Therapy for ASD

autism image smallIt is devastating for parents when they receive a diagnosis of autism for their child.

If this has happened to you or your loved ones, take a moment to familiarize yourself with what homeopathy has to offer. It is an ideal way forward for super sensitive individuals as there are no side effects and remedies are highly diluted yet deep acting. More importantly, it works!

Because of the unique way homeopathic remedies work in the body, autism can be greatly helped with classical homeopathy. The correct remedy can enable the autistic child to metabolize nutrients their brains so desperately need as well as detoxify their systems.

Shahin Afnan, CCH,CCT. is a certified CEASE therapist and currently treats children with ASD using CEASE therapy protocols where indicated.

Not all children with autistic spectrum disorders need CEASE therapy. Some do very well with classical homeopathy alone where the child’s symptoms are matched to the correct single remedy. About 50% of children with ASD have responded to CEASE beyond what can be achieved with classical homeopathy alone.

CEASE is a three pronged approach and is used when no further progress is being made with a single homeopathic remedy.

First of all dietary supplements are used to support the body and enhance brain function.

Secondly, following a detailed consultation including a health history of the parents as well as the child, a constitutional homeopathic medicine is selected to support the child mentally and emotionally as well as physically during the clearing process.

Thirdly, a homeopathic clearing medicine is selected which addresses the specific toxins your child has been unable to excrete . This remedy is given according to a precise protocol and stimulates the cells to release toxins which are preventing progress. In this way the child is systematically cleared and able to make further functional gains.

We appreciate that children can not usually manage a lengthy interview and we therefore split the initial consultation into two parts. The first consultation is with the caregiver and will take approximately one hour. The second consultation is with the caregiver and child and is an opportunity for the homeopath to observe the child, obtain a baseline of their symptoms and finalize a remedy selection.

We follow up approximately monthly in the beginning to make any adjustments necessary and ensure your child continues to receive the maximum benefit from their regime.

Some Testimonials

‘I am so AMAZED at the turnaround with this remedy, I could cry. Rigidity, rage, and tantrums are almost non-existent. Anxiety is still holding strong but it’s much less than before. She’s so pleasant to be around and so much more easy going.’

‘We started seeing Shahin, when my daughter was about 20. We have worked on treating her apraxia with many alternative treatments over the years. When we finally opted for homeopathy, I found Shahin. She is kind, and knowledgeable. Shahin puts my daughter at ease. Our daughter struggles with any change in her routine and has some anxiety about being in public. I will never forget that one day after her first remedy, she made changes easily. I was stunned. Homeopathy just makes it easier for her to cope.  She has a job she loves, and is able to participate in many things. I never thought I would see the day she could be so fulfilled. I have recommended Shahin to many people because she’s awesome. Totally worth a try.
