"All the concerns that I had with my
son when I contacted Kari have been resolved
through homeopathic care.
The wealth of knowledge I have learned has not only aided my son on his journey
to healing, but it has improved the health of my entire family."
October of 2012, I was first introduced the world of homeopathy when
I heard a one hour online talk by Kari J.
Kindem, CFHom on the basics of homeopathy.
I was totally hooked!
I grew up in a home with a father who is an
allopathic physician and a mother a nurse. The holistic world
of medicine was not something we discussed over family meals. I became
interested in natural health when I was having my three sons. I wanted my
deliveries to be drug-free, so I sought out a mid-wife for my last two
births. This was the first stepping-stone to get my family where we are
My middle son, who is currently 6½ years
old, was the first of my sons to begin working with
Kari . He always developed slower
than his older and younger brothers. He was chronically constipated
at the age of one when I stopped breastfeeding, walked at 14 months,
began speech therapy at 20 months and continued until the age of 4.
He also experienced generalized low muscle tone.
After a very thorough and comprehensive
intake, we began our work with Kari in
January 2013 for chronic homeopathic care. Through the detailed intake process, Kari
described my son as vaccine impaired and having
PANDAS symptoms; although, he had no formal medical diagnosis. She also had
us test his stool, ASO titers, Vitamin D level and for the MTHFR gene mutations. My son
tested positive for one of the MTHFR mutations, which makes detoxification challenging. He was low on Vitamin D levels and
also had abnormalities in his stool sample.
Through traditional homeopathic care and several adjuncts
such as vitamin
supplementation, placement of a home water
system to remove fluoride, my son has made incredible progress.
We have observed an increase in his awareness in his surroundings,
decreased hesitation and anxiety when approaching novel situations, improved
muscle tone, which has allowed for gains with sports and academics,
sleeping through the night without waking, and lastly, resolution
with constipation and nightly bedwetting.
All the concerns that I had with my
son when I contacted Kari have been resolved
through homeopathic care. The wealth of knowledge I have learned
has not only aided my son on his journey to healing, but it has improved the
health of my entire family. I am forever grateful to
Kari for the wonderful care she has provided

is a story of a PANDAS recovery in a young boy
who also had speech delays. He was vaccinated
and had a history of antibiotic use for ear infections and other acutes. His
recovery with homeopathic medicine took place over a period of about 15 months
in my practice.
PANDAS is an acronym for
infections. It is also known as
This term describes a hypothesis that there are a subset of
children with rapid onset of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and/or tic
disorders and these symptoms are caused by Group A beta-hemolytic
streptococcal (GABHS) infections.
With PANDAS, children can have dramatic
and sudden OCD exacerbations and tic disorders following streptococcus
infections. The abnormal behaviors come on suddenly and are often overt and
recognized. PANDAS has been associated with a wider range of related
behaviors. Affected children can have any combination of the following symptoms: ADHD
type symptoms, anorexia, anxiety, bedwetting, depression, germ phobias, mood
swings, OCD, tantrums, repetitive motions or noises, motor tics, anger, rage and sensory issues.
