Thank you all for the feedback regarding Pierre’s book. I know many of you are anxious to get to the case studies, so I am going to start posting these in addition to the chapters of his book. Here is Pierre’s intro about his case studies:

The Case for Healing Autism

The following are my case notes. By sharing these cases I have three wishes:

1. I hope these files can serve as an eye opener for people who don’t have a
direct experience with autism. The cliché has people thinking of autism as a
lack of social skills and speech accompanied at times with savant qualities as
in the movie “Rainman” but autism is often an extremely physically painful
disease. I want this to clearly come through.

2. We cannot overlook the pain parents endure. The emotional pain and the
challenges for them are extreme. Among the mountain of problems they
face, they suffer an eighty percent divorce rate. I think there ought to be a
national campaign to organize a buddy support program for parents.

3. Relief or reversal can definitely happen.

I touch upon the reasons the remedies are chosen but I don’t go into a deeply
detailed professional analysis. I don’t think it is useful to speak about Stage
Fifteen of the Carbon series in the Table of Elements or the Fagales plant
order and the casuarinacea family within that order of plants. That is
homeopathic parlance that is not relevant here. If anyone, after reading this
book, wishes to spend four years studying homeopathy that is fantastic, but
it is not the goal of this book. Rather, these cases are meant to be
inspirational for parents.

Though I edited these cases a few are still long and detailed with a lot of
follow-ups. The attempt was two-fold:

1: Retain the feel of the cases, and,

2: Give a realistic view of the process of reversing autism. As you will see, it
is not a straight line from here to there, though optimistic ,the road is rather
full of ups and downs.

The consultations were taken through the parents to give voice to the child.
This was done either through the pregnancy as “the first witness” or through
the mother or father withholding their ego to access into the child to bring
his whole experience to life and arrive at a good homeopathic remedy in the
manner described in Chapter 4 “Surrogacy”. I consider this a gift, an
incredible and very beautiful opportunity that never ceases to awe me in the
perfection of the Universe. I don’t think we have a better option and to a
large extent there is little more we can do but to continue refining the
process. It is literally, “One Heart, One Mind.”

Before this idea fell in my lap, I thought the Universe could not be so flawed
as to leave a disease without access. When I found this breach through the
process I call surrogacy or “One Heart, One mind”, the logic was so obvious
I felt almost silly as well as taken aback by its simplicity. Once I found out
that “One Mind” is at least as old as the Upanishads and had been explored
thoroughly by brilliant physicists, I felt chagrined for not figuring it out

The method of suspending the ego is not an easy one because of the myriads
of intruding thoughts that prevent the process from occurring. Most of these
cases show the openness and the spontaneity of the parents in following this
method. It is very common for parents to have all kinds of intruding
thoughts such as “what I want to say may be wrong and it is going to lead
Pierre in the wrong direction” or “this does not make any kind of sense” or
“It is so silly, I’d better not say that.” These thoughts prevent spontaneity.
Most of the cases presented here show the parents suspending their thoughts
and dancing with the questions in whichever way the case itself ought to go,
rather than controlling its development.

The first case is a very insightful presentation of the child and a textbook
presentation of the remedy I gave. The third case is very straightforward and
fabulously honest about how the mother perceives her child through her
experience of him. During case taking, she becomes totally imbued with
him, she breathes him through every single cell of his body, and in return is
able to relate to me what her sense of him is within her own body. These
cases speak with a heightened level of honesty, which is absolutely crucial.
This mom does not sugar coat what she experiences from her child, which
can be harsh but that is exactly what is needed. We tap the experience of the
disease, not who or what the child is. Case Sixteen gives the case in a
methodical, perfect analysis of the child demonstrating that we can access
depth from other leads as well.

In essence, by suspending their preconceived ideas, what all of these cases
have in common is that the parents didn’t fear sounding stupid, illogical or
bluntly honest. These qualities are key to unlock the whole. By doing so, we
can recreate the state during pregnancy or the state of being the child is at
this present moment due to disease, which leads to the remedy. Recreating
the state during pregnancy or the state of the child within the parent can be
done so accurately that I have had parents excuse themselves to go vomit in
the bathroom or know with one hundred percent certainty the inner
experience of their child. This is the practicality of “One Mind, One Heart”
which purpose is to allow healing to occur. So, how do we get there?

Practically, the in-depth consultation breaks down into five conversational
stages. Here is an example adapted from one of my neuro-typical cases.

    Level one: I understand you suffer from headaches.

“I have a really bad headache which on a scale from one to ten is a nine.
This happens every time I go into the sunlight quickly, particularly in the

This is simple, rational and perfectly typical, the purpose is to be factual and
understood. It is a perfect way to start but the depth of the information is
limited. We don’t learn anything about the nature of the pain at all nor do
we know how it affects the person. We also don’t know anything about the
pain scale as it is not put in perspective. We also don’t know exactly where
the pain is or if the headache is accompanied by nausea, eye pain or muscle
weakness or any other physical, emotional and mental symptoms. This is
what I broadly call a “left-brain” answer.

Continuing the conversation for more precise information the description
eventually expands into a creative “as if” or “like” type of answer.

    Level two: Can you describe the pain?

“It is a pounding pain; it feels as if there are a thousand little hammers in my
head knocking on my skull.”

This is exactly the kind of answer we can expect. One can imagine the pain a
little more, and it is a little more vivid. It “feels” more real but it is not true
because no one has a thousand little hammers in the head. It is an
imagination, a feeling, or thought. It is very real for sure but it is not true.
There is nothing wrong with this answer at all. It can be used to find a
remedy but we can do deeper and depth brings accuracy. I broadly call

    Level three: Can you tell a little more?

“It is a pounding headache because when I come out of the building the light
hits the retina of my eye and suddenly the blood vessels have to close which
creates pressure and that is why I have the headaches.

This is justifying right-brain answer with left-brain rationale. The brain
wants to keep the conversation under control and prevent, at all costs,
sounding silly. There is little else to us that is more crucial than sounding
rational and knowledgeable to an interlocutor; it makes us feel like we
belong. The feeling of belonging goes back to our mammal roots, as an
innate desire to be connected within a herd. This feeling is further
heightened in a relationship when one is expected to solve a problem.
Sounding silly or off-putting is avoided in favor of wanting to be in the

    Level four: (After many questions asked to explore the various complains,
    most commonly in the second hour.)

Describe pounding without using the word “pounding”, please.
“Hum, describe why there is pounding?”

Here the purpose of changing the question out loud is for the mind to stay in
control, remain comfortable within the confines of logic. At this point a little
frustration can settle in, since the mind has said all it could say. It is tapped
out, but we can get past it.

Most of all conversations we have fit within these four patterns.
From a homeopathic point of view all are perfectly fine as all remedies have,
within their realms through provings and clinical pictures, information that
fits all of these expressions. What I am looking for is actually is to go one
step further. This is when true information comes through literally without
thought. At that level the answers are neither left nor right brain. It is the
fifth way of speaking.

Continuing within the context of headache of this case, when the person
says, “pounding” the conversation can go in different directions as follows.

When she said “pounding” she actually punctuated that with a spontaneous
slashing hand gesture. The spontaneity of the slashing hand (as if someone
were slashing through jungle vegetation) gesture did not fit the word
“pounding.” The mind-body connection was singing two different tunes.

The speech is controlled by the mind but the body language was
subconscious and spontaneous. The latter contains far more valuable
information than the one controlled by the mind. Spontaneity offers depth
that is often not probed hence the difficulty of feeling comfortable within
that mental space.

I ask to drop the word “pounding.” There is no need to repeat it because it is
a common word used to describe headaches to begin with and, far more
importantly, it does not fit the unconscious gesture. By dropping the word
we essentially get rid of the brain connection. The idea is to trigger
spontaneous thoughtless speech to get rid of the gap between what is said
and the spontaneous hand gesture. Probing other symptoms, in her case
menstrual pain or any other discomfort we are looking to see if the slashing
gesture comes back. If it does, it will probably also come back when
speaking about a dream, a fear or anything else. Of course, it may also be
that this hand gesture does not repeat which is perfectly fine; it was simply a
dead lead, no big deal. Most commonly, there are several leads at play at the
same time; it is easy to eliminate the dead ends.

Now, the real beauty is when the slashing comes back through the different
physical symptoms as well as in the dreams and the fear. As the gap, only
obvious to me, narrows by probing for increasingly spontaneous speech she
described the pain as “hard” and “bending” pain. Logically pain is rarely
spoken of as “bending” while at face value this is seemingly quite logical
within the context of flowing speech, we are moving toward non-logic. The
speech is becoming a spontaneous voice.

Here is the narrative of how this translated in the consultation room:
“I remember this bending pain (she makes a curved slashing motion). The
first time I experienced this pain was when I had my first backache. I was
seventeen. It began after I was punished for doing something wrong. I don’t
even remember what it was that I did but right after that I had the pain.”
The connection is now made. Ever so smoothly and going further I begin to
involve her senses.
Does this pain have a smell?
“It has a very clean smell.”

The point is to try to get as many of the senses as possible involved in the
thoughtlessness of it all. The very experience of it through the senses
bypasses or keeps the brain uninvolved.

Does the pain have a color?
“It is bright, very smooth green that smells really clean.”

Nothing logical between “smooth green” and “hard.” That is good, “smooth”
relates to the sense of touch. This is not a guess or a thought as in the
beginning. It is all very spontaneous. If I were to ask this kind of question
too prematurely I would get this “hum, I don’t know (thinking), I am
thinking… (thinking) “Red, may be?” (Imagination)” that is not a connected
answer. To arrive there is the art of practicing homeopathy rather than just
asking questions willy nilly just to collect information.

What was the physical experience in the back when this happened?”
“That of being slashed with a bamboo” (slashing gesture).

By keeping the conversation seemingly rational so that she does not feel
totally weirded out and by using her ability to dance with the questions we
arrived at a perfect description of the remedy.

Bamboo is used in some countries for caning people when they have done
something wrong (according to the authorities). It is also “bending” and
“hard.” It is even used in Asia to build scaffoldings. It fits the color “green”
(vision sense) and the sense of touch with “smooth.” This lady never went to
such a country; all that happened was that she tapped into Universal
consciousness of the time. Of course, the other side of Bambusa exists as
well. Calm, serene, bending in the wind but her experience was of the harsh

I recommended the remedy Bambusa, which helped her greatly with all of
her complaints.

Some homeopaths would like you to think they can intuit this kind of
information and call their brand of homeopathy “intuitive homeopathy.”
Don’t leave yourself or your child in the hands of an intuitive while you are
the closest one.
It has to come from the interested party, with zero degree of
separation or in the case of a child on the spectrum, one degree of
separation. We all know our own remedy; we just need to remove the
obstacles between “it” and “us” for healing to occur. It is the delusion that
we are separate from the Whole.

Most of the following cases develop along this very same process of
disconnecting from the mind. I hope you enjoy these cases and the beauty
that is brought forward by this process.

Some cases include the answers to the questionnaire we provide prior to the
consultation. Do notice the discrepancy between what people write and what
the reality of the case actually is.

All the remedy names are in Latin as it is what we traditionally use around
the globe. Whether I speak with a homeopath in Kenya, Pakistan or France
we all know what Lycopodium is and its characteristics. I keep with this
labeling, as this is the best way to research the remedies in the Materia
