I’m carrying out a series of Vaccine Injury Recovery interviews with parents of patients of mine who regressed into autism very soon or immediately after vaccination.
I want to illustrate the process we go through for homeopathic treatment for recovery after vaccine injury, what the difficulties are and the gains.
Lee Ann brought Taylor to me first for a free 15 min chat in February 2017 with the following issues:
12 year old girl,
Severe non-verbal autism.
Normal development until 1 year, regression after MMR.
ADHD, extreme anxiety, pica [eating inedible things –> has to be supervised continually], OCD.
PANS [Pediatric Acute onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome].
Aggressive whatever her mood.
Classical homeopathy from 4-8 y/o with no change.
Current extreme spike in behaviors with meltdowns that come out of nowhere.
Headbangs, self-harms, takes clothes off, grabs groin area [previously handled and ate feces].
Only relief is Risperidone [a medication not tested or recommended for use in children]. Gaining weight as a side effect.
Sleep has always been a problem. Up 2-3 times/night for extended periods. For this she takes Trazadone.
Intellectual disability with an intellectual age of 3-4 years.
Digestive system is problematic: severe constipation, gas & distension.
Menstrual cycles started March 2017 –> harming self and others has increased.
Our most recent follow-up notes from March 2018 read as follows:
Can handle “no”.
Joyous to teach at school.
Independently asks for what she wants!!! Previously just screamed.
Can repeat what she’s asked to repeat.
More clear speech. Some slurring.
Awesome Bowel movements without magnesium this week!!!
Increased melatonin. No Trazodone.
Weaning off Risperidone [now on 0.25mg]
Sleep is good but some waking between 2-4am.
Toe walking [os] returned.
New symptom – a long shiver [chorea?] started last week. Flickering and rolling eyes and mouth. Gleering entering room still.
No longer using Motrin.
Taylor still has a long way to go. She’s been under treatment for just less than 1 year. Her mental age is still about age 3-4 years and we are hoping that will now improve as she is freed from pain and is able to start communicating and focussing better.
Homeopathic treatment for severe autism such as Taylor shows, in a child of her age, will take a good 2 years of treatment and we are working to regain as much of her future as we can.
