I have specialized in autism for many years. It was by far the most challenging time of my professional career. I tried to probe the depth of it so much that I had a radio show on Autismone.org called “Going within.” I learned an enormous amount from these children. The number one lesson I learned is to take all children’s cases through the mother’s state during pregnancy much as in George’s case (see case). Once I understood that, the challenge of these cases became like all others.
The foreword by Marie Hernandez is testimony of what can be done for these children.
It should be said that taking the case through the mother’s state during the pregnancy is unconventional but it is by far the most productive. In 80% of the cases the mother can relate this most authentic state. Many people tell me at first that the pregnancy was “normal.” “I was happy to be pregnant.”.Once I ask a little, it is very rare it is absolutely so but even then I ask “tell me about happy”. The state of pregnancy is not the cause of the autism but it is logical that it is the shortest route to find the primary remedy for the child.
This case stands as an “old case” I arrived at the correct remedy in what I would now consider a haphazard way. It is possible to reverse this condition now on a more consistent and homeopathically relevant way.
Up to now we have some pretty common issues of children with PDD-NOS, I decided to go straight into what the mother mentioned first about “social peace” and acknowledge her instinct.
His jealousy toward his brother may seem common. A little bit of jealousy for a couple of days is okay, but in this case it is continuing at a very high level for a very long time therefore it is significant.
Of course, it is common for children with PDD-NOS to not mix with others but for him it was an unsocial behavior rather than just being in his own world. I thought it was homeopathically significant.
This kind of result seemed perfectly good to me. Continuing on the same track was the best thing to do.
The schoolwork is so much better than before. Combined with the diminished jealousy that was central from day one this is perfect.
The remedy was repeated several times and then we lost touch until the mother invited me to an autism meeting she organized.
She reported that he was doing great. One year after that she came back. The anti-social behavior changed totally over time.
We repeated the remedy a couple of times because the appropriate potency had changed. He is doing well now. Much as in the Jollie’s case (see case) the appropriate did not change.
