My last blog was all about my story with ASD but I think what you really want to know is how I can help your child. That's what I would want to know! Straight up, I don't believe ASD is something to be fixed or altered. I do believe it's a gift but gifts can come with all kinds of baggage and conditions. This is no different. It's the baggage I'm interested in shifting.
My practice uses homeopathy and nutrition to support adults and children through a myriad of issues. You don't need a diagnosis to see me. I work on the big picture regardless of what diagnosis people come with. A diagnosis might help by leading my questions, giving me an idea of what symptoms to ask about or even give me a little insight into what you're going through but it doesn't enter my prescribing. I prescribe on the person, on the bigger picture and the presenting symptoms.
For ASD it works like this. I know ASD kids may have sensory issues, anxiety, stimming, difficulty communicating and making eye contact. They may feel better for having a heavy weight on them, they might prefer certain foods or textures. Sometimes they are fixated on certain things. Most likely there is gut issues. But because every single ASD child or adult presents so differently (just like neurotypical people) I treat them like an individual and look for the patterns indicating certain remedies.
The aim is to make life easier, calmer and improve quality of life. Isn't that what we all want?
In short, I treat clients with ASD exactly the same as all my others- as individuals!
Lets look at the most common questions I get asked!
Q. Can homeopathy cure ASD?
This blog is probably a little less warm and fuzzy than my normal stuff. I'm still warm and fuzzy (promise) but this demanded a different tone.
Know that I am here, ready to work with you and your family when the time is right. It would be an honour and a privileged to be part of the team you choose to support your child.
With love in my heart and a mind wide open I wish you peace.
