1 year classical homeopathy update


Recommended Posts

I am sooooo happy to hear of a success story using a homeopathy treatment. I hate the thought of treating my son with antibiotic after antibiotic and possibly IVIGs. We are about to start the whole process of treating him again due to his most severe symtoms returning after a year of tolerable symptoms....never totally in remission but during that time I thought it was not possible. I also live in Florida, I believe we spoke on the phone once when my son first began this nightmare. You helped me a great deal and I can never thank you enough. We were able to be part of a study Dr. Murphy was doing and that pretty much convinced us of his PANDAs diagnosis.

 

I would like to talk to you or read your blog if you can give me the website. Homeopathic treatment for Pandas makes so much more sense to me that I would like to try it before the standard route. So I'm assuming the regime you all are on calms or treats the tics and OCD symptoms as well?

 

Thanks,

 

Trish

 

Trish, I would be happy to talk to you again, send me a PM and I'll give you my cell number :) Sorry it took me so long to get back to this discussion...

hello,

 

 

 

Called the office of Angela Lemke. So its basically 600 plus dollars for the first appointment and the remedies. Was a little concerned since it almost seems like I am trying to take advantage of your price. If she stands by her work , gets the job done well who can really put any price on that. I just am having a hard time wrapping my head around the inflated price. I am a Relationship Life Coach. I help many, many people and have a waiting list. i know I could double my price but choose not to since it would be a hardship to others. I just wish her upfront charge was more reasonable until a trust was developed between client and patient. With all that being said I think I will still proceed forward

Hi Abbe,

I understand how you feel about the cost, but I can tell you that they are located in the heart of manhattan and they work out of their offices (not their homes) in order to maintain a professional practice even though most of their work is done via skype. I have been to their office, it is nothing extravegant, but it is manhattan nonetheless.

Also, you really do get a lot for your money. Angelica will do follow-up urgent phone calls in between appts, she will do frequent emails at no cost and often times she will prescribe a remedy for the mom and manage her case as well for free, as long as it's not a very complicated case (cancer, MS, stuff like that). The reason she does this is b/c the mom does a much better job managing the kids' cases when her head is in the right place, and I can tell you from experience that this is very true and I am a completely changed individual, mentally and physically, after being managed by angelica. The other thing is if you have multiple children she will often times try to squeeze everyone into the follow-up visits so you are not constantly having appts.

My point is that she really does her best to accommodate and get the best results she can. And personally I am spending a fraction of what I used to on medical care for my whole family. We rarely need to see a doctor, and when we do it is for CYA purposes, school notes, etc.

Stephanie,

 

I got over the cost issue and made an appointment after speaking with them. I had to cancel because My father took very ill, almost lost him and I was a red hot mess. I am going to use her and reschedule in the next few weeks. I am excited. Nicks dr here just made me a remedy with his own spit mixed with I don't know what. He is actually doing wonderfully on it. Never the less I want to us Angela and appreciate the referral

 

Thanks again

Abbe, that is so fascinating about making the remedy from the saliva. I have wanted to try that at times when I am lost and am not sure what to give my kids LOL! Also, some other moms are toying with the idea of making remedies out of the kids'...wait for it...feces! Many kids suffer from intestinal infections as a result of the overuse of antibiotics killing off the good bacteria. Many of us use "bowel nosodes" to target the bacteria which show up in stool samples, but we are all wondering if it would be a much better fit to just use the actual bacteria coming out of their guts. I know this is sounding really gross to anyone reading this, but I have heard of success stories from this. By the time it is diluted down enough, there is not any bacteria left, only the "energy" which acts to treat the infections...

 

Please let me know how things work out with Angelica. I have people contacting me out of the blue all the time and thanking me for helping them find angelica, but there are a few who give up pretty quickly and never get the benefit...for some kids it takes persistance. Also, some of the strep strains that come through are absolute BEASTS to conquer, while others are a breeze. But even the difficult strains are doable when you know what you're doing. Best of luck to you!!

on that note, just to add another self curing process, i'm sure you have heard about people drinking their own urine. the idea, if i remember correct, that you are actually illiminating what your body needs in combination of putting back the things you used that are good...i'm sure i got that right.

drinking it has cured everything from ms to allergies to what ever. this was something i read a couple years ago and there was also something on tv around the same time, i think

i'm pretty sure it wasn't tinkatured

Hi guys,

 

 

It's Abbe, my dad remains pretty ill so I have been "nursing" him night and day. Nick remains on Azithromycin, supplements and the saliva homeopathic drops. He is about 95% great. Looking to book with Angela as soon as I am not that anxious about my dad being more or less life and death. Just don't think the timing makes sense. The one thing I am thankful for is Dr. Chung can test the various remedies with Nicholas' body to see if Angela prescribes the right remedy.

 

 

Talk soon,

 

Abbe

Sorry to reply so late... No, we have not tested titers again. We basically have not been to the doc since we started homeopathy. I do not know about carriage, it would be interesting to find out. In our family it seems we all have a tendency to get strep. When people start acting crazy, I know there is strep around! But I am starting the younger kids with a local homeopath and hoping we can stay off of antibiotics. My "original" PANDAS is now 14. He is doing well and will still react but between the nosode and the constitutional we can nip it in the bud. Sometimes I feel a little uneasy and get that "what if" feeling. If I had the means to have follow-ups with Angelica more often, I'm sure things would be even better, but we are managing just fine for now.

We were all soooo burned out from doctors appointments, pill taking, mounting medical bills. Homeopathy basically gave us all our lives back. I am forever grateful to Stephanie for sharing her story.

 

Someone mentioned the high price. Our local homeopath charges $200 per hour, so $600 for a 3-hour consult sounds about right to me. Going to a specialist (especially if you have to travel) will cost about the same. Also, many classical homeopaths will NOT tell you the name of the remedy they give you, so you are basically stuck going back to them. Angelica is very open and you are free to order your own remedies (which are very inexpensive even when ordering from England!), so we've been able to manage on our own for quite a while.

 

Hope everyone finds their way to health, whatever path they may choose!

 

God bless,

 

Isabel

 

 

 

We use Angelica Lemke who is located in NYC, but she does skype appts so you don't have to travel.

You don't have to go off all meds to do homeopathy but they do tend to work against each other. Antibiotics, steroids and especially psych meds tend to be a real issue, however you can slowly wean off of them with the remedies on board to support the process. i'm not gonna lie, taking my boys off antibiotics and sending them out into the world "uncovered" was the hardest thing in the world, I was on pins and needles. But we were in a desperate situation with the antibiotics not working and causing damage, so for me my back was against the wall and I really had no choice. This is something you have to be ready for. And I highly suggest the book Impossible Cure by Amy Lansky before making any decisions.

 

 

Stephanie2 and MatisMom, have you done any blood work to see if any of the titers are still high? I'm just curious, because I wonder if they are getting relief, but not getting rid of the infection, and putting them into a carrier-state.

Hi Stephanie! I came across your post while searching for PANDAS/ Strep/ Homeopathy. I was given the name of Pierre Fontaine by a friend for my 7yo son. I was trying to get more information on successes/ reactions, etc., but didn't find much. Then I searched more generally and found this message board/ group. I believe Angelica Lemke and P. Fontaine work together. I know you and another poster see Angelica. Do you have an opinion on Pierre F? Is Angelica more specialized with PANDAS? Is she easy to work with? I need to feel comfortable before I start, and before I spend the money.

Thanks-Sym

I think you would get similar success with both but I think many moms really like Angelica's bedside manner and also she is not one bit afraid to be aggressive with pandas when it hits. I have to be honest, I'm not really sure what Pierre's approach is these days with it. Also Angelica is much less expensive and probably has less of a wait, although I'm not sure about that either. They are both wonderful people, truly.

 

I'll send you a PM with info about joining some homeopathy groups so you can chat with other moms...
