I read this book just after it came out, and it is one of the books I have read in recent years that have really encouraged me to "think outside the box".

I have Asperger's myself, and by the time I read this book, I had started working with someone who has Asperger's quite severely. After reading the case studies in this book of people with Asperger's who were very difficult cases before receiving certain treatments, but changed dramatically after these treatments, I started to wonder if the difficult case whom I was working with would benefit from these treatments. It just so happened that when I was reading this book, I was already getting NAET treatments to eliminate some of my allergies (I found out about NAET treatments from other sources), so I asked the naturopath who was giving me my NAET treatments if he knew of anybody in Ottawa who gives homeopathic treatments. He then gave me the name and phone # of a homeopath whom he knew, and then, I contacted him, and asked him if he treated autism. He told me that he did, so I then told the mother of the Asperger client I work with about him, and then she proceeded to take her to him.

After my client started getting treatments from this homeopath, I started getting treatments from him as well. Even before I started getting homeopathic treatments, my Asperger symptoms were not as severe as those of my client, but I still wanted them to be even less severe! Why have Asperger symptoms (even mild ones) if you don't have to? Eh? I believe that I am further ahead now than I would be if I hadn't "thought outside of the box", and this is one of the books that has encouraged me to "think outside the box"!

homeopathy has been a lifesaver for my asperger's sons Sept. 11 2005
By J. Maxson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a desparate last measure I tried homeopathy for my two sons with Asperger's. I no longer worried about how 'kooky' it would seem because I was desparate for help. I visited Dr. Riechenberg-Ullman with my sons on the recommendation of one of my student's parents (because of my boys' diagnoses I left the university setting and an adjunct position and became a special ed teacher).

I have found that this homeopathic treatment has totally changed their lives and destinies. My boys are now honors students in mainstream classes with a multitude of activities and social relationships. I urge anyone with a child with this diagnosis to give this book a look. It has been the turning point in my sons' and my life.

A Gem for Professionals and Non-professionals Alike! Nov. 17 2005
By Patricia Kay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am a homeopath, and I have felt daunted by the increase in the number of debilitating mental and emotional illnesses that seem to be growing in our society. By anyone's standard, they are hard to treat. So, I was very glad to read this book, and I was very impressed for several reasons: the authors, who are all renowned and respected homeopaths within the profession, give a good overview of the current understanding and mainstream medical approach to these diseases; they give a good and reasonable idea of what can be expected with homeopathic treatment; they present several cases which are interesting and inspiring to both homeopaths and parents of children who may benefit from homeopathic treatment; they give an overview of other complementary treatments as well as other resources and support for families that are looking for help; and they reflect on possible causes for the increase in these syndromes, while focusing mainly on giving relief to those who suffer now. I found the book informative, well-documented and quite useful as a professional. But it strikes me as rare that the authors have been able to come up with a book that is also understandable and useful to non-professionals as well. They didn't use jargon or hype in presenting the information, nor were there any promises of over-night cures. At the same time, the reader will surely share their delight on reading about the young people who emerged from the prison of isolation and tormenting behaviors. I found myself feeling refreshed by the consistent tone of kindness and compassion for both patients and their families that permeates the entire book. The clear focus is maintained of presenting very important information in a practical, thorough and yet gracious manner. It is truly a gift to professional and lay people alike. I found myself feeling inspired by my fellow homeopaths. I also felt renewed and encouraged by these good doctors as they remind us all about the capacity of the human organism to become healthy again even from very serious and deep-seated pathologies.

Homeopathic guide for ASD Feb. 25 2008
By Sun Mi Kim - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Homeopathy is often mentioned in alternative treatments for ASD and autism, but usually it's only glancingly mentioned.

This book fills in more detail and understanding to what Homeopathy is and how it specifically relates to these special needs children. Most of the book is filled with sample cases (some actual cases and some that are amalgams of different cases used to illustrate specific tendencies). A couple of times, I found myself crying because I related to the experiences that the parents and children have. . .and other cases which, although not applicable to my family, were interesting to read.

I appreciated that it wasn't preachy. It takes into consideration the enormous exhaustion experienced by parents of high-needs children, and the ways that subtle (and not-so-subtle) family dynamics often shift when one or two family members find balance within themselves.

Both uplifting and useful May 3 2006
By Shari Maser - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Homeopathy is an alternative treatment for autism/Asperger Syndrome. Homeopathy in general is strongly supported by scientific evidence; as a specific treatment for autism spectrum disorders, it is strongly supported by anecdotal evidence from kids who have been treated and their parents, doctors, and teachers. Furthermore, homeopathy has virtually no complications or adverse side effects.

You will definitely be interested to learn more about this treatment if you are the parent, grandparent, teacher, child care provider, or pediatrician for a child with autism/Asperger Syndrome. Luckily, this informational tome is available to explain the who, what, when, where, why and how of homeopathic care for these children. The authors provide several case studies, lovingly presented, along with clear answers to the above questions. A Drug-Free Approach to Asperger Syndrome and Autism: Homeopathic Care for Exceptional Kids is both uplifting and useful!
