Adam's Journey

Homeopathic Healing of Autism

A Loooooooong Awaited Update

Soooooo….

It’s been awhile.  I really suck at this whole blogging thing.  But this time I have a really good excuse.  Nay, I should say I have a super CUTE excuse!!!

INTRODUCING….Jack Oliver James!!

Whoooo's cute?

Whoooo’s cute?

He’s already 5 months old and we think that he’s pretty gosh darn cute.  He was born at the end of June (on the last day of school) so we spent a quiet summer at home adapting to having a baby in the house once again.  Adam had the hardest time adjusting of course.  He is extremely sensitive to people crying so we knew it would be hard on him.  There were some pretty significant meltdowns during those first few weeks.  One time, the baby was crying in the backyard and Adam smashed his noise-blocking headphones on our cement pad.  He just kept picking them up and whipping them at the ground until they were literally in pieces.  I warned him that if he smashed his headphones he wouldn’t be able to use them the next time the baby cried.  “Mommy is not buying you new ones if you break them.”  Lesson learned.  The headphones were destroyed, Adam lost his crutch and had to suffer the consequences.  It turned out for the best.  By the end of summer, Adam became less sensitive to Jack’s crying and noises in general (including the clicking in the oven).

I abandoned the blog just after Adam finished his second clearing of the Ring Worm miasm.  That was back in January/February and we went through an intense period of healing where a lot of behaviours were coming out.  I’m happy to say that the rest of the year has been easy peasey lemon squeezey compared to those days.  Adam went on to clear Medorrhinum and had a CoRe treatment before clearing Carcinosin, Syphilinum and Lyme.  Adam then started a THIRD round of miasms in September.  In this third round, he’s already cleared Psorinum and Malaria and we’re waiting for the Tuberculinum remedies to arrive in the mail any day now.  So, needless to say A LOT has been happening.

Unfortunately, I will not be able to document each healing cycle as accurately as I have been but like Sports Centre, I can give you the highlights. 😉

MEDORRHINUM HEALING REACTION:

  • A couple days into starting his remedies, Adam got a pimply rash on his bum.
  • A couple days AFTER his last remedy, Adam woke up a few hours after going to bed with a tummy ache.  He ended up vomiting three times and then went back to bed and woke up the following morning good as new.  He started covering his ears in his room, complaining of a “ticking” sound.
  • Something was going on with his left ear. He complained about something being wrong with his ear but he didn’t use the words “hurt” or “pain.” I offered to put a bandaid on his ear which he proceeded to keep on for 5 days in a row.  When I finally insisted he remove it, he would go through periods of covering his ear with his hand.  He was also covering his ears with both hands while going to bed.  He complained there was a ticking sound in his room.  He also complained of ticking in the oven.  It was impossible for me to use the oven without a major meltdown and necessary intervention (usually playing with the i-Phone in an upstairs bedroom).
  • Started taking off his pants and diapers and peeing on the floors.  Wouldn’t have complete BMs.  He would start one and then stop almost immediately and take off his diaper to be wiped. I don’t know if it’s that he didn’t like feeling dirty in his pants?  After a few days of not having a complete BM, he had a HUGE one.  At this point we decided to do some Hyos powders and it seemed to halt the peeing on the floor but not the BM problem.
  • Increased stimming (jumping all over the furniture, running while shaking his head side-to-side, rocking) and increased echolalia.  Obsessively closing doors.  At this point, we decided it was time for another CoRe.   Adam was starting to get upset with his sister’s sniffling and we were still traumatized by the events of the previous fall when Emersyn’s coughing would make Adam hysterical.
  • After the CoRe, Adam woke up with a croupy sounding cough though it only lasted one day.  For the next couple of weeks, he was going to bed early and had a few episodes of anal itching/cramping at bedtime.  He also developed a circular, red raised rash (about a inch and quarter in diameter) on his upper bum cheek.

MEDORRHINUM (and CoRe) GAINS:

  • Had a sleepover with his aunt and actually slept in a tent with two of his boy cousins.  In the past, Adam would have opted to sleep alone or with his sister.
  • Started watching TV shows that used to terrify him in the past (i.e. Thomas) – say whaaaa???
  • Started answering the phone.  Mind you, he did it a little robotically always saying the same thing “Hello? What’s your name?” (even when he knew it was his dad on the other end).
  • Very playful – asking me to play with him.  Complimenting my tower-buiding skills when we played Angry Birds.  Bringing me “presents” to open (including a booger clutched inside his clamped hands aka – the wrapping paper).
  • Increased language.  Stringing multiple sentences together.
  • Play wrestling with his sister

OK.   So now it’s almost midnight.  Where does the time go??

I’m going to post this blog as is and continue with Part Deux tomorrow.

Parting is such sweet sorrow…yadda, yadda, yadda.
