1. The first method is selecting a homeopathic remedy protocol that will serve to stimulate the healing mechanism of your child. This holistic and natural treatment for autism is intended to bring your child back into balance so that he can move forward towards better health mentally, emotionally and physically. We will know that these are the correct remedies when symptoms begin to improve. Sometimes the first symptoms to improve and even disappear completely are the G-I symptoms. This change alone can make a big difference, because these issues can affect not only your child’s comfort, but also his healing going forward. The G-I system represents at least 80% of the immune system. In any case, your child’s body innately knows where to start his healing.
2. When we run into healing blocks, or “obstacles to cure” there are methods that can be used in order to remove them, such as the CEASE Autism Now method. Remedies specific to these blocks will be employed as a natural treatment for autism. One example would be: a child whose autistic behaviors worsened after surgery where the child took days to recover from the anesthesia can be given homeopathic remedies to address the long term imprint of the anesthesia. Any other medicine will be addressed as well if indicated.
In order to remove these “obstacles to cure”, the correct homeopathic remedies would be given in specific intervals in order to open these blockages from most recent to early childhood and even sometimes Mom’s pregnancy and labor and delivery. There is seldom one factor alone that has brought your child to the diagnosis of the autism spectrum. All of the potential factors may need to be addressed.
Once these obstacles to cure have been cleared, progress can more easily kick back in and your child and your family will be well on the way to a healthier and happier life.
I have consulted with parents of many autistic children in my practice, and have found they have experienced very many positive changes in behavioral and relationship skills after the correct homeopathic remedies. The younger the child, the better the prognosis.
With a few children, some vast improvements can come very quickly. More often, recovery is a longer process. Almost always, with the correct homeopathic remedies, there will be progress all along the way. As with any illness the earlier the treatment has begun, the quicker and deeper your child’s recovery will be.
CEASE AUTISM NOW trained. Pamela also uses a modified method of the CEASE protocol which includes removal of obstacles to cure. Also she selects the lower homeopathic potencies to ensure minimal or non-existent aggravations during path to cure. I do not believe in “no pain, no gain.” The organs can only do what they can do at any given time.
Responses vary, of course. Generally, the first response that comes within a month or two after using a natural treatment for autism, will be a little more eye contact and interest in other people. Within a month or two I find that children whose parents are treating their child with homeopathy for autism will find that their children are simply happier and look healthier. They are getting along better with their siblings. Eating issues often begin to resolve, thin kids will put on weight (see my failure to thrive page). I see that comprehension sometimes starts to increase pretty quickly. The most exciting result is that when they can look at Mom or Dad and say “I love you” or when they are able to put sentences together better if they are already speaking.
As always, a child’s restoration to health varies in time and level of improvement. However, every time I have consulted on a case where the parents have committed to their choice of homeopathy as an alternative treatment of autism I have seen major improvements.
