1st Appointment:

Before A.N. came to me for homeopathic treatment she’d been to a number of homeopaths:

  • Classical,
  • sequential,
  • Heilkunz [some detox],
  • & hermetic protocol.

She had some relief of OCD but during the Hermetic [Michele Iqbal] protocol she’d become more violent and this had remained since.
In the past year and a half she’d further regressed after ion cleanse foot bath for detox.

She has 1 x Mthfr mutation.  1 working kidney.

Toxic metals are a BIG problem.  Mum is scared to start metal detox.

No steroids.

Needs to detox

  • birth meds,
  • vaccines,
  • antibiotics and
  • metals in particular.
  • She has the high level of yeast you expect with high levels of toxic metals.

Medical History

Amoxicillin antibiotic from birth until 18 months [kidney cyst].

History of repeat ear infections with high fevers, treated with antibiotics.
These infections and the fevers stopped age 2 as the regression started.
No high fevers for 12 years.

Fully vaccinated to age 2.
Autism detected age 18 months.
Regression since age 2:

  • stopped answering name,
  • lost eye contact,
  • lost beginnings of speech.

Diagnosed with ‘non-verbal autism’ age 2.5.

Current Problems

Violence started age 8, worsening with Hermetic protocol ++.

She has hyperactivity.

Receptive language is workable.

She needs 2 aids to manage at school.

Severe constipation since birth.  Will go 1 month without a stool without intervention! [This will make detox really difficult and must be addressed daily during detox.]

Terrible sleep disturbance.  Hyperactive at night.

Has a constant noise tick.

Severe menstrual pains → increased violence.

Won’t keep clothes on.  Undresses in public.  Stips and runs around the house.

Has become very lazy and won’t feed herself.

Sky high toxic metals!  [See chart below].


A.N. cannot detox metals from her body.  You’ll see her total toxic representation is in the 100% percentile.  She is off the chart on at least antimony and lead and has an unprecedented toxic load.

metals hair testing

A.N. Has had no high fevers since very early childhood.  Her immune system is very poor.   She’s moved through ‘level 6’ [a spate of repeat infections] at age two and dropped to lower level 7 or level 8 [no fevers present and definite chronic condition] from that point onward.

Her behaviour calms with Ibuprofen [an anti-inflammatory] indicating her distress and behavioural problems are caused by a high level of brain inflammation.   I’m not convinced she has PANS [an autoimmune disorder of the brain].  I think metal toxicity can account for her problems.

Constipation is associated very strongly with metal toxicity, especially of aluminium and lead and compounds her inability to detox metals.

Where could she get these metals from? 

• Aluminium will have been accumulated from vaccines [probably leading to her regression about age 2] and from aluminium cookware.

• Antimony is used as a fire retardant on baby clothes and furnishings.

• Arsenic is common in rice and gluten-free products made with rice.

• Barium may have come from medical tests.

• Lead is a common toxin from old paints and leaded petrol.

• Mercury is a preservative in some multi-dose vaccines and was used in vaccines until 2000.  It can be accumulated in utero from mothers with mercury fillings. It’s also a pollutant in fish.

Other toxins she has accumulated are as follows: 

• plastics,

• farming chemicals,

• paint/nail varnish chemicals,

• gasoline pollution.

• Mycotoxins.

• Yeast/fungi.

First Prescription

Poly vaccine USA detox.  An 8-week homeopathic detox protocol.  [She was vaccinated in the USA.]  Raising through potencies 30c, 200c, 1M, and 10M.

Helleborus 30c every Saturday.  This is a remedy strongly associated with brain inflammation and was used by the old homeopathic doctors to treat encephalitis and meningitis.  It’s strongest keynote is “DESPAIR”.

Mag phos 200c in a homeopathic solution with 3 succussions for period pain as needed.

autism pans treatment

Helleborus niger.  Highly toxic in its raw state, is a very useful remedy in homeopathic dilution.  It’s the strongest remedy for intense despair and is often indicated for encephalitis.  

Text Update [1 month later]

First high fever since age 2!  [Watch out now as we will expect to see a return of the ear infections.  It is possible she will resolve the ear infections at this point.  If not, we need to treat them homeopathically].

This is a homeopath’s favourite type of response in a child with this level of health.  It shows we’ve already raised her level of health with the first prescription back to level 6.

Follow-up: [1.5 months after first prescription]

First two times she had Helleborus: she seemed to be good that day.  In a good mood.  Now aggravating after doses [stopped Helleborus].

Much calmer.

Less violent.

Seems to want to speak.

Constipated still.


Stop helleborus.  Continue vaccine detox.

Poly bowel nosode 30c for 21 days.

Next detox = poly antibiotics 30c through 10M, 8-week homeopathic detox therapy protocol.

Follow-up: [2 months later]

>>> improved constipation after bowel nosode.  [*Returned 2 weeks after stopping poly bowel].

Now keeps her clothes on.

>>> improved violence +++

Less crying and screaming.

No menstrual pain x 2 cycles.

Sleeping from 1 am.

More connected to sister.  Kissing her.

More independent: dressing self, putting clothes in the washing basket.

Throat clearing tick has gone.

Antibiotic detox → hyper, OCD behviour returning. Undressing.  Screaming and running. Now decreasing after 200c.   [Added adrenal support].


Mercury 200c am and pm for 1 day.

Continue poly antibiotics detox.

Strep combo 30c single daily dose during PANDAS flares.

Tonsillitis & “PANDAS”

This PANDAS Treatment article was first published at

When PANDAS Treatment Begins

*Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Strep*

pandas treatment

New Patient: A.G. Female. Age 5. UK.
A.G. is having recurrent tonsillitis and the start of PANDAS. She has permanently inflamed glands in the throat. Each episode is getting worse and antibiotics haven’t helped.  She’s beginning to exhibit ‘PANDAS’ like behavioural changes during these episodes: loss of eye contact, emotional fragility [anxiety and meltdowns] & uncharacteristic defiance. Between episodes, she’s a mild-mannered & timid child. She’s popular with children at school and has great conflict resolution skills.  

Additional issues: 
For 6 months she’s had a bad infection of molluscum contagiosum around the legs and genitalia. She has an allergic rash that comes with fruit from the latex family [pineapple, kiwi, mangoes, strawberries, etc]. She is tall, pale, thin and timid. Her molluscum eruptions don’t heal well.  
molluscum contagiosum treatment
Toxicology/Medical history:
She’s had steroid creams, full vaccines schedule and one course of antibiotics.
She is the eldest of three and the family no-longer vaccinates since her next brother [another patient of mine] was vaccine injured and regressed into autism.
Her brother’s experience indicates the family may have a genetic weakness for poor detoxing of toxic metals.
We don’t know why boys exhibit autism at a far greater rate than girls.
If A.G. was male she may well have been autistic too. Girls seem to be protected to some extent.   The youngest brother is unvaccinated and extremely healthy so far.  

Vaccines contain a detergent called polysorbate 80 which makes the blood-brain barrier permeable giving aluminium and other vaccine contents access to the brain. It is probable that PANDAS is so common among vaccine injured, autistic children because the blood-brain barrier is compromised and the immune system is very weak. I suspect this is the case for A.G. thought she is not on the autistic spectrum.   

First Prescription:   

Silica 200c, single dose weekly for 4 weeks.
Poly steriod detox, according to the 8 weeks Homeopathic Detox Therapy [HDT] “4×4” protocol, raising through the following potencies: 30c, 200C, 1M & 10M.
Poly bowel nosode 30c, single dose for 21 days: gut healing after antibiotics.

In treating her [including her PANDAS] I’m looking for a remedy that fits her well.  She fits silica nicely. It’s also one of the remedies indicated for molluscum. 

pandas treatment
I’ll be sure to post updates to let you know how she does.  I’ve worked very successfully with children with enlarged glands and recurrent tonsillitis [as well as with children diagnosed with PANDAS], so I’m hopeful she’ll do well.  


PANDAS is a disorder of the PANS group [PANS = Pediatric Acute-onset Neuropsychiatric Syndromes]. In children with PANDAS diagnosis, strep exposure triggers a misdirected immune response causing brain inflammation that leads to intermittent episodes of OCD, anxiety, tics, personality changes, decline in math and handwriting abilities, sensory sensitivities, restrictive eating, and more [all common symptoms in autism spectrum disorder also].    
pandas treatment
As you’ll see below, other viruses, bacteria, and non-infectious triggers can cause PAN syndromes including mycoplasma, Lyme, & varicella.

The Future

PANS & PANDAS can be resolved well with homeopathy.  Antibiotic and steroid blast treatments are conventionally used and can have some short-term benefits, along with side effects.   Diagnosis isn’t necessary for the success of homeopathic treatment as we use the symptoms to find a fitting remedy.  However, it is useful for homeopaths to be aware of PANS conditions and their possible triggers as they can do some work toward supporting the child with homeopathic nosodes alongside treatment to raise the immune system.

Homeopathic Metal Detox for GREAT RESULTS in Autism.

Is homeopathic metal detox for Autism safe and easy?

Metal toxicity can be a big thing in autism and we see great improvements when we do homeopathic metal detox for autism.

Because metal chelation methods can deplete the function of organs like the liver and adrenal glands & can deplete essential metals along with removing toxic metals, my preferred method is homeopathic detox therapy.

Advantages of Homeopathic Metal Detox

Homeopathy harnesses the body’s inbuilt detox processes and supports the organs at the same time. Giving the most needed homeopathic remedy alongside detox is a great support.  We also give remedies that directly support the liver and adrenal glands.

Chelation advocates like Andy Cutler have their concerns about homeopathic metal detox causing aggravations and homeopaths have their concerns about chelation causing aggravations and depletion of organs, so it is hard to see from general hearsay what works and what is safe.

During chelation, you can see some aggravation as toxic metals are moved into the bloodstream from tissues.  If there is liver weakness, constipation or weakness of the adrenal system these metals can clear too slowly.  There are dietary and supplemental supports that need to be in place to protect the person during chelation.

Supports for Homeopathic Metal Detox

There are some supports and provisions you have to have in place to make homeopathic metal detox comfortable also.
We don’t start homeopathic metal detox [or chelation for that matter!] when there is liver weakness or adrenal fatigue.  We work to rebuild the liver and adrenal system first.
Also, we tend to detox substances like steroids and vaccines long before we start homeopathic metal detox.
We must ensure there is no constipation and that the bowels are moving regularly so that toxic metals can be eliminated faster.

  • Epsom’s salts baths and some vitamin supplements are a great support.  I usually recommend baths 4 times a week and footbaths if there is no bath in the house.
  • Vitamin C,
  • zinc,
  • selenium and
  • magnesium are all good supplemental supports.

A lovely thing about homeopathic metal detox is that you can slow it down or speed it up as needed, depending on how well the child is eliminating toxic metals from his body.

We see wonderful outcomes from homeopathic metal detox.
Here is an example:

Meet Shash: Metal Detox Patient.

Shash has been coming to see me for about a year now.   We’ve helped him detox steroids and vaccines and seen some great gains but some really great gains [as expected] have come from homeopathic metal detox.  We’ve done a poly metals detox with him and we are repeating the higher potencies for a third time to attain even more gains.  We’ll stop repeating it when he stops responding with positive gains after the detox.
His parents’ notes today read:

He talks so much and his conversation is an exchange, using more words, trying to be funny. Definitely increased awareness, like checking counter isn’t wet when putting something down.

He did have some accentuated symptoms [‘aggravation’] during the lower potency detox stages.  These took the form of an accentuation of some of his symptoms [self-stimulating, obsessional behaviours, some aggression].
Here’s what you can expect to see some of during a homeopathic detox.

The higher potency detoxes are uneventful but after he finishes the remedies we see lovely gains in expressive language, executive skills, far less aggression and more cooperation, & excellent progress in school. He has developed a great sense of humour and is lucid in his thinking.  He’s even developed some age-appropriate reluctance to do chores 😀

Shash still has some way to go.  We’ll continue with metal detoxing until we are satisfied that his repetitive watching of the same part of a tv program stops and when his reading comprehension improves.  Right now, he is still a bit literal and struggles to use his imagination.  He also has some anxiety about going to school, being late for the bus, etc.

arsenic detox rice

Arsenic detox: Obesity may not be the biggest issue with Rice.

I’m looking to talk to you about arsenic detox and where arsenic toxicity might be coming in from.

I was busy writing a reply to this steemit  post: by @mgibson, but it got a bit too long and involved.  So, rather than dumping it in his replies, I turned it into a blog. [You can find and upvote my version of it here … it is the same as this article.]

Beyond the glycemic index issues around weight gain with rice I want to let people know there are arsenic toxicity issues and how to avoid them and still eat rice.
I read that we sometimes will make fat cells to lock away toxic substances and that it is very difficult to get your body to liberate fat before detoxing those substances as your body will hold on to that fat to keep the toxins locked away.  Maybe the detoxifying action of drinking lots of water is behind the recommendation to drink to encourage fat loss, but I suspect there will be other more complex metabolic processes involved also.

I notice a pattern in my daily practice as a homeopath treating autistic children: very high rates of arsenic in their hair tests when they come from an ethnic group from the Indian subcontinent.  This is the case even when they were born and live in the UK and the USA.
I asked my husband about this. Was it in well water?  Was it transferred down from mother to child because I was seeing high levels of arsenic in children who were born in the USA who hadn’t drunk arsenic contaminated water?
He said it is likely to be from a diet rich in rice grown in arsenic-rich soils and directed me to this article

credit: The Independent.

Recommendations for avoiding arsenic from rice consumption:

Sourcing rice from regions with lower grain inorganic arsenic concentrations – for example, basmati rice is two to three-fold lower in inorganic arsenic than rice from the European Union or from the US. Cooking rice in a large excess of water also helps to remove inorganic arsenic. link.

Need an Arsenic Detox?

There are quite a few ways to detox arsenic.  One of the gentlest and most effective is through homeopathic detox.  [This is something I need to do regularly with patients]. Homeopathic detox is not without its challenges and it is good to be taking lots of vitamin c, and daily recommended doses of zinc, magnesium and selenium to support detox.
There are also other ways involving chelation, but they can be pretty heavy on the adrenal system and organs.  Andy Cutler talks lots about this method. Plenty of info on google.
