Lets face it, today we have so many toxins in every day life. Our children are sicker than ever before with child cancer rates higher than ever. It is estimated that around 800 children will be diagnosed with cancer this year alone in Australia and 1:100 children have autism or ASD. This is a dramatic increase from around 1:2000 back in the 1970’s. Homeopathic Detox Therapy (HDT) is an option for helping heal the body.
Homeopathic Detox Therapy uses a few different techniques to rid the body of toxins. One of these is isopathy which is giving the exact medicine that has caused the toxicity back in homeopathic potency. If you would like a quick reminder on how Homeopathy works check this out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xbZoJw9jJ7E&t=61s.
HDT has been used for hundreds of years. Back when ink pens were used, men would be poisoned by the ink of their ink pens from licking the end of the nib to keep it moist. They were often given Sepia which is a homeopathic remedy made from ink to help resolve the ink poisoning. Even in the allopathic or western medical model isopathy is accredited. For example the use of antiserum (diluted snake venom) is an acceptable treatment for a venomous snake bit.
Along with isopathy we are often using bowel nosodes, often when toxicity is high the gut system is not functioning properly. Bowel nosodes help support normal gut function or to help resume normal gut function. HDT is gentle and slow, often each detox lasts around 8 – 12 weeks, with the goal that the detox is gradual, and gentle.
A case review
A young boy was brought in to my clinic by his mother, he is 7 years old. He has not had any formal diagnosis of autism however he display some traits of autism. He has trouble with making friends at school and doesn’t seem to understand personal relationships, and tends to spend a lot of time alone at school. He does not hold eye contact, he flaps his hand a lot when excited, he high pitch creams when excited. After taking a detailed case the mum says that she feels that he has not been the same since he had his 4 year old vaccinations. I put him on a 12 week protocol detoxing the DTaP Diphtheria, Whooping Cough, Tetanus and Polio vaccination.
Over the coming weeks he began to be more relaxed and calm, less melt downs, he seemed less frustrated and could focus on activities longer than before. He was sleeping better, the teacher had commented that he was interacting with other class mates more and contributing more in class. As the weeks went on his mum was excited to tell me that he had been really sweet with his little brother and given him a cuddle, She had never seen him cuddle anyone before this. He was holding eye contact and had not had the high pitch scream for a few weeks.
