On This Case
By The Treating Homeopath
Kari J. Kindem,
CFHom, Classical Homeopath
This is a story of a woman, age
53, who recovered from a medical diagnosis of fibromyalgia and Crohn's disease. She also suffered from allergies and hypothyroidism. Her recovery took about 15 months
with homeopathic care. She was very cooperative and urgently wanted to
improve her health after many years of suffering from severe pain, chronic
fatigue, periods depression and bowel discomfort.
Overview of the Case
This woman was vaccinated as a requirement
for her Air Force military job for 8 years in middle age.
These vaccinations exposed her to heavy metals like mercury and
aluminum as well as other toxic vaccine adjuvants.
Vaccinations will suppress and
shock the immune
system. They also contain harmful viruses and add foreign
RNA and DNA because vaccines are grown on such things as aborted
fetal tissue or on sacrificed animal kidneys such as from a pig, dog
or monkey, etc. Therefore, as a Homeopath, I believe
are inherently dangerous because they shock, alter, overwhelm and
weaken the immune system.

to coming to homeopathic care, this client was seen by several
medical professionals who prescribed a long series of many, suppressive allopathic
drugs for many years that only masked her symptoms. After
years of suffering, she wanted to recover using the safe, alternative and natural healing with
homeopathy and was referred to me by a friend whose family I had
also treated in my practice.
This woman was prescribed many medications in the past 25 years from
her doctors including: Motrin, Zoloft, Cymbalta, Flonase, Nasonex,
Ambien, Lunesta, Prednisone, Albuterol, Singular, Symbicort,
Synthoid (thyroid replacement) to name some. Under the
supervision of her doctor, she slowly weaned off all of her
medications as she was able to and as her homeopathic care and recovery
progressed. She had also been on birth control
pills for many years and this significantly challenged her thyroid
and endocrine system function.
Iodine Testing For Thyroid Health:
urine loading test was done with
FFP Labs to
look at the level of iodine deficiency and the saturation
level of the client's thyroid. This client's thyroid saturation level was
significantly lower than expected in someone her age indicating
Vitamin D Testing:
This client also did blood testing for
Vitamin D and was significantly deficient. Daily
supplementation of Vitamin D that also
contained K1/K2 was added in order to increase her levels to
adequate and protectice levels, which in my practice is a goal 80
ng/ml and a minimum healthy range of 50 ng/ml.
Genetic Testing for MTHFR:
A MTHFR gene was suspected in her case, so
she did MTHFR
genetic testing via saliva. She tested positive for
one copy of MTHFR A1298 (homozygous). This means
essentially that her
methylation (detoxification) capacity was challenged
to by about 20%. Although this is not as dramatic as
other genetic combinations, it did make it harder for her to detoxify
from heavy metals as well as other environmental toxins and
exposures in general.
The case was taken and analyzed using classical
homeopathy methods with my full homeopathic intake process.
involved taking a full life history, complete medical
history and a generational family medical history. I also obtained detailed
descriptions of the client's personality, likes and dislikes, mental symptoms, body thermals, weather preferences,
sleep patterns and food desires, sensitivities and/or aversions.
Social personality and any other unusual symptoms (which we
refer to as SRP's in homeopathy which stands for "strange,
rare or peculiar") were also identified. These "head-to-toe"
symptoms are referred to as the "totality of symptoms". All of these were all gathered for a detailed chronic case intake, which is
necessary in all good homeopathic prescribing. The strongest
symptoms for her case were repertorized using professional homeopathic software. My intake process for
this case was very thorough and is the same process, procedure
and information that I
carefully gather for each chronic
case in my practice. I combine several methods of case analysis to determine
the best remedy to open each case with.
Every single case in homeopathic prescribing is
unique, and that uniqueness is what is treated. There is no
"one size fits all" or protocol of remedies I give for any medical
diagnosis. I always treat the person with the
diagnosis, not the name of the diagnosis.
Remedy Dosing Method and Remedies Used:
is not unusual for me to need more than one potency of the
opening remedy and/or to need more than one remedy for a complex case like this to continue
to make deep and lasting progress. All remedies were dosed in water
according to Hahnemann's 5th and 6th Organon methods. All remedies
were also dosed in ascending potencies (low to high) using
C scale and LM scale potencies.
her health and organ function, she
was put on a series of homeopathic remedies
as indicated as her case evolved. I started at a low potency with
water dosing and went gradually to
ascending potencies. I also used a
homeopathic nosode and a
bowel nosode as an
intercurrent remedy, in ascending potencies.
Acute illnesses were treated
if necessary with the appropriate acute remedies during
her entire period of care.
management involved email communication on a weekly basis and
formal follow-ups were done every month via skype throughout the
15 month period of homeopathic care.
Ongoing care and progress was supported several nutritional supplements
for gut dysbiosis
were used including
Vitamin D, Vitamin C
and a few other supplements.
A hig quality
the correct forms of both
methylfolate and methylcobalamin
(recommended for those with MTHFR mutations), as
well as iodine.
The supplements helped to make up for any nutritional deficits and
optimize her body's detoxification functions along with homeopathy.
cell salts were also used.
This client also did a series
of liver flushes in order to
deeply cleanse the liver and improve liver and digestive health by removing
many unhealthy gallstones in the process.
The client was instructed to avoid all
fluoride, including in her drinking water, dental treatments of
tooth paste and to install a water filter in her home if her city
water was fluoridated to help remove fluoride, chlorine and other
toxic chemicals in city water supplies.
Diet, Exercise and Sleep:
A gluten free, dairy free
and red meat free diet, no coffee, sodas or caffeinated drinks
were recommended for this client in
order to dramatically reduce the level of gut acidity for the
first several months of care.
The client was instructed to exercise moderately with walking and
aerobic exercise at least 3 days per week. She was to be in bed
and sleeping by 10:00-11:00pm nightly, getting a minimum
of 7 to 8 hours of sleep per night. She was also instructed to drink
half her weight in filtered water as ounces per day (for example,
pounds would be 60 oz. of water drunk during the day). She was also
instructed to use 1/2 tsp. of unrefined
sea salt on
her food on a daily basis.
in immune system health, pain reduction and wellness were steady and
began in the first month, progressing forward by each month, over the
15 month period of chronic care. Her
overall energy continued to improve as she detoxified and her
physical, mental and emotional state

Challenges To Homeopathic
Improving this client's health required weaning her off all her
medications. This took time, patience and the support and advice
of her doctor. Suppressive medications only SUPPRESS, they
do not treat the cause of disease, they only mask the symptoms. In
all cases, they cause side effects and shifts in organ functions
that prevent the body from naturally healing itself.
Homeopathy was given and works with medications, but removing
suppressive drugs allows for a faster recovery because true healing
By the end of her homeopathic care she was drug
free, energetic and optimistic about her new found health!
She was her generous and giving self to her family, church and
community. Most importantly, she was symptom and pain free.
Her energy returned, she feels joy in her life and recently
celebrated her daughter's wedding day, in good health. She
has now learned how to maintain her health and lifestyle and is
committed to that lifestyle, thanks to homeopathy.
