A lecture from the conference on Autopathy, February 2019

A girl, 171 cm / 62 kg, from first physiological pregnancy, prolonged birth after induction, postpartum adaptation and normal development, breastfed for over a year, the mother cares for healthy nutrition, leads a macrobiotic lifestyle. From the common childhood diseases, she had only chickenpox, was healthy until going to the nursery. In the children’s collective frequent catarrh of the upper respiratory tract, 3x inflammation of the middle ear, 2x with the necessity of paracentesis, about 5x she took antibiotics of the penicillin group. She is of slender to asthenic body type, a few years ago she began to dance competitively and since then she has been sick only rarely.

She learns well, the school does not cause her any problems, is popular in the team, allopathic medication HAK (hormonal contraceptives) – also because of acne.

Surgery – appendicitis acuta at 3 years of age, hypertrophic tonsils removed at 5 years.

Injuries – at the age of 14, injury to the right ankle when dancing.

HAK – Yadine stopped during infectious mononucleosis to improve liver enzymes, now she takes NaturComp Baby.

Abstinent, non-smoker, spelt or green coffee, not roasted.

Allergies – spring pollen allergy to birch – polinosa.

History of the present illness: in August 2018 great fatigue, myalgia and muscle weakness, symptoms of starting virus infection, suddenly fever up to 40°C, headaches, sore throat with plaque, pseudomembranous angina mainly right-sided, with severe pain when swallowing, hypertrophic tonsils. Under the impression that it is a case of streptococcal angina, prescribed were antibiotics Augmentin. The symptoms and fever did not improve nor disappear, on the contrary, persistent maculo-papulous exanthosis gradually appeared on the trunk and limbs, also watery eyes, eyelid swelling, subicteric sclerae, lymphadenopathy – dough-like swelling of nodal, nuchal, axillary nodes with severe pain when swallowing, rhinophonia and bad breath, lack of appetite, abdominal pain, darker urine, exhaustion, hepatosplenomegaly. After 3 days, antibiotic therapy was discontinued with diagnosis of suspected infectious mononucleosis, which was confirmed by laboratory tests. A complication was serous meningitis. The girl was admitted to an infection clinic.

In the blood count was initially leukocytosis with lymphocytosis and monocytosis with large atypical lymphocytes, neutropenia and mild thrombocytopenia and autoimmune hemolytic anemia. Liver tests – elevation of aminotransferases ALT 7.6 and AST 6.8 and LDH 4.9.

Positive were – demonstration of heterophilic antibodies – Paul-Bunnel reaction and the rise of specific IgM and IgG antibodies against VCA – capsid antigen and EA – early antigen indicative of primary EBV infection.

To increase CRP with the complication by bacterial superinfection with Streptococci, crystalline penicillin G 6x 1000000 IU was applied, Solu-Medrol 125 mg was administered for 6 days due to the significant findings in the throat and swallowing problems and serous meningitis.

Course of treatment:

As the attending physician at the infection clinic was a family friend and was not against alternative and unconventional medicine, we started intravenous infusion therapy with vitamin C 15 g and glutation 1200 mg, magnesium 2 g orally and micro immunotherapy in low homeopathic dilutions 2LInflam and 2LEBV already at the hospital bed.

In addition, autopathy BSB (autopathic preparation boiled saliva and breath produced in an autopathic bottle) daily with an increase of 0,5 liters every other day. She started with BSB from 4 liters, after 12 days she was released for home treatment and continued with BSB 10 liters every second day.

The girl’s condition improved rapidly and significantly after this treatment, blood counts and liver tests almost normalized within 14 days – AST 1.52, ALT 1.03, LDH 4.1, afebrile, persistent itchy rash that subsided only slowly, persistent fatigue and weakness.

Fourth week BSB 12 l 3x a week and the next month 2x a week BB (boiled breath) 15 liters every 14 days and 16 liters every 14 days.

In the third month she applied intestinal nosode for cleansing (see Autopathic self-help) once a week for 12, 14, 16 and then 18 liters.

After 8 weeks the laboratory results normalized and she started to go to school, after the exanthema her skin had slightly lighter little patches, the fatigue increased and she was more susceptible to even a slight dietary error, she complained that she still did not feel completely fresh in the morning, she seemed to be more susceptible to fatigue, she complained of lack of concentration and fatigue during learning.

An additional autopathy bottle was used for the application of Prana 5 – starting with 2x a week 9 liters for 14 days and 10 liters another 14 days 2x a week.

After 12 weeks she was feeling well, not tired, blood counts, biochemistry and liver tests were within normal limits and she started to train again a little.

In addition, her acne has improved significantly without taking HAK, she generally feels more vital than before the infectious mononucleosis. And as a bonus, she says that she has far less pain during menses, even though he has been without HAK for nearly 4 months and will not return to HAK use.

Ongoing therapy:

After this, only autopathy from Prana 5, one month 1x a week 15 liters and the next month 1x in 10 days 16 liters. This dilution was the most invigorating for her, she always felt flood of fine energy after the application.

Now after 5 months she feels well, she is not tired, the blood count, biochemistry and liver tests are within the norm. Despite her doctor’s recommendation she has been training 5x a week and since February she has been involved in competitions.

Thanks to autopathy, after a relatively difficult course of infectious mononucleosis, she quickly returned to normal and even tells of greater vitality than she had before. In conventional treatment of infectious mononucleosis, fatigue and lack of concentration often persist a long time, often resulting in a chronic fatigue syndrome.

We will meet again in this hall of the Masaryk college in Prague on the 1st of February 2020.


Webinars introducing to the basics of autopathy are organised in English for international therapists, medical practitioners and persons interested in self-healing.
