Homeopathy can be very effective for a deeper permanent improvement in patients with autism.

The results of the two case studies below are from patients of local homeopath Sujata Owens. They are consistent with results commonly seen with autistic patients in the homeopathic profession.

Cannabis can also work very well in conjunction with homeopathy for autism and is especially effective for palliation.


Jordan was a 6 year old boy suffering from autism. His mother reported that he suffered from bouts of “wild and violent” behavior. He also exhibited repetitive and fixated behaviors and he did not interact with others. He frequently had to be removed from the school room because of his disruptive outbursts.

After using homeopathic treatments for 30 days, Jordan’s mom reported, “Jordan is staying in his therapy center classroom most of the day. Now, he sits calmly, pays attention, and follows directions—it’s remarkable.”

60 days after starting homeopathy, Jordan’s mom was beaming. “I am thrilled to tell you that Jordan is in a regular public-school classroom now, and he no longer requires the classroom aide or other daily therapy! He likes school, does well at it, and even talks to me about it. None of this would have happened before we began using homeopathic treatments. He is behaving well at home, and his outbursts are extremely rare now.”

Jordan’s mom happily reported that Jordan is doing very well. While he still had tendencies towards repetitive behaviors and interests, they were much reduced.

Homeopathy can also be successfully used for PTSD patients. Homeopathy is an unusual medical modality. Homeopathic remedies are administered in the form of a medicated sugar pellet or a drop of liquid that can be taken by mouth. In PTSD cases they work a bit like debugging programs that help us improve our perception of reality by removing the “bugs” introduced by stressful events and allow us to become more functional. It may sound too incredible, but this 200-year-old system of medicine has survived multiple attempts to discredit it, and its practitioners are now more numerous than ever. In fact, it now boasts a large body of medical research that proves its effectiveness as compared to placebo (a sugar pill). Many patients with depression and anxiety can be permanently relieved of their complaints with a single well-chosen homeopathic remedy. Patients will only need to be on homeopathic remedies until they achieve their desired state of health, so in most cases it is not a life-long treatment.


At age two, Randy began to exhibit common signs of autism such as a failure to respond to social cues, obsessive behaviors with toys, and a lack of awareness about his surroundings. Randy did not vocalize until age six, and his mom described his developing behaviors as overactive, violent at times, dangerously fearless, and mentally dull.

When he started homeopathic treatment, nine-year-old Randy did not want to speak; his mom had to prompt him to say “hi.” Randy still did not actively communicate, except when his mom encouraged him, and then he would only make a throaty noise. He was fearless, had bouts of violence, restlessness and exhibited an overall “dullness”. He seemed oblivious to others, played alone, and failed to respond when spoken to.

Randy’s mom hoped that homeopathy would help Randy act more calmly, communicate without being prompted, and maintain better focus, especially with his studies.

At Randy’s first follow-up appointment, his mom said, “The remedy had an almost immediate calming effect on him.” By day two, he was “so good, it was like magic.” At school, his teacher reported that he was less “hyper.” At home, Randy was more relaxed and had fewer temper tantrums. Overall, Randy’s mom said that he looked and seemed happier, and he smiled a lot.

Randy’s mom reported that he was calmer, more focused, and more affectionate. He had fewer temper tantrums and showed less aggression and was more intellectually active with schoolwork and homework. It sounded like the dullness had begun to lift! Although Randy had said a lot more words during the past month, his speech was still unclear. Also, Randy’s mom said that he seemed unsettled if he was not busy and moving. Overall, this was a good report.

One month later Randy was speaking more clearly to his mom. She proudly shared that Randy was now playing and running “just like other kids.” He had been even more affectionate with his family during the past month. Randy’s temper tantrums and aggressive episodes were greatly reduced.

Randy’s mom was very happy with how homeopathy had helped Randy. He was still receiving extra therapy at school for communication skills but he had continued to make steady progress in social interactions, with schoolwork, and with speech. He was also much calmer than before homeopathic treatment. She was especially relieved that Randy no longer took dangerous chances or acted violently and aggressively.

Within one month of starting homeopathic treatment, both Jordan and Randy showed noticeable improvement with academic, social, and behavioral issues. Further positive changes continued to unfold as time progressed. Jordan and Randy are just two examples of the many children with autism spectrum disorder who make great strides thanks to homeopathic treatment.



Dr. Mirman says, “Medical cannabis is great for symptom relief, but when treating autism, I would not stop with cannabis. In many cases better long-term improvement can be achieved over time by using cannabis in tandem with homeopathy. This same thinking applies to many other conditions as well including: inflammatory gut disease, auto-immune conditions, depression, anxiety and PTSD, etc. While cannabis or other biochemical modalities like drugs or supplements can provide relief, homeopathy often gives slower but deeper and more lasting improvement.”
