Do you worry about your child's future? About what will happen to your child if you won't be able to take care of him or her? Then you'll need an effective strategy to recover your child.
Autism is a whole-body, autoimmune disorder that is biologically based and treatable, especially if treatment is begun early. It is caused by the interaction of genetic and epigenetic vulnerabilities combined with toxins the child or parents were exposed to.
This affected the developing nervous and immune system. Fortunately autism can be reversed by addressing those causes and supporting the child's inherent healing mechanisms.
Concerned about long wait times or costs for autism assessments? I can help to make a diagnosis and you can start biomedical and homeopathic care as well as other interventions such as ABA and speech therapy to start recovering your child right away while waiting for the formal assessment to access funding.
The younger the child, the faster the recovery. Some of my patients have lost their diagnosis while waiting for their formal assessments. If your child is less than two years old, chances of a full recovery are excellent.
Melt-downs and aggression
Eye contact and socials skills
Repetetive and OCD tendencies
Constipation and/or diarrhea
Oversensitivity to environmental stimulati such as sounds and light and clothing
If you have any concerns about your child's development you are probably right. Research shows that parents are extremely accurate at assessing their child. Trust yourself and take action, every day counts. Don't wait, I cannot overemphasize this.
Every child I have seen who was less than three years old has dramatically improved. The most successful cases were less than 20 months old. Recovery definitely takes longer and is less predictable the older the child is. Please don't wait until the 'autism' is firmly entrenched.
I offer both biomedical and homeopathic treatments in my practice. My focus is primarily on homeopathy and CEASE Therapy to treat children with these conditions.
Diet and supplementation are also important and very helpful but will not usually address the deeper underlying causes of these disorders. In addition it can often be difficult to get the children to eat a better diet at the beginning.
Homeopathy is better able to address the underlying causes of the condition. Additionally, the remedies are very cost-effective, which will save you money on expensive supplements in the long run. They are also small and sweet easy to take.
Homeopathy and CEASE Therapy also address gut and heavy metal toxicity concerns.
Addressing the Cause
My specialty is finding and addressing the multiple causative factors for autism. These can include inherited predispostions as well as the use of various medications, especially antibiotics, Tylenol and vaccines the child received.
Medications and ultrasounds during pregnancy, medical interventions during labour and delivery, bisphenol A from plastics, fire-retardants, heavy metals and pesticides can also be contributing factors.
Medication, vaccines and traumas parents had before conception can play additional roles. Best results are obtained by being aware of all of these possible factors.
CEASE stands for 'Complete Elimination of Autism Spectrum Expression' and is an integrated therapy based on homeopathy, which was developed by Dr. Tinus Smits, a Dutch medical doctor and homeopath.
It is not only applicable to children with autism but also to many other neurodevelopmental and behavioural disorders as well as immunological disorders in both children and adults.
Dr. Smits felt that virtually all children with autism could be greatly improved if not competely healed, especially if treated early enough.
Autism and Vaccines
Dr. Smits opinion was that 70% of children with autism were negatively affected by vaccines and the other 30% more by other factors.
Babies now receive 28 doses of vaccines containing 14 different diseases in their first year of life alone and some 68 doses of 18 different diseases by age 18. Most of these vaccines are spiked with aluminum salts to force the immature immune system into creating an immune response, which can be a prescription for chronic inflammation and auto-immune conditions.
Children with autism have complex case histories, usually full of medical interventions.
A typical case history includes the use of prescription medication, repeated ultrasounds and antibiotics during pregnancy, various drugs during labour and delivery, then the usual vaccinations for the baby after birth and possibly some antibiotics as well as Tylenol.
Add to that genetic and epigenetic predispositions, low levels of vitamin D and other nutrients, air pollution, a few pesticides in the food and some flame retardants in the mattress and we have a perfect storm.
Medications, vaccines, recreational drugs and emotional traumas parents had before even conceiving their child can add additional layers.
Modern Medicine and Autism
The chemical industry and especially modern medicine, in spite of good intentions, have inadvertently created the widespread development of chronic disease in children and adults.
There is no single causative factor for autism, it is always multifactorial. The reason we don't have a cure is because this is not properly understood.
It is my goal to address as many of these factors as possible in order to help your child as quickly and effectively as possible.
A Quick Fix - Not!
However, because of the inherent complexity of this condition there is no quick fix. Treatment with CEASE Therapy and naturopathy takes time and commitment.
Your child's brain and immune system need time to recover, but they can. Plan on treatment for 2-4 years, depending on the age of the child.
There are many case studies published on my website, which will give you an idea of the treatment process. I also highly recommend Dr. Smit's book, Autism - Beyond Despair. It will help you to understand the system and inspire you.
What to Expect
Assessment involves a very detailed case taking. I usually meet with parent and child for the first visit of one hour and then with the parents only for another hour. I review baby photos, medication and vaccine records, diet intakes, reports from other professionals and samples of art and handwriting as well as a detailed family history.
I may or may not recommend further testing. Sometimes allergy testing or a hair mineral analysis can be very useful.
A treatment plan is usually designed after the second visit. I then see the child about once a month for several months for 30 minute visits. After that time about every 3-4 months until the child is stable.
Recommended Autism Book
Dr. Tinus Smits was a Dutch medical doctor and homeopath who discovered that children with ASD have a malfunctioning rather than damaged brain due to the cumulative effects of various toxins, including excessive vaccinations, antibiotics, infections, medications and environmental toxins such as plastic softeners.
Certain illnesses, vaccinations and traumas in the parents or even grandparents may also cause subtle genetic and epigenetic changes which can be passed on and increase the susceptibility of some children to the effects of environmental toxins and other stresses. Dr. Smits developed a treatment program which includes the use of homeopathic preparations of the different vaccines and medications to help restore the child's brain and immune system to normal function.
Please see his website at www.tinussmits.com for more information or oder his book "Autism, Beyond Despair", available at www.minimum.com or on Amazon and now also as a downloadable e-book on his website. The book is not only about autism but also about all the other frequent neurological, behavioural and physical health problem seen so commonly in children these days.
