What is the Meaning of Autism and Why is It Suddenly So Prevalent?

I recall back in the 3rd year of medical school at the Hahnemann College for Heilkunst this discussion being raised in class.  We talked about how diseases of a microbiological nature are naturally declining.  How many of your peers or family members have suffering recently from Cholera or Scarlet Fever?  Even Cancer is on a 25% lessing trajectory and with less that 3% therapeutic efficacy in conventional medicine, this certainly is not due to Surgery, Chemotherapy or Radiation.

Autism will become the scourge of our modern times.  It is a condition of a lack of a healthy ontic (ontological, individuality or sense of one’s self) and on the biological level, physical and emotional armouring.  There is a reason that Autism is coming up on the tail end of Cancer, a disease so prevalent in the 60’s and 70’s.  That is because many of these babes are being born to professional mothers who’ve been subjected not only to a whole host of  environmental toxicity, vaccines, mercury fillings and expectations to be as intellectually adept by matching their male counterparts a full 50% in global boardrooms.

However, this all is coming at a cost.  Our Autistic children are being born to mothers bourn out of of the state of mind of cancer.  They’re mostly armoured in their natural functioning and unfoldment, they rescue others to the exclusion of themselves and suffering feelings of the un-lived life.  This is the definition for the state of mind of Cancer and they are prey to the education system and the corporate infrastructure needing a false authority to tell them what to do.  I know, because they attempt to put me on the same pedestal.

“Supplemental Feeding” by Edwin & Kelly Tofslie https://flic.kr/p/mA8wb

No, I’m not saying that stay at home Moms are preferable to working Moms for raising our babies.  The intellect will attempt to categorize what I’m saying here with big wad of guilt and a knee jerk reflective desire to distill the whole phenomenon down to the simplest terms.  It doesn’t work like that.  We can’t fix this phenomenon without the proper rumination or consideration.  It’s precisely THIS way of intellectualizing that is part of the problem.  The intellect despises phenomenology as it prefers unidimensional thinking.

What I am saying is that we’re transitioning more and more into intellectual automatons which is leaving our wombs and bubba-kins bereft of feeling, love, grace, ease, naturalness, surrender and the capacity for true wisdom properly ensouled and incarnated in our physical bodies.  We’ve lost much of our inherent ataraxia and it is impacting on the health of our children.

Our babes are being ravaged as a side-line project, an intellectual side-bar, because most people seems to “think” that they should spawn at least one child.  It is part of the social construct, an offshoot of our armoured beliefs, it is something we just do.  Isn’t it?! We’ve lost much of the modus operandi to want to wholly realize a love so profound with our parter that we’re overflowing with generosity and feeling by extending this to another human being for the whole of their childhood and beyond.  We’re having children and then resenting parenting them so we give them to others to parent and educate them for us.

"Amelia and Reese Terrorizing the Village by Donnie Ray Jones https://flic.kr/p/qqEUX1

“Amelia and Reese Terrorizing the Village by Donnie Ray Jones https://flic.kr/p/qqEUX1

I once served a female Lawyer who clearly never loved her husband in that luscious, full throttle kind of orgastic way, and had really used him as a donor to spawn a son and daughter.  Her hate for him and her circumstances was palatable.  Her focus was on fixing her children in a loveless marriage.  She even slept with the kids and never him!  Can you imagine?!  It was sad and pathetic and frustrating for all involved, including me, as the practitioner.

You can have the greatest regimen and throw remedies at a situation like that, but until the individual chooses love and resonance, that broken wheel is never going to turn out right, and neither are the kids.  I’ve written another article on why love and intimacy are critical for the health and well-being of our children, regardless of whether they’re in the spectrum or not here.

We’re, sadly, seeing giving birth more as an intellectual milestone of achieving just one more more rung in the accomplishment factory of our driven natures through false expectations.  Add to that state of mind, or lack thereof, our Genetics, toxic loads in the way of GMO’s, vaccines, DNA complications, circumcision, mental anguish, and intellectual robotics and you have a dynamic recipe for creating a child suffering ASD issues; vaccinated or not!

We’ve forgotten how to simply be, postured more as widgets to false authority and the expectations of others than on fulfilling our own true desire programs through love and a full embodied sense of our individual selves, which can at times include love for another human being, but not necessarily.  I know plenty of women, and men too, who ignore their artistic or musical abilities for a law or medical degree instead, but try a side order of parent-hood with disastrous consequences.  We diminish the wisdom in the arts (or other more personal fulfillments) and herald the capacity to sort intellectually in the most mechanistic and materialistic of ways.

"Tears" by Thomas Leuthard https://flic.kr/p/dkvRJ9

“Tears” by Thomas Leuthard https://flic.kr/p/dkvRJ9

Years ago, I served a writer Mom of two autistic boys (a rare case of non-vaxxed children) who made herself go to University for Pharmacy, working dispensing pills while wearing her Birkenstocks.  She was a full-fledged granola Momma, working a socially expected paradigm that was totally incongruent with her values.  She wasn’t even close enough to the cash register to guide patients to the more resonant Homeopathic Medicines that she loved and used at home; her true personal preference as she hated Big Pharma and pill pushing Doctors.  She lived from a state of utter incongruence and she had the symptoms to prove it.  She wrote poetry on her off-hours while totally exhausted from 12 hour shifts.  She despised her life and believed that she must settle for her present existence in order to clothe and feed her sons.  Her husband was an artist too.

By systematically procreating, without an ensouled thought for the outcome of this choice we starve our babes of a becoming functionally whole.  This is why, as a function of evolution, we’re seeing less diseases of the physical body like Cholera and more conditions related to our armoured beliefs, minds, spirit devoid of a true embodied wisdom.  Spiritual diseases like Autism, Schizophrenia and drug abuse (recreational and pharmaceuticals) are on the rise.  The trajectory indicates that ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorders) will become epidemic.   At the time of this writing 1 in 45 children will be diagnosed as Autistic.


I know this phenomenon to be true, I suffered this dynamic myself and I wrote a book, entitled, “The Path To Cure; The Whole Art of Healing Autism” for the same reasons I’ve cited above.  In the book, I cite my own son’s exodus from the Autism Spectrum due to Heilkunst treatment, but not to the exclusion of my former gestures of feeling prey to the expectations of others.  I was a broken, bereft automaton educated by a traditional University and working in public enterprise that did not give a rat’s hiney whether I ever had an individual thought in my head or not.

I was a Financial Advisor working for government with a dental plan and a pension, an armoured cog in a very big unfeeling wheel.  I was a widget, a contrivance of cloned cyborgs, working in 8 X 12 blue felt cubicles next to other cyborgs.  I hated it and my armoured hate produced a replicate of my intellectual stimming, a babe, who mimicked my chronic fears and anxieties devoid of speech with chronic rocking back and forth with little eye contact.  Are you starting to feel the connection?  Jordan had no way of being cured until I addressed the lack of connection to my true essential self … the false ego had to go!

Michael J. Lincoln, in his book “Messages From The Body,”  illustrates Autism as:

“Who’s the parent here?” There is childish behaviour by the adults going on around them, resulting in the individual’s feeling unprotected and vulnerable to invasive influences. In particular, the child is likely to be responding to their mother’s situation, feelings, and disrupted functioning. There is an experience of being helpless to cope with their situation, and it indicates that their emotional needs are not being met. They feel like they and their needs are being relegated to the back burner, and that they are being pushed aside by their family (mother in particular). It undermines their immune system and their ability to take care of themselves. It arises when the adults are more concerned about their own immediate comforts and convenience than they are about the welfare of the child, or when they operate with beliefs that teach the child that the child or they don’t have what it takes for the child to be perfectly safe and healthy.

“Out there.” They are an autistic or schizophrenic who is incapable of dealing with the demands of life. They live in constant fearfulness and overwhelm experiences. It is a “re-evaluation” of their life purpose, in which the essence processes the last several lives while not being in a position where they have to take care of themselves or anything else. Whatever family and/or genetic processes were involved in the precipitation of the disorder were part of the destiny design.

“Feeling-phobia.” They were so devastatingly but super-subtly trained to avoid awareness of the emotions as a child that it has resulted in a breakdown of the physical system for doing so. They come from a severely denial-dominated and or repressive dysfunctional family in which any contact with what people were really feeling would have resulted in a calamitous collapse of the whole family.


Here’s a video based on Wilhelm Reich’s book, “Children Of The Future” that may explain the gist of this article an how we produce, and alternatively prevent, armouring and gestures of Autism more clearly:

In summation, the microbiological diseases were designed to furnish the physical and etheric bodies with enough challenges to help along their incarnate capacities for this next phase of evolution.  We’re at the precipice of fully integrating the self, our ontic organization (as per Rudolf Steiner), or individuality.  Think iPhone, iPad, iMovie, etc.  Perhaps you’ll also find it interesting that Autistic children generally demand an iEducation based on individual mentorship rather than conforming to the expectation of a one size fits all educational approach most of us were subjected to.

We used to all more or less do the same thing in the post industrial age, working in offices, wearing the same suits.  Now we’re striving for autonomy and sovereignty.  The challenge, now, becomes ontological and the condition most associated with this task is Autism.  It is said that we’re all in the spectrum to a degree.  The genetic miasms most associated with Autism are Syphilis and Lyme which, as mentioned prior follows on the heels of Cancer as per timeline treatment under the Heilkunst umbrella of protocol.

51j1c6tSfTL._UY250_If you’re looking for additional resources, regarding this whole phenomenon, I wrote a second book on this topic entitled, “Unfolding The Essential Self; From Rage to Orgastic Potency.”  It is my Postgraduate Thesis and also a culmination of my own personal functional purpose.  I’ve spent the latter 20 years working to unravel the mess that society, my diseases, armouring and my unwitting familial construct hemmed me into.  Perhaps you too are ready to take the blue pill and step out of The Matrix too.

Before I Vaccinate My Child, I Have A Few Questions …


Well researched individuals are so brilliant.  It’s actually how I became to study Heilkunst Medicine.  I was a seeker looking for logical answers to my questions about health.  Now I have the pleasure of serving patients who also want answers to those same hard questions that I also asked.

It is refreshing to be engaged with that same need to know the truth behind something that just doesn’t wholly feel right.  Sometimes it is tough to put your finger on it, starting as just a gut instinct, but you innately know you just can’t do it until you have all the data and the true rationale behind the concept.

Here is a grouping of those questions that I’ve been asked over the last few years from patients and parents that have had that same inkling that something just doesn’t feel right with regards to forced vaccines.  I applaud that they know how to ask the right questions based on their innate common sense which has furthered their research.  It is the age of individual empowerment that we’re striving for.  I serve you, not the other way around.

To me, it is refreshing to know that we everyday folk are asking the right questions in the face of attempts to hijack our basic rights and freedoms by big pharma, politicians, certain allopaths, teachers, family members, friends and other folks who attempt to bully others with a false authority model of governance.  In the pursuit of self governance, autonomy and sovereignty, we salute your informed questions.

  • Why are newborns being vaccinated with Hep B the day they’re born for a disease that is primarily transmitted sexually and by drug users?  Also, this vaccination has typically worn off by the time a child becomes sexually active or, sadly, chooses to use a needle for street drugs.
  • Why are newborn infants vaccinated to induce the production of antibodies?  It is common knowledge, medically, that babes do not produce their own antibodies until after 3 – 6 months of age.
  • Why are government agencies encouraging mothers to delay breastfeeding, but to get more vaccines?  We all know that breast-fed babes are the most protected from errant bacteria, viruses, pathogens and diseases due to the protective antibodies found in breast milk.
  • Why is vaccination being forced on the population breaching our God-given inherent, autonomous, individual rights in some States?  If vaccines were so amazing, would they not sell themselves?  Wouldn’t everyone just naturally line up to get them?  Also, why are the vaccine companies protected from being sued if my child was (and he was) damaged from those same vaccines?
  • Where are the results from the randomized drug/vaccine trials by 3rd parties?  Where are the double blind, placebo studies in the medical journals that each individual has a right to research before injecting their child with toxic chemicals and adjuvants?  How is it that each parent can have access to the ingredients in their muesli (hopefully non-gmo) in the grocery store before they choose to ingest it but not what you’re going to inject into their child’s body?
  • Why do they call homeopathy unprincipled when they in fact don’t have an eighth of the scientific studies that you do or the anecdotal testimonials either?
  • Why are other countries being encouraged to follow the American vaccine schedule when the U.S. has the most vaccinated population on the planet also with the highest rates of SIDS/infant death mortality in the western world?
  • Why are disease outbreaks occurring in a population that is 90% vaccinated?
  • Why are kids vaccinated against measles and chicken pox still getting the diseases if the efficacy is supposed to be 100%?  Why is it that these same kids are shedding the disease creating the conditions ripe for disease pandemics?  Why are non-vaccinated kids/families being blamed for this?
  • Why are we afraid of said measles and chicken pox if they are not fatal and the idea is to train the immune system by experiencing fever for when something bigger comes along?  Isn’t it also true that if a child does not learn to walk first, that they will never learn to run?
  • Why are vaccine manufacturers allowed to cut down on the antigen properties of a vaccine and instead inject cheap, toxic additives that at best aggravate the injection site and at worse maim or kill the patient?
  • How come the Hippocratic Oath to “first cause no harm” seems not to apply in the use of vaccination and other drugs when they clearly do cause harm?
  • Why is the attitude that a certain percentage of children who’ve sustained vaccine damage is acceptable in the pursuit of herd immunity when we can safely use homeopathic medicine on the sound basis of homoprophylaxis instead without causing an ounce of harm?  What if it was their child who was harmed?
  • Is it true that 75% of allopathic doctors do not vaccinate their children?
  • Why is herd immunity still a concept when it has being scientifically debunked?
  • Why are multi-dose vaccines still encouraged if they are indeed 100% efficacious as the drug-companies would like us to think?  When was the last time any one of us saw a case of mumps or german measles?  Why are there now 49 doses of vaccines before the age of 6 with no increased out-break of any of these child-hood diseases?  Why has the medical establishment randomly increased the vaccine schedule?
  • Why can’t I just have my child vaccinated against polio and pertussis if that is my choice?  Again, if I don’t want all the ingredients in my muesli, I can just buy oats, raisins, and almonds separately if I choose.
  • Why won’t the doctor sign, date and notarize a written guarantee for my child’s safety before vaccinating for a product that they insist you have?  Where is the ethical accountability?



“Scientists Link Autism To These Toxic Chemicals During Fetal Development” and Why This Is Still Only Part Of The Issue









Click the Above Image to be taken to Collective Evolution; Scientists Link Autism To These Toxic Chemicals During Fetal Development


This is why when we detox the individual from these chemical insults, address the shocks and traumas on the timeline and the roots of the Genetic Miasms, without causing the organism an ounce of harm, we see a goodly resolution and recovery from ASD issues. The issues are dynamic and allopathic science will keep trying to isolate the chemical issues, but not answer or address the familial, karmic or soul/spiritual relationship issues; which are other significant deciding factors in the equation.

The ONLY law of cure is the law of nature, like cures like, however, you have to know how to wield homeopathic law on the sound basis of Heilkunst Principles, otherwise, you’ll be grasping at straws in the dark. In fact, Homeopathy is not a system, it is a principle literally meaning “similar suffering” from the Greek. In order to create full recoveries or resolutions to ASD, you have to have ALL of the pieces on the physical, emotional and spiritual fronts.

You’ll not solve it outright by applying a hundred different modalities on the law of opposites. I know, because I’ve been there; the speech therapists, several classical homeopaths, body workers, one-on-one tactile therapies, chelation,  specialized organic/high fibre diets, and on and on and on it goes. Yes, they can help (law of opposites support the organism), but I’m saying that they’re not going to fix the underlying cause (law of cure = like cures like).

I also had to address my own state of mind before my son could break through the glass ceiling of my own limitations before he could wholly resolve through Heilkunst. I was suffering in the cancer matrix with chronic fatigue and enough unresolved emotions to choke a whole herd of horses. I celebrate that my son will be 21 years old this summer and is more than full functioning (He runs his own business as a Bowen Therapist and manages/teaches at a trampoline acrobatics Facility); his emotional intuition and cognitive abilities still blow my mind!

How Vaccine Additives Affect Your State Of Mind : Another Vaccination Myth

I took a look at one aspect of vaccine efficacy yesterday, and today I want to examine an aspect of vaccine safety, but from a very different vantage point than you would normally encounter in vaccine articles. The list of additives and chemicals contained in the standard vaccine schedule is shocking, to say the least. There is a great number of toxic and carcinogenic substances, and common sense would dictate that we would want to exercise extreme caution about using any one of these, let alone such a long list of additives which children receive in the standard vaccination schedule.

For the purposes of today’s blog, rather than examine these toxins in the usual way, I want to illustrate some of them from the point of view of knowledge of the homeopathic materia medica. As you may remember, the symptom picture of every homeopathic remedy contains not only an image of certain physical symptoms, but also will embody a unique state of mind. Health functions out of a particular state of mind, and when it is impinged upon by disease, it will shift into the unique state of mind of the given disease.

Looking, then, at some of the vaccine additives from the point of view of their unique disease state of mind, we start to see a side of vaccination and its adverse effects based on this deeper image of a disturbed (away from health) state of mind. To the degree that a vaccine recipient has an underlying resonance for any of the diseases represented in the vaccine additives, they are susceptible to a strong reaction to the corresponding substance. Think of the overall state of mind of kids in the public school system, as well as the overall tone of our modern society as you read through these:

  • Alumina (aluminum) – A state of mind of dullness, and mental sluggishness. Slow mental processing, and a resulting irritability. The heart of this remedy is a state of mind which is confused about its own identity and purpose.
  • Calcarea Carbonicum – The state of mind of this disease is one which contains much anxiety about any number of things, including their own health, or ability to complete their work. The overall metabolism and immune function may be sluggish as a physical expression of the deeper state of mind, which is all about a struggle with fully engaging life.
  • Hura (Latex) – This is normally a remedy used in Heilkunst in the ‘ideogenic’ realm of disease, which has to do with the higher function of our mind, and its ability to see reality clearly as it is, and our place in it. Hura, more specifically, is a disease state of mind which feels separate or cut-off from society, where making true contact can seem impossible. Another side of this feeling is of being an outcast.
  • Mercurius – This is a fascinating disease state of mind. Mercurius is a kind of shape-shifter, in the sense of a con artists that keeps changing their identity and never getting caught. This disease produces many irrational impulses, and strange behaviours. As a physical toxin it has a strong affinity for the brain and nervous system, and this is seen in strange tone of emotions and behaviours in this remedy.

Moving past the vaccination myth through the immunization answer : A radio program

I was recently on Dr. Dena Churchill‘s radio program with a panel of different experts talking about vaccination, and what the options are for parents who may be deciding to partially or completely avoid vaccinating their children.



Dr. Dena Churchill



Here was the original description which Dr. Dena posted with the show:

Are vaccines safe and effective? Is vaccination an informed choice? Where do we find information to know the warning signs of a vaccine reaction and risks?

The safety and efficacy of vaccinations is a controversial topic. Depending on who you talk to they are either praised and celebrated for wiping out epidemics or blamed for vaccination reactions and disabilities. Where is the truth in these extreme ranges of opinions? Which vaccinations carry the most risk? Why would the public challenge vaccination? Who ultimately benefits?

This show is not intended as medical advice. As with any medical procedure involving a child, parents should gather all available information and discuss the decision of whether or not to vaccinate with one or more doctors and with consideration for the individual laws of your province, state and country. Our intention in this segment is simply to illustrate that vaccination is with the most health conscious parents an informed choice and to share with you the resources, information and options.

Join me with our panel of experts:

Barbara Loe Fisher (President of National Vaccine Information Center)

Glenna Calder (Naturopathic Doctor)

Tim O’Shea ( Author of Vaccination is not Immunization)

Jeff Korentayer ( Doctor of Medical Heilkunst)

Homeopathic Mercury

This blog is part of a series; its original title was Homeopathic Mercury [Heilkunst Basics : University, 2nd Year (Mercurius)]

There are a number of therapeutic approaches in Heilkunst designed to address the problem of the false ego. Today’s exploration will be of the use of the homeopathic remedy mercurius in this capacity.

Mercury is one of the most toxic substances known on the planet, and it is quite alarming to consider the implications for many people who have had it drilled into their oral cavity as part of their dental amalgams (fillings). It is the byproduct of many industrial processes, and is a common toxin found at measurable levels in our air, water, and food supply. It is a component of many common commercial products, including adhesives, antiseptics, batteries, commercial cereals, cosmetics, fabric softeners, paper products, and seafoods (especially tuna and swordfish), just to name a few.

Its toxic effects centre primarily in the brain and the nervous system, and produce many disease conditions related to the mental and emotional levels. Given our current discussion on the false ego, it makes sense that mercurius would be a remedy quite helpful in treatment, as the primary locus of the ontic organization is in the nervous system, and likewise, the false ego’s activity works at this same level. Mercury appears on the sixth row of the periodic table, which contains all the homeopathic remedies primarily concerned with the issue of autonomy.

Remember that the law of similars will generally work on the basis of such a match between a given disease process, and a toxin or poison which produces a similar effect. The negative influence which mercury has on the nervous system, including symptoms of twitches, or other more significant impairments to our basic co-ordination are also related to the fundamental negative blockage which the false ego creates in our system.

The mythological god, Mercury, ruled over commerce as well as thieves, which is a fascinating connection to think of in terms of our mediation on the function of the false ego, and how it works through the world on manipulative terms. Making “a deal with the devil” is something which the false ego, and not the true self, will engage in.

Mercurius is characteristically very elusive, and difficult to connect with in terms of a natural social relationship. At the extreme end of this would be the total withdrawal, and non-communication status of an autistic individual, who has often been very much affected by some form of mercury exposure.

In general, mercurius is a remedy used for a broad variety of issues related to the identity (as in true versus false), particularly where it is either weak or confused. There is a great deal of changeability or instability in this disease state, as would make sense in terms of the false ego which is always adapting opportunistically to its surrounding environment, rather than being guided more surely by an inner principle of self.

Emotionally, mercurius is highly sensitive, and will perceive slights or criticisms which may not exist in an objective sense. For this reason, amongst others, it is very difficult to form a true relationship with someone in a mercurius state, or at least one which goes past the outer surface.

The Chthonic Realm : Helleborous

The eighth and final remedy to complete my exploration of the chthonic realm is Helleborous, which at first glance will seem to be quite anti-climactic, compared to all the heat, drama, and violence of many of the other remedies in this series. Helleborous is also commonly used in the first aid jurisdiction for the treatment of head injuries, particularly involving the top of the head. If you think of the feeling of having a head injury which may include confusion or slowed down thought processes, you start to understand some of its essence as a chthonic remedy.

Like Veratrum, Helleborous is the other chthonic remedy which relates to a functional body in our fourth (‘ontic’) body, which relates to our sense of self. This remedy largely relates to affectations of the mental sphere, including confusion, dullness, or even apathy or depression. While these symptoms would be the obvious result of a head injury, they need to be understood in a different context as a chthonic (fear) remedy, where the origin of these symptoms emerges from fears or anxieties, and not to a physical cause.

“The lights are on, but no one is home” can very well be the catch phrase for this state, as it is not clear if much of anything is being processed. At a deeper level, the underlying emotion to this state can be connected to a feeling of being lost, and without any grounding in life.

In terms of physical ailments, Helleborous can prove useful for some aspects of autism, as well as other conditions where an impairment in cognitive processing or communication are key. Other conditions including weak memory, or even a case of Alzheimer’s may also be helped by it. At a sub-clinical level, it will apply to any condition which has been caused by extended periods of having to engage in non-resonant work, where someone is literally “bored out of their mind”, and slowly begin to lose their facility with their cognitive abilities.

The Chthonic Realm : Baryta Carbonicum

As Arnica was the first remedy representing the cold stream of the Chthonic Realm (at the level of the physical body), Baryta Carbonica is the remedy for blockages related to the etheric body, which is the locus of all life functions and processes. You could say that it is an inversion of the themes in the chthonic remedy Stramonium, which is the more extroverted form of the types of fears expressed in Bar-c. The picture that comes to my mind when I think of the essence of this remedy is of a bashful child hiding behind their mother’s skirt. This is an image which portrays both the deep shyness of this remedy, as well as the state of emotional dependence.

This is a remedy which is useful for any number of conditions which involve some form of developmental delay, including the various forms of autism. Delays at any level can be helped with this remedy, including physical, mental, or emotional. Likewise for adults whose process of growth was halted at a certain life stage, where you get a palpable sense that their mental or emotional maturity is still frozen at an age much younger than their chronological one. As with any remedy, this can be true at very subtle levels, which may or may not be discernible in any given case. This is especially true with this remedy, which has a core fear of being laughed at, or ridiculed, and will often work out one or several means of “covering up” their core vulnerability.

Bar-c is useful for any physical delay in development, such as in children who seem to fall to the bottom of the statistical growth charts for their age, in terms of height, weight, or other developmental milestones. Early diagnosis of autism, for example, is defined in terms of identifying children who do not achieve characteristic milestones by certain chronological points in their development.

The Sean Penn movie I Am Sam portrays the Bar-c state quite accurately. It is a story of a mentally retarded father, who is fighting a custody case with the State, who is threatening to take his daughter away on account of his mental age being about age 7. His lawyer, portrayed by Michelle Pfeiffer, is a great illustration of the phenotype Nux Vomica, as she is a hard-driving career woman who has alienated herself from her own son. The theme of “all you need is love” runs through the movie, and Sam melts the icy heart of this lawyer, and many people around him with the purity that only a child could muster.

Syphilis Has Arrived On The Coat-Tails of Summer

The Summer Solstice marks the day of the most daylight, as it ushers in the heart of all the things which summer means to everyone. Especially in climates in the further Northern latitudes, these precious weeks of summer sun and heat are cherished, as people pack in as much of their favourite outdoor activities that they can. Our moods reach the height of their expansive capacity, while we metabolize sunlight to be stored as vitamin D to take us through the winter.

There is an underbelly to all of this, which is represented within the essence of the syphilis miasm, which is also ushered into more acute expression, beginning about the time of the Solstice. If you think in terms of the cycle of gardening season, the massive growth of the spring has already peaked, and the hot, dry days of summer now threaten the possibility of drought, decay, and death. Likewise, people within the “concrete jungle” of the city can start to express high levels of irritability, and lashing out even to the point of “road rage” or other random acts of violence. If you keep this image in mind, you’ll begin to understand the inner dynamics of anyone with a genetic inheritance of this miasm (which we all have to some degree).

Destruction, decay, and processes of things breaking down or falling apart all describe the essential characteristics of this miasm at all levels (physical, mental, emotional). Physical conditions including any form of auto-immune disorder, as well as psychological conditions of depression, despair, even to the point of suicide fill out some of the details. The emotional acts of blaming and criticizing are further indicators of this energy. A feeling that life is meaningless, and that “there is no point” form part of the more extreme version of this mental and emotional state. The expression “Life’s a bitch, and then you die” portrays the sentiment of this feeling.

In less extreme form, you’ll see peculiar symptoms, such as ritualistic or compulsive behaviours, or even fleeting thoughts of doing strange things, such as wondering “what would happen if I put my fingers into the electrical socket?” Compulsive thoughts such as “I wonder if I left the stove on at home?” can fill the mind of the patient driven by the energy of this disease. Insanity is feared, or may eventually be succumbed to.

In its earlier phases, syphilis can be quite charming, and capable of drawing others into their world. In more extreme forms, this is part of the pattern of the formation of cults around charismatic leaders, who gradually lead them to do either strange or very destructive acts, including mass suicide. On an individual basis, this same dynamic within syphilis, is behind all forms of addictions, and other self-destructive behaviours which at some level involve forms of self-deception or charming oneself into being OK with “just one more”.

Physical symptoms of syphilis include ulceration in any form. Deep conditions down to the bone, such as extreme growing pains in children, bone cancers, or leukemia emerge at the later phases of this disease. Flesh-eating disease, AIDS, and other physical manifestations of the self-destructive pattern of this remedy are increasing, as syphilis becomes a more and more dominant medical phenomenon in our modern context. Years of use of antibiotics, and such, have suppressed the primary infectious form of syphilis, and converted it into this inheritable genetic form I’m describing here. There are many artistic portrayals of this energy, including the brilliantly acted role of The Joker in Batman – The Dark Knight, which I wrote about in my blog series on fluoride.

In the Words of One of My Patients – Successful Asperger’s Treatment With Heilkunst

An Asperger’s patient of mine posted his personal review on Amazon (which I’ve copied below) of a book that introduced him to the possibilities that Homeopathic treatment might give him. The book is A Drug-Free Approach to Asperger Syndrome and Autism: Homeopathic Care for Exceptional Kids by Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman, Robert Ullman, and Ian Luepker. I always enjoy hearing the different ways that people cross paths with Heilkunst.

Very interesting and eye-opening, November 29, 2007 By Jonathan Davies (Ottawa, ON, Canada) I read this book just after it came out, and it is one of the books I have read in recent years that have really encouraged me to “think outside the box”. I have Asperger’s myself, and by the time I read this book, I had started working with someone who has Asperger’s quite severely. After reading the case studies in this book of people with Asperger’s who were very difficult cases before receiving certain treatments, but changed dramatically after these treatments, I started to wonder if the difficult case whom I was working with would benefit from these treatments. It just so happened that when I was reading this book, I was already getting NAET treatments to eliminate some of my allergies (I found out about NAET treatments from other sources), so I asked the naturopath who was giving me my NAET treatments if he knew of anybody in Ottawa who gives homeopathic treatments. He then gave me the name and phone # of a homeopath whom he knew, and then, I contacted him, and asked him if he treated autism. He told me that he did, so I then told the mother of the Asperger client I work with about him, and then she proceeded to take her to him. After my client started getting treatments from this homeopath, I started getting treatments from him as well. Even before I started getting homeopathic treatments, my Asperger symptoms were not as severe as those of my client, but I still wanted them to be even less severe! Why have Asperger symptoms (even mild ones) if you don’t have to? Eh? I believe that I am further ahead now than I would be if I hadn’t “thought outside of the box”, and this is one of the books that has encouraged me to “think outside the box”!

Jonathan certainly has gotten “outside the box” of Asperger’s since undergoing Heilkunst treatment with me. The man I originally met, and the man he is today are almost not even the same person — while he is not completely free of some of the qualities of Asperger’s, there have been tremendous strides as we’ve worked through clearing his time line (including childhood vaccinations), and through the deeper genetic factors (the chronic miasms). One of the things which interests me the most about Jonathan is the way he thinks through things, and is always asking questions, and never settling for any pat answers.
