This child is ADD from the vaccines.  I've taken her case and believe Medhorrinum is her constitutional.  I've had a number of autistic children in the past and some I've started with ascending doses of the vaccines which have caused the damage, while with others I've used their constitutional remedy.  I just recently read an article by James Compton Burnett about using Thuja to cure vaccine damage.  I'm sure that in his lifetime, smallpox was the only vaccine people used.  So now, I'm confused about how to start this case.  I've never worked with a Down's Syndrome child before.  Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Not very sure but you could look into Bar. Carb and Nat. mur and especially their related remedies(Late in learning).

Hope it helps.

Thanks Drofart.  I've looked at several remedies including Bar-carb and Nat-mur, and Medh is the best fit at several levels - miasmatic, keynotes, modalities, and totality.  My conundrum is whether I should give the constitutional or whether I should first give the vaccines in ascending doses.  Then I read the article by Burnett and I'm wondering if all I need to do is give Thuja, although that doesn't feel right intuitively.

Well my advice would be to use the remedy that suits the presentation first, then look at isopathic remedies if it fails.

Thanks, David.  I see her tomorrow and I had just about decided that I should start with the Medhorrinum.  I'm glad you posted.

Sorry I have only just seen this. A lecturer told us about her use of Clay 200 weekly with Downs Syndrome and the children ended up in main stream schooling not even at the bottom of the class. I tried it once with a 40 yr old and it helped his respiratory stuff - Dad refused to let him see me again when he discovered Mum had taken their son off the medication that subdued him so he had become a normal man looking to live life again!!! He had started communicating and talking better than he had ever done before. You may remember me speaking to you years ago about this case and the abuse the parents carried out towards him every morning when they manually extracted his stool so his bowel movements didn't inconvenience him.

Hi Shirley,

Sorry I am late to respond here - 

I have many children/adults with DS in my practice - including one of my own!

I see nice results with a holistic approach of homeopathy, guided use of supplements and strict nutritional advice.

I agree with the practitioner above - I begin with the constitutional if it is well indicated. Then I introduce either specific vaccine remedies, or Thuja, depending on how the case is moving and what is presenting. For younger children, I use a descending protocol of Tub. Koch. I have seen nice results constitutionally with Tarentula, Baryta-carb, Calc-carb, Stramonium - all depending on the case taking.

I advise (depending on age): fish oil/DHA, gingko (in Gemmo form), B complex, Vit D3, cells salts (usually calc phos), probiotics - and then some others as indicated.

For starters, I have them remove gluten and most cow dairy - and all processed foods. (disposition towards upper respiratory and ear infections)

The earlier I can get the child in my practice, the better long term results we see - and the children tend to be mostly mainstreamed and have great language skills.

The older clients with DS are more difficult to treat if they have not had intense intervention from a young age - they come to me on psychotropic medications - as they tend to be very sensitive to impressions - and are being sedated, basically. With all these methods mentioned above, homeopathy can usually help resolve their most limiting behaviors (usually anxiety and/or aggression), which can be helpful for their caregivers.

Hope all this helps! There are many other avenues to take for them to improve quality of life - but this is the short version. :) Let us know how the case is going.

Thanks everyone.  I started her on ascending doses of the vaccines she had and then followed with Medh, which fit her case.  Nothing happened.  Baryta-carb was the second most suitable remedy and voila, she responded beautifully.  A month later, the father was offered a wonderful job in NC.  He is a DO whose grandfather was a homeopath.  He was working at a large hospital based clinic in Cinci and could only do allopathy.  He went to a small holistic clinic where he could use all the alternative modalities he had training in.  So I referred the family to a homeopath in their new city who used to work as an OT with Downs Syndrome children.  We spoke and I feel comfortable and sure that she will continue to work with the child to good result.
