SEVERAL FOLLOW-UPS: (The remedy was repeated a few times)
Rudy has been receiving biofeedback for the last 3 months a couple of times a week.
I present this case to suggest that homeopathy could be tried early in the developmental stage of these conditions to “nip’em in the bud.” Instead of medicating for the long term, a child can be transformed from a hellish, difficult life to having a healthy, happy vibrant existence.
I noticed parents bring children with ADD or ADHD at the last minute. Usually the school has been asking for the child to be on medication for quite some time because they tend to be disruptive in class. The parents resist the pressure to medicate and they come in, after having tried everything they could think of, almost in a state of panic. Something must be done now. These are complex issues and to work under the gun is not comfortable. I hope this book can help bring children earlier into the homeopath’s consultation room.
At this point, I was rather fascinated because the parent had not mentioned the dyslexia. Actually the dyslexia in this case was never mentioned nor explained but it was dealt with perfectly in the end, as we’ll see.
At night, he calls out for his father instead of his mother. It is a matter of life or death, it is not a nurturing issue in which case he would be asking for his mother.
It sounds like the pregnancy was very difficult and I assumed that the state of the child was similar to the mother’s. The mother was terrified and so is he. Now I would not just assume it to be the case, I would take the case through the mother.
At the time of this case, which was 15 years ago, I cross-referenced a few of his characteristic features and voila! The good old-fashioned way and it worked wonderfully. Do compare this case with Erika’s lupus case (see case), for example. The level of details is vastly different. It is like watching a black white TV and then switching to color. In Erika’s case, one can actually feel the way she is. Here we only have an idea, which, fortunately, was good enough to recommend something accurate.
Comparing these two cases really shows the reason why we are so much more accurate now than back then a few years ago.
The main issue was presented as dyslexia, but I think ADHD was their biggest concern. In the end, the ADHD and the dyslexia (and much more) were resolved. That is the way homeopathy works.
Can you imagine how much more peaceful the house must be now and how much rest everyone is getting? The whole family is affected when a child is struggling like this. It is not the child’s fault of course; it is the disorder that is making life like that.
“He doesn’t have the internal violence ha had before.” I find that statement so very revealing. The way she says it is like something has been removed from the child. It is not the same as saying “He is OK, he is less disruptive.” “The internal violence has been removed. That is deep and beautiful. There is so much less emotional pain.
