This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.

Did you want me to take this on. I have successfully cured a couple of Asperger's cases, although there were all older boys. That of course doesn't mean I can definitely suggest a cure here, but I am familiar with the problem.

Ok well I hadn't remembered that, but if he did have a huge aggravation that means that dosage needs to be handled very very carefully.

Let me look over it again, see what I can see.

I have been moving house, so I have fallen behind a little on these forum cases. Your sons's case is on the top of my list now.

Apart from the Apis, has anything else been prescribed for him homoeopathically?

It is an interesting case. Can you tell me anything else he says, no matter how irrational.

If that is too hard to do off the top of your head, keep a diary for a day, write down ANYTHING he says, it does not need to make sense.

It is a well presented case generally, but I am hoping to get a look at his internal state - the reality he perceives, rather than our perception of him living in ours.

What about art - does he draw anything?

Does he ever talk about what he sees in his dreams or nightmares?
brisbanehomoeopath last decade
Oh I am looking for repeated phrases or words or images, not just everything he says. Themes.

OK that is great. Actually there is something else here that might help - can you tell me what he says when he explains his drawings in detail. Again if you can't remember exactly write it down as he says it.

One of the activities I get children to do in clinic, is to draw while I am talking to the parents, then I have the child explain everything they have drawn - I point to each bit and say 'what is this' and write down every thing they say especially when it is surprising (like they point to a flower and say that is a monster).

So he just sticks to the facts - no imaginary connections for him? Intersting - that actually suggests his potency level may be 30c.

High fever is only a good sign if it is followed by marked improvement. Did that happen?
brisbanehomoeopath last decade
Oh can I get you to do something - can you point to a picture where people have no arms, and ask him about that - not why, just say 'what's this' or 'where are the arms' - try a few questions if it doesn't upset him too much.

What do people look like to you when he draws them that way (apart from people with no arms lol).

I want to be really careful with him considering what has happened before, and I want to be as confident as possible when making a choice of remedy. It is a *really* interesting case though.

On more thing - is it just children he cannot recognize, or adults as well?

How is he at recognizing animals?

Does he ever talk about faces? What does he describe about them? Doe he draw them?
brisbanehomoeopath last decade
Yes his potency level is definitely around 12-30c. I think that whatever remedy I decide on, we will stick to that level. As his ability to express himself expands, we may need to go up in potency.

Potency is more appropriately chosen because of how the disease is expressed in the patient. Whenever you question a patient, they will naturally come back a particular expression point, a way of describing their symptoms that is consistent throughout the case taking.

Under 12c is used when the disease is expressed as common pathology, broad general symptoms that are common to the disease itself or to diseases in general. Such a patient will just talk about the pathology they have, giving nothing but common expected symptoms. They will not be able to give you many sensations, and will remain entirely at a level where the disease itself lies (only talking about the location affected, talking about doctors reports, talking about popular opinions about the disease etc).

12-30c is used when the patient expresses their state in terms of facts - little emotional expression and little imagination. They tell their story with hardly any embellishment. They relate a story that tends to stick pretty much to what happens, in a particular order.

At 12c the person may have trouble describing any sensations they have or even giving much in terms of distinguishing features of their symptoms. They may just give names like 'headache' 'gut pain' 'cramps' and so on.

At 30c they may describe their symptoms more easily, may be able to tell you that their head pain is worse for movement or is better when the sun sets, but they still stick to the facts and go no deeper.

200c is used when the patient expresses their disease in terms of sensitivity, feelings, emotions. Everything comes back to how they feel about the problem, the events in their life. They are very in tune with what they are feeling, they freely associate everything in their life with emotional responses. 'I am moved to tears when...' 'My anger rises...' 'I get so upset when...' 'All I feel is great sadness....'.

1M is used when the patient expresses their disease at the level of imagination. They relate their problems with imaginary stories, analogies, parables. They tend to describe their symptoms in terms of fantasy situations 'as if someone is chasing me' 'as if I am going to be stabbed in the back' 'like God has a grudge against me and is punishing me'. They clearly express a 'delusional' state in which they exist on a daily basis.

10M is used when the patient clearly expresses the Sensation in the case - they speak in the language of the Kingdom, the Group and the direct Source of their remedy. There is often a lot of gestures, lots of strange language that is does not have a direct connection to their problem. The patient is expressing the qualities of the substance from which their remedy is made. 'My head feels like it is made of a green wavy film' 'I jump at him with speed and spear him through the chest with my words' ' I feel like I am losing bits of myself and they are being snatched up by passers by'.

Alright I have spent quite a bit of time going over this. I believe that the remedy we should consider first is Cuprum metallicum.

There are a lot of symptoms in this remedy that are reflected in your son's behaviour.

Probably the main thing that lead me to it was the rigid, controlling, almost ritualistic behaviour. There is a strong need to control everything in Cuprum, and paradoxically a complete lack of control in themselves. Their feelings come out in spasms, just as they experience cramps and spasms in their bodies. Uncontrollable anger is a well known problem for Cuprum children.

These are relevent symptoms taken out of our repertories. I have marked the ones I think are particularly intersting when considering your son's behaviour

Anger, temper tantrums
Answer, aversion to answering questions
Answers incoherently
Antics, plays
Anxiety when alone
Anxiety in bed, in spasms, after fright
*Aversion to change*
Censorious and Critical
Compulsive disorders
Concentration difficult
Conscientious about trifles
Consolation aggravates
Contradict, disposition to
Dictatorial, talks with an air of command
Discouraged easily
*Fear, must tread lightly or he will injure himself*
Fear of accidents
Foolish behaviour in children
Hurry, haste, general; while eating
Kicks, when carried becomes stiff
Laughing hysterical;immoderately
Loquacity; when excited
Mildness alternating with obstinacy
*Mistakes, makes, talking using wrong words*
Obstinate and headstrong, alternating with mildness
Offended easily
Rage with shrieking
Restlessness, tossing about in bed
Restlessness driving him from place to place
*Restlessness must move constantly*
Runs about
Sensitive, oversensitive to pain
Shrieking, screaming, shouting; in children
Talks, wandering
Thoughts vanishing, loss of
Thoughts wandering
Weeping tearful mood after slight emotions
Weeping aloud

*Talks in too loud, inappropriately*

My suggestion would be Cuprum metallicum 30c.

The violence comes out more in his emotional reactions, his screaming, his tantrums - violence doesn't have to be violence to others, but a powerful excessive reaction of any type.

Dissolve 2 pillules into a small bottle with 5 parts water and 1 part alcohol in it. You can use medicinal alcohol or brandy or vodka. Make sure the bottle has a dropper.

Hit the bottle firmly twice against the palm of the hand. Place 1 drop into a full cup of water, stir thoroughly, and give him 1 teaspoon.

Do this once only to begin with while we assess his response.
