Homeopathy & Homotoxicology and Their Role in Reversing Vaccine Injury
Homeopathy & Homotoxicology and Their Role in Reversing Vaccine Injury Wednesday, May 26 8:00 am - 12 noon
Current scientific research and clinical experience suggests a large subset of the ASD population possesses poor detoxification capabilities and an inability to immunologically overcome viruses and bacteria from vaccines and environmental exposures. Therefore, toxins may bio-accumulate from a number of sources, including residual toxicity and pathogens from vaccines, the overuse of pharmaceutical interventions, and environmental assaults resulting in many dysfunctional systems, including food and environmental allergies, gut dysbiosis, under- and over-immune system reactivity. The focus this morning is the role vaccines play in contributing to the over-burdened immune system, and the neurological implications leading to autism. Many parents are rightfully concerned that their ASD child's weakened and compromised system cannot tolerate more aggressive detoxification therapies frequently discussed, and they are eager to learn about gentle, yet effective holistic alternative strategies to address these chronic health issues of the ASD child. Case studies from numerous successes in recovering children with autism through the applications of sequential homeopathy, homotoxicology and immunotherapy will be both informative and inspirational. Each practitioner will share tips and insights on how to elevate your child's health and well-being, moving toward recovery.

Cindy L. Griffin, DSH-P, DIHom, BME
is co-owner of Homeopathy Center of Houston. She specializes in autism spectrum disorders but has also seen success with chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, digestive and nervous system disorders, Lyme disease, cancer and many other chronic illnesses. Cindy continues to practice, write and teach about the Houston Homeopathy method, a drug-free successful alternative to biomedical treatment of autism. The Center has documented 60+ children completely recover from autism, PDD-NOS, as well as others who have recovered from Asperger's, dyspraxia, apraxia and other developmental delays with dozens more on the way to recovery. Homeopathy Center of Houston's consistent success and staying power in the field of autism has resulted in regular speaking engagements for the past several years at Autism One, Lyme in Autism, the National Autism Conference, as well as autism conferences in Canada and Australia. Cindy is the mother of 3 adult children, including a son who has fully recovered from Asperger's syndrome. She is the founder and curriculum author for Houston School of Homeopathy and one of five professional homeopaths at Homeopathy Center of Houston.
Lindyl Lanham, DSH-P, BS-Spec.Ed.
vice president/co-founder of Homeopathy Center of Houston, and primary creator of the Houston Homeopathy Method of Sequential Homeopathy for Autism and ASDs. Their method is the original and only sequential homeopathic method worldwide to be designed around the vaccine injury/biomedical/gut-brain model of autism. The Houston Homeopathy Method has recently been featured in the new book Cutting Edge Therapies in Autism, 2010-2011, and Lindyl has co-authored a number of articles that have appeared in several autism magazines including The Autism File and The Autism Perspective, and has been interviewed numerous times for Voice America and Autism One Radio, among others. She is a regular speaker at Autism One, has spoken at the National Autism Conference, as well as the MINDD conference in Australia and the NUPATH conference on homeopathy and autism in Canada. Lindyl worked with autistic children as early as 1972 and continues to focus on autism as her primary specialty. She has seen many children with autism fully recover using the Houston Homeopathy Method under her direction and direct consultation. She is board certified in integrative medicine and is the mother of a son recovered from Tourette syndrome with the Houston Homeopathy Method and natural medicine.
An alternative approach for vaccine injury
Beginning with information concerning issues that can be caused by vaccines, two homeopaths from the Homeopathy Center of Houston will explain how the Houston Homeopathy Method for ASDs can reverse vaccine injury and provide a gentle, complete alternative solution to biomedical treatments and pharmaceuticals. The unique, comprehensive approach employs Sequential Homeopathy to reverse vaccine and environmental damage in the course of reducing toxins, heavy metals, viral and bacterial accumulations from the entire body, including brain tissue. They will also discuss how the method has brought about reduction of strep and its resultant OCD and PANDAS behaviors. As evidence, they will present cases with documented behavioral and cognitive improvements in children with autism. They will additionally include some dietary tips that every parent can implement immediately to improve brain inflammation from dietary factors, through elimination of excitotoxins in the diet.
10:00 - 11:00 am
Mary Coyle, DIHom
Both a homeopath and the director of the Real Child Center in New York City, Mary offers consultation services to parents of children with ASD wishing to utilize homotoxicology and German Biological Medicine. Mary's own child, now 18 and a senior in high school, was one of the first to successfully implement the program back in 1996. Driven by parent demand, Mary and Sandra Stewart from Life-Thyme Solutions created a certification course focusing on the ASD child and homotoxicology. Some of their graduates are now collaborating with other practitioners, including two Defeat Autism Now! doctors. The Real Child Center current employs three freelance practitoners who have either recovered or greatly improved their own ASD child's health using this methodology. The Center works in conjunction with a host of other healthcare practitioners and facilities, and functions collectively in order to gain the best results for each child.
Relating Post-Vaccination Toxicity to the Principles of Homotoxicology
This presentation will include discussion of the benefits of addressing post-vaccination toxicity through homotoxicology. Operating on both an extra- and intracellular level, homotoxicology assists the body in removing these residual stressors that can create roadblocks in the ASD child's healing process. A number of studies have shown that a great number of ASD children suffer from hyper-reactive immune systems when confronted with certain foods and food compounds, in addition to environmental allergens. Could vaccines be one of the culprits behind all of these responses? A vicious cycle of chronic biological stress, keeping a child in a continual state of "wired but tired," makes it nearly impossible to attend in class or even sit still. The mechanics of homotoxicology is geared towards gently eliminating these stressors. As the child's body receives the correct signals to remove their own toxic body burden, the organs and systems begin to relax and, finally, to heal. This presentation will also include some of the latest research on the use of homeopathic nosodes to lessen the shock of vaccines and remove their potentially negative residual effect.
11:00 am - 12 noon

For the past ten years, he has served on the Board of Directors for the Naturopathic Physicians Licensing Exam (NPLEX) as the chair of Microbiology and Immunology. Dr. Ingels' practice focuses on autistic spectrum disorders with special emphasis on chronic immune dysfunction, including allergies, asthma, recurrent or persistent infections, and other genetic or acquired immune problems. He uses diet, nutrients, herbs, homeopathy, and immunotherapy to help his children achieve better health.
The Role of Allergy Desensitization in Autism
Studies show that allergies affect more than 50 million people in the United States and that this number rises each year. Exposure to inhalants, pollens, chemicals and foods can all be triggers for allergic reactions, leading to chronic runny or stuffy nose, asthma, eczema, bowel problems, behavior problems, or mood disorders to name a few. Allergies have been shown to affect any organ system and have been associated with long-term immune deficiency. Evidence suggests children with autism are highly sensitive and therefore more susceptible to the effects of these allergens. We will explore how to identify various allergies/sensitivities and how sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) can effectively desensitize the immune system against the offending allergens. We will also briefly discuss the role of classical homeopathy in the treatment of autism.
