The nature of autism and the homeopathic approach to it
Autismus: Das homöopathische Procedere
1 Hellenic Association Of Homeopathic Medical Cooperation, Athens, Greece
Autism is the congenital absence of emotions.
The main psychiatric criteria for autism are: complete indifference and non-responsiveness to human contact and relations, lack of emotional expression and voluntary eye contact, mechanical action, behavior and speech, language problems, stereotyped, repetitive and ritualistic patterns of behaviour and body movements, restlessness, grimaces, spinning and swinging, aggression, self injury, aversion to any change, onset before the age of three, coincidence of epilepsy and mental retardation. Autism is considered to be an incurable disorder.
The disease has to be differentiated from mental retardation, congenital deafness, schizophrenia with childhood onset, psychosocial deprivation and the very rare Rett's disorder.
At least a part of the coexisting mental retardation in autism (the part that is not of genetic origin) can be attributed to the indifference to the surrounding world, due to the lack of emotions and the consequent lack of interest.
The correct homeopathic remedy has to cover the core pathology of the disease, which is the congenital absence of emotions. The remedy that covers most of the aspects of this pathology is Hyoscyamus niger, including the aggression and the convulsions. Another remedy that also seems to cover the mental picture of autism as well as the convulsions and aggression is Absinthium.
Bar-c, Verat, Carc, Thuj, Op, Cann-i, Bufo, Cact, Anh, Kali-br and Tub have also been suggested for autistic patients, but they do not seem to correspond to the fundamental pathology of the disorder, they do not cover the lack of emotions.
Remedies like Sepia, Aurum and Phosphoric Acid that are characterized by stillness of the emotions have not yet been proposed for the treatment of autism, none of them is known to correspond to patients born emotionless.
Homeopathy is capable of producing deep curative changes in autistic children within one or two months, as we can see in the video cases.
Autism, lack of emotions, homeopathic efficacy, Hyoscyamus, Absinthium.
