve complete recovery in these patients! At this stage of my experience I have found that the treatment of autism does not seem not to be very difficult as long as the appropriate remedy has been chosen. The symptoms presented in the cases are very characteristic (see groups 1 and 2) and they lead to a rather limited number of homeopathic remedies. Additionally, when considering that the vaccination is the trigger of the disease, the prescription of remedies such as Carcinosinum, Tuberculinum, Nat Mur, and Medorrhinum appears to be almost inevitable.
The less “classic” sequential approach can be equally effective in treating autism. This relatively easy to use method can also give surprising results. I hope that sharing these experiences will stimulate discussion of these methods and lead to many more successful healings.
