A Glimpse into Autism Materia Medica

A Glimpse into Autism Materia Medica

Materia Medica Autism by Jerry Kantor, Chapter of The Autism Reversal Toolbox book

Published in the Homeo Magazine Dynamics March 31, 2017

Sine Wave Materia Medica

This is a chapter of the book “Autism Reversal Toolbox”, By Jerry Kantor.

Available at www.merlijnboekhandel.nl and in our website store.

The full range of existing materia medica can and will come into play during the treatment of ASD or related autoimmune conditions. The following compilation of suggested remedies is divided among remedies I have found possessing unusual and specific relevance to ASD and other remedies whose situational relevance is generally. The practitioner is urged to make a full an investigation of any remedy under consideration. A study of the Unda system with its 76 remedies is recommended, as only basic suggestions are offered here.

Parents are kindly reminded not to try to treat their children based on the remedy descriptions here or in other books about homeopathy for autism. A professional is needed not only to see the remedy state clearly, but more importantly to manage the roller coaster ride of ups and downs that can ensue from a remedy.

PREGNANCY RELATED ASD ISSUES

For child or both mother and child when a pregnancy ailment and ASD is are associated.

When the mother has suffered an injurious blow to the womb

Bellis Perennis

The mother may harbor a suspicion that nothing has ever been the same since.

After-effects of Common Infection

Streptococcinum (including PANDA) High strung mother, perhaps prone to weeping; where there has been a history of Strep infection. Slow growth in the child, also with tendency to relapse.

Staphylococcinum

The staphylococcus bacterium thrives in circumstances of debility from overwork, anxiety, poor nutrition, constitutional weakness. Affinity for the endocardium.

All Unda remedies below are only available in the United States, not in Europe (editor).

Unda #1

Basic drainage, general anti-toxic that reboots hepatic function. Strong effect on the liver, kidneys and gall bladder (Achillea millefolium, Arctostaphylos uva-ursi, Lyc, Valeriana, Angelica archangelica, Equisetum arvense, Arg met).

Unda #243

Like #1 but acts as a functional remedy with specific indication for the hepatic cells. Indispensable (Combretum raimbaultii, Peumus boldus, Cholesterolinum, Lycopodium, Podophylum).

Unda #2

Basic drainage and strengthening of kidney function (both in the allopathic and TCM sense), in relation to toxic accumulation. (Berberis, Thlaspi, Juniperus, Argentum met, Asparagus, Genista tinctoria, Petroselinum sativum).

Anergic Diathesis, Copper-Gold-Silver (CU-AU-AG).

Oligotherapy remedy (6X or 3C solutions not potentized). Where there is a history of recurrent and/or debilitating infections.

Polychrest

Pyrogenium

Septic states or where has been a history of sepsis.

Caesarian section and other traumas of delivery

Liliflorae (remedy family described in Sankaran’s An Insight into Plants)

The following remedies exhibiting jauntiness and loquacity may reflect

the issue of “Forced out vs. Held in” with regard to forcibly early or restrained birth. They are worth considering in the related ASD case:

Crocus sativa

Veratrum album

Veratrum viride

Paris quadrifolia

Spurge/Rubber/Oils (Euphorbiaceae described by Sankaran, and Petroleum as discussed by Mangiolavari)

As words commonly associated with these remedies include “constricted,” “hidebound,” “drawn backwards” their associated theme of “Compressed vs. Released” should be considered where delivery has been compromised. May manifest as the clinginess vs. bolting polarity:

Croton Tiglium

Hura Brasiliensis

Latex

Mancinella

Petroleum

Glandular Imbalance

According to Sensation Method findings, the thematic essence of endocrine glands has to do with high-level fulfillment of one’s duty, relevant when the theme emerges in the intake with regard to the child’s parents or familial Julian’s formula for prescribing endocrine sarcodes for glandular problems at specific potencies:

3C or 5C to encourage functioning of a gland

7C to modulate / regulate a gland function

9C to suppress/inhibit gland functioning.

Unda remedies

Worth studying are the clinical approaches to addressing glandular imbalance within the Unda system. The two etiologies with the greatest relevance to ASD are

The Tubercular and degenerative etiology (paralleling developmental endocrinology and in accordance with the above, sensation method’s insight, culminating in high level functioning) which suggests Unda numbers 14, 16, 21, 48 and 1000

Dysfunction within the diencephalon-cortico-gonadic axis suggesting Unda numbers 1, 10 and 245..

Scrophularia nodosa

Enlarged glands. Ailments of the breast. Eczema. Often after grief.

Polychrests:

Calc Fluor

Financial stresses for the parents or within the familial legacy. The conjunction of Calc’s concern with bone stability and fluoride’s sudden instability expresses itself in glandular dysfunction promptiung induration (excessive bone hardness and growth) but also brittleness.

Leucorrhea

Kreosote

Where the mother has had a longstanding leucorrhea and the child is slow growing and poorly developed.

Magnesium Sulphurica

Languor and staggering gait in the child. Leuccorhea or eclampsia in the mother. Consider especially when there is an inequality of existing between wife and husband. I have seen this expressed when one spouse shoulders disproportionate breadwinning responsibility and, where the wife is physically more imposing than the husband.

Depression During Pregnancy

Unda #9

Basic drainage, all ailments of the respiratory tract. Assists the lungs both in the allopathic and TCM sense wherefore addresses grief from a drainage standpoint. On a moment to moment basis the lungs provide the interplay between the external and internal terrains. Inability to resolve centeredness vs disorientation in the dimension of smell. (Adianatum capillus veneris, Glycyrrhiza glabra, Inula helenium, Tussilago farfara, Arg met, Drosera, Grindelia, Potentilla tormentilla, Cuprum).

Polychrests

Cimicifuga

Post-partum depression, feeling of black cloud hovering. Awareness that motherhood poses severe constraint on her independence.

Sepia

History of resentment and disappointment. Lack of clarity as to her psycho-sexual position in life. Delusion that hope is toxic. Generally stagnated condition (Liver Constraint picture in TCM).

Gelsemium

Weary, faint-hearted pursuant to a setback. General heaviness and prostration.

Nitric Acidum

Fault-finding, exacting, glass is half-full. Cannot forget or easily forgives wrongs.

Natrum Muriaticum

Self-contained, averse to consolation. Desires intimacy but keeps it at arm’s length. Delusion it is dangerous to express grief. Overly responsible.

DYSFUNCTIONAL BONDING

Due to their relevance to the neonate and infant, the following remedies are appropriate for use as background constitutional remedies, administered on a weekly basis during toxic clearing. The remedy chosen for weekly use need not be limited to just these however.

Good sources for learning about the Matridonal remedies (which include the first six remedies listed below) are Melissa Assilem, The Gifts of the Mother ? Narayana Publications, Kandern, Germany 2009 and Alize Timmernam [“The Love and Care Hormone,” Spectrum of Homeopathy, Perinatal edition, 1/1/2013 but JK also has an as yet unpublished ms of hers]. Keep alert, as new sarcodes continue to be introduced.

Placenta

In the child, abdominal, pain that may manifest with reflux, belching, constipation and diarrhea. Depression. Diarrhea. Mother and child: prostration, restlessness and apathy. Poor impulse control. As the organ remains much misunderstood but manifesting global functions in relation to all systems, applies to many conditions where any indication of placental dysfunction. See the discussion of autoimmunity on page 000.

Lac Humanum

Poor ability to maintain good relationships. Tendency to addiction. Lack of or dysfunctional history of breast feeding. Compare with Lac Maternum, below (where the issue of incomplete incarnation evidence in daydreaming and lack of joy is stronger).

Lac Maternum

As above though utilizing the milk of nine mothers. Enlarged issue of incomplete incarnation.

Umbilicus

Unusual degree of innocence. Respiratory issues, distorted sense of time.

Vernix Caseosa

Made from infant sebum, wherefore the remedy state reflects excessive vulnerability due to inadequate boundaries.

Anacardium

Inner conflict theme wherefore alternately hard, unfeeling, cruel on the one hand, and helpless on the other. Ameliorated by rapid eating, stuffs himself.

Rhus Tox

Connection to past trauma cannot be let go. Like scar tissue, the mindset lacks elasticity.

Hydrogenium

The opposite end of the pendulum from Lac Maternum: the client is so fully incarnated that the feeling of oneness with the universe is socially distancing.

Saccharum Officinalum

Distractability, overly-affectionate, general dryness, indecision, fruitless search for

love because incapable of self-love.

Mother-child bond

Cadmium Muriaticum

Powerless, overly dramatic due to poor relation to mother.

Where due to the amorphous influence of the father, a sense of identity and personal value are undermined.

Zincum

When the father is emotionally remote. Perseveration, over-sensitivity, mental fatigue are evident.

Yersinium pestis

Nosde from the bubonic plague. Similar to Ammonium Carb re sabotaging of a relationship with a father or authority figure after an initial idolization of that person.

DEVELOPMENTAL DELAY

Posterior Pituitary (the gland that secretes Oxytocin)

Has been indicated the most, predominantly in children when maturational markers or behavioral issues have been delayed and has been especially useful as an intercurrent in cases of bedwetting.

Unda # 202 and #700

Peripheral drainage remedies for when the situation is profoundly syphilitic. Each would best be combined with a general drainage and a functional remedy.

FAILURE TO THRIVE

Abrotanum

Scrophulariaceae

Biofilm gut issue: a slimy community of micro-organisms, attached to a wet or moist surface that include bacteria, yeasts, algae and fungi only microscopically visible. In my experience, detoxification of the biofilm addresses failure to thrive and promotes metabolism. Expressed in accordance with Sankaran’s attachment vs non-attachment theme: General sensation: sharp, sticking, stinging, stitching.

Key remedies in the family:

Digitalis

Consider for ASD in sycotic families, delusion of criminality.

SOLIPSISTIC STATES (living in one’s own world)

Gases

We differentiate between the passive and dynamically presenting solipsistic states

Inert, non-reactive pole

Helium

Entirely self-sufficient. Does not want stimulus. As if content to remain in the womb.

Hydrogenium

Passively self-sufficient with no need of stimulus because feels already connected to all things. A state of oneness.

Ozone

As the gas protects the planet, the issue of being hermetically sealed, protected. Inner gates leading to other inner gates so as to fragment the personality.

Hyper-reactive pole

Bromium

Dynamic and self-referential guilt. As in “I am guilty because I am guilty”. As sensitive to karmic issues as Phosphorus is to impressions. In the ASD presentation it as though a past life’s theme “hangover” is choreographing emotional reactivity.

HYPERSENSITIVITY (to the extent this is due to autophagy, the biotherapeutic drainage method’s effectiveness would appear to reenergize synaptic pruning.

Asarum

Emotionally sensitive, great sensitivity to sound. Vacancy of thought differentiates it from the spiders.

Regression

(Note that regressive tendencies occurring during biotherapeutic drainage or pharmaceutical clearing may not need to be treated with a remedy. Instead, let the drainage run its course and the regression should resolve on its own, leaving the child in an improved state. If regressive tendencies remain when the drainage phase is completed, use remedies such as the following.

Baryta Carb

Babyish, desire to hide, craving approval, developmental delays.

Bismuth

“Velcro” child, clinging.

Viscum Album

Regression due to past lives or karmic influence (Meditative Provings insight).

Karma

(miasms in the perhaps, metaphorical sense)

Karma is understood here in terms of concepts recurring throughout this book. These include memories, behaviors, creative energies, and the impact of traumatic acts consolidated within Kidney Yang or the dimension of Hearing; the transmission of Hearing consolidated material to the Hun or ethereal soul (equivalent to Jung’s Collective Unconscious) from where it becomes accessible to a newborn soul; family legacies of illness, addictiveness or specific talents (that also fall under the rubric of a miasm). Where karmic influence in and of itself is thought to have an especial presence, remedies such as the following may be interpolated:

Bromium

What Phosphorus is to external impressions, Bromium is to the presence of karmic influence. Utilize when a child sees ghosts or spiritual entities; where there is a sense of the primacy of rebirth as a past or current issue.

Meditative proving remedies (Madeline Evans)

Note: In addition to the ones below, all remedies in this two-volume set merit study. Evans’s analyses emphasize effects on or reflections of the chakra system. Useful intercurrently in the Sine Wave method. Before using, study each in depth.

Ayahuasca

Releases darkness from ancestral influence, fear, grief, hatred. Where the autism has an out-of-body quality. Influence on the Heart, Thymus and Brow chakras.

Bay Leaf

Highly syphilitic remedy due to its reflection of hidden states, deceptiveness, emotional closedness; as opposed to Merc., however with mental slowness and confusion. Influence on the Brow and Solar Plexus chakras.

Berlin Wall

Where a legacy of futility, repression, and restriction. Split in the spirit. Powerful energy releasing remedy with regard to entry to a new age. Influences Thymus gland and Heart chakras.

Chalcanthite

Autism with dyslexia; extreme fragility due to legacy of trauma, medication abuse; vagueness of personality, lack of substance. Supports Base chakra.

Orange

Prompts inner stillness. The meditative proving discussion describing promotion to higher levels of spiritual awareness via lighting the way to truth especially among children reflects Swedenborg. Influences the Heart and Brow chakras. Similar to Slate, also worth studying.

Rose Quartz

Where parents maintain the child was reluctant to incarnate; a legacy of non-appreciation and manic-depression. Obsessive thinking. Poor concentration. Opens the heart. Positive influence on all chakras. Can be used in a positive way, to support unconditional love and an open heart chakra in the exhausted parents.

Thymus

Highly karmic remedy, deeply syphilitic. Supports Base, Throat and Heart chakras. Important as it promotes release of many sorts. Underused.

Gem essence remedies

Note: In addition to the two remedies below the other ten jewels described by Peter Tumminello merit close reading. “Soft focus” remedies that — like the meditative provings remedies — have an affinity for karmic issues, sexuality, and creativity. Reflective of spiritual concerns within a family legacy they are useful intercurrently as in the Sine Wave method. Before using, study each in depth.

Lapis Lazuli

Where parents insist the child’s autism represents an inner struggle for meaning, where there is also a need for amusement; when there is a legacy of coldness in the mother.

Pearl

Where there is a legacy of the self having been fragmented or lost due to isolation, panic and fear. Images of darkness prevail.

VANGUARD APPROACH SOFT FOCUS REMEDIES

[with the potential to be universally applicable)

Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF2)

Fibroblast growth factors are derived from molecules used by neurons to communicate with one another. In normal amounts they promote visual acuity and vision repair. When in excess (as in neural overload) cellular signaling breaks down, as in Stage Four homotoxicosis. Barbara Brewitt’s research cited in Patricia Lemer’s Envisioning a Bright Future indicates that low potency remedies made from this sarcode can improve nervous system, immune and organ function.

Glyphosate

Key ingredient in pesticides (discussed under Toxic Burden). Especially where the exposure causes a Never Well Since situation. Remedy to use for detoxification.

Glutaminicum acidum (Glut-ac.)

Remedy used by Reckeweg to improve brain function in impaired children.

Monosodium Glutamate (MSG), Aspartame

Environmentally pervasive excitotoxins discussed within Toxic Burden.

Inflammation and Autoimmunity

Inflammation and Autoimmunity

Jerome Groopman’s article,
“Inflamed, Debate Over the Latest Cure-All Phase”
Misreads Chronic Inflammation’s Genuine Meaning

In his recent article in The New Yorker Magazine, http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2015/11/30/inflamed Dr. Jerome Groopman says:

“For centuries, scientists have debated whether inflammation is good or bad for us. Now we believe that it’s both: too little, and microbes fester and spread in the body, or wounds fail to heal; too much, and nearby healthy tissue can be degraded or destroyed. The fire of inflammation must be tightly controlled—turned on at the right moment and, just as critically, turned off. Lately, however, several lines of research have revealed that low-level inflammation can simmer quietly in the body, in the absence of overt trauma or infection, with profound implications for our health” (italics are mine).

If it is true that scientists endlessly debate the goodness or badness of inflammation common sense may dictate otherwise.

When the vital force is strong an acute illness features a perfectly timed inflammatory response of exactly the right “amount.” Groopman’s understanding of two kinds of inflammation, one too much and the other too little both describe what homeopaths such as myself would ascribe to a chronic illness. In the case of too little inflammation, an underlying psychic issue or overwhelming pathological intrusion stymies and overwhelms the immune system rendering the normally healthful response inadequate to the problem. In that case the remedy chosen must address the underlying mental/emotion problem, not just the physical manifestation. Groopman’s notion of too much inflammation, an immune system that fails to turn itself off represents the chronic condition of autoimmunity, rampant in modern times. In that case addressing why the immune system has become hysterical needs to be addressed.

Groopman’s unwillingness or inability to ask WHY inflammation is quietly simmering in the body in the absence of overt trauma or infection reflects a blind spot in medicine, the connection (actually identity) between chronic inflammation and autoimmune conditions. Rather than asking how best to control inflammation so that the right amount is produced he and his fellow scientists should be asking, “Why is there so much autoimmunity of which chronic inflammation, the body’s battling phantom antagonists is a mere symptom?”

Chronic inflammation of the brain for example, such is seen in conditions like Alzheimers disaease and autism reflect glial tissue overload. A newly emerging concept, glial overload refers to systematic metabolic degeneration leading to a general overheating of the nervous system’s neuroglial cells. This is described as the degeneration phase f(the last phase in a cascade of six) described in the field of homotoxicology..

Glial overload refers to an ongoing neuroinflammatory process that is damaging to the mitochondria (cell powerhouses) in different regions of the brain and activates a special type of glia known as the microglia. Microglia function as macrophages in the brain and spinal cord (like little Pacmen that eat other cells) and thus constitute the first and main form of active immune defense in the central nervous system. So activating the microglia, the brain’s main immune defense cells, begins the process of autoimmunity in the brain that my book, Autism Reversal Toolbox (http://rightwhalepress.com/autism-reversal-toolbox) refers to as the Neural Autoimmune Miasm.

Gut glia can become dysregulated due to toxic overlaoad, but also via genetic and epigenetic causes that prompt gluten sensitivity and celiac disease. As I have written in Autism Reversal Toolbox,

“A developmental explanation is helpful. As we develop from child to adult, our intestines must rise to the challenge of breaking down food so that the immune system can fully mature and the microbiome [i.e. gut flora] can be well balanced.”

The ileocecal valve is the nutritive hinge between the inner and outer universe, just as the lungs are the respiratory hinge between the inner and outer universe.[1] (Traditional Chinese Medicine’s Small Intestine/Heart relationship thus reflects how the intestines augment the sense of self, with the Heart representing one’s soul). That a strong sense of self and confidence among one’s peers reflects Small Intestine/Heart balance is borne out by a recent discovery that the gut’s germs influence our behavior: the behavioral preference of germs in a healthy microbiome is for the host to be socially adept, able to bond with others.[2]

Leaky gut, on the other hand (the breakdown of the mucosal lining), reflects a sense of general danger such as can prompt inflammatory anxiety and the diminished ability to overcome social and other challenges within the sense dimension of Taste.
