Autism and Homoeopathic care

Autism is the most frequently confronted topic for Homoeopathic Doctors of our age, yet very little information is available to Parents and care takers of those children.
It is estimated that there are 20 lakh (2 million) individuals in India suffering from Autism/ ASD using the generalized prevalence figures of 1/250 to 1/500. But apart from special Schools little guidance is there for general Public that too for lower income sectors. Caring such children is a huge burden not only emotionally but also financially. Moreover it’s a continuous process and demands lots of time, perseverance and care without guarantee of any light in the end of the tunnel.
Vaccination can be one of the major contributors for Autistic symptoms (about 70% of cases). Homoeopaths will advise to stop further vaccination to prevent damages; if the child is diagnosed or showing features of ASD.
After treating with Homeopathy one can expect:
Improvement in
 General Health and quality of Life.
 Improvement gaining and Sustenance of ongoing treatments.
 Prevention of regressive mode of Health or
 Breaking Statuesque that is helping in achieving next levels early than those inconsistent long term progress.

Homoeopathic therapy started with individually evaluated case registering and personalized treatment established In Homoeopathic context; Diagnosis plays a complimentary role and each case is individually case recorded and treated accordingly.
Note that information provided in this article or not just possibilities but compiled on the facts of results obtained from this clinic as well as other Homoeopathic published research papers.
Though each case is different chances of getting good results is very high.
o ATEC scores recorded to begin with and chronicled regular at intervals.
The factors since inception that is before the birth of that child till date are analyzed in accordance with Physical, mental and circumstances around which problem started and guided, individually tailored treatment for problem areas considered.

I. Like if the child has deficient speech that can be improved alongside speech therapist.
II. If child is slow in understanding or applying mind that can be treated along with other modules.
III. If the child is very restless and inattentive that can be treated.
IV. Child is violent and aggressive that also can be treated.
V. If child’s sleep is not compatible with natural biological clock say it sleeps at 1-3 AM till late noon that also can be regularized.
VI. If the child refuses to eat or has gastric related problems or allergies that also can be treated.

o Yet a structure emerges over a period of time which could help in framing Protocol for treating cases effectively. A set of medicines can be pinned down which helps to get consistent results in lesser time.
o It helps in determining prognosis or progress of other such cases.
Though most of the symptoms can be rectified by consistent Homeopathic treatment and at times cure can be expected individually; people tend to seek help as a last resort. If Homoeopathy is included early especially in the age of 3 years or so along with other therapies will be very helpful and at times curable.
Mostly they give up half way in pursuit of better attractive options and many a times do not care to come back to Homoeopathy even when other treatments are not helping.
Homoeopath can specifically try to treat:
• Vaccination related damages. Medicines to treat specific problems if the trouble has begun after any event.
• High fever related convulsions which may have led to ASD symptoms with regression in normal milestones. This is seen in Brain fevers or constant high fevers; not all high fevers with convulsions can lead to symptoms of Autism.
• Heavy metal poisoning back log. If any relevant history read my blog on Lead poisoning and reset your system with Homoeopathy.
• Emotional issues of Mothers during Pregnancy of the affected child. This is major contributor for the symptoms and it is directly proportionate to mother’s emotional burden. Homoeopathy alone can remove past emotional injuries as far as my knowledge goes.
• Hormonal treatments undergone if any for conceiving by the Mother of the affected Child. This can two faced usually ladies of advanced age most propably seek assisted pregnany treatments, moreover they already would have abused hormonal therapies in the past which can add to the problems.
• Genetic orientations and defects based on Family History. Not very predominant yet in few cases it could be traced.
• Head injury effects in case that is the starting point of the regress. Again very important reason for regress in child’s milestones but most of the times exact link may not be remembered.

They forget that this problem is so huge unlike, cold or fever.
It needs consistency and perseverance;
Loads of patience on parents’ part in providing the treatment which needs time and constant at least monthly once follow up.
As well as handling the child with care and patience.

By evaluating the effectiveness of Homoeopathy in the Neuro-Psychological axis of ASD not only Children improve symptomatically but also will gain Immunity and holistic health.

In India the taboo of “Autistic” label scares parents so much so that they keep it secret, since most surrounding people are insensitive and ask hurting questions, they fail to recognize that the trouble has arrived; no other way out.
Awareness about this enormous problem, very early detection and changing our own views- Perspectives will help to overcome this problem to a great extent.

So it has to be dealt with calm mind and put in all possible resources with patience. Over zeal or Urgency is damaging just as much as laziness and complacence.
Putting it into another perspective the other way round is parents want their child to be as all other children are, and refuse to accept the differences. They are (over) sensitive about what others think and making their own lives very tough. If kin of such children are supporting and helping those who take care of them, they will be more relaxed and face those adversities with a conviction. So, I can say collective change in the way people handle these issues is the need of hour.

When it comes to treatments now sought for a condition unlike in olden days People are more open minded and seek all available help to treat it. This is very true in case of ASD considering not much interventions or improvement strategies are available naturally Onus falls on Alternative therapies.

But when we examine such procedures even not so well researched or documented ways also find a spot in those therapy courses.

Nonetheless when it comes to Homoeopathic Intervention unless the Parents follow Homoeopathy for a long period of time most of them treat it symptomatically, which is not very much encouraging as it may not provide long term benefits for Health.

Symptom based Homoeopathy drugs are obtained:
      Over the counter drugs.
      Patented products
      Online search engines delivered drugs
      Another person passing on his prescription which has same diagnostic name.
      Friends with homoeopathy know how or
      Prescribed by a Homoeopath residing in another place; who is unable to take complete case.

Through such prescriptions one can reduce symptoms immediately for which treatment is taken. For example sleepless is treated sleep will improve, if restlessness is addressed that will be reduced; likewise. Symptoms may come back after few months; then if the same medicine is repeated it may not be as effective as for the first time.

Classical Homoeopathy is the one which can bring about total cure on all levels that is Physical, Mental and spiritual;

Immunity is increased and it helps to fight diseases from within. For example if treated for frequent Cold and cough apart from improvement in catching cold person will not have frequent sinus Headaches also allergy to certain foods may be rectified along with it.

Just like in case of symptomatic treatment immediate relief is noticed but it takes time to achieve all desired results.

Moreover cold cough fever are short term acute troubles will go away even if not treated, whereas ASD, Thyroid, PCOD, Asthma, Joint pains are long term chronic diseases and will not improve over time but in turn get worse.

People do not realize this and those who go to same Allopathic doctor to treat Typhoid fever for a month or even bear with relapses cannot wait for a Homoeopathic course to complete. They expect miracles in short time.

Advantages of classical method are treatments are available for following unusual causes:
ü  Vaccination related damages.
ü  High fever related convulsions which may have led to ASD symptoms with regression in normal milestones.
ü  Heavy metal poisoning back log can be cleared like lead, Aluminium or due to
ü  Medicinal overdoses of allopathic antibiotics Emotional issues of Mothers during Pregnancy of the affected child.
ü  Hormonal treatments undergone if any for conceiving by the Mother of te affected Child.
ü  Genetic orientations and defects are rectified.
ü  Head injury effects are treated and if possible cured, in case that is the starting point of the regress.

These are achieved by gradual flush outs of the system but reaction of the person determines outcome.

 

Also Bio-medical treatments of dietary changes and restrictions like stoppage of proprietary foods; foods with additives as well as restricting sugary, dairy or gluten foods are positive input for the Homoeopathic treatment but Chelation ; other chemical or medication (like Antibiotics) oriented treatments will hinder or even nullify Homoeopathic therapy. So, Homoeopath needs to know all therapies under gone and Parents are expected to stop few medications as per Homoeopaths advice.

However medications for Seizures (epilepsy) or other Psychiatric drugs must be reduced or stopped by concerned Psychiatrist alone and none other.

 

Homoeopathic treatment in Classical way is by far beneficial than many non-invasive therapies however Symptomatic treatment with Homoeopathy is comparatively safe to random treatments and beneficial for short terms.

According to one’s interest, efforts and intention to achieve progress in their child’s health results will be dependent upon.

Though practically Parents especially Mother’s fight a fierce battle against day today troubles, concerns about other family members; prioritizing this child over whole world it is a uphill task to sustain.

   So it has to be dealt with calm mind and put in all possible resources  like involving all good intentioned friends and relatives in taking care of the child”s welfare and with patience. Over zeal or Urgency is damaging just as much as laziness and complacence.

Provided Homoeopathy is by far safest, most helpful as well as result oriented and fulfilling journey (as narrated by Parents of children who are under Homoeopathic care) so, give a try after learning about it a bit.

 
To take care of such children few tips have been provided in the websitewww.rajhomoeoclinic.com articles

Homoeopathy and Allopathic systems of medicines; the incomparable paradox.

Key words: Principles- Poles apart, different Planes, Materialistic versus Dynamic, incongruent comparison.

 

“We must admit that we have never fought the homeopath on matters of principle. We  Fought them because they came into our community and got the business.”

Dr. J.N. McCormack, AMA, 1903(1)

“It has never occurred to us that the very mode of reasoning which we have taken for granted may itself be a barrier toward a real understanding of the Phenomena of life.”

These are the words of renowned Edward .C.Whitmont an Allopathically trained Psychotherapist who was contemporary and student of Carl.G.Jung. “The Concept of Causality namely linear association of cause and effect….. has always been an unquestioned logical category in scientific work(2).

Causality is the relationship between causes and effects. It is considered to be fundamental to all natural science, especially physics. Confusion of causality and determinism (exactness) is particularly acute in quantum mechanics, this theory being Acausal in the sense that it is unable in many cases to identify the causes of actually observed effects or to predict the effects of identical causes.(3) So, cause is not in line with effect, it varies.

Thus, the linearity of his mechanical expectations prohibited Planck from having a mechanical explanation. This is why he had to resort to Boltzmann’s probabilistic arguments. Planck when faced with roadblock in his experimentations upon black bodies, instead of abandoning the theory that it no more comes under classical Physics; he embraced an entirely different thought to accommodate non-linear motions of Electrons. .”(4) It was neither by experiment nor by standards of Physics but only on Observations of natural occurrences which got endorsed by Einstein as well.

In a 1909 article entitled “The Scientific Reasonableness of Homeopathy” by Royal S. Copeland, A.M., M.D.  he states:

“. . a chemical, technically an electrolyte, when dissolved, is dissociated into parts or particles smaller than the atoms and known as ions. The more dilute the solution the greater is the dissociation and consequently the atoms are less in number and the ions increased. In a solution infinitely dilute, the dissociation is absolute and the chemical is present only in a state of ionization.”(5)

If you don’t believe that properties of the solute remain in solvents diluted beyond the presumed limit, make the assays for ionic concentration, i.e. do the tests to identify homeopathic remedies ionic concentration tests as against plain water!

But Homoeopaths are not accepted when they prove it anything but on allopathic standards. As The Washington Post reported that the two most contentious topics in the Western world are Jesus Christ and Homeopathy; (6) Why all Medical Sceptics are still stuck in reductionist view of Galen, who saw Human body as entities related to each other. What stops them from realizing the truth? We are not asking for ‘conversions’ but only acceptance of our work or at least leave us to work in peace.

The truth is even though Allopaths have advanced enormously in dissecting human body into thinnest slices virtually; they still cannot even cure completely a simple Allergic Rhinitis. All true Practioners know that Allergies grow into Bronchial Asthma in their care so few of good intentioned Doctors suggest to try Alternative therapies off the record to their Patients.

Scientific Laws: Scientists postulate that the basic laws of the universe are unchangeable, and through observation and experimentation, humans determine the validity of their beliefs to better understand the nature of reality. (7)

The four steps of the scientific method are,

  1. Observation of a phenomenon:

In Homoeopathy, that is ‘Likes cure likes’ or Nature’s Law of Cure,’ Similia Similibus Curantur’.

  1. Formulation of a hypothesis:

Let the like substances for each disease picture found in nature be explored and applied to cure those maladies.

  1. Prediction of future outcomes or other phenomena:

This was accomplished by Dr. Hahnemann by carefully evaluating all olden medical Data and compiling which circumstances lead to cure. For example if a stronger dissimilar force meets natural disease it suspends natural disease until its strength wanes off, again natural disease progresses as before. This is the way Allopathic prescriptions work. Anti-pyretic for fever, Analgesics for Pains, so on and so forth.

Smallpox vaccine, the first successful vaccine to be developed, was introduced by Edward Jenner in 1798. He followed up his observation that milkmaids who had previously caught cowpox did not later catch smallpox by showing that inoculated cowpox protected against inoculated smallpox. This could be the best example of Nature’s Law of Cure. (Wiki) Edward Jenner was contemporary of Dr.Hahnemann and he endorsed Jenner’s cow pox vaccine. (Organon 6th edition.page.no.130/131 f.note 47)

Unfortunately, Contrary to this Polio Vaccine did not work like wise, though its prepared from diluted Polio Virus; not similar but same substance, it has lots of side effects and a link has been found between the vaccine and increase in the number of cases of ‘Acute Flaccid Paralysis’ (AFP)as the report dated Dec 4th 2015, suggests in National daily ‘The Hindu.’ (8) It has been clearly demonstrated in the above mentioned study that Polio is swapped by AFP.

  1. Experimentation to test the validity of the predictions:

The Famous experiment where Hahnemann himself took the decoction of cinchona bark and got all the characteristics of Malarial fever. It’s an open challenge anyone can redo this experiment and check the results.  An example of this Natural Law is China’s alkaloid quinine; which cures Malaria even today.

Interestingly I read an article by a sceptic claiming Hippocrates did not suggest ‘Law of Similars ’. Yet that critique clearly showed how Hippocrates operated in the lines of ‘Similia’…Some people think that ‘homoios’ and ‘autos’ merely means ‘fitting’, ‘of the same kind’.so the first quote above merely says that cause and remedy belong to the same class. If the cause is ‘too hot or too cold’, the remedy must be of the same kind; wounds however need surgical treatment and the result of wrong food should be solved by diet.”(Skepsis)  (9)Hippocrates was not a Homeopath _ Stichting Skepsis.html)

Indeed this is what Homoeopathy is all about, it is of ‘same kind’ or similar, not ‘same thing’ like a vaccine. This skeptic still provides good examples of Hippocrates applying Homoeopathic principles based on his own experiences, it’s just a tread of knowledge; but could not develop it into a Medical thought, which later Dr.Hahnemann did. It also led to the discovery of Homoeopathic ‘Operacy’ by him meaning that natural Law tamed to work for Humanity unlike accidental happy go lucky cures.

Dr Hahnemann has set clear cut Premise for Homoeopathic principles application. It is for naturally occurring diseases or ‘Dynamic’ in nature, in new age terminology “Genetic”, as well as Immunological Issues. Other problems have to be treated accordingly like Diet and regime, Hygiene or Physiotherapy.

“Only in the most Urgent cases, where danger of life and imminent death allow no time for the action of a Homoeopathic remedy-….scarcely minutes-…..in sudden accident occurring to previously healthy individuals, for example Asphyxia,…it is admissible and judicious at all events…to stimulate irritability and sensibility….for there is no natural diseases to be removed…..to this category belongs antidotes to poisonings, alkalis to mineral acids….pg.152,. Organon of Medicine., by Dr.Hahnemann.

Dr.Hahnemann’s good old friend Dr.Hufeland one of the best critique as well as earliest Sceptic whose contribution to Homoeopathy is enormous; mockingly said that it only removes symptoms and not disease. This alone prompted Hahnemann to search for “cure model”, for the genetically oriented disorders or so called Soil/Miasma the base Nature of the Individual. This led to the disease classification as

 Acute diseases: caused by external elements infectious in nature like Fevers and other life threatening diseases, usually self-limiting ones. Infections can be overcome by increased Immunity due to Homoeopathy, but each case is decided on its merits.

Chronic diseases which have a long course; no imminent threat to life except in acute flare ups, but will neither subside nor rectified on their own and are carried over to their off springs. Homoeopathy is most suitable for diseases of this nature where Allopathy usually removes symptoms but diseases are progressive.

Though our newest  Sceptic , Dr.Venkaraman Ramakrishnan a man of repute, unfortunately is ill informed and has based his allegations on hearsay which itself is against scientific spirit. (10)Whether our Nobel Laureate is proving what Edward De bono suggests,”You can be a thinker without being an intellectual. Indeed many intellectuals are not particularly good thinkers.” He did not compare within  two Medical  thoughts like Homoeopathy and Herbal therapies , he took a safe bet like Astrology and Homoeopathy both which  are not on a fight back mode.

Do not jump to the conclusion that these new skeptics who call themselves “TAM-Truth about Alternative Medicines” are well armoured with knowledge, before rubbishing Homoeopathy unlike their older counterparts. They haven’t done any Homework they just sit on the panels use cheap tactics like ridiculing, rejecting evidence provided without examining and hate speech. They are worried of immense popularity about which they themselves unswervingly supply data and think millions of people who take Homoeopathy are fools and are beyond salvaged.

They just argue that, “….. it’s unfortunate; that millions are using it; say even Medical as well as University Students are catching up with it.”(11)  A good Thinker will be aghast to note, so much of venom spilled against a Medical Therapeutic system which has survived only due to patronage of Common Man for centuries; why is it so?  Is it a terrorist outfit? There is lot more to it than just cynicism.

Even when Dr. Bellare of IIT.,Mumbai, said Homoeopathic dilutions have Nano particles it was ridiculed citing  it may be due to contamination since dilutions were procured from Local Shop as against manufactured under stringent conditions. (12)

Thanks for the Sceptics; attacks on Homoeopathy have trigged a chain reaction in Homoeopathic fraternity which has produced enormous Data about Scientifics of Homoeopathy by Non Homoeopathic Scientists which is good for us as well as our Patrons.

“It is not… That some people do not know what to do with truth when it is offered to them,

But the tragic fate is to reach, after patient search, a condition of mind-blindness, in which

The truth is not recognized, though it stares you in the face.” Sir William Osler, physician,

1849-1919

 

The natural healing force within each of us is the greatest force in getting well.” ― Hippocrates.

So, our exponentially growing Client base as well as Homoeopaths should carry on our commendable work for the betterment of All of us.

“I’m a science journalist. I don’t celebrate science; I criticize it, because science needs critics more than cheerleaders. I point out gaps between scientific hype and reality. That keeps me busy, because, as you know, most peer-reviewed scientific claims are wrong”, says John Horgan(13) in Scientific American journal. So he himself claims he treats the skeptics skeptically. But as he suggests let the world be harsher on mammograms and Wars but don’t be soft on Homoeopathy we need our critiques to push us to move forward.And dialogues and healthy debates are always welcome.

One of my Patient reacted “Allopaths says don’t go to Homoeopathy and you say don’t go to Allopathy….”. I said “We never ever ask an emergency case to stop allopathic or come to us alone as we are here to help our Patients to get maximum health benefits. We  are not in a cat fight with any system because our Plane of action is totally unparalleled.

Autism and Homoeopathic care

Autism is the most frequently confronted topic for Homoeopathic Doctors of our age, yet very little information is available to Parents and care takers of those children.

Patients whom I dislike

Type of Patients I dislike?
Well, it’s a tricky question! Or is it?
Patients or Clients as they are termed in Western countries come to Doctors for varied reasons. Clients can be
 Open type who give required information on inquiry or
 closed types who never want to reveal any facts or
 talkative, never ending chit chatters or
 methodical tell me each detail about treatments taken until now with all minutest details of dosage , or
 denying type who want to show their own knowledge or
 Too fussy asking too many questions without waiting for answers; even after clearing all of their doubts still doubtful.
 Some are hypochondriac or imagine they could have each of the disease they hear about
 but most recent addition is of cyperchondriacs-who search details on internet and treatment provided for it and experiment on their own. These patients could be fussy as well as endanger their own prospects of getting cured by too much of medication, I must warn here.
In my practice I see those who just want clarification but no medicines.
Those who need only medicines and magical cure but no advice!
Those need only a friendly adviser who is non-judgemental third party.
Those really need to improve their health as a whole as well as cement a lasting bonding with their Doctor.
I usually figure out in one or two sittings what’s their need and conduct myself accordingly. Yet few Patients do not realize that being friendly does not allow them to take me for granted or talk incessantly at busy hours. Though their purpose is just to confirm what they have already decided and not to change their minds, they still carry on.
Few are too concerned about me and will not say they are not feeling any better. They think it may offend me; but it won’t. My job is to fix the problem and being honest and telling that medicine did not work will lead to a more suitable medicine, that’s all. All Homoeopaths will appreciate it I guess. It’s better than start searching for a new Doctor both for the patient and for the Doctor is it not?
Few have something else on their minds. Their important complaint which usually will be cosmetic one which is cured mostly in the end of the whole treatment course, may not be that important issue for their Health. For example few worry incessantly about a dark spot on face but not so worried about Thyroid issue. If Doctor says it will fade away after 1-2 months, not convinced but ignore to take Thyroid medicines as prescribed.
They should understand as well as trust the Doctor and stop interfering in the on-going treatment with other Doctor’s prescriptions or over the counter drugs. Patient should be ‘Patient’ is it not? Mostly they hide facts which are still more dangerous.
Few patient’s forget that Doctor had asked for follow-up to solve the Problem completely which cannot be done when acute symptoms were present like wheezing with fever, loose motions so on and so forth. They remember again when real problem arises and sometimes it may become very tough to treat at that point of time. So, following Doctors advice is very important, and should not think of money or time.
Honestly; tell me, is curing abdomen pain due to kidney stones with three months medicines worth it or going for surgery saying no time to see the Doctor, will be better? Is it not like that adage ”using axe to cut which needed a finger nail” You may have to shell thousands of rupees plus pain and other troubles for a life time inclusive, is it not?
Last but not the least Doctors have their own importance in their life’s so judging Doctors on their Ideals is as bad as getting judged by them in turn. It’s a relationship of trust, mutual respect and includes service mindedness. Thinking that since I pay him, Doctor should attend me at my own timings or convenience does not suit is it not? It’s true that few Doctors nowadays do not seem to sense the feelings or urgency of their Patients; yet they are also humans.
Now the let me come to the Heading of this article. Honestly, why I should dislike any of them? In reality I like each one my of Patients. I like all of them because they have trusted me to mend their problems and given me an opportunity to serve them. Closest friend or a kin may be having very good personal relationship with me, but may not trust me in health issues is it not? So, all of them are adorable.
Especially those Cute little tots are my favorite. They just pull me out of sadness or regular weariness. Few of my Patients will tell me about new trends or just share random information. During psychotherapy my emotional burdens will be reduced and will discover so many shades of life; will be filled with gratitude about Life.
Moreover I Judge none of them. They share their personal things with me just for getting help to solve their problems, Doctors are only allowed to help not to judge or comment on somebody’s personal choices, is it not? This is the most respected profession even today not only because it requires high levels of perseverance and skills but also in that process we touch so many life’s and its very tough to carry on without our benefactors who have given us huge responsibility. Let me strive to fulfill it. Have a happy week ahead.

ASD Causes and Treatments in a nut shell

Autism occurred in about 5 children per 10,000 live births. However, since the early 1990’s, the rate of autism has increased enormously throughout the world, so that figures as high as 60 per 10,000 are being reported. According recent figure estimates from CDC’s Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) Network about 1 in 68 children has been identified with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), affects all racial, ethnic, and socio-economic groups.
The reasons for the increase are being debated, but the most likely cause appears to be
 over vaccinations of infants,
 Lyme Disease,
 Leaky Gut Syndrome,
 Chronic Inflammation Of Brain cells Neurons ,
 Genetic Traits,
 Poor Immunity
 Heavy metal Toxins.
 Fungal infections,
 Environmental Pollution can also to be blamed.
 Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are the leading cause of disability in children

Even though the majority of these are defined as “mild” TBI (mTBI), there is evidence that between 15-50% of children with mTBI will have poor functional outcomes.
Especially MMR vaccines blamed for this but experts claim it’s not vaccine but Thimerosal in the vaccine causing the damage. Though it is evident that Children with weak constitution or make-up cannot take up vaccination adverse reactions and one size fits all policy is not beneficial so many factors are playing their part in continuation of Governmental Vaccination drives as before.(Read related articles.)

Some experts feel that screening may alleviate parents’ uncertainties by obtaining an earlier diagnosis when parents already know that their child is “just not right.”
But others, such as University of Maryland’s Shubin, are concerned that it may instil unnecessary fear due to incorrect diagnoses. Screening could also offer relief for other families who feel that something is not quite right with their child, only to discover that they do not have any form of ASD.
“Screening that shows their kids do not have autism should be a relief,” says Dr. Mark Groshek, a pediatrician at Kaiser Permanente in Littleton, Colorado

Role of Mother’s Mental Health.
In a study they compared mothers of 20 autistic, 20 Down syndrome, and 20 developmentally normal children matched on several pertinent demographic variables. Results revealed that mothers of autistic children reported.
 less parenting competence,
 less marital satisfaction,
 more family cohesion, and
 Less family adaptability than mothers in the other two groups.
 Mothers of both autistic and Down syndrome children reported more disrupted planning,
 caretaker burden, family burden, and
 Frequent use of self-blame as a coping strategy than did mothers of developmentally normal children.
The practical implications of these findings are discussed, particularly those pertaining to low parenting competence and the use of self-blame as a coping strategy.
So, it’s evident that Mother’s state of mind and Health has direct effect on Children’s health even after birth at times.

Also, because many ASDs are still not completely understood, there exists no “cure” per se, only treatment.
“Better treatment options need to be studied,” says Dr. Steven Pavlakis, professor of neurology and pediatrics at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. But, Johnson says, this does not mean that early treatment cannot have significant benefits.
“There are medicines that may improve — although not cure — their behaviour,” she adds. .
We hear reports by parents and professionals regarding recovery in some individuals on the spectrum based on many of the interventions mentioned earlier.
There are many ways to interpret the word “recovery,” and we view recovery in the same way as the medical community—that is, as a managed state, similar to recovery from addiction or cancer. Individuals receiving appropriate treatment and support will retain their unique and wonderful personality, but they will be better able to manage life and feel physically well.
Although there may still be some residual “autistic” traits, some adults on the spectrum state that it is not necessary to provide them with help or assistance—that they do not need to be “treated.” They embrace the diagnosis and are pleased with their overall sense of being. These individuals very much want to be accepted for who they are.
These treatments may be neurologically based (e.g., to stop seizure activity), medically based (e.g., to reduce gastro-esophageal reflux or severe constipation), nutritionally based (e.g., to normalize a nutritional deficiency), or sensory based (e.g., to reduce hyper-sensitivities). Medical approaches augment educational and behavioural approaches that are often needed and can also be helpful.

Treatment Procedures Classical Homoeopathy approach versus symptom oriented approach

   When it comes to treatments now sought for a condition unlike in olden days People are more open minded and seek all available help to treat it. This is very true in case of ASD considering not much interventions or improvement strategies are available naturally Onus falls on Alternative therapies.

But when we examine such procedures even not so well researched or documented ways also find a spot in those therapy courses.

     Nonetheless when it comes to Homoeopathic Intervention unless the Parents follow Homoeopathy for a long period of time most of them treat it symptomatically, which is not very much encouraging as it may not provide long term benefits for Health.

Symptom based Homoeopathy drugs are obtained:

      Over the counter drugs.

      Patented products

      Online search engines delivered drugs

      Another person passing on his prescription which has same diagnostic name.

      Friends with homoeopathy know how or

      Prescribed by a Homoeopath residing in another place; who is unable to take complete case.

UNWIND THE CURL

Through such prescriptions one can reduce symptoms immediately for which treatment is taken. For example sleepless is treated sleep will improve, if restlessness is addressed that will be reduced; likewise. Symptoms may come back after few months; then if the same medicine is repeated it may not be as effective as for the first time.

 

Classical Homoeopathy is the one which can bring about total cure on all levels that is Physical, Mental and spiritual;

Immunity is increased and it helps to fight diseases from within. For example if treated for frequent Cold and cough apart from improvement in catching cold person will not have frequent sinus Headaches also allergy to certain foods may be rectified along with it.

 

Just like in case of symptomatic treatment immediate relief is noticed but it takes time to achieve all desired results.

Moreover cold cough fever are short term acute troubles will go away even if not treated, whereas ASD, Thyroid, PCOD, Asthma, Joint pains are long term chronic diseases and will not improve over time but in turn get worse.

People do not realize this and those who go to same Allopathic doctor to treat Typhoid fever for a month or even bear with relapses cannot wait for a Homoeopathic course to complete. They expect miracles in short time.

 

Advantages of classical method are treatments are available for following unusual causes:

ü  Vaccination related damages.

ü  High fever related convulsions which may have led to ASD symptoms with regression in normal milestones.

ü  Heavy metal poisoning back log can be cleared like lead, Aluminium or due to

ü  Medicinal overdoses of allopathic antibiotics Emotional issues of Mothers during Pregnancy of the affected child.

ü  Hormonal treatments undergone if any for conceiving by the Mother of te affected Child.

ü  Genetic orientations and defects are rectified.

ü  Head injury effects are treated and if possible cured, in case that is the starting point of the regress.

 

These are achieved by gradual flush outs of the system but reaction of the person determines outcome.

 

           Also Bio-medical treatments of dietary changes and restrictions like stoppage of proprietary foods; foods with additives as well as restricting sugary, dairy or gluten foods are positive input for the Homoeopathic treatment but Chelation ; other chemical or medication (like Antibiotics) oriented treatments will hinder or even nullify Homoeopathic therapy. So, Homoeopath needs to know all therapies under gone and Parents are expected to stop few medications as per Homoeopaths advice.

 

However medications for Seizures (epilepsy) or other Psychiatric drugs must be reduced or stopped by concerned Psychiatrist alone and none other.

 

Homoeopathic treatment in Classical way is by far beneficial than many non-invasive therapies however Symptomatic treatment with Homoeopathy is comparatively safe to random treatments and beneficial for short terms.

   According to one’s interest, efforts and intention to achieve progress in their child’s health results will be dependent upon.

Though practically Parents especially Mother’s fight a fierce battle against day today troubles, concerns about other family members; prioritizing this child over whole world it is a uphill task to sustain.

   So it has to be dealt with calm mind and put in all possible resources  like involving all good intentioned friends and relatives in taking care of the child”s welfare and with patience. Over zeal or Urgency is damaging just as much as laziness and complacence.
      

Provided Homoeopathy is by far safest, most helpful as well as result oriented and fulfilling journey (as narrated by Parents of children who are under Homoeopathic care) so, give a try after learning about it a bit.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lead Poisoning: Reset your system with Homoeopathy

8077_436457343072247_1888610220_n

     Recent developments in regard to the ban of noodles brand, did not ring a bell for few “Are you one among them?” They are those families who cook from scratch and eat traditionally made foods.
When one of the panelists in a talk show said we Indians taught the whole world how to eat I was amused; yes we give so much Importance to food. We say ‘Anna’ which nourishes our Body, mind and soul. Even place of growth of food products, the cook, place of eating as well as provider of food, all is accounted for. It’s not just filling one’s stomach, “Bhojana’ is a well Balanced diet with dhal for proteins, carbohydrates in form of sweets, salads, soups all included on daily basis.
Of late our MacAulay mindedness has made people to follow all exotic, alien ways of eating fashionable discarding foods suitable for our climate, digestive systems and our innate natures. This has now raised concerns about Poisons in one’s food because anything out of place is dirt.
There are no short cuts for amazing Health. If you are concerned about toxins through vegetables better try growing them at home. If you are sure about the source; get your produce from Organic super markets.
But above all stop using ready to use pre- cooked or canned foods for easiest management of one’s Health. You can eat as much (a little less than) your satiety, give it to your children without much worrying and weight loss may not be guaranteed but health is.
But Lead is not the only Heavy metal we should be concerned about. It is also more than needed Iron, Magnesium based syrups for Indigestion but most important ingredient causing serious damage to digestive; as well as nervous system is Aluminum. Also in some parts Arsenic compounds are a concern.
A lady of 32 years who works in a factory and deals with soldering (Involves lead) came to me complaining of irregular periods. After detailed history lead poisoning turned out to be the real cause, she had a black patch on the left side of her nose which was spreading and blue lines on her gums. Along with constitutional therapy Lead was phased out with Plumbum Met a medicine prepared out of Lead. Since 2 years she is cleared of her problems, including her hormonal issues.
Now even taking Vitamin pills for very long period of time just thinking they benefit you is also poisoning the system ,shells or fillers present in the tablets get accumulated in one’s Joints causing damage and Inflammation. Except for those who are recovering from long term illness chemical Vitamin supplements are unnecessary. Supplements even for pregnant women should be natural.
One very important reason of poisoning is actual attempts to end one’s life: suicide attempts. People who consume corroding substances like phenyls and Acids may die but milder preparations like house hold pesticides may not take their life but leave their systems scared for rest of their lives. Although Homoeopathy has no role to play during Acute poisonings when the system is ailing due to residual symptoms Homoeopathy can help to get rid of those effects.
A lady aged 34years came to me or some constant knee joint pain. I tried usual course of medicines with little benefit. On further inquiry discovered two attempts on her life with House hold pesticides (rat kills). In her being, each system was penetrated and she had black as well as white patches on skin, all cleared over a period of 6 months of time along with rectifying digestive system which was corroded due the poison. Even her hairs nails became smooth from brittle; now since 4 years she is steered clear of most of her residual troubles. Not to mention her hormonal Imbalance also taken care of with Constitutional treatment and her confidence in self-restored, alongside suicidal tendency got removed.
In toddlers severe constipation is reported more often than one can notice. They try hard at removing the dry crumbling stools with great agony. Aluminum in so many forms penetrates in our systems through cans, foils, wraps; through baby foods which are contained in aluminum tins. Cases have been treated with phasing out the imperceptible poisons from system with Homoeopathic drugs.Usually Alumina a potentized form of Aluminum compound works wonders.
Poisons could be due to Bee stings or wasps bite or even other poisonous insects and Animals. This is also managed with Homoeopathy, but big topic in itself. So, explore the huge potential of Homoeopathy to help yourself no matter how enormous the task seems to be. Unless you try solution will not surface is it not.
Wish you a Happy noodles free weekend, take care.

The Dosage and Repetition of Homoeopathic drugs

Dose and repetition of medicines is  much debated subject in Homoeopathic parlance and each Doctor provides his own version. Although Homoeopathy is exacted Science yes you read it correct exact science based on True Laws of Nature like Similar things cure similar symptoms ;Minimum dose maximum effect; as well as Individualization, Art of prescribing remedies differs mainly because of Individualization although experienced doctor’s prescriptions may read the same drugs.

But dosage is entirely different ball game and one size does not fit all like allopathic prescriptions. I have few very very sensitive (Idiosyncratic) patients for whom I prescribe only one drop of the watery solution of that SL or even on their skin!

But in these more than fifteen years of my practice single pill dry on tongue or with half a glass of water early in the morning on empty stomach suits most of them. If severity is more I suggest repetition of the same solution done with half glass of water with 1-2 pills in it stirring well and taking one spoon from that solution every one hour once in cases of pain or high fevers. It helps always and usually patient will forget next dose as soon as he feels better. But for the meticulous ones I instruct to reduce dosage or even stop after 3-4 doses stretched in a day.

These days’ people are taking medicines directly from Pharmacy after searching internet. Even though I cannot vouch for this trait as it is dangerous even to take Homoeopathy which has been termed without side effects, it’s like playing with tamed lion still its lion although tamed.

We saw Inflenzinum 200 prescribed for preventing swine flu. But I insist you take the medicine from a qualified person, dosage should not exceed one to three pills according to age and sensitivity once a day for one day only; Repeat after one week or so. Believe me, my kids got severe cold and cough after preventive medicine because their immunity is strong enough and no need of extra medicines. This is true for all Persons regularly on some Homoeopathic treatment or supplementation for any reason. They can take only a single dose and not to repeat preventive medication.

To conclude I summarize;

Take single dose or as prescribed by your Physician after determining your sensitivity and never gobble more just because you are feeling better or thinking it is harmless.

If you feel that after taking a dose, your pain or symptom has increased stop the medicine contact your doctor.

If unable to contact your doctor due to some reason a strong coffee; will usually antidotes the extra symptoms.

Never take others medicines for similar complaints unless it is Bio-Chemic remedies. Bio- chemics are surely safe and effective and can be repeated without risk of getting new symptoms.

Water doses work better than dry doses.

Food must be taken after about half an hour after the Dose but water and plain milk can be taken along with Medicines.

Safest Potency will be 6C to begin with. If you see 200 mentioned it could be used, but my earnest advice is not to take IM or 10M without Doctors supervision. These potencies have a potential of creating new symptoms and strong Coffee cannot eradicate them.

Patented products in Homoeopathic name give instant results and surely are safer ; more herbal than other products in the Market; but do not take WHILE YOU ARE ON SOME COURSE of Homoeopathic TREATMENT, it will mask symptoms and outcome may not be the desired one.

Jump in to the band wagon of Homoeopathy see the results on  your own, remove unnecessary thoughts and rumours have a happy Homoeopathic journey.

Homoeopathic Aid in Sleeplessness

10533453_722836554456750_1688926601312596076_n 

Sleeplessness can be a just  trouble or chronic disorder which is mother of so many potential Ills including Diabetes as well as Hypertension, not to mention Acidity. It could strike as young as new-borns which may result in irritation and crying of baby whole day. Again brain development is hampered so it must be treated immediately for your peace of mind also.

For babies cause of sleeplessness must be discovered; which a tough task in itself is. It could be nose block, ear pain, indigestion, cold or hotness of place of the baby etc. Even strong emotions on part of feeding mother will affect baby like anger, depression, and indigestion of its mother.

For Babies Aconitum Napellus 6c will be enough 1 pill crushed and a small bit touched to babies tongue is enough. So as Kali Phos 6x which again given as stated above will calm babies down even if it’s due to vaccination- with mild fever etc. If problem persists see a Homoeopath. Jalapa 6c for babies crying whole night and sleeps whole day.

For young Children it could be due to over exertion or playing or excitement. Aconite 6c or Kali Phos 6x may help but for straining Arnica 6c will help to get sound sleep. Sometimes drinking a hot cup of plain milk before is sufficient to get good sleep. Tell them to breathe deeply and calm down. Kali mur 6x will help if sleeplessness is due to over indulgence in rich food or heavy stomach with discomfort.

For Pregnant ladies it is biggest trouble in later months.  But shifting burden to others reducing ones stress by concentrating on good issues may be beneficial especially in second and subsequent Pregnancies. Above mentioned remedies again are helpful to alleviate stress and to bring on sleep. Nat Mur 6x also helps for good digestion and for sleep; taken everyday morning.

For Men apart from both Kaliphos 6x and Nat Phos 6X Nux Vom 6 c will help. Usually Arnica 6c is also helpful if overstrained or Aconite for tensed individuals. But sometimes Passiflora Q or 6th c will help in long term problem. This is also helpful for smokers who have quit now, but have sleeplessness and tension. Few get up in mid sleep catching for breathe ; called as sleep apnoea. It is completely curable with Homoeopathic remedies like Grindelia 6c.

For Older Men variety of problems bother them apart from Sleeplessness and increased Urination due to diabetes or Prostrate Hypertrophy. They fall in micro sleeps in daytime and sleepless at nights. Firstly they have to accept that all these changes are related to age and mostly can be controlled but not cured. 5-6 hours of sleep is for elderly and its normal; this has to be accepted by them first. Then they have to do to get sound sleep by maintaining sleep hygiene and go along with the tide ; adjust daily routine accordingly.

Also there is Coffea cruda 6c for over joy and sleeplessness alongside hundreds of medicines. But sleep hygiene that is calm environment, unhurried mind state, recognizing that sound sleep is very essential for ones well being and not to sacrifice it for other works thinking its waste of time is crucial. Switching off any gadget emitting light by 9.00pm is essential. It includes Television, computer, Mobile Phone so on and so forth. If you have difficulty in getting to sleep read a good book or plan next day or think of a poem or a story ;sharpen your artistry which will relax you and just lying in the bed calmly at same hour of every night is often, enough to get much needed rest. Do not run behind sleep it has to descend on your senses like an Angel from Heaven. With this note I wish you happy week ahead and sleep like a baby!!
