The Journey Back - Recovery of the Self Through Heilkunst

by Rudi Verspoor, FHCH, DMH HD(RHom.) and Patty Smith-Verspoor, FHCH, DMH HD(RHom.)

Many treatments have been proposed for autism. Most seem to address the symptoms of the problem rather than the true underlying causes. There is a system of medicine called Heilkunst that addresses these causes and has an integrated approach to removing the autistic condition.

Heilkunst looks at the individual circumstances of each child, since each case is unique, and includes homeopathy, as well as drainage, detoxification, diet, supplements, balancing of the autonomic nervous system, energy work and fungal treatment.

Heilkunst means the art of making people whole - in body, mind, soul and spirit - and this book sets out the principles and foundations of this therapeutic system. It will change your life, and the life of your child.

Heilkunst offers a consistent, comprehensive, integrated approach to transforming autistic children into active, healthy and fully-functioning contributors to society. The child blessed with autism has tremendous potential that is desperately seeking to be expressed. Heilkunst provides a key to unlocking that full potential.

About the Authors

Rudi Verspoor and Patty Smith trained as classical homeopaths. Through their clinical work and experience they discovered an untapped fountain of insights by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, the founder of homeopathy, that amounts to a radical new system of treatment that is extremely effective, particularly in chronic, complicated cases.

Rudi and Patty work together in the Hahnemann Clinic for Heilkunst in Ottawa, Canada, where they also teach Dr. Hahnemann's complete medical system to students internationally through the Hahnemann College for Heilkunst.

The Complete Homeopathy Handbook:
A Guide to Everyday Health Care
by Miranda Castro

A London homeopath gives advice on home treatment of common ailments such as headaches, flu, and indigestion. She describes the history and principles of homeopathy, tells how to diagnose and prescribe as a professional would, and offers a descriptive materia medica and repertory of symptoms for both external and internal treatment. She also includes guidelines on which ailments can be safely treated at home and case histories. Castro's clear, well-organized manual is one of the most accessible general-audience references on the subject--less comprehensive than Andrew Lockie's Family Guide to Homeopathy ( LJ 7/91) but easier to use for the beginner. Recommended for public libraries.

A Drug-Free Approach to Asperger Syndrome and Autism:
Homeopathic Care for Exceptional Kids

by Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman, Robert Ullman, Ian Luepker

If You’re Looking For a Drug-Free Approach to ASD, Read This Book!

There are many different approaches for children on the autism spectrum. You may be wondering, what makes this book different from all the others you’ve read? We offer an approach that is natural, safe, and free of side effects that can offer significant, even dramatic, results for children with ASD and other developmental, behavioral, and learning problems.

Let us share with you what we have found in our work with these remarkable patients. After you read about the children we have been able to help using homeopathic medicine, you may find it to be an avenue you wish to pursue further.

What if we told you about an approach to treating ASD that was individualized, addressed all of your child’sproblems at once, looked at your child as a unique person rather than a diagnosis, and could be used along with conventional medicine, or even replace it? And what if the medicines tasted so good that kids begged for more? If you’re an open-minded, curious type of person, we hope we have stirred your curiosity. If you’re a diehard skeptic, these claims may seem implausible, if not impossible. But they are not.

The cases in this bookare those of real patients from our practice (identities have been disguised for privacy). Even if you have never even heard of homeopathy, if you have any interest in the subject of ASD we believe you will find this book intriguing and, quite possibly, a lifesaver.

Homeopathy is one of the few therapies that can provide real hope for families struggling with autism spectrum disorders. I should know! My own son was cured of autism with homeopathy. In this book, the Ullman duo, along with Dr. Ian Luepker, have done it again. As with Ritalin-Free Kids and their other books, they have offered the layperson seeking help and hope a clear and concise book that offers both. The autism community is thirsting for books like this one. An invaluable patient guide! Amy L. Lansky, PhD. Author of Impossible Cure: The Promise of Homeopathy

Is This Your Child?
by Doris Rapp

These are the major symptoms of potentially unrecognized allergies. Does your child suffer from any of the following?

• Allergic Nose Rub
• Eye Circles
• Red Ears
• Red Cheeks
• Eye Wrinkles
• Aggression
• Lack of Alertness
• Mottled Tongue

In this breakthrough book, Dr. Doris Rapp offers a simple yet effective approach to handling "problem" children. Is This Your Child? shows parents how to identify the common foods, chemicals, or common allergic substances that could be the culprits that cause some children or adults to feel unwell or act inappropriately. If your child is always sick, hyperactive, a slow learner, or cranky, the first question you should ask is not "What drug should be prescribed?" or "What have I done wrong as a parent?" Instead, find out the cause.

Dr. Rapp gives sensible suggestions about how these reactions to foods and environmental factors can be recognized, prevented, and treated. With this information, many affected children should feel, act, behave, and learn better. If you can detect unsuspected environmental illness in your child--or yourself--you can change your lives so you're more content, happy, and free of illness.
