Eric’s Homeopathy Recovery in Progress…. Autism, Apraxia, Ataxic Cerebal Palsy, Scoliosis, Severe Central hypotonia, GI issues….

Thank you, Ann, for sharing your progress with Pierre Fontaine – I am thrilled for Eric and your family – this is just amazing news!!

First, a little background:
Eric has autism, ataxic cerebral palsy, apraxia of speech, scoliosis, severe central hypotonia, GI issues….you name it. When I first heard about Pierre, I had been doing biomedical treatment, with my son Eric, for 2 years, 9 months. I was getting frustrated with the supplement regime and we had hit a plateau. At that point, Eric had about 20 words he used with any regularity. He could only say one-syllable words and only one, maybe two, at a time. We had controlled his severe anxiety and outbursts/meltdowns with 5-HTP and l-theanine. He was on 23 different supplements, most of those given 2-3 times a day. We had removed gluten, dairy, soy, artificial additives/preservatives, eggs and peanuts from his diet. Still we battled chronic diarrhea, which his GI specialist said was “normal”. When we noticed the spinal curvature, we took him to a pediatric orthopedic specialist. He diagnosed a 23 degree curvature. He told us that he would normally prescribe a brace, but since Eric has autism, he wasn’t going to because there was no use. (There is nothing quite like listening to a doctor tell you, in so many words, your child isn’t worth helping.)
This kind of treatment was becoming the norm for us. Doctors weren’t sure what to do, so they just didn’t bother.
We stopped his physical and occupational therapies at the end of August, 2010. He hated it, and frankly, after 4 years it just wasn’t helping. We stopped speech therapy 2 months later because something at the school was making him very ill. The school wasn’t interested in finding and treating the cause, and I wasn’t willing to fight them when the therapy really wasn’t helping. I could get so much more out of him when I worked with him at home than they could and we had been having problems with him refusing to do anything they had him do in therapy at home. He seemed to feel that anything done in therapy was “work” and didn’t go home.,
Our son was turning 5 in one month. He could barely speak, couldn’t feed himself with utensils, was still in diapers, angry, frustrated and generally miserable. So, when I heard about Pierre, I thought it sounded too good to be true, but something told me to take a leap of faith and try it. Thank God I did.
We started his remedy on September 11, 2010. Within 15 minutes of the first dose, we saw a change. It was like his whole body breathed a sigh of relief and relaxed. He slept for 12 hours that night and awoke a new child. He was calm, attentive, relaxed and engaged. It lasted for about 4 days, then started slipping. With Pierre’s guidance, we have seen remarkable progess over the last 5 months. Eric can now speak in sentences. Some of it is parrot speech, some is appropriate, spontaneous speech. Bottom line, it IS speech. Last week, he recited “Itsy, Bitsy Spider”. He now plays (and fights and competes) with his brother. Before there was little interest beyond screaming if his younger brother cried or fussed. But the biggest improvements have to do with his GI issues, scoliosis and ACP. Since starting homeopathy, he has only had a few bouts with diarrhea instead of daily, as before. He can now tolerate dairy, without spaciness or diarrhea, and eggs, without breaking out in hives. Gluten is still a bit of an issue in that it will cause diarrhea, but no behavioral symptoms. We have not challenged him with soy (it caused seizures) or peanuts (I just don’t want to take that chance).
While bathing him, I noticed his curvature didn’t seem as pronounced. I took him to my chiropractor (I wasn’t about to give that useless ortho doc another penny!). She x-rayed him and discovered that the curvature had improved to about 13 degrees! I say “about” because she only has a stand-up machine and he had to hold onto something to stand. She had also noticed over the prior two monthly visits that his muscle had improved considerably and was surprised to learn we were no longer going to a physical therapist. We have seen his fine and gross motor skills improve so that he is now able to consistently use a fork to feed himself, get on and off furniture without falling, manipulate small toys and sit cross-legged on the floor without help.
Behavior-wise, he is now better behaved than out NT 2 year old. No meltdowns in about 4 months, but he does get frustrated when we can’t understand what he is trying to tell us. The apraxia makes him very difficult to understand sometimes.
But the best, so far, took place on February 17, 2011. He managed to bring himself to a standing position from the floor, without pulling up. I looked up and he was just standing completely erect, albeit a bit shakily, in the middle of our living room! He stood there for a few seconds – a huge smile on his face, practically glowing with pride – then gently lowered himself back to the floor. It was the first time he had ever stood, unassisted, in his life! Although he has attempted this many times in the past, he has never risen above a crouch and always fell – never the controlled lowering back to the floor. I was thrilled beyond belief, but afraid it was a fluke, kinda of a one-time thing. But no, he did it again a couple of hours later.
In the days since then, he has been pulling up on furniture and letting go, practicing balancing. I have also caught him practicing standing in his bed, and he does it pretty well!
We are beyond thrilled with his progress, so far and look forward to even more improvements in the coming months.

    Hi there…
    Good to here about your sons progress.
    Just, an additional info on alternative treatment options available for autism…
    “Pranic healing”..a non touch therapy very well known and established in united states….This can be done in combination with any on going therapies, as it doesn’t require taking any internal medications .
    My husband took the class from the Master steven Co , the senior disciple of the founder , who practices and teaches pranic healing in US. As per Master’s words,He had completely , 100%, cured his own daughters case of Autism by practicing “pranic healing”. You can see his details here:
