On my last update, Skyler had taken his first homeopathic remedy (sulphur), and we had seen one amazing day following it. Since that time, the remedy seemed to have worn off, so Dr. Angelica Lemke advised that we give Skyler the remedy every 2 or 3 days. Although we were seeing great results with his communication skills and interaction, it seemed like his temper was flaring more than usual. My happy-go-lucky toddler was going ballistic over little things such as bath time, bed time, or not getting a new toy at Walmart. It broke my heart to see him crying so easily and pitching fits more often!
With a heavy heart, I contacted Angelica again about the tantrums. She replied that he needed Chamomilla and that I could get it at a local Whole Foods store. Sure enough, Plum Natural near our house carried homeopathic Chamomilla, so I purchased it and gave it to Skyler that night. The next night I gave it to him again. The day after the 2nd dose, my mother took Skyler to Occupational Therapy and called because she was concerned that he “wasn’t acting right.” When I questioned her, she stated that he seemed overly calm. He had gone into the waiting room and sat down to play with a bead toy. Then when another child asked if he wanted to look at books, he quietly said, “Yes,” and began looking at the books. My mother asked him if he would like to move up to a chair to look at his books, and he happily did so. He waited patiently and looked at his books until the therapist came out to get him. After therapy, the therapist shared a wonderful report. Our child who had previously been having difficulty transitioning and who had become more obstinate and tantrum-prone had been very agreeable and worked really well on everything he was asked to do! When I asked my mother why this wonderful behavior concerned her, she said because it was so out of character for Skyler these days. It is just hard to imagine a dramatic change like that happening so quickly!
That night, as I laid in bed reading my Kindle, Skyler crawled into bed with me and pretended to read along with me. He would point at the words and say, “Once upon a time….” and would tell me amazing stories about Skyler and the pumpkin patch. We would take turns telling stories to each other, and he was very loving and calm. I truly enjoyed this time with my son and felt closer to him than I have ever felt. It was amazing, and words cannot describe how it made me feel!
Last night when it was time for his bath, Skyler went into the bathroom, used the potty, and then hopped into the shower without one single whine or complaint. When it was time for bed, I simply said, “Skyler, it’s 8:30.” He looked intently at the clock and said, “8:30 is time for bed.” He then gave me a goodnight kiss and walked sweetly to bed.
I have to admit that it’s easy to be skeptical about homeopathy, but you simply cannot argue the results. It has been nothing short of amazing!!! I have really learned a lot about biomedical interventions, and homeopathy works with it flawlessly. In fact, I might would recommend homeopathy to a parent of an autistic child before biomedical. That says a lot about my high opinion of Angelica and the results I have seen in my son. I believe that continuing biomedical interventions will make Skyler healthier and will help him to continue gaining new skills, but I feel in my heart that homeopathy will cure him. I’ve never given up faith, but it feels surreal even saying that aloud. Thank you, Angelica, for helping to bring our son back to us. You will always hold a special place in our hearts!
