CEASE therapy was developed by Dutch physician Tinus Smits who was looking for a way to help children with autism. CEASE stands for Complete Elimination Autism Spectrum Expression and Dr. Smits helped well over 300 children with autism prior to his death in 2010. While his method was originally designed for children with autism, Dr. Smits and those that he trained have experienced success treating a number of conditions including MS, Chronic Fatigue, allergies, ear infections, hyperactivity, and detoxification.
CEASE utilizes several holistic elements to form a systematic approach that helps people detox from physical and energetic blockages while bringing balance to the mind and body. The elements used in CEASE are:
Homeopathy – The use of remedies in different potencies. The remedies are produced by dilution and succession and are labeled according to their potency. 30C is a relatively low potency, which is more active on the physical plane, while 200C is a medium potency and 1M or 10M are high potencies that are effective for emotional and mental issues. Single homeopathics and blends are helpful for children with autism.
Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, the founder of homeopathy, noted that if a certain potency had an impact, but had not yet finished healing the problem, often times a higher potency was needed to continue the healing process.
Isotherapy – The use of pathogenic substances that have been prepared in homeopathic potencies. For instance if a particular medication such as Prednisone is suspected to play a part in an illness, the homeopathic version of Prednisone will be used to help the body rid itself of the physical and energetic imprints that it has left on the body.
Inspiring Homeopathy – A modern form of classical homeopathy developed by Dr. Smits to treat universal human problems. Some themes uncovered by Dr. Smits include: want of self-confidence, lack of love or self-love, not being grounded in the body, lack of protection, old traumas, etc. The most frequently prescribed inspiring homeopathic remedies for children with autism are cuprum metallicum and saccharum officinale. Cuprum helps with obsessiveness, inflexibility and tension (including tics and head banging). Saccharum officinale helps to restore emotional contact with parents, siblings and classmates.
Orthomolecular Medicine – Nutritional supplements in therapeutic doses to nourish the brain and restore proper intestinal function. In my practice, I have found enormous benefit from adding on Original Quinton Seawater Minerals, probiotics and enzymes to the traditional vitamin C, magnesium, zinc and the fish oil recommended by Dr. Smits.
Nutrition – Give your child the best nutrition available, such as fresh organic foods. Avoid packaged meals and snacks. By doing this you will prevent further toxicity from heavy metals, pesticides, flavor enhancers like MSG, artificial sweeteners, color additives, GMOs, preservatives and other waste products. Many studies have shown that there is a link between MSG and obesity, diabetes, migraines and headaches, autism, ADHD, and even Alzheimer’s.
In addition to the above four tenets developed by Dr. Smits I have had wonderful success in my practice helping numerous children with autism, including my own daughter by adding additional elements. Since each child is unique, not all of these may be used. As part of a thorough intake process, I work with parents to help determine what additional elements would bring benefit to their child. Some of the items that are considered include:
Original Quinton Seawater Minerals – This is the very first step I often use with clients. These minerals are harvested from a unique plankton bloom in the Atlantic Ocean in France, which is the highest area of biological activity in the Atlantic. Long-term, these minerals support the biological terrain, which is the space in between cells, where most of our body functions are either carried out or supported. This means improved cellular nutrition, detoxification, natural re-hydration, immune system support and intestinal support. After the initial two weeks on Quinton, we can determine if the person is ready to begin:
Probiotics – Several studies have found support for probiotics in helping to reduce gastrointestinal issues, reduce the D-arabinitol in the urine of children with autism, improved allergies as well as behavior and improved digestion by aiding in the repair of the gut lining.
Recent information suggests that probiotics also help the body to detoxify. The American Academy of Pediatrics states that 90% of methylmercury is excreted through the bile in feces and scientist believe that with a large number of probiotic bacteria, mercury can effectively be driven towards expulsion and prevent any recycling of toxic mercury.
REBA (Psychosomatic energetics) – The REBA test device was developed by Reimar Banis, M.D. and Ulrike Banis, M.D. and the device utilizes frequencies that resonate with our brainwaves to measure the four energy channels – vital, emotional, mental and causal – and determine if they are out of balance. These imbalances create “conflicts” within our minds and body that can create illnesses. Knowing where your child is out of balance and using remedies to help bring them back to balance is quite helpful.
Bach Flower Essences – Discovered by English physician and homeopath, Dr. Edward Bach in the 1930s, these essences are homeopathically prepared remedies from the blooms of plants, bushes and trees. There are 38 flower essences that correspond to mental and emotional states.
A study conducted at the Penn State Hershey Medical Center found that Bach Flower Essences effectively managed the symptoms of ADHD. Essences used for the trial included Rescue Remedy, Cherry Plum, Vervain, Crab Apple and Walnut. Another study conducted by Primary Health Care Centers of California found that 87.4% of patients who were treated with Bach Flower Essences reported good or very good results with their mental and emotional health.
The important thing to note is that AUTISM IS TREATABLE and you have every reason to hold onto hope that can help bring your child to balance. Long ago autism was thought to be a lifelong condition, but we now know that with proper therapies and treatments many people overcome autism.
CEASE Therapy is clinically proven, well researched and individualized treatment protocol that integrates the best homeopathic approaches as an overlay to the detoxification process. The benefits of CEASE Therapy include:
- Individualized treatment plan specific to each person
- Custom-made remedy packets specific to each person
- Resolution of digestive and gut-related issues
- Improvement of brain function
- Profound, deep-healing effect, physically, emotionally and mentally
- CEASE Protocol addresses causes, not just symptoms, including damage caused by vaccinations, iatrogenic drugs, and medications.
- CEASE Protocol heals traumas of physical, emotional and chemical exposure
J.B. Handley of Generation Rescue has this to say: “The CEASE approach stands out among many others for its clarity, simplicity and focus on cause.”
Obstacles to curing children
The main obstacle to curing children seems to be the lack of information from parents about causes. When important events in the life story of a child are overlooked or unknown, an essential key to healing can be missed.
Vulnerable brain of unborn and small children
During pregnancy and the first two years of life, the brain is extremely vulnerable and should be protected as much as possible. That’s why medications during and after pregnancy including vaccinations need to be addressed. Even imprints in the energetic field of the father and mother before pregnancy can be passed to the child by energetic transfer.
