Three Cases of Severe Obsessive Compulsive Disorder In Children

A Homeopathic Medicine Case Report

by Susanne Saltzman, MD

Three children with severe anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) were successfully treated with homeopathy. Two of these children had not responded to a number of pharmaceutical drugs. Each patient received a completely different homeopathic medicine based on his or her unique individual symptomatology according to the law of similars. Now twenty years later, two of these patients are young adults who continue to lead healthy, productive lives free of OCD as a result of homeopathic treatment. The third patient continues to remain asymptomatic three years post homeopathic treatment.

Postpartum Thyroiditis/Graves’ Disease in a 36-Year-Old Female

A Homeopathic Medicine Case Report

by Susanne Saltzman, MD

Graves’ disease occurs in 0.1-0.4% of postpartum women as a complication of postpartum thyroiditis. Because pharmaceutical drugs (thionamides such as methimazole and propylthiouracil) are only 20-30% effective in controlling the disease, thyroid ablation with radioactive iodine or thyroidectomy is often necessary resulting in lifelong thyroid hormone replacement requiring frequent doctors’ visits and monitoring. This case documents the rapid and complete resolution of Graves’ disease in a 36-year-old postpartum woman with a homeopathic remedy based on the law of similars.

Acute Thyrotoxicosis/Graves’ Disease in a Type 1 Diabetic

A Homeopathic Medicine Case Report

by Susanne Saltzman, MD

Acute thyrotoxicosis is a systemic potentially life threatening condition that occurs as a result of excess production and release of the thyroid hormones triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4). This results in a hypermetabolic state that is often characterized by marked weight loss, anxiety, restlessness, tremors, tachycardia, diarrhea, and heat intolerance. If left untreated, death can occur from acute heart failure and/or pulmonary edema. Homeopathic medicine can offer an extremely effective and safe treatment for acute thyrotoxicosis and/or Graves’ disease without the side effects of pharmaceutical drugs. This case report documents the rapid resolution of the disease with a single dose of a homeopathic remedy in a young man with type 1 diabetes.

Homeopathy and a Severe Case of Fibromyalgia and Gastroparesis

by Susanne Saltzman, MD

A case of fibromyalgia and gastroparesis is reported; the patient also had a history of having suffered physical and sexual abuse as a child, leaving her emotionally flat and distant. She had a ‘frozen,’ staring expression that Dr. Saltzman has come to realize after extensive clinical experience as consistent with the remedy Papaver somniferum, especially when the past history contains a frightful experience, be it an abusive past or, as in the case of many children she’s seen, surgical trauma. Other Papaver somniferum characteristics are a dissociated or numb state, mental fogginess, high tolerance to pain, inordinate sleepiness.

Homeopathy and Lyme Disease

Summer is Prime Time for Lyme
Homeopathy Helps Late-stage Lyme Disease Sufferers-when Conventional Treatment Does Not

by Susanne Saltzman, MD

Ah, summer—the season that many of us anticipate all year long! It’s the time for outdoor fun, whether that’s picnicking in the park, camping in the woods, or just relaxing on a chair in the backyard. Unfortunately, however, a dangerous pest is lurking in the grasses, shrubs, and leaves of some of our favorite summertime locales just waiting for a person or animal to pass by. It’s the black-legged deer tick (Ixodes), and it wants to suck your blood.

Homeopathy and A Case of Lyme Encephalitis

Homeopathy Heals a Boy with Lyme Encephalitis
“It’s a miracle!”

by Susanne Saltzman, MD

Although the following case is one of the earliest in my career, the main rule that I applied for finding the simillimum (i.e., the most appropriate homeopathic remedy) still applies today: “treat the patient, not the disease.” This case demonstrates the awesome power of the simillimum to cure even deep-seated, serious disease.

Homeopathy and Infectious Mononucleosis in Teens

Teens and the “Kissing Disease”
Knocked out by mononucleosis? Speed up the healing with homeopathic treatment!

by Susanne Saltzman, MD

Being a teenager can be pretty stressful. (Though, frankly, being a parent of a teen is probably worse!) Besides the pressures of keeping up with homework, school sports, and peer relationships, many teens are dealing with fluctuating hormones, mood swings, poor eating habits, and late night bedtimes. All these things can have a negative impact on immune systems, making teens especially vulnerable to a viral illness called infectious mononucleosis—or “mono,” for short. Known as “the kissing disease” because it usually spreads via saliva, mono can debilitate a teen for a few weeks—or a few months.
