About Me

As a teenager I found ‘The Organon of Rational Medicine ‘ by Dr Samuel Hahnemann in my school library & I realised that I wanted to be a homeopath right then & there! However it was many years before I eventually achieved that ambition.

After A-levels I moved from Northern Ireland to Birmingham (I thought that it, being the UK’s second biggest city, would be ‘hip & happening!’) after a few years I eventually became an electronics engineer in the RAF (Royal Air Force).

I left after serving 6 years, & remembered my desire to be a homeopath all those years before & before I knew it, I’d enrolled at The Centre of Homeopathic Education to begin a 4-year degree course!…at this point I STILL hadn’t tried homeopathy for myself, I just knew that I agreed with Dr Hahnemann’s book that I had carried on my travels wherever I went.

It was early in my studies that I discovered that the ‘mystery illness’ that kept me doing ‘light duties’ in the RAF for over 18-months was actually caused by the cocktail of vaccinations I had had a few months before. This started my investigation into how homeopathy can reverse vaccine damage that eventually led to my interest in the treatment of autism.

I graduated in 2009 & now work full-time as a homeopath. I see people in my clinic in London and over Skype. I also supervise a student clinic, as well as working in one of the homeopathic pharmacies dispensing remedies & giving advice on acute conditions.

I treat a wide range of conditions, but have particular interest in treating children with autism, which I believe to be a reversible condition often caused by toxins (be they from vaccinations, or other medications or sources of heavy-metals).

    Alan, we have been in touch previously , my friend passed my details,to,you.
    My son is suspected of having autism and we are seeing improvements with biomedical interventions.
    I am interested in homeopathy and recently got a book about how to treat children’s common illnesses. I am struggling to understand how it works and for me I need to understand it to do it.
    Can you recommend any websites at all ?

      I really want to do homeopathy for my 6 year old autistic non verbal son.
      I am doing ACC at the moment.
      should I stop that ?after how long can I come to you

  3. Joyce June 20, 2013 at 4:04 pm #

    Dear Alan, My daughter has 4 month old twins. They have received only one vaccine to date. Do you think that they should not receive any vaccinations? And if yes what information can I pass on to her to convince her of this? She will be taking them in a few weeks for their next visit and next vaccine. She is going to space them and only give one at a time. What are your thoughts.

    Thank you for any information you can give me.

    Joyce

    • Alan Freestone June 20, 2013 at 7:53 pm #

      Hi Joyce,

      Lovely to hear from you. I can’t advise you on vaccinations on here, it wouldn’t be appropriate. If your daughter is interested, I would be very happy to talk to her over Skype about the issue.

      It’s a good idea to space them out if she does decide to give them. If you want, get your daughter to email me and we can discuss the matter.

      Kind regards

    Dear Alan, just wanted to send you a note about the good things happening with Jinson. Jinson is our ten yr old son, he started having rages and crying bouts that would last for hours for no apparent reason and nothing would stop them. We went to his pediatrician, allergists, neurologist, psychologists and all they would say was, “Well it’s all because oh his ADHD” I asked numerous doctors could this be autism or PANDAS and all said definitely not. In the meantime our whole life was disrupted and I was ready to have him committed just to have some peace when I came across the PANDAS trial that Alan was doing. I skyped with him for over an hour (which was way more time than I got from any doctor that I had seen so far). He told me that he thought that Jinson suffered from autism and PANDAS, finally something to go on. He recommended 3 homeopathic remedies and we noticed changes immediately. No more rages, no more OCD and he is back to happy loving little boy who doesn’t say he hates everybody and wants to hurt himself. He’s still quirky but I think using homeopathic remedies recommended by Alan will only make him even better. Thank you for giving me back my son and my sanity.

    Hi Alan,
    My son is 5years old and is on the autism spectrum.we have previously used homeopathy along with other biomedical treatments with some improvements. Now he has speech and can communicate his needs only in words but not in sentences. His eye contact is still low and he occasionally has meltdowns and aggression(scratching and biting others). he is in a mainstream class and he enjoys reading and puzzles but he doesn’t play with his peers.Many times,he laughs without reason and itches his genitals.He likes to play by himself,arranging his toys in line, and lie on the floor.he is hyperactive and jumps and flaps his hands when excited.he loves bread,pizza and milk.He insist on feeding himself with his fingers.
    He was born via Ceasarean section due to fetal distress caused by the cord round the neck.He was fully vaccinated and started showing classic autism symptoms after the Mmr vaccine at 15months.He stopped talking at this time.
    we have used homeopathy previously with some improvements and we need someone to guide us through the remaining recovery process.Please help.

    Hi Alan,

    My daughter is 4 years old and she is on autistic spectrum. she is very calm and content. she is non-verbal and her eye contact, attention to the people is very less. she shown her autistic symptoms like spinning, flapping, arranging toys in a line after the MMR vaccination. But these behaviors have been stopped but still she is non-verbal. I heard from people that homeopathy treatment are working and i wanted to try for my daughter as well. Please help.

    Hello Alan,
    My son just turned 4. He started to show autistic symptoms when he was 2. He was born naturally, but I was given antibiotics for Strep bacteria. My son was colicky right from the start, had a cradle cap, rashes all over his body, reflux. His good flora was killed at the very beginning of his life. At the top of that he was fully vaccinated. After his last vaccines, he got coxackie virus at preschool, and right after that he regressed dramatically. We have been using homeopathy to reverse the damage, and see nice progress, but my son is still struggles with irritability, OCD, spinning. His speech and comprehension improved though ( homeopathy is really working for him!). We hit the point where he is not improving at all any more. He also struggles with low muscle tone, balance, mito dysfunction. I cannot wait to talk with you,
    Thank you! Anna

    Hi Alan,
    My daughter was born fine and received all vaccinations until 6 mths and then she had some kind of reaction–she swelled and started vomiting after every bottle, her bowels became loose, and she cried a lot. We tried everything and finally found that adding yogurt to her bottle helped her belly problems (and discontinuing vaccines). At 10 months she became congested and we took her off of formula, but it was too late, she could not walk and lost her hearing for a few months and wound up needing ear tubes at 14 months. She only ate some cheese after that but was consistently constipated. At 5 years she became completely dairy intolerant after daycare made her drink milk–broke out in rash on hands, bumps on cheeks and terrible behavior problems. Over the past two years, I have removed dairy, chocolate, any type of fast food, and red dye from her diet. This year I had to pull her from school because she was in trouble all of the time. She was miserable. I had her tested by a psychologist and she is 18/18 on the ADHD spectrum. She is responding well to Aryuvedic meds for her home study, but she is still unable to really slow down and especially to enjoy other children–she tries to script everyone’s activity. She seems to suffer from nerves on top of it all and her motivation is terrible. Any suggestions for additional supplementation would be so greatly appreciated–she is a brilliant child and I really want her to be happy!
    Sincerely, Katherine

    • Alan Freestone May 21, 2014 at 10:20 am #

      Hello Catherine

      Thank you for sharing your daughter’s story with me. Rather than suggest ‘additional supplementation’, I would suggest that you start her on homeopathic treatment to address the root causes of her issues. Her guts are obviously inflamed, giving her something like Molkosan to try and reduce this inflammation until the causes are addressed may be very helpful. If you would like a chat on Skype, let me know your timezone & I will schedule you in. Good luck with healing your child.
      Kind regards

    Dear Alan,

    We are living in Hungary, and my son is almost three years of age. He is autistic. He has some autistic spectrum disorders, and I would like to healing him with homeophaty.
    I started a clearing programme myself with thuja-silicea-cal.carb.-sulphur (maybe nux v.)and stramonium for the childhood fears. After I think maybe tuberculinum and carc. can be helpfull because my mother had tbc and lot of family members had cancer. Now we are at the silicea stage. He responds very well to homeophaty. Is there any possibilities that you can offer some healing line for us we can pay for it with bank card or paypal or any kind. How can it work?

    Thanks and best regards:

    Hi Alan,
    I have a 3 year old who has not started talking yet, is quite hyper active and we have gotten nowhere with speech and language therapy. We did show him to a paediatrician who specialises in kids with autism and she said his play was not as developed as a three year olds should be and that he is probably one the spectrum. We are still waiting for the nhs to do their panel check up. I was searching for cures for autism and came across your website.
    If you could email me back,I’d like to know exactly how you treat children who are on the spectrum and what your fee is, I would be grateful.
    Best regards,
    A hussain

      Christina,

      my son who is autistic is also 11 years old and we have tried many interventions to date, homeopathy included but difficult core behaviors and health issues persist. I am hoping perhaps you and I could connect and if anything, compare and contrast our experiences? Perhaps help each other navigate the next step in our child’s continuing treatment? I am also looking to work with Alan and in visiting his website and reading caregiver comments, I came across yours and the similarities in our varied treatment approach to date piqued my interest in connecting with you, of course only if you are inclined to also. Thanks.

    Hi Alan
    I know you are very busy with lots of parents reaching out to you. I hope I’ll be fortunate to also get your attention and services
    I’ve got a 3 year old daughter who will be 4 in April. Her delayed speech at 2 was what started raising suspicion about being ASD although most people didn’t “see anything “, being that they weren’t any other issues.
    Fast forward almost 2 years on and we are at a point where we have seen a paediatrician who thinks she’s somewhere on the spectrum but mild. I would love to get in touch with you as the latest of our issues is some strange movement which I suspect to be PANDAS for some reasons
    We are currently doing some biomedical intervention and I think she has responded well to some aspects.

    I’ll really appreciate hearing from you

    Hi,
    I was hoping whether you may be able to offer any help for our son. Mark is 16 in December and is severely autistic with epilepsy.
    Over the year we’ve tried so many thing from gaps diets and nutritional balancing and all sorts of supplements with very little effect.
    We currently have a local homeopath and Mark has made some small improvements but our journey via homeopathy has not yet brought about any big improvements. We have being doing cease and classical homeopathy for 19 months. We have detoxed his vaccines plus amoxycillin.
    Mark suffers from really bad rigidity and ocd which she has not addressed and at present his ocd is getting worse.
    I have mentioned strep to her and pandas but she is not an asd specialist so has not wanted to explore this saying that things may improve as we move through the layers.
    Maybe dealing with Pandas is not the protocol for Mark but I was hoping that you may be able to clarify this for us.
    Mark is medicated with Lamictal for epilepsy but still has seizures mainly absence but he has had at least 6 grand mals whilst doing homeopathy.
    I feel that we are running out of time and don’t want to medicate him for ocd or his aggressive behaviour but it is becoming a struggle now for us all.
    I look forward to hearing from you and will be happy to supply any further information you may need.

    Best wishes

    Hi Alan. I have been experiencing 24/7 vertigo, balance problems, fatigue and pain for over 4 yrs. Have tried so many doctors and numerous treatments. Diagnosed energetically with lyme, EBV, coinfections, strep, Marcons and brain inflammation. Also have Hashimotos. I am 55 yrs young. I have been using homeopathy for over a yr with 2 different practitoners. I have seen some progress but it is very slow and my vertigo is still awful. Can you help me? Also my son has some of the same pathogens plus metals and was diagnosed at 2 yrs with ASD. We were both exposed to mold also. He has made a ton of progress with DAN treatments but is very sick mainly with stomach/bowel issues, fatigue, dizziness etc. Can you help with his condition? Thanks

  26. Shane September 19, 2016 at 5:54 pm #

    Hi Alan,
    My 3 year old son has been diagnosed with HFA. His main issues are stimming and fixation on shapes, lack of expressive speech, unable to follow a routine at daycare, tantrums and bit of agression. Other than some conventional therapies we have not started him on any medication. I believe in homeopathy, got benefited from it personally. I also know that finding a right homeopath and remedy is very crucial. I see that you are extensive experience in treating children on ASD spectrum. Since every kid is different on ASD, Can homeopathy help my child? Do you mind sharing any success resolving any issues similar to my Son’s.

    • Alan Freestone September 23, 2016 at 1:13 pm #

    Hello Alan,
    My 5 year old son was diagnosed with ASD, global developmental delay, behaviour and Sensory integration disorder. He was doing well up on till 18months when he suddenly regressed. Before then he had learnt to count to 10 , he walked at 9months; he could say daddy, mummy eat etc. then all of a sudden he became displaying the need to move continuously eg by running around in nursery; he would throw things (at people), show no interest in imaginative play, his speech regressed.
    At his 2.5 year assessment they picked up speech and developmental delay and referred us to SALT and a Paediatrician. It was this year when he turned 5 and at the point of permanent exclusion in Reception class he was given the ASD diagnosis. He is described as being aggressive following his own agenda, enjoying assaulting others (he laughed when something he threw hit someone).
    Please can you help my son regain his full normal healthy cheerful self?

  28. Svitlana December 3, 2016 at 6:10 pm #

    Dear Alan,

    We have signed up for the first consultation with you, but it is almost two months away. Could you recommend something to start with while we are waiting for the appointment? Our son is 15 years old, vaccine damaged, non-verbal, with severe OCDs, grand-mal seizures, acute headaches, and many other symptoms of severe autism. We just do not want to waste these two months.
    THANK YOU.

    • Alan Freestone December 7, 2016 at 6:12 pm #

      Hello Svitlana

      It would not be appropriate for me to recommend something for your son before I take the case, it is too complex.

      I’m sure we can help him once we have the appointment.

  30. Angel March 28, 2017 at 4:49 pm #

    Hi Alan, I have a son with Autism (9 years old now), when we got his diagnosis at age 2.5 he was completely non-verbal. Mom went through pregnancy stress and delivery stress and had been given pintocin and epidural which in turn caused baby’s heart rate to drop and had been delivered via c-section. He received all the vaccines till age 3, multiple vaccines in each visit. He started having recurrent ear infections after antibiotic rounds when sick with viral infection at 11 month old. He started showing some of the autistic symptoms after vaccines (which we didn’t know about back then) at 3 months and 6 months old when he got high fever after these vaccines.

    We did biomed protocols, gut healing with diet which helped in some ways and improved behaviors and physical health. After which he started having words and very few sentences (which seems robotic). Will your protocol help him get more speech (in sentences), functional language and better cognition?
    Thanks!

    • Alan Freestone April 18, 2017 at 7:58 pm #

      From the sound of your son’s case, I think that homeopathy will benefit him. I can’t guarantee we’ll get full recovery, but that’s always what I’m aiming for. To book an appointment with me, please use this link: http://www.calendly.com/alanfreestone
