This lasted for 2 years of preschool. She also started stuttering as she learned to speak she was an early talker and stuttered very badly. The teacher recommended she not start Kindergarten at 5 due to her lack of participation in class and her weak social skills. We started homeopathy for my daughter with Farah Gron. I started to notice that the refluxing and the stuttering could be controlled with the remedies my daughter was taking.
They had been going on for years. She won a medal for academic excellence one of three in her class and she loved school! Her confidence increases every day. She just started a new school and faced the first day without anxiety but with excitement! We believe God saved our daughter and He used homeopathy to do it!
We recommend Farah Gron and homeopathy to anyone who will listen! Elizabeth Anne from Nairobi kenya elizabethritho yahoo. Autism My name is ElizabethMy son was diagnosed with autism at the age of two years after he took an antibiotic for a serious infection he had. Although we were devasted we were lucky enough to receive alot of information at the same time from parents who had retrieved their children from this terrible disease.
The important key remains early intervention before the age of 8 years. I was able to put him on occupational therapy, i put him on a diet free ofsugar ,wheat, milk and milk products.
His diet comprises camel milk which has gut healing properties, natural honey which you must be careful to ensure id not adulterated or if you can do without it totally that iis even better and give more natural foods, sweet potatoes, rice, maize flour chicken and fish, do not give any meat, for breakfast i do cereals with a maize base such as cornflakes, porrige, rice flakes, ceravita flakes, do not give macoroni or sphagetti as they have gluten but instead give buckwheat and rice and corn macoroni from healthy U stores.
Plenty of fruit at break time in school is what i give himi stay away from cakes, biscuits etc, he caries grapes, mangoes, oranges, carrot sticks,watermelon, maize based bites i. I also give flaxseed oils omega to boost immunity and brain function with DMG to assist with speech all these alongside the Homeopathy which works on healing his entire internal mechanism including the damage inflicted on the brain and gut by vacinnes and antibiotics.
If i have had to give any antibiotics i have been very careful indeeed to buy an good multivitamin to give alongside it as antibiotics destroy the good bacteria.
It has been amazing seeing my son emerge from a prison of silence and solitude. I have been able to now transfer him into normal school but with upto 10 children in his class to allow him to socialize with children who speak and it took him exactly a year to become verbal he now reads and writes.
At home i have plenty of pop corn parties in my house so that i allow other children to come and play with him to allow him to work on his social skills. At fist he would hide under his bed or behind a chair each time they came but now he plays with all of them. Autistic children may also be dyslexic but a programme used world over known as KUMON has given my son a new lease and grip on reading skills as well as plenty of confidence i started him only with english at age 6 and he is now able to read and write very very well now.
He started to read at age 6 and a half and is reading very well. I thank God every day i think about how far he has come from the nightmare of that initial diagnosis and i am here to give hope that it can be done.

Early intervention before age of 8 years is very very important. My number is kenya. I hope i have helped some body out there. He is our oldest child, and so I was new to all of this and wanted only to do what was best for my son. Brandon has always been very intelligent, scoring very high on California Achievement Tests, learning everything I taught him we homeschool amazingly quickly. But he had his "issues" that were very difficult for me to work with.

One of these that was very pronounced were these horrible rage attacks that would occur at least once daily. I would never know what would set them off. And, once they'd get going, there would be absolutely nothing I could do for him but wait it out.
I would hold him on my lap, usually on the floor, in literally a "straighttjacket"-type hold, and just calmly wait. When he got too big for me to do this, I would make sure there was nothing around he might be able to hurt himself or anything else with and, again, just wait.
I learned a "placid" look quite well. I also learned well to not react to things he'd say or do, because it would just make him worse. Being our oldest, I really didn't know what best to do. Being one who has always liked "natural" things, I used many natural techniques I learned about. It seemed to no avail.
I finally took him in to a "specialist" psychologistwho saw him stacking blocks and quickly determined a "possible Asperger's" for him-- and referred us on to a psychiatrist.
This subsequently led, of course, to medications for him-- SSRIs and mood stabilizers and the like. The first one he was on I was told he'd have to have his liver checked every few months, "just to be safe. I felt from the beginning that all this was simply a bandage, not really addressing the problem, just kind of blanketing it all in. When I'd bring him in for his regular check-ups, the doctor would not interact with Brandon at all-- he'd just have Brandon off playing with toys in his office and talk to me about him.
He wanted to know if the meds he was prescribing were working. It drove me nuts. I finally found and purchased the book, The Bipolar Child. That's where I learned about Omega-3 fish oils and how they helped with depression.
Then I removed high fructose corn syrup, and was very pleased with how that helped him. I'd tell this to the doctor, and he'd basically, only slightly interested, say, "Really? Well, I'll write that down. This is not something I'd necessarily recommend-- it's simply what I did. During this time, I learned about homeopathy through a special needs e-mail list I was on. I was very intrigued and ended up taking two courses in it. It has become our family's first medical approach of choice.
I have since also read Amy's book, Impossible Cure-- and I most highly recommend this to anyone interested in learning about homeopathy. It quickly got to the point that Brandon and his siblings became better than me at reading ingredient labels at the stores!
Brandon knew the positive difference avoiding certain things was making in his life.Dance Moms Chloe Lukasiak Paige Hyland Meet and Greet 12/8/13 Washington DC
However, he would still have the rage attacks at least once a day. And I was beginning to find myself nearly at my wits', end, trying to find a good, natural way to work with this. We moved to my home state of Montana. And it was then that I kind of stumbled into a homeopath very well known for working with children on the autism spectrum. During Brandon's initial visit with her done using SkypeBrandon answered one question of hers a certain way, and she immediately knew what he needed. She sent a single dose of a remedy.
Brandon has not had a rage attack since. And he's been med-free since very shortly thereafter. I now consider Brandon a pretty "normal" year-old. I am very confident he's going to have a very successful future.
When used properly, homeopathy is absolutely amazing, helping the body heal itself. I highly recommend it for everyone. Thank you, Amy for your book and for having this website to help further people's knowledge of homeopathy. It is called 'Homeopathy-and-SN'.

He adores pasta and made some for family dinner. When he was going to pour out the boiling water, it slipped and spilled all over his left foot. It was probably my mother's instinct that told me his simple words of, "Ow! I ran to where he was pulling off his sock, trying to figure out what to do. Having burned my hand pretty badly not a year earlier, I knew the homeopathic approach of getting his foot into warm water would probably be best for him. I had him sit down on the couch as I put some warm water in a bowl.
By that time, I could tell the pain was beginning to settle in. I had seen that the skin was already peeling off the top of his foot, where the leg bone meets it. I had also seen some very large blisters already emerging. I brought the bowl to him. But shock was settling in on him, and he refused to put his foot into it, screaming it was too hot, though he had put his hand and other foot in it and it wasn't.
For his foot-- and for his state of mind-- it was. So I finally decided, as I was trying to calm my own panic, to cease arguing with him. I cleaned his foot the best I possibly could, then pulled out the silvadene I still had and carefully put this on his foot, wrapping it loosely with gauze. I knew what was most important was to keep it clean. I used my own first aid knowledge. I also consulted my brother, who had been severely burned over his entire body in an accident several years before.
He told me that I absolutely needed to pop the blisters. I popped the biggest ones, leaving the skin on. This definitely made the injury much easier to treat. An osteopath subsequently confirmed that this is the best thing to do for burn blisters.
He also told me Joshua would need some debridement. Our homeopath, while she lives in a city some distance from us and our appointments with her are via skype and phone calls, has always been very attentive to our needs, and we have enjoyed working with her. I e-mailed her as soon as I could regarding Joshua.
She reminded me of the homeopathic remedies good for burns, Urtica Urens and Cantharis. I had both of these in 30C. So I first used the Urtica, and quickly ran out of what I had. I emailed her a picture taken not 24 hours after the injury see photo1and we had an emergency appointment with her very soon thereafter. She overnighted Joshua a very high potency dose of Cantharis, which I gave to him as soon as it arrived.
In just more than a day after he took the remedy, the bloody oozing that was happening from the uppermost burn had ceased, and new skin was forming under the entire burn area. I continued having Joshua soak his foot twice a day, putting an herbal salve or silvadene on it and wrapping it in clean gauze every time. It was about a week later that I was able to get him in to see a wound specialist for some debridement, just three days after Joshua took the high potency remedy our homeopath sent.
The skin was already dramatically improving see photo2. I was unsure about how the skin looked, though red and rather shiny.

Is it going to need to be removed during this debridement? I was cautiously optimistic about it. The doctor came in and did some debriding of his foot. He said, for what it is, it's looking quite good, and that I'd need to bring Joshua back in once or twice more and that would be all.
As soon as the doctor left, the attendant smiled and told me she would be surprised if I had to bring him back at all. Throughout all this, to his great credit, once Joshua had gotten over his initial shock, he remained remarkably optimistic and positive throughout this whole endeavor. I know this helped him - and it provided me a lot of strength as well. I continued keeping it clean, replacing the bandaging twice a day and applying the silvadene.
I didn't have to have him soak it any more, after the debridement. It was only a few days later that I noted how beautifully his foot was healing and was beginning to wonder if I even needed to continue doing this. Exactly a week after his first appointment with the debridement doctor, I unwrapped his foot, telling Joshua we'd leave the bandages off for a while.
I looked at how good his foot looked and how much he was doing with it see photo3 So I called the wound center to ask if I truly needed to bring him back in.
I told the nurse what was going on and then I could hear the smile on her face as she told me that if his foot looked as good as it did -- the coloring coming back and nothing still open and oozing -- not only did I not need to bring him back, but I didn't even need to bandage it up any more at all. To say I was relieved to hear this is very much an understatement. Three weeks to the day that this injury occurred, if you were to look at his foot, you would have no idea how bad it looked see photo4.
He can move it fully, walk on it, and even wear a shoe without any problems at all. I thank everyone who helped, noting especially his homeopath and homeopathy, Joshua's positive outlook, and Divine Intervention in the complete healing of his foot. I literally thank God for homeopathy! Susan Walterich from Buffalo, NY susanwalterich gmail. He had no spontaneous language, little eye contact and it was very difficult to get his attention. After diet and vitamins, we saw some improvement, and I started doing some research to see what else we could do.
Part of this research was seeing an alternative doctor and attending conferences where many doctors spoke. But it was very expensive and seemed very overwhelming with so many things that needed to be done. When I read Impossible Cure it really resonated with me. It seemed to be a simpler, gentler, and surprising, less expensive approach We started with a homeopath when my son was three and saw immediate improvements. Every week we were amazed at the progress he was making.
And the improvements continued. But though my son was light years from where he was when he was diagnosed, he was still clearly on the spectrum. Then came something worse--the worst word that can be associated with autism and that is regression of his autism. Around age 6, my son starting experiencing tics.
We continued to work with our homeopath, and my son would improve for a while, only to see the tics return again and again. We continued on this cycle for about two years when we decided to work with another homeopath, someone who had more experience with PANDAS. In a year's time, my son has not only moved past the tics and regression, but has improved dramatically. In terms of his social skills, I see little evidence of autism anymore.
He recently performed in his school talent show, and starred in a play at theater camp. I am so happy that we decided to use homeopathy with my son, and I am grateful to both homeopaths that we worked with, as well as to Amy for bringing homeopathy to our attention with her book.
Yolanda Baker from Austin biteyourbills yahoo. Autism Last year I decided to look into other treatments for my 5 year old autistic son. He had been diagnosed at 18 months and had made great progress. However, I wanted something beyond supplementation and therapy.
I found Amy's book and found it fascinating. I found a classical homeopath in Austin who read Amy's book and started treatment in June When I gave him his remedy for the first time, I found him awake the next morning at 3am, something he always did, but always between 4 to 5am.
Every time the dosage was increased or changed, he would be awake the next morning at 3am. After just a few weeks, his 4am wake up ritual of clapping, humming, and singing stopped. He rarely wakes up that early anymore.
He is now more aware of his surroundings, and will usually follow simple commands. I believe the combination of his ABA therapy, the Specific Carbohydrate Diet and the homeopathic remedy has helped him tremendously. Ana Campos from Los Angeles anacamposrn hotmail. Warts Warts healed with Homeopathic Arnica Ointment My 8 years old son was diagnosed with Warts a non cancerous skin growths caused by a viral infection in the top layers of skin.
The virus that causes warts is called The Human Papilloma Virus. Marcelo takes swimming lessons years round and probably he got the virus in the showers at the gym. He showed me 3 areas located on the soles of his feet.
He told me it was very painful. It seemed to me like very strange callous. His pediatrician gave the diagnostic of warts and a referal for the dermatology. I was very concerned for this new infection. As a baby he had an inmune system disorder and most of the time he was sick for the firt 2 and a half years of his life. On Thursday June I took him to the dermatology to one of the most prestigious hospitals in town Cedar Sinai.
The doctor told me cure warts was a very long process that will take many visits to her office. She applied acid to the affected area. She told me the acid will make a blister. On Friday June I received a call from school, my son was in so much pain he was not able to walk. The acid had burned the skin so much, made a tremendous blister, and created so much pain. I regreted my decision of taking my son to the dermatology.
I wished so much if I could turn back time. I picked my son from school and he could not walk any more. I had to hold on to him. I was hoping tomorrow he is going to feel better.
Saturday and Sunday went by with no improvement. I bought Arnica Ointment.
I started applying arnica to the blisters and covering them with bandages once in the morning and once at bed time. I contined with the treatment for the next couple of weeks.
Every day there was improvement and Marcelo was walking and running again. On Wednesday July Marcelo had appointment with another dermatology. The blisters and the warts were completed healed. I did not take my son to his appointment. Why not put your money where your mouth is, and make a small donation? Alternatively, you might make a small donation to any other cancer treatment center.
Log in to post comments By lilady not verified on 12 Feb permalink It's all in how deep their ideas go, really. I've seen plenty of people who have an idea planted deep into their minds, and they cannot let it go no matter what. Someone who is losing a battle with cancer may very well be inclined to hope, and then someone else comes along and implants the idea that the cure for cancer is out there but the government is keeping it from them.
The idea is seeded and grabs on because of that hoping for a miracle. You can reason with folks like that. You can show them all the evidence in the world. But their mind is made up, and all we can do is carry on. Log in to post comments By Ren not verified on 12 Feb permalink So, prn, you think the problem is that science is not working fast enough for some people?
If that is the problem, how would you suggest that be resolved? If you have a cure for high blood pressure go win yourself a Nobel prize. Beta blockers are the best we have had since the s.
They are used because they work, but unfortunately they work on many systems, not just blood pressure. Also, doctors try many things first before giving a patient beta blockers. They try to have the patient drink more water, quit smoking, get more exercise, lose weight, cut excess salt out of their diet. See, they are trying to cure it before giving medicine, the only way anyone knows how.
See, I have high blood pressure and no one ever tried to give me beta blockers so that they could give me more medicine. I actually have to take a biologic for it because it is immune system related. Log in to post comments By Shay not verified on 12 Feb permalink Eric- well put, thanks. I've yet to see nasty comments left on patient blogs or pages from skeptics. However, I've no doubt based on the behaviour of Burzynski fans on Twitter that they would have any problem at all posing as skeptics and doing such things.
I also can envision "helpful" skeptics leaving anti-Burzynski comments in these places. Certainly most of the people I know would never do such a thing. It's all part of the campaign to paint the people shining the light on Burzynski as evil and anti-patient. Oddly, our esteemed and gracious host doesn' make the list, although a visitor to RI does. Many patients don't want that degree of restrictions or expense, and want a different set of options.
The current "standard" approvals and insurance system embraces a glacially slow system that often uses outdated techniques, sends patients home empty handed despite often cheap options, or forces them into being lab rats with little or less likelihood of personal success. I don't think medicine makes thorough use of the science and technology that are available, especially in assembling individual treatment options.
Also I think that there are SBM modes that allow better trial options for the individual with faster overall learning curves than current EBM. Log in to post comments By prn not verified on 12 Feb permalink So Log in to post comments By Melissa G not verified on 12 Feb permalink Will - I don't see MedTek arguing that we should take it easy on Burzynski to spare his patients, just that we should refrain from putting the patients down for wanting to believe in him.
Be wary of succumbing to your own sense of self-righteousness - I personally see no benefit in heaping scorn on scared and desperate people who are grasping at straws to save themselves or a loved one. Fear and stress can cloud anyone's better judgement, and Burzynski plays on that to rob people of large sums of money and the precious time they have left to live.
Absolutely we should keep hammering at Scammyslaus Burzynski and exposing the lies he tells to vulnerable people, but being nasty to his victims is just playing into the stereotyped view of skeptics they hold. I'd like to avoid all reference to patients if we could, however sometimes it's unavoidable.
I was really uncomfortable with Orac's assessment of little Amelia's MRI results, perhaps that was necessary but it did make me twitch a bit. We do see it time and time again where Burzynski reports a positive result only to later find that not to be the case. A Burzynski private patient was recently mocked on twitter by a Burzynski supporter for actually stating this aloud.
That's useful information, part of his M. How can you point this out without referring to patients' self reports? In the absence of any useful publication, you can't. But man, it's difficult. Log in to post comments By MedTek not verified on 12 Feb permalink When it comes to patients and parents opting for CAM, I think how one approaches it should vary depending on the situation.
If the person is simply desperate for something, anything, to help, it may be more appropriate to take a softer approach. If there is imminent risk of serious harm as a result of the CAM, perhaps something a bit more firm. If they persist in CAM even after copious explanations of why that modality does not or has not yet been shown to work, one can be firmer yet. But if they are actively promoting it, beyond all evidence that it is reasonable, then calling them out and risking hurt feelings is, perhaps, warranted.
If you think the system is too slow, perhaps you should go back and take a look at early AIDS treatments. Those suffering from AIDS clamored for a solution, complaining about how slow the process was. As it turned out, there were some very significant side effects of AZT that made the whole risk-benefit balance dodgy.
Many of those who had asked for it to be approved faster realized, and admitted, that maybe a bit more time should have been taken to improve its safety. Fast approval and safe approval is a very, very fine line. And there are some processes in science that simply cannot be rushed, because nature just doesn't play by our timelines.
Log in to post comments By Todd W. It still takes one woman about nine months to grow a baby. You cannot speed up the process by getting nine women to grow one baby. Log in to post comments By Chris not verified on 12 Feb permalink Although both sides stigmatize the other, I think the reason they have to demonize us comes down to the implications behind "you don't accept X because you don't want it to be true" when X is something obviously and plainly good. This is where wishful thinking has an advantage over scientific skepticism.
The things you wishfully wish for are always good things. Scientific skepticism is forced to follow the evidence where it leads. So when skeptics see the other side in terms of "they're stubborn because they don't want a negative thing to be true" we don't have to go after their character on that.
They're making mistakes because they're guilty of poor reasoning. They don't have to be wicked. We'd rather people die of cancer than be wrong. That's where they have to place us.
The anti-humanist approach is an anti-science one, and I think it can be summed up by the old quotation "For those who believe -- no evidence is necessary; for those who don't believe -- no evidence is possible. Instead of testing hypotheses and arriving together at tentative conclusions, the issue is thrust romantically into the view that we know things by being the right kind of person. You have to want things to be true before you can reason correctly.
Log in to post comments By Sastra not verified on 12 Feb permalink Sastra: I would add that there is a great emotional element involved, as well as building self-esteem and brushing off damaged feelings. The beliefs of those I survey- especially the contrarians- have psychological benefits that surround their own needs to feel better about themselves by deprecating those they feel are "elitists" or unfairly rewarded by society.
An old feminist psych study asked subjects why a ficitonal female character found herself at the ' top of her class in med school'- the answers often say little about her ability or hard work unlike those when the character is male but focus on cheating, she's not a "real woman" ad nauseum. People may believe what makes them feel better.

Log in to post comments By Tom Herling not verified on 12 Feb permalink Alties don't understand that you can take thousands of "real" scientists, unrelated and independent, from all parts of the world, lay out all the alt-med arguments for anti-vaxxine or Burzinsky, and these scientists will uniformly and independently shake their heads and say "what are they talking about?
Their training and understanding of the real science, of the unbelievable complexity of the human body and what it takes to obtain real evidence, brings them to consensus every time.
It has nothing to do with "sheeple" and everything to do with knowing what you're talking about because you actually DO the science. The problem for real medicine is that when a lay person becomes ill, it's very difficult to explain in a nutshell every complexity involved. Alt med, vaccine-causes-autism enthusiasts, etc.
One of the mantras of my woo loving sisters is "it's common sense! They have no concept of real evidence and real bias. Log in to post comments By lsm not verified on 12 Feb permalink Ism, you're correct. Unless a person studies they probably have unrealistic ideas about what is involved.
The quacks- and other alt med prevaricators- also work hard to convince their audience that they- the quacks et al - ARE experts and able to criticise the entire field of medicine they usually are faux-experts in psychology - they also "teach" their audiences 'science'.
A quack may go into great detail about his or her, but usually his own studies and research as well as the opposition the 'Orthodox ' world has displayed towards them. Alt med is interdependent with conspiracy mongering-they lead a symbiotic existence because woo needs to explain why its brilliance is not accepted by the mainstream by consensus- there has to be something opposing its assimilation into present day, state-of-the-art SBM.
Obviously the entrenched powers-that-be would be put out of business by these ground-shattering innovations: So these companies fight the scientific rebels tooth and claw in order to save their own economic skins. We see woo-meisters thus expand their own area of IN expertise far beyond medicine into economics and politics to explain HOW the conspiracy that cut them out of their rightful place and success has come about.
Usually the governments of the western world are implicated to explain how the dastardly deed was brought about and how the media spread the word. People like Jake and Gary and Mike spend a lot on time explaining the conspiracies that explain why woo is not accepted by everyone.
MY question to any alt med sympathiser is: No real expert would go that far a field. They do because they don't know what they're talking about. The other Altie mantra is "Have an open mind" when they, themselves, are totally closed to any sort of credible evidence.
