Recognising and resolving pre-autistic traits using homoeopathy. 'He eats only white foods: sugar, eggs, coconut and grated bones'.
As homoeopaths we can view selective eating, or picky eating, as the tip of the iceberg of underlying problems such as anxiety, depression, sensory processing disorder, autism and ADHD. Homoeopathy has a profound role to play in early intervention, as well as the ongoing issues of older children, to halt progress towards deeper challenges.
Join us as Linlee Jordan explains how her fascination with obsessive French composer Erik Satie and his rigid diet lead her to explore colour-based food choices and selective eating. With a special focus on people who hover around the spectrum, a new world of understanding is opened up to us about causation and behavioural presentation.

About this webinar:
After delving into the life of obsessive French composer Erik Satie and his rigid diet, Linlee found it easy to see why he has become the poster child of the Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID) diagnosis and more broadly of Asperger's or autism.
Linlee became fascinated by Satie's white meal preferences. This was the leaping off point to explore colour-based food choices and selective eating, with a special focus on people who hover around the spectrum. Early signs of autism are important rubrics. A new world of understanding opened up about causations and presentations of some behaviours and the materia medica which they were illustrating.
Foods that are white may be more tolerable for individuals with sensory issues and hypersensitivity. Remedies explored include Carcinosinum, the mammal remedies, the Lacs, Saccharum and Triticum vulgare.
Linlee will share cases still in progress and some resolved cases which were once in the mystery basket. Two mammal remedy cases included are of squirrel and orangutan.
