The data and observations I have gathered from previous patients leave me in very little doubt as to the ‘cause’ of autism. I believe the primary root cause to be disruption to normal immune system function and detox pathways, usually due to a ‘toxic overload’. There are many ‘risk’ factors for this, but in general it is a combination of genetic predispositions, compromised immunity, poorly functioning elimination organs, dietary sensitivities and gut issues. Heavy metals are often implicated in the autistic picture. Vaccines, overuse of antibiotics, steroids, and other medications are often important factors that are addressed during treatment.
I ask parents to create a ‘toxcity timeline’ using my checklist so I can carefully assess exactly what happened when.
The treatment works layer by layer, using homeopathic remedies to gently nudge your child into detoxifying poisonous agents and residual viral and bacterial elements that are still wreaking havoc within their body and brain. It is not a magic bullet, and parents should be prepared for treatment to take time, although I would expect to see noticeable gains within the first few months. The treatment is safe, gentle, non-toxic, and non-addictive.
Homeopathic principles can be hard to wrap our scientific heads around, but seeing is believing. If you are unsure, you may be interested to read some of the more recent Testimonials from my clients. I also urge you to read some of the suggested books and sites in my resources page.
Please contact me with any further questions you might have regarding the treatment, or homeopathy in general. I am always happy to talk to prospective clients via Skype if this is preferable.
