9 year old with autismhi
I am new to all of this and recently began to see a homeopathic doctor for my 9 year old son with moderate autism. Our biggest issues are his obsessions to do what he wants to do all day long. He gets these things stuck in his head and no matter if we are doing something fun he obsesses and gets upset about not doing what he wants. He currently wants to write pages and pages of stories and movies on hundreds of sheets of paper. He's a pretty healthy child with no known allergies. Born via c section. He had two ear infections as a child. He did have a reaction to the DTaP vaccine when he was 4. His arm swelled and became red. The strange thing is each time he gets sick the injection site swells like a tiny mosquito bite. He sweats a lot and has small white bumps on his cheeks that have been there for years. He's very strong willed and his default is to yell his responses when a demand is placed. He's constantly moving and constantly running a script of his songs and movie out loud. He hates flying insets and hates hair cuts and anything that requires someone to examine his body. He sleeps well but wakes early.
His current Dr recommended Sulfur. But he became even more agitated even at the lower doses and began having bathroom accidents. We stopped sulfur and recently began Thuja 6C and are not seeing any change. She recommended increasing to 12C. We are giving once a day.
i would greatly appreciate any advice!!

♥ Reva V 2 months agoHi there. Could someone please advise? We increased Thuja from 6C to 30C today. I have noticed a slight improvement in mood, but it’s too soon to really tell.
jbh8182 2 months agoPlease wait for a day. Thuja 30c is too light dose. You can continue until then. Thanks
♥ Reva V 2 months agoThank you! So you advise not to give Thuja 30c tomorrow? His mood did seem slightly improved today as did his obsession to write down all his raving thoughts. Thanks!
jbh8182 2 months agoPlease continue Thuja
♥ Reva V 2 months agoPlease buy Phosphorus 30c and Dulcamara 30c in pills
Day 1, Day 3, Day 5, please give one dose (2 pills) of Phosphorus 30c in the morning
Day 2, Day 4, Day 6, please give one dose (2 pills) of Dulcamara 30c in the morning
Please report in the 7 th day. You can write anytime in the middle if you notice any change or you have a question. I suggest to stop Thuja 30c, before you start these doses.
There is a strong belief that vaccination (esp. MMR) and Autism has a connection.

♥ Reva V 2 months agoThank you for the response. Per the last message I read I did give Thuja 30c this morning (3 pills). I have to say yesterday and today have been great improvements from what we’ve been seeing lately. He transitions better and isn’t so stuck on preferred tasks. Do you still recommend stopping and proceeding with the 2 remedies you listed? Thank you!

jbh8182 2 months agoIt is great to hear that your son responds to Thuja so well. Please continue Thuja as long as the improvement continues. You can also buy Thuja 200 (which is more commonly the potency expected to work) as the follow up if necessary
So please continue with Thuja only. Phos and Dulc on hold now

Here is our update. Thursday, Friday and Saturday my son took Thuja 30C in the morning. The first day I saw slight improvement. More in the morning and declined in the afternoon. On Friday he seems in a better mood and transitioned better. Saturday he was very hyperactive and seemed to be on edge. Today, Sunday I did not give the Thuja. He’s extremely emotional and talking (scripting his shows and songs) non stop. Anything that deviates from what he wants to do really upsets him.
How would you advise we proceed? We desperately need some peace here!! His body and mind race all day long. It’s exhausting for all of us! He just seems irritated and on edge all the time.
I can also answer and medical or physical questions you may have for him to get a better understanding.
jbh8182 2 months agoHe is also very adverse to any attention. If someone speaks to him or attempts to interact he yells and says “no thank you!!” They could be asking him anything and he yells. I’ve also noticed he will randomly go from crying to happy while watching his TV shows. Even if something sad didn’t happen. He recalls old behaviors while watching shows. For example if he exhibited a self injurious behavior like hitting his head years ago and we happen to watch a show he viewed years ago he will all of a sudden take up those behaviors. Almost like he recalls them.
He craves salty and carb foods even after he’s already eaten.
