How to select the right homeopath

If you’re looking for a homeopath, Amy Lansky has a great list of practitioner referrals on her site.

http://www.impossiblecure.com/referrals.php

The most important thing to look for in a homeopath is their homeopathic certification. (CCH, RSHom (NA), DNAHP, DHt, etc) When dealing with a practitioner for something that is chronic, such as Autism, ADHD, ADD, Pandas, LYME, Fibromyalgia, I highly suggest verifying the homeopath’s certifications before selecting a practitioner. Treating chronic illnesses is not the same as treating acute issues. There is a lot of information out there which can help you select the correct acute remedy for the issue you are having, however, when dealing with a chronic illness, you should opt for an experienced homeopath with many years of practice under their belt.

Additionally, if you would like to understand the difference between the various types of homeopathy which are practiced, you can reference Amy Lansky’s Impossible Cure in Chapter 6.

From the NVIC: 2014 State Vaccine Legislation in America: Battle Lines Are Drawn & Your Participation is Needed!

2014 State Vaccine Legislation in America: Battle Lines Are Drawn & Your Participation is Needed!
Posted on NVIC: 2/11/2014
By Dawn Richardson, NVIC Director of Advocacy

Vaccine related legislative activity in states across the country is at an all time high in 2014. The National Vaccine Information Center has been busy monitoring the bills filed in different states and analyzing them for their potential impact on vaccine freedom of choice.

The NVIC Advocacy Portal (NVICAP) is already tracking 58 bills across 24 states. With many bill filing deadlines weeks away, and several upcoming opportunities for amendments on other proposed measures, we expect the number of bills needing grassroots support or opposition to continue to rise.

Battle Lines Being Drawn in States

In 2014, the battle lines are being drawn in the states between those, who want to force citizens to use every federally recommended vaccine and those, who respect and value the legal right to exercise informed consent to medical risk-taking, including vaccine risk-taking. Your participation and action is urgently needed to defend the human right to exercise informed consent to vaccine risk taking in America and push back the Pharma-Medical Trade-Government Health lobby working hard to eliminate or restrict legal vaccine exemptions.

Along with actions you can take in your state to support good legislation or help defeat bad legislation, bill information is being posted on the NVIC Advocacy Portal. It is very important that you take the time to register for this free communication and vaccine choice advocacy network so you can stay informed and get involved.

Education or Marketing and Coercion?

The lines between “education,” marketing and coercion are getting blurred. Public health officials are joining with lobbyists working for pharmaceutical companies and medical trade associations to pressure state legislators to pass bills that require “vaccine education” and signatures of doctors or other state-designed health workers in order for parents to file non-medical exemptions to vaccination for their children to attend daycare or school. Pregnant women are also a target population. For example, both AL SB 294 (Alabama) and PA HB 1567 (Pennsylvania) require expectant parents to receive information about the pertussis vaccine.

Some proposed legislation this year goes so far as to require schools to provide vaccine education programs for children and parents, which is effectively turning our schools into marketing departments for vaccine manufacturers. AL SB 75 (Alabama) and NY A 3703/S 2070 (New York) would require schools to provide meningococcal vaccine education/promotion, while GA HB 162 requires schools in Georgia to educate the parents of sixth-graders about why their children should get HPV vaccine.

Turning Schools into Vaccine Delivery Clinics

Some state legislators are not satisfied with creating school-based vaccine marketing and “education” programs, they want to bring vaccines to children in schools and turn our schools into vaccine delivery clinics. Several states are proposing to set up school- based vaccination clinics, including Pennsylvania (PA SB 251) where state health officials would be authorized to give flu vaccines to kids while they are attending school and SC HB 3236 (South Carolina) that will give the green light to state health officials to give the HPV vaccine to girls entering seventh grade while in school.

Other state legislators want to require schools to post their vaccination rates in the town square. Vermont Senator Kevin Mullin, who unsuccessfully attempted to remove the state’s philosophical vaccine exemption in 2012, is proposing a bill (VT S 194) to require schools and child care facilities to publically post their specific vaccination rates.

Vaccine Industry Watchdog Obtains CDC Documents That Show Statistically Significant Risks of Autism Associated with Vaccine Preservative Thimerosal

Vaccine Industry Watchdog Obtains CDC Documents That Show Statistically Significant Risks of Autism Associated with Vaccine Preservative Thimerosal

Biochemist Brian Hooker, scientific advisor to A Shot of Truth, reveals CDC knew of risks for over a decade.

Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) February 19, 2014

For nearly ten years, Brian Hooker has been requesting documents that are kept under tight wraps by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). His more than 100 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests have resulted in copious evidence that the vaccine preservative Thimerosal, which is still used in the flu shot that is administered to pregnant women and infants, can cause autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders.

Dr. Hooker, a PhD scientist, worked with two members of Congress to craft the letter to the CDC that recently resulted in his obtaining long-awaited data from the CDC, the significance of which is historic. According to Hooker, the data on over 400,000 infants born between 1991 and 1997, which was analyzed by CDC epidemiologist Thomas Verstraeten, MD, “proves unequivocally that in 2000, CDC officials were informed internally of the very high risk of autism, non-organic sleep disorder and speech disorder associated with Thimerosal exposure.”

When the results of the Verstraeten study were first reported outside the CDC in 2005, there was no evidence that anyone but Dr. Verstraeten within the CDC had known of the very high 7.6-fold elevated relative risk of autism from exposure to Thimerosal during infancy. But now, clear evidence exists. A newly-acquired abstract from 1999 titled, “Increased risk of developmental neurologic impairment after high exposure to Thimerosal containing vaccine in first month of life” required the approval of top CDC officials prior to its presentation at the Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) conference. Thimerosal, which is 50% mercury by weight, was used in most childhood vaccines and in the RhoGAM® shot for pregnant women prior to the early 2000s.

Phenomenal Autism & PANDAS Recovery in Progress thanks to Classical Homeopath Pierre Fontaine!!

Pierre Fontaine has shared a new case and the results have been phenomenal!

DOB: 1/15/2008

ASD / PANDAS

During pregnancy Mom was sick (nauseous), had sun poisoning, was Strep B positive and had to take a high dose of penicillin before birth. Parents were stressed (selling home and building a new one). Dad had just returned from Iraq. Dad was given many vaccinations for the deployment. Dad has breathing problem that started 8 years ago. Dad had a vasectomy reversal in order to conceive the baby.

The baby nursed until he was a year and a half. He got salmonella, he was sick all the time. He would get sick with Strep. He got a bump on his face from Strep. At a year and a half he got a virus and high fevers. There were a few fevers before Mom stopped breastfeeding.

When he got high fevers, he would shake and his heart would beat really fast. His breathing was deep. He would shiver and shake in his hands to the point he could not control his body. He was shivering even though he was very hot. It would progress into a cough to the point he would not be able to breathe. As he was crying his breathing became more difficult. He would have sudden onset of symptoms. The first symptom was crying because he could not breathe. He was gasping, it seemed like something was caught his throat, and it always started at night with a whimper, he was not comfortable. It was always 1 to 2 AM and we would steam with a hot shower. Then he would vomit. He would vomit a phlegmy substance, mostly it was like a clear jelly, really slimy. It was not runny. They usually diagnosed him with croup.

He would go to bed healthy and then wake up sick with a real deep, barky, seal like kind of cough. He was given steroids and it would take him a good week to recover from croup.

As a little baby he was quite and seemed to understand what was going on. He has never sung songs or nursery rhymes which continues to this day. He didn’t talk and played by himself.

He was a small child, so small he was easy to carry around, but he would have big growth spurts, now he is slender, strong and heavier.

His gross and fine motor skills are incredibly delayed.
He obsessively played with his underwear and he would tear paper and push it back and forth. Later we tested for him for a speech delay, he didn’t seem to understand what was going on

Starting at 3 years old he regularly got Strep. It always started at night and it always started on his face, usually on the cheek, with a little red, almost pimple, but not a whitehead. This happened every three to four weeks and he’d always have to miss a week of school.

He had his adenoids taken out and sinus surgery but now he has more breathing problems (asthma). He cries and says it hurts under his ribs. He can’t sit still, he seems to be constantly moving to relieve the pain.

Now, he likes birds and the wind, he is a watcher. It brings him great joy to see a bug crawling up a stick. He is often happy and joyous but he is also very destructive; he is a rough lover. He can watch and learn to do. He is extremely observant. He is more independent than most kids, but he does not understand when you say something, because he needs to have stillness. He is very curious; he often asks, “Is this hot?” He is very interested to know if something is hot. He wants to touch it.

REMEDY AND DOSING DIRECTIONS GIVEN

Please note, the remedy name and potency is omitted here due to the fact that it is important to understand that every case requires a different remedy, because each case is unique.

FOLLOW UP I: 11 – 06 – 13

Mom says: BIG IMPROVEMENT FOR 3 DAYS AND THEN GAINS FADED AWAY. Gross motor really improved, fine motor has also improved. He has not gotten off his bike since then.

Folic acid made his tics really bad. He was so aggravated.

GAVE FOUR DOSES (3 drops each)

Speech also got better. He started having more in depth conversations rather than just sitting there, now he’s able to interact. “Will you come with me on a walk” or “how are you today?”. Also the flow and speed of his word use has improved, it’s much less choppy.

He is more affectionate. He is definitely able to interact with kids as well. Earlier he was not able to interact. He can also explain what happened.

The other day he sat down to do some homework; he was able to cut things out that he could not have done before. His coloring is much better, the picture is actually colored in properly, and it’s not just one whole page scribbled in with one color.

He has improved immensely with letters and numbers. He went from not getting letters at all to knowing the whole alphabet; last night he made only one error.

He does a lot of singing now, he’s never done that. He’ll sing for two minutes while he’s in the shower. ??He also has not been sick, previously at this point in the fall he would have been sick many times.

He sat through a movie with us, meaning that his interaction and ability to be with people is better, as well as his interest in the story and ability to focus are better. Also he’s feeling physically comfortable and hasn’t complained of any pain.

But after the first dose, he seemed very in control and then it dwindled away. Then I gave folic acid and MB12. In the last two or three days he has become louder and he has been covering his ears. His gains in interaction and eye contact have remained but his gains in speech and behavior have begun to backtrack, he’s back to obsessively sorting his underwear.

CONTINUE REMEDY (dosing directions given)

FOLLOW UP II: 12 – 12 – 13

Mom says: Five drops seem to affect his mood. Four drops is better.

There have been some great improvements; he sings a lot. In school he has been doing great. He has not been sick. We tested him for Strep and his titters are fine. We also tested Heavy Metals and he is high in Arsenic. His eye contact is great and his speech seems to be coming along. His speech has really grown. He is making a connection with Christmas and talking about the past and using great descriptive words. Before I would ask him “How was your day?” and would never get a response. Now he answers and describes his day.

Socially he seems to be doing well. He is relating to kids, before he could not communicate but now it is getting better. He is relating to kids saying things like “I don’t like this kid because he was mean to me” etc. He is very aware of his environment and aware that he wants everyone to be treated as equal. If someone does not have a paper he’ll get one for him, etc. Before he didn’t follow kids at all. He was the outskirt kid. He didn’t interact. It was always only parallel.

Now, he gets the kids. He can be very engaged for a long time.
But he still has a comprehension issue, for example he was kicking a kid and the teacher said “don’t kick” and he said, “OK” but he didn’t understand that he was being told as a reprimand.
He nods his head and agrees with the broad meaning rather than understanding how it relates to him.

When we ran out of the remedy he became very aggressive. He was constantly fighting with the kids at school. Banging with a toy hammer. He would grab anything and intentionally want to hurt. He also became very sensitive and had meltdowns.

Right at about the third day after dosing his clapping and verbal tics get worse, he been saying “shut up” and “stupid” in tune to Jingle Bells, he does this a lot. His OCD increases and he starts to play with toilet paper and obsessively sort things out. Right after I give him the remedy the clapping reduces, his verbal stimming reduces but they reduce the least. He still wets his bed and his handwriting has been awful possibly due to muscular weakness.

REMEDY CONTINUE AT CURRENT POTENCY, RAISE TO NEXT POTENCY IF CURRENT POTENCY DOESN’T HELP

Need to make that wellness consistent. Mom has a great kit.

FOLLOW UP III: 01 – 14 – 14

Higher potency has been quite useful.

Mom says, VERBAL TICS HAVE REDUCED GREATLY! His vocabulary keeps expending. He is getting closer to grade level. He is now at a 5 year old level. When we first started there were just a few words.

He can have a conversation and recall. He is using bigger sentences. Before he was using only single words, he didn’t have the ability to expand. “Juice” “yes” “no”.

Now he says, “You need to get out of bed, I’m hungry, will you make me waffles?” or “I went to the store with grandma and got this toy.”

He can play and have a story line.

He can write well. In school they like to have them write their name. Before he could not write his name. Now he can write his name in order and yesterday was THE best. Now the mechanics of writing is no problem. He is also doing better with copying words.

His eye contact is great.

There has not been even one case of Strep since we started homeopathy. Last year, a snap shot of this time of year, he would have already missed 2 months of school! And everyone else in the house would have been sick with it, this year, no one is sick. When the doctor tested for Strep he was not sick but his titters were off chart.

Aggression and fighting has been down significantly since dosing. He fights with his brother a bit, but it is down as well.

Socially he looks just like a kindergarten kid. He transitions well. The school has no complaints.

He has had a growth spurt. In gross motor he is doing great. The fine motor was where he was struggling but that’s getting better now.

ALLERGIES

He has a dry barky cough, and his eyes are a little red and puffy. He also has runny nose. It does not run. It is congested but does not drip out. He is constantly sniffing at it.

Update on Nicholas – Coming up on our 4 Year Anniversary with Homeopathy and Pierre Fontaine!!

To those of you who have emailed to check up on us, thanks so much – its so nice to hear from those of you who are still fighting so vigilantly to heal your children from autism, aspergers and adhd!! I hope that you all find the path to recovering your child!

Nicholas continues to exceed our expectations — I could not be happier with him or his progress. He is an absolute joy to be around. We’ve taken him on vacations, to concerts, Broadway shows, sporting events, etc. – we are far from the people we used to be who were never able to leave the house for long without chaos happening. He does well in school, has friends, plays sports – all things we thought would never be in the cards for our son.

I still don’t keep much track of when Nicholas has had his remedy last, it was probably a few months ago. As time goes on, the time in between doses seems to become longer and longer. We still consult with Pierre Fontaine from time to time and I cannot speak highly enough of him or his dedication to our children.

For those of you who wanted specifics on what supplements Nicholas currently takes, here is the current listing:

Vitamin Code Multi-Vitamin

Vitamin C

Green Pasture Butter Oil/Fermented Cod Liver Oil Blend

Keep going!! You’ll get there!!!

June 2013 Update on Nicholas

I wrote this post in June 2013 – but never got back to publish it…. sharing it with you all now…

My son is graduating 2nd grade this year and moving onto a new school. As I sat in his finale assembly watching him sing with the graduating class the other day, my eyes flooded with tears. It seems like a lifetime ago that I dropped him off there for the first time for the special needs pre-k program – where he couldn’t talk, could barely do much of what was asked of him and needed to be strapped into a chair so he would sit in one place. He couldn’t even attend an assembly back then much less participate in one.

Fast forward to today, where he has broken free of autism – and it happened in front of our eyes. I still remain grateful, every – single – day, of where my son is today – of how much life has changed – of how he can sit and talk to me and tell me about his day.

I’m also grateful every day that at a time where I had had enough and was about to crack, that I was led to try homeopathy. I can’t thank our homeopath, Pierre Fontaine, enough – there aren’t enough ways to say thank you and there certainly aren’t enough languages to say thank you in. If there was ever a time in which someone walked into your life, that they were there to change it in some profound way for the better, this was certainly it. Pierre has told me that it was “all me” that day of my consult where he found the one remedy that transformed my child. That is merely him being modest – while I was answering him and talking from what may have seemed to have been a stream of consciousness – I certainly feel that it was 2% me and 98% him that was able to pull a remedy from everything that I had said.

I don’t know how much of the cloud my son was in was caused by biomed. I also know that biomed did do some good too – however, it ruled our lives around the clock. Chelation stirred up a lot of yeast in a child who already was very yeasty. And the cycle was never-ending.

Update on Nicholas – OUR THREE YEAR HOMEOPATHY ANNIVERSARY!

It’s been ages since I’ve written a post for this blog and I never thought I’d be able to say this, but life has returned to normal for all of us in this house. Nicholas continues to do well and exceed our expectations. He plays sports, he has friends. He is just so much fun to be around and his sense of humor and laugh is infectious! We went from having a child we couldn’t take into a restaurant to the one who is the best behaved one in the place! That in itself is shocking – but I’m not complaining!

It’s been a while since Nicholas has gotten/needed his original remedy that Pierre Fontaine prescribed. If I gave it to him once a month, I’m probably exaggerating. I don’t keep track anymore – it’s so nice I don’t need to. The only supplements he is currently taking include a basic multi-vitamin (a normal dose!), some fish oil (also a normal dose!) and some vitamin c. He is not on a restricted diet of any kind – he never was.

We are currently working with Pierre to reassess his case to see if he has moved to a new remedy. I am amazed at how his case taking process has evolved from our very first consult with him three years ago. Every time I see him, it is abundantly clear how much he cares for these children and is constantly working with other homeopaths to refine his skills to bring his cases to the next level. I am always in awe of his knowledge of homeopathy – clearly knowledge built throughout the career of a true homeopath and healer, not something merely learned during a six month course.

Anyway, it’s a beautiful day and the spring-like day is calling my name… to those of you who have emailed to check in on us, thank you! My wish for you is to find the path to recovery for your child, whichever road that may be and wherever that journey may lead you!
