Homeopathic treatment of autism by children in a psychosocial care center (Gosik, DF02/01)
Several hypotheses concerning causes of autism have been put forward, which include among others, the possible structural or biochemical changes in certain brain areas, genetic disorders and enzyme deficiencies, responsible for the retention of heavy metals and asymptomatic food intolerances. In the same manner the conclused therapeutic strategies are likewise diverse.
We believe that the Chronic Disease Theory of Hahnemann, together with the updates made by Carillo, provide the elements for the understanding of the pathophysiology of this disturbance. This understanding brought up the possibility to give rise to a protocol, that has been applied by the ABRAH under the supervision and coordination of Prof. Carillo himself.
More specifically, the protocol has been developed at the Hospital of the Municipal Servers of São Paulo partnered with the Federal Fluminense University since 2008 and the homeopathic and pediatric care-unit in the: “Children Psychosocial Care Center” (CAPSi) of Taboão da Serra, which encounters children and adolescents, aging from 2 to 19 years, with severe and persistent psychical disorders, mainly diagnosed as autism.
The CAPSi attends 195 patients of which 150 have the diagnosis of autism with various levels of instances from the classic (non-verbal, echolalia, verbal high-functioning) up to the atypical. Of these, 60 patients received exclusive homeopathic treatment and 90 patients in combination with psychiatric medications.
In this study, we present some of the results applying this approach.
Tips and tricks – Treatment of premature infants in an intensive care unit/neonatology with the aid of homeopathy to prosper vitality and survivability (Ivanis, DF02/02)
This presentation gives insight into the approach and challenge (lessons learned), dealing with the treatment of premature babies at the intensive care unit, e. g. birth of twins in pregnancy week 26, (both under 1.000 g), and birth of a baby in pregnancy week 29, with cerebral hemorrhage grade 4 (of 5), and about difficulties which homeopathic practitioners can face in the environment of neonatology.
Lessons learned – targeting therapy (e. g. supportive thriving therapy. supportive immune system therapy), symptomatic therapy, difficulties regarding application of globuli in a very high hygiene environment of premature babies. And last but not least the question, when the treatment runs over the mother’s milk, when we treat the mother with remedies as Hahnemann mentioned in his Organon VI in §286 Ref1 and our experience, if the power of homeopathic remedy in mother’s milk survives the pasteurisation process, prior to application.
Homöopathie in der Allergologie – von den Anfängen bis zur Gegenwart (Lucae, DF02/03)
Fragestellung: Untersuchung der homöopathischen Literatur bezüglich Beschreibung und Behandlung allergischer Erkrankungen mit Vergleich der verschiedenen Behandlungsansätze und Darstellung heutiger Möglichkeiten.
Methodik Sichtung der homöopathischen Literatur, Darstellung von Kasuistiken.
Ergebnis Allergische Symptome sind keineswegs ein Novum der letzten Jahrzehnte. Ein Blick in die Medizingeschichte zeigt, dass bereits im Altertum Symptome eines allergischen Asthmas dokumentiert wurden. Ein Vorläufer des Heuschnupfens, der „rose cold“, wurde im 16. Jahrhundert beschrieben.
Allergic diathesis in the medical practice of a homeopathic pediatrician (Dorsi, DF02/04)
Question: Which role does allergic diathesis play in the pediatric practice and how can it be treated homeopathically? The frequency of atopic eczema, obstructive bronchitis and food allergy within the first year of life, is increasing. The “atopic journey” starts with atopic eczema and ends with asthma
bronchiale. Although 7 “eczema-genes” have been identified, the prognosis for the child is hard to predict.
Methods Phenomenological homeopathy of the Vienna School according to Mathias Dorcsi. facilitates prediction of prognosis. The knowledge of the three diathesis (lymphatic, lithemic, destructive) is essential. In accordance with Samuel Hahnemann and his theory of miasms, Mathias Dorcsi found a correlation between the specific phenomena of a patient and his diathesis. The individual diathesis helps to predict the disposition for illness as well as the potential for regulation. After homeopathic history taking, the aim is to find the best fitting remedy. Clinical examples will be shown, which help to recognize the phenomena and the diathesis. The following remedies are important in the treatment of allergic diathesis: Calcium salts, the nosodes, snake venom and okoubaka.
Results 30 years of experience in this pediatric practice leads to the hypothesis, that the course of an atopic eczema is improved by homeopathic treatment in combination with recommendations concerning nutrition.
Goal for the future Conduction of a prospective outcome study to examine the course of allergy in children treated homeopathically, with or without conventional therapy. Combined with recommendations for nutrition, the aim is to find the best possible therapy for each child.
