Homeopathy Recovery Story: Autism & Verbal Apraxia

My friend, L, wrote up a synopsis of her son’s recovery story for me to share with everyone. When I heard of the amazing progress her son had made with classical homeopathy & Pierre Fontaine, I felt compelled to look into homeopathy. This was one of the recovery stories which made me make our initial appointment with Pierre. Her son had autism and verbal apraxia. Thank you for sharing your story, L!

I have twin boys. J was always the most vocal of the 2. Even when he was less than 2 months old, he would take in everything in his environment, watching everyone. Everyone was amazed. He babbled a lot and laughed. I just knew he would be class clown and in constant trouble. As time went on, he wouldn’t feed himself, wouldn’t imitate me, the babbling was gone, etc. When Early Intervention came to do evaluations, he was totally in his own world and would tiptoe past someone like there was no one there. He was also pretty much mute at this point. Forget about going out as a family. J would try to run off the second he was let go and he was so not into holding hands. He would never sit for more than a couple of seconds.

The EI team worked very hard with J and we saw some improvements. They even started taking him for walks and trying to teach him to sit at places like McDonalds since that was one of the few places within walking distance. We then started seeing a DAN dr and started with MB12 shots, etc. We saw some hyperactivity which calmed down and he started babbling a couple of words. We took J to a pediatric neurologist who said he had verbal apraxia in addition to the autism. Someone once mentioned homeopathy and I knew I wanted to try that but had no direction, knew no one local to go to.

Then one day someone who has since become a good friend started posting on J’s school’s email group and mentioned homeopathy and Pierre Fontaine. She gave me guidance but I was hesitant to take that final step. After an appt with the DAN dr, my husband and I looked at each other and decided to contact Pierre. After a 3-1/2 hour consultation I hoped for the best.

Seconds after the 1st dose, J sang part of a song that was playing on TV. You should’ve seen the look on my face. Little by little, his language and vocabulary blossomed. He can hold a short conversation now. He had never really paid much attention to his twin brother. Now they are the best of friends and inseparable. He never played with toys (except puzzles) or other kids before. Now he enjoys toys and looks for his friend down the block. Halloween used to be so hard because we could never get him to wear the costume. Now he loves dress-up play and making believe he is a character. There are not many kids his age around here but if we go to the playground he loves running around with the other children.

He was evaluated by the school psychologist 15 months after starting his remedy and, while J still has some catching up to do, she found no signs of autism or pdd-nos. For kindergarten he will be attending a regular public school in an integrated 12:1:1 class. He is fully potty trained, enjoys his school, camp, swimming lessons, and horseback rides on those few occasions we can spring for that. The swimming lessons are at the Y in a group of typical children and he has held his own quite well. He’s just like one of the other kids. Just a few minutes ago I asked him to move over on the sofa and he said “stop telling me what to do, Mommy.” Ah the joys of typical childhood. Yes, he knew he had to apologize for that comment. 😉 And he is definitely that little class clown I knew he would be.
