A TEAM APPROACH

At the Real Child Center we consult with families of ASD children. Together we devise holistic strategies geared towards gently returning the child to a balanced state. Autism is a complex disorder which affects a child physically, cognitively and emotionally. Finding natural solutions to remove stressors which may trigger disordered sleeping patterns, self-stimulatory and/or aggressive behaviors, and attentional deficits, are keys to their future success.

Our primary goal at the Real Child Center is to re-ignite the healing response buried within the ASD child, and bring them back on the path of wellness; as quickly, and as safely, as possible.

HOMEOPATHY

Samuel Hahnemann developed homeopathy in the 18th century. He discovered that highly diluted remedies have the potential to stimulate the body’s own healing response. Homeopathy is based on the theory that “like cures like.”

HOMOTOXICOLOGY

Dr. Hans-Heinrich Reckewig developed homotoxicology. He was a physician in Germany and also practiced Homeopathy. Dr. Reckeweg felt that mankind needed a new form of homeopathy to account for the stresses of modern life. He developed the “Great Defense System of Five Parts.” This theory states that the body goes through five phases when fighting a disease: excretion phase, reaction phase, deposition phase, impregnation phase and degeneration phase.

Although homotoxicology is based on the principals of homeopathy, it can be thought of as a “bridge” between allopathic and homeopathic medicine. As such, it has many similarities to classical homeopathy as well as differences. One key difference is that it places more emphasis on the physical manifestations of disease and uses diagnostic tools based on anatomical and clinical findings (similar to allopathic medicines.) Homotoxicology also utilizes complex homeopathic remedies designed to restore the child’s vital force and balance the biological flow system.

Homotoxicology studies the influences of toxic substances in humans where symptoms and disease are seen as a result of the appropriate biological resistance to toxic substances. Homotoxicology views disease as a process within humans and the homeopathic preparations are therefore designed to deal with the distinct stages of an illness.

The combination formulas we use which are based on the principals developed by Dr. Reckeweg are unique and based upon not only a large body of knowledge but also on a complete strategy for therapeutic application in the various phases of disease.

One special approach is to make the body ready and responsive for the treatments. Eliminating the toxins has become a recognized factor to a healthy body and is critical to the development of these children.

It is vitally important If the body is not prepared to remove the toxins the treatments will not have the proper effect. This is the vitally important aspect and the reason for the many concrete successes we have seen.

DETOXIFICATION

Detoxification comes in many forms and refers to many different programs that cleanse the body of toxins. Today, our very environment is toxic and the foods we eat, even the air we breathe and the water we drink is laden with chemicals foreign to our system. Therefore, to maintain health, everyone is undergoing some type of detoxification. Although basic detoxification begins with diet, detoxification programs may include nutritional fortification for the liver, lungs, kidneys, bowels and blood.

We will soon see why these organs are so important in detoxification. Detoxification for the body may refer to the cleansing of the bowels, kidneys, lungs, the liver or the blood, since these are the organs involved in detoxification of chemicals and toxins from the body. The liver acts as an “in-line” filter for the removal of foreign substances and wastes from the blood. The kidneys filter wastes from the blood into the urine, while the lungs remove volatile gases as we breathe.

Our body is designed to utilize natural substances, which includes foods, herbs and phytochemicals. Any foreign substance will serve as a stimulus to our immune system, which has the function of removing these substances. Although the toxicity of a chemical may vary, it is the job of the liver to reduce toxins into compounds that the body can safely handle and eliminate through the kidneys (as urine), skin (as sweat), lungs (as expelled air) and bowels (as feces). Maintaining these eliminative organs in good working order is essential for one’s good health to continue.

While there are many detoxification programs available, they differ in their actions and their intent. Some detoxification programs work only with the bowels, others may cleanse the liver or the blood, and others may aid the kidneys or the skin in their functions. By combining these detox programs into a total health program, one can effectively restore their health to an optimal level and look younger in the process. When the body can eliminate toxins, then health is restored and energy and vigor are revitalized. Many different approaches to detoxification and wellness will work, even though they attack the problem at different levels. Any program that augments detoxification will improve health. Other factors must be considered in detoxification, like nutrition, water, and exercise, rest, sunshine, and fresh air. We have a variety of proven methods we use to detoxify the body safely and gently.
