The Illness of Not Being Allowed to be Ill













I was studying Husemann and Wolff’s take on Anthroposophical Medicine, Vol. I and read the following excerpt about H. Muller-Eckhard who devoted a monograph to the problem of “the illness of not being allowed to be ill.”

I was deeply struck by my own experience of this plight of the intellect to not know the deeper meaning behind the functional nature of illness. If you have a tumor, the Allopathic Doctor, will over-recommend surgery and some form of chemical warfare. However, he will not ask you why you feel you’ve chosen the path of “the un-lived life” or why you may “rescue others to the exclusion of yourself” as a function of your evolution. He also won’t suggest that your beliefs be looked at so that a re-infection can be avoided.

If I never saw illness, I would not know that fever in a child produces the most amazing growth spurt afterwards. I’ve witnessed Autistic children speak for the first time after a bout of a healthy fever. I’ve listened to many women, who have come off their anti-depressants, tell me they feel they’ve missed years of feeling any of their emotions. One women cried at a movie for the first time in twenty years after she stopped taking the pill. I had one fellow, during Heilkunst treatment, quit his job, leave his wife and strike out as an Art Consultant as he resolved his cancer state of mind. En route, though, he had many bouts of tears and anguish.

As a Heilkunst Physician, we have now come to the heretical understanding that a child has childhood diseases in order to become healthier. It is evident that without this function, the child cannot easily or effectively accomplish the complete adaptation process to fully enter the adult order. Without this capacity to navigate through the adversity of illness, he can not wholly learn to discern the promise of continual change without pause and suffering.

Tylenol and Vaccines suppress this spiritual mapping to becoming a whole, generative and creative being in the face of healthy adversity at a time in their lives when they are meant to develop this function. The Allopathic model simply can’t take the heat!

Summarizing in conclusion, H. Muller-Eckhard says:
“Every childhood disease has a meaning and an immanent
function that can become active in many directions. Quite often a
childhood disease is an irreplaceable help in life, which the child
cannot do without in many situations on the difficult journey out
of his magic and mystical state of consciousness into the world of
the crass reality of the adult order. In all the well-meant protective
immunization against childhood diseases, especially against those
involving desquamation (the shedding of the outer layer of a surface), one thing seems to have been forgotten: with the childhood diseases that are “eliminated,” and whose appearance and arising is made impossible, the active and wholesome functions of these diseases are also taken from the child.”

In fact, Harris Coulter has even linked the criminal element to the suppressive nature of vaccines in his book, Vaccination, Social Violence and Criminality. I, too, had the toughest time shifting my own paradigm. Crawling out of my son’s own Autistic spectrum paradigm was the vehicle to knowing that the function of childhood illness is absolutely critical to a human being’s development. And with Heilkunst medicine, all of this can be accomplished without suffering or harm to the child.

E-mail from Trevor’s Mom after just 6 Heilkunst Treatments:

Just couldn’t wait until next Wed to tell you what a GREAT day Trevor had today. He woke up in great spirits with a huge appetite that lasted ALL day. He got everyone in the family involved in a pretend pirate game in which he declared that I was the captain and he and everyone else were the Mates. We have NEVER played pirates before so I don’t know where that came from. Later in the afternoon, Stephanie got him to play doctor and bandage a cut she had. He really got into character with that one too.

We went to playgroup at our church this morning and he brought a toy car along with him. I warned him that he would have to share it…which he normally would not do very willingly. She said that he would and sure enough, not only did he share…but he ENCOURAGED everyone to play with it…and came to me at one point dissapointed because no one else wanted to pay with his car…I quickly found a boy that wanted to play with it and he was happy again.

He ate a TON during snacktime at playgroup…this is in comparison to the past 2 Wed morning playgroups where he never even sat down at the snack table (the usual for him).

He was the first one there this morning and the last to leave. Not that I’m happy about what he ate…pretzels and graham crackers….but he did have SEVERAL helpings of each.

His energy level stayed high in the afternoon and he played well with Rachel (they usually CLASH). He had a swim lesson at 3pm and he did GREAT!! He could have focused more on the teachers instructions and his eye contact could have been better…but he did do everything that was asked of him once he listened or watched. Last Wed was his first lesson and he spent the entire 1/2 hour crying/screaming ” I want to go home” and never got into the water at all!!

He did not get as upset and throw things when he got frustrated trying to play a game this evening. Did not get upset when I left the house twice to drop off/pick up his sister. (Dad was home…but Trevor usually wants to go with me when I leave).

He just had smiles and giggles all day and was a lot of fun!!!

He was however VERY constipated all afternoon…with a blockage….had some liquidy bms leak around the blockage….but he did finally pass the LARGE BM at around 5 pm today. But, even with the constipation…he was in pretty good spirits….just could not SIT down at a right angle for most of the afternoon…poor guy!!

He did a funny thing at bedtime. He said, next time (meaning tomorrow night) could I have a baby bottle? I asked him why and he said because he liked the sippy thing. Interesting…. He did LOVE his bottles and we had lots of trouble giving them up!!!

Well…I knew you said we’d see rapid improvements with the addition of my treatment! Wow! I really think that ever since the MMR remedy, he has been improving in so many areas very rapidly. As for me….I’ve lost 8 lbs so far!! I’m under 200 and have no plans to ever got back up!!! I’m thrilled. I find this diet pretty easy to stick with….I do miss carbs…but if I just drink the Raspberry Leaf tea when I have a craving, it takes care of it.

I’m looking forward to Trevor‘s appointment next Wed!!

Many Blessings,


Allyson McQuinn, DMH: I have seen Trevor for only 6 visits so far and his improvements have been monumental and we have focussed almost solely on clearing each vaccination booster/trauma using the principles of Heilkunst. When I first began working with Trevor, he did not make eye contact, he constantly flapped his arms, and had many patterns of a ritualistic nature. He would answer questions like, “How are you?” with, “My name is Trevor.” His Mom has been stellar to work with regarding the Regimen component as much of this jurisdiction had already been addressed, which would contribute to the greater resolution in the jurisdiction of lawful medicine we have come to expect in this case.
