Tourette, AD(H)D and Anxiety Disorder

My son-in-law, 37 old, was diagnosed two years ago. Refused allopathics last years, got a lot of hom. remedies, nosodes of hereditary, embryopathy, vaccination and intestine within 2013. Medorrhinum 200 diminished his restlessness to a bearable level for him and his wife, no more mania or exaltations since Hyoscyamus 200, remaining the following symptoms:

Tourette: Echo- and Palilalia, twitching eyelids, imitates gestures and singing of his mother when together in a crowd, sometimes loud smacking when eating, sniffling mucus back to nose (has flowing sneeze)

Adult AD(H)D at present: short-time memory still very bad in everyday life, keeps only in mind what's important for him. Learns only after a lot of repetitions: orders, dates etc. Forgets time and meetings when slightly distracted. Interrupts people by long monologues (says, he fears that otherwise he would forget what he wants to say), can't be interrupted. Changeable mood: one can't rely on his promises and mutual agreements, very changeable opinions, speaks different about things to different people. Can't apologize, prefers lies/swindles.
Intellectual comprehension excellent, highly focused on studies, learns very quickly, nearly needs only to browse pages. Forgets most of it after study, craves for next one against boredom.
Mistakes in maths like a first-grader. Avoids hand writing, hand writing terrible. Sometimes still murmuring at the end of his sentences. „Doesn't get his teeth apart“.
Always busy, occupied, even when tired, searching for work. All he makes he makes rapid but doesn't demand it from others. Very hasty hand movements, walking normally. Sometimes lets things drop.
Won't be alone in a room or in a neighbour's room while studying, likes noises and presence of his peers around him. Wants to be not alone at all.

Fears: Parents might die from common ailments - crouches whimpering in a corner until „danger“ has gone.
Had Asthma in childhood. In 2013 a slight cold with little cough - feared that Asthma would come back and he had to suffocate. Said, he doesn't fear death but won't die in such a slow, miserable way – with indifference to the further fate of his family, running tears and whimpering. (Mother said that this „hysterics“ happens twice a year.) Consolation makes him feel better.

He has a doctor title and some other degrees but can't apply it professionally because of his disease. Was trained by his parents to be fit for everyday life, and there is still a strong reationship between mother and son (co-dependency?). Sometimes speaks like a little child to her. Lives for some years in his own home with his wife and child. Manages the household nearly alone, cares for the garden and his farm animals. Loves animals very much, he says.

Meaning of his life seems to be studying: Fell in a fury with destruction of furnitures when his wife said that she was pregnant. Didn't want to be father, she would have deceived him (although they had agreed to have a child), a baby would disturb all his study plans. Won't bear responsibility for others. To his mother he said he fears his wife could die at birth. Later on he was very attentive, now he's a loving father, telling everybody in the creche that his child is the most beautiful of all. Some weeks before now: got a rage but without destructing things because the schedule of the train to university changed (longer way now). Never violent against people, sometimes against his beloved animals. Keeps calm and silent to allegations of his wife. A few minutes later he behaves as if nothing had happened.

Studies from evening until midnight and later. Sleep firm until noon but if awoken before his time he's ready to start.

Likes travelling, to be on the road in his rover and being shaken by it.
Can't stand for a longer while, searches for a seat or walks slowly in the room.

Also dominating:
Tidiness: Things have immediately to be put back to its place, have to be cleaned up immediately after use, all has to be „right“. At other times he doesn't bother at all and can be sloppy.
Untidy: Doesn't care for his body (nails cutting, shaving, changing clothing etc.), has to be remembered repeatedly and partly helped.

Only sometimes:
Suspicious: Doctors, medicine, what neighbours say or may speak about him. But can't keep secrets. Generousity alternating with stinginess: Offers to lend money, afterwards complaining that now he has not enough for himself. Envy: Repeatedly tried to play down his wife's profession to a lower degree in the public. Tidyness: Things have immediately to be put back to its place, have to be cleaned up immediately after use, all has to be „right“. At other times he doesn't bother at all and can be sloppy.
Untidy: Doesn't care for his body (nails cutting, shaving, changing clothing etc.), has to be remembered repeatedly and partly helped.

Last remedy was Lycopodium 200 in autumn 2013. It made him suffering from warm rooms and warm weather with little sweat. Feels quickly warm by walking in warm surroundings but likes very hot showers after sleep, then barefoot over icy cold tiles for some minutes. Desires fresh air.
Drinks only cold water (from the faucer) and Coke, sips in large intervals, i.e. nearly thirstless except in sunny weather. Craves for sweets, sugar. Aversion to fat meat, butter and milk, likes jogurt very much.

Has a mild temper with a gentle faint voice.

If of further importance:
Head normal. Face pale except in summer, curly dark brown hair. Body long, thin with a thick belly (since childhood, mother says).
Suffers from chronic runny sneeze - he suspects an allergy to their cats.
Purulent pimples around mouth before hom. treatment – vanished after Lycopodium, now slowly comes back. No warts, liver spots or so.
Digestion ailment 1-2 x p.y. from sea food, meat = vomiting and diarrhea (he's living on a coast, very attentive to fresh and not intoxicated food from the friger)

Childhood: Mother told that he needed 2 years for the first steps and speaking, then in full sentences.
Last three month of pregnancy mother had not enough amniotic fluid and was injected with saline solution. He is said to be born with a wrinkled little head.

I would be very grateful if you could give me an advice which remedy this man needs next.

Who has been in charge of his treatment thus far?

A well trained hom. practioner and good friend of mine who spent hours after hours for this case and then found the mentioned remedies by MORA ( electronic acupuncture). Disadvantage of this method: very difficult or impossible to find the constitutional remedy.

hi, dear friends of homeopathy & dear Simone,

Want to tell u that my son-in-law made a great step to the better within last weeks.
After all his symptoms came back (although taken a lot of nosodes too)and mind worsened dramatically we couldn't find a helpful practioneer for continuing treatment. Always seaching in the internet I discovered MD Heiner Frei/Switzerland (heinerfrei.ch) who - meanwhile - is famous for children's ADHD-treatment in the Western area. He's a pediatrician and can't accept new patients (adult patients not at all), so I had to study his method. Frei's et al. treatment is called polarity analysis based on Boenninghausen's therapeutic pocket book (new edition of 2000 & later). By this I came to IODUM and gave it to my son-in-law, initial potency C 200 as Frei advises in his books (1M and higher may follow or another remedy).

I didn't consider his special symptoms of ADHD bc he's a multimorbid patient (heat reminding me to male climacteric, existing 1/2 yr, chronic cold since 2 yrs, anxiety (since ?), Tourette (since ?), mental & psychical problems & ADHD from childhood). Mostly adults are suffering from more than 1 disease, so last occuring 1-4 existing diseases have to be treated first, by this ADHD getting already less(removing layers acc to Hering's rules). If there rests only or nearly only ADHD, do treat it. It's the layers making treatment of children's ADHD much easier than that of adults.

As always in homeopathy: correct treatment depends on the reliability of the symptoms the patient or his peers are giving.

For studying & applying this method, MD Frei's books are still very important for me, they are also published in English. Excerpts from his books see books.google. Questionnaires for the patient's history for free on his website (also in English).
