This is a case of a 4 year old girl with severe developmental delays. She had limited eye contact, a brief attention span and a blank stare throughout the evaluation. She was non-verbal. She would communicate her needs and wants by vocalizing in open vowel sounds when reaching for desired objects. She would shriek. She did not respond to her name being called. She would mouth almost every toy or object offered to her. She would pick on her lip till it bled. She liked to be naked. She also made several attempts to escape in the meeting. Her toes were contracted while walking. She was born full term via a vaginal delivery, weighing 7lbs, 7oz. There were no complications with the pregnancy labor and delivery. As an infant, she was bottle fed. She received twenty vaccines between 2005-2006. The mother noticed she was more withdrawn, aloof, stopped communicating, and lost eye contact after the vaccines. The mother expressed feeling very fearful during pregnancy.
The remedies chosen for this case were Hyoscyamus 30c, 200c, Medorrhinum 30c, and Thuja 30c. I chose Hyoscyamus based on the rubrics: Delusion, of fancy illusions; Escape, attempts to; Aversion, to answer: Refuses to answer; Abstraction of Mind; Picking at bedclothes; Shrieking; Jumping; Naked, wants to be; Jealousy, Sensitive to noise. I used Medorrhinum when Hyoscyamus would stop working, for the miasmatic block. I chose Thuja based on the fact that 20 vaccinations were given in her first 18 months. After the vaccinations she stopped all speech, slipped into her own world, lost eye contact and could not comprehend. Thuja was used for loss of speech after vaccinations and development arrested from Vaccinations.
After the Hyoscyamus 30c was administered she was more cooperative, slept better, eye contact improved dramatically, she was more engaging with improvements in speech and less shrieking. After using Medorrhinum 30c and Thuja 30c she started becoming more social, more cooperative and her verbal skills were increasing. After Hyoscyamus was repeated, she became more verbal (60 words) and more affectionate. This case was followed for 11 months.
During her healing process she did break out with skin rashes (exteriorization) and showed anger when she didn’t get her way (vital force fighting back). I would like to mention that her mother’s commitment to her daughter’s treatment has been instrumental in her healing.
