Homeopathy For Autism
Homeopathy is a very different concept to grasp. It is based on the Law of Similars. This law states that “a disease can be cured by a substance if that substance can cause, in a healthy person, symptoms similar to those of the disease.” The word homeopathy comes from “homeo” meaning similar and “pathy” meaning suffering.
This excerpt was taken from the book, The Impossible Cure, by Amy Lansky. It is my favorite book about homeopathy for two reasons: firstly, it is written for the layperson and is very easy to understand; secondly, the author, Amy Lansky, also has a child who “was” on the autism spectrum. After her son’s 18-month measles, mumps, rubella shot he began exhibiting symptoms of autism. Homeopathic remedies have since cured him. For the whole story you can read all about it in her book. Listen to podcast #60 with Amy Lansky here.
Homeopathy can repair the damage done by vaccinations including the body’s response to allergies, asthma, and behavioral problems that are a result of vaccinations. A homeopathic remedy should help the body do what it needs to do. It is used to inspire the vital force. Homeopathy works on susceptibility. It comes from recognizing the weakness in the body that has already occurred and the symptoms that are already present.
A “constitutional” remedy takes in both mental and physical components. The homeopathic doctor will take into account every aspect. The emotional and physical components are accounted for in order to help understand the larger picture of a person’s distress. Treatment is determined, generally, by matching symptoms. There is a common factor in that homeopaths take into account what is unusual about an individual’s pattern. Remedies are specific to each individual. Be patient, it can take some time for a good homeopath to find the proper remedy.
With the assistance of homeopathic practitioners my children and I have received constitutional remedies. The constitutional remedy Thuja was also prescribed for my son Jacob by a homeopathic doctor. Thuja assists with nervousness around strangers, is helpful for extra sensitive people, and addresses any residual susceptibility or symptoms from vaccines that his body carries, has adapted to, or compensates for. The remedy inspires the vital force to restore that back to health.
I too am a true believer in homeopathy. Every member of my family has benefited from its use. We have all used the over-the-counter, commercial flu remedy Oscillococcinum by Boiron for years with great success.
Amy Lansky’s book is filled with homeopathic remedy studies on all kinds of illnesses. Homeopathy is a proven medical method with hundreds of double blind, placebo-controlled studies done over decades. A man by the name of Wayne Jonas, MD, who was the former director of the Office of Alternative Medicine at the National Institute of Health, has coauthored another great book on homeopathy and homeopathic research studies called, Healing With Homeopathy: The Complete Guide (Jonas and Jacobs).
It may be helpful to know that homeopathic doctors can work long distance on the phone or by Skype. This can be great news if you live in a tiny town far away from any homeopaths. I will pass on a name to you from an interview I heard on Autism One radio. The mother of a child diagnosed with autism spoke only long distance with homeopathic Doctor Robert Ullman in Edmonds, Washington. Dr. Ullman provided the mother with a homeopathic remedy that cured her son of his symptoms. Dr. Ullman can be found at www.healthyhomeopathy.com. Dr. Ullman offers a FREE 15 minute consultation too.
The main homeopathic doctor directory is, www.homeopathicdirectory.com, or www.homeopathy-cures.com.

Homeopaths try to determine the individual’s susceptibility, i.e. Individual weaknesses in the vital force, to both cure and prevent a re-occurrence of symptoms. By the way it was good to read your article.
