Nathan’s regression into Autism began after age 2 1/2. Along with cognitive regression (loss of attention, speech and ability to sing, excessive mouthing of objects, etc) were physical/motor regression (lost of ability to play with a guitar and doodle with a pen, healthy daily bowels became chronic constipation, etc).
While Son-Rise has helped tremendously with social skills, I was hoping for more on the physical front. Yes, Nathan has cerebral palsy (inability to move his lower limbs) but there must be answers to his physical/motor regression. Thankfully, I’m noticing that homeopathy, which we have started fairly recently, has been helping with motor/cognitive skills.
Since his regression, Nathan has refused to pick up a pencil or any tools. All toys went straight into his mouth until he was about 6 years old: But before his regression, at age 2 1/2, Nathan was able to doodle and fill a page with colors.
Today, in his Son-Rise Playroom, I decided to go for the felt pens, even if he has rejected it so many times in the past. To my surprise, he was willing to fill a page with colors again and even smiled as I sang while he doodled.
Praise God for the gift of healing!
In the photo: tried my best to capture him and his masterpiece!
A few months into homeopathy, I celebrated that fact Nathan made more detailed sentences. Like, “Open the key door bathroom please.” That’s his short cut for “Open the bathroom door with a key please.” Or he would request “I want to listen to Jump Around (his Favourite song) on the brown iphone, blue speaker.”
Today, about 6months into homeopathy, I realise how much more complex his sentences are becoming. He says, “Open the key door bathroom please. I want to wash my hands.” Two sentences! Yippee!
I’ve also noticed he responds faster, he is more present and can handle 2 simultaneous events, like throw a banana peel while holding/eating the banana at the same time. Sounds simple, but not too long ago, the only way to get him to listen and follow, was if I waited for him to finish the banana first, then request to throw the peel. A simultaneous request would fall of deaf ears and nothing would get done. In fact, Nathan couldn’t even have 2 items in his hands. He would have to put down the second item so he could eat the banana on his other hand.
His homeopath and I have felt that Nathan has “seizures”. “Seizures” big to be seen as jerks followed by few seconds of feeling lost, but “small” such that neurologists saw spikes in his brain waves (EEG) but debated on whether or not to medicate.
Through the years, those jerks became more frequent. The lost attention span became longer and longer. That coincided with Nathan’s regression into autism. It has always been at the back of my head.
Fast forward to today…This time we tried a homeopathic remedy that helps with seizures and I’m seeing these good results.
I’m so glad the homeopath has answers for me. When the experts dismissed my instinct about those seizure-like jerks and reinforced the conventional notion that nothing can be done about the life-long condition, autism….I just had to keep searching. I’m happy that the autism community led me to homeopathy.
I’m praying that God continues to guide our path towards healing and gives us the wisdom to identify the right remedies for Nathan.
Just stepped out of the osteopath’s clinic.
Nathan was throwing a hair-pulling (almost head-banging…if I let him) tantrum before we arrived at the clinic. He drank a homeopathic remedy in the morning and that thunder storm seems to need to happen before we see the good stuff.
Anyways, we were early at the clinic, so I was trying my best to manage his aggravation with squeeze hugs…but to no avail.
About 10 minutes and many patient stares, some of which were friendly understanding smiles, Nathan finally got into his osteopath’s table. Almost as soon as she puts her hands on Nathan to make adjustments, he settles down 😄
Now I’m in my way home with a happy boy next to me! Loving alternative therapies!
Praise God for our healing journey!
My consultation with my homeopathic doctor:
Dr: Did you give Nathan the MMR (Measles Mumps and Rubella).
Me: In Japan they give MR so I went looking for the separate M (Mumps). Is it helpful that it’s separated like what they do in Japan?
Dr: I think the measles vaccine in itself is an issue. Did your give chickenpox vaccine?
Me: Yes. I didn’t know that had issues.
Dr: I have doubts on that one. Did you give the flu vaccine?
Me: Yes, twice…you can shoot me now!
Dr: (smiles) it’s ok you didn’t know back then.
We’re going to undo Nathan’s #VaccineInjury that caused #RegressiveAutism.
While Nathan was talking in sentences at age 2, he lost all his words by age 4.
It’s only been a month with few homeopathic remedies and it’s amazing how I can feel old circuits waking up. Like Nathan recalled all the signs for banana, water, milk, bread, monkey, rhino, giraffe…stuff I taught him when he was a toddler! He has also started to make spontaneous comments… something he was already doing at age 2 before he regressed into autism and lost all his speech.
